Hi everyone! Over the past few years I have developed a knack for coming across fun and exciting opportunities online. I love to share these with others, and I have often thought of creating a blog such as this to have one central location from which to share all of my finds. So, here it is! I will not bog down this blog with a lot of small gimmes, just my favorites that I deem worthy of sharing. I will update this blog every time I find something worthwhile to share and I hope you will come back often if you also find them worthwhile.

So, without further ado, I am celebrating the launch of my new blog with a giveaway! I love contests, and I hope to hold them often here at Modern Frugality.

The prizes will be as follows:

Winner #1: $15 Amazon gift code
Winner #2: $10 Party America gift card
Winner #3: $10 NBA Store gift card


Eligibility: Open only to U.S. Residents
How to enter: Simply post a comment below (post anything you want, I'm not picky!) Please be sure to have an email on file or include it here so that I have a way to contact you if you win.
Entry frequency: You may enter one time per day throughout the duration of the contest.
Duration: Contest will end on April 25, 2009 at 11:59 pm Eastern.
Winners: Three winners will be determined at random after the contest has ended. I will email the winners and announce them here. Winners must respond with mailing address within 3 days of notification or they will forfeit the prize and a new winner will be drawn.

DAILY BONUS ENTRY #1: To gain a bonus entry, post a second comment with a tip on how I can improve my website or what you'd most like to see posted here. I am not by any means an expert at creating a website, so I would love any feedback you can offer. You may gain one bonus entry per day by posting a suggestion (please make your suggestion different from day to day).

DAILY BONUS ENTRY #2: You may gain a third entry each day by posting about this contest on another website. Twitter about it, whatever, even tell someone you know in person and that will work. Post a separate comment telling me how you spread the word.

Thank you, and good luck!

Very nice layout of the site. Really like the banner.

Good luck with the site! It is certainly a timely subject. I like the flowers. :)

Daily bonus -- almost every chain restaurant in the U.S. offers a free meal on your birthday. I notice that you have some restaurants listed on your birthday freebes section, but there are dozens more. But overall, it's a great site! I especially like the paid survey sites section. I'm a member of 15 of the sites you have listed, but I'm going to check out the rest. Thanks! bluemoves [at] hotmail [dot] com

Congrats on the launch of your site! It's really helpful to have a list of freebies and paid survey opportunities -- it might also be useful to add a brief description of the latter (e.g., what kind of time commitment they entail, what the potential rewards/compensations are, etc.). Thanks for the giveaway!
