Featured Giveaways - 2/12

Every day I'm going to attempt to provide a few giveaways that I think are worth entering.  Along the way we'll see recurring themes such as, how do we keep track of what we enter, did I tweet that, and re-reading the bonus entries.

Featured Giveaway #1

Sugar Pop Ribbons is giving away some ridiculously cute stuffed animals from the folks at Aurora.

I first saw this giveaway on Twitter and then again on Facebook, so I knew it was calling out to me.

As we always do, make sure you read the fine print.  In reviewing the rules, there are seven entry possibilities, a few of those I already do, such as follow on twitter and friends on facebook.  We still need to document each one in the comments. 

They are also giving a daily entry for tweeting the giveaway.  I'm going to have to figure out an easy way to remember to tweet that.  Since I'm new to twitter, I'm always open to suggestions.

Featured Giveaway #2

So far, I've focused in on blog giveaways.  While this is a thriving and opportunity filled arena to prize-shop, bigger fish can be found in sponsored sweepstakes.

Here's a great one from our pals over at the Boston Herald.  However, since I don't live in that area, I'll want to take a close look at the rules to make sure I don't have to leave from there or be present to win.  I have done this and will share a few other tidbits in a second.  I'm sure you're interested in what this giveaway is?


That's right, folks.  5 days and 4 nights with the mouse, hotel and airfare included.  That's what I'm talking about.

The details that I found in the rules are that you have to take the vacation by 1/31/2011, there are some blackout dates, and you cannot transfer this to someone else.  YOU MUST TAKE THE TRIP!

These sorts of rules are basic for vacation giveaways.  I am impressed that they are springing for airfare though.  That isn't always included.

Also, be sure to opt out of any newsletters that you may find that you're being signed up for.  Your email account is going to be flooded as a prize hound.  Try to take steps to avoid an unwanted newsletter whenever possible.  (Some giveaways require you to subscribe.  Read the rules to find out if it's optional.)

This is also a one entry deal, so we won't be visiting this page again.  Click your form filler button and submit!

Featured Giveaway #3

Today's third and final featured giveaway is a prize pack that is near and dear to my heart.  An Oscar Prize Pack!  There aren't many things I enjoy more than a good film, popcorn, and a nice dirty martini.  And if I win this from Savvy Mom Finds, I'll be sipping that stuff while watching the Oscars next month.

I found this giveaway on, which is my go-to site for new giveaways and sweepstakes.  I'll be sure to have a feature on this site in the near future.

Since this is a blog, we'll be commenting, tweeting, and subscribing according to the rules as noted in the post.  (notice how I hammer this point home?  follow the rules!!)

This is a new site for me, so I'll be following and befriending them for the first time.  I'm very excited to see what kind of cool content our new friends at Savvy Mom Finds have to offer!
