Giveaway CSN Stores

I love doing giveaways, but as you all know, they don't happen that often on my blog.  I'm approached with offers, but sometimes I don't feel the product is right or I'm not impressed with the company.  I'm not going to tell you to go somewhere and buy something if I, myself, wouldn't do it.  When I was approached by CSN stores recently and asked if I'd be willing to do a giveaway, I went into research mode.  Is this a reputable company?  Do they overcharge for items?  Is shipping outrageous?

What I found is that they are a reputable company.  They take several reputable shopping sites and link them all together on their website.  The site is easy to navigate and you can shop for nearly anything from swing sets to  home furnishings and furniture and toys.  Some of the prices range in an area I'm usually not willing to pay, but most of the prices are reasonable and free shipping on most of the items was a definite bonus for me.  If I'm buying grapefruit spoons for $4 but it costs me $11 to have them shipped to me, I'm not so happy with that purchase.  Maybe I'm a cheapskate, but I believe in getting value for my money and that's what I found with CSN stores.

So here's the deal.  CSN stores is offering me the choice between doing a review and getting a $20 gift certificate, or letting one of you have a $20 gift certificate.  Although I found several items I'd like, I'd much rather pass this gift certificate on to one lucky winner.  This gift certificate is good towards ANY product in ANY store!  Yes, that includes clearance and sale prices!  I'm a clearance shopper and I had a blast looking through.  Now, if you're skeptical like me, you're probably thinking that this is a ploy to get you to spend your hard-earned money at their stores and that a $20 gift certificate won't cover anything but a pencil.  WRONG!  I found tons of wonderful items under $20.

So, how do you win?  It's easy!  First, leave a comment.  It's that simple.  If you'd like a second chance to win, go shopping!  Check out CSN stores and tell me what you might spend your $20 gift certificate on if you win!  Pretty easy, right?  I'll announce the winner on Friday, February 25.

Good luck and happy shopping!
