I’m giving away an Amazon gift card! [CLOSED]

I turned 30 on Sunday and as a result, I’m feeling old generous! Turning 30 is kind of a milestone (and since I missed my site’s 6 month anniversary because I wasn’t paying attention), I wanted to share the love with all of you and hopefully gain a few new faces by giving away $30 for turning 30. The contest will be starting immediately and running until October 15th, so there’s plenty of time for you to enter.

[UPDATE]

Congrats to the winner, Mr Rumsey who hedged out a win by one…single…point!

A HUGE thank you to everyone that participated, I love you all

Here are the details:

  • Whoever has the most points (explained below) by October 15th will be notified that they are the luckiest person on the planet
  • The prize will be a $30 Amazon.com gift card* for your home country – if your country does not have an Amazon site, let me know an alternative that suits you and hopefully we can work something out but I can’t guarantee anything

Here is how to get points:

  • Refer a new follower on Twitter (3 points) – if a new follower sends me a tweet  with #AndyWatchesMovies and says that they were sent by “@YourNameHere”, you get the points for the referral
  • Follow me on Twitter  (2 points) – if you are already following me, consider these free points… just send me a tweet with #AndyWatchesMovies
  • Tweet any of my posts to Twitter (1 point) – use the button below any post to share it (my posts need to occur during the contest time period, digging through my old tweets and retweeting will not count)
  • Refer a new “Liker” on Facebook (3 points) – if a new “liker” sends me a DM (direct message) on Facebook that they were sent by you, you get the points for the referral
  • Like my page on Facebook (2 points) – if you already like me, consider these free points… just “Like” this post on Facebook.
  • Share any of my posts to Facebook (1 point) – use the button below any post to share it (my posts need to occur during the contest time period, digging through my old posts will not count)

If you were wondering where my Twitter and Facebook links are, you can find them on the side of the page or below:

Good luck!

*$30USD will be converted to the home currency, so it may be less than $30 if you are outside the US

  1. How many points does letting you post a Desert Island Films list get me? Surely you should just send me the voucher now. $30 is about £500 British Pounds, give or take 🙂

    Nice idea this dude.

  2. Well, congratulations on getting that one step closer to you dotage! Seriously, happy belated birthday and may each year see you grow wiser and older…a bit of a given that last one. 😀

  3. Happy Birthday Andy and great idea about the gift card. Also being from Britain, I can confirm that Tyson is 100% accurate in his conversion rate and that you really have no need to check up on it.

  4. I’d like to tell you to have a good thirtieth. Unfortunately, due to your indiscriminate discrimination of people who are against the twits on Twitter and Facebook, who therefore cannot enter your contest, I will now be organizing a disorganized self-boycott of your site.

  5. So, you’re basically getting everyone to help inflate your twitter and facebook follower/likes count and reach, and the lamb that does the best job gets a gift card. Yuck!

    What happened to writing great content that entices people to share?

  6. Happy 30th birthday, man! I hope you had a really great day. That’s awesome that you’re giving away an Amazon gift card. I usually do my online shopping there or on eBay, so hopefully I can get my hands on it.

    How does it feel being 30?

    • Thanks! Good luck!

      It doesn’t feel too different but it has finally set in that I’m in my 30s…For better or worse, I suppose.
