Happy Saturday! This is the first weekend in a long time that my family has all been home for the whole weekend. It is completely wonderful. It also has given me some “down time” to dream up some more trips I want to take. Hi, my name is Mommy Points and I am a travel schizophrenic. While being home, I have done a little bit of cleaning, and came across some things I got with the intention of giving away, but have yet to do. So, today is dubbed “Giveaway Saturday”. These are not the most valuable prizes of all time, but I think there are some folks out there who would appreciate these goodies, so here is your chance if you fall into that category.
First up is the Bag ‘o Swag from the Freddie Awards. This bag includes a neck cushion, passport holder, and more! It’s actually some pretty nice stuff for a swag bag.
I also have some goodies from last month’s Austin BBQ Do. Most of this swag came from the Starwood Preferred Guest program. There is a (very large) t-shirt, hats, some SPG pens, two SPG 50% off Rack Rate coupons that are valid until 2014, some coasters, and more.
While we are on the topic of giving things away, I want to give a shout out and thank you to both Kids Fly Safe and the Traveling Toddler for donating prizes that I gave away at my “Family Travel Made Easier” session at the Frequent Travel University last month. The winner of both of these items was a dad of a toddler who was about 18 months old, so hopefully he will be able to get some good use out of both of those items. In case you aren’t familiar with the Kids Fly Safe FAA approved CARES harness, you can check out my review here. I have not yet reviewed the Traveling Toddler, but I plan to after our next trip with my little one next month. It uses your car seat’s LATCH system and top tether straps to attach to your roller bag so that you have a make-shift stroller and less stuff to carry through the airport. I have seen it used by others in the airport and it looks quite handy! There are other ways to attach your roller bag to your car seat, but this $15 contraption seems to work pretty well.
For today’s contest, just enter a comment on this post if you would like to win one of the two bags of goodies. I will enter you for both “drawings” with one comment (two winners in total), but in case you only want one or the other swag bag, just note that in the comments and I will make sure to not send you a bag of goodies that you don’t really want. 😉 I will select the winner from all comments entered before 11:59PM on Monday May 14th. Good luck!
