Each year, I give away hundreds of dollars in gift cards on social media. Typically, I give away no more than one gift card (or gift certificate) in a month, and it will have a value of approx. $50. Most often, it will be redeemable at a local restaurant.
Complete giveaway rules can be found here.
Why give away gift cards, you ask?
Well, as I explained in a previous post, it…
- …supports local businesses.
- …highlights some of what makes our communities great.
- …rewards my followers.
- …allows me to connect with local residents by email.
So, less than two weeks into the new year, I thought it would be fun to look back at all the great local people who won my gift card giveaways in 2022.
And here I am, purchasing the gift cards and posing for a photo outside with them.
You may have seen these photos floating around social media throughout the year.
Was that all?
It’s probably also worth mentioning that, early in 2022, I also gave away a $3,000 vacation to one lucky winner. But since only existing clients of mine were eligible to enter that giveaway, I decided not to include it in this post.
Will there be new public giveaways in 2023?
