It’s that time of year again! Whether you say Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hannukkah, Happy Holidays or…bah humbug, most people are celebrating something wonderful this month. A few years ago, we started the 12 Days of Giveaways and have proudly made it our tradition where we get to give back to our readers and partners.
This year we have over $10,000 in prizes to give back to our readers!
Here’s how it works:
Starting December 3, we will launch a contest or two each day. On December 20, we will be randomly drawing names from all the entrants to announce all winners in one major post. Typically, most giveaways will run for 24 to 48 hours but for the big ones, we will have them active for three days (72 hours) or more. Along the way, we’ll be throwing in a few extra stocking stuffer giveaways as we had too many great gifts to choose from, so stay tuned on those surprise announcements.
The prizes will have something that appeals to everyone: gift cards, electronics, luxurious hotel experiences and some tasty treats too!
Here’s what you need do:
- Come back and visit the site often – this post will be updated daily.
- Sign up for our new weekly newsletter. This is a requirement for each giveaway.
- Follow @VancityBuzz, @crystal_kwon and @farhanmohamed to get the latest updates and breaking announcements and the hashtag #VcB12Days.
- Like us on Facebook.com/VCBuzz. Each giveaway will require this as well.
- After you’ve signed up for the newsletter and liked on Facebook, leave a comment (signing in with your email address) on the contest page to tell us you want to enter it!
A big thank you to our readers for your endless support and loyalty. 2013 has been a momentous year for us and we look forward to a lot of exciting developments to come in 2014!
