Moms Need To Know Back To School Bash - More Giveaways!

I already posted about the Acer Aspire 4820T laptop computer that Moms Need To Know was giving away as part of their Back To School Bash, but I've found a few more great giveaways to enter! Keep in mind this is just the ones that appealed to me, to see the full list check out their site. There are tons more than just these!

Bissell Steam & Sweep because let's be honest, I definitely clean my floors as often as I probably should. It's one of the pitfalls of living alone (and being addicted to the internet LOL).

$150 Gift Code I figure Donnie can definitely use this - textbooks are outrageously expensive! I'm hoping he'll be able to rent some this year to cut down on the expense.

$150 Staples gift card, courtesy of Bar-S Foods because Donnie can use some more storage in his dorm room, plus school supplies and batteries, plus they even sell cleaning supplies and bottled water!

Invisalign Teen is sponsoring a $100 AMEX gift card giveaway. Lucky for me Donnie has excellent teeth so he never needed braces, but he can always use a free gift card, and AMEX is great!

Not part of the B2S Bash, but still a great giveaway is the Subway Baseball DeSigns Tour for a $25 Subway gift card. Their Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sub rocks!

Parazul Review and Giveaway

Parazul is giving one lucky Love To Shop Mom reader a chance to win The Beige Classic Bag which retails for $250. Ends 8-24

From Parazul's website: Parazul is a fresh, exciting new line of handbags and accessories, inspired by the beautiful vacation destinations where the items are sold.

Their Alaska Collection features scarves and charms patterned after the wildlife and cultural characteristics of this rugged region.

In their Caribbean Collection, the bag colors and the motifs of the charms and scarves evoke the breezy aura of the tropical islands.

Parazul also offers a Build-a-Bag feature so you can customize your Parazul dream bag to reflect your true Parazul personality!

Zuvo Water Filtration System Review and Giveaway

One lucky reader of My Life with Rats and More will win a Zuvo Water Filtration System. ARV: $299.99. Drink pure, clean water and eliminate the wastefulness of bottled water, all at the same time! Giveaway ends 8-20

From the sponsor's website:
The Zuvo Water Purator™ uses a patented five-step process to produce clean, healthy, great tasting water...just the way nature intended!

Step 1: Ozonation
In nature, ozone is generated by lightning and cleans the air where rainwater forms. The Zuvo Water Purator mixes ozone with incoming tap water to treat taste and odor contaminants and improve taste. Like chlorine, ozone is a powerful oxidizer. Unlike chlorine, ozone leaves no chemical residue.

Step 2: Ultraviolet Light
The ozone saturated water is flooded with high-intensity UV light - the same as the solar energy that cleans water in the upper atmosphere.

Step 3: Photo-oxidation
The Zuvo Water Purator combines UV and ozone in a patented process known as photo-oxidation which releases powerful oxidizers to further treat the water.

Step 4: filtration with lead removal
Pure spring water is created by passing through fine particles in the earth. Zuvo uses the same principle by passing water through a Class 1 Particulate Reduction Filter, reducing chlorine taste and odor, lead, and tiny particulates.

Step 5: post-filtration UV
The filtered water is again exposed to high-intensity UV light as it leaves the Zuvo Water Purator, ensuring that you get clean, healthy, great tasting water...just the way nature intended!

IGIGI Review & Giveaway!

One The Art of Being Mom reader will be looking FABULOUS, thanks to IGIGI's generous offer of a $100 gift code.

Use it towards a new dress (like this Golden Flowers dress pictured), separate or a great accessory! Ends 8-20

Foldtuk Roaster: Review and Giveaway

FoldTuk is giving one The Not-So-Blog reader a Roaster in the color of their choice!

From the blog posting/company's website: The Roaster (18 lb fowl and 20 lb roast capacity) by FoldTuk Kitchenware is another Cook-Serve-Store innovation able to withstand conventional oven temperatures up to 500F (260C). The clever elliptic cover can completely surround meat products and provide a moist, crispy, evenly roasted meal. The Roaster utilizes FoldTuk’s renowned “fold and tuck” technology, which in function expands the pan and cover to a fully opened position of approximately 9 inches in height and provides convenient adjustable heights for refrigerators. Yet, amazingly, this enormous FoldTuk Roaster takes up very little kitchen storage space when the pan and cover are collapsed to a height of less than 3 inches.

We all have the need for large roasters from time to time, but they take up a lot of room! This ingenious design allows you to collapse the roaster when not in use - I can just slide it in with the cookie sheets! Plus I have a feeling I'll be using it a lot more than I use my current roasting pan because of it's great design.

Energizer Smart Charger & Target Gift Card Giveaway! (Everyone Wins!)

I got a blog post today from J. leigh designz for an awesome giveaway! Energizer is offering up a $15 Target gift card and Energizer Smart Charger to anyone who posts a blog about one of these topics:

  • Recapping your encounter with Smart ChargHers at BlogHer
  • Review of any Energizer charger and/or Energizer rechargeable batteries
  • Why you think an Energizer Smart Charger would make your life easier

I think an Energizer Smart Charger would make my life easier in SOOO many ways. I'm astounded at the number of items that I own that run on batteries, and with a teenage boy in the house you KNOW we go through batteries like candy. Having a Smart Charger in the house would allow me to save money, as well as the environment, and ensure that I always had freshly charged batteries available for the TV remotes, mp3 players, Xbox controllers, remote-control cars, clock radios, calculators, noise-control headphones...the list goes on, and on.

Invariably we're making a drugstore run late at night because the remote has died and there's something on TV we're dying to see, or there's a storm and the flashlights are dead, so having this on hand would really give us piece of mind as well as make our lives easier!

Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp ( Review & Giveaway)

3 Lucky One Savvy Mom! readers will each receive a 3-5 pound Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp. This contest ends 8-18

From the company's website:
  • These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
  • The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base
  • This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
  • Heat from the bulb (in our lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions
  • These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them
  • Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation
  • In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home
  • Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products
  • Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful
