My First Giveaway… A $60 Gift Card!

Edited to add: This giveaway has ended.  Thank you for stopping by!

Dear Readers, I have neglected you sorely this summer. In an attempt to make it up to you, I am hosting my first giveaway!

I was recently contacted by CSNstores who offered to award one of my lucky U.S. or Canadian readers a $60 gift to use on their website. They sell everything from kitchen tables to pie pans to exercise equipment to eco-friendly pet products. And more! Since I’m kind of a cooking-geek I went straight to the cookware to check things out. I was drooling over the Cuisinart pots and pans and coveting the Nordicware bundt pan, myself.

They have a huge selection of name brand products and the prices are very reasonable. The gift certificate does not include shipping and handling but many of the products have free shipping offers.

Entering is easy-peasy: to enter, check out CSNstores.com, then come back here and leave a comment on this post telling me what you would buy with your gift card. Leave your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you win.

This giveaway will be open for a week, ending Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. CST. The winner will be chosen using Random.org and I will contact them via email. Please respond to that email within 48 hours or I will have to choose a new winner. The winner’s name will be announced after they respond to their notifying email.

The giveaway is only open to U.S. and Canadian readers; my apologies to everyone else!


I was not compensated in any way for this post or for the giveaway. This is all for you guys!

Yes, you HAVE neglected us. I've just been sitting here waiting for you. (I might have stepped away for a time or two.*g*)

Their prices are quite reasonable. Certainly comparable to other places and at least one of my drooly items is on sale for 10% off!

I would get two things: the Eat Smart Digital Food scale and either an Ameribag or Baggelini microfiber bag. (I might have to put a little of my own moolah with it.)

Great giveaway!

Wow! They have a ton of great baking sheets, which I'm in need of badly! I have needed a silpat(silicone baking mat) for the longest time, but those suckers are expensive. I would have to get one of those too!

I think the Little Tykes picnic table would be about the best Christmas present in the whole world for my child. It gets way too cold to go out much around then so I want to turn a garage into an indoor playland for all the neighborhood kids The picnic table would be such a cute addition! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

There are so many things I would love to get... I should get some silicone baking mats, as I use way too much parchment paper. I think the number of mats I would get would use up the $60! Or I could use it to put toward replacing my scratched and unusable nonstick pots... that's probably more important. So many wonderful things, so few dollars!

I know exactly what I'd use it for if I won! :D I have three children, currently aged 2, 2, and 7 months (and the 2-year-olds are NOT twins!) So, I would use the gift card towards a three-seat stroller. We currently get by without one, but that would be the only way to really be able to get out with them fairly easily by myself (as you can imagine)! :)
