Facebook Appreciation Giveaway: $20 Gift Card to Amazon.com

Hey, hey, hey! Guess what happened today?!

KOAB reached a milestone I never expected in my first year of blogging: More than 1,000 of you “like” Kosher on a Budget on Facebook!

Crazy, huh?! Thank you all so much for supporting KOAB. I am constantly blown away by the growth of this blog.

Without all of you, I’d still be talking to myself, so thank you all very, very much.

As my way of saying “thank you”, I am going to give away one $20 gift card to Amazon.com.  (Wish it could be more, but this giveaway is being sponsored by my very shallow pockets.)

You all know how much I LURVE Amazon for its great deals and FREE shipping (with Amazon Mom / Student / Prime).

Plus, with Swagbucks gift cards, I rarely even pay the full (sale) price on most things I order.

Here’s hoping that for one of you, a $20 gift card to Amazon will be a fun little way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your savings at my favorite online retailer.

To enter my Reader Appreciation giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. Please, just one comment per person.

I’d love it if you would “like” KOAB on Facebook if you haven’t already, but it’s not required to enter this giveaway.

The giveaway will be open until June 19th. If you can still comment, you can still enter. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on June 20th.

Good luck! AND THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
