Okay, so yesterday's failed attempt at a pool/giveaway was unplanned, unorganized, unadvertised (?), UNSUCCESSFUL and late. :-P
The idea came to me while visiting Deal Seeking Mom, and chatting with other ladies there about the Old Navy weekly page to update. ON weekly is a "coupon hunting" page on OldNavy.com. You have to search around the page, and click on certain things, and if you click the right items, or do the right things with those items, you're rewarded with a savings certificate. Certificates range from $75 off of a $100, $50 off of a $100 purchase, 15% off your entire purchase, 30% off your purchase, ect. There are some really great coupons (obviously), but they go REALLY fast. To be the first one on the site when it updates is a big deal, as then you have a better chance of finding the $75 off $100 coupon (and there are only a limited number of coupons).
Sooooooo.... The owner of Deal Seeking Mom has a giveaway on her site yesterday that she was able to give away 10 $50 of $100 purchase coupons. (Courtesy of ON.) To enter the drawing, you had to comment on her blog. You could enter as many times as you wanted. This became a chat forum as people waited for the ON site to update.
A few people suggested (I'm sure mainly as a joke) that someone should start a pool as to when ON would update their ON weekly site. The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. The more I wanted to be the one to start it. Problem is, I didn't have anything to offer the winner of the pool. Certainly couldn't offer them an ON coupon or gift certificate. What do I have to offer??? LEGGIES!
I know that leggies aren't at all an ON gift certificate or coupon code, but they're something. And I know that they're a very specific size, but most people know SOMEONE who has someone of that size... Or they know someone who knows someone. Worse case scenario, sell them on eBay............
SOooooo......... If I can get myself together enough next time the ON site updates, I'll be offering this again. This is how it will work:
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd people to CORRECTLY guess the time and date of the ON weekly will win two (2) free pairs of leggies.
To enter, leave your guess as a comment on the blog titled "REAL GIVEAWAY FOR ON POOL." I'll link it up shortly. (Link now works.)
You must guess the correct time and date of the next update. (Remember to put your time guess with your time zone! I wouldn't want someone in CA to guess 12 PM, and not win because the site updated at 3 PM (EST).
Feel free to share this giveaway with others.
Don't forget to watch ON weekly for your chance to grab an AWESOME coupon! (And if you find one of the BIG coupons, feel free to share it with me! ;-) JK!... Kinda... ;-) )
Please, no more then three entry guesses per person. Thanks!
