When I set out to do my last blog contest I was obviously on a budget, but I still wanted it to be fun for you guys. I decided to try and solicit some companies for some of my favorite items to give-away, especially since I had written about them all in previous posts. I just randomly emailed their customer service departments, which may be why I had low response rates, and asked if they would like to send me anything in return for a mention on the blog and a link back to their site. I knew it was a shot in the dark but I figured it would pad my prize-pack, which was made up mostly of things I got with rewards points from my credit card and my MyPoints rewards (if you haven’t used that site before, you should).
Last week when I was in the Keys, I got a short email asking me where to send the stuff (not sure what stuff it was, but I supplied my home address anyway). Then yesterday I got a package (don’t you just love mail?) and this was inside:
|6 sets of Outdoor Products’ 3-Pack Ultimate Dry Sacks. These are amazing! I hiked up a waterfall in Jamaica with my camera in the blue bag and it was perfectly dry when we got to the top!|
So now, I have more things to give away! I’ll make it really easy, the first six people to comment on this post will get a set mailed to you – what a deal!
Also, Brian sent me a link to this article last week about people who competitively collect countries like you would baseball cards, I think you might like it too. Thanks for checking in, hope you’re having a lovely week!
