burton Backpacks

You can’t send your children to school without a backpack! There are books, and papers and assignments and pens and TECHNOLOGY—yes what child goes to school these days without tech? Enter this contest and for the next year you might not have to worry about all of that stuff getting to school safely: Best Buy has 10 backpack prizes to give away.

Do you really need a new backpack

When my 2 children were younger, this would be the time of year for the “backpack check” to find out if last year’s backpack could last another year. Inevitably, a new one (or two) would be needed. They knew the drill: go to Bestbuy.ca and scan the backpack options for a few backpacks they liked (Best Buy has a huge selection so it might take some time). I would then look at their preferences and decide which one was the best for their school year.

As a parent, I would much rather replace a banged-up backpack than have their tech get damaged. I knew they would end up with a high quality bag: Best Buy has many of the top brands.

For example, the prizes in this contest are all made by Burton—one of the best brands for backpacks! We are giving away 5 Burton Prospects, and 5 Burton Tinder backpacks.


This contest is easy to enter but you can only enter once. In a comment below this article, tell us what item (could be a tech item or something else) that your child will bring to school are you most interested in protecting with the backpack.


We will randomly draw 10 winners from all eligible comments. Each winner will receive one of the 10 backpack prizes: there are 5 Burton Prospect backpacks and 5 Burton Tinder backpacks available to be won.

The contest runs from August 11th until August 25th.

Remember you can only enter once. Share the contest with your family and friends, especially those without children so if they win they can give the backpack to you—just explain to them that your child’s laptop needs a great backpack to protect it this year.

Good luck

  1. My Daughter is about to leave on a research expedition to Germany. She will need a reliable backpack to store her MacBook linked to all her data and thesis materials.

  2. The most important item that my grandson needs to protect is his laptop. He is going into grade 12 and his laptop is like a Life Line.

  3. Absolutely a laptop! Often backpacks don’t have a padded and protected section for delicate and expensive technology. However, this backpack would not only be able to protect a laptop but all other devices that will be important and helpful for school.

  4. The most important item to protect is the laptop. It is a costly item & very difficult to be without if it were to get damaged.
