ShopRunner’s 12 Days of GiveawaysNovember 22, 2016 4:24 pm
Thursday will already be Thanksgiving Day. I say “already” because we’ve had a very nice, warm fall this year. In fact on Friday we broke a record and hit 72 degrees. But on Saturday afternoon the winds picked up and the temperature starting plummeting. By Monday morning we were looking at our first major snow fall, more than 14 inches in the city which caused most schools to be closed and some traffic delays. I can now say that yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
The Christmas shopping season will be in full swing starting this Friday with many retailers already posting what their Black Friday specials will be. I have taken a peak already at what Amazon will be offering and plan to do most of my shopping online. Here’s a new, interesting online retailer that we are working with this year called ShopRunner. ShopRunner is similar to Amazon Prime, where you have to first be a member. Right now they are offering a free three month trial and they also offer free complimentary membership to eligible American Express members. ShopRunner members receive 2-day free shipping, free return shipping and member-only deals. Participating stores and brands range from clothing & accessories, electronics, home and many more including favorites like Neiman Marcus, Cole Haan, Toys’R’Us and GNC. You can view their most current list of retailers here.
We are assisting ShopRunner this year with the launch of their first holiday promotion, The 12 Days of Giveaways. 78 lucky winners will receive some of the best gifts of the holiday season with a grand prize of a $5,000 shopping spree with Neiman Marcus! Participants can sign up now through December 22. The holiday countdown will begin on Dec. 12 where winners will be chosen everyday, up till December 23. Each day the prizes change and so does the number of winners. The first day there will be 12 winners, the second day 11 winners and so forth, ending with one winner of the grand prize. Prizes include Elizabeth Arden skincare sets, Under Armor duffel bags, Kate Spade watches and wallets, FitBit charges, diamond earrings, XBox One, along with gift cards from some fine retailers. So it’s worth signing up for a free membership, doing a little online shopping and entering for a chance to win.
Hope you all have a very happy thanksgiving. Enjoy the day with good food, drinks and football while sharing it all with family and friends.
