The big Phones Show weekly giveaway

The show (video and audio podcasts) is produced on a shoestring budget and needs your help! If you're enjoying it both the shows then please consider helping out by joining what I call my monthly 'virtual pint of beer' club - i.e. if you met me in the street, would you at least buy me a beer to say "thank you"? (3 pounds a month was roughly the price of a pint here in the UK a year or two ago).

Mind you, please donate because you think the work I/we put in is worth it. And not because of the giveaways, which are simply a way of doling out ex-review hardware to a good home! Winners are people drawn at random on The Phones Show Chat podcast every week until further notice...

I have a choice of accessories (listed below) to give away to a lucky monthly 'virtual pint of beer' donator or an ad-hoc donator (auto-added in from donations in the previous month - in other words, you don't have to sign up to a recurring 'monthly' donation in order to be in the draw), chosen at random every week until further notice on the Phones Show Chat.

The winner, each week, will be notified by email and can choose any two items** from the list below, posted free worldwide*:

* there are a few countries where there might be issues with some items in terms of customs, plus for the really heavy 'power banks' I might ask for you to cover postage to far off regions....(!)

** the offer to send out two prizes every week is for June 2016! And then we'll see how it goes from here!
