Sony Reader $10,000 Getaway Giveaway!

We don’t do giveaways often on Ciao Bambino so when we do, I like them to be juicy! This qualifies …

Sony Electronics asked us to partner with them in their $10,000 Getaway Giveaway. The prize? You guessed it, $10,000 to spend on a vacation, plus a Reader Pocket Edition™ for you and one for a friend, and a $100 Reader™ Store Gift Card so you can stock up on the latest bestsellers. If my summer vacation ideas brainstorm inspired you to dream about a fabulous vacation, now’s your chance to have someone else pay for it! (The best kind of vacation)

How to Enter

The entry period runs from April 5-19, 2011. Entering takes just a wee bit of work — but it’s your chance to get creative and this prize is worth it!

Imagine you’re on your dream vacation and you’re writing a postcard from that special destination. In your postcard, tell us where you are and what you brought along with you to read. Then have some fun telling us what you’re up to on vacation.

Note, after an entry has been submitted it may take a few hours for it to appear as it needs to be validated against the Official Rules. Once approved, entrants will receive an email notifying them that their submission has been approved.

Winner Selection

Winners will be selected by voting on the Reader Getaway Giveaway website.  You are allowed to vote for favorite entries one time per day over the course of the voting period. The voting period runs from April 20-26, 2011. The person who submitted the postcard that receives the most public votes at the end of the contest will be rewarded with the grand prize: $10,000 travel stipend, 2 Reader ™ Pocket Editions and $100 in Reader ™ Store gift cards.

$10,000 is a very nice vacation budget!  There’s some additional incentive to enter the contest … One eligible participant who enters the contest through Ciao Bambino will be given a SONY Reader Pocket Edition™ and $25 gift card to SONY Reader Store. This winner will be chosen by a sweepstakes-style giveaway using
