DORITOS Assemble The Avengers Mail-in Sweepstakes at Target

Do you have any plans for May 1st,2015?
I do.
I’ll be pigging out on nachos while watching the new Avengers movie with my guys.
I’m a huge, huge, huge Robert Downey Jr Iron Man fan but my little guy is all about Thor and Captain America. I suspect my best half is on Team Black Widow (for obvious reasons!) but I bet you if I asked him he’d say he’s on Team Hulk (liar,liar, pants on fire!).

Anyway, whether you’re a huge fan of the Avengers or if your kids forced you to sit through the first movie and are now going to force you to sit through The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there is a sweet sweepstakes from Doritos and Target that you don’t want to miss out on – why? Because the prize is an Avengers replica prop from “Avengers: Age of Ultron” signed by Stan Lee!! If you don’t want it, you can just gift it to me – my birthday is just 5 months away and I’m accepting gifts as early as now :) …Anyway, here are the dets you need:

To enter without making a purchase, hand print your name, complete street address, daytime phone number, date of birth, and e-mail address on a 3″ x 5″ index card or piece of paper and place your entry into an outer-mailing envelope with proper postage affixed and mail it to:

Coppertone Polarized Lenses Mail-in Sweepstakes

I often hear people talking about their girl crushes.
Most of my friends go for Halle Berry – because you know, she’s Halle freakin’ Berry.
I think she’s gorgeous but she doesn’t make the cut with me.
My girl crush – rather girl crushes are Gabrielle Union and Mia Hamm.
Union because she looks like someone you could really count on to have your back in any situation and Hamm because in my opinion she is the best female football (soccer to you Americans) player ever.
I would give anything to tap into Mia Hamm’s brain for an hour.
Heck, I even have a list of questions I want to ask her….

…Like how it really felt like to watch Wambach destroy her record for player with the most international goals or how it feels to be named one of the best players on earth – in a sport that is so incredibly popular. OMG, I’m getting so excited thinking about all the questions I would ask her that I almost forgot to tell you that YOU – yes YOU can also get the chance to meet her in person in Vegas of all places. How? Courtesy of the Coppertone Polarized Lenses Sweepstakes.You can enter online or do it the mail-in way:

Mail In Method of Entry: Find an official entry form at participating Vision-Ease retail locations, while supplies last, and print your full name, address (including city, state/providence and zip/postal code), daytime and evening telephone numbers (including area codes), date of birth and e-mail address (optional), and mail it in an envelope with proper postage affixed to:

Marriott Mobile Check-in Mail-in Sweepstakes

I’m a hotel snob.
When and if I have to stay at a hotel, I totally “profile” various hotels based on the cleanliness of the rooms, the professionalism of the employees and just the overall feel of the hotels in question.
Then I make a decision about which hotel to book a room in.
Being a germaphobe, most hotels never pass my “test” BUT the Marriott has always passed my “profiling test” which is why its one of my go-to hotels when I travel.
It’s so worth it by the way and if you don’t believe me then the Marriott Mobile Check-in Sweepstakes is your chance to experience life as a Marriott guest – you will be spoiled like crazy and when that happens, I want to hear about it!
You can enter to win a million Marriott reward points by either making a reservation at a Marriott property and using the app to check in while at the hotel or by going the mail-in route:

Enter by Mail: To enter without making a reservation at a Marriott property or using Marriott Mobile Check-in, hand print your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address, Rewards Account Number, and date of birth on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to
“Marriott Mobile Check-in,”
c/o HelloWorld, Inc.,
P.O. Box 5046, Department 818005,
Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5046, U.S.A.

Escape with Outlander Mail-in Sweepstakes

Happy April!!!
Did you get pranked today?
Did YOU prank anyone today?
The answer is no to both those questions on my end.
I have a love-hate relationship with this day because on one hand I love a really good prank (who doesn’t?) but on the other hand, I hate being on the edge all day long wondering if and when I’m going to be pranked.
I always breathe a sigh of relief when midnight comes along on April 1st because that means no more pranking!

You can breathe a sigh of relief now though because the sweep I’m blogging about today is no prank at all. You could win a trip for 2 to San Diego to attend the 2015 Comic-Con International: San Diego and you can get in by either entering online or simply sending in some mail entries (If you win, I want to see all the fun pictures!):

2. By Mail: On a 3” x 5” card, an eligible individual can hand print (in black or blue ink) his or her first and last name, date of birth, daytime telephone number (including area code), and email address and mail the completed card in a first-class postage-paid envelope to:

Promotion Headquarters,

Ben & Jerry’s “Taste Test” Mail-in Sweepstakes

One of my fondest memories growing up is of me hanging with my dad in the ice cream truck he used to drive.
To a child, that’s the most awesome job a parent can ever have because it means unlimited ice cream – and trust me, I ate so much ice cream during that one period that I literally made myself sick on some days (shhh don’t tell daddy that though!).

These days the only time I eat ice cream is during summer when my guy and I go on bike rides and stop in the middle of a random town to grab a cone or two.
He’s more of an ice cream fanatic than I am – he’ll seriously drown a pint of ice cream in one sitting!
My guy eats ice cream in Fall, Spring, Summer and Winter.
I’m not kidding.
He’ll eat ice cream in the middle of winter and act like its the most normal thing ever!

That love affair he has with ice cream is the reason I know he’ll be the perfect candidate for the new Ben & Jerry Taste Test sweepstakes. Like the name implies, its all about sampling one or all of 40 Ben & Jerry’s flavors and then giving feedback on them! This works out great for us – he loves to eat ice cream and I love to give my opinion so this is going to be a fun couples activity for us!
If you want to get in on the fun too but can’t because you’re on a diet, there is a mail-in option:

By Mail: Write your first and last name, complete address, telephone number, date of birth, and e-mail address (optional) (all legibly hand printed) on a 3X5 piece of paper, place in a stamped envelope and mail to:

Ben & Jerry’s “Taste Test Sweepstakes”

Woodbury, NY 11797-0490.

2015 New Orleans & Louisiana Essence Festival Mail-in Sweepstakes

I quit Facebook.
I didn’t hit the “close account” button but for this year, I made a vow to myself not to update my Facebook page.
Last year I put so much of myself out there that when strangers started liking some personal pictures (of my little man), I went into total freak-mode and completely locked down all my pictures and then altogether decided to stop updating the world about my life on Facebook.
Let’s face it, who cares if while shopping in Kroger I came across the most delicious pint of ice cream?
Who cares if while at the post office, I happened to overhear a conversation between the clerk and a teenager who has absolutely no idea what stamps are?
No one cares about those things but me.
No one has to hear about them but my guy, and my real life friends and maybe my mom.
So, I quit Facebook.
I still have my account because I need it for work and I like to keep up with a handful of groups and occasionally chat with a few friends I’ve made along the way.
That’s the extent of my Facebook presence – and honestly, I’ve never felt better.
Now if only I could figure out a way to cut ties with twitter, that is my real weakness!

Another one of my weaknesses is a really dope festival – and no one does dope festivals like Essence Magazine.
Let me tell you something, if you have never been to the ESSENCE Festival, you are missing out big time because every single year they do it big and just when you think they can’t outdo themselves, they go and do it again but even bigger the next year.And now you too can get in on the action via the 2015 New Orleans & Louisiana Essence Festival Presented by Coca-Cola® Sweepstakes!

Method #2: To enter via US mail, mail a postcard with your name and address to:

The 2015 New Orleans & Louisiana Essence Festival® Presented by Coca-Cola® Sweepstakes,
c/o The US Sweepstakes & Fulfillment Company,
625 Panorama Trail, Suite 2100,
Rochester, NY 14625-2437.

Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel A Walk of Art Mail-in Sweepstakes

You know how some women have like 50,000 pairs of shoes?
I’m not one of those women.
I have less than 10 pairs of shoes – by choice.
I’m not a shoe person so if I find a comfortable pair, I wear it until I literally wear it out.
I’m sure this is something that nags my best half to death but he’s slowly but surely learning to accept it.
Whether you like shoes or not, chances are you’re familiar with the Dr.Scholl’s brand (if you’re not, google it). They want your input on some fabric design and they’re going to give you Walmart e-gift cards for your time.
**side bar – how awesome is it that they’re actually getting input from their clients and potential clients about the new Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel fabric design?**
You can vote for your choice online or enter via mail.

Western Union American Dream Snail Mail Sweepstakes

Stress.
There is no such thing as stress.
There are problems and those problems have solutions.
So what we call “stress” is really just a problem and if you think hard, you can find a solution to that problem.
That’s my brother-in-law’s theory about stress.
He shared it with me a few years back when I casually mentioned to him how stressed I was about a certain situation.
I didn’t agree with him then BUT ever since then, whenever I find myself going…”gosh I’m so stressed
I stop and think to myself – there is no such thing as stress.
Then I try and figure out what the problem is and then find a solution to whatever is bothering me.
My brother-in-law is a smart man – just don’t tell him I said that :)

Anyway, if one of the things “stressing” you out is cash – or the lack of cash and you want to win some $$$ then this sweep from Western Union is perfect for you. The grand prizes are $65,000 for a down payment on a home, $35,000 for tuition or $30,000 for a new car and you can get your hands on that money by completing a transaction on western union or by entering via mail:

Mail-in Entry: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. If you wish to enter the Sweepstakes without making a Qualifying Transaction, hand print your complete name, address, phone number, your “My WU” membership number and your email address (optional) on a 3”x5” piece of paper, insert into a #10 mailing envelope, affix appropriate postage and mail to:

realtor.com Kick‐Start Your Mortgage mail-in Sweepstakes

I wish you double of what you wish me
That’s a sentence I happened to catch in my Facebook feed the other day.
It was posted by a friend of mine who is clearly going through something but it also got me thinking…
…can you imagine how differently we would all behave and treat others if we knew that whatever we wished upon them would come back DOUBLE to us?
I bet you we’d all go around being nicer to people.
And wishing them well.
For example, I’d say to you – I wish you win this new sweepstake from realtor.com.
Why?
Because the prize is 40,000 cash to be used as a down payment on a home or to pay down a current mortgage.
Hopefully by making that wish for you, it’d mean that I get to win double that – and yes, I really could use $80,000!
See what I just did there? :)

80 Eighty Mail-in Sweepstakes

As a teen, my mom enrolled my sisters and I into a sewing class.
That was her way of keeping us occupied and out of trouble.
I thought it was the most uncoolest thing ever – until the teacher taught us how to make lingerie.
But that’s another story for another time (I do make kick ass panties though, just for the record!).
Anyway, if you know anything about sewing, you know it requires patience – lots and lots of patience because if you move too fast, you make errors – and me, well – my patience is a work in progress so I was always that student in the class who would press the pedal a little too hard and cause the sewing machine to go bonkers!
One day after almost tearing up her sewing machine, my poor teacher calmly told me “I hope you never learn how to drive because you’ve got a lead foot“.

I did learn how to drive.
I also learned that she was telling the truth – I do have a lead foot.
I have a warning ticket for doing 65 in a 45 zone and a speeding ticket for doing 90 in a 70 zone to prove she was right.
Those are just the two times I’ve been caught speeding.
I can’t tell you the countless times I haven’t been caught.
I’m not bragging by the way, I’m just owning up to a weakness of mine that, just like my patience, is a work in progress.

You know what else I have a weakness for?
Fast cars.
Like the Nissan Skyline GTR R32.
And if you love fast cars too or just classic cars then the 80 Eighty Giveaway is a perfect match for you.
They’re giving away a Custom 1989 Nissan Skyline GTR R32 worth 20 grand!!
Every $5 you spend on their site gives you an entry (they do have some pretty cool stuff) or you can enter via mail.

To enter without purchase, print your name, address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, telephone number, date of birth on a 3×5 piece of paper, insert in an envelope and mail to:

80 Eighty Sweepstakes,
P.O. Box 1207 Draper,
UT 84020.

Mail-in entries must be postmarked by August 14, 2015 and received by August 20, 2015. Limit one entry per mailing envelope, however, each envelope will equal five (5) Sweepstakes entries.
