Sk8 Neff or Die!

NEFF Contest


Buy any NEFF product, get free money!

Purchase any of NEFF's dope products between May 24, 2010 and June 23, 2010 and you could win a $250 shopping spree courtesy of your friends at NEFF! Sound good? I thought so!

If you choose to opt out of purchasing a NEFF product, you still have a chance to win a shopping spree. Just send us at least eight lines showing off your emcee skills and you could win an autographed Snoop Dogg signature NEFF hat PLUS the $250 shopping spree!

Here are the rules, fools:

Purchase any NEFF product between A May 24, 2010 and June 23, 2010 and be submitted to a random drawing for a $250 shopping spree at Karmaloop.com;

Show NEFF and the one and only Snoop Dogg some love with at least eight lines incorporating NEFF into the rhyme, and Snoop himself will pick his favorite to win the autographed hat - not to mention that you creative cats have a better chance at winning the $250! Submit it here.

No duplicate submissions! They will be deleted and you will be disqualified, subject to wet-willies, and teased all over the internet.

Please make sure to fill out accurate name and contact information when placing your order! This is how we will contact the winners!

Good luck!
