Contest: Save My Christmas!
« on: December 15, 2008, 10:11:28 PM »

Help me! It's less than ten days until Christmas, and I'm a few items short. I need your suggestions for some great deals or unusual items on Amazon.

And I'm willing to make it interesting. From your suggestions, I will choose someone to win a Zune team T-shirt *and*... a rarely-seen-anymore Zune sticker. Awesome!

But you only have the next three days to save my Christmas! Here's how:

1. Browse through our Amazon Top 10 page. (What's this? It's our new page that shows, real-time, the best-selling items on Amazon in various categories like books, DVDs, CDs, electronics, tools. Check it out here.)

2. Find an item that you think is a good deal, or that might be of interest to me. (Don't know me well enough? Go with something that interests *you*.)

3. Here's where you have to pay attention:

   A. Copy and paste the name of that item into a reply to this thread.

   B. Before you post your reply, select the item name in your post and press the Amazon Search button*. It looks like this: and it will convert your text to a clickable Amazon link for that item.

   C. Include a few words, if you wish, about why this would be a cool gift.

   D. Post your reply!

On December 20th, I'll select a winner from the submitted entries, and post the winner info in this thread.

Save my Christmas! Thank you!


* Have you tried our Amazon Search button? It automatically converts text in your forum posts into clickable links that bring up Amazon search results for that text. It's an easy way to give readers of your posts a direct link to product info - - and, the embedded affiliate link helps to support this humble Zune site. It's win-win, baby!

I don't know you very well, but my son wants this. (He is 9) so if you have a 9 year old to buy for  this would be great! I think it is a good deal!! Smiley. I hope I did this right. Merry Christmas!!

DEWALT DW919 18 Volt Flexible Floodlight, No Battery

This is the time of year when I think of emergency items. But I usually give them away and don't think of them for myself, until the power goes out or I need a light for under the sink to see why it's leaking.

BONUS: The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson. This book has been in MY Amazon wish list for quite a while now. I'm a sucker for time-travel stories, and the reviews promise that I will enjoy it.

That does look incredibly fun. I know the 9-year-old in me wants that! Good price, too.

Very observant - good detective work on the car photo. Killer price on that GPS, too.

Very practical, and a nice price too at under 20 clams. I spend *way* too much time under the various sinks in our house.  Smiley

one thing on that light though, it doesn't look like it comes with a battery, so you'd need to have other Dewalt rechargable stuff for it to work correctly

^ Ah, good point. I have some DeWalt tools so I might be okay there. Looks like it uses their standard 18V battery.

True Blood is one of the best shows that can be downloaded to the Zune. And this is the paperback issue of the books on which the series is based.

An amazing deal for the price!

I haven't seen this show, but have some friends who are big on the vampire genre of books and movies. Thanks!
