Soothe Your Sole Contest: what would it take for you to sell your soul?

One of the most fashionable footwear shops, Davids Shoes together with one of the finest spas in the county, The Stillwater Spa, have teamed up for a contest.

The prize?
You can win two awesome gift certificates – $500 towards a day at The Stillwater Spa and $500 for Davids – just in time for Mothers’ Day.

The catch?
You have to enter online and agree to receive promotional material from the contest sponsors.

Seems like a small price for the sponsors to pay to build a healthy customer database. With so much of our personal data shared these days anyway, handing over an email address and phone number may be a small price to pay in exchange for a chance to win a day at the spa, especially with such high odds.

Are you entering? What does it take to get you to share your email address and phone number with businesses?

  1. Ooooh, this one might be worth it to cough up my email and phone number!

    I am quite willing to provide my email to a retailer or anyone else for that matter. It's easy enough to manage unwanted mail, and I use an alternate email address for these types of things so I'm not bothered much.

    I am, however, less and less inclined to provide a telephone number. Mostly because email is my preferred method of contact (for everyone, including my mother) but also because I can not stand to be interrupted by a telephone call from an unscrupulous telemarketer.
