Win The Kodak EasyShare Digital Camera And Pulse Digital Frame!

CONTESTS | | September 4, 2010 at 5:48 am


Congratulations Jenny On The Spot!

So you know I am en-route to a cruise (thanks to Carnival Cruise Lines) but as I await the hurricane out in my hotel room I realized I may be offline a bit for 8 days. In fact I will be blogging everyday to keep you along for the ride but I really felt guilty that I am leaving my readers. To make up for my guilt I felt why not give my readers a treat while I am away. So when I was at BlogHer I was invited to do the Kodak bus tour. Even though New York is decently close to me and I have been there oodles of times I had never been on an official tour. The lucky invitees were all sent a Kodak EasyShare M580 digital camera, the same type I am going to give to you. Anyway there was a photo taking contest and my photo of the memorial set up by people on a fence for September 11th actually won. MY prize was a prize for you. I did not actually win anything for me but got to give my readers the Kodak EasyShare camera (valued at $199.95) and a Kodak Pulse Digital Frame (valued at $129.95).

Seriously this is an awesome prize and the value of it  a whopping $329.90!!!

Although I don’t have the digital frame so can’t tell you my experience with it, I did receive the camera. The camera looks unassuming but takes fabulous pictures. I have a DSLR, which is a sexy red, but this one rivals it since it is HD (high definition).

Now I would go on telling you about the specifications but I have a cruise to catch, people. There are links to each for more details. I will miss all of you as I doubt I will be much online except for recounting my journey.

Want to win the Kodak EasyShare M580 Digital Camera AND the Kodak Digital Frame bundle? (valued at $329.90)

To win tell me what is your favorite vacation spot? Contest closes 12th September 2010 . To earn extra entries, after you have left a comment, do one of the following, but make sure you leave a separate comment entry for each extra thing you do.

    Favorite vacation sot as a mom is Disney. My son was 7 when I took him (a year after my husband died) and we had such a great time. He had no fear and wanted to go on all the rides. It was a pleasure to be able to bring such a huge smile to his face.
    Prior to being a mom my favorite place was kitzbuhel austria. I went in the winter and ski’d the alps. When I went in the summer I hiked down and loved the beautiful wild flowers everywhere

My favorite vacation spot of the future is Bali, where I’ve always wanted to go to see the friendly white monkeys and huge Buddhist statues and to buy amazing Balinese jewelry (but will I ever get there in this lifetime?)!
