In partnership with the makers of Schick personal grooming products.
If I could enter the Schick Shop Free for a Year Contest myself, I'd probably not be telling you about it now. That's because the Grand Prize is a $15,000 pre-paid Visa gift card. Yep, 15 thousand dollars. But because this is a post written in partnership with Schick, I can't enter it. Waaaaaah!
Last month I hosted an awesome #ShopFree Twitter party (thank you again to moderator Elaine Atkins and all the fun lovelies who took part) to ask how participants would spend the Grand Prize if they won. Answers varied from new bags to new shoes to a whole new wardrobe to a vacation to a new car ($15K wouldn't last a year in that case). Naturally, I also imagined what my first purchases would be if I were the lucky winner (again, waaaah!). Today -- because things change from day to day, don't they? -- the items below are highest on my splurge list.
I'd also stock up on some of my must-have staples: Skintimates Signature Scents Moisturizing Shave Gel in Mandarin Burst (I'm such a sucker for citrussy scents, and of course a closer, more comfortable and longer-lasting shave doesn't hurt either); the new Schick Hydrosilk Sensitive Care Razor with a hypoallergenic moisturizing serum built into the cartridge; and the new Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle (I'm one of those who never thinks far enough in advance to book a waxing appointment -- sorry, TMI?).
how to enter the shop free for a year contest
You have until September 30th 2015 to enter the Schick Shop Free for a Year Contest. And to do so, you need a unique PIN code, which you can get one of two ways:
1) When you need to re-up on your favourite Schick items, be sure to purchase specially marked Schick products that contain a PIN code -- see below. You then use that PIN to enter the contest at wesetyoufree.ca.
2) To enter without making a purchase, simply write a 50-word essay titled "Why Schick® is my Preferred Brand" and mail it to the following address:
