my first giveaway!

So I've been kinda lucky lately and have been winning stuff from blog giveaways. It's mostly baby stuff, which is awesome for me. I have been wanting to pay it forward to my small following here, and now is the time. No, I'm not giving away baby stuff! I don't think even half my readers have kids.

 No, no, this is much more practical.


You could use that, right??

Awesome.  And lucky for you, I don't have that many followers.

I get these a lot thanks to a little thing called Swagbucks.  If you've been living under a rock and don't know what Swagbucks is, it's basically a free site where you can accumulate points by doing searches, surveys, playing games, and other stuff.  Then you can exchange your points for stuff--all of mine go to getting these awesome Amazon.com gift cards.

The winner of the giveaway will be emailed the gift card code, and then they can just put it in their Amazon account.  Amazon keeps a tab for you, so you can just apply it to your next purchase.

How to enter (leave a comment for each, and make sure I have some way of contacting you):
  • One entry:  Follow my blog in some way.  Leave a comment telling me how (GFC, Google reader, RSS, my Twitter feed, etc.).  I would love to know how people are reading me (or if they are at all!).
  • FOUR entries:  Sign up for Swagbucks under my referral link (also found in my sidebar).  Leave a comment with your Swagbucks username.  Since this is worth 4 entries, just leave extra comments if you do this.  ALSO, I just found out that you can use the code BIGTIMEBUCKS when you sign up right now and get an extra 70 Swagbucks!  You already get 30 for signing up, so that's 100 total.  That will put you well on your way to many awesome prizes!  The code is good until 10/3, which is coincidentally when I chose to end this giveaway.
  • One entry:  For those of you already on Swagbucks, I'll give you an entry just for being cool.  Just tell me in a comment.  Leave your Swagbucks username and I might just find you and add you as a friend on there because I have absolutely no idea what that feature does.

Winner will be selected via random.org or maybe pulling numbers out of a hat.  Giveaway will close at noon CDT on Monday, Oct. 3 (also our anniversary!), and winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

AND if you're still reading, here's a bonus that hopefully still works (it did yesterday!).  Go to Amazon's site here and log in, then use the promo code FALLMP3S and you'll get a $2 credit to buy MP3s in Amazon's store.  You can probably get two songs with it!  See, a giveaway you didn't even have to win.  Totally sharing the love today.


IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES COMMENTING ON THIS POST FOR ENTRIES, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT CATHERINEANN61 AT YAHOO DOT COM.  I'M SORRY THAT BLOGGER IS NOT COOPERATING, AND I AM DOING MY BEST TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE.

Disclaimer: Swagbucks and Amazon.com in no way sponsored this giveaway, and they have no idea I'm doing it.  The opinions here are my own.  Yes, I do get a fair amount of points from Swagbucks referrals, so it is in my interest to advertise.

  3. I'm probably the weird one who doesn't know anything about blogging or the other stuff you mentioned. Just thought you'd find it interesting to know that I follow you weekly through my "most viewed websites" when I open a new tab in Google Chrome. ~Nikki
