Gamestop GIVEAWAY

• 08 December 2010

Oh Megan, you're a lucky girl...your # came up!



















Let me preface this whopper-of-a-giveaway with an itty bitty confession--we actually don't have any video games in our home right now. This is, if you will, my first foray into the world of non-board-game gaming :) So you may be wondering why I am hosting this giveaway. Well, just two days ago my oldest daughter had the opportunity to try out the new Kinect at the Microsoft campus with her Dad. She said it was really cool. Like really :) So, I mulled it over and finally decided it could be a fun game for our family and that we should give it a go. We do, in fact, have a long, gray winter ahead...

For this week's giveaway, GameStop & TodaysMama are teaming up and would like to give one of you readers a $250 gift card to GameStop. Yup...you read that right. Two hundred and fifty dollars! Isn't that so nice of them to share their stockpile of gifts with me so I can share them with you? How fun it would be to pick up the new Kinect for your family? To celebrate this generous giveaway, they asked me to answer a few holiday-related questions:

1. What is your holiday wish for your family? oh ya know...just peace, love and happiness!

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition? a nice, big breakfast.

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish this year, what would it be? a vacation involving a beach and a virgin pina colada in hand. A well-toned, mega-in-shape body would be nice too :)

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money? focus on gifting, baking and the Savior. Not shopping day in and day out.

5. What games did you play with your family growing up? all sorts of board games. I'd like to revisit Battleship again with my kids.

6. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip? La Maisonnette bien sur!

7. What are your top 3 items on Gamestop? If I had to choose, picking up the Kinect for my kids, the Art Academy game and the Dance Party Bundle looks like a good time for all.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below as usual. If you'd like to enter their huge grand prize giveaway, you may do so here. Good luck!

We have a kinect on the way for a Christmas surprise. Some free games would sure sweeten the pot.

teresa-bug said...

My nephew would realize that I am the coolest aunt in the world if I gave him this!!! That is the way to a 14 year old boy's heart for sure!!!

Jen H. said...

This would be so great! We would love some more Wii games.

Heather Johnson said...

What a fun giveaway. We are not big on video games but we could surely add a few to our collection and share with relatives. Not to mention it would add a new dimension to our New Years Eve Party this year.

robin said...

My husband would just about DIE if I won this!!

Lindsey said...

My kids (and husband) would love to find this under the tree this year! Thank you!

Beth said...

I want this kinect thing so badly! And my kids would enjoy it, too!!!

Heather said...

We don't have any video games yet either, but I see a long midwest winter here too where we could sure use some. Thanks! ohiowildcats@gmail.com

Karotts said...

Awesome! my son could do some serious damage with $250 at Gamestop!

** Adrian ** said...

Great Giveaway! I'd love to get a couple more controllers so my four kids could play together! It's fun having family time playing games together!!

johnson.adrian1@gmail.com

Chelsea said...

That's awesome. It's probably a good thing that there aren't many games in your house - I'm addicted to the New Super Mario Bros. for Wii. Seriously addicted.

But it's so much fun!

jenna said...

I'm not a game person, but I think the Kinect would even thrill me :) Never mind the kids.

everydayjami said...

i have four boys...we want/need this gift certificate from gamestop:)

Wilcox Family said...

This would be so much fun to have. I've been resisting gaming systems as well, but I have to say that I have been very impressed with systems similar to Kinect. They really do promote family interaction and a lot of laughter.

Mary said...

My boys would die if they got a Kinect for Christmas!

Matty said...

Merry Christmas!

Jamie said...

I just picked up Dance Party 2 for the family for Christmas - would love to add to the fun.

Karen D said...

We aren't a big video game family either, but this looks pretty fun. And, I love that it gets everyone up and moving around.

Mami2jcn said...

My kids love the Wii and we could really stock up on games!

mami2jcn at gmail dot com

Christy said...

Great giveaway! And I love battleship too - I need to break out my old one!

Emily said...

My kids would take about thirty hours to decide how exactly to spend that money at GameStop. Too many choices!!

Annette Arndt said...

Our family loves to play video games together (kids are 9 and 5). For us this is the board game of the 21st century. We would love to have this!

Tenille said...

How fun! We've been dying to try the kinect!

Emily said...

I was not much of a game player before the Wii, but Wii can be such a good time! My boyfriend would giggle if we won! Thanks for the giveaway.

Brooke said...

Cool giveaway.

Becki said...

Fun!

jzimmerman said...

This would be so fabulous!

Ali said...

We are on the fence as to whether or not to give one to our son...he's been rather naughty this year. This might sway the jury. He's a Gamestop fan so you've already got him sold...now it's time to sell mom and dad.

Antinette said...

We love Gamestop- my daughter and husband go in an trade in old stuff to buy new- it's great and we'd love the kinect! Thanks for the giveaway!

Ashli said...

I would love some games that get me up and moving during this long, cold winter!

Michemily said...

Oh my, sign up my family!

hannah said...

I feel this giveaway is a sign!!We as a family just entered into the game console world with a Wii for the family. We have been loving it, but the games are so expensive. This would be such a great giveaway to win as I can put some new games under the tree as a surprise!! Happy Christmas to you and your family!!

Tori said...

I have never had a video game. Ever. Nor have my children. How weird is that?

Kelly C. said...

Confession: my last video game experience was with a Sega back in the early 90's. We are like your family with no video games yet, but I'm loving the options that families can do together. We'd love to get started with this generous prize!

Beverly C said...

We really enjoy the we and would like to try the kinect too!

Andrea said...

The Kinect is my first foray into the gaming world as well. My kids had been begging for a Wii, so my husband and I told them they could save up for it. After six months of doing jobs and putting their allowance money into the pot, they finally had enough--but decided to go with the Kinect/XBOX console instead. We just picked it up a couple of weeks ago, and it has been a total blast! I love how it gets us moving--it'll be perfect for our long Wyoming winters.

Great giveaway! We'd love to add to our very small collection of games:).

JENNIE! said...

OOOHHH!!! Mee!!! It would be a Christmas miracle!!

suneeta said...

My kids would go crazy with a $250 GC from GameStop!

This could really solve the "what do I give my husband for Christmas" dilemma I am having. Great give away. Welcome to the PNW. We moved here a year and a half ago and because of your blog I asked for your sister's contact info and she was sweet enough to have us over and talk with us about the area. We are loving our time here.
