Hopefully some of you remember our “Fall Cleaning Grab Bag” back in October. Well, we’ve accumulated another closet-ful of prizes, so we thought it was time for a “Spring Cleaning Grab Bag.” We’ll be giving away a prize a day to randomly selected readers who comment on the daily posts. That means there will be a ton of chances to win. We also may give away some extra prizes via email, through our Facebook fan page, or our twitter feed (@padsandpanels), so stay alert. We’ve got an incredibly kickass arsenal of prizes this time around (read below).
Everybody (meeting our usual guidelines) is eligible for this contest, but you can only win once in this series of giveaways. As we pick winners by various methods, we will allow those winners to each pick one (1) item from what is left of the following list of items for a prize. Remember, though, we will be picking winners all week, so if we email you the list, don’t hear back, and a later winner has already picked your hopeful prize, you’ll wind up stuck with what’s left. Is that clear?
One winner will be chosen at random from all of the entries received each day, determined as 12:00 a.m. from the start of any given day, to 11:59 p.m., Central Standard Time. You can earn one entry per post by offering a substantial comment (i.e. not “first,” substantial as determined by staff) on each post made during the given day (including this one) before the deadline for each portion of the contest. For example, Monday’s prize will be given to someone randomly chosen from entries earned by commenting on Monday’s posts. In response to this post, please tell us what you’re playing or reading right now and how you feel about it. Today, and today only, readers can also earn an entry by commenting on Friday’s One Year Anniversary Pondering Post. The “grab bag” contest” will end at 11:59 p.m. CST, Friday, April 9. There will be additional opportunities to win prizes during the time period, though, so stay alert.
