Contest: Do You Posted Note?

I recently received some gift cards through various rewards programs that are offered through Chase Credit and Debit cards as well as Best Buy’s Reward Program. When the gift cards came in the mail I thought, “Why not use these fun cards for a contest?”  

What are the prize packages? 

First Place:  $100 dollar gift card to Best Buy.  $50 dollar gift card to iTunes and $50 dollar gift card to Target. (Total of $200)

Second Place: $50 dollar gift card to Borders Books

Third Place: $25 dollar gift card to Starbucks

If you are a long-time reader of Posted Note then you might remember a contest I did here all the way back in 2005. It was a huge success and so much fun, but also quite a bit of work. I think this one might be a little easier on me and my readers. 

This contest will be a series of trivia questions. The answers can all be found on this website 

For three days at 8:00 a.m.  I will post the Trivia Questions starting Monday February 23rd. To be clear, that means I will post questions on February 23rd, 24th, and 25th. 

What you must do is find the answers and keep them to yourself. On the 26th post a comment that says, “I have the answers!” or pretty much any comment, it doesn’t matter what you say, it just matters that you post a comment and it has your name and email. You can post a comment as many times as you want. At the end of the day, Midnight, of the 26th I will tally all the comments and then I will ask my mom to pick 3 numbers from 1 to whatever the number of comments and those winners, if they have all the correct answers will win. 

Example Questions:

1. Just Say Jes is the former name of which reader of posted note? Answer: Chirky! 

2. My mother has a website that I designed. What is her name and what is the name of her website?
