New Year, New Gear: Mini 10 Contest for Customers in the UK and Ireland

According to a survey commissioned by eBay last year, £700 million was wasted on unwanted gifts during the holiday season, majority of which were later resold online. Why not reuse that money and treat yourself to something that you’ll love throughout 2010 and beyond, like a Dell Mini 10?

Small and stylish, the Dell Mini 10 is something you will always find useful (unlike aunt Maude’s knitted jumpers). And for 5 lucky people, we have a real treat in store this dark and damp January – we’re giving away one Inspiron Mini 10 every day for five days! Each weekday from Wednesday, January 13 – Tuesday, January 19, 2010, one Dell Mini 10 will be given away to randomly selected individuals who tweet a specified message, as well as correctly answer the question of the day.

You’ll recall that we had a similar contest last summer, and this time around, this contest is exclusively for our friends in the UK and Republic of Ireland to give them a chance at winning a Mini 10.

Here’s what you need to do to enter:

  1. Follow @DellUK on Twitter.
  2. Tweet the phrase: “I just followed @DellUK for a chance to win one of 5 Dell Mini 10 netbooks! More info at: #DellMini10” (You only need to do this once – not every day please)
  3. Answer the daily question by sending a tweet using the following phrase: “Hey @DellUK the answer is [answer].  Find more answers here #DellMini10” (We will also happily accept direct messages)
