Mega Giveaway – Day 1

As I wrote last week, I am celebrating the 3rd anniversary of Running with Miles (actual date is end of the month, but figured now would be the best time!) by launching a week long Mega Giveaway. This is to thank you all for following along and reading the posts. It is also to give back as everything that has been purchased through my Amazon link over the last two months is going to help pay for these items this week. So, thank you and have fun!

I will be putting out a post later that gives details on how to sign-up for my daily newsletter. If you sign-up for it, you will find out each day what the prizes will be for the next day’s giveaway and also entered to win an Amazon Kindle Touch – only available for newsletter subscribers!

Mega Giveaway – Day 1

Each day, I will be giving away three different items. I have a variety of stuff to give away this week and hope that everyone can get some use from it (or give it as a gift to someone who can!). Here is how it will work:

  • Every person can enter up to times per day (so, once per item).
  • Today’s giveaway will run through 11:59PM (ET). If you do not see your entry, do not worry – it is logged and I will approve it.
  • The items given each day will be the ones given to the winners of that day’s giveaway – so, each day is a new chance to win new gear
  • You are only eligible to win one item per day. But, you can enter every day for a chance to win a different item each day.
  • Winners will be chosen using
  • Sorry, but the items that must be shipped will only be shipped to U.S. addresses. If you live outside of the US, please make sure there is an address in the US where it can be shipped to.
  • Today, you may comment on anything you like! Please keep the comments family-friendly
  • The decisions made in these giveaways are made by me and me alone. Unless otherwise mentioned, all prizes have been purchased by me.
  • Important: The winners will be contacted in order of random selection to see which item they will want. So, first winner selected will have the first choice and so on.
  • Have fun!

Item #1 – GoGo In-Flight Pass

One of the items being given away today is an in-flight internet pass by GoGo (provided by BoardingArea). This pass is good for a single-use connectivity product on a domestic U.S. flight and does not expire until June 30, 2015

Item #2 – Amazon Fire Stick

Amazon Fire Stick

The Amazon Fire Stick is Amazon’s latest endeavor to get the Amazon video collection in more homes. Except, it doesn’t just give Amazon video options. It also allows a variety of apps that can be controlled with the included remote. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can use the stick (connected to your TV) to access the Amazon Prime Video library for free as well as any purchased content. It will also access Netflix and many other video apps. Just plug it in, and use the remote to access all of that info directly on your TV (or your hotel TV!). Retail Price: $39 and currently not shipping from Amazon until January 15, 2015, but of course the winner’s stick will be sent out this week!

Item #3 – Canon Powershot A4000 

Canon Powershot A4000

This is a camera I have written about before when deals pop up and it is a perfect one to just throw in a bag to take anywhere. It is a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization. It has a 8X optical zoom (much better than digital zoom) and shoots the images and video to SD cards. The model you will receive is the silver model. Retail Price: $129

Thanks for entering! Check back again tomorrow for the winners and the next set of prizes!
