Fun Giveaway: Lunch is On Me!

I hope you have had as much fun during Giveaway Week as I have.  This is my last giveaway for this week as one of my giveaways fell through.  This last giveaway is sponsored by me!  I started this blog a little over a year now.  It has always been my purpose to provide money saving tips and offers to help you stretch your household budget.  Over the past year this website has grown immensely and I have gained a lot of new readers.  I would love for you to help me gain even more readers through word of mouth.

In this giveaway I am giving away three gift cards: one for $15 to Subway, one for $10 GC to the restaurant Bucca di Beppo and one GC for $5 to MacDonalds.  There will be three winners to this giveaway.

All you need to do is:

  1. Tell your friends and family about Common Sense with Money.  To enter this giveaway you need to email five (or more if you wish) people you know and tell them about this blog and how it has helped you.  You can use the little message I suggest below, or you can share with them your own testimonial.  Then come back and leave me a comment telling me you have emailed five people you know.

Please remember to leave your name and email address in your entry. I need to have a way to contact the winner. Entries with no contact information will be considered invalid.

This giveaway ends Tuesday 2/17 at 9 PM CST. At that time I will select three winners at random using The winners will be contacted immediately and will be given 48 hrs to contact me back with their mailing address.

I have started writing down your site on bright paper and keeping them in with my coupons, so I can give everyone the site address and not loose it. I want everyone to know how great your blog is!!!! Keep up the great work!

    Happy to help spread the word. I emailed a ‘baker’s dozen’ – and then I personally sat down with 2 friends in the area and showed them how to use this (and other) sites. They were amazed! Sometimes we need to show friends the site – and how EASY it is to save money – to get them inspired. Works like a charm.
