Greetings, Stumblers! Want a Chromebook? Well, you’re in luck. We just launched a contest with Google in which we’ll be awarding brand new Chromebooks to three users.
We’re really excited to be working with Google on such a unique contest idea and we’re looking forward to sharing more fun and practical ways to use StumbleUpon.
Chrome and StumbleUpon are a great combination: Chrome offers hundreds of thousands of apps and extensions in the Chrome Web Store, so finding the ones perfect for you is challenging. StumbleUpon is a great way to discover and share amazing hidden gems. We’ll be awarding Chromebooks to the three users that discover and add to StumbleUpon great-but-not-yet-widely-known Chrome apps or extensions that experience the most new installs at the end of the two-week contest period. All apps and extensions with fewer than 100 installs as of today qualify for this promotion. If you love legalese, check out the full Official Rules.
Before you begin, you’ll need to have the Chrome browser and the StumbleUpon extension. For those of you that don’t have either, Google has created a nifty bundle for us that allows you to download both at the same time. Check it out here.
Once you have these, participation is easy:
- Using Chrome, dig through the Chrome Web Store to find a cool app or extension with fewer than 100 installs.
- While you’re on the page of the app or extension, open the StumbleUpon extension menu by clicking the SU icon in the top right corner of your Chrome browser (adjacent to the omnibox) and click “Like” to add it to StumbleUpon.
- Check for your StumbleUpon username on the Latest Additions page. You will also see a confirmation page if your addition has been entered.
Each user may contribute up to 5 additions. Any more will be ineligible.
We’ve created a quick Tutorial to walk you through the steps and to help you start finding eligible apps and extensions.
Because success is based on the number of new installs the app or extension experiences, be sure to tell all your friends about the ones you’ve added to increase your chances of winning.
If you want to see great apps or extensions that have already been submitted, StumbleThru them by opening the StumbleUpon extension menu and clicking “StumbleThru.”
So, what are you waiting for? Get started and have fun discovering!
