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 24th, 2017. Read on to find out about today’s prize and enter to win!

The hope—by the time we get to Black Friday—is that you’ll hang around and shop with me for the day, and not just that you’re coming by to try to win stuff. But it really doesn’t matter either way. I put together this week of giveaways every year because I’m lucky to be in a position to do so, and I like to end the week by helping to make sure that someone out there gets to do a little extra shopping.

So here we are at Friday, and by the end of today, I’m going to send an e-certificate to one lucky reader so that you can go to Amazon and buy gifts or essentials or whatever you want. (Did you know they sell giant gummy bears? I’m not telling you what to do, just throwing it out there.)

Anyway! 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 24th, 2017) 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, and I will purchase/send the certificate as soon as they confirm their email address.

Ready? Go!

  99. Longtime follower and shopper here. My little guy isn’t so little anymore, but he (now 10) *adored* the tees I scored for his bday from the Threadless deal you posted earlier this month. Seriously, who knew that a unicorn in a jet pack was a hit with tween boys?

    Thanks for everything you do.

    This single mama is crossing fingers and toes today. My sweet boy asked Santa for a refurbished ipad, and it is so not in my budget.
