$1,000 HP Contest

#HPAwakens Giveaway

Normally I’d wait until this week’s TYLT series to post this free HP $1,000 contest, but it’s a flash contest that starts today and ends tomorrow, Monday, November 2nd at 11:59 PM ET! One lucky winner will receive a Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook, valued at $700, while ten additional winners will get a free $100 HP gift card.

This contest is in celebration of HP, Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprises separating into two new companies. Wait, doesn’t HP stand for Hewlett Packard? Does that mean Hey, It’s Free! and HIF Inc. could be two separate entities and, if I could have a followup question, does that mean I can now steal double the amount of supplies from my home office? My boss is such an idiot, he never realizes when I’m taking his own pens!

Good luck winning this HP contest though, fingers crossed The Force helps out a Hiffer today!
