Every now and then, we come up with some innovative and fun marketing campaigns from Windows OEMs. This one is from Acer and they are partnering with Microsoft Skype to bring prizes and adventure to the users. From July 30 through September 12, users can add AcerExplorer1 on Skype to begin their virtual quest for a chance to win Acer devices and more. One grand prize winner will take a real adventure (for two) in one of the most exciting cities in the world: New York City. To keep things interesting, everyone who takes on the scavenger hunt will win Skype credit.

Those who add the Skype ID will receive a series of challenges that test wit, intellect and creativity. Some challenges will require adventurers to uncover information online:

The Acer Aspire E 11 laptop is thin and light, so you can tuck it in your bag and have it with you wherever life’s adventures take you.  Use Bing Maps to give us the name of the airport at these coordinates, one of Europe’s busiest: 50.050560,8.564420

Others ask you to send in some information or create some content of your own:

The Acer Aspire E 11 has a stylish, smart design. Your assignment: Share your most stylish outfit. Send us a picture of it to complete this challenge.

The Acer Aspire E11 is perfect for work or play. What dream job would make you feel like your work was play?

No matter what the challenge may be, everyone who takes on an Acer Adventure wins something. They’ll also be entered for the chance to win a stylish, portable and versatile Aspire Switch 10 from Acer — perfect for any adventure you might take.
