SMD Holiday Member Newsletter - December, 2010

SM & the AA/SMDTo all SMD Members:

If you've followed me for any length of time, you know that I've busted my butt to get where I am. Along the way, I've made many great friends and partnered up with some of the biggest companies in the business. Believe me when I tell you . . . I will never forget my roots.

Not long ago, I was just like many of you. I spent every dollar I had (and then some) so that I could have the baddest system on the block. I got a few breaks here and there, but few took me serious. Fast forward to today . . . SMD is huge - bigger than I ever dreamed it would be. Thanks to each of you for spreadin' the word!

The Holiday season is a time for giving and I want to do my part. I've gone to our SMD Partners and asked them to step up their game for YOU this holiday season. This newsletter is PACKED full of deals that I've hustled for you - now is the time to take advantage of them!

System of the Month (SOTM) - DECEMBER

I gotta' hand this one to Sam at Audio Savings. Sam pulled out all the stops and put up the BIGGEST prize in SOTM history - a complete Power Acoustik video system worth some BIG COIN. In addition, we opened up the nominations to FIFTY this month - I want everyone to have a fair shot! Make sure you cast your vote this month!

"Steve, I want to show SMD Members that Audio Savings is behind them all the way so I'm going all out this month! I'm putting up a complete video system from Power Acoustik!" Sam - Audio Savings.

If that wasn't enough, I upped the ante and tossed in the following:

1st place winner: The video system PLUS an SMD Gold Supporting Membership!
2nd place winner: $100.00 CASH out of my pocket PLUS an SMD Silver Supporting Membership!
3rd place winner: $50.00 CASH out of my pocket PLUS an SMD Bronze Supporting Membership!

Finally, I'm going to highlight EVERY nominated contestant on my facebook pages, 3-4 each day, until voting begins. I have over 20,000 friends at facebook and I want them to see YOUR builds!
