For those loyal readers who were around last year, you’ll remember the massive Giveaway Extravaganza I launched last year about this time. Normally when I do a traditional giveaway, I giveaway a single item and the entry period lasts a few days or so. But with the Extravaganza style, it’s sorta like a Woot-off. Which means that I’m giving away one item at a time, but the entry period only lasts three hours for each item!
Last year I gave away a slew of items. It was a mixed collection of new items, and items that companies didn’t want back from reviews (I don’t keep any items post-review). This year though, it’s all new items. The giveaway is sponsored by both myself and Clever Training. We’re going splitsies on it!
Except this year, we’re going big. Really…really…really big. About $5,000 worth of giveaway items big. I’m pretty much taking the most popular items that I know you want to have – and giving them away. Of course, telling you what those items are would take away half the fun! Well, at least my fun.
Thus you’ll want to set whatever alarm clocks you need, to ensure you’re ready to start pouncing at 12:00AM Eastern Time. I suggest repeating alarms for every 3 hours.
You’ll need to follow the entry instructions for each giveaway you’ll enter throughout the day (essentially just leaving a comment). Every three hours on the dot, a new giveaway will appear (and the previous one will close). To sum up, it’ll work like this:
12:00AM US Eastern on Wednesday– First giveaway begins!
3:00AM US Eastern – First giveaway closes, second giveaway opens!
6:00AM US Eastern – Second giveaway closes, third giveaway opens…
…and on and on every three hours until midnight! For those not familiar with US timezones, here’s a handy-dandy page to help you figure out what time it is there. Of course, all international readers are welcome to enter and win – that’s just how I roll.
My only hint is that almost everything I’m giving away tomorrow has been launched this year. Crazy huh?
Get ready to rumble! And thanks for reading and supporting the blog!
(Note: Leaving a comment on this post doesn’t enter you into anything.)
Thanks, Ray! Looking forward to it. The winners will be randomly drawn, right?
Yes, randomly using Random.org.

Very nice! Great web site 🙂 Thanks!
Looking forward to it! I just stated reading your blog about a month ago. Love it!!
Looking forward to it!
Tomorrow is my 30th birthday so I should at least get automatic entry for each one…
that first entry is going to make my morning swim slightly more unpleasant. I don’t like 5am swims, let alone after a midnight wakeup!
This is a very useful website! It become somewhat of an authority on reviews of triathlon equipment and has been very useful for me in the purchase of some of my more expensive gear.
I NEED A KICKR!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking forward to it.
You’re the man, Ray. Excited to see what you’ve got this year!
Super excited…. 🙂
WOOT! Can’t wait for midnight to roll around. Less than 2 hours to go!
Yeah I’d like to buy some DCR stock, if possible. Keep us posted when you’re going to do your IPO!
Thanks Ray! Your the Gift that keeps on Giving!
Is this a first to post giveaway or a random number generator give away or the cutest profile picture giveaway? Cool beans regardless. I do like your website/ blog.
Hi ray, what if there are two readers of your website at home? Still one post ?

Does entering twice double or half my chances? 😉
You rock Ray. And for all the work you put into these reviews, it should be the other way around-we should be giving you stuff!
I bought TRT2 three month ago. Did not thought that I will start swimming and cycling. So already looking for change! Crossing fingers!
I’ve got sunshine in my stomach
Like I just rocked my baby to sleep.
No idea about the timezones, haven’t had my morning coffee yet, so no idea if i’m in time or not. But i’m in for a nifty watch 🙂
