You know what’s awesome? Free money to buy Cubs stuff. You know where they sell Cubs stuff? On MLB.com’s store (Cubs stuff here).
So, if I offered you a $50 gift certificate to MLB.com, that would be, definitionally, awesome.
Prepared to be awesome’d.
Bleacher Nation, in partnership with unseat.me, is giving away a $50 gift card to MLB.com. Entering the contest is easy, and winning is within your own control. This is not a random draw type of thing.
(3) Get your friends to “Like” the link to your page.
That’s it. The unseat.me page with the most “Likes” at the end of the season (September 28) will win! We will contact you through the contact info you include while setting up your unseat.me account to hook you up with the FREE $50 MLB.com gift card. If there’s a tie, the person among those tied who got his/her link up first will win.
Well, in short, unseat.me adds a social layer onto your ticket sharing/buying/selling needs. Ever had Cubs tickets you couldn’t use? Ever scrambled to try and find someone to take them off your hands (like, say, in any of the past few months when the Cubs have been terrible)?
unseat.me helps offer as many ways as possible for season ticket holders to go to their friends, families, and colleagues first when they’ve got tickets to be used. unseat.me allows you to share your tickets on Facebook and Twitter right from the listing. It’s simple, and it’s smart.
Even if you weren’t signing up just for this contest, you’d probably want to go ahead and sign up. I just did (unseat.me/BleacherNation). It took me about 10 seconds. From there, I can start listing tickets, and I can share my unseat.me info around the web.
The contest starts now, and ends on Wednesday, September 28 at 11 P.M. EST. Any submissions after that time will not be eligible to win. So get on it.
