Fab Freebie: Merry Maxx-mas

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – scroll down to see who won!***

You know we love a deal. Especially around the holidays when it’s so easy to bleed money. Which is why we’re psyched to have two of our favorite discount stores, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, here to help us kick off the whole holiday shopping scene by handing over two $50 gift cards that can be spent on gifts, festive seasonal decor, or whatever else tickles your fancy.

We’ve always loved snagging cheap finds for our house at both stores – like the nailhead trimmed ottoman in our bedroom (from T.J. Maxx) and just about every pillow in our den (from Marshalls).

But enough about us. Here’s how you can enter to win one of the two gift cards that are up for grabs:

  • PRIZE: A $50 gift card good at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “MAXX ME!” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …let’s talk about holiday shopping lists. What’s on the top of your list for yourself? And what are you most excited to be giving?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, December 1st at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: The 48 contiguous United States
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here Thursday morning for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…


And our two very lucky winners (as selected by random.org) are… Anna (who’s got her eye on boots for herself and a globe for her bro) and Kellie C (who’s looking forward to the painting and wainscoting being gifted by her husband) Congrats you two!

Note: We weren’t paid or perk’d for hosting this giveaway, we just take them on to reward our lovely readers! See our Giveaway FAQs page for more info. Pics from T.J. Maxx and Marshalls.

    MAXX ME!…pleeeeaaaase!!

    Since funds are tight this year, my family is going sans gifts, BUT we’re volunteering at a soup kitchen and I’m super excited for that! Yay for new traditions!

    MAXX ME!

    I have my eye on a chair from TJ Maxx that I dont think is going to end up under the Christmas tree.

    Im most excited about a shirt I plan on giving my younger brother. It says “Don’t Jersey RI” (Sorry Sherry)

  5. Nell says

    MAXX ME! Top of anything for myself is a new robe, so I can walkt the dog and be toasty warm. On my list for others: good, old-fashioned books.

  6. Agent Scully says

    MAXX ME!

    I’m most excited to receive a heart rate monitor for the gym. And I’m most excited to give BOOKS! I love giving books. This year I’m giving out “A People’s History Of The United States” since the author, Howard Zinn, died earlier this year.

    MAXX ME!

    This will seem like a shameless sponsor plug, but I’m really excited about the painting and DVD I got for my horse-loving niece from PaintingPony.com!
