March Contest - Win A Portable Basketball Hoop!

It's March and there's "madness" everywhere!  Call us crazy if you want, but since there's a big basketball tournament in March, this month we've decided to give away - yes, you guessed it -  a Lifetime Portable Basketball Hoop!

This Lifetime portable basketball hoop features a 50" shatter-proof backboard with a Slam-It® rim and a 35-gallon base.  With the Speed Shift® height adjustment feature, you can easily adjust this hoop from 8'-10' with just one hand so players of all ages and levels can enjoy playing!  Backed by a 5-year limited warranty, the entire system is constructed of weather-resistant materials including powder-coated, rust-resistant steel and UV-protected graphics.  Retail value is $240.

This month's contest is going to be fun.  Grab the kids because this is one the whole family can enjoy!  Since today is St. Patty's Day, we've hidden shamrocks all over our website that reveal a hidden message…Lifetime's version of a pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow!

How to enter:

1. Visit and find the 5 shamrocks hidden on various pages throughout the site that look like this ♣ ♣.
2. Each shamrock has a letter or number beside it.  Unscramble the letters and numbers from all of the shamrocks to spell a secret message.
3. Send an e-mail to with your full name and tell us what the secret message says.

Bonus Entry:
For an extra entry, follow us on Twitter (@Lifetime365) and retweet "I just entered the #LifetimeMarContest to win a Portable Basketball Hoop from @Lifetime365"

The contest begins Wednesday, March 17 at 12:01AM MST and will end Tuesday, March 23 at 12:00 Midnight MST.  We'll announce one random winner on Wednesday, March 24, 2010.  (Entries are limited to one entry per email address. Click here for complete contest rules.)

Psssst.  Need some hints to help find those pesky shamrocks?  Become our fan on Facebook  and follow us on Twitter because we'll be announcing one hint each day to our fans and followers!  First hint: once you've figured out the secret message, you can use it as a discount code at good for a savings worth the amount revealed in the secret message on any purchase over $20.  (Discount valid March 17-March 28.)

May the luck O' the Irish be with you!
