Christmas DVD Giveaway

For anyone of my generation, one of our most cherished Christmas traditions is the annual viewing of the Rankin/Bass animated classics.

Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and, my personal favorite, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Back in my day, we had one shot at watching these shows. No videos, no DVD, not even 24-hour Rankin/Bass marathons on cable. They were broadcast over the air on one night, and that was it for another 365 days.

Now, it’s all different. Our Christmas entertainment is instantly available to us, and the communal experience of watching Bumbles bounce is a thing of the past.

I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.

What is good, is that I have a couple of awesome DVD box sets to give away!

The good people at DreamWorks Classics have provided copies of some old classics and some new classics for my readers.

First off, the Original Christmas Classics, featuring Frosty, Santa, and Rudolph. You know these shows. They’re timeless. It wouldn’t be the holidays without them.

Next up are the new guys. Shrek, Po, and Toothless. These will be the timeless classics for my kids’ generation. This glittering box set includes Shrek The Halls, Merry Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda Holiday, and Dragons Holiday: Gift of the Night Fury as well as bonus features including games, music videos and more!

Some lucky winner will receive BOTH of these DVD box sets! All you have to do is leave a comment right here on this post. It’s as simple as that.

Once you own these shows, you never have to worry about missing out on the Christmas tradition!

I’ll pick a winner the first week of December. In the meantime, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Father’s Day “Steakcation” Giveaway

It’s a well known fact that 87% of all dads will be requesting a steak dinner in celebration of Father’s Day this Sunday.

Okay, so I made that up, but it sounds about right. If you’re a dedicated carnivore like myself, visions of a big juicy steak are making your stomach growl right about now.

So, it’s a good thing LongHorn Steakhouse is offering one of my readers a $75 gift certificate in honor of Father’s Day. Yes, you read that right. $75. LongHorn doesn’t just want you and your family in the door, they want to generously pay for the best items on the menu.

LongHorn Steakhouse takes this Father’s Day stuff seriously. They’ve proclaimed it to be a “Steakcation,” meaning that dads can take a break from the grill. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy a juicy and delicious steak with the family. Their “Steaks that Sizzle” promotion for $11.99, going on right now, includes a selection of three boldly-topped sirloins, each served with a hand-chopped salad.

LongHorn is also offering a great deal on a set of their signature, high-carbon steak knives as a gift-set available for purchase at all LongHorn locations for only $29.99. They sent me a set of these knives, and I’ll vouch that they are extremely well-made.

If you’d like to win the $75 gift certificate for LongHorn Steakhouse, simply leave a comment on this post, telling me how you like your steak cooked. Me, I’m a Medium Well guy. I will send it back if it’s not done right.

I’ll pick a winner next week.

In the meantime, have a very happy Father’s Day. Whether you’re grilling it yourself, or sitting down at your favorite restaurant, enjoy your steak.

Peanuts for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is this weekend. Although, really, for me every day is Father’s Day.

But it is kind of nice to have that one day to get breakfast in bed or a promise from the kids to stop their bickering for a few hours.

Planters wants to add to the festivities with an awesome giveaway.

They’re offering to send one of my readers a cool gym bag packed with goodies:

    Exercise mat
    Water bottle
    Mr. Peanut t-shirt and hat
    Samples of Planters NUT•rition Men’s Health Recommended Mix

I don’t know about you, but I think the Mr. Peanut shirt alone is worth taking a few minutes to enter this contest!

So, how do you enter to win? As always, I’ve kept it simple. Just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite healthy snack food is. I mean, besides the awesome Planters Men’s Health mixes!

I’ll pick a winner next week.

You Sunk My Battleship!

I must admit, I haven’t seen Battleship yet. The Hasbro board game was an old childhood favorite, but the new movie hasn’t had me rushing off to the movie theater.

However, YOU might want to go see it. For free. After enjoying a yummy Subway sandwich.

Yes, it’s time for another giveaway, this time from the good folks at Subway and Universal, who asked me to award one of my readers a $25 Subway gift card and a couple of free movie passes for Battleship.

So, here’s your chance to win! Just leave a comment on this post, telling me your favorite Subway sandwich. I’ll pick a winner next week!
