    COMPLETED: Post Your Shopping Trip Contest! Thru Jan 21, 2013

    From now through 1/21/13 (please see requirement 3), we are running a contest at the Coupon Shopping Club. We want you to post your shopping trips and we will choose up to two winners based on the shopping trips that "stand out the most" to us.

    What makes a shopping trip stand out the most? Well, here are the things that will get our attention:
    1) We like pictures, so post one with your trip to get our attention.
    2) We like copycatting great deals, so be as detailed as possible with the deals you do so we (or other folks) can imitate your shopping savvy. Include prices, the coupons used (with the date and insert if a newspaper coupon, or with a link to the coupon if printable.) If a zip code is required to find a printable coupon, list it
    3) We like printable coupons from Coupons.com, so try to use at least one in your trip. (More is better.) We also like coupons from the other main printable coupon sites as well. Please show our sponsors that you use our site to help guide you thru theirs.
    4) We like stats, even though we know some of you are not good with numbers. So if you can figure out your percentage saved, that's a plus (but not required.) At least tell us how much you paid for the goodies.
    5) We like uniqueness, so if your shopping trip isn't the usual freebies everyone is buying - maybe some baby products, a big shopping trip with some gluten-free goodies, or an order with a bunch of produce or meat - we'll probably notice if you put together a great deal.

    Here are a few requirements:
    1) You must post a new thread in the "Brag, Boast and Post - Your Shopping Trips" forum to add your entry. "Entries" posted anywhere else will not be considered.
    2) Your post title should start with the word "ENTRY" and include the name of the store where you shopped, the date of your purchase, and something else about your trip. Here's an example title: "ENTRY: Publix 1/9 Big Meat & Vitamin Haul"
    3) Any deals you post in your shopping trip must be valid at the time of your posting. For example, because Publix ads change on Wednesday or Thursday, you CAN NOT post a shopping trip from Tuesday on Friday, because the sales will be different. However, you can post a CVS trip from Wednesday on Friday, because the ad hasn't changed since then.
    4) Any shopping trip that misuses coupons or violates the fine print of any coupon will not be eligible for a prize.

    Although everyone will have their own style, here is an example of a shopping trip that meets the basic requirements of this contest (except the title):

    FYI - We may edit your shopping trip to route any printable coupon links through our advertising partners.

    And now for the prizes...
    Prizes will be awarded based on likes for the post. So feel free to send friends and family to the site (just no fake accounts) to "thank" you for the post. Steve and Fred will each get multiple votes, 2 if there are less than 10 entries, 3 for 10-19 entries or 5 if there 20+ entries.

    We will award one $25 gift card prize. The winner may choose from among the following prizes: Visa, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Publix or Meijer Gift Card OR $25 PayPal Cash.

    If there are 15 or more eligible entries, we will award an additional $25 gift card prize.

    Winners will be announced in the Contests forum on Tuesday, January 22, 2013.

    Good luck! Also, if you have any questions, feel free to post them in this thread and I will attempt to clarify things or make a ruling if necessary.

    Question: do you have to register first to be able to thank someone's entry? I posted on fb for my friends to vote and they could not see the thanks option. Thanks!

    Yes you must be registered to "thank" a post. Sign-up is free and we don't put members on any mailing lists.
