This is EXCLUSIVE TO BLOGGERS.
Recently I had an opportunity to do a blog review with Sears for an iComfort Serta Mattress. Right now, Sears is looking for another blogger to review an iComfort mattress, along with a base (including an adjustable base) on their blogs. They are looking for someone that is really interested and can be creative with their blog posts.
To apply to be the last person to join the “team” of reviewers, all you need to do is create a blog post addressing the following:
- The Submission must introduce yourself and explain why you deserve a chance to review the iComfort mattress.
- The Submission must also include an explanation of your three (3) favorite features of the iComfort series of mattresses from Serta.
Turn in your post here:
To enter, (a) publish your Submission (defined below) on your blog website visit www.shopyourway.com and log into the Website (existing users) or follow the onscreen instructions to become a registered user of the Website.
http://bit.ly/OG3hS3 (the “Entry Page”); and (d) submit one (1) link to your Blog Post on the Entry Page during the Contest Period. Submissions may be made beginning at 10:00 am Central Time on August 21, 2012 and must be received no later than 11:59 pm Central Time on September 9, 2012 (“Submission Period”). Sponsor will not notify entrant whether the Submission has been accepted or rejected.
On or about September 12, 2012, a panel of judges selected by Sponsor (the “Judges”) will review the Submissions and select up to one (1) potential Grand Prize winner and up to five (5) First Prize winners based on the following judging criteria:
- (1) creative articulation of why entrant needs an iComfort mattress to review (25%);
- (2) creative articulation of why entrant loves shopping at Sears (25%);
- (3) use of graphics and video in the entrant’s Blog Post (20%);
- (4) engagement for the Blog Post (as measured by a sum of tweets, likes, pins, stumbles, and
- comments displayed by social media icons displayed on the Blog Post) (15%); and
- (5) inclusion of the Sears iComfort Labor Day Promotion Offer (15%) (offer details provided
- below) and official link to the Promotion Offer product page on http://bit.ly/SearsiComfort)
- (collectively “Judging Criteria”).
Grand Prize: There will be up to one Grand Prize, consisting of the opportunity to review an iComfort mattress of the winner’s choice (including an adjustable or standard frame and delivery to one (1) location within the 48 contiguous United States or the District of Columbia) with an approximate retail value of up to $4000. Winner will be required to agree to write one (1) blog post describing their in-store iComfort mattress selection experience, and one (1) blog post describing their evaluation of the iComfort mattress.
B. First Prize: There will be up to five (5) First Prizes, each consisting of the opportunity to review a set of two (2) iComfort Scrunch Pillows (including delivery to one (1) location within the 48 contiguous United States or the District of Columbia) with an approximate retail value of up to $159. Each winner will be required to agree to write one (1) blog post describing their evaluation of the iComfort pillow.
Just be creative!~ The beauty of writing a blog post is that you can show off why this would be a great fit for your site and get really creative. On items like this, it can be really competive to get this type of offer since many reps look for stats. This wont require that..its all about YOU.
Don’t want to review one but want to win one?
No problem! just leave a comment on my post at this link (where there are also several other ways to enter) and you can gain an entry to a public contest Sears is having to WIN one.
Please double check the official rules if you have additional questions.
