The Prizes

Most giveaways have a single prize to win. Either you like the prize or you don’t. That’s not Geek Deal HQ style. There are multiple prizes, multiple winners, and multiple ways to enter. In last year’s giveaway, nine winners enjoyed a total of over $350 in prizes! You helped choose the prizes and it’s my pleasure to give them away. You won’t find another contest giving away geektastic prizes like these! Since there are still sponsors working to be part of this exciting giveaway, I reserve the right to alter the prizes, their tiers, and the number of designated winners until the close of the contest. If you have a product or service you’d like included, hurry up and contact me so we can make it happen.

Contest Rules

Entry Period

This Giveaway ends December 8, 2012 at Midnight EST. At that time, no further entries will be accepted.

Eligibility

The giveaway is only open to persons with a United States mailing address who are 18 years of age or older. The winner must provider their email and shipping address within three (3) days of the contest end or forfeit their prize. We can’t ship your prize if you won’t give us an address. Only one (1) prize per winner. Sorry International fans most “geek deals” are only applicable within the United States anyway. The Blu-ray prizes will only play in a Region A/1 or multi-region player. Finally, it’s too legally complicated and costly to comply with the rules in every country around the globe.

Prize Details

On December 9, 2012, winners will be randomly chosen from eligible contestants. Three (3) winners will each receive one (1) item from the tier-1 selection (approximate retail value of $30-$40). Four (4) winners will each receive one (1) item from the tier-2 selection (approximate retail value of $20-$30). Six (6) winners will each receive one (1) item from the tier-3 selection (approximate retail value of $10-$20). At the winner’s request, blu-ray only prize winners may request substitution of one (1) DVD copy. GeekDealHQ.com reserves the right to make the final decision. No purchase is necessary and it will not increase your odds of winning. Read the Official Giveaway Rules

This deal is so incredibly geektastic you must share it!

    Wow that’s an awesome prize list! I’m into all kinds of geekery. Seen every Star Wars in theater first run, for better or worse and playing video games since Pong was the epitome of home consoles.

    My geek cred? Where to I start?

    I have met and gotten autographs from all but one surviving member of the Star Trek TOS cast (and one deceased one).

    I have watched every episode of all 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1 (twice)

    Between meeting Billy West, Tara Strong, and Rob Paulsen I have met the voices of every cool and funny cartoon character in the modern age.

    I and my fiancee peformed a Klingon wedding (not binding on Earth) at a Star Trek convention. We made our own costumes, had a Klingon band, Orion slave dancers, and a bat’leth arch. It was officiated by the founder of the Klingon Language Institute.

    I have model kits from the movie The Black Hole of Maximillian and V.I.N. CENT.

    I could go on, so enter me to win already. :-) And yes, I will “sign up to your newsletter”. All your newsletter are subscribed to me.

    It all started when I watched my first Star Trek episode (original series). I was hooked on all things Star Trek until I discovered Star Wars. I love them both!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win geektastic prizes!

      You doing a great job and some of them are putting up a fight but they will be assimilated! Of course, one of the points to the giveaway is to attract new geeks to the Geek Deal HQ family… and then, someday, and that day may never come, I’ll call upon them to do a service for me.

    My geek passion lies in video games and comics. I am currently attending Full Sail University for game art and design. Video games and comics have been a huge part of my life and my recovery from a nasty knee injury that I had almost 6 years and 6 surgeries ago. I owe my life to this media

    I can tell you why Storm got a mohawk.

    I can tell you why Wolverine didn’t marry Mariko.

    I can tell you the true ending to Persona 3 FES & Persona 4.

    I can tell you the true demon ending to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.

    I can sing the Silverhawks theme song (mostly).

    I met my husband in a comic book 29 years ago – we’re still reading Batman, by the way. I also have a “crew jacket” from the Batman and Robin movie (yeah, yeah, I know, but I LOVE George Clooney!) that I wear to work. My hubby got me a cel from the movie, too. :-) He ain’t George Clooney, but he’s a sweetie (apologies to River Song for swiping her nickname for her “hubby”.

    I have geek cred, because I always correct my wife regarding the differences between The Amazing Spider-man and Ultimate Spider-man. P.S. I cannot believe they did a comic crossover, and the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon is bullsh*t.

    I can also recite every word of The Terminator. I should do a one-man play!

    My geek passion lies with Anime and gadgets. I love headphones and hi end audio in general. And I watch nearly every anime that airs every year. All my anime posters and imported anime blu rays give me my geek cred. Not to mention my Pioneer 9G Kuro plasma, only a true geek would know its the best tv made.

    Keep it up man, love the deals!

  16. Posted December 8, 2012 at 8:23 pm | Permalink

    My geek cred lies in anime and being a professional geek in general. I love being a geek though so it all works out.

    Love the prize list and really hope that I’m able to walk away from this with some new shinies!

    Batman and Star Trek are the foundations of my “geek cred”, though my son had nearly drowned me in Harry Potter for the last couple of years.

    Totally geektastic contest! ;) I’m a fan of The Walking Dead, Firefly, Bones, Monty Python… that’s just for starters. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome stuff!

    Geek cred eh? Well I did travel to New Zealand for The Hobbit premiere. Don’t know if that qualifies as uber geek, or just nuts. Either way it was amazing!
