Win With Vamers: Winners Wednesday

‘Winners Wednesday’ was officially launched on 24 August 2011.

Winners Wednesday is our way of offering awesomely cool geek swag to our loyal fans as a thank you for helping us grow. Think of it as a random prize giving for simply being a part of our Vamers community.

Each Winners Wednesday will take place at random. The only way to find out if a normal hump day is, in fact, a Winners Wednesday will be by following our Twitter and Facebook page.

All Winners Wednesday giveaways are contained in this post, from newest to oldest.

Let the giveaway’s begin!
