Gift Card Giveaways for Friday, December 3, 2010
Happy Friday! There is a feeling in the wind that someone–or maybe more than one someone–who reads this post is going to win one of the great gift cards listed in the giveaways below. Call it intuition, Holiday spirit, or just plain ESP, but the feeling is extremely strong! However, you can’t win if you don’t enter, so make sure and take the time to enter these giveaways. There couldn’t be a more perfect time to win a free gift card.
Check the deadlines of each listing, they each have their own. Because it is the holidays, there are lots of giveaways online right now within networks and holiday giveaway celebrations. Take advantage of these for the chance to win big for the holidays.
This giveaway from BlogHer has quite a bit of reach, as does the Blogher Network. The link in this post will lead you to the main giveaway, which is fantastically for 21 gift cards from HomeGoods. The main winner will receive a $100 gift card and twenty other winners will each get a HomeGoods gift card for $25. HomeGoods has some gorgeous and yet practical stuff for your home. You really should check out beautiful vintage gift bags they carry, they are beyond description pretty. The reach I am speaking of is that in the sidebar of Blogher there is a widget with a rolling list of bloggers who are also giving away HomeGoods gift cards. A great windfall here for a lot of folks. The giveaways end on Dec. 29th. All you need to do is comment and say who you would buy a gift for at HomeGoods.
Our strong feeling is much more a surety with this gift card giveaway from It’s Thoughtful. Just sign up for their Amazon.com gift card contest, get 15 people to sign up under you, and bingo! You will be emailed a $25 Amazon.com gift card on Dec. 18th! The contest ends at midnight on Dec. 15th, so get busy signing up your friends, family, and all the other gift card fanatics in your network.
Here’s another BIG giveaway that is spread across other blogs. (Did you know that they make maternity belly button rings? Ok, beside the point, but was total news to this blogger!) The journey to $190 in gift coupon codes for one lucky winner begins at Belly Charms. This giveaway includes $100 gift from Belly Charms, $65 gift certificate from Wacky Jacqui’s Designs, and a $25 credit at Jasmere.com. To enter all you have to do is follow Belly Charms on Google Friend Connect, the widget in the sidebar. There are a lot of ways to get extra entries, but this is also where it gets really interesting. Like one of those Russian dolls that have doll after doll after doll inside each other, there are a total of 231 blogs participating in this giveaway and in turn adding one of their own or another blog’s. This blog hopping giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday, Dec. 5th, day after tomorrow, so set aside some time to create your entries. This is also a really good way of getting to know other bloggers if you blog and/or make friends online. If you have an online business, this is such a great chance for free PR too.
The last one for today is another doozie. It starts out at Momdot, where 20 lucky winners will receive a $25 gift card from American Express over the next two weeks. All you need to do to be entered is tell Momdot why your family deserves to be a winner in the Season of Surprises from American Express. Now, this is where it gets really good! This giveaway is a way American Express decided to launch their Season of Surprises, and boy are there going to be some great ones! MomDot explains her gift card giveaway here:
“20 winners will be pulled onand 10 winners will be pulled on . All winners will be emailed and have 72 hours to respond w/ shipping information for gift card. You may only win ONE card, therefore if you win on the first round you are ineligible on the second round. I use the And the Winner Plugin to pull winners randomly.”
The above giveaway is separate from the American Express Season of Surprises, although each gift card won will qualify for the major giveaway from American Express. Here is the explanation of how the Season of Surprises works:
