Telus and Samsung are looking to hook-up 50 lucky people across this country with a shiny new Galaxy S Fascinate smartphone. To win, just be one of the first 10 people to check in on Gowalla at a participating location and you’re going home with a cool little robot in your pocket. I really like this check-in-to-win contest as it means you don’t have to camp out all night. It doesn’t matter if you get to the store 3 hours before it opens or 10 minutes before. Just be one of the first 10 to check in and you win. Pretty cool eh? And you’ll know if you’re one of those 10, because Gowalla will pop up a notification telling you so!
Now for the fine print – there are 5 stores participating across the country. They are: Toronto Eaton Center, Square One in Mississauga, Chinook Center in Calgary, Pacific Center in Vancouver, and Fairview Point Claire in Montreal. Each location may have their own opening hours, please check the Telus website for details about each location.
If you don’t win instantly this Thursday, don’t worry, you’re still entered to win $4,000 CAD and a Fascinate. You can check in to any of the participating Telus stores (once per day) between the 12th and the 26th to be entered into this secondary draw. So I guess they’re really giving away 51 devices… Anyway, start checking out the hours for your local Telus and planning your excuse for being late to work on Thursday.
