We did this last year & darned if we don't find ourselves in the Christmas spirit again this year! Got the OK with Robin to have another VERY MERRY GIVEAWAY contest! And who can argue with some free stuff?
If you've bought anything from PINITECH *ever* or you're a new customer in December, you've got everything needed to enter the contest.
This year, let's get a little crazier. More prizes right off-the-bat and an option to convert to website credit for other PINITECH branded mods and gear. Hopefully we'll have more than the 14x entries we did last year. If not, once again the odds will be incredibly good -- which is fun too
One entry per person (ie. multiple posts will still count as a single entry).
You get an entry in one of the following ways:
1) Post a festive picture of something you purchased from PINITECH in-use. Add some holiday decorations, or a Christmas card in the background, take a picture with Santa or your dog dressed up as Santa, use Photoshop to create a winter scene.
2) **NEW FOR 2016** Use the meme generator at http://www.memebetter.com and create a funny (or serious if you want) meme with something from PINITECH in it. Try to keep it somewhat clean lol. I have no idea how this one might go over, but could add a bit of fun.
3) Post a comment about something you bought from Pinitech (ie. a diagnostic tool and how it's helped you troubleshoot, etc). Good comments are welcome. Bad comments should of course be heavily sugar coated
Winners will be selected at random the end of the drawing either via a random-number generator or the old "papers with names tossed into a hat" method. You have until end of day on 1/8/2017 to enter. Winners will be announced within 1 week from the end of the contest.
Anyone that has purchased anything from PINITECH may enter. New customers are also welcome to enter (ie. anyone that purchases anything in December). Winners will be verified via name as having been a past customer. So no shenanigans or you'll be disqualified and a new winner drawn!
Three prizes will be offered this year.
- MAIN PRIZE - Assembled 64 Switch Matrix Tester w/ assembled wire harness of your choice
(or you can convert that to $120 credit toward any "PINITECH" brand tools or mods)
- 2ND PLACE PRIZE - 64 Switch Matrix Tester PCB Kit + 1x unassembled wire harness of your choice
(or you can convert that to $60 credit toward any "PINITECH" brand tools or mods)
- 3RD PLACE PRIZE - 2x 6264 NVRAM
(or you can convert that to $30 credit toward any "PINITECH" brand tools or mods)
ADDITIONAL PRIZES MAY BE ADDED
If more than 30 entries are received I'll add a 4th place prize, if 40 entries are received I'll add a 5th place prize. Most likely the additional prizes will be smaller items like 1X NVRAM. Generally will try and keep it to about a 1:10 ratio in being able to win something since I'm a fan of good odds for contests. So the more people that enter, the more prizes that will get added.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
Several reasons. I'm in the Holiday Spirit and wanted to do something nice for past customers -- all the awesome people that have supported PINITECH over the years. I like giving back when I can & keeping it fun. It's also great hearing from customers that I otherwise might not here from since a lot of orders go out without hearing a blip from anyone, so this allows for a fun way to get some feedback.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Pinitech!!!
