You might remember we mentioned the Pentel movie ticket giveaway earlier this year. Well, it has started and anyone who buys Pentel pens and other products in the UK and Ireland has a chance to win free tickets.
The contest is a little convoluted, but did we mention the free part? OK, here's what you have to do:
Buy a Pentel product and find the sticker off the package. Scratch it, and underneath, you'll see a code. Go to the Pentel giveaway site and enter that code (you'll have to register the first time). Then, you get to play an online scratch-off game. The prize for winners is a pair of tickets that can be used at theater chains like Empire and Odeon.
According to Pentel, they're good for any movie, any day, any time.
The contest is running for the rest of 2010....for you pen addicts, that's lots of pens, pencils and markers, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to win.
And, if nothing goes your way in that contest, Pentel is running another one. Called the "Pentel Shootout Challenge," it's a little online soccer game. The top scorer gets an alarm clock that looks like a clapper board (you know, one of those things movie-makers hold up in front of the camera and snap when they say, "Action!"). But the real prize may be for the 10 runners-up: a Pentel goodie bag.
So there you go, two chances to get FREE stuff. And free is always good.
Speaking of free stuff, readers, make sure you stay tuned to Tiger Pens because we're going to announce our own giveaway sometime in the next few days. We've got a great prize for one of you.
But more on that later.
