Self-Storage Operator The Lock Up Holds Tap Into Technology Sweepstakes


Nationwide operator The Lock Up Self Storage is offering tenants the chance to win an Amazon Kindle Fire, a tablet computer and e-reader device, in the Tap Into Technology sweepstakes. The contest runs from May 15 to June 30 and gives one potential or existing customer at each of the company's 31 locations the opportunity to win a color, tap-screen Kindle Fire. However, contestants must be tenants by June 30 to be eligible.

“The Lock Up is continually looking for new ways to help their customers keep their lives organized ... even outside of their storage units,” said Andrea Carnes, vice president of operations.

By installing apps that aid with productivity and efficiency, the Kindle Fire will allow the sweepstakes winners to improve their organizational skills. The Lock Up recommends these apps:

  • Catch, which allows users to set reminders and pin notes to their home screens
  • Cozi, which is designed for family scheduling
  • Springpad, which serves busy business owners

Contestants can enter by liking The Lock Up on Facebook and following on-screen instructions. Those who don't use Facebook can enter by going to

Kindle Fire winners must redeem prize in person, within 30 days of notification and at the location selected on entry form.
