If you saw this article about Daily Grommet last week, or if you're already a fan, you know we bring you fresh finds and unique gift ideas every day. Most of the time, you never know what you're going to get until we launch a new product at noon. We have a lot of great Grommets up our sleeves, but sometimes (like now), we get one that's just way too hot to keep under wraps.
On July 27, we're featuring Google Voice. And we have access to 100 Google Voice beta accounts we want to share with you, our Daily Grommet community.
Haven't heard about Google Voice yet? It's "one phone number for life" that consolidates your home, work and mobile phone number into one central phone number that you get to pick. Google Voice gives you one number for all your phones, voicemail as easy as email, free US long distance, low rates on international calls, and many calling features, including the ability to record your own phone conversations. It's super-hot.
We'll be featuring Google Voice as our Grommet of the day starting at noon EST on July 27 on the Daily Grommet homepage, and we'll tell you more about it then. But because it's still so new, Google Voice has a limited number of beta accounts that are in hot demand -- some estimates place the wait list at tens of thousands.
So here's how you can enter to win access to your own Google Voice account:
- Retweet any @DailyGrommet tweet that mentions the Google Voice beta account giveaway between now and Noon EST July 28.
- Between Noon July 27 and Noon July 28, when we air our feature of the story behind Google Voice, you can leave a comment about Google Voice on our homepage's "Talk about this Grommet" board. Don't leave a comment before or after those timeframes (comments are limited to one entry per email address).
- We'll select 100 winners at random to receive a Google Voice account invite. If you're a winner, we'll contact you between July 28 and July 31 and ask you to send us your gmail address so that Google can reach you to send you an invite (NOTE: We won't contact you at that email address, or add it to our email list). Google tells us they'll contact you within a week.
General contest rules: To enter, you must be a U. S. resident, and at least 18 years of age. No purchase necessary. All entries are due by Noon EST July 28. By entering this contest, you give Daily Grommet permission to contact you regarding your submission. You are not eligible to win if you have received a prize or giveaway from Daily Grommet in the last six months. Winner will be contacted by email or Twitter. If the winner does not respond within 7 days, a new winner will be selected. Void where prohibited.
