Another year goes past – and another huge Giveaway Extravaganza is now complete! This year was pretty crazy once again, with boatloads upon boatloads of people stopping by the site to enter the dozen giveaways. As with every year – y’all really like free stuff!
Here’s a little 30-second snippet of what roughly 30 minutes looked like on the site’s real-time stat traffic (Google Analytics). This was from the start of the Wahoo KICKR CORE + KICKR CLIMB giveaway (so about 10AM US EST, hence why the US West Coast is still pretty quiet while Europe at 4PM CET is quite busy):
Thanks to everyone who entered in the DCR Extravaganza yesterday! I’m still finalizing the winners, but in the meantime here’s what real-time users looked like yesterday for a few minutes at the start of one of the giveaway. Yikes! It’s a time-lapse from Google Analytics. pic.twitter.com/6834H8iTNM

The most popular? The Fenix 5 Plus. But only just barely, and only after a re-tally. Prior to running a de-duplication sweep (for things like duplicate entries on the same giveaway), the Wahoo combo was in the lead. But once I cleaned up the duplicates on that one, Garmin edged out just barely!
Garmin Fenix 5 Plus: 5,855 entries
Wahoo KICKR CORE+CLIMB: 5,816 entries
Now some of that was mostly because those two units were both big ticket items as well as timed nicely for both North/South/Central American and European/African time zones.
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 (this took about 8 hours of time). You were allowed one comment per giveaway, though you could enter as many different giveaways as you’d like. Thus everyone is all accounted for (once per giveaway)!
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 – we split the costs of the Giveaway Extravaganza. 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, with the same 10% savings code!
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!
