Want a new Windows Phone? Ride Amtrak on a somewhat regular basis? Then you, my friend, have the chance to win a brand new Windows Phone from Amtrak. There’s a contest going on right now with the folks over at Amtrak that we missed covering sooner. They’ve already given out two Windows Phone devices, but there’s still a two more up for grabs. Full details below on this contest open to U.S. residents.
Take a picture of yourself at an Amtrak train station or of the landscape outside an Amtrak train. Then post that picture to Instagram using the hashtags #Amtrak and #WindowsPhone. Do that and you’re entered to win a brand new Windows Phone device. They don’t specific the exact model, but note it carries a retail value of $610, meaning this isn’t a Lumia 520.
There are four entry periods, two have passed already, but two remain. Period three takes place between 2/18/2014 and 2/24/1014, while period 4 takes place over 2/25/2014 through 3/3/2014. That means there’s still two prizes up for grabs. You also need to follow Amtrak on Instagram to win (@amtrak).
Anyone near an Amtrak station or frequent Amtrak? You better enter! Don’t forget to check out the official Amtrak app for Windows Phone that was released a few months back. You can grab that in the Windows Phone Store or by using the QR code below.
Full contest details can be found on the Amtrak blog.
