Crave giveaway of the day: $500 Newegg.com gift card

From now until Christmas, we'll be giving away one prize a day on Crave (except for weekends and holidays). Today's prize: a $500 gift card from Newegg.com.

Win a $500 shopping spree at Newegg.com!

In my humble opinion, this is one of the best giveaways we've ever done. Why? Well, because thanks to some intrepid work by our reps at Shopper.com, Newegg.com is generously offering up a $500 gift card, which means you get to pick your prize.

In case you don't know what Newegg.com is, it made its name selling computer gear and accessories at really low prices. But now it sells not only computer stuff but tons of electronics, so you're looking at a whole lotta selection.

As for Shopper.com, it powers CNET's price-comparison engine and it's a great site for finding the best prices on products. (See all of Shopper's deals, coupon codes, and rebates).

Normally, a Newegg.com $500 gift card would cost you $500 (duh), but you have the chance to get it gratis.

So, how do you try to win the Newegg.com gift card? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.

  • Register as a CNET user. Go to the top of this page and hit the "Join CNET" link to start the registration process. If you're already registered, there's no need to register again.
  • Leave a comment below. You can leave whatever comment you want. If it's funny or insightful it won't help you win, but we're trying to have fun here, so anything entertaining is appreciated.
  • Leave only one comment. You may enter this specific giveaway only once. If you enter more than one comment, you will be automatically disqualified.
  • The winner will be chosen randomly. The winner will receive (1) $500 newegg.com gift card. Retail value is $500.
  • If you are chosen, you will be notified via e-mail. Winners must respond within three days of the end of the contest. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
  • Entries can be submitted until Thursday, December 3, at 7 a.m. EST.
And here's the disclaimer that our legal department said we had to include (sorry for the caps, but rules are rules):
