Tcritic Secret Word Comment Competition $525 Threadless Gift Certificate Give Away

Hey everyone, i’m having a little competition over the next month where I am going to give away a total of 21 threadless $25 gift certificates. Basically every day or so I will post a secret word in one of my blog posts on Tcritic like this: the secret word is “banana” and the first person to make a comment on that post with the secret word will win the gift certificate (providing you fill in a proper email address in the field when you leave the comment). See this post for example.

I will also be throwing in some bonus certificates by posting a secret word to twitter and the winner will be the first person to leave a comment on the post that the secret word twitter post is linking to.

Oh and feel free to share this on your blogs and other forums, if this works out well i’ll try and figure out some other fun games to play with Threadless bucks, and maybe even some other t-shirt companies might step up to provide some fun prizes :-)

    I will totally mix it up Ben for sure, my aim is to make it fun and random, so hopefully plenty of people can join in. I’m trying to think of other ways I could hide secret words that would be fun to track down, like an internet scavanger hunt. But anyway, I thought i’d keep it simple for now.

  15. When I started to do research on my new car, I came across this page that showed me everything I needed to know about how to negotiate a new car. There are more ways than you could think of that the dealership makes money off of every sale; doc fees, holdbacks, finance charges, and so many more. I went to this page and they sent me FREE information on how to negotiate with a dealer and how to purchase a new car below invoice. After reading everything that they sent over to me, I was much more educated on the buying process and wanted to share that with all of you. I simply printed the eBook, brought it to the dealership, and I walked out of there paying less than invoice. If you are in the market for a new car, this is some must read information and it is FREE. Take a look and please post any other advice you might have to help others who are purchasing a new car.
