When planning the first ever Technology of the Year Award, our colleagues at AOL Autos decided early on that it would be great to give away the winning technology. Since all of this tech comes attached to vehicles, that meant giving away another car!
Our friends at Translogic get to have all the fun, whether that's cruising around on battery-powered skateboards or in solar electric vehicles. Luckily, they are also people who like to share, and are currently offering readers (well, technically, people who "like" them on Facebook) the chance to ride away in a Pedego Classic Cruiser electric bike.
We're ramping up the giveaways as we race towards the end of the year, and we've got a sweet load of prizes to help make your Black Friday that much brighter. Courtesy of Magellan, we're giving away 12 of the GPS-maker's excellent Roadmate navigation systems between now and November 30th.
This month's giveaway is a Passport 9500 ix radar and laser detector courtesy of Escort. Not that you would ever break the law by going a few miles per hour over the speed limit, but if you did (by accident, of course), the Passport 9500 ix detector is your best bet for avoiding a ticket.
Lexus' annual Golden Opportunity Sales Event is in effect, and an additional bit of golden yellow to go along with it this year is the Unleash the LFA sweepstakes. The deal is simple: you log onto your Facebook page, check out the Lexus Facebook page, submit your personal details to enter the contest and then spread the link to your Facebook friends.
Remember when we announced that our sister site, AOL Autos, was giving away a Mini Countryman? That was the beginning of AOL Autos Giveaway, a new program in which the site will give away cars and auto accessories to its Facebook fans. At the same time, we at Autoblog ran our own series of sweepstakes and gave away fun stuff like a LEGO set and R/C car, and more useful swag like a battery charger and garage wall organizing system.
UPDATE: Congratulations to the winner, Steven H from Ontario, Canada!
AOL Autos, sister site to Autoblog, is giving away a Mini Countryman to readers who "Like" the AOL Autos Facebook page.
Toyota is looking to meld the smartphones with the television in a new ad campaign. The automaker is giving fans a chance to win two Camrys in new promotion that uses the Shazam mobile app in conjunction with a TV spot. When the commercial airs, viewers simply fire up Shazam and enter the giveaway. (They can also enter the sweepstakes online.) Toyota says the program is the first and largest of its kind to use Shazam.
UPDATE: A winner has been chosen! We're awaiting his/her confirmation of eligibility, after which the prize will be shipped or another winner chosen if eligibility cannot be established. Stay tuned for more giveaways in the very near future!
Because our thumbs are practically aching in anticipation of the new Gran Turismo 5 game for Playstation 3, we've been hunting high and low for ways to keep our inner-child occupied until its release. Thankfully, the folks at Polyphony Digital and Sony have teamed up to make our wait more bearable with their new limited-edition PSP/Gran Turismo bundle, and we thought it'd be nice to share this welcome bit of relief with the Autoblog faithful.
We've reached the end of our week-long marathon of Father's Day sweepstakes, and we think you'll agree, we've saved the best for last. Our final sweepstakes is for a TomTom ONE 3rd Edition portable navigation system. Valued at $199, the ONE 3rd Edition is TomTom's entry-level model but features a large 3.5-inch touchscreen, preloaded maps and 1GB of internal memory (Father's Day tie not included). You can check out full specs for the ONE 3rd Edition on TomTom's website by clicking here. And all
What's a sweepstakes on Autoblog without some Automoblox cars as prizes? Not much, so we rang Patrick Calello, the designer who dreams up these heirloom-quality toys, and he's graciously provided both a C9R sportscar ($39.99) and S9R sports sedan ($39.99) for us to give away. Unlike the last two days, both prizes will be going to one winner to help them start their collection of Automoblox cars. I have six myself, and the out-of-the-box C9R you see above is mine. The prizes for this sweepstakes,
Yesterday was Father's Day and we decided that a series of sweepstakes was in order to celebrate the modern day patriarch. We'll be hosting one sweepstakes per day this week in honor of dear old Dad, so whether you are one or just have one, we hope you enter for a chance to win some fun stuff. We're kicking off Day 1 with five prizes courtesy of Wholesalekeychain.com, which sells officially licensed keychains for nearly all of the major car brands.

The holidays have a lot to do with smells: the musty scent of the tree after it's been trimmed, the taste of turkey in your nose after it's been set on the table, and the fresh lavender smell of your tires after driving over the river and through the woods to get to Grandmother's house. That's right, the prize for Day 4 of Autoblog's Holiday Sweepstakes is a set of Ultra High Performance Kumho ECSTA DX Aroma tires. Not only does this rolling rubber offer better grip than your standard fare from
"Get some rest Pam, you look tired." I've been saying that line to my girlfriend ever since I saw The Bourne Ultimatum in the theater, and I can't wait to hear it again at home when I get the movie on DVD for Christmas. Are you afraid Santa or a disgruntled spouse won't let you watch Jason Bourne tear up the Big Apple on your flat screen this Christmas? We've got you covered. The prize for Day 2 of Autoblog's 2007 Holiday Sweepstakes is The Bourne Ultimatum DVD, and we've got 5 copies to give aw

So every day this week we'll be giving away auto-related items, starting with stocking stuffers like today's first prize: 10 1-year subscriptions to Ownersite.com valued at $24.95 apiece. For those of you who don't recall, Ownersite.com describes itself as a comprehensive web-based Vehicle Maintenance Reminder and Expense Tracking System. If you keep every receipt associated with your car in a shoe box, then you'll like Owner
