Two Year KOAB Anniversary Giveaway! Win 1 of 3 $25 Starbucks Gift Cards!

In just two weeks, KOAB will turn TWO.

Yup, we’re about to enter the Terrible Twos! 😉

Two years ago, my dear friend Amy suggested I start a couponing blog for people who keep kosher. “Yeah, right,” I said. “The field is so saturated. The last thing the world needs is yet another coupon blog.”

Fortunately, I didn’t listen to my own instincts. (Or maybe that was just nerves talking.)

In just 24 months, Kosher on a Budget has become a “thing” – a thing that has grown far beyond my wildest dreams. Your comments, shares, likes, email forwards and personal notes mean the WORLD to me! I’m so honored that you’ve made my blog your blog – the place you come for all the latest money-saving information.

Thank you for sharing the word with your friends and relatives. Do you know how awesome I think it is that KOAB is a topic at your Shabbos table? A shared tip between girlfriends? SO. Awesome!

So here we are. About to celebrate our second anniversary. And if you’ve been hanging out for a while, you know it wouldn’t be a celebration without a giveaway!

I thought a lot about what I wanted to give away – Gift cards? Cash? Nah, we’ve done that before! I wanted something different. Something special.

And then it dawned on me.


While I don’t know each of you personally, I kinda feel like I do. I love that KOAB has that two-degrees-of-separation vibe.

I feel like my readers are my buds. Like – if you lived in Kansas City, we’d hang out at the park on Shabbat. Or share some coffee at Starbucks.

Realistically, I can’t take all of you out to coffee – as fun as that would be! So instead, we’ll have settle for a Starbucks giveaway!

I’m giving away three $25 Starbucks gift cards, so three of you can have that coffee on me.

There are four ways to enter this giveaway – the first is required. You can feel free to do any or all of the other three in order to increase your chances of winning.

#1 Required Entry – Leave me a comment on this post. Share your anniversary wishes; tell me your favorite post of all time; or just say “Hey!”. Any comment will do!

#2 Optional Entry – Subscribe to the KOAB Email Newsletter. With all the changes in Facebook, email is where it’s at if you want to make sure you don’t miss a single deal! Once you subscribe, leave me a separate comment that you have done so (or if you’re already a subscriber, just let me know that).

#3 Optional Entry – Share this post with your friends on Facebook. Just click the blue “share” button at the top of this post. I know you probably feel like your friends must know about KOAB, but of the 3,200 or so people who’ve liked KOAB, they have over 100,000 friends who haven’t done so yet! Again, leave a separate comment once you’ve shared.

#4 Optional Entry – Sign up to get Text Alerts from KOAB. I don’t text more than once or twice a day – and it’s only the hottest deals that are likely to expire before you can get to them. Just text 40404 to KOABDeals. (More information about text alerts here.) Yep, you’ve got it – leave a separate comment that you’ve signed up.

You have until July 4th at 11:59 pm EST to enter this giveaway. The three winners will be notified on July 5th. You must be 18 years or older to enter. You may live outside of the United States to enter, but the winning gift card must be delivered to someone who lives inside the United States (sorry!).

This is not a sponsored giveaway. Starbucks does not know about, sponsor nor endorse this giveaway.

  32. Happy Anniversary! I don’t know where to begin…I love your deals!!! There’s no way I could pick a favorite. But I’ll name a few…from the Free Gifts to Grow Points to the free Amazon MP3s…to the deals on yom tov dresses for my girls, to the fantastic sales (and Free Shipping!) at The Children’s Place…it’s like money growing on trees. I have to hold back and remind myself that it’s only a good deal if its something I really need;-) Thanks for all you do!

  33. I’m already a subscriber…of course;-)
