Pediped Footwear 3 Free Pairs of Shoes – SmartCanucks Giveaways Day 22


Pedipeds Canada

I’m very sorry for my very long absence. School took all of my time and I barely had any free time to do anything else. We’re back to normal now and you should be seeing more contests as well as deals on the blog.

Today’s sponsor is Pediped footwear which I personally think offer superb products. As a child, my Mom would only buy me “medical shoes” and I’ve come to really appreciate this over time since I never suffered from any walking/feet  problems. I like how Pediped go one step further and add the “Fashion” factor to their shoes. Fashionable medical shoes sounds perfect to me!

Today we’ll have three winners each getting a free pair of shoes for their child from pediped.com

About this Contest:

It’s here! SmartCanucks’ BIGGEST CONTEST GIVEAWAYS EVER! Every single weekday until 2010 I’ll be giving out atleast $100 worth of prizes daily!

After the success of the $10 daily contest giveaways we had earlier this year I decided to kick it up a notch… or ten… by giving out $100 daily instead! Of course I couldn’t afford that kind of money since I’m just a graduate student at Queen’s. So I decided to seek sponsors and I was surprised by the huge amount of interest I got. Many people were interested in sponsoring a contest day that we may end up going into January as well.

This contest is not your typical contest however! It’s fun fast and different! Here’s how it’ll work: Everyday we’ll have a contest and the winner(s) will be announced immediately the next day! There’s also another twist to this contest: You will win what you choose! To enter most contests you’ll need to leave a comment with a list of items you want to get! If you win you get these items for free.

You also have a good chance of winning since no person will be allowed to win more than 2 prizes throughout the span of the giveaways. This means that we’ll end up with loads of winners. Winners will be chosen randomly using random number generator.

One of my personal favourite entries was by monkeyincowtown:

Well Boo you’ve opened up a real treasure trove of memories for me with this one! I’ve worked in the service industry for many years and I have countless stories I could tell. However, there is one man in particular who was the nastiest, rudest customer I ever had to serve. Worse yet, he was a regular so I and my fellow servers would have to serve him many times a week. I was working at a very high end restaurant in downtown Vancouver. This man would come in several times a week. He drove a fancy Ferrari, which was always valeted out front, and quite often wore some sort of matching Ferrari clothing item ie: shirt, hat, gloves. Therefore my fellow severs and I referred to him as “Mr. Ferrari” (only amongst ourselves of course, never to his face) So anyways, Mr. Ferrari had man”charming” things that he did. When I asked him how he was and how his day was going he would reply by barking his drink order at me. No niceties for this one, he really could not be bothered to listen you. If I happened to approach his table when he was having a discussion with his powersuit buddies, he would bark out that I was not to be listening to his conversation and make me stand 6 feet away from the table until he was done talking (sometimes I would be standing there for 5 to 10 minutes!

____________________________________________________

As promised, today I launch SmartCanucks’ largest contest ever in celebration of the new design and as a thank you to all the wonderful readers who made SC the beautiful place it is today. I’ve met a lot of amazing people through SC and made some everlasting friendships and I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. Thank you.

I’ll be giving away a $10 Gift Card or PayPal cash daily for the next few months. Everyday we’ll have a different winner (you cannot win more than once). This means that we’ll have over 100 different winners so you have an excellent chance of winning.

Here’s how the contest will work: Every week we’ll have a new discussion topic. You can enter the contest by leaving comments and participating in the discussion. You’re allowed a maximum of 3 entries per week but you are more than welcome to post more than 3 comments if you’re enjoying the discussion (they will count as 3). Any spammy comments that don’t add true value to the discussion will not be included as contest entries.

Everyday (at no particular time because my schedule is pretty hectic) a winner will be randomly chosen.The winner will be chosen from all entries since the beginning of that week’s contest. So you may have left a comment on Day 1 and you could still win on Day 5. The winner can choose a gift card for a national store like Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws, Tim Hortons, MasterCard cash card, etc. or cash via PayPal.

A few more quick points…

I’m looking for sponsors

If you own or work at a company or in Marketing/PR and are interested in sponsoring a day or week of my contest I’d really appreciate that! Please email me at smartcanucks at gmail dot com.

I’m looking for a reputable Youtuber or Blogger to randomly choose the daily winner

Right now I’ll be randomly choosing the daily winner myself. But if a well known Youtuber or Blogger is interested in taking over that task to prove it’s done fairly that would be great! Please email me at smartcanucks at gmail dot com.

How am I affording to pay for this?

I’ll be paying for this using the money I made from GoogleAds mainly. Hopefully I can get a few sponsors too.

Is this the same as the contest running on Smart Canucks Forum?

No, it is different.

Now onto the contest…  😀

Let us know of your childhood or young adult memories  and the things you cherished the most. What makes you nostalgic? What do you miss? Tell us about a special moment you recall.

Welcome Koala to Our Blogging Team


Koala Canada

I’d like to welcome koala the lucky bear to our Blog Team 🙂

Many of you know koala through the forum. She has years and years of experience entering contests and knows all the secrets to winning as many contests as possible. Last year alone (2008) she won $6000 worth of contest prizes 😯

Koala has volunteered to share her tips and tricks and winning secrets with us. She’ll also post the hottest contests each week on the blog and will be blogging on the Canadian Contests Blog with RoseofBlack.

Never won a contest before? Think you’re an unlucky person? This may now change! The more you learn about contests and the more contests you enter the more you’ll win. In no time contesting will become a skill. As Thomas Jefferson once said “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”

Thank you Koala for sharing your invaluable information with us and I’m looking forward to your blog posts!
