Giveaway Winner: The You Didn’t Get What You Wanted $500 Gadget Giveaway

This past week was the giveaway for all those left disappointed by their Christmas tree offerings.  No, not the pine needles, but rather the lack of proper sport gadgetry!  Some 5,928 of you entered in expressing some form of displeasure at your presents, as well as hope for what might be at the end of the commenting tunnel.

So, I headed over to my BFF and stuck in the number:

Then it was back to the post to find #766:

Congrats Peejers, you’re the winner of…well…whatever the heck you want with a $500 credit!

As for everyone else?  Well, you can still go buy what you really wanted from Clever Training, and you’ll still save 10% on basically everything they sell, unless it’s already on some sort of big sale.  From GPS watches to trainers to power meters, and even gel packets.

Thanks to them for the giveaway, and everyone for the support!

P.S. – Don’t forget to stay tuned for CES 2016 announcements this week!  I’ll be busy on Twitter, as well as on the blog with boatloads of planned releases and announcements.  It’s shaping up to be a very solid start to the year for fitness related products.  For the winner, they’re welcome to wait to see what comes out of the week before spending their $500 at Clever Training.

    Congrats Peejers.
    Spend wisely!
    Second thoughts – just go crazy and get stuff you wouldn’t normally buy.
    (A power meter is a super idea).
    Happy new year all.

    Wanted to say thanks again to Ray and Clever Training. My goodies shoes up on Friday Garmin Edge 520 and Varia radar. Yesterday I attached them and set them up.and did my first ride with them. Crazy weather for January, nice weather for riding bikes. Both great additions to my tech gear. Thanks.
