Let's start a little contest: how many bloggers do you think will do it? 20? 30? 50?
I won't be one of them. Well, other than showing you the pitch -- here it is, names and contact info redacted:
Seeking a faster, easier way to pick out your next favorite mobile tech gadget? And looking to learn all about it?
We’d like to invite you to come see how we’re making technology work for you. At Best Buy, customer comes first and convenience is our goal… so much so that we’re creating a whole new shopping experience with you in mind!
My name is XXXXXX, and I’m reaching out on behalf of Best Buy to invite you to discover the new shopping experience being launched this Saturday, October 13 at the following locations:
• Eden Prairie 11600 Leona Road Eden Prairie, MN 55344
• Maplewood 1795 County Road D East Maplewood, MN 55109
• Coon Rapids 12633 Riverdale Blvd NW Coon Rapids, MN 55448
• Eagan 1235 Town Centre Drive Eagan, MN 55123
By visiting the store this weekend, you’ll have an opportunity to see the new store layout first-hand, which you can then share with your readers. A few upgrades you’ll notice with the new layout include:
• An expanded Geek Squad precinct, which can help make understanding your gadgets easier
• Eye-level displays creating more opportunities to play with and discover the technology you love
• Digital registers located throughout the store to streamline the check-out process so you can get in and out faster than ever
• New in-store digital displays that update as often as our products do so you can be in-the-know with the latest information on all your favorite brands
As a thank you for sharing information about the new store experience with your readers, we’d like to offer you a $100 Best Buy gift card, as well as the chance for your readers to win $25 Best Buy gift cards. In addition, we also ask that you share your experiences on Twitter using the hashtag #NewBestBuy.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you’d be interested in this opportunity, and I’d be happy to provide more details.
If you cannot join us this weekend, that’s okay! We’d still love for you to share information about the new store layout and offer your readers the Best Buy gift card giveaway opportunity.
Making technology work for you starts with making stores that work for you. Come check out the new store and experience it for yourself!

So, what's your guess? How many bloggers will take the $100? It would be pretty easy for me to find out with a Goggle Search in a few days. Look for my update to this post.
