Giveaway: $300 in Google Play Gift Cards Up for Grabs!

Apologies for us not hosting a Google Play gift card giveaway in a while, but with smartphone release schedules getting moved around this year, we have been a bit busy. To make up for it, we’re going pretty big this time around with $300 in gift cards for 18 different winners. This is probably our biggest gift card giveaway to date. Well, we have given away $300 before, but not to 18 different people.

This time, we are handing out 10 $10 gift cards, along with another 8 $25 gift cards. Your chances of winning are better than they have ever been.

The contest runs from right now until tomorrow morning. When it finishes, we’ll email winners and then send over redemption codes. Within minutes of being chosen, you can begin enjoying free cash.

As always, we went with Rafflecopter to manage the contest. There are a number of ways to enter, so choose which way you find easiest. The more you enter, though, the more chances you have to win.

Giveaway: Win 1 of 3 Lifetime Plex Passes From DL and Plex

We have partnered with Plex, the service that allows you to stream your video, music, and photo library across the web via a dedicated media server onto Android devices, to give away 3 Lifetime Plex Passes. These passes are valued at $149, granting you a lifetime membership to Plex and use of its servers.

Personally, as a big fan of Android TV and the Plex app on NVIDIA’s SHIELD, storing a few of my movies on Plex makes watching whatever I want easy. And since Plex is available on all of my Android devices, tablets included, it doesn’t matter where I am to enjoy my content. Also, if you follow Plex news, you should know that they have been rolling out new features left and right.

Want to win a Plex Pass? Let’s do it.  (more…)

Giveaway: Win 1 of 2 Nexus 6 32GB, You Pick the Color (Update: Winners Chosen)

With Google putting the Nexus 6 on sale through the Google Store, let’s celebrate by giving away two Nexus 6 32GB phones! If you win, you choose the color.

The Nexus 6 is still a great option for those who love unlocked, powerful devices. If you own a Nexus 6, you can even flash the latest Android M developer preview build, allowing you to experience the latest and greatest Android features before anyone else.

Let’s do this.  (more…)

Giveaway: Win 1 of 4 IKEA Wireless Chargers from Droid Life!

Just before Google I/O, we told you that IKEA had begun selling their series of wireless charging pads, lamps, and other accessories in the US. We also told you that we may or may not have a few to giveaway, which as you can tell from this post, is about to happen.

After a quick trip out to the Portland IKEA, we came back with three extra single-spot charging plates (Nordmarke), along with a bigger three-spot charging plate. All will work just fine with your wireless charging-capable device, like a Galaxy S6, Nexus 6, or Nexus 5. They should look quite snazzy in your home as well, since IKEA built these to blend in with furniture, not look like a piece of cheap technology, which I would argue is the approach most wireless charger makers take.  (more…)

Giveaway: Win a Ticket to Automatic’s Google I/O Party!

Automatic, a company that wants you to become one with your car through an adapter and smartphone app, is hosting a party at next week’s Google I/O and they asked if we could help spread the word by handing out tickets (10 of them!) to our readers, tickets that will also land you their car adapters. Awesome, right? Company doing innovative things with cars and phones wants you to party with them for free in San Francisco and receive free goods – how can you beat that?

The party is sort of like a pre-party for Google I/O in that it goes down the night before Google takes the stage. So on May 27, you can have a little fun before all of the serious stuff takes place and you need to think about code and animations and cloud thingies and compatibility and fragmentation (hah!). There will be “unlimited” drinks (read: open bar), entertainment (like Mario Kart battles), and a bunch of giveaways. Oh, we’ll be there too! (more…)

Giveaway: Win 1 of 5 Huawei TalkBand B2 Devices Before Anyone can Buy It

As Huawei continues its big push this year into the US, they want you to realize that they are about more than just smartphones. While their smartphones are certainly grabbing our attention (Huawei P8 for example), as are the rumors of them possibly creating a Nexus phone, their line-up of accessories shouldn’t be ignored either. And I’m not just talking about the Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch that stole headlines at MWC. Huawei also has a smart wearable/Bluetooth earpiece called the TalkBand B2 that is worth a look.

Before we get into why it’s worth a look, we should probably mention that we are giving five (5) of them away. Oh, it’s also not available yet for purchase, so should you win one, you will be one of the first in the world. Cool, right?  (more…)
