I love my movie collection. No matter which of my favourite movies I’m dying to see again on a particular day, I just have to look to my movie library and there it is. My collection isn’t massive (my sister has at least 3 times more movies) so there are many movies that I still look to add. If you collect movies too, then this contest is the perfect opportunity for you: buy a great classic from Best Buy and get a chance to win one of 10 Best Buy gift cards, each worth one-thousand dollars, from Universal!

That’s a great prize! So now I have to ask you two questions:

Which movie are you dying to add to your collection?

Enter your local Best Buy during the contest and you will find a display with the eligible movies. I put some of them in the image above but there are many other. Perhaps the first thing is to identify what type of movie you want to add: animated like the Despicable Me Collection, action like the Riddick Collection (one that I need to add to my collection), or perhaps comedy like the Tom Hanks early years collection.
I’ve made my choice: the next classic movie I buy will be the Back to the Future collection: gotta love Michael J. Fox!


Of course you can get these movies online too!


What would you buy at Best Buy with a $1000 gift card?

The second question for you to consider is what will you buy at Best Buy if you win one of the prizes?  You can get a great computer, or even an amazing 4K TV! With summer quickly approaching perhaps you want a new BBQ for the patio, or even new patio furniture. There are so many possibilities.



You can only enter once but there are a few ways to enter (so more people can have a chance at a prize). When you buy one of the eligible movies in store or online you will get a PIN code. Go to www.winwithUniversal.ca and enter the PIN code and you will be entered into the contest. Alternatively, if you go the the Universal link and click on “I don’t have a PIN” you can enter your email address and the rest of the info requested there including the “I am not a robot section” which I found delightful when I tried it—I can’t win of course but I had to find out if this worked. There is even a ordinary mail option (see the Rules and Regulations below to get all of the details).


At the end of the contest (after the contest closing date of June 5th) a random draw will be conducted at Universal Studio and 10 winners will be selected from all eligible entries. Each winner will receive a $1000 Best Buy Gift Card.

The contest runs from April 4, 2017 until June 5th 2017.  

Leaving comments below this blog article is always appreciated, and I would love to hear what movies you want to add to your collection, and what you would buy if you won, but for this contest a comment here will NOT qualify you for the contest. You must enter at www.winwithUniversal.ca.

Good luck!

One more thing: we frequently have many contests running at Best Buy so check out the “contests in progress” page for more great contests to enter.

  1. I would buy
    a new faster motherboard and processor.
    Would love to be able!
    Gotta win this one!

  2. Great Post ! I have read your other posts which are really informative. This post is genuinely a nice one it helps new net people. Thanks

  3. Thanks I tried the I do not have a PIN – but never did receive one…and now it just says my email was already entered.

    • no they changed the process on the first day to make it easier: now just entering your info on that page and selecting the “i don’t have a pin” and completing the “I am not a robot” part will qualify as a contest entry. good luck

  4. Thanks for the contest – entered with “I don’t have a PIN” and no Pin emailed to me.

    • apparently that didn’t work so well on that page, so they changed the entry page slightly—all you have to do is click on “I don’t have a pin” and complete the rest of the info on that page and you will be entered into the contest. I tried it, it worked, then I rewrote the “how to enter” section so it is now correct

    • you can still enter for a chance to win a $1000 gift card if you go to the Universal website and click on “I don’t have a PIN” – they’ll send you a PIN! So pause the movie, then enter the contest, then resume the movie! Ha ha!
