If you were like me, you saw the Vizio TV commercial during Super Bowl, but kept watching TV instead of checking out the Irvine TV seller’s $1 million contest online. (In fact, some people thought the commercial was the worst commercial this year.)
The company sent me a reminder today. And it’s actually a pretty good contest worth mentioning to readers. Vizio is giving away 500 55-inch LCD TVs with 120 Hz refresh rate and 9 high definition inputs (drool). It plans to hand out 17 of the $1,999 XVT series TVs every week beginning Feb. 23 through Aug. 31. The last weekend it’s giving away 24, which makes a grand total of 500 TVs or $1 million.
All you need to do is enter at Vizio.com, or 18.104.22.168, which asks that you submit a “Your Vizio Story” on how you found Vizio and its impact on your life. Tell them you heard about it on Gadgetress and maybe they’ll give you bonus points (kidding).
Apparently, many Super Bowl viewers did visit the site during or after the game. Visits to its site grew 400 percent after the commercial aired, the company said.
Last chance to enter the contest is Aug. 14, 2009. Good luck!
