Twelve Days of Tech Tips

So I’m trying something here… 🙂

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!

Daily Draw

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…

Series Giveaway

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.

Learn more about the Amazon Fire TV streaming media player and Echo Dot smart speaker in these T4L posts. >>

The Not-So-Fine Print

  • The deadline to enter the daily draws is 11:59pm Eastern Time of the day the poll is posted. The deadline to enter the series giveaway is 11:59pm Eastern Time, Friday, December 15, 2017.
