People say that only 2 things are certain in life, but now we have a 3rd to add to this list: Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the most popular movie ever released. Everyone knows it is coming. Everyone is aware that it will be a movie event like no other. And even people who have never seen the early movies (yes there are still a few of these people, I’ve met a couple myself!) are feeling the buzz of excitement in the air.
Best Buy has been carrying a huge selection of these items, and we are going to give one lucky person a chance to experience many of these for themselves. We are calling this contest the “best in the galaxy” because we are confident that you will not find a prize package like this anywhere else. If you collect Star Wars memorabilia, this is the contest for you. If you have kids, this contest is for you. And I think that if there is intelligent life on another planet, they too will want to enter (but alas it is only open to residents of Canada).
This amazing Star Wars prize bundle includes all of these cool products:
This contest is really easy to enter. Simply post a comment below telling us which Star Wars character is your favourite. You can only do this once. However, there is a bonus entry method too: leave a separate comment below telling us which item that is being given away in this contest is your favourite.
That means you can enter a maximum of two times.
What you can win
We will randomly select one entry from all eligible comments entered here on the blog. That person will win the entire Star Wars prize package valued at over $3400!
This contest will run from December 2nd until December 15th.
We will draw the winner on December 16th and contact that winner via email (if an email address was entered on their blog profile) or by private message on the blog. Be sure to check your email or blog account for our message so you don’t miss out.
Remember you can enter only twice, once by telling us your favourite Star Wars character, and once by telling us your favourite item in the huge Star Wars prize bundle we are giving away in this contest.
Sharing is good! You will also want to share this contest with your family and friends to boost your odds of getting to see all of these items. You never know, if someone you know wins, then they might let you have a turn flying the Millennium Falcon, or playing with BB-8!
