Let's Make A Deal Giveaway!!!

It's a Let’s Make A Deal themed giveaway!

Remember how Monty Hall used to go up to random people and say, I’ll give you $100 if you show me a red sock in your purse right now! Well, I haven’t figured out a way to make this work (for this contest) and I don't have $100, but I will give away more chances to win if you have something specific…

Ultimately, there will be three winners names. And sorry to my int'l friends but this one is only open to U.S. folk.

There are three prizes…to be announced next Tuesday evening when I announce the winners. It’s like entering a contest for a mystery prize!! I’ve already said that the prizes are from Target, cause everyone loves the store…a little more hint is that one of them involves the word “paper.”

Wait, maybe I already said that already too.

Regardless – prizes to be listed on Tuesday evening. Just to give you a heads up, so you don’t expect a 1979 green Pinto, the value of the prizes are about $20-40 each prize.

And just like in the real Let’s Make a Deal game, there is always a gag gift (maybe not valued at $25).
And just like in the real Let’s Make a Deal game, you don’t know what you will get until the door opens.
And just like in the real Let’s Make a Deal game, you will be chosen at random to be a winner.
And just like in the real Let's Make a Deal game, you can only win one time.

This is where things start to go a little different.

We’re going to make it interesting….you have a chance to be entered into the drawing 15 times maximum!

If by some chance, there are only three people that enter, and you have 15 entries of your own---that’s great odds for you!! (I’m sure there’s some way to mathematically calculate your odds, but it’s been a long week and I’m not up for math problems)

So how do I get my name entered 15 times, you ask?

Here’s how you can increase your odds of winning:

1 entry for commenting on how much you love me and/or my blog. – Easy.
2 entries for following – this is really easy to do, just look to the right sidebar and find where it says “follow.” – Easy.
3 entries for posting a blog about the contest – sorry, you must have a blog for this one.
4 entries if you have met me in real life.
5 entries if you’ve ever blogged about Kirk Cameron – see above apology. You must have posted the blog prior to March 20th – and don’t postdate your posts, cheaters!
6 entries if you’ve blogged in the past (prior to March 20th) and included a link to my blog, for any reason. – see above comment where I call you a cheater!!
7 entries if you’ve got a picture of you playing "real" bingo, no kids version, real bingo. – you can email it to me. Address is in my profile. But note that I will publish them later (unless you really beg me not to).
8 entries if you are a single mom of a 16 yr old. (single mom love!!!) - showin some single mom love, but not just any single mom love - Sympathy sixteen-yr old-having-single mom love.
**Yes, you can possibly have more than 15 entries, but that’s not really fair and that’s too much work on my side.

For each entry possible above, please list as a separate comment so there’s no chance of me missing any. So make one comment for blogging about Kirk, another for having met me. Please include your link if you get extra entries for one.

FUN!!! This is like a scavenger hunt!!!

I can’t wait to see how many entries we have. I’m sure it will be thousands and I’ll probably have to take a day off work and invite three friends over to help me cut the entries up and put them all in a big hat.

Oh, and that’s just the beginning!!!
THEN----next Tuesday night, winners are drawn and the reader participation portion begins!!!

On Tuesday night, I’ll send an email out to the winners and let them know.
THEN, the poll will go up on Wednesday morning, the readers - YOU- will get to vote on which person receives which prize.

BUT, Monty Hall doesn’t tell you what the prizes are, and neither does Kaylen. I’ll have pictures of the prizes, but you won’t know what is behind each door and you will just vote for each person to get a specific “door.” And THEN….(still with me?)….then, next Friday night – we’ll have the big unveiling of prizes!!!

READY TO PLAY …… Let’s Make a Deal!!!

  1. Oh crap. This is all so intense and now I find myself so mad I'm married and I have a three year old because dammit I want 8 entries. Sigh!

  1. Okay and I am following you now too.

    I have never posted about Kirk Cameron though, but can I have an honorable mention for posting about my love for Johnathon Taylor Thomas....no. Well fine. Whatever. Phooey

  1. Oh, wow, I'm not sure what to do here. I kind of lost the map after reading about Kirk Cameron. Huh? Wasn't he...? Yeah, I think so. Okay, I just like the mysteries of this contest and the hilariousness of the rules.
    I'm in!

  1. I love your blog like I love a fresh lemon bar first thing in the morning.

    Now I wish I would have had someone take my picture back when I was addicted to playing Bingo at my mother in-law's company picnic every year. =)

  1. Anne said...:

    I am brand new to your blog. I have enjoyed it very much. I must say, your contest sounds complicated. I don't think I could handle the complicated execution.


  1. Nat said...:

    I know you in person, have a picture of me playing bingo (it's already on your blog and I don't know how to attach), and I love you! :)

  1. Mom said...:

  1. nancyg said...:

    oh - it worked - so now posting to say - i think i'm supposed to mention something about bingo - and you might even have photo evidence that i was there with you?
