Online video game renter GameFly is marking its fifth anniversary with a sweepstakes that will net the winner $25,000 worth of gaming gear. Running through the end of October, the celebration includes a daily Nintendo DS Lite system giveaway and other prizes.
The “Ultimate $25,000 Gaming Setup” winner will be chosen in a random drawing of all new subscribers and non-member entrants in early November. Members, new subscribers and non-members can enter once each day during the promotion. The top prize winner will receive some combination of gaming electronics, furniture and consoles worth $25,000.
New subscribers who register in October during any of six four-hour periods will be eligible to win a free month of service given away in that time slot. Non-members can enter online and complete an entry form that could win them a gift certificate for $22.95, the equivalent of one month’s free service, also chosen during each of the registration periods. GameFly is No. 260 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.
“We are thrilled to celebrate our five-year anniversary. The growth and evolution of GameFly is only possible because so many gamers find our game rental service attractive,” says Sean Spector, co-founder and senior vice president, business development and content. “The ‘Ultimate $25,000 Gaming Setup’ sweepstakes is a great way to celebrate our achievements and thank the GameFly community by giving them a chance to win some very cool prizes.”
