Category Contests

This contest post will stay at the top of the page from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, November 27th, 2015. Read on to find out about todayÒ€ℒs prize and enter to win!

2014amazonGCY’all know the drill: all week long I give away cool stuff donated by generous sponsors, and I enjoy my role as something of an auxiliary Santa, but save for time and sometimes shipping fees, it’s not really costing me anything. I like to end the week with something from me, because I appreciate all of you, and I make some money off the site via your shopping, so it seems only fair that I use some of that money to buy you something, for a change.

So! Years of various gadgets have gone by, and I’ve discovered nothing is as popular or universal as an Amazon gift card. Win this one and once I’ve confirmed your email I’ll send you an e-gift code for $250, suitable for holiday shopping, buying yourself a little something nice, or whatever you need/want. It’s totally up to you, and just a small thank-you from me because you’re awesome.

Want to win it? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post today (Friday, November 27th, 2015) by 8:00 p.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 p.m. Pacific) for a chance to win. The winner will be pulled and announced tonight, assuming the coffee doesn’t run out before then.

Ready? Go!

  24. Would love to win this!

  25. This would be the BEST! PRIZE! EVER!

  26. Thank you

  27. Wow, Mir! You’re so pretty…and generous, too!

    (This is the first one I’ve caught all week.)

  28. Have I told you lately that you’re pretty?

  29. Wow! What a great prize! I could use that to buy my kids some Legos! Thanks for the chance, Mir!

  33. This would help so much!

  34. What an amazing prize! πŸ™‚

  35. I survived my Thanksgiving without your assistance cooking. Lots of family pitched in, just like they’re supposed to. Wonderful day here!

  36. Thanks for this chance Mir and the great deals all year long!

  37. Well, okay, that could help with Christmas.

  38. Thanks for the great deals all year and this giveaway today.

  39. I would love to have this – we do almost 100% of our Christmas shopping at Amazon – so this would really come in handy.

  40. Thank you for all your hard work and this great gift!

  41. I need this, never been in this position before :(. People don’t realize how fast bad times can happen….

  47. If my number comes up, please give it to Jeanmarie (#41). Merry crispness!

  48. You are too generous! XOXO

  49. Yes! It is kinda weird to think that Amazon started out as an online bookstore…

  50. This would make my Christmas. Thank you.

  51. I looooooooove me some Amazon!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  52. This would totally help out with Christmas!!! Thanks for the opportunity. And my, you are pretty!!!

  53. Since we convinced our families to do a dollar limit on gifts, this would pretty much knock out almost all my gift purchases!

  54. Wow! You’re not only pretty, but incredibly generous.
    If your “pick a number thingy” finds mt number, my family would have actual gifts this year. Due to a couple of unexpected major expenses, I have no $ some other necessary expenditures, so there will be no gift giving in my household. I’m blessed to have a child (now 18 and in college 3 states away) who will umderstand (but, I imagine will feel some disappointment).

    Now, go have more coffee, hug your babies and husbamd, and kiss those doggies 🐢🐢🐢.

  56. This would be amazing.

  57. This is awesome! Amazon, the UPS driver and I have become VERY good friends:)

  69. Good one! Very generous. πŸ™‚
