Howdy, gerbils! As we're sure you're aware, TR's 12 days of giveaways have just started. Besides handing out community awards (the first of which was offered yesterday), we'll also be giving away prizes by random draw. Between the community prizes and random draws, we have roughly $4,500 of hardware to give away. How's that for a hardware giveaway?
Fill out the form below and answer the question in it, and you stand a chance of getting some sweet hardware in the mail during the coming weeks, courtesy of the TR Santa. Don't worry, we won't be using your information for any purpose other than this contest. You'll also have to answer a simple question so that we can separate wheat from chaff: in the graphics card section of the our October System Guide, which three brands of graphics cards did we recommend?
Rules and regulations
The random draw contests are only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (except Quebec).
Only one entry per person, household, or e-mail address will be considered. Multiple entries per person, household or address are not permitted. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.
We will be accepting entries between the time this post goes up and 12:00 CT of December 28, 2016. We'll then choose winners for the random draws in certain days of "TR's 12 days of giveaways" initiative, from among all eligible entries. The winners will be announced on the site on certain days up to December 29, 2016. The winners will be notified by e-mail, and must claim their prizes within 72 hours, or they will forfeit them, and we will select a new winner.
Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share their address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. Any prizes will be shipped to the address provided in this form. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR also reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way, or for any other reason, without explanation.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. TR and the giveaway sponsors are not responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as repetitive strain injury, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in the comments thread on this article. Happy hunting!
