Sprint is giving away 10 HTC Evo 4Gs to Sprint Premier customers

HTC Evo 4G will be launching on Sprint on June 13

I have no idea what being a Sprint Premier customer does for you on most days, but today it is offering you a kick ass contest from Sprint that could potentially net you an HTC Evo 4G, a trip to Maui, Chicago, Las Vegas, or Houston, and $4,000.

So the first step is to figure out if you are a Sprint customer; look down at your phone and if it says “Sprint” on it somewhere then chances are good that you can check this one off the list.

Now you need to verify whether or not you are a Sprint Premier customer. If you have an individual account with a base rate plan of at least $69.99, or a family plan with a base rate plan of at least $99.99, or if you have been a Sprint customer for at least 10 years you qualify. If you meet the requirements but have never bother to sign up you can do so right here.

Alright, now you can finally hit the contest page to enter. It’s a little more involved than just hitting an enter button, but not too bad. The only thing that will require any thought is the “fast fact” essay (150 words or less) that tells them what you can do really fast. This can be basically anything, but you are being judged on creativity and “entertainment value” so I would steer away from the first five things that pop into your head.

You’ve probably already made your way to the contest page by now, but just in case you are sticking with me for some reason here is a more complete description of the prizes. There are 10 HTC Evo 4Gs that will come with a free year of service. These 10 are the Semi-Finalists and they will have to blog about their experiences with their Evo 4G. The top 4 bloggers as selected by Sprint (the Finalists) will then be given a long weekend trip to one of the four aforementioned cities. Finally the public at large will get to vote on their favorite among the four bloggers and the winner will receive $4,000.

What? What are you still doing here? Get out there and enter!

    What am I still doing here you ask? I’m not with Sprint. :(

      Fair enough; I’m in the same boat. We can hang out here and make fun of their silly contest; they’ll never know because they already left for the contest page. :)

    I’m so on top of that after work. Woohoo sprint!

      First time I saw EVO on its debut last 3 weeks, and my first reaction was like, 8mp cam and 4G connection? superb indeed! As for the accessories, I wouldn’t mind getting them as long as someone will pay that for me! Be practical, Evo comparisonhttp://bit.ly/evo-4g-comparisson-superphone

    The biggest benefit of a premier account is you get to upgrade every 1 year instead of 22 months and get the full discount on the phone. It kind of rocks actually.

    you are probably a sprint customer…

    • http://Website Marshall Willis

      Actually with the firmware leaks, a quick visit to the forums and 5 minutes of your time and you have 2.1 phone.

    This offer is really enticing and makes me want to be a Sprint customer!

    I just entered the contest. I’d like to correct a couple of things stated in the article, though. First off, the essay has to be “at least” 150 words, not 150 words “or less”. Also, if you weren’t a Sprint Premiere customer as of 4/21/2010, you won’t be eligible for the contest. So, even if you sign up during the contest period, (It runs through May 9th.) you won’t be eligible.

    I want to win this phone SOOOOOO much!

      Thanks for the heads up EvilFerret. No idea why the 150 words thing got flipped for me, I guess the text entry box being about two lines and the extreme brevity of their examples threw me.

      Regarding the Sprint Premier status; the site suggests that if you meet any of the three requirements then you are automatically a Premier member whether you have signed up or not. The link I gave in that paragraph will let people check if they aren’t sure though.

        There’s a 6 Month waiting period for new customers even when the premier requirements are met.

        • http://www.technogasms.com Sean Riley

          Duly noted, the fine print is often a little less straightforward.

          Again though, if people aren’t sure about their status they can just check the site.
