This is going to sound a little crazy, so please listen closely.
I will be holding a tool giftaway today, April 1st, 2015. Entry starts at the time of this posting (9am ET) and ends at 11:59pm ET). It’s not a true giveaway, as the prizes haven’t been defined yet, so I’m calling it a giftaway.
To throw your name into the hat, you’re going to have to tell me which tool you want to win (please try to keep it under $50). And you’re going to have to provide a few extra words telling me why you want that tool.
The tools MUST be sold by Amazon.com, either directly by Amazon, or as a Fulfilled by Amazon item. Why? Because shipping fees stink. Entrants must have addresses in the contiguous USA.
No need to include a link – a description should be good enough. If you’d like, you could also include an ASIN as well, e.g. “B00FX4BWKU,” which refers to a Felo screwdriver set.
If you inists on including a link, trim it down so it looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Felo-Slotted-Phillips-Ergonic-Screwdriver/dp/B00FX4BWKU/ . All the gobbledigook that comes after that isn’t needed.
Don’t know what you want to win? Then say “Surprise Me!” and make me smile, laugh, or grin with a joke, Haiku poem, or a story about any one tool you would take to a deserted island or Mars. If you are selected as a winner, you’ll receive some new tool as a prize. Maybe it will be a tool someone else asked for, or maybe a tool of my choosing with an extra prize thrown in.
1 winner will be selected at random. If there’s anything left in the budget after that, I’ll pick additional winners from names I recognize from previous weeks’ comments.
I would like to win an Empire Level 28620 strap wrench, as its positive locking action might work a lot better than the loose passive lock on my current strap wrench.
Please send me an Irwin PowerSlot cutter (link not necessarily, but included so you know what I’m talking about), which would be a huge upgrade over the standard leverage cutters and separate bolt cutters I’m using now.
Surprise Me! The one tool I would take with me to a deserted island is my flashlight, which has been automagically modified with a solar battery charger and high capacity 1 million cycle rechargeable battery that will last for 30 hours on a single 5-minute charge.
There will actually be 5 winners that are selected at random, not just 1. Everything else is no joke. I really do intend to whip out my credit card and buy some of you new tools.
