Win Cash, Gift Cards, and Appliances, with Enough to Share!

Today brings the chance to play for some of those things that anyone can use. If not for yourself, then for someone you may know. There are some nice cash prizes, with enough to share if you wish. I'm sure anyone would have someone who could use it.

What about winning up to five new appliances? If you don't need a full suite of new appliances, perhaps a friend or family member could share the tax bill, and share in the win, too. This may depend upon how you make it happen, in accordance with the rules, but it is some food for thought.

Then, you could win a nice fat Visa gift card, along with a generous donation to your choice of a local affiliate of "Rebuilding Together." This non-profit provides free home repairs and modifications to low-income homeowners. This is a wonderful gift for a whole community.

When you play the game of sweepstakes, you always know that good things are going to happen. How many lives will it touch?

It's Not Deja Vu, These Sweeps are All New!

Today's sweepstakes are from trusted sponsors that have been here before. Though you might have that feeling of deja vu, like you've entered these already, it's actually more like another chance to win. They are all fresh new sweeps to this site, ready for a new batch of winners.

If you play sweepstakes long enough, you will start to notice that a game is often not just a one-time thing. Many are an annual event, others may be quarterly, and some just seem to come out at random times.

Some sweepstakes are just a different representation of the same thing. Others may even be the same game (or highly similar), playing for a new prize. Some sponsors will nearly always have a sweepstakes of some sort going.

I think this speaks to the generosity of these sponsors. They give back to the public, on a regular basis. Of course, it is good marketing, no doubt about that. Even so, they could choose a different method. I'm glad they choose to do it this way.

What would those of us who play sweepstakes regularly, do without them? Be they large or be they small, we still just want to win them all! Is there any other game that could compare? I could not think of one.

What do you think?

Always You by Ruth Roberts - Book Blast and Giveaway!

Alway YouAlways You by Ruth Roberts

After tragedy strikes, Diana Mathison finds herself back in her home town of Magnolia Falls, sharing custody of her baby sister with her step sister. Reeling from the death of their parents, the three sisters have to learn how to lean on each other and live life without their two pillars of strength. Diana is full of doubts in her ability to raise a little girl and run her father’s law firm. The last thing she needs is to have Zack Connelly back in her life. The last time she let him in she ended up hurt and broken hearted.

Zack has given up on true love. It’s not for him and it’s certainly not with Diana Mathison. He came back to Magnolia Falls to heal after losing his sweet wife and their unborn child at the hands of a drunk driver. Hannah never had a chance at the love and happiness she deserved, therefore neither should he. His life plan is to take care of his sister and niece for as long as they need him, and to be the best veterinarian the town has ever had. That’s enough for him…or is it?


She leaned against the counter and began filling them out. “How much do I owe you?” She asked.

“Dinner,” he replied.

She looked up at him with a raised brow. “Excuse me?”

“You owe me the dinner you promised me ten years ago, with interest I’d say you owe me somewhere around one hundred dinners.” He put his elbows on the counter between them and leaned towards her, bringing their faces close together. “I’m free Friday if you want to start chipping away at that debt.” He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.

She stood up straight and pushed the completed forms toward him. “That should do it.” She gathered up her purse and keys she had set on the counter. “I’ll thank you now for the puppy because at two in the morning when it has me up with its whining and howling, I will be anything but thankful. In fact, I will probably be cursing you.”

She smiled, but it didn’t quite have the same flash as before, and he felt a web of disappointment she hadn’t responded the way he wanted her to. But he wasn’t planning on giving up that easily. “You’re welcome. And if you need any help at two in the morning or just want the satisfaction of knowing I’m not getting any sleep either, call me.”

“I just might do that. See you around, Zack.”

“Sure thing,” he said as she walked through the door.

She stopped, turned around, and leaned against the door jam. A smile touched the corners of her lips. “Dinner’s at seven. Don’t be late.”

Shop at Home with Groupon Goods!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

I love to shop. I also love a good bargain. However, I don't have a lot of time to devote to searching for sales, then running from store to store to get all the best bargains. Not to mention that if I've found a good bargain, then others have, too. It is so disappointing to arrive at your destination, only to find that your treasure has already flown off the shelves and is no longer available. Then, of course, there's the traffic.

Luckily, I can still do the things I love to do, at home with Groupon! I don't have to search the sales ads to get the best bargains, and I can rest assured that whatever treasures I've found will be available. There is no need to fight traffic. The best part is, there is so much to choose from! I can shop till I drop, without ever leaving home. All I have to do is to point my Web browser to Groupon Goods.

Some of the categories you will find at Groupon Goods include Home & Garden, Jewelry & Watches, Women's Fashion, Health & Beauty, Sports & Outdoors, Auto & Home Improvement, and more. Then, these are further broken down into sub-categories, making it easy to find what you're looking for. There is also an advanced search feature within each category and sub-category, which can pinpoint your needs even further.

Once you find an item that interests you, you can see its regular price, along with the often deeply discounted price you can buy it at through Groupon Goods. I've been looking at bedding and have seen many quality items at a 65% to 75% discount, or better. That's some substantial savings! I'm liking the comforter in the pic below, though it's hard to decide!

Another thing I like about Groupon Goods is that for most items, you can get free shipping with an order of $34.99. This doesn't have to be one item. You can order several items that add up to this total. That's another bargain in itself! Most sites have much higher thresholds, if they offer free shipping at all.

I think I'll put all that savings back into more shopping! What will you do with yours?
