Best Buy just ran one of the biggest Star Wars’ toy contests you would find anywhere! However, that was just the teaser. This new contest is the main event! We are giving away 7 huge prize bundles, each worth close to $2000! There are even 2 bundles of Star Wars prizes! That means Best Buy is giving away almost $14,000 in toys for this contest. Imagine how many holiday wishes you can make come true by winning one of these fantastic prize bundles!

What is your Christmas wish

A packful of toys means a sackful of joys
For millions of girls and for millions of boys

When I was a child, deciding what you wanted for Christmas meant hours of joy looking through the holiday catalogue, and writing out a wish list. That catalogue had all the newest toys, from remote control cars to the latest Star Wars vehicles. Those wishes would go into my letter to Santa and magically something that I had put in that letter would appear under the tree on December 25th. Well it’s 2017 and catalogues have moved online.

At Best Buy, you can visit our Holiday Gift Guide to see new tech, new toys, new televisions, new laptops …. It is the new starting place to go when creating your wish list. From there you can click to “Gifts for women” or “Gifts for kids” and more. We hope you find it useful as you prepare to make the holiday wishes of your family and friends come true.

A sackful of joys 

The winners of this contest will certainly have “toys galore” just like in the song “The most wonderful day of the year” to satisfy a sackful of holiday wishes. There are 7 prize bundles, 2 of them are Star Wars themed; all of them include some of the most sought after smart toys, robots, and board games of the year. There are bundles with toys for younger children and for older children (like me!). Check out the rules and regulations for the complete prize list.


Entering this contest is really easy, but you can enter only once. First you must visit and browse Best Buy’s Holiday Gift Guide and find one item that you can add to your personal wish list or to your list of gifts for others. Return here, and in a comment at the end of this article, tell us what that item is that you selected from the gift guide. That’s it.


At the end of the contest we will randomly choose  seven winners from all eligible entries. Each of those winners will receive one of the seven prize bundles (each bundle is worth approximately $2000).

This contest runs from November 3rd until November 16th.

Remember you can only enter this contest once by leaving a comment below identifying one thing on the Holiday Gift Guide that you would like to receive or to give this holiday season. Note that your friends and family would also like a chance to win one of these so in the true spirit of giving, tell them about the contest and they too might win “toys galore!”

Good Luck
