The luck of the iPad (Updated)

Many of you have read my iPad Me article. If you haven't please take a look. The post may make me sound a bit selfish but I would like to dedicate this post to helping you. In my search for getting a dollar from everyone I know, I have not just sat back and watched, but I have been actively involved in signing up for iPad giveaways to help my odds. I figure if my odds are not good enough to get $1 from 499 people, maybe they will be good enough to win one of these contests.

Here is a list of the places I have signed up for. I hope by giving you the opportunity it might help me out in one way or another. I also don't want to be known as the selfish one. Here you go.

I will start with the one that ends the soonest.

1. ebookfling is giving away an iPad. You need to sign up to start getting entries. Then you can like them on Facebook and share the giveaway on Facebook and Twitter for extra entries. Better hurry, this one ends tomorrow.

2. The next one is by a blog I just found today called The Centsible Life. You get one entry for commenting on the post, a second entry if you tweet the contest, and 10 entries if you blog about the giveaway. I’m posting this to enter into the contest offered by CheckNGo at The Centsible Life! I want to win the iPad 2! Enter to win here:

3. The last giveaway is from Fabulous Savings. The disclaimer here is it is just for College and University Students. Miss Tejota just helped me figure this out, you need to click through the Feature Merchants on the right side column. One of these will pop up the page to enter your school and find the "special" tweet. You can enter this once a day until May 9th.

Well I hope this helps. Hope you all have a great weekend dreaming of iPad.

4. I remembered that I had entered one more. The great benefit about this giveaway is they are throwing in a smartcover. It is from SuiteTuts and you can enter as many times as you want just by following them on twitter and re-tweeting this statement: "I just entered to win an #iPad2 & Smart Cover! #stcipad201 via @SuiteTuts"
It is yet to be determined win the contest will end.


  1. In regards to the Fabulous Savings contest you need to head to, then go to their featured merchants area on the site (in the middle of the page on the right) and click on each featured merchant link until you find the featured merchant links that has a pop-up on the page where you can input your school name and then send out the "special" tweet for the day. It appears to the be the same tweet each day, but I never take a chance in case they change it.

    If you win you need to be able to provide a copy of your school ID.

    Good Luck!!!

  2. Awesome, thanks for your help!
