Need a gift-y shopping spree?

Category Contests

I know I mentioned last week that is having a Christmas in July sale, and that may have piqued your interest; but when I didn’t mention is that I joined their affiliate program recently, and they are very eager to make y’all new patrons. So eager, in fact, that their rep said, “How about we do some giveaways?” And I, of course, being the shy, retiring flower that I am, said, “Oh, no, that’s okay.”

Wait. That’s not what I said. I think I said something a little closer to “Heck yeah!” I’m a little fuzzy on the details. You know how free stuff gets me all excited.

So here’s the deal: This week one lucky Want Not reader is going to win a $50 gift code to! What will you buy if you win? That’s totally up to you, though I bet you’ll have trouble picking from myriad choices. Oh, well… worry about that after you win.

Want to play? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, July 22nd, 2010 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and general gift-giving karma.

Ready? Go!
