$100,000 Giveaway starts NOW!!

Coupon Blogger Contest

I entered to “Bring Home the Bacon!” in the new HUGE contest from Cheap Sally, and I REALLY need your help!!

Here’s how it works:

The winner of this amazing contest gets a job finding and sharing deals with Cheap Sally, plus a H-U-G-E prize- $100,000 cash! Wow, right?

What a blessing that would be…

To win, you have to get the votes.

So, to vote for me, all you have to do is click on the logo, and you’ll be taken to my personal profile. You can read more about me, and then give me a vote. To vote, there is a big pink bar under my profile pic, and you just click that great big ol’ heart to vote!

You can vote for me once a day, if you’re super nice! I’d LOVE a chance at that $100,000 salary for the year!!!

Round 1 Ends October 31st:

I can spread the word, and you can vote for me in this Round 1 until October 31st…. At that time, the top 5 contestants from each state go on to Round 2, which lasts through November 30th… Then the REAL fun of the competition begins! The finalists have to compete in some online shopping challenges, and that helps to determine the winner of the $100,000!!

If you’re a fan of Sunshine and Sippy Cups, and really want to help give me a boost, here are some things that you can do to help:

  • Use the social buttons on my profile page at Cheap Sally, to tweet out my page, and to “like” my profile! You can also copy and paste the link to your Facebook page, and tell people more about me.
  • You can also use MY social buttons to share this blog post on Twitter, Facebook, and Stumble Upon… Anything that helps me get my page out there! The more people who see my profile, the more people who might like it enough to vote :)

I enter a lot of “Vote for Me” contests, but don’t promote here to ask for votes… But this is SO major, I have to ask for some support from you guys! Your fan support has helped Sunshine and Sippy Cups grow so fast this year, and I’ve really appreciated your tips, comments, and friendly emails.

Thank you for all of your support!

I really appreciate ANY help that you can give me, with votes, or by helping to spread the word! Currently, I’m in 23rd Place in Washington… I’d LOVE to get into the top 5 for this round!!!

And, if you’re in another state, leave your link in a comment, and I’ll vote for you too!!
