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!”

    There’s nothing like making a list and crossing things/tasks off once completed. The iPhone & iPad help out a lot too though!

  2. Sabrina says

    I’m a huge fan of the G-2 fine in really any color I can find :) I use a combination of post its and a calender on my smartphone since I lost my last day planner.

    PILOT ME!!

    Pen & Paper keeps me organized! I would love new pens…after Christmas my husband and I were shopping at Target & I said last thing I need is new pens. We went to the lovely writing utensil isle & when he suggested I just use one from his workbag-because we have a house to save for! So, now I’m waiting patiently for the day I can splurge on pens :)

    Pilot me!

    Even though I have a few iphone apps for lists, I still prefer writing down on a piece of paper with a pen and crossing off things as I go…

  5. Amber R says

    Pilot Me! I usually scribble notes on random scraps of paper and my cell phone. I need to stick to one form soon though, I keep losing things!

  6. Keegan says

    PILOT ME! I love to make to do lists with things I have already done – then it always looks like I got a ton done and is a bit less daunting.

  7. Tasha says

    PILOT ME! I’m a pen addict. I bet there are easily 100+ within eyesight right now. Staples is my heaven, and the Pilot G-2s are the stuff of dreams.

  8. says

    PILOT ME! I love to use a small notebook and pen, but I often use my iPhone out of convenience. The really important stuff has to go in a notebook though, without a doubt.

  9. Megan says

    PILOT ME!!

    I always go the handwritten route – I have a hardbound planner I carry in my purse, which also always seems to have an overwhelming amount of pens (which I’m very particular about).

  10. Dani says

    Pilot Me! Always always always have a pen and notebook with me! I don’t know if it keeps me any more organized but writing lists is somehow soothing to me..

  11. jill says

    PILOT ME! Ha! This is funny. I was getting so frustrated with the pens in my household I just tossed a bunch and purchased a multipack of the Pilot G-2s. They are AWESOME. So more Pilot pens? Yes please! And Levenger AND Target? It’s the best trifecta of office/organizer items EVER!
