A Freebie & A Giveaway!


When I saw this offer, I knew I just had to pass it along to all you bloggers out there. Both the freebie and the giveaway are part of the Charter Laptop-a-Day Giveaway. Charter is a high-speed internet service provider. If you have been thinking of switching because you are still on dial-up, your service is too expensive, or your service is unreliable, then you should definitely read on.

The freebie Charter is giving away is a Shell gas gift card. With the price of gas today, who couldn't use that? I predict that the amount of the gift card varies depending on which plan you decide to purchase. Here is a summary of the plans Charter offers online:

  • Charter High-Speed® Internet at $19.99/mo for 6 months
  • Charter Digital Home™ and High-Speed Internet at $69.98/mo for 6 months
  • Charter Digital Home™, High-Speed Internet, and Charter Telephone® at $99.97/mo. for 12 months.

After you have made your purchase, you will receive the free Shell gas gift card. You will also be entered in a drawing for one of 30 HP Compaq Presario C770US Laptops! Charter is giving away 30 of these laptops in 30 days. Here is a full description of the laptop you can win:

  • Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor
  • 15.4" WXGA Screen
  • 2GB RAM -160GB hard drive
  • DVD Burner Built in Wi-Fi and Ethernet

As a bonus, the winners of the laptops will also receive a NEOtec Laptop Backpack! I think this is the best Back to School deal online right now for high speed internet. If you have a student going off to college, they probably could really use a new laptop. Here's an even better idea . . . you could keep it for yourself and give them your old one. ;P
