Giveaway and a Chance to Win a Hybrid Car!

Sorry, this giveaway is now CLOSED.
I’ve been meaning to start using reusable shopping bags at the grocery store. We do need the plastic ones for cleaning up kitty litter and various other things, but we have those coming out the wazoo right now, and I’m sure if we get low, there’s no law that says I HAVE to use my reusable shopping bags each time. This offer from Stop & Shop may just be the push I need to start!
.
The wonderful people from MyBlogSpark, General Mills, and Stop & Shop have provided me with a $20 Stop & Shop Gift Card to give to one of you!
…AND…

This month, Stop & Shop is paying homage to Mother Earth by offering you the chance to win one of two 2010 eco-friendly Hybrid cars!

Here is how it works:
From April 16-29, buy 5 participating General Mills items (listed below) with your Stop & Shop card, use a reusable shopping bag and you’ll automatically be entered to win. There are two different sets of participating General Mills items for each week of the promotion (participating brands listed below). No purchase is necessary. You can also enter without making a purchase by completing an official entry form at your local Stop & Shop store. There are two 2010 Hybrid cars up for grabs, and the more you buy the better your chances are to win! Limit one entry per visit. Open to residents of MA, RI, CT, NH, NJ, NY, MD, DE, VA or DC and individuals at least 18 years old. For details about the sweepstakes, see in store for complete rules.

Giveaway: $10 Stop & Shop Gift Card

Sorry, this giveaway is now CLOSED.

The wonderful people from MyBlogSpark have provided me with a $10 Stop & Shop Gift Card to give to one of you!

Stop & Shop is offering a great Back to School promotion, where you can save on both groceries and gas!

This Back-to-School Saving Event is taking place at Stop & Shop stores
September 4-10.

Here is how it works:
General Mills and Stop & Shop are teaming up to give families a great way to stock up and save as they gear up for back to school.

Here’s why you should shop at Stop & Shop’s big Back to School Event.

  1. Great sale pricing on the participating General Mills brands:
    Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Reeses Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookie Crisp Sprinkles, Cookie Crisp, Fruit Snacks, Old El Paso Dinner Kits, Pillsbury Strudel, Pillsbury Scrambles, Green Giant Boxed Vegetables, Yoplait Yo-Plus Multi-Pack, Fiber One Yogurt Multi-Pack, Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookies, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Pillsbury Sweet Rolls and Yoplait Delights.
  2. Additional savings for you or your school, depending on which Stop & Shop location you shop

If your Stop & Shop store sells gas

  • Buy four (4) participating General Mills items and you’ll automatically earn 100 points on your Stop & Shop card
  • For every 100 points earned, you’ll save 10¢ per gallon of gas (Please note: Total discount cannot exceed price per gallon)
  • Just swipe your Stop & Shop Card at the pump to redeem your Gas Rewards

If your Stop & Shop store doesn’t sell gas

  • For those Stop & Shop locations without gas stations, don’t worry – you’re not left out of the savings – if you buy five (5) participating General Mills products, you will receive 20 Bonus Box Tops for your school

MyBlogSpark is providing a $10 Stop & Shop Gift Card for me to offer to you!
Because the sale ends on the 10th, this is going to be a short giveaway period so I can try to get the card to you before the sale is over.

To Enter:

There are multiple ways to enter. Only one of the ways to enter is mandatory, all of the others are optional – you do not have to do all of them to be entered!

You have until Midnight on Saturday, September 5th to enter. The winner will be posted on Sunday the 6th. If you get your address to me before Monday morning, there’s a good chance the gift card will get to you before the Stop & Shop sale ends.

Mandatory – 1 entry:

  • Tell me, does the Stop & Shop around you have a gas station – and do you use it?

Optional – 1 entry each:

  • Tell me the most money you’ve ever saved at a grocery store (and how!).
  • Twitter about this post and leave a comment with a direct link to your tweet.

Optional – 2 entries:
