The holidays are about giving. And we are honouring this tradition in grand fashion.
Welcome to the 2012 Techvibes Holiday Giveaway, powered by Best Buy. Our third-annual holiday giveaway, which will see us give away a total of seven prizes, is our most flexible yet: instead of awarding specific products as prizes, winners will receive Best Buy gift cards to buy absolutely anything they want. And for the less creative among us, we'll be inspiring potential winners with ideas through our Best Buy Holiday Gift Guide, which will suggest products within the price range of each gift card we hand out.
DAY FOUR IS WORTH...
Behind door number four is a $600 gift card from Best Buy. That's some serious spending money!
WHAT YOU SHOULD SPEND IT ON
May we recommend the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, an Android 4.0-powered tablet that features multi-screen functionality, so you can watch videos, build presentations and email at the same time or perform Google and YouTube searches while editing or viewing a document with Polaris Office—things Apple's iPad just can't handle.
Impressively, the 10.1-inch display reduces unwanted screen dimming by actually detecting your eyes. As long as they're on the device, the screen will stay bright. That way you can surf the web or enjoy your favourite ebook uninterrupted. There's also a handy S Pen, which gives you the freedom to jot down a note or sketch a drawing as easily as it takes to apply the pen to the screen.
HOW TO WIN IT
So, you want this gift card, eh? Well, guess what pal—so does everybody else.
For your shot at victory, you've got to enter our giveaway. Fortunately, we've made entering super simple this year. Just follow this one easy step:
1. Comment on this article, telling us who and what you'd spend your winnings on. An iPad Mini for yourself? An HD television for a friend? A home theatre system for your technology-loving dog, Berkley? (Okay, we know that one's secretly for you too.)
Totally simple, right? Oh, and we'd love it if you also followed Techvibes and Best Buy on Twitter, but it's not a requirement for the giveaway. (Though we know a few well-connected elves in the North Pole, so it may bump you up on Santa's Nice list.)
THE FINE PRINT
No purchase required. Contest closes December 9, 2012 at midnight Pacific Standard Time. There are a total of 7 prizes available to be won (one prize per giveaway article). Open to Canadian residents excluding residents of Quebec. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received before contest closes.

Come back tomorrow for another great prize to be won.
