I'm always entering contests. Some of them are ones that I hear about here, and others I see on the web. Because I register all of the parts I buy, I got an email invitation, and entered a contest over at Sapphire's home page.

I just won a game code for a game,.........Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Congrats on the win ! with the Deus Ex game  yep Sapphire has some pretty sweet opportunity for those that register product and the Sapphire Clubs [Gold] ..Some times it easy to spot a contest by helping others troubleshoot in tech forums by looking up product information and website.Other times it's easy to see what other forum pals & gals are doing with social-media which also play a big part in contests.these days .Some companies like NZXT have had a scavenger hunt with their products and required a pretty sharp eye with the product pages to submit an entry..Some Sapphire contests also reacquired submitted answer to identify a certain product or features.Other contests require some review reading and participation of sorts.Which is pretty much a Win /Win situation for both.

Guess it depends on how ya look at it.Yep contest and involvement can-do a lot for this guy  just by playing.[:)]  -replay

I have won like 2 things in life. I'm not a very lucky person. I got a 16GB SD card a while back for reviewing it. That was cool. But that's the most I've won.

Dude, that is awesome; congrats! Let us know how you like it. I heard from a friend the game was pretty cool, he said you have to choose/define your style of game play at the beginning. He said it would be easy to play the game through multiple times if you use different styles of game play.

I will totally agree with you on that one 🙂 I am pretty sure we have seen each other around on their page. It seems like every week they are giving away peripherals, games, and those vid cards

I have to agree with you there, I too seem to have very bad luck with contests seeing as how I have barely won any... But these contests do have the good side effect of building a community and most of the posts I have made are because of participating in various contest like these.

The plus is that while I may be competing, I'm also contributing to a community as a whole.

looks like a sweet giveaway rrplay, but not for me, (not for Canadians)

I've won a few cool things over the years, some I've had to do crazy [censored]to win (ex. my Zagg tattoo lol) but I find it fun. I don't mind a few hoops to jump through. Besides, I find out about a lot of cool products and websites through contests.  For example, I found HotHardware when I entered a video contest a while back here, I submitted the Star Trek, Spock video, which I think is still up on Viddler somewhere LOL
I didn't win 😞 but I stuck around because I enjoy the articles and people here!

I can't stand voting contests though. I find they are the hardest to win, especially when you just can't seem to get your friends to help. Also there are too many cheaters out there, 'buying' votes etc. I think the one I'm in right now is going to be my last!! UGH 😞  

P.s any of you facebookers can help if you want, it ends tonight, you just click the green thumbs UP button beside my pic:  http://apps.facebook.com/promotionshq/contests/152421/voteable_entries/30481928

 I'm trying to win a canon camera [Y]

You certainly have done some crazy things for contests. I remember voting for you on Zagg daily for a little bit. Hows that iPad treating you?

I certainly would never put a tattoo on my body for a contest lol.

I agree voting contests drive me nuts I don't bother.  In all honesty the enter daily contests drive me pretty crazy too though I am sure it brings in a lot of advertising revenue to those sites.
