My dad bought his first SentrySafe product when I was just a little kid; large enough to hold anything relating to our identities or home or insurance, the safe was a primary method of security and organization in a pre-cloud world. When I wasn’t being a snot, he even let me undo the lock for him. Special days.
SentrySafe’s claim to fame in my young mind was that it would be safe if our house burnt to a crisp; he somehow instilled in me that this was a very likely possibility (although me watching Rescue 911 too young might have contributed to this also). Miraculously, by the manufacturing abilities of this company, all of your important documents would be preserved and retrievable; this was amazing to me. And still is. So, when I left for college, Dad bought me my own. A smaller version, it was enough to hold all of the important documents (birth certificate, account information, savings bonds).
It’s moved around with me, finally finding it’s way into my home. And when Pete moved in, he brought his too. Matching little safes to keep our respective treasures protected.
The fire-safety-obsessed fan that I am, think they could do a mad-cool state fair display by burning the product (you know, maybe in conjunction with the state’s firefighting display). And yes I hope I get a radical commission if they ever follow through on that proposal. I kind of think you all should own one.
So, here’s where it gets fun like it’s never gotten fun before: The crew over at SentrySafe have generously jumped on the opportunity to giveaway not one – but TWO locking safes to my readers. Wanting to giveaway the girliest safes ever, because that’s the kind of mood I was in, I requested PINK which had been created and sold in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. They retail for $35.99 a piece if you decide to buy directly from SentrySafe.
Here’s how you can win one of the two safes:
- Leave a single comment on this post: “I want that pink safe.”
- Or… tweet this message: Go win a @SentrySafe from @merrypad. Now. http://bit.ly/pinksentrysafe
The contest ends Thursday 5/19 at 10PM. Winners will be randomly chosen and contacted Friday 5/20.
And dudes, if you don’t want pink, consider entering and surprising your girl. Or mom. Earn brownie points.
(And full-disclosure: I didn’t accept free product or payment for this giveaway, I just like them.)
