2016 Song of the Year Amazon Gift Card(s) Giveaway!!! #SOTD

This years’ Song of the Year list is just about complete, and that means it’s time for our second annual #AvisTravels giveaway contest. This is the fourth year that I am doing the list (third on this site), and it always provides some fun (and arguments).

Complete the form below and submit a list of my Top 10 songs of the year.

The person who guesses the most correct songs will win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.
If the winner guesses all 10 songs correctly, in any order, they get a $25 Gift Card.
If all 10 songs are guessed correctly in order the prize goes up to $50!

And just like last year, if we get 10+ entrants (or 25+ entries) the Top 2 entries win!

I’ll give the same hint as I gave last year: Think how I think. Consider what music I like and what I’ve used in the past, and remember that in order to qualify the song MUST HAVE COME OUT IN 2016.

As the entrants from last year know, I am great at giving hints if you ask for them after your submissions, and last year all multiple entrants walked away with a gift card!

Disclosures: Multiple entries are allowed (up to 10, any remaining ones will be disqualified) and  in the event of a tie, monies will be split amongst the winners. Contest ends when Top Songs of 2015 post goes live!

Amazon Gift Card(s) Giveaway!!! #SOTD #AvisTravels

As the year is coming to an end I have already been hard at work on my annual Top Songs Of The Year list.

This year I am running a promo and the winner gets a $10 gift card, with potential for up to $50 winners as well!

All you have to do is simple:

Complete the form below and submit a list of my Top 10 songs of the year. The person who guesses the most correct wins $10.

If someone guesses all 10 songs correctly (in any order) they will win $25!

And if you guess all 10 in the proper order, you can win $50!

UPDATE: If we get 10+ entrants (or 25+ entries) the Top 2 entries win!!

Here is a hint: Think how I think. Consider what music I like and used last year as a hint for what the results could look like this year.
Also remember that to make the list, the song had to come out in 2015.

Disclosures: Multiple entries are allowed (up to 10, any remaining ones will be disqualified) and  in the event of a tie, monies will be split amongst the winners. Contest ends when Top Songs of 2015 post goes live!

More Giveaway Ideas

Last week Wednesday I discussed possibly running a promotion/giveaway, and by Friday I realized why it would never work…

I was able to come to the conclusion that the best “prize” would be a gift card, preferably to something that anyone, anywhere, can use.

But the lack of responses, is exactly the flaw with the idea.

Sure, I’d love to give the one person that replies a gift card…but the whole purpose would be to get multiple people involved, including (hopefully) new followers.

This thought process still needs more work…and as usual, any suggestions are always welcome.

Happy 1st Day Of Hanukkah – #AvisTravels Free Giveaway?

Tis the 1st of 8 days of Chanukah. And what better time to give out gifts then during the time when people assume we are given 8 days of presents (thanks Adam Sandler for setting the ridiculous standard everyone thinks we keep).

As such, I want to run a promotion, with a giveaway like free Yankees or Mets tickets or even an iPod Shuffle.

But in the past, when I’ve given away free things I’ve had all of one or two entries, which isn’t enough to run a giveaway.

So I’m asking you, those who would actually win the item, what would you like to win?
What would encourage you to enter?

If not, it’s a lot easier for me 🙂

#GivingTuesday – Explained and Some Helpful Links

After spending a ton of money on Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, it’s time for all of you to donate to charity on Giving Tuesday. The point is to take the money you saved on those days and give it back to people and organizations who can use it wisely.

Many organizations are running deals for Giving Tuesday, if you donate to them you can be entered to win products or matched donations.

There are websites devoted just to today, such as GivingTuesday.org, and if you read some of the articles they provide,  you’ll find pushes to make it a Nationally Recognized Day.

Here are a few ways you can give today and get the most out of your donation:

  • The Gates Foundation will be matching donations, up to $200K all-day, for the Shot@Life foundation, which helps give immunizations around the world.
    LINK
  • The NASCAR Foundation will be giving free raffle entries for a Dale Earnhardt Sr. Prize Pack to anyone that donates more than $35. This organization is “dedicated to helping children learn how to win, both inside and outside of the classroom, through a variety of educational opportunities.”
    LINK
  • (RED) and Bank Of America are teaming up to triple your donation! For every Dollar you give, BofA will give 2 Dollars. (RED)s goal is raising awareness and funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa.
    LINK
  • I will be matching donations today as well, details in a second. My friend Tova Medetsky will be running a half-marathon for charity (Yachad, an organization which provides services for individuals with special needs), and she is raffling off an iPad Mini for charity.
    All the details on the raffle are here, and I will be matching all raffles bought today, up to $500!

#AvisTravels Giveaways

I am considering running promotions and giveaways, to promote traffic to the blog and my Twitter account…

What sort of things would draw you in to a promotion? Would it be tickets to sporting events? iPods? Tourist attractions?

Or maybe something entirely different?

Please comment on here or via Twitter or email.

And just know, to my two or three loyal readers, that the more feedback I get, the more likely free things will be given away!

So spread the word, and let’s see what we can make happen 🙂
