CrackBerry Kevin's Lost Luggage Karma Contest Winners Announcement!

Flying home from our Toronto BlackBerry 10 Launch Campaign Headquarters, one of my five bags of checked luggage went missing. I assumed it was gone forever. Three days later it came to back to me in perfect condition, everything in place. To keep the travel gods happy and my karma in check, I decided to give away three pieces of my returned luggage to lucky CrackBerry readers!

CrackBerry Kevin's Karma Contest Winners!
By Kevin Michaluk on 9 Mar 2013 07:08 pm EST

Ok CrackBerry Nation, here is the long-awaited winners announcement in my Karma Contest. Almost 2500 people entered to win items from my luggage that went missing but three days later was returned to me. I was lucky, and now three CrackBerry members are too!

The contest ended February 24th, but things were so busy with the CrackBerry re-launch that I didn't have time to slow down for a moment and get this done. With things coming into rhythm again on that front, today is the first chance I have had to catch my breath and get this done. I appreciate the patience!

I used our contest winner picker system to select three names at random from all of the entries received. From there, the three lucky winners have won and will receive the items they requested via the comment they left to the Karma post (luckily, all of the winners chosen ended up wanting different things).

The three prizes won ended up being pretty sweet -  a BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105, a pack of awesome BlackBerry and CrackBerry stickers, and a BlackBerry PlayBook.

As for who won... drum roll please......

  • BlackBerry Pearl 9105 - Jessica Narwold
  • BlackBerry Sticker pack - HofstraJet
  • BlackBerry PlayBook - Kenteeet

Huge congrats go to all the winners. You'll be receiving an email from CrackBerry requesting your shipping info. If you can reply quick that would be awesome as I have to head to UPS on Monday to ship some other things and want to get this all sent out! 

Thanks again to everybody who entered! May good Karma be with you all!!

I want the stickers. Just one so my OtterBox doesn't hide the fact that it's a BlackBerry so much.

Congratulations to all the winners! :)


Haha wow... A pearl? Stickers? Kinda surprised

Kevin Michaluk

That's it. One way or another I'm going to figure out how to get Sparks and BlackBerry and CrackBerry stickers in the hands of BlackBerry fans around the world.

It's crazy awesome how people flip out when they see a BlackBerry or CrackBerry sticker. I declare 2013 the year of the sticker. Stay tuned!


Tell me about it! It's all over my truck. ; )

Just can't wait to have the Z10 to go with it.

Thanks again Kevin.


Kevin, sticker buyer here. Put them in the store! I "need " a good quality spark for the car window. And the BB logo would be cool as well. Cheers!


Congratulations to all the winners. Well done, you deserve to be spoilt early before the Easter bunny grabs your goodies


Congrats to the winners!!!

Would definitely love to see some BlackBerry, Spark AND CrackBerry stickers in the CB Store!


This was a really cool contest.


Congrats to the winners, and thanks fearless leader Kevin for being such a cool karma dude. :)


Congratulations to all the winners. :)


Congrats to all. But wondering where mine is haha lol... =))


Congrats to all! I will get myself a new pair of glasses. I thought the lovely little white block was the 9100. I hated the 9105.

Btw, dear Kevin, if you have a Pearl 9100 (no matter the color), I would love to buy it from you. This phone has always been my greatest wish and it is not available in France. This way, you can get some money back. The CB community is ruining your bank account.


...and it seems that I am not enough lucky to win any of your contests...


Congratulations to all winners :)

My first comment on the new CrackBerry :)

El Platanero

Did I misread tht article? You were giving everything away in the bag? I was looking to see who wom the speakers


Congrats to the lucky sons of winners. :D


Kevin great site and maybe you could get BB to include a sticker with every new phone. I did not win but still excited about this site. Keep up the good work.


I most definitely many apples are on cars these days?
More fruit stickers! I need variety!


Congrats all

Z10 is Epic


Congrats to the winners.

Jimmy Tian

Congratulations to the winners!


Congrats to all the winners! Good Karma rules. ;-)

Ion Lungu

!!!!! disappointed by the contest.
There were several items and no specification that there will be only 3 winners.


Congrats to the winners!


Congratulations to all the winners. Enjoy your prize.


Congrats...I wanted a non-BlackBerry device so I could have burned it :D


Wow, I can't believe my wife won. I've been signing up for these contests for forever and never won. She randomly decides to sign up for this one and wins. I couldn't believe it when I read her name.


Thank you so much Kevin, That is so awesome. I might have to give my wife my 16gb so we can videochat when away from home, not sure I can give away CrackBerry Kevin's playbook, either way rest assured the "Crackberry karma & travel gods" are sending it to a good loving home. Can't wait to get it, thanks again!

Jessica Narwold

Help! I'm a winner and I didn't get an email. What should I do? I'm so excited I cant contain myself! I'm going to celebrate tonight!

Jessica Narwold

I did get it. I'm so sorry I just now got to email crackberry back. I just still can't believe. I'm so excited! Thank you so much for offering this to us! Good vibes to you!
