Tweet #OnlySony Sweeps

by Callan 12/09/2013

 

It’s that time of the year again! The holidays are upon us and they’ve brought with them chunky sweaters, first snows, gingerbread lattes and of course, shopping. As you’ve all been crossing off the items on your gift list, you may have seen some of our holiday campaign and noticed our tagline for the season – Only With Sony. (If you haven’t seen it yet, well, now you have…) And since we always love a good reason to give you all free gadgets, we decided to celebrate this Only With Sony sentiment and the holidays with a little sweepstakes. Let’s start with what you could win.

We’ve got a couple of crow favorites to give away so we’ll be handing out one prize for each day of the week. Here’s what’s on the list:


Day One: 
          HD Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer (HT-ST7) – We know you’ve all been clamoring for this bad boy since we first launched it, and with 7 amps and 9 speakers, we weren’t surprised. This holiday season we wanted to give you an opportunity to get your hands on one – to keep or to make you one of the best gift givers in history.

Day Two:            VAIO® | Flip PC – It’s brand spanking new and you’ll be one of the first few to own one. The new Flip easily flips (get it?) from a laptop to a tablet, making it easy to work, play and display all from one device.

Day Three:              DSC- QX10 Lens-Style Camera– This lens style camera snaps right onto your phone to make your images on-the-go even more awesome. And best of all, it connects via WIFI, so you can easily upload your pics straight to Instagram and Facebook and maximize those likes.

Day Four:               MDR – 10R series Noise Cancelling Headphones – Because flights for the holiday are almost always a noisy mess, we thought we’d get these premium headphones (with 40mm driver units) in your ears to help you relax/and block out the craziness while you fly.

Day Five:               A Bluetooth wireless speaker (BTX 300)  – Play your Mariah Carey Holiday playlist through this beast of a speaker (What? Just me?). With one-touch listening and battery life up to 8 hours, this speaker will help you rock out as you deck the halls.

Prizes
