December Giveaway #2......Come Enter!

This is the tenth and FINAL Sluggy's Boring Blog Box Giveaway for the year.
December is here and the Holidays are here and before you know it, New Year's Day and 2018 will have arrived!
This giveaway is a little different since it isn't a box full of goodies.
Come on and enter.
Somebody has to win and it might just be YOU!

Here is what you can win if your entry is picked.........



It's a Brinker restaurant brand gift card for $15.
You can use it at a CHILI'S, a MAGGIANO'S, a MACARONI GRILL or an ON THE BORDER restaurant.
I figured this was the best one I could offer since most people have at least one of these restaurants available to them. (We only have Chili's here.)
I know $15 won't buy you a full big meal(unless you go by yourself)but hey!, we are living on a fixed income now and I did the best I could.  ;-)

I'll leave this giveaway open until Saturday, December 23rd, at 11:59pm Eastern Time, so that gives everyone 12+ full days to enter this one.  On December 24th  I'll mark all the valid entries and use Random dotorg to pick a number and that corresponding person's entry wins.

Please note-I will mail this out when I can.....it might be before New Year's or it might be later that week. I will be sending it in a Xmas card via regular letter mail and NOT priority mail.  I wanted to wait to mail this so it didn't get lost in the voluminous Holiday deluge of cards and letter mail.  You can use this for a nice night away in the new year, 2018.  8-)))

*Please note the rules*
I'll post the name/Id of the winner on this blog and that person has 48 hours from then to contact me privately via email(my email addy is listed on my "About Me" page).
If I am not contacted via email I'll attempt to contact the winner via the email they supply with their entry and if that email is not responded to within another 48 hours I'll pick another winner.

There are three ways to enter--1 Daily and 2 One-Time Only........
1. Leave a comment every day.
2. Be a follower of this Blog(Hit the "Follow" button on the right hand side bar.) Let me know if your comment for this entry the name you follow under to verify.  You can do this entry once.
3. Post on your own blog(or on your Facebook page)about the Giveaway and leave a link in your comment/entry to where I can find it.  You can do this entry once.
In your Daily Entry tell me in your comment......which of the 4 restaurant chains you most would like to use it at, what food is a MUST to have on New Years Eve/Day for you, and/or what's the one big goal you want to accomplish in 2018.

Disclaimer--This giveaway is open to those with mailing addresses within the US only.
As the cost of postage to foreign countries has gotten to high I am sorry to say I can no longer afford to mail boxes outside the US.  These giveaways are not sponsored by any companies, I pay for it all(cost of items given away and the postage to mail it all)out of my own pocket.

***PLEASE NOTE***
Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in your comment.

If you're not a registered Blogger User with your contact information on your User page, please put your email addy in your comment or email me your email addy privately when you leave a comment so I can get a hold of you. If your Blogger associated user profile is a GOOGLE one with those Google Circles nonsense I CAN NOT CONTACT YOU as Google Circles doesn't show your contact info.

If I can't contact you then you can't win.  I am still having to disqualify entries due to this issue and I sure don't like doing that.  Thanks!

So let's get this started!

  4. Chili's is the only one close to us. But I might save the gift card until we were traveling so we could try a new place. No special food for New Years for my family.

  84. We are so remote, that we have none of these establishments where we live. Since my Hubs travels for a living, it would possibly make for a cheap meal out for him.

Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
