By now, our subscribers have already started to receive their special May “Gossip Girl” Birchboxes. We’re thrilled to have partnered with the show to bring you this awesome collection of products.
But that’s not all—on May 14th, in honor of the season finale, we are hosting a Trivia Contest on our Facebook page where you’ll have the chance to win a $500 Birchbox Shopping Spree! To enter, you’ll have to tune in to the “Gossip Girl” season finale on May 14th at 8/7c and then visit our Facebook page after the show. Answer all the trivia questions and you’ll have a chance to win.
The contest will be open until 5/17 at midnight so you’ll even have time to re-watch the episode online!
At Birchbox, we’re all about discovery. We’re here to help you find an eye cream that makes your dark circles fade away or to introduce you to your new favorite eyeliner. Our friends at Zagat are out to do the same thing for shopping and they are inviting you to vote in their New York City Shopping Survey!
We’re trusting you to share your experiences with Zagat about the stores you’ve visited in NYC: from blue jeans and jewelry to cheese and chocolate. And we know shopping can be hard work, which is why we’ve teamed up to give you a $2,000 shopping spree and a free year’s subscription to Birchbox! Get contest deets after the jump!
How do you get such an awesome reward, you ask? Easy—just vote in Zagat’s New York City Shopping Survey by rating and reviewing the retail and gourmet food shops you’ve visited in the past year. By completing the survey, you’ll also be eligible to receive a free copy of the New York City Shopping Survey or New York City Food Lover’s Guide when they are published later this year.
How to enter the contest:
1. Fill out the registration form here by February 20th: http://zagat.bz/wS9yDZ You must complete the registration before any of your survey responses are eligible in this contest.
2. Go to http://zagat.bz/zWK6Sr to view and vote on a retail or gourmet food shop to be included in the NYC Shopping Survey. Tell Zagat about their quality, display, service and estimated cost. Each quality review you write will be judged as a new entry. We’ll go through all the reviews you write during the contest period and give them points.
If you’re wondering what we’re looking for in a quality review, here are a few things to consider:
a. Originality – how creative or original is your review style?
b. Capturing the spirit of the place – how well do you describe the atmosphere?
c. Unique viewpoints – do you offer a unique point of view?
d. Writing style – how well written is your review?
The six entrants with the highest number of points will win:
Grand Prize: (1 winner) $2,000 Shopping Spree at a Zagat Rated Shop and a one year subscription to Birchbox—a $2,110 total value.
Second Prize (5 winners): A one year subscription to Birchbox ($110 value).
