So who braved WalMart and the mall on Friday? If you did, I applaud you!
Remember when we used to have to wait until Thanksgiving morning to go through the ads and make our shopping lists? These days, ads are available online well before Black Friday, and the deals start way earlier, too! In a way, that makes me sad because it takes away from the excitement and anticipation. But, as a love-to-plan-aheader, I love it. I got some fabulous deals on Thanksgiving day. On Black Friday, I avoided the crowds and stayed home in my jammies to deck my halls.
And today is Cyber Monday, when the online deals are supposed to be REALLY good. I'm sure there will be a few hard-to-pass-up sales, but many are probably prices that were probably offered last week and/or will be offered again in the next couple of weeks. But, hey. I don't want to put a damper on your shopping experience. I hope you find that perfect bargain!
So for the past few years, I've featured a great giveaway on Thanksgiving weekend, which I've held either as a FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS FRIDAY GIVEAWAY on Black Friday or A SUBSCRIBER MONDAY GIVEAWAY on Cyber Monday. It's my way of saying THANK YOU for taking the time to visit me throughout the year, and even indulge me once in a while with your comments. Since everyone loves gift cards, I'm offering that again as the prize this year. Choose between one of the following:
- $20 Amazon gift card
- $20 Christian Book Distributors.com gift card
- $20 eBay gift card
- $20 Barnes and Noble.com gift card
- $20 FamilyChristian.com gift card
Simply leave a comment letting me know which gift card you would choose, and don't forget to include your email address so I can get in touch with you if you're the winner. I will be randomly selecting a winner from all comments next Monday, December 3.
*You MUST be a follower or a subscriber to be eligible. If you're not yet a follower, no problem! Just click on "Follow" (over there to the right) and you'll be automatically qualified. Then leave your comment.
*You MUST tell me which ONE PRIZE you would choose. None mentioned? More than one mentioned? No entry.
*You MUST leave a valid email address so I can contact you if you're the winner. No email? No win.
Winner will be selected at random using RandomLinePicker, from all entries received. Gift card will be sent electronically. Deadline to enter: 5:00 AM on Monday, December 3 (I get up early and plan to do the drawing first thing in the morning).
Let me just say again how much I truly appreciate you for reading my blog. I wish I could send every one of you a gift card (but my husband would kill me).
OK. That's it! Go ahead and leave your comment.
Looking ahead...I'll be offering a great 12 DAYS OF BOOKS GIVEAWAY. There will be 12 books and 12 winners! Just in time for Christmas! Be sure to watch for it!
