First of all, I'd like to congratulate Natalie, who won the GiveCard from last week's drawing. She says, "I would donate to Guide Dogs for the Blind... my mom is on her second dog from them, for 15 years she has been able to "see" with the dogs. Amazing."
This week's giveaway is a gift card from SnapGifts. If you live in Boston, Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York or San Francisco, you can get a gift card to one of your favorite local businesses. For people in other metropolitan areas, they offer gift cards from national brands.
Some cards are available to be e-mailed immediately; most are traditional plastic gift cards that are mailed to the purchaser or recipient. It's a new company, so some of the markets have limited gift card options, but there's lots of potential for additional local restaurants and stores to join in.
The entrepreneur who started SnapGifts is a friend of mine, and I'm delighted that the company is providing me with a $25 SnapGifts card at no charge to give away to one lucky winner.
To enter, just comment on this post and tell me which company's gift card you would choose if you won. Deadline to enter: Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at midnight. I've been looking over the Kansas City and Lawrence, Kansas lists and I can say I would have a seriously difficult time choosing from all of the great restaurants and shops.
