This time of year, we’re all being inundated with emails from companies trying to get us to buy stuff from them. No one likes it, including me. But the reality is that this is the time of year when many businesses make most of the money they need to function the rest of the year… including me.
So to reconcile these two factors, instead of focusing on alerting readers to holiday deals this year, I thought I would instead honor the seasonal theme by posting a new tech tip a day for the next 12 days and just add related shopping information where it’s relevant.
Find links to the twelve tips later in this post. >>
And to add a little more fun to the series, I thought I’d throw a couple of giveaways into the mix… Woo-hoo!
Each of the Twelve Days of Tech Tips posts will have a brief poll at the bottom. Everyone who responds to it that day will be entered for a chance to win a $10 Amazon e-gift card. You can only win one gift card throughout the 12 Days, but there’s still a great reason to read ALL the tips…
When the series ends on December 15th, there will be a random drawing of everyone who has entered throughout the twelve days and the winner will receive an Amazon Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot Bundle!
For this giveaway, you’ll receive one entry for every poll you’ve submitted, so if you submit all twelve of them, you’ll have twelve chances to win.
