While waiting in the checkout line, some people impulsively buy candy, gum, or a copy of the National Enquirer with an unflattering picture of some celebrity. I didn’t buy any of that. Instead, I impulsively purchased a $25 McDonald’s gift card and now I’m giving it away to a lucky Impulsive Buy reader.
If you happen to win the gift card, don’t thank me. You should thank the mother in front of me in the checkout line who requested two price checks and didn’t have her coupons out when she reached the cashier. If I didn’t have to wait in line for as long as I did, I wouldn’t have seen the gift card hanging above the checkout line’s gum and candy shelves, and the idea of a prize drawing wouldn’t have popped into my head.
To enter The Impulsive Buy’s McDonald’s gift card drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. I don’t really care what you say in your comment, but it would be nice if you told me which McDonaldland character you would most want to party with in Las Vegas. For those of you who need a McDonaldland refresher course, Wikipedia has a list of McDonaldland characters.
Please donâ€™t forget to fill out the email field because Iâ€™ll be emailing the winner for his or her mailing address. The Impulsive Buy will stop accepting entries on Friday, September 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment allowed per person, and itâ€™s only open to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old. U.S.-only because the gift card can only be used in the U.S.
There’s one more thing. If you have a Twitter account, you can get an additional entry if you tweet the following before Friday, September 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time:
@theimpulsivebuy I’d like to party with (insert here the McDonaldland character you would like to party with the most) in Vegas. BIG MAC 4 LYFE!
So just copy, paste, insert the McDonaldland character you’d like to party with, and tweet. Only one tweet per Twitter account.
