Nationwide Give Away: $50 Gift Package from Tom’s Shoes

Have you met Tom? I first heard about Tom’s Shoes years ago through a friend at church.  Here is a brief synopsis of what I learned:

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by TOMS customers. (source)

As an American woman I tend to think of shoes as a right- to have less than 10 pairs of shoes in my closet would be absurd.  Yet many children around the world do not even have one pair of shoes.  So if buying a pair of shoes could help someone in need, I think I could make that sacrifice.

Now back in the day I have to admit Tom’s shoes weren’t very cool looking.  They have changed- ALOT.  There are some really cute shoes available!

I have a $50 gift pack from Tom’s Shoes to give to one lucky reader.  I don’t know what’s inside of it so it will just have to be a surprise to you and me both!

This Give Away is sponsored by Autism United– an organization “Fighting Autism Together To Raise Awareness.”

There are lots of ways to enter this Give Away.  For each one leave a seperate comment on THIS post.  Leaving info on Twitter or Facebook won’t count!

You must do one of these three to enter this Give Away (you can do all three for three entries):

1)  Visit Autism United for one entry.  Tell me what you learned about Autism and how you can be more aware of Autism in your community.

2) Follow Autism United on Twitter.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

3) Follow Autism United on facebook  (and you can tell them I sent you).  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

These also can be done for additional entries:

1)  Follow A Frugal Chick on Twitter.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

2) “Like” A Frugal Chick on Facebook.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

3) Leave a comment on this post telling me which of Tom’s Shoes you like the best.

4) Do a status update on facebook that says “I want to win the Tom’s Shoes Give Away from @autismunited and @AFrugalChick http://bit.ly/pkhTqH ” and then leave a comment here letting me know.  You can do this once a day.

5) Tweet “Win a $50 Gift Package for Tom’s Shoes @Afrugalchick @ autismunited http://bit.ly/pkhTqH” and then leave a comment here letting me know.  You can do this once a day.

This gives you LOTS of chances to win (you must be 18 years and older in the U.S.).  I will pick a winner on July 30th at midnight and e-mail them.  If I don’t hear back within 24 hours I will select another winner!

Nationwide Review and Give Away: Diaper Junction’s bumGenius 4.0 Cloth Diapers

When my sister told me she was going to use cloth diapers on my nephew I thought she was crazy.  I had spent most of my life using old cloth diapers to wash my car or scrub up stains in our carpets.  It seemed sort of old fashioned and a lot of extra trouble for no reason.

But she had done her research.  Articles like this one demonstrated the significant savings of using cloth over disposable.  Then she started showing me pictures on-line of the “new cloth diaper.”  They were so cute and looked like they were easy to take care of! 

After checking prices she decided the best place to buy her diapers was Diaper Junction.  They ship diapers worldwide but also have a store in Virginia Beach so she was able to pick up the diapers she ordered.  Plus they have a 30 Day Diaper Test – try select diapers and if you don’t like them Diaper Junction will give you the money back.   She has saved thousands of dollars by using cloth diapers and has gone back to Diaper Junction every time she needed something new (or just wanted a new color).  Each purchase that she makes saves her hundreds of dollars over traditional diapers- even with coupons.

My nephew (the cutest kid in the entire world) is now over a year old and my sister loves using cloth diapers.  I have never once heard her complain about them.  (She was the one who wanted me to work with Diaper Junction because they have always provided her with excellent service and products.) 

Diaper Junction now has a new benefit for their clients- a cloth diaper service.  You can have cloth diapers delivered and picked up at your doorstep!  There is no long term contract or set up fee and you can check out all the info here.  They also have a customer loyalty program called Stash Cash.  Each time you make a purchase in their online cloth diaper store, you earn 1 point for every dollar you spend – points are then redeemed for Stash Cash.  Points DO NOT expire and can be used for cloth diapers, diaper covers, and other cloth diapering accessories.

In conclusion my sister (and my nephew) highly recommend Diaper Junction

Now onto the good stuff- Diaper Junction has given me 2 bumGenius 4.0 diapers to give away to 2 lucky readers!  I had my sister review them today and she sent me a huge list of why she likes them:

1.  Good Sizing (fits newborns 8lbs-35+)  My son is 31lbs and it fits him with plenty of room to expand.
2.  Comes with two inserts.  I had him in this diaper for 3 hours with no leaks.  Very absorbant!
3.  Cute Colors!
4.  Can be used as a swim diaper.  Just use without the inserts.
5. Son has no trouble moving around in the diaper.
6.  Slim fit (not too bulky)
7.  Velcro fastener.  Makes the diaper fast and easy to put on during a diaper change.

Want to try them yourself?  Now is your chance to win a bumGenius 4.0 diaper!   There are five ways to enter this Give Away (you can enter up to 5 times):

1.  Leave a comment on this post.  Tell me why you would like to try cloth diapers.

2.  Like “A Frugal Chick” on Facebook.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you did.

3.  Like “Diaper Junction” on Facebook.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you did.

4.  Follow “Diaper Junction” on Twitter.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you did.

5.  Visit the Diaper Junction blog and leave a comment on this post telling me which article you liked the best.

This contest will run until June 30th.  At that time I will pick a winner and e-mail them.  If they do not respond in the next 24 hours I will e-mail another winner until I receive a response.

And remember you can always try the 30 Day Test Drive now at no risk! 

Good luck!

Disclosure: I did receive a bumGenius 4.0 cloth diaper to review for this post.  All that being said my sister wrote the review part along with the help of my adorable nephew.  So I just get points for being a great aunt.

Nationwide Give Away & Review: Nintendo Wii Game

As budgets continue to get tighter families are finding new ways to enjoy themselves at home instead of going out.  And one of the ways to keep your family entertained at home is to play games together.

Now there is nothing wrong with a good old fashioned game of spoons but sometimes you want to involve a little bit more technology.  And you don’t have to go broke to find fun games the whole family (at their various skill levels) can enjoy.

Nintendo (who is near and dear to my heart- my stomach still ties up in knots when I hear the words “I’m Sorry But Your Princess Is In Another Castle”) has decided to step up to the plate and help out by releasing their Nintendo Selects bundle of four classic games:

Wii Sports

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Mario Super Sluggers

Animal Crossing: City Folk

Each of them is $19.99- VERY affordable considering what I thought the games would cost.  Nintendo has their Wii Console Bundle for $149.99 and it comes with Mario Kart (oh my gosh so much fun!) and the matching Wii Wheel Accessory.   So for the cost of two family trips to the movies you can have your own games to play at home- and everyone has the best seat in the house.

I could not believe how easy it was to set up the Wii- I had visions of spending time pouring over books trying to figure everything out.  But it was very self explanatory and before long I was playing tennis against some little figures who beat me horribly in the first game (I promptly reset and smoked them in the next game).

There is another huge advantage to having the Wii- I have been trying to decide if I want to get rid of my cable television.  Did you know you can stream Netflix through the Wii (there are some additional charges)?  So the Wii may also be able to help me cut my monthly bills in addition to providing me with hours of entertainment.

Overall I give the Wii and The Nintendo Select Games two thumbs up!  So now it’s your turn: wanna try a game?

Nintendo has graciously provided me a copy of Mario Super Sluggers and I want to pass it along to one of my lucky readers!   This game is rated E for everyone and can adapt to the skill levels of everyone in your house!

There are five ways to enter this Give Away:

1.  Leave a comment on this post and tell me your favorite Mario character (if you don’t know one just tell me hi)

2.  Like ” A Frugal Chick” on Facebook and leave me a comment here letting me know

3.  Follow “A Frugal Chick” on Twitter and leave me a comment here letting me know

4.  Tweet about this give away and let me know by leaving a comment

5.  Post this giveaway in your facebook status and let me know by leaving a comment

I will pick the winner randomly on June 17th.  The winner will be e-mailed and have 24 hours to respond- if not a new winner will be selected.

Good Luck!
