Surprise, Surprise!

OK, so are you ready to find out about the big surprise? What exactly do mail boxes and lame blogs have in common? Well, nothing really. But did I get your attention?

Thanks to CSN Stores, one lucky reader of Lame Adventures will win a $50 shopping spree to any of CSN Stores' 200+ online stores. CSN Stores offers everything, including furniture, home decor, housewares, outdoor items, baby and kid stuff, school and office supplies, shoes, bags, luggage, pet supplies, and health and fitness equipment. You can find everything from mail boxes to slipcovers to porch swings at http://www.csnstores.com/. CSN Stores is a one-stop-shop for just about anything you might need.



To enter: check out CSN Stores' 200+ stores and leave a comment to tell me what item you would use the $50 shopping spree to buy.

For additional entries (leave separate comments for each):

  • become a follower of Lame Adventures
  • post a direct link to this giveaway on your facebook status
  • blog about the giveaway; leave a direct link to your post in the comment

The winner will be selected by a random draw. Make sure your comment gives me a way to contact you if you win. If I can't get in touch with you, I'll have to select another winner!

The giveaway ends at 10:00 pm, central time, on Wednesday, January 27, 2010.

Due to shipping issues, the giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only.

Nobody paid me to say nice things about CSN Stores, but CSN Stores is giving one of my readers $50 worth of stuff. Lucky readers!

WOW - CSN Stores is awesome! Thank you for sharing the web site with your blog followers. I would use the certificate to obtain the AeroBed Overnighter Bed in a backpack with a battery operated pump to inflate and deflate in 60 seconds! Something I have wanted, but always needed the money for something else:) bkw

I would go shopping for baby stuff, please note: THIS IS NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT, I just have friends having kids and Im throwing 2 baby showers in the next couple months. After I did a bit of looking I decided children are too expensive, BUT a shopping spree fits quite nicely into the "I got them a nice gift and I dont have to feel guilty about it" category.
