Update: It's now December 1st and the club is closed to new entrants (so trying to sneak in with a post now won't work )
As of the end of November there are 68 members.
Two years ago we started a club for those who are able to post in a thread once per month all year long. The 2018 club winners received t-shirts. The 2019 club winners received tote bags. For 2020 we're bringing the club back with another new prize and this year you'll have a full month to join before the member list is frozen.
All you have to do to win is post in this thread at least once per month from now (November 2019) through October 2020. 12 months, 12 posts.
You can post as much or as little as you’d like. You could just post “I’m here” or give a 3,000 word monthly update on your life. It doesn’t matter. You can post more than once per month - feel free to reply to others or just be chatty in here. This is what happened the last two years and it was great to see everyone posting all year long.
Anyone successfully doing this will get a prize next year. No random drawing, no luck needed. But if you miss a month, you’re out. Hopefully you stick around a little longer than the 6 seconds it takes to post each month, but that’s up to you.
For the purposes of this contest, each month starts on the 1st at midnight Central time. Also, posts in this thread will not count towards any other Black Friday forum posting contests in 2019 or 2020.
As for the prize for this year, it will be a special GottaDEAL Prize Club enamel pin!
Because we're starting this club on the 1st as opposed to late in the month as we did the first 2 years, I expect a lot more members this year so I wanted to choose a prize that wouldn't break the bank, especially with shipping costs (shipping on those tote bags killed me haha). The enamel pins will have a great design that will feature the year and note that you're a member of this exclusive club.
They won't be available anywhere else and are the first pins we've ever done for the site. Pins have become very popular over the last few years and I wanted to finally make a GD one so this is how we're going to do it. During the year I'll ask for ideas from club members for the pin's design as well.
Good luck and let the posting begin!
