Bloggers sometimes get a chance to offer their readers some interesting giveaways, courtesy of generous sponsors.  This week, I am going to run my first ever giveaway, for a $25 Sam’s Club Gift card, courtesy of  General Mills and Sam’s Club, through MyBlogSpark.

They are running a promotion while supplies last to give you 150 box tops for your school when you sign up for a Plus Membership.  Plus Memberships are much more expensive than the regular memberships, but you are supposed to receive discounts and benefits to make it worthwhile.  I could not tell you if it is worth it yet, since I only have a regular membership, but I will soon get a chance to try an upgrade and I am looking forward to seeing if it is worth it.   Look for an update in the future regarding how my Plus membership is working.

Through the end of the month, you can also find many General Mills products at Sam’s with 6 Box Tops on them.

Even if you don’t have kids, or kids in a school that uses Box Tops, I am sure you can find someone who can use them.  I am saving mine to give to a friend who still has kids in grade school.


To enter, leave a comment below telling me your favorite reason for shopping at Sam’s Club.  Contest will close on Thursday, August 12 at 11.59PM EST.    One reader will be selected through random number generation to receive a $25 Sam’s Club gift card.   I will announce the winner on Friday, August 13 by 5pm EST and contact them by email.  The winner will have 48 hours to contact me and provide their mailing details or their prize will be forfeit and I will select a new winner.  One entry allowed per household.  Must be at least 18 years old to enter.  US Entries only.   All comments must be approved, so please be patient in waiting to see your comment posted.

Required disclosure:  The gift card has generously been provided by Sam’s Club, General Mills, and MyBlogSpark and will be fulfilled directly by MyBlogSpark.  As part of this promotion, they have generously provided me with a $25 gift card for myself as well as an upgrade to a Plus Membership.  Any opinions expressed here are my own.
