Congrats to Ramzi E. of Davis, Calif., for scoring a free 42-inch LG PA4500 plasma TV in last week's giveaway. This week's prize is of the pick-your-own variety.
We're giving away a $250 gift certificate from online retailer Rakuten.com Shopping. The site, formerly Buy.com, sells millions upon millions of products -- from clothes, shoes, jewelry, and toys to televisions, laptops, printers, hard drives, routers, and video games. The winner's free to buy anything, but let's not kid ourselves: we know any CNET reader will probably head straight to the Electronics tab.
So what do you have to do to win this $250 shipping spree from Rakuten.com Shopping? There are a few rules, so please put down that growing wish list for a moment and read carefully.
- Register as a CNET user. Go to the top of this page and hit the "Join CNET" link to start the registration process. If you're already registered, there's no need to register again.
- Leave a comment below. You can leave whatever comment you want. If it's funny or insightful, it won't help you win, but we're trying to have fun here, so anything entertaining is appreciated.
- Leave only one comment. You may enter for this specific giveaway only once. If you enter more than one comment, you will be automatically disqualified.
- The winner will be chosen randomly. The winner will receive one (1) gift certificate from Rakuten.com Shopping, with a retail value of $250.
- If you are chosen, you will be notified via e-mail. The winner must respond within three days of the end of the sweepstakes. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
- Entries can be submitted until Monday, August 26, 12 p.m. ET.
And here's the disclaimer that our legal department said we had to include (sorry for the caps, but rules are rules):
