Alaskan Bargain Hunter EARLY winner and new giveaway!




Okay, I have to admit it is official that I only have one week left in a giveaway and I have EXACTLY two entrants. That my friends constitutes as a "Giveaways failure" I'm going to call it. So, I'm using my "blogger Godlike status" in this case to just close the giveaway early and move on!

So, I went to Random.org and just used the little widget to pick a random number 1 or 2. It chose 2. Then I flipped a coin and got tails. So, it is official...

buswellj, you are the winner of the either the Fabric Sweeper for pethair OR the 2 cans of formula. So please e-mail me and let me know which you want.

Okay, to help alleviate my injured pride over such a monstorous failure of a giveaway, this time around I'm giving away something everyone could use. Money. Or, at least money in the form of a 10.00 Target giftcard!

Per usual, this is a month long giveaway. It will start today August 28th and go through September 28th. At that point I'll pick a winner and mail off your card to you. And yes, this is open to all legal residents of the United States. So, go for it!

So, what do you have to do to enter? Just leave a comment on this post on what you would do with a 10.00 Target giftcard. And that's it!

Enjoy and good luck!

haha! you're funny! i don't have a pet and don't use formula, so that's why i didn't enter your last giveaway. i DO however...shop at target! i'd certainly turn that 10.00 gift card into some serious money, and use it to buy at least 50.00 worth of stuff for only 10.00 after coupons and matchups!!! :)

I only wish I could know what was going to be on sale a month from now! Hmmm...$10 at Target could go a really long way! How about this I will post pictures of what I buy if I win! Thanks Erika! When I get home tonight I will post about the giveaway on my blog.

$10 at Target, I'd probably use it to buy my daughter Easy Mac. She wants to take it every day in her new thermos, it stays warm too. Sounds like a great give away.

Slightly Hippieish Mama said...

Count me in....$10 at Target is bliss!! Love the site, you've now become a favorite in my book!

Erin said...

I'd probably buy some new lunch containers with it. I wish they had a Target here in the Interior, but I travel to Anchorage pretty often, and it's nice to have one in state.

Renee G said...

Let's see--- I'd probably stop by Target and pick up some early Halloween Candy.

I could use a new purse :)

Jennifer said...

I think I would have to splurge and buy something just for me :) Shoes perhaps.

calster said...

LOL I don't have a dog or baby either. Target GC...hmm, as much as I could get between clearance items and whatever deals. Great thing about the GC (vs. RR) is no expiration and don't have to use it all at one time!

I'd probably get new gym shoes for my older daughter if I win :)

I love Target. I was just there this morning. I would probably use the card for my regular target shopping, although I might just splurge with it and buy myself something to decorate my house. A cute wall hanging.

Christian Frugal Mama said...

Ha. I hear ya. Thanks for the Target giveaway though! I'd probably use it on the Target brand diapers, I love their quality for the money.

Veronica said...

Hmm..let's see..with $10 at Target, I would probably have to say I would spend it on my kids or my baby. They are always, ALWAYS wanting something so I am sure that could put it to good use :)

What a great giveaway. Thank you for hosting this.

I'd use the gift card as part of a Christmas gift for one of my sisters. I'm trying to gather one gift card/gift certificate for each month of 2010 so that she gets a new one - to a new place - each month. :)

lunyuny said...

I am new to the coupon game. With three boys it would go to groceries. Using my new knowledge of course on the savings LOL

Lori said...

Hi, I hear target has these cool organizers where you cn plug all your chargers in, like for your cell phone or ipods and then it is all out of the way. I would use this coupon towards one of these to try and keep all this stuff out of the way.

Bruce said...

I'm a new reader and interested in this new way to cut costs.I love Target for clothes for my grandchildren as well as things for us. Great site!
I will check in to look for savings...sorry I didn't log in earlier I have pets and lot of pet hair to deal with..

Moriel said...

I'd buy clothes--I'm...kind of addicted to clothes shopping? Cheap clothes though, I almost always buy on clearance, and Target's clearance is often pretty good. A $10 card might get me a couple clearance shirts or one slightly more expensive shirt.

Crystal said...

With $10 at Target, I would love to say I would spend it on myself, but more than likely it would probably go towards the kids. Maybe something for Halloween, that would be fun. ;)

Jeanette said...

$10 at Target... I would put that toward new rugs because my dog has chewed up my old ones and I can't bring myself to buy new onew yet.

Coupon Gal said...

Thanks for the opportunity! I apprecite you offering this to your readers!

Hazel said...

A combination of a 10 dollar gift card, manufactour and Target coupon would sure make for some great deals. As well as maybe 10 bucks off a Winter coat for my 7 year old who was overlooked during clearance time last spring. Thanks for the opportunity to win $.

FastFoodQuality said...

With a $10 giftcard I'd get my daughter a new book.

Tifflonn@yahoo.com said...

I would buy some Enfamil Prenatal Vitamins and then send in for the Enfamil rebate (up to $13.99). And then when I get the rebate refund check....I would buy a container of Tasters Choice coffee because with a new baby, I will need alot of coffee.
