This dad blogger is giving away two HP notebooks. Today is the start of the HP Back to School: Better Together Giveaway on my dad blog. Thanks to Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, and Timbuk2, Daddy Forever is giving away a HP DV6 Laptop, a HP Mini 110 Netbook, and a Timbuk2 notebook bag to one lucky winner. If the winner is located outside of the USA, a HPShopping.com credit will be given for the value of the notebooks companion bundle. My contest runs September 2nd through September 6th (Pacific time: UTC-7 time zone). The winner will be announced on Monday, September 7th. The winner will have 48 hours to claim the prizes (be sure to look for the winner announcement on Monday).
How to Enter
There are four ways to enter the HP Notebooks Giveaway. You can enter up to four times, but only once in each category. No sad stories, bribes, or blood sacrifices please (the winner will be randomly selected). Below are the four ways you can enter:
Select Your Own HP Companions
HP is giving away the DV6 laptop and the Mini 110 netbook as a companion set. In other words, the DV6 is your main computer and the Mini 110 is your computer on the go. If you could pick your own companion set, which computers would you select from the HP web site? Let me know by leaving a comment. You can select the DV6 OR the Mini 110 as part of your combo, but you can’t select the DV6 and Mini 110 together (ie: DV6 and xyz OR Mini 110 and abc, but NOT DV6 and Mini 110 — that would be too easy). You can select two HP notebooks or a HP notebook and a HP desktop computer as your companion bundle.
Suggest a Mom or Dad Blog
In the comments area, recommend a dad or mom blog. List the title of the blog and the web address. To prevent copying, you can’t suggest a mom or dad blogger that someone else has already recommended. You also can’t suggest Daddy Forever or your own blog. By mom or dad blog, I’m going to define it as a blog written by a father or mother. (Note: Some comments are held in moderation for various reasons and will be inserted in the appropriate time slot once the comment has been approved. If this results in a duplicate of your suggestion, you may recommend another mom or dad blog. It’s your responsibility to check before the deadline.)
Tweet or Retweet About the Laptop Giveaway
You can enter by tweeting about the HP Notebooks Giveaway. Use this retweet link (you need to be logged into Twitter) or write your own tweet. Be sure to include the url to this post (http://daddyforever.com/2009/09/02/hp-laptops-notebook/ or the tiny url version) and the hash text (#HPBTS) so I can find it. It would be a good idea to let me know about your tweet in the comments area or via the contact form (just in case I missed the tweet).
Write About the Laptops Giveaway
If you have a blog or web site, write about my HP notebooks giveway and link to this post (http://daddyforever.com/2009/09/02/hp-laptops-notebook/). Let me know the URL of your post in the comments area
or via the contact form(in case the trackback doesn’t show up).
