“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
At Republic, we pride ourselves on having members who are smart for leaving the big carriers and living the WiFi life. This month we want to celebrate with a battle of wits to show us how you’re uniquely smart, not just with your phone and service, but in all aspects of your life. All for a chance to win an awesome prize!
There are two legs of the contest. The first one is for members who are below or equal to our Community’s cell data usage average for the month of March. The second is for members who are above the Community cell data usage average in March. What’s the prize you ask? A free Chromecast! Wirelessly stream your favorite music, movies, and shows to your TV from your phone or PC. Wow your friends as you seamlessly beam photos from your Moto to your television! With a Chromecast, you can make your TV as smart as your phone!
Here’s how to play…
Game 1) Below or Equal to Community Average: Check your usage email from Republic. If your March monthly average for cell data usage was BELOW or equal to the community average, here is your challenge:
The Challenge: “Show us how you’re smart.” – Post or send us pictures or videos of you “being smart.” They could be your best life hacks or handy tips and tricks. The more creative the better! Share your pictures or videos with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, our Community, or send us an email at email@example.com by April 25th to enter. Just remember to use #ThinkSmart if you’re sharing on social so we can see it! Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see some examples to get you started.
The Prize: The most creative, fun, witty entries will be selected by Republic staff and will win a Chromecast for themselves and also have the option to gift another Chromecast to a friend (a non Republic member). 100 winners will be selected in total.
Game 2) Above Community Average: Check your usage email from Republic. If your March monthly average for cell data usage was ABOVE the community average, here is your challenge: The Challenge: Return to your Usage Email. Follow the link in the green banner there to find clues for solving a word game hidden in your Usage email. Once you solve the puzzle, email the answer to @firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win. (Let’s play fair, members who post the answer publicly will be disqualified.) The Prize: A free Chromecast. The first 80 members to email with the correct answer to the word game by April 25th 11:59 PST will win.
Game 2 is over! The answer was “HANDOVER” and you are some super smarties!!! Thank you for playing. All Game 2 winners have been sent an email notification.
