Announcing the...
:banana01: 2nd Annual GottaDeal.com Holiday Gift Card Giveaway :banana01:


With the holiday shopping season here, we thought we'd help you out with your shopping once again this year :)

Every other Tuesday from October 17th through December 12th, we are going to give away two $25 gift cards from major retailers. These are physical (not virtual) gift cards.

We are going to use our GottaPoints system to handle this giveaway. If you check the GottaPoints Store, you will see that we have the first two gift cards listed. The available gift cards will automatically change every other Tuesday at noon PT. Here is the order:


October 17th - Linens-N-Things - Winner: Mara
October 17th - Staples - Winner: Missy
October 31st - Kohl's - Winner: hpowers
October 31st - Barnes & Noble - Winner: mywarmbluefleece
November 14th - Circuit City - Winner: SuperMommy
November 14th - Old Navy - Winner: Great Dane Mom
November 28th - Wal-Mart - Winner: happysunshine28
November 28th - CompUSA - Winner: bayhaysay
December 12th - Target - Winner: treasure60
December 12th - Best Buy - Winner: freesia39


Each drawing will have a maximum of 5,000 entries available. Each entry will cost you 50 GottaPoints.

Now that you know the order and which stores are part of this giveaway, you can plan ahead as to which stores you'd like to try for. You can also use the number of entries left in the store to tell how popular each drawing is and what your odds will be.

You can choose to put all of your efforts into one drawing, or spread out your entries over multiple drawings (or all of them) if you'd like. Unlike last year, you will only be able to purchase entries during the 2 weeks (1 week for the first two cards) prior to that particular drawing.

The deadline for purchasing entries for each drawing will be noon Pacific time on each of the Tuesdays listed above. The winner will be selected via a random drawing later in the day on Tuesday and announced here on the forum. I will the contact the winner via PM, so make sure you have your PMs turned on. If a card goes unclaimed after 10 days, it will be given to another winner chosen randomly from that contest's entries.

You must be a registered member on the forum and have at least 50 GottaPoints to participate in this giveaway. If you have not yet registered, please click here to do so.

For more information on GottaPoints, see this thread.

If you have any questions or comments about this giveaway, please reply to this thread :)
