For this week's giveaway, we're moving away from hardware and into the world of apps courtesy of a site called Appitalism, which is giving away a $200 gift card to one lucky Crave reader.
Appitalism describes itself as the first site to combine a social community with an online store to help consumers quickly and easily discover, discuss, and download the best digital content for all devices. Yes, you can download stuff right from the site. And that gift card will get you $200 worth of credit at Appitalism, which you can spend on anything available on the site, including apps, music, games, and e-books.
Normally, an $200 Appitalism gift card would cost you $200, but we're giving it away gratis. So, how do you try to win it? 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 one (1) $200 Appitalism.com gift card with a retail value of $200.
- If you are chosen, you will be notified via e-mail. The winner 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 Monday, February 28, at 12 p.m. EST.
