MiiR Stainless Steel Bottle Contest Winner

31 Jan
Sarah's Doodles


Last week we held our second product giveaway of 2013—a contest to give away a MiiR Stainless Steel Water Bottle to some lucky reader. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 500 and 750 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

The winning number was 562 and a reader named Sarah guessed the exact number (the first time that’s happened). I’ve only been following Sarah’s blog (Sarah’s Doodles) for about two months—I found it in the WordPress Reader under the “running” topic. Sarah describes herself as “a 24-year-old yo’ pro’ living in Cincinnati with a love for running, 90′s pop music, peanut butter and everything in between.” Sarah does have more than a little sarcasm on her blog (I really admire that in people).

Winning Number

For your information, we had around 70 readers enter the contest. We used a random number generator to select a number between 500 and 750 and that is how 562 was selected as the winning number. We have several other product giveaways already planned—and unless we can think of a better way to hold a contest we will probably follow the same format we used this time (translation: your suggestions for a better way to hold a product giveaway would be greatly appreciated).

      Mike, I was really hoping for more! With only 70 or 80 people entering a contest it makes the odds pretty good for someone. By the way, I have another contest next week — it will probably only be of interest to mountain bikers due to the nature of the product involved.

    Cyclist, thank you — both for the bottle and the shout-out! I’m quite excited about this water bottle and you can rest assured that there’s NO sarcasm there. =] Looking forward to using it!

      It was sent out this morning via First Class Mail — they said you should have it on Saturday. Best wishes!
