  1. Pamela Curry says

    I fell at xmas, the hardest part of recovering was keeping the litter clean, I will be getting the World’s Best or Pine Litter, both easier on them and me than clay.

  2. Jennifer Brown says

    I plan on rewarding myself by buying chocolate or something special for date night in with hubby.

  3. lisa says

    How awsome!!!! I think for sure I would love to spend the gift card on all the new shampoos and beauty items that are coming out, and some of the more expensive ones that I could not normally afford.

  4. Bridgette says

    I plan to use the GC for meats/produce. While I can stock my pantry and household shelves pretty well with coupon deals, saving on meat and produce is more challenging.

  5. April says

    I plan to give my gift card to my mom. She has had some hard times lately and while i coupon to help her out, i know she doesnt always share with me everything she may need. So with the gift cards i can give them to her and she can pick up a few things and offset the cost of her groceries with it.

  6. Judy says

    I will put it towards necessities – food or non-food. Gift cards help me get a little “ahead” and I need that.

  7. Debbie Bennett says

    Would definitely buy items that I can’t buy with coupons, like meats, fruits and vegetables.

  8. felicia p says

    While, I don’t know yet. I will save my gift card for more good things you put on your web site. SAVE IT FOR THAT.

  9. Kristin G says

    I would probably buy one of those yummy desserts in the bakery!! I never want to spend the money on them, but they just look sooo delicious!!

  10. Nichelle says

    I think I would use the gift card on itmes that are harder to find coupons for. Fresh produce and meat!

  11. Courtney says

    I Feel Like I Should Spend On Diapers And Stuff For My Little BOys, But I WouldTry To Get Something For Me AS Well…Maybe Some Reeses And Some ice Cream :)

  12. April Wilson says

    I would use the gift card to purchase more groceries and health/beauty items we use everyday. $20 or $30 extra would help out a lot!

  13. Kristian W says

    I would use the gift card toward my grocery budget. Saving money and feeling financially secure is a reward. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  14. Betty says

    I plan on getting a pedicure!!! Ahhh. The foot massage is well worth the amount of money but for free, YES PLEASE!!!

  15. Sherri says

    I will reward my husband and my son by buying some extra goodies for them! I love buying stuff for my boys!

  16. janina says

    I would use the gift card to splurge on some organic produce, such as strawberries and blueberries. They are just so expensive, and $10 or $20 would definitely help.

  17. KC says

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! I would use it to splurge on more P&G items. Perhaps get items for a in-home spa afternoon!!! :-)

  18. Tammy says

    I would spend on my 3 kiddos and let them pick what they want with no coupons! How happy that would make them lol!!

  19. Rita says

    I save all of my rebate money and put it in a little fund for my husband and I to take mini trips. We are seniors on a fixed income so there is not much money in the budget for travel. I still like to feel a little sand between my toes and hear that ocean now and then and hubby loves the mountains. We live in Georgia and can drive to both mountains or beach but we have to watch the cost and of course I use coupons to make it all happen.

  20. Misty Leininger says

    I save all money saved with rebates in our vacation account. Little by little we are saving up the money to go to France!

  21. Crazedmommyof3 says

    I’m going to stock up on Head & Shoulders and be able to get a romantic lamb dinner for me and hubby…all while looking fabulous and flake free!

  22. says

    $50.bucks is a big help, if i win this , since it’s from PG, i’ll spend it on buying more Olay products specially the new items ….

  23. BrendaFL says

    I would use the the gift card to help purchase items for me to donate to my favorite charities.

  24. Anne says

    I would “reward” my mom! She’s on a fixed income and I help her with my extras from couponing! A “shopping spree” for herself would be wonderful! She turned 83 yesterday and looks and acts like she’s in her 60’s!

  25. Carrie says

    I’ll use the gift card on coconut milk. I like to stock up but the one I like is only on sale every so often. I’d love the Olay products! I’m going have to go look up what “Dewy Gel” is though LOL!

    Thanks Michelle!

  26. Allie in SC says

    I’d spent it on the healthier, organic foods that I normally can’t fit in our grocery budget.. And of course – More veggies, more fruits!

  27. JoAnne says

    I would buy MEAT! Coupons are so scarce for actual meat that I am sure the kids and I are short on protiens!

  28. Briana says

    I would splurge on some GOOD steaks. They are hardly ever on sale for my budget and we miss steak!

  29. Melody says

    Since we are in the process of moving from Georgia to North Carolina, I would use it for moving costs & to save money on gas! Thanks for the giveaways! Love them!

  30. says

    Love this rebate. These are all products I purchase at least once a month sometimes more. Thanks for all the great information and I will use the gift card to buy some meat that I usually can’t get with a coupon.

  31. Anna says

    I plan to stretch the gift card to cover my balances after coupons. I figure $20 should last 2 years :)

  32. Ash says

    I would stock up on some meat and maybe try some organic produce. Maybe splurge and get some shrimp for dinner!

  33. Cindy E says

    I will give the gift card to my daughter that’s attending college. She can buy herself groceries.

  34. Verna says

    I would buy some Ball Park Flame Grilled Hamburgers, some veggies and splurge on some Pinwheels (about $4.99 at Publix); Strawberries to go in the center of them along with some whipped cream.

  35. susan says

    I would use it to purchase meat and vegetables, since they are hardly any coupons for these items….

  36. amber bedizel says

    I would use to have a romantic valentine dinner with my hubby after 18yrs and 3 kids….lamb chops and a nice bottle of wine…oh and capri sun and chicken tenders for kids!!!!!

  37. melanie says

    I would buy more fresh fruits and vegetables and stock up on the things that rarely/never go on sale.

  38. Laura says

    This would be great to help me with my move!’s sooo expensive to move! I would stock up on my dwindling stockpile since I’ve been trying to downsize for the move I’m worried I’ll be hit with a huge bill to refill the gaps!

  39. Laura says

    Also, one more thing…the Dewey Gel is AWESOME. I got some last week with the sale and coupon and I LOVE it!

  40. says

    I would stock up on cat litter!! It seems cat litter deals are few and far between and well that’s just poo 😉 Thank-you Michelle for this chance!

  41. Paula says

    I will treat myself to a long overdue, beautiful bottle of wine and a long bath. :) (Not normally part of the budget or daily routine!)

  42. MaggieB says

    I plan to use my Publix gift card–hopefully I’ll earn $20–to buy some nice products for my self, like those Olay skincare products I’ve been reading about.

  43. Vickie says

    I would use it as a treat for me! As I cook everyday..momma wants a night out..LOL..or at the very least a publix chicken with the fixings..We haven’t gone out to eat in a couple years now..IT IS TIME..way, over due. lol
    Thanks for the chance Michelle.

  44. saundra says

    I would just feel so blessed. Honestly, I don’t know exactly what I would do with it, but I would do my best for my family.

  45. Deb Barrett says

    I would use it for the OOP after coupons! I love to coupon… especially at Publix! It has saved me and my family so much and I am able to help my friends and family more than ever before.

  46. Audrey says

    This would be a wonderful reward for myself! Currently in Nursing School and will be graduating this coming April!!!!! So EXCITED and would like nothing better than to maybe buy a steak and some veggies to grill out and celebrate!! To be more specific I will probably get a filet mignon b/c that is a cut of meat I would NEVER buy. Might even go for a lobster tail too! :)

  47. jenessa says

    I would use it to buy fresh fruits and meats that there is hardly ever any coupons for !! Trying to stock up the fridge and freezer so we can stay in and eat at home as a family !! Thanks for the chance:)

  48. Melinda M says

    I would reward myself with the gift card I earned by buying some big juicy ribeye steaks for me…I would share with my hubby too! Hehe

  49. Blair says

    We’ve been saving a lot because we just bought our first house! We’ve had to buy furniture, pay movers,!etc etc etc! That’s one reason I started couponing ( which I’m now almost addicted to doing!). I’d use any extra money saved to help decorate the house. We still need some furniture and decorum for our mantle, entry way, and so on.

  50. susan says

    My goal for the New Year is to eat healthy food and loose weight. Organic dairy, grass fed beef, more fruits and veggies, ect. This would help so much in reducing the cost of eating real food. I heard the saying, “Pay the farmer (buy real food) or pay the pharmacist” I use coupons and sales the best I can for these products, but still more expensive. Would love the gift card to help with the cost of eating well and being healthy. Publix offers good choices with their Green Wise brands, Thanks Publix and Thanks I Heart Publix.

  51. Michelle says

    I plan to reward my self with a sushi dinner from publix , their sushi is great and healthy (if you do not buy the mayo one of course ) and my husband ans son love it. It also gives me a break from cooking at a reasonable price ( lot cheaper than going to a restaurant :))

  52. Alicia H says

    Reuse it in the grocery budget! It’s not like I could buy Jimmy Choos with it at Publix or anything, anyway 😉

  53. Dana says

    I would use the gift card to buy my puppies and kitties (aka my fur babies) all kinds of treats and goodies from Publix. My neighbors have a bunch of dogs too- I would share with them. Of course, I would also love to try Olay’s new products as well. I just bought some Fresh Effects make up removal wipes last week and I love them!

  54. Vanessa says

    I plan on using mine to buy some nice products in order to fill really GOOD goody bags for my daughters birthday party. What good is knowing how to coupon and save if you don’t share the wealth!!!!

  55. Torri says

    I LOVE Olay products! I have always used them and would love to get some more of the higher end creams!

  56. says

    I would use it to buy more organic food that doesn’t have coupons. I’m trying to eat healthier and this will be a big help as they are so expensive.

  57. Dorothy says

    I would use at the Pharmacy for a pricey prescription. Thanks IHP and P&G for the opportunity.

  58. Lisa Branham says

    I would use it to buy more groceries that my coupons don’t cover. Money is really tight in my household.

  59. Heather says

    I will be using my gift card to get more items the next time I shop. Probably more health and beauty deals or just more groceries! Maybe splurge on a special dessert for my kids and hubby. :)

  60. johnnie jones says

    well i actually plan on having a coupon class with some of the people at my church and i will give the giftcard away for a newbie to start couponing so they will have to use a little less out of pocket to start.

  61. Amy Letourneau says

    I would buy some fine cuts of beef, some great vegetables and fruits and possibly a nice Publix dessert. Another thought would be some of the awesome sub sandwiches for the family!!

  62. Wanda Townson says

    My daughter is in college 6 hours away so she doesn’t get to come home often. There’s a new Publix in the area. I’ve showed her how to coupon, so she enjoys sharing all the information with others. I would give the gift card to her to buy things to cook and share with roommates and her boyfriend (they are trying to learn to cook together) HA. Sweet!

  63. says

    I would use it on things we don’t usually see coupons for like fresh meat and milk. It seems that I always need these things and they can be quite expensive!

  64. marie says

    Probably buy items for the schools in our area where all our kiddies had to spend the night last week with all the ice…lots of thank yous to get out there!!!

  65. Stephanie says

    I would just use it towards the items that are more difficult to save money on like meat and organic produce.

  66. DAWN says

    No room in the budget for rewards, I would just use it to coupon some more groceries!! The gift basket would be a NICE reward!

  67. Leslie says

    I would use the gift card to buy some Publix subs for me and the family. Love Love Publix subs!

  68. Margaret says

    My budget hasn’t allowed for any girlie things in a long time. A gift basket would be fun, but the gift card is always welcome to take some of the pressure off!

  69. Sandy says

    Love to get a gift basket just for me :-) I would use the gift card towards our weekly groceries to save even more!

  70. Valerie Way says

    Put it towards car repairs. She’s really being demanding lately. I love that car tho, so I keep throwing money at her to keep her going. 😀

  71. Kim B. says

    Fruits!!! and fresh seafood. My poor husband just found that his triglycerides are too high and his “ratio” is alarmingly high (he’s only 32!). So we are trying to eat healthier but fruit (and fresh seafood) is just soo expensive.

  72. Jennifer m says

    I would put the gift card toward a swing set for my little girl this summer. She has been asking for a swing.

  73. debbie h says

    I will have a special day with my 10 grandkids. I don’t get to see them has often as I want.So I will use the card to get some goodies and we will have a play day at the park or the lake.

  74. Stacey says

    I would love to see how much I could get with Publix’s fantastic bogo sales..always need food with 5 guys in the house!

  75. says

    I would buy all the ingredients for a nice meal, a bottle of wine, and a great dessert from the bakery and have a romantic candlelight dinner with my husband of almost 37 years. (and of course I would still use my coupons along with the giftcard to do all this!)

  76. busymom2 says

    I would use it for Pantene Expert Age Defy, I love that stuff but can’t get it that often because of the cost. Would really love the Olay products too-expecially the Regenerist….

  77. Nancy says

    If I won, I’d reward myself by using the gift card to stock up on some of the Publix BOGO offers!

  78. Lena says

    Of course I’d use it at Publix….Where shopping is a’s see how long it takes my husband and 6 kids to figure out I’m not home…. I confess I’m a Publix addict!

  79. Cindy Smith says

    If chosen as a winner of a gift card, I would go to Publix and use my gift card, manufacturer coupons, store coupons and competitor coupons and fill my cart with more Pantene products, of course!! I love Pantene!!!

  80. Michelle says

    I would use mine on fresh meat and produce! That is if I can make it past the bakery, I may have to satisfy my publix tiramisu addiction.

  81. Erin says

    I would buy a nice package of steaks, some shrimp, a bottle of wine, and make a great grilling night with my husband!

  82. Denise says

    I have been using the Regenerist line for several years and LOVE the
    product, so I will use my gift card towards more of it at Publix.

  83. Felicha Hanley says

    I would love to win the giveaway, I will use the products everyday and with the gift card, I will do more couponing!

  84. Nicole says

    I’d use it to restock my freezer with meats since warm weather and grilling is in hopefully in the near future.

  85. Julie says

    With $50 at Publix, I would buy my usual groceries and use the savings in my food budget to help pay for a trip to Idaho this May to see my daughter graduate from her Master’s program at the University of Idaho!

  86. karen says

    My birthday is on the 25th and I would love to start my morning with a big bowl of delicious berries. Expensive this time of year so I would treat myself.

  87. Sarah DeArmond says

    I would get some fresh fish. Probably the red snapper. My husband and I love to make eating healthy fun. So, it’s nice to save money doing so!

  88. Sherri Nunn says

    I would use most of gift card for meat…I have always wanted to try lamb..and save some for Publix bakery doughnuts! Thanks for opportunity!

  89. Christy Trevino says

    Buying healthy choices to get me back on track on my diet. And lots of Pure Protein chocolate shakes!!

  90. Amanda m says

    A nice cut of meat. We don’t seem to get too much of that anymore. It’s only what’s on sale or hot dogs we have a pretty tight budget. So a few extra dollars I would splurge.

  91. Alicia Sparks says

    My husband and I would go out to dinner, and stop at Publix on the way home to splurge on ice-cream! We love each picking our own flavors!

  92. Irene Potter says

    My widowed Mom is in poor health and housebound, and I would buy her some extra special goodies to have in her fridge and pantry!

  93. Lisa Vance says

    I’m on disability and have a very limited income these days (although I’m only 44), so I’d use the gift certificate to help me buy a great birthday present for my boyfriend who’s birthday is St. Patrick’s Day

  94. Anne says

    I’m thinking that gift card would buy me a nice tasty steak :) Have to reward yourself for being so frugal!!

  95. melissa stephens says

    Due to a lot of health issues I need to take time to pamper myself. If I won I would enjoy feeling like a queen and light candles, run a hot bath and use my Olay products

  96. Courtnie says

    I would use the gift card to buy diapers so i can use my diaper budget to get a pedicure. Something this busy mommy gave up when i had kiddos

  97. Adrianne says

    I have been wanting to make a Publix Apron recipe but find that I am always missing an ingredient or a few. Last time I got a great sample and the chef at Publix told me that I could buy all the ingredients right there in one place by the sample station. How convenient! I would love to just pick up the ingredients there and prepare dinner with my husband (along with a bottle of wine). How FUN.

    Go TEAM USA!

  98. Teresa F says

    I have made a New Years Resolution to change my families eating habits so I would use the gift card to buy organic fruit at Publix. Thank you.

  99. Donna says

    It’s all about the babies right now for me. I will buy some Pampers for “free” to help out the grocery budget for the week and load up on extra snacks with the excess.

  100. jamie pollard says

    I would buy big thick steaks for my hubby to grill up for us to enjoy together. Steak is not normally in the budget so it would be a treat :)

  101. Julia says

    I always put GC money into a savings fund. Last year, I used it to redo my daughter’s room while she was gone for the summer. This year, I will use it to help pay for my mother’s 70th birthday party!

  102. Kathryn W. says

    I will use it for groceries in general, or to have some friends over and make some tasty, low calorie shrimp asparagus yumminess cooked in white wine vinegar, olive oil, fresh basil and garlic!

  103. says

    I would give the gift card to a friend of mine who is having tough time. She could use it to help buy milk and bread for her kids.

  104. says

    I will use it when there is a great deal on pet products so I can stock up and take it to a local no-kill animal shelter (ARNI in Daytona Beach). Oh, and a bottle of Sangria…for me. 😉

  105. Felicia says

    Atlanta: What a COOL giveaway! Thanks for the chance — we’d buy more of our favorite stockpile items if we won.

  106. Kathy R says

    Would love this. I would put back into budget for use at my grocery store, Publix, so I could purchase items for our home and to pass on to others.

  107. Jan says

    This year my brother and sister and I are focused on bringing our families together for holiday dinners. I will use it to help purchase the food for our Easter gathering!

  108. Jennifer R says

    I would use it to stock my chest freezer I got for Christmas! I can take advantage of meat and frozen item deals now!

  109. Victoria says

    I would splurge on a special meal. We haven’t done a beef wellington in a long time. Mmmm fillet mignon.

  110. Ashleigh Hall says

    I would use the gift card to share with a needy family or buy groceries for them and help the eat better next month! :)

  111. Tahme says

    My son’s FIFTH birthday is coming soon!!! I would use it to buy his birthday cake and goodies for the party. You know, the big #5 is a very special birthday!

  112. April says

    Publix recently opened in my area. I will use the gift card to buy some of the yummy products I see there, but haven’t tried yet. My family will love getting new treats to try.

  113. Sharon R says

    I’d use the gift card for flowers – I love the flowers at Publix, the bouquets are so pretty!

  114. Katie says

    I will use it to buy delicious things that only I enjoy…La Croix, cheesecake – ok, and maybe buy a bottle of wine to share with my husband! 😉

  115. NancyNurse says

    I would use the Gift Card for getting my vegetable garden up and running this spring. I would like a second raised bed for my peppers and tomatoes. It helps with my grocery budget to have some produce in my own backyard.

  116. Chris says

    I typically save my GCs for emergencies…
    sometimes things happen that I didn’t budget for… so, I can pull from the grocery budget for the emergency and use the card for groceries.

  117. Marge says

    I’m using mine on Publix sushi! Those are expensive with no coupons available but are great for emergency lunch. :)

  118. kara says

    our 13 year old daughter would looove the gift basket + i would use the gift cards for a special dinner for my husband + me! everyone wins! :-)

  119. Theresa says

    I would love to try out the new Olay products! Thats the only brand I use:) As for the gift card, I am going to take my mom out to dinner!!!

  120. Telisha says

    I plan on trying the new Olay products, the Fresh effect packaging just makes me want to buy it, but not in the budget this year so far!

  121. Lily says

    Thanks for the contest Michelle! I have about 2 drops of moisturizer left, so yeah, would love that gift basket. I’d buy seafood, meat and produce.

  122. Terry Wolstencroft says

    I would first faint because I never have won anything! After waking up from my dead faint I would photo-copy my prize announcement and then purchase some wonderful products to share. Being able to afford to help others is a wonderful feeling I greatly treasure.

  123. Allison says

    I’d use the gift card for meat/produce. Hubby and I are on a diet, and sticking to it is proving to be expensive!!

  124. Anita says

    I’m “stockpiling” gift cards so when I get a certain amount hubby and I can get food with gift cards and use our food budget money for a vacation. My husband lost his job a few years ago and our family took quite a pay cut. He makes enough to live on but we don’t have a lot of fun money. So I’m putting our savings on gift cards and researching trips.

  125. Alana says

    I would use the gift card to contribute to a Valentines Day/ Birthday present for my favorite person. That Olay bundle would me a great Feel good for myself. Thanks so much to P&G for their generosity!

  126. Di says

    I would use the gift card on a special treat not usually on sale – maybe a nice steak to enjoy with the hubby who hasn’t been well recently. good luck everyone!

  127. Danielle says

    I would give the gift card to a amazing lady that I know who has dedicated her life to taking care of severely disabled children. The gift card would give her a little extra to purchase the things that she needs to take care of her home and her family. I would love to win the P & G Olay bundle also but I would also give it to her for those times when she just needs a little something for a pick me up.

  128. Danielle Alana says

    With the $20 gift card, I plan on buying MORE groceries for my toddler and I, specifically, he drinks almond milk, so I want to stock up on that since the expiration dates are pretty long and can keep a few half gallons in the fridge.

  129. Megan B says

    I plan to reward myself by getting a nice bottle of wine, and having a good old fashion girls night in!

  130. Keri says

    I would just add it to my weekly shopping money. Buying groceries for a family of six can get expensive, especially with a teenage boy! Thanks

  131. Amy says

    I plan to purchase a bottle of wine and some good snacks from the Publix deli! And open it when the kiddos go to bed! It is cheaper than a date night which is hard to do these days with a huge grocery bill. Just add a Redbox and call it date. 😉

  132. Laura says

    I just did the deal today with Pantene. Already submitted the receipts and am done! Thanks for the heads up on this awesome promo!
