Elitegroup Announces "ECS Nonstop Shop Deco Competition"

Facebook-based India-only contest is valid from 2nd - 31st August; requires no purchase, prizes include umbrellas and speakers.


Elitegroup Computer Systems, a Taiwanese manufacturer of motherboards, PC components, and OEM gadgets, has announced a contest with up to 15 prizes on offer. Before you get too excited, the electronics company is not giving away motherboards or graphics cards, but is instead focussing on the monsoon, with winners receiving umbrellas and mini speakers. The India-specific ECS Nonstop Shop Deco Competition will start from the 2nd of August and will run till the 31st. No product purchase is required to participate.

To enter the contest, you're required to visit the ECS Elitegroup India page on Facebook and click the Like button. Furthermore, you will have to visit an ECS retailer and take a snap of yourself with an ECS poster in the background, then upload it to the ECS India FB page. If you want to win the "big prize" — which happens to be an umbrella, of all things — at least five of your friends must also become ECS India fans by Liking the page. Five such winners will each receive an ECS-branded "Limited Edition" umbrella, while the rest will vie for the "ordinary" prize of "Limited Edition" (there it is again) speakers for 10 randomly-chosen entries.

If you ask me, this seems like too much trouble to win such chindi items, regardless of how "limited" they might be. It would have been better if ECS had done away with the photo-taking part. Oh well, at least it's free to enter. To make your life easier, here's the contact information for Rashi Peripherals, the distributor for ECS products in India.
