Fab Freebie: All Time Lowe’s

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

For our big two year blogiversary and we’re celebrating with one of the biggest freebies we’ve ever freebied: a $500 Lowe’s gift card.

Did that sink in yet? It still hasn’t for us. When we started hunting for the perfect blogiversary prize a few weeks ago we never thought we’d land something so exciting. It’s like Lowe’s is giving one of you the chance to take on a big project and they’re footing the bill. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to be giving it away.

We probably don’t need to remind you of all the items you could snag during a $500 shopping blitz at Lowe’s – paint, lighting, power tools, holiday decor, flooring. Heck, you could even get a new dishwasher or something. So in case you’re having any trouble picturing where you’d put five hundred Lowe’s dollars, allow us to lend our expertise (that is, our money-spending assistance). Here are a few items that we’ve got our eyes on:

This Idylis air purifier: Since the cold weather will have us closing up our windows and doors soon, the HEPA filter on this baby keeps indoor air from getting stale and could really help Sherry as we get into allergy season.

A new lawn mower: I know the season’s ending, but I’ve had it up to here (picture my hand above my head) with the used mower we bought when we moved back in 2006 (let’s just say it’s no longer self-propelling). Lowe’s online Mower Selector tool helped turn up a bunch of options that we could snag for well under 500 beans.

A cool bathroom sink: With a full bathroom redo moving closer to the top of our to-do list we’re already starting to fantasize about where we can add some special touches, like plopping a vessel sink on top of a thrifted piece of furniture-turned-vanity. And Lowe’s has a bunch of awesome vessel sink options.

I’ve also been contemplating adding some outdoor path lighting or taking our garage organization a step further with some more sophisticated shelving. But we’d better quit letting our minds wander because we’re not the ones who get the $500 gift card… one of you does! Here’s how:

  • PRIZE: A $500 Lowe’s gift card (in case you forgot)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “GIMME THAT $500” (why dance around it, right?) and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: Tell us what project you might spend the prize on. Surely we’re not the only ones daydreaming about where $500 could go (and no, we won’t be picking a winner based on this answer – it’ll still be random)
  • CONTEST CLOSES: Thursday, September 24th at 8pm EST (that’s an extra day!)
  • WINNER: One lucky lady or gent
  • PRIZE SHIPS: Anywhere in the USA (but Lowe’s loving Canadians with friends or family in the states can enter and we’ll send it to your US relative/friend who can forward it on to you).
  • THE USUAL: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

    GIMME THAT $500

    I just moved into my first home and would love to treat my honey with a boat load of garage organization goodies. He has done so much for me and with me to help get the house ready and he deserves to have him “man area” spruced up.
    [I could also use a new kitchen sink]

    GIMME THAT $500

    I would use it to do some landscaping. I have a huge burm (hill) that is like 60 degrees steep in our backyard and we would love to build some sort of retaining wall and plant some flowers. This would be a great head start!

    Gimme that $500!!! We (I) have so many things we could use that on!! New light fixtures in the living room, or put it toward a full bathroom reno coming in spring 2010, maybe some paint…the possibilities are endless!

    GIMME THAT $500! Wow, so many things the hubs and I would love to do with a gift card to Lowes, oh like buying the quarter round to finish off our newly installed laminate floors that have been installed for a few months, or crown molding, or to do a much needed master bath overhaul…and considering its about the size of our walk-in closet $500 would be just the right amount for some new paint, some tile and a new sink!

    GIMME THAT $500! Thanks for the opportunity Young House Love! I have several projects on the go at present and I’m definitely going to need some new blings, drapery rods, paint, master bath light fixture, the list goes on!

    *If I win I’ll send you the before and after photos of what I purchased with the gift card! :D

    GIMME THAT $500!

    I have a few projects in mind for this: If I’m brave, a re-do of our fireplace facades, but most likely this will go to painting our living room.

    Happy Blogiversary!

  7. Jessica says

    I just found your blog this week and I’m addicted! Oh the goodness that $500 from Lowes could bring! I’m in the middle of a Living Room Makeover!

  8. Karen says

    GIMME THAT $500!!! Wow. That sounds so greedy! We’ve been talking about bumping out our teensy master bathroom to make it not-so-teensy. Happy Blogaversary!

  9. Holly says

    GIMME THAT $500!

    This would be applied to new countertops for our kitchen! While it wouldn’t cover the full cost, it would remove a lovely chunk. :)
