This guy. His name is Mike, and he made a post to Slickdeals on December 7th. We used Random.org to generate a random integer between 1 and 190 (we got that many entries), and 75 is the number that came up. Mike, that’s you. Congrats! And Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays, or whichever non-denominational end-of-year greeting you’d like. We’ll be in touch shortly.
For everyone that particiated, thank you. My sincere apologies that we couldn’t get every single one of you something, but don’t worry: we got tons more contests just around the corner, so stay tuned.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering what’s in Mike’s giftbasket, keep on reading.
