Microsoft's Free-Time Machine site goes live revealing sweepstakes & game
Just as we predicted, Microsoft's Free-Time Machine promotion that coincides with the Nokia Lumia 900 launch on AT&T, has gone live. The site just changed over to reveal that you can win a trip to Hawaii for four as well as a chance for one of 200,000 other "instant prizes".
All you need to do is enter your email address and then you're almost ready to play. The next screen asks for your details "in case you win" and then you get to play a simple memory game with the Live Tiles. Match the tiles and you win something. (We won a free song download. Meh, not bad, we'll take it.)
Here are the other official prizes:
50 x $250 Best Buy gift code
100 x $150 Mollymaid.com gift code
1000 x $50 Omaha Steaks gift code
2000 x $30 Fandango gift code
7000 x $5 Amazon gift code
190,000 x 160 Microsoft Points <-- "Free song"
You can also enter twice a day to play but you can't use alternate email addresses (it'll void the contest if you win). Of course if you're New York City, Chicago or San Francisco you can also stop by numerous locations to see the "Free-time Machine in person". More on that here including info on special guests.
Sounds kind of fun and we'll try to be there.
