Memorex is Turning 50! {A Giveaway}

Posted: September 9th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Reviews and Giveaways | 62 Comments »

As a blogger, one thing I get is a lot of pitches for product reviews and giveaways. Every once in awhile I get a pitch to host a party. A few weeks ago I agreed to host a Yo Gabba Gabba party to celebrate the 50th Birthday of Memorex.

I was kind of excited about this. I mean, Yo Gabba Gabba had Anthony Bourdain on…how can you not love that? (This show seriously has some of the best guests ever- talk about catering to the parents!)

So I signed up.

A few weeks went by and I took another look at my calender. It wasn’t looking so hot for hosting a party.

So I tucked my little blogger tail between my legs and I cancelled. (Which was a bummer because the swag was pretty cool!) I did have a little guilt though, backing out at the last minute like that, so I agreed to do a giveaway to one of my readers.

For a Memorex Party Cube:

Memorex Paty Cube Giveaway- 50th Birthday

Kinda cool, don’t ya think? It’s an iPod Dock that is ready to go wherever the party is with it’s fold down handle, multi-directional speakers and rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a 4-6 hours of continuous play. Retails for $99.99. Not too shabby.

So, who wants to celebrate?

The party starts Friday, September 9th at 1pm EST on UStream and continues until Friday, September 16th so there is plenty of time to catch up on the fun.

And after you’ve checked that out- enter the giveaway:



We have a winner!

#23 is Jenn and she has been contacted and will be receiving her very own Memorex PartyCube shortly. Thanks everyone!

Disclosure: I was supposed to throw a Yo Gabba Gabba themed party for Memorex but backed out at the last minute when I realized Sarah Silverman was not going to be able to attend my schedule was a bit fuller than usual. I was not compensated for this post.
