CSN Review and Giveaway

I was recently contacted by CSN to do a review of their site and products.  In exchange for my review I will receive a gift certificate that I can use at any of their over 200 sites, not a bad deal.  But here's were you come in..... That $55 gift certificate will go to one lucky reader.

We recently were looking at barstools because the ones we will have in our Florida condo are just a little worn and could use a little freshening up.  One of the things I really liked was the HUGE selection, but of course that makes it that much more difficult to decide.  Do I want one with a back or without?  Do I want one that is leather or wood?  Modern or Commercial looking?  They have them all and then some.  See what I mean, a huge selection.  I am looking at South Sea Rattan because it is for a Florida Condo.  What do you think?  Something else you see that might work better?

One of the other things I have noticed about CSN Stores  is the great variety of things that are offered.  Pretty much everything and anything for your home, your family and kids, pets, office or school.  I can't tell you how much fun I had "walking" through their departments.


Just look at the kitchen area.  I absolutely LOVE my Rival crock pot especially in the fall/winter.  I use this at least once a week, even if its just on a leftover rotisserie chicken - which makes the BEST pulled chicken bbq sandwiches by the way ........ and I don't have to do anything! 


If you've been reading my blog this past summer, you know how much I LOVE my Vita-Mix, or you can check it out here.   Well guess who else has Vita-Mix  products?  You guessed it!  And this isn't the only one they carry.  So if you are interested ......

But if none of this is what you are looking for, or you're not a homebody, perhaps luggage is more to your liking.  Especially if you are a traveler, because the travel industry seems to be really hard on your luggage.


Whatever you are looking for, I am pretty confident that you will find it at CSN Stores.

Now for the really fun part.  Here's where you get to win the $55 gift certificate from CSN Stores.  To make it just a little bit easier for me - please comment separately for each entry. Make sure I have your email address (or its visible on your blog) so that I can contact you as the winner.

Oh and this opportunity is available for those in the US and Canada, since that is where CSN Stores ships.

First Entry - visit  and post a comment here with what you would use your certificate for.
Second Entry -   Follow me
Third Entry - Blog about this giveaway and post link here.
Fourth Entry - Send friends here, have them tell me you sent them and you both get an entry.

Now we can't keep this one open forever, so you need to get moving.  The closing date of this giveaway is Midnight, October 30th.  Funny I pick mischief night isn't it?  Ok lets get looking, there are LOTS of things you can chose from.
