It’s that time of year again! Whether you say Merry Christmas, Felix Navidad, Happy Hannukkah, Happy Holidays or… bah humbug, most people are celebrating something wonderful this month. A few years ago, we started the 12 Days of Giveaways, and have proudly made it our tradition where we get to give back to our readers and partners.
This year, we have over $14,000 in prizes to give back to our readers!
How it works
Starting Monday, December 1, we will launch a contest (or two.. or three) each day. On December 13, we’ll be randomly drawing names from all the entrants to announce all winners in one major post. Each giveaway will run until 11:59 p.m. on
December 12 December 14 – deadline extended!
The prizes will have something that appeals to everyone: gift cards, electronics, luxurious hotel experiences and some tasty treats too!
