Treat Yourself to Something Special {giveaway}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 3, 2009

American Express gift cardGift cards are expected to top wish lists this Christmas season, and for good reason – the recipient can purchase whatever they desire. No more gifts that will sit in the closet, or end up re-gifted. American Express Gift Cards – one of the only universal gift card available with no fees after purchase – are available in denominations of $25, $50, $100, and $200, and are available in some very gift-worthy designs for purchase online and at over 70,000 retailers nationwide.

As we’re running about trying to fulfill the wishes of everyone on our gift list, we sorta forget about ourselves, don’t we? Well, first of all, make things easy on yourself and purchase some American Express gift cards and second, enter to win something for yourself! You’ll have a great chance to treat yourself to something special right here, because American Express is giving 10 From Dates to Diapers readers a chance to win a $50 AmEx gift card!

Here’s what you must do to enter:

  • Leave me a comment, by 9pm (pst) on December 11th, telling me about how you would treat yourself if you were to win. You may spend the gift card however you’d like, if you win, but I’m not looking to read altruistic entries… You MUST tell me how you would spend this $50 on YOURSELF!

For additional entries, daily, you may:

  • Link to this giveaway on your blog and/or Facebook wall. Be sure you leave me a separate comment for each link.
  • Tweet about this giveaway and include a link, using the hashtag #D2Dgvwy, as many times as you like before next Friday night, and leave me a separate comment for each tweet.

TEN winners will be selected at random, each to receive a $50 American Express gift card, good anywhere American Express is accepted. Winners will be emailed and will then have 24 hours to respond before forfeiting their prize.

Please note: I was not compensated in any way to host this giveaway. I simply could not pass up an opportunity to aid in blessing the lives of ten families during these hard economic times.

Be Sociable, Share!
