So far, this has to be one of my favorite giveaways. Who wants yet another book about money when you could have a postmodern bean bag chair? Last week, I reviewed the Sumo Lounge Omni chair and Otto foot rest.
As the review explains, the chair is a lot nicer than I expected. Currently, I am keeping the Omni in the “bed” position for relaxing while blogging.
Sumo Lounge agreed to give away an Omni chair valued at $150 to a lucky Consumerism Commentary reader. It will be delivered by FedEx directly to the winner’s door. Not only that, but the winner can choose the color. I was sent the fiery red, and I like it, but the other colors, like tangerine, platinum, funky brown, and lime green, look great from the pictures.
Here are the instructions for the giveaway.
In order to enter the contest, you must comment on this post below, leaving your valid e-mail address. As I’ve mentioned, I will keep your e-mail address private, but I need a way to contact the winner. The comment should include something about furniture, such as an entertaining story about how you acquired furniture in your first apartment.
I really like this stuff, and this is a contest definitely worth your time. The winner will be chosen randomly, and the odds of winning depend on the number of commenters. I would hope that this attracts strong interest, as I’m quite impressed with what they’ve sent me.
The giveaway will be closed to new entries at 11:59 PM Eastern time on Tuesday, October 23. The winner will be notified by email and expected to respond within 48 hours. Subscribe to the Consumerism Commentary RSS feed to receive updates.
Update [10/17, 12:00 pm]: If you tried to place a comment on Consumerism Commentary in the last twelve hours, I did not receive your comment. You would have received an error message after submitting your message. The problem has been fixed, so please try again.
Update [10/24, 12:00 am]: The winner has been selected and notified. Thanks to everyone who visited; I hope new visitors are sticking around.
