VitaminWater Will Pay You $100,000 If You Give Up Your Smartphone For A Year

Could you slap your best friend for a million dollars? Yes, we know you’d do that for two slices of pizza and a coke. But your best friend is your best friend, but what about your phone? Can you give up your smartphone for a year for a hundred thousand dollars? We have all seen the posts asking us to pick between our phones and something we would love to have. It’s hard to choose, even when you know it’s just a little fun question.

Well, let’s see if you can put up with this: VitaminWater has decided to pay you$100000 only if you leave your smartphone for a year.

Is this for real?

give up your smartphone

Absolutely! This is one hundred percent authentic. The company announced this contest just on the 11th of December as per their new promotion, you can Google it if you don’t believe us. We know, it sounds too good to be true, but we know how much you love that phone of yours and you know it too: it’s not going to be easy. If you think that you have what it takes then sign up now before it closes.

How do you sign up?

To enter this competition, you must share why you think you can do it on social media which is itself an irony since the competition is testing your strength to live without it. You need to put the hashtags “#nophoneforayear” and “#contest” either on Instagram or Twitter to formally sign up.

Just remember to do so before the closing date of the competition which is the 8 of January so hurry now! Your posts and your submissions should stay up by the end of the contest period, or they will not be considered.

What are the rules?

So, you have to explain why you want to avail this opportunity and why you think you can do this. But your submission must adhere to certain rules. It must be your own original, unique work with a relevant reason for the prompt and must not contain any material that might be considered unlawful in any jurisdiction code.

You cannot use the prompt to advertise about your brand or talk about brands that are in competition with the sponsored ones. Up to four submissions regardless of the way of entry are allowed. You will be asked to show proof of being an authorized account holder. And no, they are not letting just everyone in.

Eligibility Criteria

If you’re 18 years of age or older and own a smartphone, you are eligible to apply for this. You need to be using your smartphone on a daily basis. If you have work or any other commitments that require a smartphone and you cannot afford to let them go then you cannot qualify for this.

You will be required to follow the rules binding by the contract which you will have to agree to before starting the competition.

When does it start

The Contest begins on December 11, 2018, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”), ends on January 8, 2019, at 11:59 p.m., so you don’t really have a lot of time. If you’re interested, do not be late.

If you win

On or around January 22, 2019, if you have won, you will be contacted by @vitaminwater on either  Instagram or Twitter. You will be asked to follow the instructions in five days and where you will have to fill your basic information like your name and mailing address.

The Prize

Yes, you will receive the $100000 dollars if you win. The money is all yours. Maybe you can finally buy a house or seven hundred ice cream cones, or now that you have proven Vitamin Water wrong and seen the beautiful life that is without a smartphone you could go an buy the latest one. Our smartphones are our babies so we won’t really tell you to live without them. If you break after six months, you might be able to get 10000 dollars.

Is this contest really a good idea?

This is a debatable topic. Yes, a life where you don’t have to glue your eyes to your phone constantly is healthy, and it may improve your relationships with the people around you. But at this time and age, we are very dependent on our phones. If you’re a student, your phone is your notebook , and your relief pill. Your phone is your GPS. Yes, your relationship with the people around you is improving but what about the rest of the people with whom your phone is your only mode of communication? Vitamin Water believes that people CAN’T leave their phones which is why it set the contest and they have good enough reasons to believe in what it does.

Can you leave your phone for 365 days? If you can, you must be a unique soul because our phones are the closest thing to our hearts  😀
