Schwag Addict Contest: Win a Google Fridge 7th January, 2008

Golfer and Internet Marketer Dan Perry has an awesome ton piece of schwag he wants to give away. Sure, I want it (I’m not going to lie), but instead, we decided it would be in all fairness to start the first Schwag Addict contest.

The winner gets a box…

Google Fridge Box

Inside that box is a really awesome fridge:

Google Fridge

Google Fridge: Innards

Want to see more? Watch the whole video in its entirety and you’ll see how amazing this fridge is (and I still won’t lie. I want it!)

So, how can you win this?

Create a blog post or page on your website that links back to Dan Perry’s official post on the contest so that he gets a trackback and knows you’re in the running. Then, leave a comment on this post to let solidify your vote. What’s the entry? Explain what you’d do with a Google Fridge. The most creative answer (even if you don’t actually apply these creative skills) wins.

In case you missed that, there are 2 steps:

  1. Create a page that links to Dan’s contest on his blog explaining what you’d do with a Google Fridge.
  2. Write a comment here letting us know that you’ve entered in the contest.

We have 4 judges for the contest, so the more unique your answer is, the better your chances are to win a piece of Cooler Thinking in your car (yes, this baby is portable), office, or kitchen. The contest will run until Monday, January 14th. Until then, think hard, write your blog post, and maybe you’ll win a piece of serious awesome Google schwag from the very generous Dan.

Good luck, and may the most creative entry win!

Update January 15: Hey guys. The contest is now closed. We’ll be announcing winners next week. Thanks for your entries!

    I’ll be posting but I wanted to leave a comment first. I sat next to Dan at the SEO poker tournament and he pretty much humiliated and destroyed any and all confidence I had in my poker playing skills. Knocked me out of the tournament before I even got my second beer.

    So I’d put all those beers I didn’t get to drink in that fridge. And of course as a further bribe I’d do a lot of linking to my new four favorite peeps.

    Hey Mad Hat,

    It’s all in the cards. If I would’ve been sitting to the right of you instead of the left, you would’ve knocked me out. Plus, now it gives you something to look forward to next year; outlasting me! :)

    P.S. I did a guest post on my poker night experience at Purpose Inc’s site. Here’s the post:

  7. BartTheBear says...

    BartTheBear wants the fridge so he can have a place that advertises Google to keep our fish, a delicassy for us bears, cold and fresh!!! We will invite our Polar cousins in the north to come and visit us. The ice-bergs are melting and they can’t live there anymore.

  8. Nicole says...

    Cool thing :D
    Could have used it in the hot Kuwaiti summer ;)

    I doubt you would ship over here, so I just let other people try to get it, but let me say, the idea is great and the fridge looks awesome :)!

  26. I wish I had a Google fridge because... {Laughing Dog} says...

    Aside from being a Google fan, the fridge would be awesome for my dog. Being from Canada, we rarely need to actually use a fridge as it is always so cold up here anyway. But the fact it can also keep things warm is truly intriguing – as my beloved mutt hates it when his raw Buffalo bones freeze. If I placed them in your lovely GFridge it would keep them at an ideal temperature. Without having to defrost the bones, this becomes a very economical and environmentally friendly solution – and Laughing Dog Cafe is all about environmentally friendly solutions!

    I am a Google Fan in China. I have collected a lot of Google souvenirs and I have sent some to my Blog readers.

    Well, here in Brazil we are in summer now. The temperature is so high that I can’t sleep at night.
    I’m using a fan, but it doesn’t help because the air inside my bedroom is very hot…
    But, if I use this fridge, I will have how to keep my bedroom with an ideal temperature to sleep… I’m going to put the fridge with the door open in front of the fan and I will get a very good cold air…
    Well… It’s not impossible! This fridge is from google!!!

    Please Dan, help me to have a good sleep at night! :-)

    Thanks a lot
