DISCUSS BLACK FRIDAY THIS YEAR &

WIN GIFT CARDS TO THE STORE OF YOUR CHOICE!


We're giving several of you on the forum $100 gift cards for doing what you all love to do anyway - talk about Black Friday!

Here's how it works:

Through November 27th (at 11:59:59pm EST), every time you post in one of the Black Friday forums (such as this main Black Friday Discussion subforum, any of the store-specific subforums, Posted Black Friday Ads or Online Black Friday subforums) you'll earn one entry into the contest.

We're not going to require your posts to be a certain length to qualify or anything like that - we just want a lot of great discussion. We know there are times when a one-word reply is fine. All posts in all threads in these forums will count, including other contest threads.

Be aware that it's pretty obvious if someone is attempting to "game the system" by posting repeatedly to get more entries. If that happens, we will give you ONE warning via PM. If we see the behavior continuing, you will be disqualified from winning a gift card. I don't expect this to be an issue (it wasn't during the last few years), but I wanted to make it clear that myself and the mods will be watching for any abuse. Any member who is banned is obviously no longer eligible to win the contest either.

This includes posting multiple times in a row in a single thread when one post would be enough, replying to many threads with nothing but "thanks!", etc... as I said, it'll be obvious if anyone does this, so don't do it. There is plenty to discuss without having to cheat your way to more entries.

So create interesting threads, reply to other members' questions, give your opinions on everything that is being discussed. This is a discussion board - let's have some interesting discussion here!

On Tuesday, November 28th I will randomly select 5 winners from all eligible entries and each of you will receive a $100 gift card to the retailer of your choice!

 

And as a benefit to those who were here early this year, all the posts in the forums up until now will also count towards this contest. Also look for opportunities to earn double entries as we get closer to Black Friday.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to answer them.

Thanks for doing this again, Brad! And welcome to another busy Black Friday season! :)

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

That’s exactly why I was hoping Brad had it! It’s kind of hard to get excited when you can hardly see it.

Seems that way, but I look at it as getting 100 bucks back from a store where $100 was spent lol

Yes it's after the fact, but to be fair most people aren't even close to being finished shopping at that point. Many like myself are probably still out the day after Christmas picking up some things for holiday parties or next years stash lol.

$100 gift card is warranted anytime...especially after BF for me because chances are I already bought the majority of the gifts for everyone on my list so now I can buy for myself :gdclap:

Be sure to use the "import a photo from a url" option. The "upload from file" option will not work.
