Announcing Advil's Black Friday Decongester Sweepstakes -- plus a Black Friday Survival Kit Giveaway here!
Thursday, November 18, 2010
Last year I finally took the bull by the horns and decided to drop by Walmart on Black Friday. I knew it would be crowded, but I wasn't expecting this:
It was like being inside a subway train during rush hour in Tokyo. There was no room to walk, let alone push a cart, but somehow people were jostling and pushing their way around. It was wild and crazy; no wonder savvy Black Friday veterans plan their shopping strategy with all the precision of a military campaign! Needless to say, I chickened out and left without purchasing anything, but braver souls than me can really get some amazing bargains on Black Friday.
For those intrepid spirits, Pfizer has a fun sweepstakes where 100 shoppers will win their very own personal shopping assistants on Black Friday -- people to run errands, stand in line, and carry their shopping bags! How's that for VIP treatment? Five lucky winners will even receive a $1,000 gift card to help with the bills!
Here's more information about the Black Friday "Decongesters" sweepstakes:
To provide relief on the most congested shopping day of the year, Advil® Congestion Relief is unleashing a team of Black Friday "Decongesters" who will help winning shoppers by waiting in long lines for them, running mall errands for them and carrying their heavy shopping bags.
Shoppers at select malls in the Jersey City, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco areas can text for a chance to win a personal Black Friday "Decongester," who will help relieve their congested shopping day. In addition, one grand prize winner in each city will also win a $1,000 gift card, compliments of Advil® Congestion Relief, to help ease the stress on their wallet this holiday season.
