Unclutterer giving away four Fujitsu ScanSnaps in April

I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this news with you. In April, thanks to the amazing generosity of the Fujitsu company, Unclutterer will be giving away FOUR ScanSnap S1300 scanners to our readers.

April 22 this year marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and we wanted to do something big to commemorate the event. We’ve teamed up with Fujitsu to help our readers cut back on paper waste, digitize clutter, and better organize work/home offices. We will give away one ScanSnap S1300 scanner on April 1, April 8, April 15, and April 22 (four scanners total) to celebrate.

The prizes: The ScanSnap S1300 is the latest multi-page color scanner from Fujitsu. It is compatible with both PCs and Macs, scans both sides of the page, has optical character recognition, can transform any document into a Word file with just a click of a button, is able to scan a document up to 34 inches long and as small as 2″ x 2″, and is even Energy Star compliant. My description of this awesome machine doesn’t do it justice, so please check out the full product details.

How to enter to win: Entering to win is simple. All you need to do is follow us on Twitter. If you aren’t already on Twitter, create an account and then follow us @Unclutterer.

Each Thursday of the giveaway at 10:00 a.m. EDT, I will enter the number of our Twitter followers into the Random Integer Generator at random.org and select that day’s one winner. You only need to follow us once (and please, only once), to participate in the giveaway. If you already follow us on Twitter, then you are already participating and need not do anything more. Winners of the giveaway will have 24 hours to respond to a direct message from @Unclutterer to claim their new scanner. Failure to respond within 24 hours will disqualify you from the giveaway.

While you’re following @Unclutterer, consider also following Fujitsu @ScanSnapIT for scanning tips and news. I know that some of you aren’t interested in social media and will complain about having to sign up for Twitter to participate in the giveaway — however, this is the easiest way for us to manage the giveaway and it insures that many of our readers are already entered to win with no additional effort on their part. Also, if you’re an avid Wired magazine reader, you know that social networking sites can help increase worker productivity if used efficiently. If you still wish to complain, well, please don’t because you can always cancel your account after the contest has ended. This is simply the easiest way for us to conduct the giveaway.

I am so exited about this April event and cannot wait to give away FOUR Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 scanners. Remember, you have until 10:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 1, to follow us on Twitter for the first scanner giveaway. Good luck, and again a special thanks to Fujitsu for their amazing generosity!

    Yea!!! I’ve lusted after the ScanSnap for so long but haven’t been able to afford one with our current budget. I’m already following you on Twitter so I can’t wait for the giveaways!

    Another plea from an overseas follower – do we qualify for the competition?

    To those overseas … we have no problem with you entering, but the units are all made with US-standard 110 volts electrical plugs.

    AH MAH GAHD! I want one! I want one so much! And I already have one, but I love it so insanely much that I want a NEW one. Eeeeeee, this is too much excitement for a Monday morning.

    I’m so excited! I’ve been looking into getting one. This would streamline my home based jewelry business. We get so many handouts at our trainings and this would cut down on so much paper clutter and allow me to share documents electronically AND be able to edit! Yay! I hope I win. Go Unclutter and Fugitsu!

    Just started following the Twitter account and have a question: Is there anything worth reading on it, or is it a just a link dump?

    Mark — Our RSS feed does go out on the Twitter account. Often times, there are also items that come to our attention that don’t warrant a full post that we’ll share over Twitter. For example, there is a huge sale going on at Container Store right now that we have on the schedule to tweet. There is also a Lifehacker link that caught my attention, but isn’t really worthy of writing an entire Unclutterer post about but certainly good for a tweet.

    I have been trying to save the money to buy one of these for months for my (eventual) job as a script supervisor because it’s an absolute requirement, but I couldn’t quite get the cash together since I’m still in school.

    This contest is perfect. *crosses fingers*

    Wah. I don’t want to sign up for Twitter. I’m trying to unclutter *all* areas of my life, and that includes the technology/info overload area. Since I’m on the web, I don’t want to expand into other areas too.

    So, here’s a plea from those of us who want a life uncluttered of Twitter — can we enter by posting here on the blog? Pretty please? ;-)

    @Stacia — When we worked out the agreement with Fujitsu, it was to do it over Twitter. We do not have permission to give the units away on the blog. Additionally, we love Twitter and find that it is a wonderful way to reach even more people about simple living. Some people like to read books, others enjoy attending lectures, and there are those who appreciate receiving content about simple living in fewer than 140 characters.
