You like getting stuff for free? Well, you missed out on a free Nexus One if you didn’t enter Big in Japan’s first video contest. They announced the winner today, a college student from the University of Texas named Demi Adejuyigbe. But there’s a second contest now and you could be the winner of a Motorola Droid.

“Demi’s video provides a great illustration of how millions of consumers around the world are using ShopSavvy every day – in many cases, changing the way they shop forever,” said Alexander Muse, co-founder of Big in Japan.

Said Adejuyigbe: “As a college student, I'm forced to be frugal everywhere and anywhere I can be. I’ve saved well over $1,000 with this application -- including about $200 on the video camera I used to shoot this video. I take it with me whenever I shop.”

* provide details such as store name, location, product name, and amount saved;
* star in the video themselves (no actors);
