Giveaway: A $20 Amazon gift card.

I’m giving away $20 in Amazon scrip. I’m also changing the rules.

This week only, the drawing will be a day early, on Sunday. That way the winner can opt to use the gift card on Cyber Monday (Nov. 29).

Even if you don’t get around to Cyber Monday shopping, the GC will come in handy in the next few weeks. Amazon and other large retailers will likely continue their price wars.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave additional comments to get credit for each entry.

Entry deadline is 7 p.m. PST Sunday, Nov. 28. Please note that this is earlier than usual. Check your inboxes before you go to bed Sunday night, or as soon as you get up.

And for extra karma points: Consider doing your shopping from the Amazon widget on my daughter’s website, I Pick Up Pennies.

    One of your old articles, “Surviving (and thriving) on $12,000” really changed my perspective on personal finances. Was really touched by the fact that you donated money to your church, despite of your financial circumstances at the time.

  153. I’m with Joseph, I never win, anything..anywhere…ever. But, you can’t win if you don’t *play* (so to speak) So, here goes nothing! πŸ™‚

  154. I’d love to win.
