What’s better than scoring a shiny new phone? Scoring a shiny new phone for free, of course… AT&T is hitting Facebook hot and heavy these days and why wouldn’t it? After all, Facebook is where all the cool kids hang out, or so we hear, and they spend plenty of time there. Here’s a thought: Why not take a break from stalking your ex-girlfriend from high school — dude, it’s not going to happen — and actually use Facebook for something productive? You know, like winning free stuff for example. Hit the jump to learn about AT&T’s new Facebook app and for your chance to win a free Sony Ericsson W518a from your pals here at BGR.
AT&T’s new Facebook app, dubbed AT&T Share gives AT&T fans chances to win a bunch of cool stuff. Here’s how it works — simply install the AT&T Share Facebook app to gain access to the campaign. You will then embark on a series of “missions”, if you participate that is. Fulfilling them will earn you reward points toward cool stuff and chances to win a variety of prizes including phones, gadgets, VIP tickets to this year’s Warped Tour, tickets to sporting events, service credits and more. To give you an idea of what kind of missions we’re talking about here, the first one is running now through next week and simply requires you to film a video of yourself explaining what you like most about AT&T apps, games and music. Upload the video, link it in the AT&T Share Facebook app and boom, you’ve got a chance to have your video featured on AT&T’s new App Center website as a well as a chance to win an AT&T gift card or a Sony Ericsson phone.
Sure that’s simple enough, but it’s a well known and scientifically proven fact that BGR readers are better than other people. Since AT&T is well aware of this, it was more than happy to throw in a little something extra for you guys. Of course you should still hit the AT&T Share app for chances to win a bunch of great stuff but we’re giving away a shiny new Sony Ericsson W518a of our own and only BGR readers can win. Here’s how it works:
- Head over to Facebook and check out the AT&T Share app.
- Leave a comment below and let us know what you think. That’s it! Just leave a comment and you’re entered for a chance to win.
- If you don’t use Facebook, don’t worry — you still have a chance to win the W518a. Just leave a comment below explaining why you still haven’t signed up for Facebook and you’re in.
- Please enter once and only once. Leave more than one comment and you’ll be disqualified.
