Protect your new Android in style with our Cruzerlite $10 Giftcard Giveaway

Merry Christmas, Phandroids! Hopefully you were good this year and Santa brought you everything you asked for. Those of you that were really good, you may have even received a shiny new Android device under your tree. Chances are, you’re going to want to keep it shiny and blemish-free, and there’s no better way to do that than with a protective case. Good thing Cruzerlite is here to make sure your device is protected in style and it doesn’t matter if yours is a Christmas newborn, or if it has a few months under its belt.

With so many Android options out there, it wouldn’t be much of a giveaway if we committed to a single device. Thankfully, Cruzerlite was nice enough to accommodate, giving us 10 coupon codes to giveaway to our readers for use on whichever case they’d like. Nexus 4? You’re covered. Galaxy S3? You’re good too. Two-handed Galaxy Note 2? Come on down.

To enter, it’s easy. Simply leave us a comment down below with how you and your family spent the holidays and we’ll pick 10 random participants sending them a coupon code for $10-off the Cruzerlite case of their choice from their Amazon storefront (it’s essentially like a $10 giftcard). Just make sure your Disqus account is registered with some kind of email address (so that we can easily contact you). Contest cuts off at 12AM PT tonight. Merry Christmas everyone and have a fantastic rest of your holiday! Here’s to many more.

    My mom decided she didn’t want us to cook, so she told us kids that we all have to make something. We didn’t really think and we ended up making enough of our food for a whole meal. So, we had 4 full meals and 2 full size desserts. I feel like I am going to die. Eggrolls, Lamb & Hamburgers. Tacos. Lasagna Soup. Oreo cake. Chocolate cookie bars. God. Kill me.

  • Robert Murphy

    Good food and a movie marathon on USA network. More Indiana Jones than I can stand.

    • Fred Marshall

      Is it even possible to have too much Indiana Jones? Well, maybe if they showed Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls…excuse me while I go throw up in my mouth a little cause that movie sucked!

  • Mo

    Xmas was a blast!!! I picked up all of my kids from their moms the night before. We woke up bright and early at 6am, opened gifts. Played video games then I cooked a huge Xmas dinner. Ribs.

  • Robert Manser

    I SPENT IT ALONE, MY FAMILY DOESN’T LOVE ME ANYMORE. SO I GUESS I CAN’T ENTER THIS THEN. I USE TO DO ALL THE FAMILY THINGS TILL I REALIZED THAT EVERYONE WOULD BUY EACH OTHER STUFF AND I WOULD BUY STUFF BUT NEVER GOT ANYTHING IN RETURN. AND I WOULD SIT THERE FOR HOURS WHILE NO ONE WOULD SAY A WORD TO ME. AND WHEN MY KIDS BIRTHDAYS COME UP NO ONE COMES TO THEIR PARTIES, SO I’M DONE WITH THEM. BECAUSE I HAVE A CRAPPY JOB NO ONE THINKS I’M WORTH ANYTHING. AND WHAT’S THE POINT IN ACKNOWLEDGING I’M HERE.

        This is what they think, they’ll pull that nice thing over Facebook, but the minute you go anywhere they are, this is what I hear. Oh you still working at that factory, oh still driving that car. I thought you were going to find a better job. And that’s it, no one will speak another word to me other then Bye!! I guess they think because I work at a factory im an idiot. They won’t come to any of my kids thing’s. And I have not done anything to any of them Ever!!!

    lots of turkey and extended family. New Nex 7 waiting under the tree!!!

  • meetloaf13

    Made a lot of memories this Christmas. The best was probably my 5 yr old daughter asking if she could set up a hot chocolate stand to raise money for a family we were trying to help for Christmas. She did it, in 20F weather no less. Pretty inspiring what these young children think about. We have a lot to learn from our children. Something none of us will ever forget.

    On a less important “note”…my 2-handed device could use a little protection =)

  • DP

    Luckily my grandpa came up from Arkansas to Connecticut to spend the holidays. I barely have seen him in the past few years so it’s a real treat that he’s here. We’ve been eating a lot, going to the city, eating more, going to restaurants. It’s been great so far

    Well, I recently got laid off and lost my home. So my wife and two little girls had to go stay with her parents in another state while I searched for a new home. I managed to find a new place and my family was able to make it back on Christmas Eve. So Christmas Day was spent with the three of the them. I didn’t get any gifts but it was the greatest Christmas I ever had just being able to be back with my wife and little girls!! I hope all the staff and readers of Phandroid had a Merry Christmas.

  • Dandano
