Brokedown Giveaway!!

Oops! We've got a flat tire! That means we're out of commission for today, but we'll be back on the road tomorrow. So while we wait for the tow truck to come along and help, why don't we have a little giveaway!

I'm not going to lie, I have spent a LOT of money on Amazon.com. It is pretty much my go-to place for online purchases. They've got just about anything you could possibly imagine and they offer free shipping for most purchases over $25. So I guess we should go over $25, huh? Well, how about $30! Sounds good to me.

How to Enter to Win a $30 Amazon Gift Card:

1. Comment on this post. Tell us your favorite vacation location.

For extra entries:
2. Sign up to be a featured BlogTrotter.
3. Follow BlogTrotting.
4. Tweet (mention @Blogtrotting1 or #blogtrotting or #blogtrotter) or blog about this giveaway. (with link, if applicable)
5. Visit one of our past featured BlogTrotters. Leave a comment on their post. This can't just be a "hey, stopping by for the contest" comment, either! You can get extra entries for every REAL comment you leave on past features. (Illinois, Maryland, Ohio, Ontario, Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, New York, Australia, Greece, Arizona, Ohio, Massachusetts, Colorado, Switzerland, Illinois, Idaho, Wisconsin)

YOU MUST LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT ON THIS POST FOR EACH OF 2-5 THAT YOU DO TO GET THOSE EXTRA ENTRIES. If you have already signed up or done a BT post or already follow, just leave a comment saying so.

We'll close the giveaway this Friday, February 26, 2010 at 5pm EST.

And come back tomorrow when we resume our travels! We're visiting a family who knows a thing or two about buying in bulk. And their location? Hint: It is the "cereal capitol of the world!"

  1. Okay, I'll be the first! Although I love Greece with all my heart, I also love travelling to Florida with my children, because we love the ocean, we love the resorts, and it is only a 3 hour plane ride from home! (Oh yeah - and the shopping is awesome, too!)

  3. ah! I was all ready to type "fine, I'll be first!" but Lou beat me to the punch :-)

    My favorite vacation location... anywhere I'm in the mood to visit at the time, really. I don't have just one. Though I'll admit to being psyched about going to Spain this summer! Even if it'll make me miss BlogHer :-(

  10. My favorite vacation place is Tennessee. I have SO many great memories, from trips with the kids, to trips with just Joe, with couples, and most recently with my bloggy buddies. Love that it's only five hours away. Love the mountains. And the friendly people. (Don't love the Sunday morning exodus traffic, but I'll survive it).

  15. My favorite vacation spot this past year would have to have been EE09 in Tennessee. I enjoyed getting to spend time with all of the girls. And the beauty of the mountains was nice too. And that cabin. And the amenities. And having to share the bathroom with eight other girls, not so much. LOL, but it sure was fun.

  17. Have I mentioned how much I love cereal? Well I do as long as it doesn't have marshmallows in it.

    Anyway, vacation wise we LOVE Cozumel Mexico! We've been there several times & had tons of fun every time.
