Toys R Us gift card giveaway!

Sharing is caring!

Ok, because I’m bored and because today is Friday the 13th, and because the stimulus package has been passed and because tomorrow is valentine’s day, I’m gonna do a giveaway.

Really, it’s because I’m bored today and feel like treating my buddies! So, you ready buddies?

I’m giving away a 15.00 Toys R’ Us gift card to one lucky reader. To enter, all you have to do is answer one question:

What would you buy YOURSELF at Toys R’ Us? Not your kids….not your Hubby…not your grandbabies…YOU! Are you a board game fanatic? Or would you use it towards a Wii, PS3 or X-Box 360 game? Are jacks your favorite? Maybe Uno is the game you rock at every family get-together? I’m just curious :o)

Please remember to leave your e-mail address in your comment as well. If I can’t contact you, how will I be able to tell you that you won? Hmmmm?

And for all of you lovelies that are visiting from Deal Seeking Mom and Money Saving Mom, I do giveaways a few times a month on here, so if you want to be one of the firsts to know about them, become one of my loyal followers! Join the party at the upper right hand corner.

Contest will end next Thursday, February 19th at 11:59pm.

Love ya’ll and Good Luck!

    I would buy myself a Wii game…not sure which one as I have been trying not to look at all the new ones since my husband has banned me from buying more games until I play the ones we have more!

    Trucks – it seems the boy can never get enough…LOL

    We gotta quit stealing each others ideas – I was going to do a give a way today…LOL – they are fun!

    I will wait until next week now 🙂

    I’m not very original, but I am also saving up to buy a Wii. I told my kid she has to get good grades and then I will buy one, but the truth is I really want one for me after I tried it out at someone’s house 🙂

  10. 2.13.09

    we really like games in this house. so probably something that looked fun.

  11. 2.13.09

    Hmmmm, I’d have to say Rummikub game. I used to play with my grandmother when I was little, she has since passed and we put the Rummikub game in the coffin, so she can play in Heaven 🙂 Okay now I’m crying….I’m such a baby! LOL

    Our Toys R US has a little “spa” section actually, with body stuff. I would probably spend $15 on that kind of stuff I don’t need if I had to spend it on myself. I want a wii game but they cost a lot more then that so I would get pamper me items.
