The magical and all-knowing wizard in the computer at random.org picked #22 – Danielle and Scott – as the winner of the $35 gift certificate to CSN Stores! Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who entered. ☺
Yup, it’s that time again! CSN Stores has offered to host another giveaway and the winner will get a $35 gift certificate to spend on any item at any of their 200 stores!*
Now, they always give me the choice of doing a review or a giveaway and I always choose to help one of you out. That’s because they just have too much good stuff to buy and I’d go way over the value of the review product! I’m don’t think that they would be willing to send me über-expensive office furniture for free… but if they are reading this and change their minds here’s what I’d like:
- Tell me what you’d love to buy from CSN.
- Be or become a follower.
- Add me to your blogroll.
- Tell others about this contest.
- Tell me your favourite holiday. Mine is St. Patrick’s Day since it’s also my birthday!
The winner will be chosen using random.org on 17 February, which is fitting since it’s Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Sorry for the announcement late in the day – I just got home from work and remembered that I had intended to select the winner this morning. After inputing all the entries into a spreadsheet (necessitated by the two ballots for being a follower) I punched the grand total of entries into random.org. Here’s the winning number:
1. I just had my first Christmas orange. By this I mean a mandarin orange. And I must specify that it was a Japanese mandarin. Stores might try to entice you to buy the Chinese mandarins – they’re usually cheaper – but they just don’t compare! This is a big thing in my household – once we’ve started getting oranges (by the boxful, of course) we know Christmas is just around the corner. Spud was excited to try it with me, but once it was in the bowl he turned up his nose, which I was fully expecting. He deigned to suck some juice out of a piece, but that was it… I love these oranges since it’s a tradition that Santa leaves one in the bottom of our stockings. On Colin’s request Santa leaves his to cool in the fridge.
Because they don’t know about it.
It’s Black Friday! Time to start (or finish) your Christmas shopping! To help you out I’m hosting a contest from CSN Stores! They’re letting me give away a $35 gift certificate redeemable at ANY of their sites.* Whether you’re looking for coffee tables or something to put on them they have what you’re looking for. They even guarantee delivery to the US by Christmas Eve for any item that’s marked with a snowflake!
Mandatory: Browse around CSN, then come back and tell me what you’d buy – it can be a Christmas present to yourself or, if you’re feeling generous, for someone else. (+1)
Be or become a follower of my blog and comment to let me know. (+2)
Leave me a comment telling me that you’ve linked this giveaway to your blog. (+1)
Contest will end Friday 3 December at 11:59pm PST. Entries will be put into a spreadsheet and the winner will be chosen by random.org. I will announce the winner’s name on Saturday 4 December.
