TRY YOUR LUCK: The Worldwide $450 #BlizzardBucks Cash Giveaway!!!

Okay, now I think we can officially start getting ready for Christmas.

We’ve filled the neighbourhood kids’ baskets on Halloween. We’ve bought our poppies and hopefully explained Remembrance Day’s importance to our children so they don’t take the sacrifices made on their behalfs for granted. And since we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October, and Black Friday isn’t officially a thing up here, we can safely bust out our tinsel and trees free of neighbourly shade!

But you’re not getting something for nothing—Christmas is easily the most expensive holiday, and no one wants to be the parent who couldn’t get their kids something nice under the tree. Remember what Drake said?

“I’m more concerned with ████ thinkin’ ’bout Christmas in August
Do anything to buy gifts for their daughters”

— Drake, “Lord Knows”, Take Care (2011)

All that said, may I present Exhibit A—the #BlizzardBucks $450 Canadian Cash Giveaway, a way for you to make your Christmas season a lot merrier!

GIVEAWAY: Getting Prepped for Winter’s Hex with the Help of COLD-FX®!!!

December is arguably the most important time of year to be on your A-game. Colder weather aside, we pack more time in with family and friends than we do all year, too busy getting festive to worry about things like sleep and proper diet. It’s fun and all, but everything’s best in moderation, and enough bad behaviour only gets you one place—laid up in bed, wondering how you could’ve prevented this tragedy from happening!

But that, my friends, is putting the cart before the horse. There’s little good to be found from trying to manage a cold after it’s taken hold, which is why COLD-FX® invited me in for Cold and Flu Defence 101 to learn how to prepare for the cold and flu season ahead!

Covering immunity boosting tips, balancing the ever-moving bits of our lives, and what to do when you’re already feeling sick, special guest Candice Sockett, a nurse practitioner, helped explain how COLD-FX® could help set me up for success in a world filled with harmful microbes galore!

Netflix Stream Team | Season One, Episode Two — Baking Up a Storm with Netflix! (A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 7)

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, everyone breathed easier because it marked the last day of A Case Cringle Christmas!

It’s been a solid week of posting here in Casa de Palmer, with giveaways galore sandwiched between reviews, reflections and a healthy dose of mischief, I’ve taken this pile of swag that Sarah eyes with disdain every time she steps into the house, looking for readers who could make far better use of it than me.

But a huge thanks to everyone who’s been part of the fun this week — great contests make way for even better prizes, and your support helps me grow this blog from a hobby into something with a little more presence.

And speaking of presents, almost as if that play on words wasn’t completely intentional, of course I’m ending the week with one last giveaway — but you’ll have to bear with me a bit before we get there ????

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 1 — Keep Your Phone Game on Fleek with the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3!

Ahoy there, Internetland — you couldn’t seriously believe I’d let the Christmas season pass me by without putting out some sweet giveaways to celebrate the holidays, right? Though not as expansive — or admittedly, prepared — as the Techmas event at my buddy Zach’s site, I’ve partnered with a number of brands who have all sorts of things they’d love you to have to ring in the New Year!

The first gift good ol’ Case Cringle has for the good little girls and boys out in Internetland is the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3, a 5.5″ Android smartphone that can do just about everything other flagship phones can do, but at a fraction of the price!

But let’s get something straight from the drop — this phone is not impervious to gravity.

I first got my hands on the Idol 3 back in June when Citizen PR invited me to BMO Field so I could witness an announcement first-hand  as Alcatel onetouch partnered with Toronto FC, and a Dwayne de Rosario Testimonial Match as icing on the cake!
