Win a Windows Store gift card by leaving a comment on this post

Windows Phone Central

We need to do more contests and random giveaways around here. Let’s start with one right now. You don’t have to do anything fancy to win. Just drop a comment below. We’ll pick three winners.

What’s the prize? How about a $15 gift card for the Windows Store. As you know, it actually ties into your Microsoft account. So you’ll be able to use the gift card to get apps and games on Windows Phone, Windows 8.1 and on your Xbox One/360.

Windows Store Gift Card

We’ll give out three today. Just drop a comment and we’ll randomly select three winners. We'll pick the winners tomorrow and update the post with their usernames. This gives everyone a chance to drop a comment. Be polite and just leave one comment too! Leave more than one comment and you'll be out of the running. 

If you’re bored, list the app/game you’re going to use this cash on. Look forward to phones, Xbox One games and more in the future! 


And the winners are....

  • jonnyjenks
  • mantugaul8
  • TechZOnline

Congratulations! We'll be in touch via email in the next day or so. Everyone else, keep an eye out next week for another awesome contest!

carlosrdd says:

+1020 hope I win I never win anything...

This is not something u can be proud of. This isn't even a contest. Some stupid guys bribe to have his article at the top of the list for most comments. Wpc doesn't need this. You get 500 comments for articles that are over an hour old in the verge and wmpoweruser.

2tomtom says:

WP Central is the best. That's why I visit every day!

singhnsk says:

You won't win.. Because just like you, I never win :P

Yousef Kawmi says:

I'm looking forward to upgrading my 928 with WP8.1 as well!
