      I’m in the same boat. I don’t have an iPhone or Android mobile device. So I can’t take advantage of CheckPoints. You can still enter the contest to win an iPad2 though.

      I’d love to take credit for some of the organization, but I was simply referred to this group giveaway by a blogger friend. One of the bloggers on this list organizes it all and they do other similar contests. E-mail me if you want me to send you some links to their other contests. I’m sure there are other groups of bloggers pooling together to do giveaways too.

      Thanks Nick. I thought it seemed like a cool opportunity too. I couldn’t afford to give away an iPad2 on my own. Plus this contest gets exposure for the whole group.

      Thanks for entering Miranda. If this contest was just about good reasoning to want an ipad, I’d proclaim you as the winner right now. Unfortunately I have no say in who wins and it is just a random draw. Good luck though!

    I would use the Ipad for saving money! I don’t have an Android or Iphone & it seems like there are a lot of electronic coupons, apps like CheckPoint, etc. out there that I could access with one.
    Thanks for helping host this contest!

      Yes I wouldn’t mind having one to help with my blogging work. I’d rather not carry my laptop around, but it would be practical to bring an iPad with me to a friend’s house or to the park.

      Best of luck Melody. It would be a great way to keep the kids entertained. I’d be a bit worried with young kids playing with such a pricey device on their own.

      Cooking is another great use not mentioned yet. I know I’ve looked up a recipe on my computer only to run back and forth from the kitchen. Wishing you good luck Crystal.

    Oh flapjacks! It’s open to US residents only.
    I’ll still answer though, because that’s half the fun.

    If I won an iPad, I would stay up until 3:00am on Fridays playing Settlers of Catan (in bed).

    …I might’ve already done that last night on my phone, so really, do I even deserve to win if I could?

      Sorry about the contest restriction! I was disappointed myself when I noticed that. I guess it’s a bit ironic that a Canadian blog would be co-hosting a contest that is only open to US residents. It’s too bad they don’t just add a stipulation that international entries have to cover all the shipping and duties.

        Totally, because I would be more than willing to pay the shipping on that badboy!

        As a Canadian, I am used to getting the short-end of the stick when it comes to contests. I am fine with it though, especially since I’d rather keep my Smarties, Beaver Tails and poutines.

          You forgot to mention ketchup chips. For some reason Americans haven’t figured that out yet either. Little do they know what we’re enjoying up here in our igloos.

    Cool way to run a contest. I don’t have an android or iPhone but I followed people on twitter in order to get a chance to win :)

    I don’t have a smart phone(can you believe that, must be the only one that doesn’t). An ipad would be so handy and easy to carry when I don’t want to drag along my laptop.

      Don’t worry Deb. I’m in the same boat. At least I can say that my phone still fits comfortably in my pocket and I’m not tied to a 3 year contract. Good luck on the ipad draw.

      With all these people still wanting a wii, I might have to do a blogpost on here offering to sell mine. It was fun when I bought it, but eventually I got tired of having to move the coffee table and recharge batteries.

    Thank you to everyone who entered this contest. I was a bit surprised by the response.

    The contest is now officially over. The winner of the iPad2 will be contacted shortly. Good luck everyone!
