But there a twist.
Most giveaways I've seen around the blogosphere are the result of a marketing campaign focused on mommy bloggers and the power of word of mouth (unless you're Pioneer Woman and can afford to give away cameras and KitchenAid mixers and the like. Oh, to be PW. Oh, to have a stand mixer...). I have nothing at all against those who host giveaways or have review blogs, but I do sometimes get tired of feeling like I'm "being sold" each time I visit a blog.
What makes this giveaway different is that the winner will have their choice of prizes, the prize chosen will not be "sponsored" (nor will it come out of my pocket), AND there's a catch. Of course.
Up for grabs next week will be ONE of the following (one, people. ONLY ONE.):
- the 30-Day Shred with Jillian Michaels
- The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsay
The prize will be shipped from either Amazon.com or Amazon.ca (depending on where you live).
How am I able to do this without spending any money out of pocket? Thanks to SwagBucks! Since joining about a month ago, I've won enough SwagBucks for $20 in Amazon gift certificates. Like I said in my initial post about SwagBucks, no one will get rich using them. $20 in a month is no winfall. But it's giving me that chance to say a little thank you to all of you who read my blog. It's worth it.
Peter and I talked about getting Starbucks gift cards and taking
Peter knows how much I want to start doing the 30-Day Shred and he also knows me well enough to know that I'm going to need
I've heard it's HARD. And I'm scared.
But it's also only 20 minutes so I think it's totally doable.
So if you win and chose the DVD, you have to commit to doing the Shred with me and keeping me accountable/listening to me whine and cry about how much I'm hurting after not having excercised much in the last four years while I was busy growing THREE human beings. Deal?
If the winner opts for a copy of The Total Money Makeover rather than listen to me curse Jillian Michaels, we'll read the book "together" and be eachother's sounding board for thoughs, questions, and ideas about how to live debt free. TOTALLY DEBT FREE.
