Just two weeks ago, Bergdorf Goodman convinced us to “Like” them on Facebook and sign up for their e-newsletter in hopes of winning a Facebook giveaway of a Fendi bag worth $2,150. Today, Barneys announced via Twitter that they are giving away a $1,000 gift card — and to win, you have to follow @BarneysNY on Twitter, and Tweet the answer to this question, “If you were a shoe, what type would you be?”
A panel of Barneys New York judges will select the winner. Entries have been popping up rapidly: One, “I would be Mary Jane high heels because I’m sweet and classic, but at the same time I’m not afraid to extend beyond my niche;” another, “Orange patent leather Louboutin, you’d always see me coming & my step would bewitch them all.” The contest runs until May 11th and the winner will be notified (via Twitter, of course) on May 23rd.
As of this moment, Barneys is approaching 60,000 Twitter followers. If this contest is a success, we expect to see that number skyrocket. We’ll be watching their feed–and their new blog, The Window–to see how the contest turns out.
