Win a Peek Mobile Email Device

****Contest Closed - scroll to bottom of post to see who the winner is!****

So is your Christmas shopping done yet? (I haven't even begun, which is not unusual for me) If you're anything like me (read: procrastinator), you definitely read on to find out how you can win something for your own Christmas stocking this year!


While the majority of techy-type gadgets get more complicated with time, (think Blackberrys), the Peek mobile email device is one of the simplest I've ever used. I love mine and never leave home without it now.






You can add multiple email address to it (think: personal, blog, etc...) and it will check them all, keeping you in touch without ever having to be near a computer. There is a $20 monthly fee, but there are no contracts to sign and no hassles - if you like it, use it. Besides, have you checked the prices of a phone contract with internet or email capabilities? Hello? This is much more affordable for the average person who doesn't need constant internet access or even (gasp! have a cell phone), but would love to keep in touch via email. The goal is to give you "just unlimited email—no contracts, no hidden fees, no complications."


Now some of you are thinking, "Why in the world would I ever need that, since I never check my email anyway?" Believe me, if you don't need it, you probably know someone who does - it would make a great gift - even Oprah thinks so.


And the folks at Peek are so kind, they want to give one away right here! You have your choice between charcoal grey, cherry red, or aqua blue. Please specify the your color choice in your comment and I'll choose a winner Monday morning. *One entry per person, and this is open only to those with US addresses, but regardless of whether you are a blogger or non-blogger, you're welcome to enter. Best of luck!


And just so you know, I do have some actual...you know, POSTS planned for this week. I have had my head down working for the past two weeks and have barely had time to do much else. :) It's a good thing, but it's also terrible that I've neglected my blog for this long...sigh.


And the WINNER IS:
But who IS that??? {We Are That Family!!!} Lucky dog...you win all kinds of contests! Congrats...stay tuned - I might have something up my sleeve for next month...along with some posts I promised. Ahem.

This would be the coolest! I have a friend whom this would be perfect for; she really needs to be able to access email, but to add it to her cell phone plan would be outrageous.

How fun! This would be great for my MIL if I could get her to use it LOL

Andrea said...

Sounds wonderful! I think that I would take the charcoal one, very versatile! Thanks for the opportunity.

BTW, I frequently read your posts, just a little 'comment shy'. :)

What give-away. Count me in too.

I usually go for anything with a red tint, but that aqua blue is looking really nice.

dancinginthemargins said...

Ooooo. I love this! I'd go for aqua blue because my phone is red and my laptop is charcoal...need to mix it up a little!

WMW said...

Looks cool! Great for me to give to my mom who is not super techie but would like to check email sometimes when traveling. She'd like aqua!

This would be PERFECT to have on hand! I work from home and it's not always feasible to take along a lap top when I go places. It would be great to keep in touch with customers and family when I'm out and about.

Honestly, all the colors look good. If I won just surprise me with a color. LOL!

Thank you so much for the giveaway. This is a pretty nifty neato thing to have.

Charlene said...

I would love to win one of these nifty gadgets for my favorite (only) grandchild who is away in college. We keep in touch by e-mail and this would be so easy for both of us. She has a birthday on December 16th and this would be the perfect gift. I know about perfect gifts as she was mine in 1989!!

Okay. I want to enter this, but I won your last give away, so I am afraid my chances of winning again are pretty slim! But I don't believe in luck so...here goes!!

Mzzterry said...

cherry red is my color of choice for absolutely everything.

Tim said...

Hi
I would love to have that for camp.
I would like the grey one. Thanks for
the giveaway.

exotic1 said...

This is exactly what I need~! You see I am in the middle of the woods on top of a mountain which we have to actually walk to in order to get there each and every single weekend. When I come home on Sundays my email is swamped and it takes me two days to clear it out so I can do what I want on my PC just for it to start all over again in 3 days. It's a vicious cycle every week. To be able to check my email and keep it under control while I'm in the middle of no where would be a dream come true. I wouldn't leave home with out it for sure~! Thanks for sharing. Now I'm off to clear some more emails so I can have fun again.

Mandy said...

I would choose the charcoal grey. Id never heard of the Peek before...what an awesome little gadget!

Mrs Lemon said...

oooh, oooh! pick me for the charcoal gray! I am not away from home often enough to need it for myself, but I'm sure I could find someone to give it to :)

LeAnna said...

Just what I need, e-mail to go! Actually a pretty nifty idea...

I would go with cherry red, so that way my husband wouldn't be tempted to borrow it. Good thing Craigslist doesn't have a RSS feed, otherwise he'd take one of these things to bed with him.

I've missed your posts! Glad you'll be back soon. :)

Dana said...

I'm loving the cherry red! Hope it's not too late to enter!

lindabelle said...

Cherry Red would be awesome and what an awesome giveaway!

We are THAT Family said...

What a great giveaway!

I would love to give my hubby the charcoal gray one for Christmas. I think he would LOVE it!

Jeni said...

I'd like it in aqua blue!

Especially Heather said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I could really use one of these(in Cherry Red, of course!)

{Karla} said...

If it's not too late, i'd love to enter.

(thanks!)

{Karla} said...

oops - got so excited I forgot to mention the color! Cherry Red.

Mandy said...

Is it too late for me to enter? I'd love to have one of these! I love the Black Cherry color.

Mrs. Bubba said...

Oooh... Cherry red would be awesome. Now the question would be to keep it for myself or to give it away... not sure yet. If I give it away I know who I would give it to.
