Hello BitFenix Fans!

Our first ever Rate Us and Win Contest is over, and what a response! We had people from all over the world writing in and sharing their experiences with us.

Well, why stop here? :)

So, we’re going to keep this contest going, and every two weeks, pick a new winner!

Here’s what you have to do to participate:

  1. Post a review of your BitFenix product online. You can post this review on the store website where you purchased the product or on an online forum of your choosing. It can also be a video review!
  2. Send us a scan of your purchase receipt for your BitFenix product.
  3. Send us a screenshot of your review.
  4. Send us the link to your review.
  5. Tell us which country you purchased your BitFenix product in.

Once you have your submission ready, send us an email:

opinion@bitfenix.com

And that’s it! At the end of the contest, our panel of judges will choose the very best review, and the winner will receive BitFenix products equal to the value of their purchase!

Remember, it doesn’t matter when you purchased your BitFenix product. Just tell us your honest feedback by posting a review online and you could walk away with a bunch of BitFenix gear! It’s just one more way we are saying thank you to everyone for supporting BitFenix.

Here’s how the reviews will be judged:

  • Detail (just how much detail did the review include?)
  • Style (is the review well written/shot?)
  • Accuracy (did the review get the facts right?)

Notice we aren’t judging based on if the review is positive or negative. We want your honest feedback and we’re going to go out of our way to get it. ;)

Full contest details can be found below.

Good luck to all and looking forward to reading your reviews!
