Microsoft's CES 2012 trip giveaway entry ends tonight

Want to go to the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show next month in Las Vegas but don't want to spend any money on flight and hotels? If so, you might want to hurry and enter the Facebook contest that Microsoft is currently running that will give one person and a friend a chance to attend CES 2012. The deadline to enter the contest ends tonight at midnight Pacific Time (that's 3 am Eastern time).

The contest is only open to residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the US and you have to be 21 years of age and older to enter. If you win, you and a buddy will be flown to Las Vegas for a five day, four night trip. The both of you will be staying at the Palazzo Las Vegas Hotel. You will also get a Canon PowerShot SX150 digital camera with a 16 GB memory card in order to chronicle your trip. There's also a $500 travel allowance given to the winner; we would recommend not using it on the slots.

In addition to passes to attend CES 2012 itself, your and your friend will also get passes to check out Microsoft's CES 2012 keynote address on January 9. That means you will be there live when Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will be making a lot of major Microsoft announcements including perhaps some more new demos of Windows 8.

Why the **** in the app do they allow you to select a country when it is only open to US? Allow to select a state....

Ugh, stupid Facebook. I hate it, and I refuse to make one to enter a contest. Why can't they just make it like most websites do, online form submission. >:-(

It could be worse. It could be one of those "Like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, sign up for our email newsletter" horrors.
