What would you do with $50? Tell me for a chance to win!

I don't normally host corporate giveaways on my blog but this one was too much fun to pass up - the folks at CSN contacted me and offered to give one of my US or Canadian readers (or those with a US or Canadian address to use) a $50 gift certificate valid at any of their over 200(!) different online stores.

I was mulling it over and decided to head over to their website to see what they had on offer before making a decision. TWO HOURS later I was still surfing from one CSN shop to another, imagining where I'd spend the $50 if I won - would it be new pendant lighting for over the dining room table, or some kind of cute kitchenware (a girl can never get enough of that) or even an old school slip'n'slide for the kids to use at Grandma's house this summer? Ooh, or a purse? What about a new purse? Or maybe something for the hubs, he just had a birthday after all...

I figured if I could have that much fun just imagining what I'd buy, one of you could have a whole lot more fun actually doing it.

If you'd like a chance to be that lucky someone just have a surf around the CSN family of stores (follow the link above) and leave me a comment telling me what you'd spend your $50 on.

Follow me on Twitter or Facebook (links in the sidebar on the right) or tweet about this giveaway for extra entries. (To make each one count leave a separate comment for each one you do.)

The old random number generator will pick a winner at 10pm Israel time on March 8th - one week from today.

The winner will then have 48 hours to contact me to claim their gift code :).

Happy surfing!

Wow! What would I do with $50? Normally, I would say I would find something my kids need, but not this time. I think I'd find something I WANT! I may need some new clothes or fun stuff for our upcoming vacation. If I couldn't find something for that, I would look for kitchen gadgets.

I'd go right past GO and head towards Amazon and buy a book. That's what I'd do. Sadly I don't have Facebook or Twitter to follow you there. I tried FB but that site and I just didn't 'connect'. I finally gave it up.
