This year, make Mom Flip

By Mir
April 28, 2008

Flip Ultra VideoIt’s nearly Mother’s Day, folks. Mama wants a camcorder that fits in her purse.

You can buy the Flip Ultra Series 60-minute Camcorder from Amazon right now for $139.99, which—trust me—is a pretty great price for this tiny little powerhouse, but why would you do that when you could win one from me, instead?

Because you can. Win one, that is. I’m giving away a Flip to one lucky Want Not reader this week. Then you can give it to your mother or keep it for yourself if you’re a mother, or just do whatever you want with it regardless of your parenting status because, dude, it’ll be all yours.

Check out the Official Flip Site for more info, as well as this great blog entry comparing the Flip to a much fancier camcorder (hint: sometimes spending more money doesn’t make sense). And then come enter for your chance to win what is possibly the coolest prize I’ve ever given away here.

For your shot at winning the Flip Video Ultra (60-minute model) which I have sitting right here on my desk, leave a comment on this entry before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30th, 2008. One comment per person, please! Winner to be determined by random drawing and the pitch of my husband’s wails as he protests that it’s not fair that I’m giving away a 60-minute Flip when the one we own is but a 30-minute Flip. (Okay, I may have to take time out from selecting the winner to play my teeny, tiny violin for him. Just sayin’.)



  1. I am flipping for this contest!
    Thanks Mir– keep up the good work

  2. Wow! That would be very cool!


  4. I’ve been researching this camcorder and lusting after it for a month now! What a fantastic giveaway. Pick me! Pick me! 🙂

  5. You are so pretty! We have no video of our twins — one of those things we should have for posterity, methinks.

  6. Ooooh, I have been asking for one of these!!

  7. Count me in… this mamma would love it, my daughter turns 2 on Mothers day this year! So a doubly blessed day!

  8. I’ve always wanted one of these. Great contest!

  9. my bff has one of these and loves it! i would love to be twinnies. please please please pick me!!

  10. What are the chances the random number generator will pick a super low number? Here’s hoping!

  12. Awesome! Pick me, oh pretty random number generator!

  13. This is too cool!

  14. wow! dh would flip for this!

  25. OH OH OH I want one of these soooooo bad. You are so sweet to offer up something so wonderful.

  26. Great giveaway. I really would turn this over to my mom, reluctantly. We were talking about getting her a camera and bringing her into this century for Mother’s Day.

  28. Wow…this would be awesome to have….crossing my fingers and toes that I get picked!!!!!

  84. You have the coolest giveaways! Keep ’em coming Mir!

  85. I so, so, so want a camcorder…If I wait until Wednesday, think the Amazon deal will still be on?

  87. Would love to have the camera! I have a 2 year old that I need to film!

  88. Yes. Please!

  89. Oh, how cool! I’ve been using the video-capture feature on my 2-year-old’s camera. 🙂

  92. Sweet! This would be awesome!

  93. Thanks for the great give-away!

  94. Yay! I would love it.

  95. I’d love to take that off your hands for you!!

  96. I would love to win this! With four children and our old camcorder breaking down when child number 3 was four….I need to take some video of the littlest so she won’t need therapy when she’s older!

  104. lovely mir, pick me, pick me, pick me and not just because i think you’re pretty but because i am BEYOND desperate for an idea for my m-i-l. thanks for all the great contests and tips…

  105. Wow — you promised a biggee, and you delivered! This would be so awesome, with my nearly three year old I shudder at how many things we’ve missed on tape (so darn pricey…) so this would be, well, a poifect Mother’s Day gift for moi and my little family.

    Why I’m going on like this I haven’t a clue. It’s all up to your randomizer, and thus far, it hasn’t randomly found me in many of your past contests.

    Hello there pretty randomizer. You’re soooooo pretty in your randomness. So, so pretty.

  106. I am desperate to get one of these.

  107. Enter me! VERY COOL!

  108. That would be sooo cool!

  109. So cool! This would be great timing as t-ball season is just beginning. Thanks pretty Mir!

  110. Just in case it makes a difference to the randomizer….You are very pretty!!!

  111. 60 minutes! Yahoo!

  112. me please!!

  113. this is me begging……

    finally, my kids might actually get videotaped!

  114. Lucky 113!

  115. I love that it would fit in my purse!!!

  116. I would love this!

  117. I would totally keep it for myself. But that’s okay, right, since I’m a Mom?? Thanks, Mir!

  118. I love how small it is. I would love to give it to my mom so she can record her grandkids!!

  119. Oh, pretty Mir….I would be eternally grateful if you select me to win this. I promise to take lots of quality, embarassing family videos with it.

  120. totally cool.

  121. Me! Please!

  122. WOW! That would be really cool! I have never heard of that before. WE still have the 8 mm camera. I was just thinking yesterday at my daughter’s dance recital how out of date we are. 🙂

  123. I FLIP for Mir and WantNot! What a great opportunity. Thanks!!

  124. You are super pretty. That camera would definitely come in handy with a 19 month old in the house.

  125. mememememememe…please pick me 🙂 Or not, I’ll still keep reading 🙂

  126. I really want one of those!

  127. Oh girl – that looks too cool. Thanks for the opportunity and have a great week.

  132. Heh, poor Otto. That would be awesome. 🙂

  133. Please enter me…. thanks!

  134. Reduce my son’s future therapy costs by picking me! We have no video of him, only my older daughter because our camera is laaame.

  135. OMG This would be a dream come true!! Please please pretty Mir and beautiful number generator PICK ME!!

  136. Neato, o pretty one!

  137. pick me! pick me!!

  138. Wow, totally cool prize, pretty pretty Mir! I’d even be happy with the 30 minute Flip.

  139. How neat! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  140. I don’t use my current camcorder because it is such a pain to upload the video to my computer. I would love to have something this simple!

  141. You keep outdoing yourself! What a fantastic Mother’s Day present this would make for my mom.

  142. WOW- My Mom would love one of these!
    Hope I get a lucky number for the randomizer!

  143. Oh, wow! My mom’s a first-time grandma, and we just moved her grandbaby all the way across the country with us. She’d be so excited if we could use this to make fun baby movies for her!

  144. Oh, Mir … Have I mentioned how pretty and brilliant you are?

    I’ve been wanting a nice recorder for, oh, about forever. ^_^

    And you’re so TOTALLY pretty and wonderful.

  294. Wow that is cool!

  295. A Flip would be an awesome way to celebrate the awesomeness of my favorite mother – me!

  296. I’ve heard great things about the Flip – we desperately need a camcorder to catch all the adorable things our 18-month old does (and some of the non-adorable things, so we can look back and laugh).

  297. very nice!

  298. Wow, Mir! This is the best contest evah! Count me in on the ones that have been drooling over these for a while. Crossing my fingers!!!

  299. I would love to have this camcorder! It just so happens that my birthday falls on Mother’s Day this year!

  300. Very, very cool.

  301. Oooh, I’ve had my eye on this for quite awhile now. I hope I win, although I never win anything. Sigh. You never know, though!

  302. It would be useful, on the off chance I catch one of my boys actually behaving. (I suppose it is possible in theory.) (Maybe.)

  303. Your contests rock, Mir! Happy Early Mother’s Day!

  304. It doesn’t hurt to try, right?

  305. me me me! What a great contest!

  313. You mean I don’t have to pack an extra bag to take my camcorder along? And it doesn’t use a tape?

  314. Very cute, Flippy!

  315. Oooh! I really want that. My 2 year old is not quite as well-documented as he could be!

  316. Awesome! You’re gorgeous!

  317. Perhaps it’s his punishment for mocking you for emailing (via email!) during that gymnastics event. Nyah!!

  319. very cool prize! 🙂

  320. Pick me!! Pick me!!!

  321. very cool, thanks! 🙂

  322. My mother would not know what to do with it and probably think it was a cigarette lighter. I think a Mother’s Day gift to myself is in order. PICKME!

  323. Oh Mir, you just get prettier every time I log on!! This would be awesome for filming the Drama Summer Camp final performance!! Also, I think capturing the Drama Queen at home in her natural environment now will produce some great quality blackmail footage I can save for later!

  324. Me! Pick me!

  325. Ooh, I love it! I need it! I want it! Pick me! Please!

  326. Wow! This would make the perfect gift for…ME!
