I mentioned in an earlier sneak-peak post that I would be giving away some Kupilka 21 cups and here is the first of the giveaways.
Toward the end of last year I played a very small role in connecting Kupilka with some backpacking distribution options within the United States in an effort to help them expand. I love their product and was happy to help in some small way. I certainly didn't expect anything in return for what I had done, after all it was nothing more than a few emails. However, Michael Negele (@kupilka) and the wonderful folks at Kupilka wanted to say thank you by sending me some sample cups. These are the cups that I am now very happy to give away to my readers.
I am giving away one brand new, boxed Kupilka 21 cup to the winner of this drawing. I will have future giveaways for the remaining cups, so there will be more than one chance to win!
Just like the recent Bud-Light stove giveaway, I'd like to keep this as simple as possible. So there are no lengthy gear lists to provide or complicated eligibility requirements. This will be a completely random drawing using Random.org, except that you now have the ability to earn multiple ‘entries’. Here are the basic rules for the giveaway:
- One Entry: Submit a comment below on this blog post - that's it! No gear lists to provide, or reasons why you deserve to win. Only comments on this post count (in other words, comments that you left on my blog a few years back don’t count)
- Two Entries: There are three different opportunities to double up on entries. In addition to posting a comment below, just can put a link on your blog (if you have one) to this giveaway post. Or the second option is adding your Twitter account as a follower of Brian's Backpacking Blog and re-tweeting the original contest giveaway announcement. By simply spreading the word, you get an extra entry. (Note: If you’re already a follower of my tweets, simply re-tweet and you'll get credit). The final/third option for non-Twitter/Blog folks is to Share the giveaway post on Facebook instead. Everyone has a Facebook account, right? There's even a link below this post to let you share it on Facebook.
- Three Entries: This is easy – just do all three of the above! Twitter (or Facebook), Blog/site, and Comment. The maximum I'll allow is three entries per person :-)
That's it. You have to let me know how many entries you have in the comments below as there is no real way that I know of to track things like Facebook 'shares', this is an honor system. The giveaway will be open until midnight on February 28th - which also happens to be my birthday. Good luck to everyone who enters!
