We are just hours away from the drawing for the Grand Prize in our contest.
After a week of checking, rechecking and verifying, we have 717 entries. So at the very least, your odds are 1 in 717 that you will win this Grand Prize. Some of you will have even better odds because of the bonus entries you've picked up along the way.
A few things I should point out.
1 - There will be a video of the drawing. Please check the winner's name carefully. Some names are rather close. For example, we have a Michael Rubin and a Michael Reuben, no typo, two different people. There are also some first name only entries, like David, who won our Early Adopters prize. If a name like that comes up and you happen to have the same first name, please be patient and don't jump to any conclusions. We will now exactly which person that entry is associated with because...
2 - We have coded each entry, so we will know, right away, where that entry comes from. You might have noticed a two or three letter code next to each name in our other prize drawings. Well, that's our system that tracks all the entries. So no matter what name gets selected, we will know exactly where to find the place that entry came from, whether its from Twitter or a bonus entry from Facebook, or answering our Quarterback question. It took a lot of extra time to do this, but we want to make sure there are no disputes and that the person who wins this package will be the one who receives it.
3- Because we can trace back our entries, we will be able to verify that we have the right person with 100% certainty.
So we hope you all are as excited as we are to be giving this Grand Prize away. Good luck to all, and if you can tear yourself away from the Black Eyed Peas (and possibly the Puppy Bowl) for a moment, we will see you all at halftime.
