For a long time I have been tossing around starting up a weekly giveaway for Southern Saver readers.  Finally some just came right out and asked for it!  Here is my plan:

Once a week I will post a giveaway (usually a giftcard unless someone wants to donate something to the cause).  You will have 48 hrs to comment and then I will randomly select a winner. To keep you on your toes and to help me have some wiggle room if we have a crazy day I do not plan post these on the same day every week.

This week is your coice.  Pick any store that Southern Savers regularly covers and get a $25 gift card to that store! Leave a comment saying what store you would pick and make sure you leave your email address.  You may enter once.  A winner will be selected Thursday morning.  Good Luck!

**This giveaway is over check back for next weeks**
Note: If you have never commented before on this site your comment will have to be approved so it will not appear right away.

      Hi! We met in K-Mart today! I would have to pick CVS because it’s closest to my home and I can turn a $25.00 gift card into a LOT more than that with coupons, specials and ECB’s! What a great thing to do for your readers. Thanks!

    • Awesome! I would have to say Kroger or CVS, I may be addicted to the both of them! $25 could go a long way at either of these stores!

    • Jennifer Thieleman

      It’s been on my to-do list, to write you a thank you e-mail, so I will include it in this! Thank you for your wonderful blog. I’ve been using couponmom.com and I also started following another blog in March (where I learned about the CVS deals!)but a lot of the posted coupons did not apply because they are in a different state. (I live in Upstate SC!)I was thrilled to find your site. I really appreciate the way you point us to all of the possible coupons for items on sale.
      I would really appreciate a Publix gift card.

    • Paul

      I would pick CVS. I love rolling ECB’s. Thanks for helping me stretch my dollar!

    • Rose

      I would like to be entered into this for a Kroger Card. Kroger has helped me so very much in saving lots of money. I try to help 3 families out as much as I can. Times have been rough for them as being laid off from their jobs. Last week one of the gentleman lost his job after being there for 35 yrs. He was left with not having any Insurance or anything. Sometimes I go without buying things here in my home as it is just my DH & I so that the families can enjoy having food placed upon their tables for them & their children. Thank You very much from the bottom of my Heart in letting me help someone in the time of need.

    • I’d love a Kroger gift card.

      I think Publix is the popular bet- I buy all my food there(always on sale)- so it would be a MAJOR help. Thank you!

      I’m just starting to get into couponing and a Publix gift card would be AWESOME!!!!

      Food Lion it is! Since it’s the only grocery store within 15 miles of my house, I have no choice but to patronize it on a regular basis. Ah, but if only they would double Qs!
