Congrats to Our First Hyundai ‘Snap Out’ Winner!


A big congrats to the first winner in our Hyundai Elantra’s “Snap Out” Sweepstakes! Metropolite JennaCarol was the first person to figure out that our Five Cutting-Edge Watches post was the hidden one with the out of place photo. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the last picture in that post was upside down and, in fact, the image was of the prize she ultimately won. (Hint hint.)

Thanks to Hyundai Elantra, she wins the WeWood CRONO Black Natural Wood Watch! (Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $119.)

There are THREE more prizes we’ll be giving out from now till March 27, 2011. Here they are:
– 13″ Hardback Leather Case for the MacBook Pro. ARV: $80.
– Pratt LED Table Lamp. ARV: $129.
– Harman Kardon SoundSticks II, Plug and Play Multimedia Speaker System. ARV: $125.

Here’s how to win (again):
If you notice an illustration of the Hyundai Elantra next to the My Modern Met logo at the top of this site, look for a “hidden” blog post. It will feature a picture that does not fit with the others. Post your comment to that post by saying something like: “I Win!” The first person who comments wins!

Also, if you’re not the first person, comment anyways. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified, we’ll award the applicable prize to an alternate winner.
