Editor's note: This week's giveaway has a Snapchat component. Please read the below rules carefully. We've turned off comments on this post to avoid confusion as to how to enter the contest.
Congratulations to Jonathan M. of Kansas City, Missouri, for winning a Timbuk2 laptop backpack last week. Fans of "Shark Tank," this one's for you.
My fellow CNET editor Sharon Profis and I put some of the top products born on the TV show "Shark Tank" to the test -- with some awesome results. And now you can get your hands on this bundle of wacky awesomeness.
The haul includes the Squatty Potty, a footrest for the bathroom that's supposed to improve your bowel health. Sound wacky? Yeah we thought so too, but it has rave reviews. There's also a mini Lumio+, a beautiful light masquerading as a book. It looks like a small hardcover novel, but opens up to reveal a light that lasts for eight hours. It can even charge your iPhone or iPad.
Also included is the Coco Jack, the ultimate tool for opening coconuts. It comes with a hammer and the Coco Jack itself, which creates a perfect, round hole in a coconut so you can get out the water. Also included is a scraper to extract the coconut flesh. Finally, you'll get some NerdWax, which helps keep your glasses or sunglasses from slipping and sliding down your nose.
Here's what you'll need to do to win this prize pack worth approximately $200. Please read our rules carefully, as they involve Snapchat this week.
- Register to be a member of Snapchat. If not already a registered user, register with the Snapchat service and add CNET as a friend by swiping down from the Camera screen, selecting "Add Friend" and adding CNET with the username "cnetsnaps"
- Send a message as follows. Tap the chat icon (upper left-hand corner) in the feed screen and text "I'm in!" or just search through the chat page for "cnetsnaps" and text "I'm in!" and you will receive an entry into the Sweepstakes. If you would like to enter by mail, see rules for details.
- Send only one entry regardless of entry method. If you enter more than once, you will be automatically disqualified.
- The winner will be chosen randomly. The winner will receive one (1) bag of swag with an approximate retail value of $200.
- If you are chosen, you will be notified via direct message on your Snapchat account. The winner must respond within three days of the direct message being sent. If you do not respond within that period, an alternate winner will be chosen.
