GIVEAWAY: What Can You Do With $10?




It's time for a giveaway! It's been far too long since we've given something away here on Mom To Monkeys, so I decided to give away a $10 gift card! To where, you ask? Well, I am going to let the winner choose between either Target or Walmart. There are some super deals and some awesome coupons out there right now and what I want to know is- what can you do with $10? I know it's not a lot, but we as couponers can stretch things a LOT farther than we think we can. So, what do you think you can buy for 10 bucks? Can you start Christmas shopping, FINISH Christmas shopping, shop for a birthday, stock up on a deal? Tell me in the comments for your 1st entry. For extra entries, you may follow me here on my blog or blog about the giveaway. I will pick a winner via Random.org on Monday, August 31, 2009. The winner will have 24 hours to get me their information before a new winner is drawn. Please be sure I have a way to contact you in the comments section in case you win! Good luck!

I could really use the $10 Walmart giftcard to stockpile on some groceries. The last year has been has been very hard for our family and my stockpile is just about gone. With using some coupons and their sales, I could probably get at least $35-$40 worth with the giftcard. Thanks for the giveaway.

I could do wonders at either WalMart OR Target, LOL!
I have been doing amazing things with Glade products and coupons lately at Target, LOL! I stocked up on Glade Sense & Spray regular $8.00, on sale for $5.69, used a $4.00 man. coupon, and a peely for $1.00 and got it down to 69 cents! Oh how I love a sale and piggy backed coupons!

I'd use it for groceries at Target. By using Target coupons & manufacturer coupons, I can usually get great deals on groceries there.

$10 at Target would get me so much stuff because I combine Target coupons with manufacturers coupons! I'm also losing weight right now and pretty soon I'll need to buy some new clothing!

Steph on August 25, 2009 at 8:41 PM said...

I'd use the $10 to buy my kiddos the Play-Doh Coco Nutty Monkey Set. They've been asking for it for months!

$10 Target GC is a lot! I can stock up groceries, H&B items, cleaning and finally BTS items. Combining with coupons, $10 can do more than we can imagine.

I feel there are NEVER enough Toilet paper coupons-I'd stock up at Target or Walmart for some toilet paper for my crazy big family.

Jayne @ Misplaced City Girl on August 26, 2009 at 7:48 PM said...

We are down to a one income family, so I know it would be used wisely! I would have to wait to be specific because I don't know what deals would be going on when I received it. It would give me a great excuse to drive to Target.

I would use the Target gift cards to by huggies or pappers what ever they have on sale for my lil grandson A.J. birdson@roadrunner.com

Connie on August 26, 2009 at 9:22 PM said...

I would go to Target and start my Christmas shopping. I would think I could use some of those toy coupons and watch for a sale to at least double the gift certificate.

chrissyb on August 26, 2009 at 11:13 PM said...

I would use it at Target to buy baby items for my unborn son.
