Over the weekend, I received five 256 MB USB Flash Drives from FiveCentNickel sponsor H&R Block. They came preloaded with TaxCut Premium Federal + State, which will probably be useless to you unless you’re requesting a filing extension, but… They’re still pretty snazzy little thumb drives that you can wipe clean and use as you see fit.
Anyway, in honor of the end of tax season, I’ll be giving them away. Instead of handing them out all at once, however, I’ve decided to spread out the fun. So… Between now and Tax Freedom Day — April 30th, which is the point at which the average American will have earned enough in 2007 to cover their federal tax bill for the year — I’ll be giving away the drives one at a time. Winning is pretty easy; just keep an eye on this site and enter whenever you see a giveaway post.
For today’s giveaway, simply leave a comment at the end of this post sometime between now and 7PM EDT tonight. I’ll then randomly choose a winner and will notify that individual by e-mail. I’ll also publicly announce the winner when I post the next giveaway. Again, I’ll be doing this five times over the next two weeks, so be sure to check back regularly for your chance to win.
If don’t want to miss out, you might want to subscribe to the FiveCentNickel RSS feed, which delivers the full-text of everything that I write straight to your desktop. You can subscribe by copying and pasting the RSS feed address into your newsreader of choice, or by using one of the handy subscription buttons that can be found down the page over in the left sidebar.
The Fine Print:
– All entries must be accompanied by a valid e-mail address.
– You can’t win more than one of these drives.
– U.S. mailing addresses only (but don’t post it — I’ll contact the winner and ask).
– While I promise to send the prizes, I can’t guarantee their safe arrival.
On your mark… Get set… Go!!!
