Get hooked up with a tech room makeover in Nokia's sweepstakes

Nokia Hookup

Look around at the four walls you're currently located within. Check out some of the dated gadgets that lay around. Would you like to have said room refreshed with new hardware and a general makeover? Nokia is offering exactly this with the #NOKIAHOOKUP contest. The company will select 3 lucky winners who will be hooked up with a $10,000 room makeover. Sound good? Read on for the details.

It's quite the reward, we mentioned a full technology makeover, right? So what exactly is Nokia providing in terms of hardware to the three lucky winners? Should you win this sweepstake, you'll receive the following:

  • Nokia Lumia 925
  • Wireless Charging Case & Wireless Charging Plate
  • JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speakers
  • Xbox
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 2
  • Plus furnishings and décor, designed exclusively by the Apartment Therapy

How exactly does one enter the sweepstakes to be in with a chance of pocketing the above? Simply head on over to the Hookup webpage (linked below) and hit the "Entry" tab. This will pull up a quick form for you to fill out. Fancy increasing your chances? You can refer up to five friends per day to the contest and should each one of them enter, you'll receive an additional submission.

So, the more friends you refer, the higher your chances. Oh, and you can grab an extra entry if you share the sweepstake on Twitter. Unfortunately, there are some restrictions. This contest is only open for residents (over 18) in the US.

The contest has been running since October, but luckily you've still got three days left to fire in your entry (doors close on November 15, 2013 at 11:59pm). Head on over to Nokia's website to get hooked up. Good luck and be sure to send us some shots of your new pad should you win the makeover.

Thanks, MyNL822, for the tip!

Damn US only contests!! This is such a good one!

ahmedjan87 says:

I know that feel bro

gedmurphy says:

It's fustrating that a Finnish company runs competitions in the US, a country which isn't interested in their products....

DJCBS says:

Nokia is not Swedish, it's Finnish ;)

gedmurphy says:

Haha, touché. I've now corrected my error :)

Rishicash says:

What are you talking about? IKEA is as Swedish as ABBA and Volvo. Even their logo is blue and yellow which is the same as the Swedish flag.

wpguy says:

And yet every year millions in the U.S. treat Ikea as a destination, traveling hundreds of miles to shop the closest one for all kinds of home decor, furniture, and kitchen items, pausing long enough to eat meatballs, mashed potatoes, and lingonberry sauce.

NIST says:

Quality furniture always has an Allen wrench.

Rishicash says:

We love Kimi Raikkonen! What else do you guys make again?

Tiemen_S says:

I'm getting sick and tired of it as well! C'mon NOKIA, you're a European company by heart. At least let some European equivalent contest run..

Yo, I know that feeling. You go to the page, get all excited, see it's US only, and then you, simply, FREAKIN' RAGE/SWEAR AT NOKIA.

Editguy1900 says:

My guess is that these things are decided by the different regions of Nokia. They're trying to build market-share in the U.S., so what better way than a contest?

Oh nice! I want to participate...
Sounds good... Yes... Yes... Huh? Restrictions?.. Wait, you don't sa... Yea-a-ah, US only :/

Don't worry, thanks for the tip anyway

Perhaps you should add a "US only" on the title so we save time opening the article

baron1996 says:

Seriously man i was really gonna hit the link when at the end i read us only damn!!

Sarang68 says:

Normally they do,but i think in the excitement of the sweepstake,which Rich must have entered, if he's American,he forgot to put it in the title!

TechFreak1 says:

Rich is a uk based editor lol, I bet he is feeling the same as the rest of us unless he some "cough", special contacts :P.

Fiann says:

Fuuu. Can't enter from my phone. The Nokia page works but then it redirects to the Facebook page which DOESN'T work.

Dusteater says:

The "Enter" button doesn't work in IE11 either. Cannot enter with IE11, that is annoying.

razorguy says:

Same here. I think it may still enter you but we just don't get the chance to refer friends. Hopefully I can do it from my laptop later.

MrTechRat says:

God forbid you read something anyway.

WP8dot89 says:

Nokia in Asia should actively do stuff like this..

damn.. why it always Nokia in UK and US have such compatition with such amazing prizes especially Lumia phone and devices

MrTechRat says:

I entered just fine from my phone.

MikeF74 says:

Is there any way to enter where you don't have to spam your friends on facebook?

Chris_Kez says:

I wonder about that.  Do you actually need to post on your wall?  You enter name, email, phone (optional) then agree that Nokia can view your FB public profile and friends list... THEN there is a pop-up to post the contest on your wall.

CX1 says:

Dummy account

Shad0wguy says:

I never win anything, but can't hurt to try.

Switchfoot3r says:

I'm getting sick of these US-only contests. I mean, c'mon, Nokia! You guys are giving too many prizes to a country that doesn't even buy your products. What about those of us who are supporting the company from other countries?

ahmedjan87 says:

Damn right
Amen to that brother

MrTechRat says:

You have a damn good point, but surely there's a reason they do it here. Maybe a tax issue? I don't know.

Rishicash says:

Look at the bright side. The US may not buy their products (what are they again?) but at least they're not speaking German now!

Switchfoot3r says:

What are you talking about? I don't speak German. I'm from Chile. I speak Spanish LOL! I guess you meant something else and I didn't get it :P

Rishicash says:

I was humorously referring to the comment made about the US ignoring Finland with the Nokia offer. Finland was rather chummy with the Nazis to fend off the Soviets in WWII and had the US not gotten involved, Nazi Germany would have dominated and occupied all of Europe including Finland.

I'm an American and really want to move to Chile. Your country has suffered greatly because of us and is recovering very nicely no thanks to us. A beautiful country with beautiful people. I've heard it referred to as the "new California" which is where I live and I'd love a new one!

Switchfoot3r says:

Hahahaha now I got the joke. I'm sorry, I haven't slept in more than 20 hours so I'm kind of slow.

Yeah, we've suffered a lot because of many countries in Chile. However, there's no hatred in our hearts so foreigners will always be welcome :)

I don't think the whole country can be called "new California." But I might be misundertanding the reason why. If it's for its wheather, there are all kinds of it throughout Chile. If it is for its warm people, you guys are probably right.

Cheers, and let me knowif you're coming!

US only sucks! :x
to hell with the room make over..the other gifts are so amazing..they could've kept them international at least!

rkeenan says:

It requires Facebook sign in, so do not be too depressed about not being able to enter.

wpguy says:

U.S. only contests are to make up for the carrier situation we are stuck with.

Daakkon says:

What about us Canadians? :(

Rishicash says:

You have our deepest sympathies. Rise up and break the chains and free yourselves from the tyrannical yoke of Rodgers! Oh wait....you're Canadians and don't do that sort of thing. Never mind.

blackhawk556 says:

After I hit enter, I get an error 500 :'(

MK7 says:

Should have included US ONLY into the title, don't know why i even bother to read these entries anyway, 99.99% of them are US ONLY (i know, not WPCentral's fault, but still).

Verkunder says:

You people realy need to chill it with the complaining. You don't have carriers that nerf the shit out of phones (AT&T and the 1520...)

Besides, the contest site doesn't work.

Marco Gomes1 says:

Neither do we have carriers who finance the phone. I have a Lumia 920 because a paid nearly €500 (+- $560) for it in full. If i want a 1520 i will have to pay around €700 (+- $770) in full. Bear in mind that the minimum salary in Portugal is €485, around $500.

hellodav7 says:

It may be that there are a lot of people signing up but the web page just locks up. my not sure if  I was able to register or not.

MrSimmix says:

Which Xbox? Xbox One?

juanitoriv says:

The room I'm in now.. 8). Well, I'm sitting on the crapper where I DO get most of my "thinking" done..8P. I like it!!

dula714 says:

No Canada? :(

quek9 says:

The site isn't working for me....sabotage! :)

cdbstl76 says:

Same here.  I have tried from serveral devices and different points in time. I just get a blank white page ...

no germany :(

btw inviting friends to contests like that might increase your direct chance to win but on the other hand the more people participate the lower is your chance to win... ;P it's a vicious circle

ahlun Lee says:

The world is only consist of US.

Miti 1982 says:

I understand that Nokia is focusing on winning the US but it is getting absurd how many goodies are Americans getting as opposed to Europeans.

And i have been a loyal user for the past 13 years... sending this from my 920.

Marco Gomes1 says:

Getting real fed up of this US only contests, especially when the vast majority of Nokia users are outside of the US, like me (Portugal).
