BookRenter’s been doing a lot of celebrating over the last month and a half.  In February we had fun with Mardi Gras and in March we said cheers to St. Patrick’s Day.  During these holidays we also asked our customers and facebook fans to participate in some fun contests.

To celebrate Mardis Gras, we asked you to create your own Tiki mask and the artist behind the best one would win a $500 party in a box.  The party box included $200 cash, $100 in Domino’s Pizza, bottlepoppers, Mardis Gras beads, a jester’s hat, and more.  The winner of this prize was Lulu He, a student over at Cal State Fullerton, who used her prize to celebrate Mardis Gras in Las Vegas with her friends for her 21st birthday.  Here’s how Lulu described her trip:

The beads definitely came in handy; my friends and I really stood out on the streets! I loved the bottlepoppers, at first I didn’t even know what they were but they are sooooo cooolll!!! We ordered pizzas with the giftcards and I tried the Domino’s pasta in a bowl, soooo fulfilling. We all couldn’t even move after eating all that. My boyfriend wore the hat the wholeee time, it’s a really nice hat. :) He looked silly though. I spent the cash on the hotel room. Overall it was one of the best parties I had in my life. There is only one party pooping part. I dropped my camera in the water when we were out on the busy street and my camera died. :( I wish I was more careful. Luckily, everything else went great! Thank you guys so much for everything! I loved my Mardi Gras/Birthday Party. :)

Lulu wasn’t the only winner recently.  Over 1,000 Facebook fans got lucky around St. Patrick’s Day as they entered our contest to win pint glasses, weepuls, Papa John’s gift cards, and more.  This contest had a grand prize of a 16GB iPod nano, which was awarded to Nicole DeRosa.  Nicole, a nursing student at Pierce College in Washington was excited for her iPod and couldn’t believe she won. After winning, she told friends “I was soooo surprised and excited! I never win anything.”  Nicole also got some advice from those on Facebook for how she should enjoy her prize.

Congrats to both Lulu and Nicole for being our recent winners.  We’ll be giving all of our fans chances to win some more great prizes in the near future.  Stay updated with our emails and Facebook page so you can participate in our next promotion and win some cool stuff!

Mardi Gras was Tuesday and All I got was.. $500 Party In A Box!!!!

Fat Tuesday was this week, which is one of our favorites at BookRenter. To celebrate this event, we decided to pass on a little something special to our loyal customers in the form of a contest on our Facebook page.

To take part in the contest, we asked that fans make their most creative Tiki mask using the template we provided. Easy enough right? Well, the staff at BookRenter was surprised to see so many amazing submissions, which you can see here.

The winning mask was designed by Lulu, a student at Cal State Fullerton.

After we got done fighting over who got to call her, we were bummed that she didn’t answer (though we left a voice mail). After she returned our call and screamed with joy for about 5 minutes, we were able to tell her that her “Party In A Box” was coming with:

-2 cameras
-Mardi Gras party supplies (beads, streamers, and a jester hat)
-Bottlepoppers
-$100 in Domino’s pizza
-$250 in cash
Thank you all who submitted Tiki masks, we had a blast doing this!
