Giveaway: HP DV2 Notebook Campaign meets NBA Sweepstakes

NBA_Barnstar **Comments are closed because contest is over - When contest winners are announced - I will announce the gift certificate and contest winners.

**Update 6/14/09- NBA is still working on details.. winners will be announced soon..

As a mom I appreciate opportunities to engage my kids in playing sports and to see professional sports games with my kids as a bonding experience.  So when Techmamas was contacted to participate in the HP/Microsoft/NBA contest - I knew exactly what I wanted to do (read on to find out..). 


The HP/Microsoft website has an amazing sweepstakes going on until May 31  related to a HP DV2 Notebook campaign. Nm325ua_300

Here are the prizes for that contest:

  • Grand Prize: See Kevin Garnett and the Celtics play a home game in Boston, and an away game in a West Coast city! Includes VIP tickets, airfare, hotel and great HP gear. Grand Prize winner will be announced during NBA Draft 2009.
  • Five other lucky winners will receive a Kevin Garnett autographed basketball.

CLICK ONTO THIS LINK to enter the enter the sweepstakes. But after you do, there is a second opportunity that is being offered as EXCLUSIVE incentive.


TechMamas.com readers have been selected, along with the readers from approximately two dozen other sites for an exclusive incentive for entering the sweepstakes. The contestants are "pooled" between all the blogs to find a winner.

Second exclusive contest details:

  • 10 regulation basketballs, each signed by an active player of the winner’s choosing  
  • 2 trips to the 2010 NBA All-Star Game in Dallas:  includes travel, accommodations and tickets for two – one winner and one site owner (in other words, 2 bloggers will each accompany one of their readers to the game)

TECHMAMA TWIST: Instead of me accompanying the winner to the All-Star game if a reader from my blog is chosen - THEY CAN BRING THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER!  Yes - I will give my blogger ticket away to the winner's son/daughter to make it a parent/child experience never to forget!!!


  • A legal resident of the 50 United States and District of Columbia and 18 years of age or older.
  • A Parent - and promise to take your son/daughter with you in place of my ticket. Sorry - no buddies allowed - this is a parent/child bonding experience.
  • ONLY ONE entry per parent/Twitter ID.
  • HP, Microsoft and NBA in conjunction with one another are the prize providers
  • The prize is not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded. Approximate value of prizes may vary.

Contest is open from now to May 31st.

My 11 yr. old son has loved basketball since he could walk. He has taught my husband, me and his older sisters the game. This would be a dream come true and a great birthday present for him.
