Reading rewards – CLOSED

**Thank you for observing/entering – the winner has been selected and notified. But in a little less than a month from this date, I’ll be having another book giveaway! Stay tuned -e**

It has been a very long time since I have done a literary related post and I thought the best way to do it would be by paying it forward to you all! Working in a world surrounded by books, I am frequently given and come across all types of books – more than I would ever want. I give them away to friends and family, and now I’m giving them away to you! Once a month, I will give away a new or gently used book that I love to a new home. This time, I’m giving away a copy of All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – which currently has spent 69 weeks on the NYT bestsellers list!! Enter below on Instagram!

And the fine print – at the moment, this is only open to US residents. Winner will be selected randomly at the end of 9/16/15, and will be asked to privately provide mailing address that will only be used to ship book. The prize is neither transferable nor exchangeable, and cannot be exchanged for money or money’s worth. Instagram not your thing? You can enter in the Rafflecopter entry below by leaving a comment about the last book you read.

I look forward to continue these giveways – I have all kinds of great types of books to share!!

Teen Vogue Handbook giveaway

Hello everyone, I’m trying something new! I’m giving away the copy of Teen Vogue I reviewed for the previous post to one lucky US resident. Leave a comment on this Instagram photo for a chance to win the book itself, but what’s really cool is that it comes with a free one year subscription! Perfect for yourself or a Christmas gift! You have until this upcoming Saturday (12/20/14) to leave a comment with your favorite Vogue moment. No need to like or subscribe. Just a comment! Easy peasy :)

I got so much great feedback about my video, and I’m absolutely thrilled you guys liked it! Having a tablet really helps get through a busy day – from getting work done, to the mind-numbing entertainment, but also in satiating my thirst to read more and more! Now I’m giving you the opportunity to fall in love with an Intel tablet just as much as I have! (hip, hip, hooray!)

Here is your chance to win one Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet courtesy of Intel. This contest runs until April 15th (you’ll have until 11:59 pm to get your entries in!). This giveaway is only open to US residents at the moment, sorry international folk.

For those of you that can enter, use the easy Rafflecopter widget below to enter not just once, but many ways, so you can increase your chances of winning. If you don’t see the widget at first, you may have to refresh the page. I don’t think you can see it through RSS feeds, so you’ll have to click through your reader to get to the page.

Easy right? You have a plethora of options by which to win
1. Like Intel on Facebook
2. Join the Intel Fan Advocate Experience and share your content through a comment
3. Leave me a comment telling me why you would like a tablet and a link to an app from their Windows store you would like to explore
4. Post a picture on Instagram of where you would set up to work on your tablet, tag @Intel and me (@thrifteye) and use the hashtag #tabletcrewthrifteye so I can find the picture (a disclaimer about the Instagram entry – your profile has to public so I can see your picture. But you also have to use a new picture, entries tagging old pictures will not be accepted)
5. Tweet about the giveaway, the text is already set up for you to go!

So again with the nitty gritty details – this contest is for ONE Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet. Open only to US Residents. Runs until the end of the day of April 15th 2014. When you set up to use the Rafflecopter, make sure you leave a correct way for me to contact you. You can’t win if I can’t reach you! ONE winner will be chosen randomly. The prize will be distributed by Intel. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know ASAP!

Good luck! :)
