Recently, I won the Fall 2013 Bak Cases Giveaway. They emailed me and kindly asked for my feedback on the product. I am extremely impressed with the design. It acts as both of protective phone case and a stylish wallet. You can store your IDs and credit cards with the built-in slots. It is a hard case to protect your phone but has a smooth feel with its 100% genuine leather material. I am incredibly happy with this case and would recommend it. 

I emailed the Bak Cases company back to see if they were interested in hosting a giveaway to my Sales-aholic reader. They generously offered to give away FIVE Samsung S3 Bak Cases!! You can win a prize worth $45. Even if you don’t have a Galaxy S3, this would be a great present for your friends or family. To enter, head to this post here (You’ll have to click on the post to see the widget because it is not visible in the Tumblr dashboard).

The Bak Cases giveaway will end on January 31, 2014 at 11:59pm eastern time. Then I’ll proudly announce the lucky 5 winners. Good luck everyone :)

I received an email from Tumblr this morning about Sales-aholic’s third birthday. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I’ve start this blog. It has grown a lot since the beginning and it’s all thanks to my wonderful readers. So in order to celebrate I wanted to host a quick giveaway (sponsored by my own money) to give a lucky reader a $10 Amazon E-Gift Card. In order to enter the giveaway, be sure to click on the giveaway post here (since it won’t show up on the Tumblr dashboard)

There will be some simple, required entries for entering this giveaway. I’m setting up style shops with Thred Up so I’d love to hear your thoughts/suggestions on that. Then I’d like for everyone to enter two other giveaways I’m hosting so that you can increase your chances of winning multiple prizes :) I’d love to share a giveaway prize with all my readers but that can only happen if you enter. Otherwise, all the other entries are optional, but the more you enter - the more chances you’ll win. I’d like to give entries and reward those readers who have shared freebies and deals with their followers to help more people save money. So you’ll be getting lots of free entries for that on the widget :) This giveaway is open to anyone in the United States. This will be a short giveaway and will end on January 26th at 11:59pm est. So there’s only 10 days to enter. Hope you guys enjoy this giveaway! Thank you for the wonderful 3 years :)

The poses are ridiculous, but I had to. I won this Sailor Mars costume in a Sales-aholic and Nerd Elysium giveaway and received this about a week ago. When I was a kid, I always wanted a Sailor Scout costume, and I finally got one *__* Thank you so much to Sales-aholic and Nerd Elysium!
