Win-It Wednesday: $250 Bealls Florida Gift Card!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 10, 2011 · 284 comments

This post brought to you by Bealls. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's back-to-school season. The number of days left spent poolside are numbered. The sun is slowly losing it's heat, and the stores are stocking shelves full of pencils, colorful notebooks and folders and crayons as far as the eye can see. In addition to supplies, the kids have likely been growing over the summer. Pants that once fit well now look as though a flood is headed their way. Shoes that graced their feet just two short months ago have become tight and uncomfortable after a summer's worth of sandals and sun.

Inevitably, a trip to the store is in order. As we head to the store to stock up for the kids we generally focus on essentials: t-shirts, socks, jeans and other items that can be layered once it gets colder. Start by for deals in the sale and clearance sections on summer items, searching for t-shirts and shorts that can be paired with long-sleeve undershirts and worn for the first two months of school. Once the weather truly starts to turn cold, the back-to-school items will all be on clearance to make room for holiday wear, and you can jump on those sales.

Back-2-School at Bealls has all you need for the back-to-school season, from uniforms to trendy styles for boys and girls. You'll have all your back-to-school shopping done in no time.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom winner will receive a $250 gift card to Bealls Florida (can be used online too)!

To enter, tell me how you would spend $250 on back-to-school shopping at Bealls.

Hi there!
I am currently living in TX, where my hubby is stationed. However, we are both from FL and are very familiar with Bealls!! I would send the giftcard to my mom in FL so she can purchase clothes, shoes and backpacks for my two brothers in high school. Fashion is very important to "high schoolers," and my brothers are no exception! One of my brothers LOVES the Gators, so I KNOW he would love UF gear! Also, my hubby and I will be finishing our degrees at USF when we return home, so my brothers would definitely wear their gear to "represent" for us! I'm pretty sure they'll both enjoy Converse sneakers as well. I know there's no feeling like brand new clothes and shoes, especially the first day of school! I like to go school-shopping with them, and since I can't be there this year, giving my mom a giftcard would make me feel better. Besides, I'd love to see how right I am about what my brothers wear now. You know kids, they're styles are ALWAYS changing! Thanks for the opportunity DSM!! :)

19 Kathy August 10, 2011 at 7:51 pm

I have an amazing granddaughter who is entering her first year of high school. If I were to win this gift card, I would buy her new clothes, from top to bottom. Her mother is struggling through some very difficult times at the moment and has very limited resources to outfit her for school. Many thanks for this opportunity.

If I won $250 gift card to Beall's, I would use it to buy backpacks and shoes for needy kids that I would donate to my church. My church is already collecting school supplies and I have been going store to store and shopping all the sales and buying school glue, pens, rulers, paper, crayons, etc., whatever I can get at the cheapest prices. We also have a Manna program - a grocery program to help provide groceries to community families. I buy BOGO items as often as I can to donate. Soooo, I would definitely use this to buy items that could be donated to my church and given to needy kids! I am very blessed to be able to give my daughter what she needs, so I like to be able to give back as much as possible! :-)


39 Mandi August 10, 2011 at 9:08 pm

I could buy my whole family clothes!!!


40 Tiffany Kinney August 10, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I would buy my 3 kids clothes for school. Much needed!


41 Sarah O'Brien August 10, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Love, love, love Beall's. Jeans and shoes are always on the wish/need list at back-to-school time!


42 lori August 10, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I would buy new clothes for my son who is in college.


43 Shawnda August 10, 2011 at 9:20 pm

My boys are too young for back to school but they can always use more clothes!


44 Sue August 10, 2011 at 9:23 pm

A $250 gift card would make a much-needed shopping spree. As to a what-to-buy list: EVERYTHING!!!!
Thanks for a great web site, has provided many terrific bargains :>)


45 Misty August 10, 2011 at 9:26 pm

47 Julie B August 10, 2011 at 9:49 pm

All in our family of 3 would benefit from the giftcard. The toddler would get some fall clothes. And the adults both wear uniforms for work and have let our wardrobes go from outdated to poorly fitting or just plain worn out.


48 alh1203 August 10, 2011 at 9:55 pm
