***iPAD 2 Giveaway Update: The contest is going to pause for a few days and will re-open back up soon. All entries gathered until this point (9:00 a.m. Central Time, August 15th) will be accepted. When the contest re-launches, I'll put the word back out there and more people can then sign up. We're just taking a short break. Thanks for reading!!***
My husband couldn't believe it. He's quite fond of the first iPad that we still don't have. I wish that I could enter my own giveaway, but, apparently, that is against the rules (sticklers!). Giveaway. Giveaway. It feels funny saying those words on my blog because this has not been the giveaway kind of place. In general, I plan to keep it that way, although giving something away here and there sounds kind of fun!
So, here's the deal. Vonage's new "Time To Call" App is sponsoring this giveaway. This app is a FREE download on your iPhone, iTouch or iPad that allows you to call overseas for incredibly cheap rates with exceptional clarity.
Other things you might want to know about this app:
* Pay per call and talk for up to 15 minutes to 100 countries for $1.99 or less (excluding applicable taxes)
* For an additional 90+ countries, talk up to 15-minutes for $2.99 to $9.99 (excluding applicable taxes)
* Bill directly to your iTunes account
* Works on Wi-Fi® worldwide
* Also for use on high quality 3G networks in the U.S. and Canada
* For a limited time, unused minutes can be used for additional calls
* No need to be a Vonage home customer, no hidden fees or monthly commitment.
Right now Vonage is having a limited time offer where our readers can download the Time to Call App and call up to 15 minutes for free. (No purchase required.) More info on that can be found here.
ONE lucky reader will win One (1) iTunes gift card for $15 and one (1) Apple gift card for the Apple iPad 2, 32 GB. Can you say money, money, muhhhh-nehhh, muuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhNEH?!
You must leave a separate comment for each way that you enter.
I know commenting on blogs is new for many of the people who are reading this right now. You don't have to sign up for anything to comment. Just click "Post A Comment" at the bottom of the page & then choose "anonymously" from the drop-down menu when it asks you how you want to comment. Be sure to write your name beside your comment, which can read something like "I liked your FB page & told you who I would call. -Kelley" and/or "I tweeted about this #timetocall contest. -Kelley" . The comments HERE on this post help me keep track of who has entered and how they did so. They're like the raffle tickets!
Entry #1: Follow Kelley's Break Room via Google Friend Connect (just click that "follow" button over on the right above all of those peoples' heads the orange letters you just read.)
Entry #2: Like Kelley's Break Room on Facebook AND leave a comment on the Facebook page telling me who you’d call overseas (For example, I would call Rod Stewart and ask him if he found his hair brush yet.) <---Don't tell me who you would call on THIS blog post. Tell me this information on my blog's Facebook page.
Entry #3: Tweet a link to this contest that includes @kelleysbreakrm and the hashtag #timetocall.
**Since this is such a large, awesome prize to giveaway, I will only count the entries that are completed correctly**
The winner will be chosen at random and announced by September 3rd.
Fineprint: ***If you want to increase your chances of winning, Vonage is giving away 74 MORE iPad 2s on different blogs.
