I hope I got you into the landscaping spirit with my recent post on testing Black & Decker’s new line of cordless outdoor tools in Arizona. We had a ball of a time putting the products through the rigors on an Angels training field, and I’m even more excited to begin jamming on our backyard which is only just beginning show signs of life again.
While I’m busy doing that home maintenance, Black & Decker has generously offered to sponsor a giveaway package of its new cordless, 36v lithium-ion battery operated hedge trimmer and string trimmer, and I’ve decided to award the package to one lucky reader (you-lucky-home-improvement-swooning-reader, you). These were my two favorite products out of sheer utility and total ease of use, so I think you’ll find them pretty swell also. High-five, low-five, around the side!
Two ways, two chances to enter:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me what needs help in your backyard.
2. Tweet/RT the message:
I’ve entered to win some #KICKGAS tools at #Merrypad! http://bit.ly/toolsthatkickgas
The contest starts now, and entries will be collected until this Saturday, April 14th at 11PM EST.
How you’ll know if you’ve won: The winner will be contacted by Sunday 4/19 via email from email@example.com or via twitter (depending on entrance method). Don’t stand me up on a response, because within 48 hours I’ll pull another number (randomly, from random.org, yo).
How to save more moolah: In addition to sponsoring the giveaway, Black & Decker also offers merrypad readers a 10% discount and free shipping on any outdoor products purchased online at blackanddecker.com. Just use the offer code MERRYPAD at checkout.* (Wahoo!)
*Legal would like me to mention that the offer is good for one purchase per customer. So if you need more items, have your friend/spouse/dog trainer buy them and have it shipped to their workplace, what, did I say that?
Happy disclosure: I’ll also be receiving my own free set of these products to use this summer, and I am totally squirmy with excitement about that. Can’t wait for them to get here so I can do some yardwork (and maybe offer to tackle my elderly neighbor’s 20′ out-of-control-in-all-directions shrubbery with those hedge trimmers, chop-chop).
*Thanks to everyone who entered! The contest has now ended.
