Win a free Droid Turbo 2 in Verizon’s latest #WhyNotWednsday promotion

Droid Turbo 2
Want a free Droid Turbo 2? Verizon is giving away 200 units in its new #WhyNotWednesday offer, starting today, letting you snatch the new Motorola smartphone early. The Droid Turbo 2 was announced yesterday at a Motorola event, and Verizon plans to start selling it tomorrow.

Anyone that wants to enter the competition should visit droidseeker.whynotwednesday.com, add a telephone number, and sign-in to Twitter. Once all that is done, Verizon will teleport you to a virtual city at night. You must find the Droid Turbo 2 hidden in the building within 30 seconds to win the smartphone.

Each time a Droid Turbo 2 is found, it is removed from the city, making it harder to find the last few units. The contest will continue until all 200 smartphones are found, but Verizon has not published exact details on the game and how long it will take to find all of the units.

#WhyNotWednesday is an exclusive program for Verizon customers, giving them free access services. Previous promotions have included a Lyft ride in a DeLorean on Back to the Future week, Avicii’s latest album Stories for free, insider access to New York’s fashion week, and free NFL live streaming.

The Droid Turbo 2 builds on the power of the original, with a shatterproof screen and 48-hours battery life. Verizon is promoting the 2TB of expandable storage and 21-megapixel Sony Exmor camera. All the other specs on the Droid Turbo 2 are super high-end, making it one of the best performing smartphones available in the United States.
