Please, take this hardware from us! PCPer/HWC YouTube Contest Follow-up

Seriously, won't SOMEONE please take this hardware from us? We are trying desperately to give it away...

Last month PC Perspective and Hardware Canucks partnered together to offer up a March / St. Patrick's Day themed giveawawy via YouTube. The problem? Only one of 15 people I contacted about winning replied - the rest were silent or replied and did not live in the US or Canada (one of the requirements). So to fix this, we are restarting the contest for the 2nd and 3rd prize winners.

PC Perspective / Hardware Canucks YouTube Contest Follow-up

The rules are basically the same: Subscribe to both PC Perspective's and Hardware Canuck's YouTube channel, live in the US or Canada, enter by May 4th!

We'll draw the winners and notify everyone that we have done so once we have confirmation from the participants. Good luck!

So, if we entered the last contest, signed up for both YouTube channels, and watched both videos, are we entered already?

Or is there something else we must do to qualify to be entered this time?

Oh, and if I get contacted you will sure as hell get a reply :D

Awesome stuff as usual Brian and PC Per crew.

Wow are you kidding me, stupid people! I could've been one of the original chosen few!

April 27, 2015 | 03:38 PM - Posted by Bill In Alabama

I'm already subscribed to both channels. Do I need to unsubscribe and resubscribe to get those tow entries?

April 28, 2015 | 03:03 AM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

no, the site just can't check right away so it just leads you to it, just click continue after closing the youtube pop up

April 27, 2015 | 03:41 PM - Posted by Geo (not verified)

YES!!! Another shot at the giveaway :)

April 27, 2015 | 03:48 PM - Posted by DJ Lobster

Awesome giveaway. For those asking, you don't need to unsubscribe and resubscribe. When they choose a winner they say in the video they will check to make sure you are subscribed to both after being picked. If you aren't subscribed they'll move onto another person.

Another great giveaway!

Thanks, PCPer!

It's saying my Date of Birth is wrong

April 27, 2015 | 04:23 PM - Posted by Brett (not verified)

Pay attention, its DD/MM/YYYY not MM/DD/YYYY

April 28, 2015 | 01:00 AM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

That is weird and I have never ran into that format in my American life.

April 28, 2015 | 01:32 AM - Posted by Goofus Maximus (not verified)

I think it's a Canadian/European format for dates. They do things weird outside the US, like driving on the wrong side of the road...

April 27, 2015 | 04:05 PM - Posted by williamthehun

I'm all for this, I like helping people. My nickname is "people".

April 27, 2015 | 04:02 PM - Posted by Hugh Rohrbaugh (not verified)

I hope I win!

April 27, 2015 | 04:11 PM - Posted by Jarvis Garcia (not verified)

It won't accept my birth date on either form.

April 27, 2015 | 11:36 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

are you putting it as month/day/year or day/month/year? It needs to be day/month/year

May 4, 2015 | 10:20 PM - Posted by Nick McKenna (not verified)

Try DD/MM/YYYY. Canadians are weird like that.

April 27, 2015 | 04:15 PM - Posted by RedNekTek (not verified)

I'm amazed how many people blindly enter contests without taking the time to read the rules. I get contest invites on Facebook all the time from people like this.

April 27, 2015 | 08:20 PM - Posted by Patrick3D (not verified)

For anyone that has a problem with the Gleam form: you need to submit the form first for any one of the 4 items in the list. After it has been submitted for one of the items the other items simply get checked off as you complete them. You will see the +1 change to a checkmark as each item is completed but only after the form has been submitted.

April 27, 2015 | 08:33 PM - Posted by Alfredo Hernandez (not verified)

Awesome! Thanks for the second opportunity to win!

April 27, 2015 | 10:52 PM - Posted by Goofus Maximus (not verified)

Great. So I have to log in via one of the services, none of which I'm on, or want to be on. Meh. What in the world is Youtube Messaging? I never even heard of that before...

April 27, 2015 | 10:57 PM - Posted by Goofus Maximus (not verified)

Okay... so those login methods are not required? That was confusing! I'm now entered 4 times. I think. At least Gleam says so.

I am now follow both channels. Lots of info, love it! I especially loved your recent SSD roundup discussion. I now have a Samsung SM951 on order.

April 27, 2015 | 11:18 PM - Posted by omegadoom13

Wow! I'm surprised so few people replied to your email or didn't bother to read the rules. Thanks for the chance again to win some pretty awesome computer hardware! Well, good luck everyone!

April 28, 2015 | 02:26 AM - Posted by Chaitanya Shukla

I don't live in US but I can provide a valid US shipping address(friend or relative), in this case am I eligible to enter? even that 2nd and 3rd place hardware prizes are too good to pass up.

April 28, 2015 | 02:36 AM - Posted by Kevin (not verified)

So, with this contest, if we don't have one of the four social media accounts to log in on the gleam form, we cannot enter, even if we entered the first contest ok (which didn't require membership on a social media website).


April 28, 2015 | 02:51 AM - Posted by Kevin (not verified)

NM I figured it out and entered. Those social media accounts are not necessary, which is not immediately apparent.

Oh well, my :( is now :)

There's some problem in my Firefox browser and says something about cookies disabled but it's not. So I used IE to get it done.

Don't mind entering, but sites continuing to want a persons' date of birth is tough to sell. With all the problems of data mining and personal data theft, makes you want to not enter any of these contests. I understand why they do, because you will get the youngsters out there trying to get the items on the contest, yet...

Anyway, glad to see that they are actually trying to follow up with this contest. Hope I get luckier this time than last! But, good luck to everyone.

This would go along way to upgrading my mATX build. Enjoy the content from both channels.

Hope I get that email

May 17, 2015 | 08:01 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Did I win?

I haven't heard announcements for this contest or the other one with Asus. It would be nice to hear a generic who won, like "Mike D. from Walla Walla, WA". Otherwise, you wonder if it's another mis-fire like the first time around.

Mike D.
