Is Something You May Know Worth a $50 B&N Giftcard?–CLOSED

I’ve had to forego my customary Music Monday blog segment for today, but it’s for a good cause.

I want to allow you great readers the chance to not only win a $50 giftcard to Barnes & Noble, but also to have a chance of  participating in the Something You May Know trivia game show, sponsored by some of my buddies in Savannah, GA.

Here are a few highlights about Something You May Know:

Something You May Know Gameshow

SYMK is the Internet’s only live trivia game show where anyone who signs into our chat room via Facebook or Twitter is a contestant. Every episode of SYMK centers around one topic. Past shows included The National Anthem and The FBI’s Most wanted list. For the first part of the show, we blast you with cool facts about that subject, information you probably have never heard before. Then the game starts. Be the first person to answer the topical questions and win up to $300. Our first question is worth 25 dollars the second question is worth 75 dollars and the final question is worth 100 dollars. The winner of the 100 dollar prize gets to choose another person playing in the chat room to receive a bonus 100 dollar courtesy of SYMK.

So what does this have to do with you, you ask? If you want to win the amazing $50 Barnes & Noble giftcard, you have to follow a couple of easy steps. I’ve mentioned before how Rafflecopter makes me cringe, but sometimes it is a necessary evil. Plus, my Rafflecopter giveaway doesn’t include 50 steps to get the prize. All I need is for you to like two Facebook pages, watch a brief video to get the clue for the game, comment about it, and tweet about it once to your friends. It’s that easy.

Here’s the video of the clue before I do the Rafflecopter. Watch carefully:

In this brief video is Clue #2 for Something you May know.  Watching the clip fulfills one step towards entering this easy giveaway. 


Now that you’ve seen the clip, are you ready to enter the giveaway?

See, that wasn’t so painful now, was it? If everything goes well with this promotion, I’ll be sponsoring a clue for Something You May Know on a bi-weekly basis. I love trivia, so I’ll enjoy it just as much as you. Winner will be announced on Thursday on my blog and via email. Happy playing, everyone!

    OMG a real giveaway. I’m going to do it later when I get home ;) Hope I win something.

    • Amberr Meadows

      Christina, at least the $50 giftcard, and you’ve already done almost everything for this raffle anyway previously. 

  • Susan Silver

    HA, i tried to win a game show in vegas. They have name that tune. My friend thought I was going to win, but I was eliminated pretty quickly. They ask a lot of really truly obscure things, and there is a strategy to some of the early rounds for sure. 

    • Amberr Meadows

      Oh, wow, Susan, it always seems easier when someone else is doing it, doesn’t it?

  • Chelbush

    I actually won SYMK the very first week I played! Love it!!

    We had a company-wide trivia contest set up just like a game show.  I actually got to go stand up in front of everyone at my own contestant stand and buzz in and all.  It was so much fun and I won!  $200, I got my picture taken with a giant check.  For weeks, my coworkers quizzed me with trivia questions as I passed them in the hall :)

    • Somethingyoumayknow

      You should totally get them to play to tonight! Good luck!

  • Deadacoustics

    I love this show, I played last season and won.. Never won anything before this but all those years of watching jeopardy paid off!!

    • Amberr Meadows

      Dead, Jeopardy is good for something, eh?
