Sweepstakes Title/Link
- Second City - Avelle 5th Anniversary Sweeps

Prize(s) - $250 Avelle gift card

End Date - May 12, 2009

Entry Frequency - 1x per blog

Simone's Thoughts - I love, love, love Kate Spade. Alas, I am not wealthy enough to afford her all the time. Avelle (or Bag, Borrow, or Steal) allows you to look the part without paying the price. There are nine different blog comment sweeps (this is one of them,) so on each post make sure you visit the other blogs to enter. This week they are having a price cut on all their rentals. So if you think you can keep a bag clean enough to borrow it, check them out. They also have an outlet for those of us who can't. Keep in mind they are designer purses though, so while they are only gently used, they are still not $20.


Easy peasy...

- In Touch Weekly Sweeps

Prize(s) - varies by week

End Date - varies

Entry Frequency - daily per person

Simone's Thoughts - While most of you are probably entering on Madberries now (at least you should be) you may not know of this one. Just another way to enter sweeps really easily. A lot of the sweeps are prize packs like the ones pictured above. Just be aware of the ARV & judge whether the taxes will be worth it.


I'm just a girl..

Sweepstakes Title/Link - Luxaholics Coach Giveaway

Prize(s) - Glimmer Patent Crossbody in blueberry

End Date - May 4, 2009

Entry Frequency - 1x per household

Simone's Thoughts - For all my bluff and hard assness (I know its not a word - but I'm using it,) I'm really just a prissy girl on the inside. I love me some designer handbags even if my cheap side (thankfully) out votes my girly side 99 out of 100 times. Free makes every part of me giddy though!


Batteries not included

Sweepstakes Title/Link
- Advanced Auto Parts Battery Giveaway

Prize(s) - Optima car battery (1 per day)

End Date - May 16, 2009

Entry Frequency - daily per person

Simone's Thoughts - Not the most exciting prize, but I'm pretty sure most of us could use a new car battery. You have to enter every day if you want to be included in that days drawing - entries do not roll over from day to day. BTW - am I the only person who remembers this movie?


Sweat equity is all most people have left...

- Orbitz New Zealand Sweep

Prize(s) - 7 day/ 6 night trip for 2 to New Zealand from San Fran or LA

Simone's Thoughts - At an ARV of $4200 this is one of the cheapest trips to New Zealand I've ever seen, but I'd take it.


Green is the new black...

Sweepstakes Title/Link
- Reynolds Wrap Go Green Sweep

Prize(s) - dishwasher, fridge, $1400, & some other stuff

End Date - May 29, 2009

Entry Frequency - weekly per person

Simone's Thoughts - Here is a bonus, if you go here on April 22, you can print out a rebate for free Reynolds wrap. You can buy it later, but must print out form on Earth Day. As a side note, I really am tired of all the "new black" statements, but its Earth Day, so why not. Great sweepstakes to move yourself towards a greener tomorrow.

End Date - April 26, 2009

Simone's Thoughts - A trip to the Galapagos is DH & I's one exception to the ARV rule. Now it is a high ARV to take these trips, but they are trips of a lifetime!

You are the Last Dragon....

Sweepstakes Title/Link - G4 Ninja Sweep

Prize(s) - 50 inch plasma, xbox 360, & a crapload of martial arts movies

End Date - April 27, 2009

Entry Frequency - 1x per person

Simone's Thoughts - As upset as I am that Hollywood continues to insist upon remaking every crappy movie I love (Clash of the Titans, Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon) I still love prizes. I am also a kung fu movie nut, so this prize is right up my ally. Next thing you know they will remake Black Belt Jones & Ricky Oh - sigh.


Rachael Ray (said in the tone of Flava Flav!)

Sweepstakes Title/Link
- Rachael Ray Sweeps

Prize(s) - varies - cash, trips, electronics, food

End Date - June 7, 2009

Simone's Thoughts - Great odds (even though it will be a highly publicized sweep.) She is really giving away a lot of high quality prizes - why wouldn't you enter?


Win a freaky car!

Sweepstakes Title/Link - NBC Nissan Cube Giveaway

Prize(s) - Nissan Cube

End Date - May 4, 2009

Entry Frequency - 1x daily per person/ email

Simone's Thoughts - I'm not much on the "cube" cars. The Scion & Elements don't really enchant me with their boxy style. The wind blows these cars all over the road & growing up riding in a Volkswagon Vanagon, I think I've had my share. That being said, I wouldn't turn it down if you gave it to me for free.

Entry Frequency - 1x per person

Simone's Thoughts - Ok, so this isn't exactly fashion, but just think what you could buy with $4500! That Bulga bag you've been coveting - yours. Those Oliver Peoples sunglasses - already on your face. The difficult part is not paying off bills with it, but at least buy yourself something if you win!
