Giveaway Time!

It is finally time for the first round of giveaways at The Pen Addict!  I really appreciate all of the support I have had since starting this blog, and it is time I started to give something back to you, the reader.  I have four giveaways in total to dish out over the next few weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out.

Everyone knows I am a huge fan of JetPens, and the good people at JetPens have been a big part of the success of The Pen Addict.  They have been kind enough to donate three $10 gift certificates to their online store for this round of giveaways - thank you JetPens team!

I'm a pretty simple guy, so I am going to keep the rules for these giveaways as simple as possible:

1. Leave one comment on this post anytime between now, and Thursday night at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  You are limited to one entry.

2. For this contest, I will pick three winners (one for each gift certificate) at random from the comments section of this post.  The comments will be numbered in the order they are received, i.e. the first comment is #1, the second #2, and so on.  The random number generator at randomizer.org http://www.randomizer.org/ will be used to pick the numbers of the winners.

3. The contest winners will be posted on Friday, October, 17th.  The winners will have one week to email me at the email address posted in the right sidebar.

And that's it.

If you have any questions about the contest please email me directly - do not post them in the comments section.  If it is an issue that I feel needs to be addressed, I will update this post with any additional information.

Thanks, and good luck!

Hi! I've been a lurker on this site for some time and I thought today would be a good day to start contributing (not that I have anything worth saying, really). Love the site - keep up the good work! =)

Steveareno said...

Your site is a regular stop for me first thing in the morning. I have you to thank for my wonderful A. G. Spalding ballpoint. Thanks for all you do.

I looooooooooove JetPens. When I'm bored at work (shhhhh) I hop on over to JetPens and buy me some awesome pens and pencil cases. I have spent way too much this year on their site. It's just so easy- I want everything!!! And nothing beats a great Japanese pen. My current fav...the Pentel Slicci!

~~~Leaving a Comment~~~

Pam said...

Oooh... me too!! I like to enter draws!

I never comment, mostly because I use a reader that makes it harder than it should be to comment from work (where I get most of my blog reading time)... but I read all the posts because.... well... i'm obsessed with pens!

jasedit said...

I'd love to have a chance to try another fountain pen. I've been reading this blog for a bit now, and love the posts!

Ni said...

Hallo! :) I've been lurking on your blog for a while, and usually check your tags and archives first whenever i spot a pen I might want to try. Thank you for enabling my pen geekery!

Scott said...

A Sharpie Pen, A Copic .03 Multiliner (and then a whole set), and a beautiful Pure Malt leadholder. You are not helping me lessen my addiction :)

robertpaul said...

My addiction is getting worse and worse .... thanks to this site !Thanks!

Mr. Pants said...

Free stuff is good. Free pens are BETTER!

I also just wanted to give a quick thanks for the work put into your reviews. They helped me pick out a couple of starter pens (a Sharpie Pen and some G2s) in a pen upgrade I was going through.

I look forward to reading more reviews and eventually finding that magical pen that I'll never be able to live without. Thanks!

I really appreciate your site and have become a regular visitor. Thanks for offering this little contest.

By the way, have you considered writing about your favorite pens that may have become discontinued or hard to find? There are quite a few that I've hoarded in the past and I'm always interested to hear about others' past favorites.

Hi, a pen addict here. And recently upgraded to fountain pens also. I really love the reviews. Hope to see more coming. Perhaps you can start on fountain pens and bottled inks. There's a whole lot more combinations involve. Fountain pen A and ink B and paper C. It'll give a different feel when you match it differently everytime. ;)

I just found this the other day while searching for a pen I love and couldn't remember where I bought it. It is the new sharpie pen. Anyways I stumbled on a cool basement that was decorated completely by $10 worth of sharpie pens. Did you see it? katy

Your blog has turned a dormant taste into an active passion, so let's hope my collection grows out of luck!
