A Different Giveaway — NonFood

When I signed up for myblogspark, I told the ladies I was interested in other things besides food. I mean, I love food, but my world doesn’t COMPLETELY revolve around it or I’d be losing the battle at the gym every day.

In addition to food, I’m a bit of a car nut. I love cars, reading about them, looking at them, driving them. I stubbornly purchased another coupe (with a powerful engine) instead of buying something “practical” when my first car up and died on me. (It should probably be mentioned that my first car was a sports car too — I sense a theme!)

In addition to cars in general, I’m a bit of a fiend for car products.

Rejex, for example, is god’s gift to a beautiful car — and with proper application, the stuff lasts SIX MONTHS! It’s awesome, and it makes your car look like you’ve spent every single day working on it.

This giveaway, though, is focused around Rain-X. Rain-X makes a variety of products that are supposed to assist you in seeing better during precipitation — be it rain, snow, sleet, or just the slap of that nasty brown gunk off the 18-wheeler in front of you.

Most of their products are sprays or treatments that you put on the glass — and they all work. They help the moisture bead differently, so your wipers can whisk it away more efficiently.

It’s really awesome stuff.

myblogspark provided me with a free set of Rain-X’s new windshield wipers, and two of their glass care products (a pre-treatment, and then the customary Rain-X windshield cleaner/protectorant).

Admittedly, I was skeptical. These wiper blades are pricey to purchase. But come on — they’re wiper blades!

Oh, was I wrong. They’re NOT just wiper blades. They’re some kind of magical wiper-blade-from-the-future that whisks EVERY. OUNCE. of moisture out of my way, while NEVER SMEARING.

It’s like having someone outside constantly wiping your windshield clean — it’s that awesome.

So even though you probably read this blog for food — seriously, enter the contest. Even if you don’t give a rat’s butt about the quality of your windshield wipers, enter the contest.

Give them to your dad. Give them to your husband.

Heck, you could give them as a gift to any male you know and they’d most likely be thrilled.

But I secretly hope you keep them for yourself. πŸ™‚ Express the car geek inside that you never knew you had!

Contest Details

Contest will end at 8:00 p.m. on March 25th, 2009. Winner will be chosen by Random Integer Generator.

Contest winnings include:

  • 1 set of Rain-X windshield wipers
  • 1 bottle of 2-in-1 Rain-X windshield cleaner and rain repellent
  • 1 bottle of Rain-X Extreme Clean – which helps remove residue, build-up, and road grime from your glass and headlights

If you’re my winner, you must respond to me by March 26th with your car’s year, make, and model (this is so you receive the wipers that fit the car you want to put them on…so if you are giving them away, make sure you give the right car!)

To enter, just leave me a comment…any comment, but if you need a topic, leave me a comment about something you enjoy that others would find surprising (like my love of cars).

Have fun!

    Great Giveaway. New wipers are always a good thing. I think people forget how important it is to have good wipers until they need them.

  4. KRM Says:

    I recently saw a commercial for these and thought they were the coolest thing! We use regular rain-x already – I have when I can’t see from rain!

    Thanks for the great givaway, Kelly!

  7. Julie Says:
