The 2016 Annual Giveaway Extravaganza Winners!


Wow – another massive Giveaway Extravaganza in the books! Yesterday was pretty crazy for sure, with what can only described as an absolute crapton of people stopping by the site to enter the dozen giveaways.  You’ve once again stated loud and clear that you really like free sports gadgets!

This morning I’ve gone through and removed any accidental (or otherwise) duplicates of comments.  I also ensured that any comments that got tangled up in the SPAM filters were carefully put back in place. You were allowed one comment per giveaway, though you could enter as many giveaways as you’d like.  Thus everyone is all accounted for (once per giveaway)!

The Winners:

From there it was off to Random.org for the winners.  Here’s the full tally of winners and their comments.

Thanks for the support!


Of course, the giveaway extravaganza wouldn’t be possible without the support of Clever Training.  They’re my partner here on the site and sell just about every sports tech gadget around.  And not only that, but as a DCR reader you’ll save 10% off anything you purchase with them (or points back) – either via the VIP club for all items or DCR reader coupon code for most items (DCR10BTF), plus free US shipping for orders over $75!  And don’t forget about Clever Training Europe now!

Or, if you’re more the Amazon type – then just whack the Amazon button below before you start your shopping.  It need not be electronic related. Baby wipes, batteries, or a bee hive (yes, you can buy those on Amazon) – whatever you order, hit the logo below (or on the sidebar) first and it supports the site. Super simple!


Below is a listing of all the products that were given away yesterday, as well as all the links to reviews and to purchase/support the site.

    A big THANKS to Ray and CleverTraining for this enormous giveaway!

  79. Moad

    Great job on the giveaway Ray :)

    Quick question : why is it written: next to all winners date/hour of posting? I’m guessing there is a technical reason but it could appear weird :$

    • Oh, that’s just WordPress since I’m logged in as an admin I can edit comments (i.e. if someone mistypes a broken URL, etc…). Sometimes I remember to use In-Private mode when screenshotting, so it doesn’t show that. But this time I didn’t remember to.

  80. Charlie

    congratulations guys

  81. Frank Z

    Thanks Ray! Always good fun to enter your giveaways.

  82. Dam… was really hoping to win something…

    To you winners out there, you have better have some fun with your new ‘toys’ for me!

  83. Jet

    thanks again for hosting this, ray!

  84. Ramon

    Well Done, amazing action and congrats to the Winners..
    Enjoy the toys!
