We’re Spreading Holiday Magic

Finding it a little more difficult to find the holiday magic this year? Still need something extra special for under the tree? HP and Microsoft have teamed up with 50 websites this holiday season to give away a total of $300,000 in prizes, in The HP Magic Giveaway. If you’ve done the math correctly, you already know that means we have a $6,000 prize package to award to one lucky winner. While the details of our contest won’t be revealed until later (subscribe to our feed), now we’ll share what’s contained in the prize package, and all 50 sites where you will have an opportunity to win!

If you’re new to this site, we share magical moments every day, by providing free tech help. Our magical moments come from helping someone solve a technology problem. It could be as simple as removing the Language Bar, or as complex as removing the latest rootkit that your antivirus missed. If you have some magic to share, or just want to learn more, please visit our forums.

The Holiday Magic Prize Package:

Each site is free to set their own contest rules, so be sure to check each site, review their contest, and enter to win!

  • I'll be checking back often. If your giveaway is anything like the dragon last year...I'll have so much fun (although I didn't win anyone of the thirty packages) 🙂

    I'm really crossing my fingers; third times a charm...I tried for the 30 days of the dragon (every site) and didn't win, I tried for the freshman 15 (every site) and didn't win, so here I am!!! I will be doing everything possible and time serves me right...the third time will be a charm (there's magic in the air, I feel it)

    HP has been advertising this contest everywhere. My niece told me she saw a banner in the subway the other day.

    I really want to win a new laptop for my son. This was the first Thanksgiving in years that our immediate family has been able to celebrate together (all 3 adult children). Needless to say I was ecstatic of the gathering. Anticipated the celebration for weeks! I shopped, cleaned, prepared their rooms, and cooked with excitement. Our dinner went great, and then the poker playing started and the “eggnog” kicked in. Arguing started over a stupid poker game and escalated into a physical fight (not mentioning names to protect their identities). The fight resulted in me crying, dumping the dog & cats bowl of water on their heads (trying to split up the fight), ripped shirts, bad feelings between family members, and my son’s brand new laptop smashed (that he recently purchased with his stimulus check). With the bad economy, we can't purchase another one.
