Buzznet's Valentine Zune Contest may be over, but The Zune A Day Giveaway is only beginning to heat up. Microsoft has figured out how to promote both the Zune and Windows Live Hotmail for mobile in a single contest. The software giant is giving away a Zune 8 ($200 value) every day between 12:01 a.m. (PT) on February 9, 2008 and 11:59 p.m. (PT) on March 31, 2008. It seems that the company has extra stock to get rid of, or maybe Microsoft always feels particularly generous when it comes to the Zune.
Here are the step-by-step instructions for entering the contest, straight from the official rules so that there are no misunderstandings:
- Access Windows Live Hotmail from your mobile device by following one of the 3 methods below.
- Open your mobile browser and enter "http://mobile.msn.com".
- To receive an SMS text message with a link to the Mobile Site, enter your mobile number at the Sweepstakes Website. Your mobile phone provider's standard data charges will apply
- Locate Hotmail on your mobile device.
- Sign in to the Windows Live Hotmail service using your existing Passport or Windows Live ID.
- Send an e-mail from your Windows Live Hotmail address to WINAZUNE@live.com with "Go Zune" in the subject line.
- To enter the sweepstakes without using a mobile device, you may also enter by sending an e-mail from a PC to WINAZUNE@live.com from a Windows Live Hotmail account with "Go Zune" in the subject line.
