Stop & Shop Gift Card Giveaway

Who doesn't love gift cards?  It used to be that giving a gift card was considered impersonal.  Now that you can get a gift card for just about anywhere, I really don't think that's the case anymore.  I love gift cards, and I'm pretty sure that anyone that I've ever given one to does too.  I have a little collection of gift cards actually.  Every now and then I like to organize this collection by throwing away cards that no longer have a balance on them, and remind myself of the places that I can shop for free at.  As I examined my gift card stash I came across a $10 gift card that (sadly) I can't use.  There are no Stop & Shop Grocery Stores in the my new state of North Carolina.  There are no Giant Food Stores, Martin Food Markets, or Peapod Grocery Delivery either.  So I decided to give this gift card away to one of my fabulous readers, as a way to celebrate getting to 100 Google Followers! (It can be used at any of the stores I just mentioned.)  If you don't have one close by, feel free to enter to win for a friend or family member who does.  They'll love a little surprise gift card love in the mail!

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me how you feel about gift cards!

cdziuba@aol.com I really dislike gift cards. They're annoying to use, activate, and I just cannot stand them.....unless I win one. :)

If I won that giftcard I would treat myself to all the delicious snacks I never let myself buy :) Calories don't count when they're from free food!

I like gift cards. They're not impersonal, because you can pick a place that the receiver really likes and show your knowledge of them that way. Everyone loves getting them instead of a gift they may or may not use, and no one likes wasting money on a gift that'll be relegated to the basement or regifted. As a woman, I have to admit I like spending them, too, because the shopping adds to the fun, and I can get whatever I want or need!

I love finding gift cards that I had tucked away for a rainy day. It's like finding money you forgot about in your pocket.

I love gift cards. They seem to be the only way I can pay for something extra for myself this year.

I love to gift cards but I also like to receive them.. It's always great to pick out something that you'd like to have, knowing that it's on someone else's dime.

Thank you for the chance to win!

great site!

I love gift cards, the only issue I have with them is when you get the "restaurant ones" at Christmas from family members you don't see very often. It becomes the gift card swap. I give you a gift card, you give me a gift card. I just would rather we both save our money. :)

I love gift cards. I know that a lot of people don't like them, but I don't really understand. I love picking out my own present.

I like gift cards. They are nice to give because it's more personal than money and you can get it to a place you know the receiver may not go unless they have a gift card.

Gift cards are always a welcome thing if you ask me and useful.

I like to give gift cards..especially to my grown "kids" and their spouses. I usually buy a gift, but also give a gift card so they can choose something special for themselves. I like to receive them, but sometimes forget about them when I tuck them into my wallet...or else I use them on someone else! Would love one from Stop & Shop...I'd buy myself some fresh flowers!
