HP Magic Giveaway: Enter our contest to win over $6,000 in electronics!

HP Magic Giveaway

So, a few days ago we told you about our HP Magic Giveaway, and how we’d be giving away an absolutely ridiculous amount of prizes to the winner. Now, we are announcing the the contest has officially started, and we’ve got the details on how you can enter to win. First, though, a refresher on what we are giving away:

Yes, you do see four computers listed, as well as a Media Center Extender. No, you aren’t dreaming. Yes, we (and ) are awesome. You want the goods? Here’s how to enter to win - we are making this super-simple:

  1. If you don’t have one already, sign up for a Gear Live account
  2. If you don’t have one already, sign up for a Twitter account
  3. Add the Gear Live Twitter account to your follow list
  4. On Twitter, post a tweet about our contest and link to this page. In the tweet, include the phrase “#glmagic”.
  5. Once that is done, leave a comment here in this post with a direct link back to your Tweet. Be sure you are signed in to your Gear Live account before you leave the comment.

Here’s an example of an appropriate Twitter entry:
“Entering to win a ton of HP gear! http://jk9.qlnk.net/ #glmagic”

BONUS ENTRIES: Want more chances to win? Share the link to our contests on the following sites, and leave us a comment linking to those as well:

  • Facebook: Shared Link
  • Del.icio.us bookmark
  • FriendFeed: Use Post a Link
  • Your blog: Have a site? Link to our contest on it!

Remember: The bonus entries are just that - bonus. In order to be eligible to win, you must complete the core Twitter requirements.

Now, as to the actual contest dates. The contest starts today, November 28th. You have until 11:59 PM PST on December 4 to enter your comments here on this post. We will then announce our winner, chosen randomly out of all valid entrants and bonus points, on December 5th. We are also going to encourage (but not require) you to think about donating a portion of the prize package to someone else. It can be a charity, a relative, friend, a fellow contest entrant - anyone. We can even handle the shipping to that third party for you. It’s all in the spirit of giving, and we will let you play Secret Santa, if you so choose.

The contest is open to anyone in the world, which is a rarity. If you are in the US, you’ll even have your tax burden taken care of. What more could you ask for? Now, good luck to all - comments are open!

Update: We’ve announced a winner - and a new contest!

I was allowed to post a comment with my twitter link, but then couldn’t post another with the bonus entries.  Also couldn’t edit my original comment.  I was “not authorized to perform that action”

I can’t comment, and YES my IP and user agent are exposed.  I used http://www.ioerror.us/ip/ to verify it. So there must be something else causing the error.

I couldn’t figure out the facebook thing, though.  I searched the help section for “shared link”, “link” and “external” and found nothing.  Bummer.  I could really have used that technology!

Okay, so in addition to the above,
I’m adding my blog,

So that’s two entries total.  (Darn that Facebook or it would be three!)

Ok so we all posted, the winner was supposed to be announced yesterday. What gives? Where is the winner announcement?

Amazing contest, huge opportunities here.



Dear GearLive,
    You guys have done a fantastic job in reaching out to your community along with HP. This idea of a giveaway is a fantastic way to show how much you care, but also test us on if we can care enough to share our fortune with others throughout the world. What you both are doing is really showing the world how you can spread the Christmas spirit to everyone anywhere in the world. I would also like to pre-congratulate the winner and ask that they will spread the HP Magic by sharing their winnings with other people throughout the world.
