You’ve likely noticed that we’re constantly trying to give back to the community that supports us so well by giving away prizes of all shapes and sizes. So you can probably imagine how excited we were when the folks at appsasia and SK Planet approached us with an iPad giveaway of epic proportions.
Throughout this entire week, SK Planet will be giving away six new iPads in order to celebrate their new minty fresh marketplace app, Mint Market. But that’s not even the best part. One of those six iPads has been set aside exclusively for our readers to win! You can find out how to participate in both the main Easter Egg Hunt Event and our special AppAdvice giveaway below.
Mint Market is a free online marketplace that allows you to buy and sell pre-owned items that are in mint condition, hence the name. Since the app includes full Facebook integration, you won’t need to sign up for yet another account, either. Just login to Facebook through Mint Market, decide how much or how little you want to share, and start buying and selling.
When buying and selling a product on Mint Market, you’re able to decide who you want your customer base and shopping friends to be. You can offer and buy products from all over the world, or you can focus on friends, family, colleagues, or regions nearby. When shopping, you’re able to refine your results by condition, price, category, and location. You can also create special custom feeds and be notified via an alert when a specific item has become available nearby. Items can even be added to favorites in case you’re not ready to pull the trigger quite yet.
Mint Market features its own private messages system, so you can easily keep in touch with buyers and sellers. It also includes seller history, the ability to customize your alerts, public comments, and the ability to share items you like with friends.
Mint Market is available in the App Store for free. You’re definitely going to want to download it and give it a try since it plays an important role in the iPad giveaway.
To participate in the big Mint Market iPad giveaway, head to Mint Market’s Facebook page and read today’s hint. The hint will describe an item (What item for sale was made into a popular movie?), which you must hunt down in Mint Market, take a screenshot of the correct item, and then send it off to firstname.lastname@example.org. The team at SK Planet will then randomly choose a winner from all of the correct item submissions and post it on their Facebook page.
The Easter Egg Hunt Event starts today and goes through Friday, April 13. Each day there will be a new hint and a new winner, so make sure to check SK Planet’s Facebook page every day.
As for our extra special AppAdvice reader giveaway, all you have to do for a chance to win a new iPad is follow us on Twitter and retweet this article with this hashtag in your tweet: #AppAdviceiPad. At the end of the week, SK Planet will search for all of the tweets containing the hashtag and choose one lucky winner of a brand new iPad. Good luck!
UPDATE: The email address in the official Facebook fan page appears to have a typo. Please use the email linked in the post (email@example.com) to enter the contest. So sorry for anyone who got their emails bounced back, but go ahead and try again with the correct email. Good luck!
