I had been wanting to coordinate the biggest giveaway, like a laptop giveaway here on DragonBlogger.com and a brand new budget gaming laptop seemed an appropriate way to reward the readers of DragonBlogger.com with any fan being able to enter and benefit from the prize!

So I went and got a brand new Lenovo Z585 Budget Gaming laptop and decided to give it away to one lucky fan of Dragon Blogger Technology but instead of using Rafflecopter this time I decided to use Punchtab to run the contest.

With PunchTab the validation of the entries is done by the server and there were too many bogus entries I had to moderate/manually remove in the Rafflecopter giveaways, this will ensure more accurate verification of entries as well as offer a new feature which allows readers to greatly increase their odds of winning.

Yes, you can increase your odds.  The Laptop Giveaway is still a random draw for the winner, but when you enter the contest you will be given a referral link to share, if you get others to click and visit this referral link you get 1 entry, if they enter the contest from your referral link you will get 5 entries for each person that enters under your referral link.

This means if you are clever at helping promote this contest with your referral link on forums, social media…etc you can end up getting thousands of entries and the more entries the greater the odds of winning.

I encourage my readers to be creative, share like crazy and see how many entries you can get.  Good luck to all who enter.

The Lenovo Z585 Laptop we are giving away has the following specs:

Lenovo IdeaPad Z585

  • AMD A8-4500M 1.9GHz
  • 6GB Memory 750GB HDD
  • AMD Radeon HD 7640G

    It’d be cool to win the Lenovo laptop because then everyone in my family will have a laptop or tablet to connect online. That means less fighting over the living room computer.. I could also use a new upgrade for my laptop setup sooooo I may secretly take this one for myself. *wink-wink*

      When I got a new computer last August, I had a gaming desktop system built. But I travel to California a lot and sometimes spend a week or two there at a time, in retrospect I wish I had gotten a gaming laptop instead and saved up more instead of jumping the gun for a desktop.
