Wow, that's a lot of stuff!  The very generous folks at Party City want your Chanukah to be one to remember so they are offering a whopper of a giveaway on DailyCheapskate. A winner will be drawn at random on December 14, 2011.  Here are three ways to enter (you can do one, two or all three!) plus one *extra way for all my fellow blogging buddies out there.  When you comment on the blog, don't choose the "Anonymous" profile.  Select the "Name/URL" profile and just leave the URL part blank.  Sorry, I know the commenting format here is hinky; I have very little control over it.  

1. Like DailyCheapskate on Facebook.  Leave a comment below this post telling me you've done so, along with your name and email address in this format:  frugalskate-at-gmail-dot-com.  This will get you one entry.  If you've already liked DailyCheapskate on Facebook (I like you too), leave a comment below with your name and email address.  You must leave a name and email address because otherwise I have no way of confirming that you have liked the DailyCheapskate page.

2. Subscribe to DailyCheapskate's once-daily email. Leave a comment below this post telling me you've done so along with your email address in this format:  frugalskate-at-gmail-dot-com.  This will get you one entry.  If you already subscribed, please leave a comment below with your email address.  If you don't leave an email address, I have no way of confirming that you've subscribed.

3. Post the following in your Facebook status (and make it "public" so that I can check it...this part is VERY important) "I'm entering DailyCheapskate's Party City Chanukah giveaway. You can too! http://tinyurl.com/pcchanukahgiveaway"  Comment below with your name and email address and let me know you've done this.  One entry for each time that you do this (you must comment below with your name and email address each time).  You get two entries if you do this and also tag DailyCheapskate's Facebook page.

( *4. Fellow bloggers, if you blog about this giveaway and include a link to it, you will get four (countem, four) entries into this giveaway.  Can't beat that with a stick.  Please make sure you let me know by emailing me at frugalskate@gmail.com and (this part is very important) send me the url of your post so I can confirm it.  This can be in addition to any of your other entries.)

Lots of ways to enter and lots of ways to win this fantastic giveaway (retail value $50).  I'll choose a winner via Random.org on December 14, 2011.  You must be aged 18 or over, live in the continental United States, not be an employee of Party City, and not be my husband (sorry honey) to be eligible. Ready, set, enter!
