This week we turn three years old! To celebrate, and as a thank you for sticking with us for the last three years, we’ve got a load of prizes to give away...
What a difference a few years makes, and how quickly time flies. Can you believe it was only 36 months ago that we started on our journey to bring you everything interesting, exciting and fresh from inside the world of Vodafone UK? We’ve come a long way since then, bringing you exclusive news, interviews and stories about our network, products and services, and mobile life in general.
And we want to thank you for being there to read it, by giving you the chance to win an absolute mountain of free stuff.
Come and celebrate with us…
When we say mountain, we’re not kidding – our friends and partners across the globe have teamed up to contribute an enormous stack of prizes to celebrate our big month. Throw your name into the ring and you might win a prize bundle made up of handsets like the HTC One M9, One M8 and One M8 Mini; the LG G Flex 2; the Microsoft Lumia 640; the Sony Xperia E, the Xperia M Aqua and the Sony Xperia Z2; the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Tab S 10; and one of five pairs of Spotify TMA-1 Studio headphones.
There’s also a bevy of Gramophon wireless speakers and Google Chromecasts – the latter of which is the ideal streaming solution for anyone who signed up for a NOW TV Entertainment subscription through our Red 4G plans! If you win, you’ll walk away with a selection of three of these fantastic gadgets.
To enter, we’ve got a little treasure hunt for you. We’re going to take you on a trip down memory lane – revisiting some of our favourite moments from the last three years. All you need to do is look out for the prizedraw links in the mystery tour of posts and follow them to the end.
Then comment on the final page you come to with “x marks the spot” and that could be your ticket to one of our birthday prize bundles.
