Post in the comment field below to enter the sweepstakes!
*EDIT* – We’ll be doing our drawing later tonight (midnight PST rather than GMT) - which means I get to be up at 3:00am picking a winner! But that’s okay! This means I’ll keep the post open until then so you can enter RIGHT UP TIL 12:00am Pacific Standard Time! Then I’ll post the winner when I get into the office tomorrow along with a new post concerning our next Monthly Sweepstakes! Thanks for being patient with us as we work on this!
Have you ever tried to make a smoothy in your blender only for it to whither and fail when you threw in big chunks of ice? And then wonder how those blenders at those smoothie chains could not only annihilate anything thrown into it with ease but also live up to the daily abuse?
Wonder no more! Blendtec is here to solve all your blending needs with their 1560-watt food-destroyer!
If you want to liquify all your foods so you can drink your dinner through a straw, make snow from ice, or finally blend that annoying smoke detector (I call them a 9-volt battery slowly-drainer) you’ll finally be able to do it all. I’d be worried about having too much fun blending things that AREN’T food in here! Then again I’m kinda nuts sometimes.
Seriously, this is the most beastly blender that you can get without registering it with the Department of Defense.
I’m sure many people remember our initial issues with our Kindle Fire sweepstakes (I’ve been told that all the entries have been added correctly, by the way). It’s clear to us that we’ll need to work on our sweepstakes system for the monthly’s to keep that from happening again. But the last thing we want to do is remove a potential prize! So what we plan on doing is much simpler: we’ll be posting our monthly sweepstakes on the blog and anyone who comments on the blog will be entered into the sweepstakes that way. Luckily, you get to save your GVs for the Daily and Weekly sweepstakes that won’t change.
We’re limiting it to one entry per household to combat the potential “create fake accounts to enter” issue. Just an FYI.
This will hopefully only be temporary as we do some infrastructure work this coming year but it’s the fairest way we can think of in the interim. This change will take place after the Kindle Fire has been drawn and awarded.
But since the New Year coincides with the weekend, that means the Kindle Fire entries will be cut short unfortunately as we need to make sure this change goes live while we’re still in the office with people to troubleshoot it. It’s not the best situation and I apologize.
We thank you for your continued support and patience! And this next one will be a doozy, just you wait!
Our enthusiastic members have been sharing their favorite recipes with us and I hope everyone has been enjoying them so far. Don’t forget that if we publish your recipe, we add 5,000 GVs to your account – so please send those recipes in!
Today’s delicious recipe comes from Gamesviller Boje119!
Boje119 shares why this recipe is so special, “I always make this during the holiday season and I don’t dare get this recipe out early (have to hide the ingredients too!) or my family insists I make it NOW! It’s so easy to make and very tasty. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.”
We had another two recent winners this holiday weekend! Forensic.feline of Lonoke, AR won $1,503 playing Three-Eyed Bingo on Christmas Eve (12/24) while Nolimitz336 of Buffalo, NY scored $974 playing CatchUp CoverAll just today (12/26)! Way to go ladies! That’s enough money to buy yourself 3,300 candy canes.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! It’s already Christmas here on the East Coast and it’s already the fifth day of Hanukkah! Kwanzaa begins tomorrow! Whether you celebrate a holiday at this time of year or just use it as an excuse to visit friends, family, or relax we all hope you have the best of times!
