NFL Weekend Giveaway
But wait! What about football? This weekend’s NFL matchups, featuring the fearsome, ages-old rivalry between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, and the haughty New York Jets vs. the hearty Pittsburgh Steelers, are a reason for a party on Sunday. For broadcast times and channels in your area, go to nfl.com/schedules, where you’ll also have the option of watching or listening to the games online. It all leads up to Super Bowl XLV, which takes place
on the Fox network, on Sunday, February 6.
Mission Foods has an Ultimate Win Football Sweepstakes that ends Saturday, 1/22/11, so hurry to enter! Grand Prize is a trip to football’s “Big Game” in Texas in Feb, three First Prizes are Sony HD LCD TVs, 10 Second Prizes are $100 ESPNShop.com Gift Cards (each). Check the rules and find the entry form on the link above. (So far, Super Bowl sweepstakes seem hard to come by, but I hope to have more for you next week. Meantime, stock up on Super Bowl party supplies with discounted gift cards from Costco, Target, Walmart, or your local grocery store that you can buy here on Plastic Jungle.)

Prom Dress Giveaway
Valentine’s Day is for exchanging class rings or pins, and its follow-up parties, including Spring Semi-Formal or Prom, can be torturous for girls who want to go, but perhaps can’t afford a dress. The Windsor Store is sponsoring the Cinderella Project: Prom Dress Gift Card Giveaway, a gift card giveaway for teens (anyone under 18 must have their parent or guardian’s permission to enter). The Cinderella Project: Prom Dress Gift Card Giveaway hands a $100 Windsor Store Gift Card to 10 winners (each) so they can buy a prom dress on the site. Details are described by Windsor’s party-dress guru, Missglamorazzi on YouTube’s Windsor channel. To enter, you choose you subscribe to their YouTube channel, and go to the Windsor Store site to pick out your fave prom dress and leave a comment about it. Fun, right? Frugal junior fashionistas should also know that Windsor is a hot destination for affordable dresses under $100, sale dresses, as well as dresses at all price points for all occasions. The contest is open to residents of the US and Canada, and the contest ends on 1/31/2011; winners are announced on Valentine’s Day via text video.
Barbie’s Sweet Talkin’ Ken Giveaway
Barbie’s best date Ken is now kissing and telling. Well… he’s wearing a T-shirt that says “the perfect boyfriend” in 10 different languages, and he is able to record up to five seconds of sound so that he can play back a personal message just for you. Leave it to ElleGirl magazine to give away five of the mini-guys to lucky winners. Just enter ElleGirl’s Sweet Talkin’ Ken Giveaway by 2/11/11; use the same link to enter and read giveaway rules. For more on the Sweet Talkin’ Ken doll and to vote on whether or not Barbie should take Ken back (it’s all in good fun) go to BarbieandKen.com. Be the first to share that site amongst your friends for a good laugh.
Just FYI, uber-date Sweet Talkin’ Ken doll gets a 5-star review on Amazon.com, where he is currently in stock and ships for free. You can get Ken by exchanging an unused gift card for an Amazon.com Gift Card here on Plastic Jungle. Just go to “Sell Gift Cards” on our main page, and follow the instructions.
