$50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!


$50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway.

This week I won a gift code for Amazon as a secondary prize in a contest. Unfortunately, the gift code is for Amazon.com & not Amazon.ca. & being the friendly Canadian that I am added to the fact that sadly, not very much exciting stuff is shipped to Canada from Amazon.com, I am passing this onto you, one of my readers who never leave any comments on my postings. & it's a special thank you to people in online communities for sharing valuable information & links that have assisted me in winning things in previous contests.

This giveaway is open to US & Canadian residents.
* Canadian residents please note gift code is in US FUNDS *

Ways to enter:

01. Tell me what you would buy yourself, a friend or a family member if you won, or if you're really nice, me. Or tell me it's a secret or none of my business. [1 entry = 1 comment]. required.
02. Follow my blog. [1 entry = 1 comment]. optional.
03. Subscribe to my blog. [1 entry = 1 comment]. optional.
04. Take a look around & comment on your favorite item. Come back & let me know you have commented on one of my other posts. [1 entry = 1 comment]. optional.

A total of 4 comments equaling 4 entries.

Winner will be chosen randomly via random.org. You do not need a blog to enter, just be sure that you include an email where I am able to reach you to deliver your code to. Gift card will be delivered electronically via email. You have 48 hours to respond to my initial email. If you do not respond within 48 hours you will forfeit your prize & I will pick a secondary winner randomly via random.org. Contest begins today, March 10th 2010 & will end March 31st 2010 @ 11:59:59PM.

Thanks & Good Luck!

- STAL!
