As most of you know, I’m an online contest addict. Sweepstakes, blog contests, promotional giveaways, you name it I enter, as long as I don’t have to pay anything or get spammed. (Note to all you contest junkies – opt out of further communication if you don’t want it! Or at least opt out when you get that first email newsletter.) I don’t do too badly either, I’ve won some nice stuff, although as yet no trips or giant cash prizes, not for lack of trying. But still, I enjoy getting freebies in the mail, even when I know they’re coming. So, when I was approached by CSN Stores about hosting a giveaway for a $40 gift certificate to one of their stores, I decided it was time that I give a little back. So without further adieu, I give you my first blog contest!

CSN Stores is a group of online department stores that apparently has EVERYTHING you could possibly want. They have furniture like headboards, dining room sets and cribs, they have home d├ęcor, housewares, baby and kid stuff, stuff for pets, home improvement items like faucets and fixtures, etc. etc. etc. etc. Like I said, EVERYTHING. They ship to the US and Canada, and advertise hassle free returns and free shipping on nearly everything. And you get to pick something for your very own! Sounds like a sweet deal to me, so head on over to CSN Stores or one of their 200+ other websites like, or


· You must complete Entry #1. If you do not, no other entries will count.

· You must leave a separate comment for each entry.

· Winners will be picked on 6/11/10 using or some other random method, which may or may not include my children drawing numbers out of a Thomas the Tank Engine lunchbox.

· Leave your email address in the body of your comment, but I suggest to protect yourself you use the format name(at)domain(dot)com

· I will contact the winner by email. If you do not respond within 3 days of my email I will draw another winner.

This contest is open to residents of the USA and Canada only, as that is the restrictions on shipping from CSN Stores.

To enter this giveaway, please go to CSN Stores and comment about something you would use your $40 towards.

Extra Entries will consist of shameless plugs for my adoption agency, A Gift of Hope Adoptions.

EE 1: Go fan (or Like or whatever they call it now) A Gift of Hope Adoptions on Facebook.

EE 2: Go to the agency website and tell me something you learned either about the agency or adoption in general.(There is a fantastic Blinkie in the sidebar for your linking pleasure also.)

EE 3: Give me an idea of free, cheap or easy ways to promote AGOHA.

That’s it, happy entering!
