Giveaway: $50 Walmart Gift Card

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 22, 2008 · 1,561 comments

How does an extra $50 to stretch your Christmas budget sound?

I know for many of us it would be a true blessing right now. Well, you're in luck, because I've got one $50 Walmart gift card up for grabs today that will arrive just in time to do some Christmas shopping!

So how can you win this?

If you're anything like me, I'm sure if you won this $50 GC, you'd end up spending it on anyone BUT yourself. So just for a minute I'd like you to pretend that you have no other obligations and can use this money to buy yourself a little something special. I think as mom we often overlook treating ourselves, so I'd like to hear what you'd buy if you were the winner. Resources for ideas are the Walmart website and the 2008 Holiday Entertaining Guide. Of course, if you're the winner you can use the gift certificate to purchase anything you want.

Every reader has four methods available to enter this contest. Choose one each of any combination of method one, two, three, or four, for up to a total of 4 entries!!!

1. Leave a comment sharing what you would purchase if you were to spend the money on yourself only!

2. Take just 2 seconds to click over to The Coupon Cupboard to vote for Deal Seeking Mom as your favorite deals blog. Make sure to come back and leave a separate comment letting me know you voted! (This option is only available through Sunday, November 23rd, at 8:00 p.m., EST.)

3. Subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and leave a separate comment letting me know you have done so. If you’re already a subscriber, simply leave a separate comment letting me know you’re already subscribed. Lovin’ my subscribers! You guys make this all possible.

4. Spread the word about this contest in some manner and come back and leave a link in a separate comment. If you have a blog, you can blog about it. But if you don’t have a blog, you’re not at a disadvantage. You could review and Stumble it. You could Twitter it. You could post about it in a forum. Use your imagination!

It is important that you leave a separate comment for each type of entry because each comment is equal to one entry. Sorry to harp on this, but it really is that important to tally and select the winner easily, so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me simplify the process!

Prize:
1 $50 Walmart Gift Certificate

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, November 24th. I’ll use Random.org to generate a number that corresponds with the winning comment number and post the winner on Tuesday, November 25th. Good luck!

While you're in a contest entering mood, don't forget to check out the Giveaway Gathering for a variety of contests being hosted on Deal Seeking Mom readers' blogs!

I would most likely use it to buy some good food and games. My husband and I are so busy going in seperate directions all the time, I would use that as an opprotunity to make us both slow down and have an evening together... it's been a long time since we have just been together!

If I would win $50 Walmart card and could only spend it on myself, I would have to buy some jeans. All of my jeans have torn except the ones I'm wearing now and they now have a hole in the same place where the others worn out. I would also try to squeeze in some socks since my children are always getting mine!

Does Wal-Mart sell massages? :) Oh well, I guess slippers, maybe an exercise ball, but it would probably end up being Christmas presents.

Wow! $50 and only for me! I guess I would treat myself to makeup, like a new lipstick, peachy blush, eyeshadow, mascara and a tinted moisturizer in more natural colors than what I already own. When you're a mom, everyone else's needs seem to have greater priority than yours, and new cosmetics seem like such a non-necessity especially when you convince yourself that you can make do with the same tired old (and now decomposing) stuff you already own.

I had planned to splurge on bras this weekend, until my son's bike was stole lastnight. If we can't recover his bike by the weekend, I'll be spending my bra money on a new bike and will desperately need the Walmart GC to get some cheap bras there.
