Fab Freebie: This Is Your Pilot Writing

***This giveaway  is now closed – see who won below! ***

Clearly I’m not the only one who loves a good writing utensil (and Target card) as this giveaway reached our 10,000 entry cap within just 24 hours. Nice work team! So that means we get to crown a winner early. That lucky writer is… Heather F (who “writes notes on the back of envelopes and then loses them. Argh.”) Congrats Heather!

This sounds kinda weird, but I’m very particular about my writing tools. So when the folks at Pilot noticed that we tend to write with their products, they wanted to thank us by passing some freebies along. But you know we don’t take them, so we’re paying it forward in the form of a $500 prize to one of you. Now, before you start figuring out what the heck you’re gonna do with $500 worth of pens – let me stop you. While they’ll keep your hands busy with a variety of pens and highlighters (even some erasable varieties) they’re also gonna let our lucky winner pick out $150 worth of Levenger notebooks and organizers (since we could all use a little organization this time of year). Oh, and to round out the $500 prize, how does a $200 Target gift card sound? That way you can pick up any other items you need to get 2013 off to a productive and organized start.

  • PRIZE: An assortment of Pilot products plus $150 towards the Levenger notebooks of your choice and a $200 Target gift card (total value $500).
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “PILOT ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … your favorite way to take notes or scribble down a message. Do you always keep a ballpoint pen in your pocket or purse? Do you swear by pencils so that you can erase your misspellings? Or are you 100% digital and prefer to rely on phone apps and voice memos to keep you organized?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, January 16th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: We always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not legally able to vend things beyond specific areas (more on that here). This giveaway is open to the United States and Canada.
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

Note: We aren’t paid or perked for hosting these giveaways, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQ page for more info. Pics courtesy of Pilot.

    Pilot Me!
    I am a list-maker and typically write it on a post-it with a pen and stick the post-it to the back of my phone so I will remember!

    PILOT ME! I am a sticky-note junkie. They’re everywhere–on my desk, my monitor, my wall, in my purse, by my bed, on my fridge… :) And I sure do love me a smooth-writing blue gel ink pen! But sometimes I mix it up and go all colorful on my sticky notes.

    Pilot me!! I always keep my lists on a wipeboard on my desk… easy for this teacher to erase as she goes along!

  4. Jorja says


    I’m totally a tech-girl, but I can’t get past the good ol’ listmaking on real paper! I love being able to strike something off my to-do list! :)

    I love pens and usually have a Pilot one stuck in my ponytail, but I have to transfer the messages to my phone at the end of the day because I lose paper like crazy.

  6. Heather says


    I like writing things down and making list still….occasionally my phone is the only thing handy so I don’t have a choice! And I am a total pen snob… Pilot just happens to be on my top 3 list!

  7. Terry C says


    My work desk is filled with little yellow stickies… that’s my to-do list. I guess it’s my favorite method, but it’s very sad. I could use some organization!

    Pilot me!

    I’m always trying to keep all my lists on my phone, but I usually end up carrying a notebook with me anyway because I just like it better. (Or a planner where you can see your whole month at a time – you can’t really do that on the phone.)

    “PILOT ME!”

    For work it’s a ball point pen & post-it notes all the way. For long term personal reminders…like my mom’s want list (I record random things she mentions so I never have to worry about what to get her for gifts).. it’s the notepad ap on my phone. For short term reminders I set my phone’s alarm to go off when I’m most likely to be at a place to address the issue.
