24-hour Give Away: $50 Macy’s Gift Card

September 4th, 2011 by Stephanie O'Dea

September 5, 7am. This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered! Our grandprize winner (randomly chosen) was Natalie D. Congratulations, Natalie! I’ve got more fun stuff on the way throughout the whole month, and do have a few more giftcards. Happy Labor Day!

Happy Sunday!

I like getting my holiday shopping done super early (the goal is by Halloween, but sometimes that stretches to Thanksgiving) so I can relax and enjoy the festivities. I’d like to help you to get your shopping done and over with too— and take advantage of the fall and back to school deals by giving away a $50 gift card to Macy’s.

maybe the holidays are too far away for you to think about? perhaps you have a wedding or birthday gift you’d like help purchasing? or something for yourself?

no problem. Free money is free money.

Good luck!
