Uncle SamBenjamin Franklin said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” If Uncle Sam has just taken a bite out of your geek budget, keep reading, as today marks the start of our newest Most Active Member contest. Our previous winners are already kicking back and enjoying their prizes — and you could be our next winner.

Check out the sweet new prizes we’re offering…

1st PlaceNintendo Wii game system

To truly understand how Wii revolutionizes gaming, you have to try it for yourself. Quite simply, Wii is for everyone. The ease of use and interactivity of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk allows for a unique social gaming experience for the whole family. You don’t just play Wii, you experience it.

2nd PlaceCanon PowerShot SD100 IS 8MP Digital Camera

With 8.0-megapixel technology at its heart, PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH brings you high resolution images that maintain their sharpness and vivid impact even when they’re enlarged and cropped. The 3x Optical Zoom is a clear winner when it comes to getting up close and personal. And Canon’s invaluable Optical Image Stabilizer reduces the blur of camera movement, even in tricky low light situations.

3rd Place$100 Amazon gift certificate

Redeem your gift certificate for whatever you wish. You’ll find a huge variety of geek gear on and this shopping spree is on us.

You’ve heard it said that April showers bring May flowers? All I know is that April Knowledge Points bring May prizes.
