Hundreds of new readers signed up to win a shopping challenge to buy gifts for their entire family with one $600 Sears gift card. Everything the winner buys is theirs to keep!
I used Random.org to pick a winner and 15 runner ups. These lucky readers come from CA, AZ, FL, VT, TX, NJ, GA, IL, MA, and NH. Some have been reading BargainBabe.com since I launched the site in Jan. 2009 and others joined as recently as last week.
The $600 Sears gift card must be spent between Nov. 29-Dec 5, 2010 at a Sears in MA, CT, RI, or New York City. I will be on hand to share shopping tips and catch the event on flip camera. The gift card and camera were donated by Sears. For folks who cannot fulfill the prize, I have fabulous consolation prizes.
The first runner up gets an eBay beach bag that includes a towel, reusable aluminum water bottle, and a $25 eBay gift card. Donated by eBay. Approximate value: $50.
The second runner up gets a BJ’s Warehouse club gift pack that includes three pairs of super soft fuzzy socks, Hot Hands hand warmers, Purell hand sanitizer, an extra large reusable bag decorated with red peppers, banana chips, and a $25 gift card to SpaWish. Donated by BJ’s. Approximate value: $43
The next 13 runner ups will get a $25 Restaurant.com gift card, donated by Restaurant.com. Approximate value: $25.
And the winner and runner ups, in order, are…
Thank you to everyone who signed up and made this contest possible. The winner and runner ups have 48 hours to claim their prize. If they do not respond or cannot fulfill the terms of the contest, the prize goes to the next person on the list.
How does the drawing work? Each subscriber to my daily and weekly email list gets a number that corresponds to when they signed up. The first person who signed up is No. 1. The second person who signed up is No. 2, and so on. I use Random.org to pick winning numbers, then correspond those numbers to readers.
