Wish you could have been at the SaveUp 2011 conference. This week’s giveaway provides a little SaveUp vibe. The chicken slingshot is a particularly nice touch.
Attendees were given a bag of small gifts and the option of getting a few extra ones, such as software. I hung back from that, figuring other people needed it more (and that they actually understood how to use it). Still, I wound up with enough items to make a fun giveaway.
Housed in a reusable Savings.com shopping bag are:
A $20 gift card to Cooking.com
A cosmetics bag from Beauty.com, containing Bare Minerals mascara, Bliss Best of Skintentions daily moisturizer, Nick Chavez volumizing gel, Laura Geller makeup primer, Stila One-Step Primecolor (“bronze babe” shade)
Carters/OshKosh B’gosh logo items: A bright-blue insulated coffee mug, a $5 gift card, small reusable shopping bag, notepad and pen
Savings.com logo items: Bright-red coffee mug, pen, large oven mitt (“Don’t get burned paying retail”) and a super-cozy red fleece hoodie that reads “I (heart) savings”
The chicken slingshot: Its actual title is the Flingshot Flying Chicken. When properly motivated, this plush fowl crows and flies up to 50 feet. (Poultry in motion?) Since it crows, it should probably called the Flingshot Flying Rooster. Either way it’s a pretty startling little item. Watch it in action on this YouTube video. I’m thinking office Christmas party, myself.
