Viigo Contest Details

How does Viigo's BlackBerry contest work?
  • Viigo will announce one winner a month. For each friend you invite who downloads Viigo, your name will be entered into the draw.
  • Every month, for the duration of the contest, which is now running indefinitely, your name goes back into the draw with each successful friend invite, for another chance to win, whether you're a winner last month or not.
  • The earlier you start inviting friends to Viigo, the better your odds are at winning.
Who is eligible to enter the contest?
  • With the exception of Viigo employees, any Viigo subscriber using a BlackBerry device is eligible to participate. Other mobile devices are not included in this particular contest.
  • Since the draw is random, you can increase your odds of winning by inviting more friends to Viigo.
If I win, can I exchange the BlackBerry for cash?
Yes. Just tell us and we'll write you a cheque for $500 USD.
How do I know how many friends have successfully downloaded Viigo?
Currently, the best way is to follow up with your friends and ensure that they're using Viigo. At the moment, we do not have the means to publish your individual results. But, in the very near future we're going to launch an 'Invite a Friend' leader-board channel that you can subscribe to (directly in Viigo) and you'll be able to see how many friends you've invited to Viigo, and how you benchmark against other Viigo users.
What options do I have to invite a friend to Viigo?
Currently, the only way to get credit for the Giveaway is by using the 'Invite a Friend' feature in the Viigo application (note – in older versions of Viigo it's called 'Refer a Friend') found by clicking the BlackBerry menu button from the homescreen. In the near future there will be two other ways that you can get credit for inviting friends to Viigo: 1) from the web, accessing your contact books from popular webmail services like hotmail and gmail, etc. 2) by Word of Mouth. Stay tuned to Viigo Bulletins for more updates on these methods.
What if I verbally tell a friend to download Viigo. Will I still get entered into the draw?
No. You must invite them using the 'Invite a Friend' feature in the Viigo application.
Inviting a Friend is Easy
1. Open Viigo to the Home Screen. 2. Select the Menu button. 3. Click on 'Invite a Friend.'

Note—in older versions of Viigo, step 3 reads 'Refer a Friend'.
When and where will the winner be announced?
At the end of each month the winner will be announced in our blog, What's New in Viigo. The winner will also be contacted via e-mail to make arrangements for the delivery of his/her prize.
