The summer-long celebration of Pongo Resume's 5th anniversary is in full swing, and hundreds have already joined in the fun on our Twitter page. So far, 55 people have won Pongo t-shirts and other prizes by answering our daily trivia questions, and 300 new followers on Twitter have earned discounted Pongo memberships! The fun continues through Labor Day, September 7, 2009.
Here's what a couple of the winners Tweeted after they received their prizes:
- "I didn't realize they were giving out a prize for that trivia question. Woot!"
- "It pays to know that (the mother of) Michael Nesmith from The Monkees … invented Liquid Paper."
Want to win fun prizes and discounted service, too? Here's how:
Daily Trivia Contests
- Twice each weekday, at 10am and 2pm (ET), we'll post a trivia question on our Twitter page and give away a cool Pongo prize like a t-shirt or gadget for the first correct answer.
- If you're the first follower to answer correctly, we'll direct-message you with the prize information.
- You can play every day, but you can win only one prize per week. (Hey, we have to make it fair!)
By the way, there are more than 20 trivia questions that have gone unanswered!
Discounts for Twitter Followers
- Become a new Pongo Resume follower on Twitter and we'll direct-message you with a coupon for 15% off a new account.
- If you're already a Twitter follower, but don't currently have a Pongo account, direct-message us from our Twitter page and tell us you want the coupon, too!
