UPDATE (August 21st, 2013): Congratulations to our winner, Lilibeth Michelle Solinap
Update Sept. 1st: Michelle and I spent the past week trying to figure out how to send the ipad mini I bought from Canada to the Phillipines. I won’t dwell on any details, but let’s just say that it was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be, and in the end I resorted to refunding the ipad mini I had bought, sent her the money via paypal, and asked her to buy the ipad mini at an Apple reseller where she lives. All’s well that ends well! And next time I run a contest like this I’ll know what to do!
A big thank-you to all the contestants that have participated. Please stay tuned for future contests – this won’t be the last!
Win a FREE 32GB iPad Mini OR US$429 – Your Choice!
Contest Instructions and Rules:
To be eligible, you must be 18 years or over and have a valid email address. It doesn’t matter which country you live in. Here’s what to do:
1)First of all, sign up for the contest using the form below.
2)Then, go earn at least 1 point by the contest deadline (11:59pm, August 20th, 2013, EST). After you’ve signed up, you will be shown how to earn quick and easy points. Since each point you earn will be one ballot, the more points you earn the higher your chances of winning!
3)Whitelist us in your email settings to be notified if you win – please whitelist emails from “contestburner.com” and “itouchapps.net” so my emails to you won’t end up in your junk folder. (Click here for simple instructions on how to whitelist.)
4)To see how many points you and other contest participants have racked up, CLICK HERE. (NOTE: Don’t expect your points to show up right away after you’ve done something to earn them, because the data only updates itself once every so often.)
[contestburner_entry_form contest="itouchapps_net_ipad_mini_giveaway_ends_august_20th_2013"]Winner will be chosen randomly by software. Each point you earn will be one ballot. So the more points you earn, the higher the chance you have of winning.
I will retain your name and email to send you updates of the contest, notify you of future contests, and notify you of site updates (only if they are especially interesting, and no more than once in a while).
Claiming the Prize:
-The winner will be notified by email, so be sure to check your email around the time the contest ends. I will ask you (if you’re the winner) to provide a phone number that you can be reached at, for these reasons:
1)To confirm that you are a real person.
2)To ask you for your physical address where I can send the ipad mini to, or for your paypal address to send the money to if that’s what you prefer.
3)So that I will be able to text you to remind you to send me a picture of you holding the ipad mini after you receive it, which I will be posting to itouchapps.net and our facebook page as proof that the contest isn’t a scam. After I receive the picture I will immediately delete your phone number from my records – that’s a personal promise.
-As soon as the contest ends (at 11:59pm on August 20th, 2013), I will use a software to pick a random winner and notify the winner by email. The person will have 48 hours to respond back. If I don’t receive a response after 48 hours, a new winner will be randomly picked and notified by email. I will keep doing this until a winner responds within the 48 hour timeframe.
-As soon as the winner is finalised, I will place the order for the ipad mini online or buy it at my local Apple retail store. Or if you (if you’re the winner) choos to receive the money instead, I will paypal this to you within 48 hours. I cannot guarantee what time you’ll receive the ipad mini because that would depend on how fast Apple can ship out the product, and on how soon the courier can deliver it.
-If you live in Canada or the US and you win, I (from Canada) or my friend (from the US) will order the ipad mini from the online Apple store and have it shipped to you directly.
-If you live outside of Canada or the US and you win, I will buy the ipad mini from my local Apple retail store and ship it to you via courier (most likely FEDEX or DHL, depending on where you live).
-You’ll need to give me an actual address to ship the ipad to, no APO/FPO address or post office box.
-You will be responsible for any duties/customs fees resulting from the shipment. I will specify it as a “gift” which should eliminate the fees for you. But if for some reason you are asked to pay a fee to pick up the parcel you will be responsible for this.
-If you live outside of Canada or the US, understand that the ipad mini will lose its warranty once I send it outside of the country it is purchased from. Once the ipad mini is shipped, I cannot be held responsible for any damage it may sustain, either during transit or from using it. I have also heard of cases where electronic devices are sometimes confiscated by customs. Events like these would be beyond my control, and I cannot be held responsible for such unfortunate and uncontrollable events.
-Alternatively, if you win and prefer to receive money instead of the ipad mini, or if due to reasons beyond my control I’m not able to mail the ipad mini to you (e.g. your local laws don’t allow for the ipad to be imported), I can paypal $429 to you (the price of a 32GB ipad mini), plus paypal fees. That’s $429 in US dollars (plus paypal fees), subject to the exchange rate between US dollars and your currency at the time I send the money.
-If your country is not supported by paypal (check here to see: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/), I will contact you to arrange an alternate payment method such as a bank draft, or transferring funds to you via moneybookers etc. Since this is unlikely to be the case, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Rest assured, I’ll do what I need to in order to get the money to you.
Lastly: I, Amy Cheung, reserve the right to amend the above contest rules at any time and as I see fit.
That’d be all! Sorry for the long read! If you’re still with me – Have Fun and Good Luck!
