Contest: How Much Do You Know About

November 9th, 2013 · 2 Comments

I wanted to do something fun to celebrate the sixth anniversary of, so I’ve come up with a contest.  This is a bit of a trivia scavenger hunt through all of the things that I have written about on my blog over the last six years.  So, you’ll have to search through the 871 posts from the last six years to get the right answers, but they’ll be easy enough to find using the various navigation and search features for my blog.  I will pick three lucky winners from all of the correct entries and they will each win gift cards worth $100.00 US (or it’s equivalent in your local currency)!  If you decide to enter, you’ll just need to email me the correct answers after you spend some quality time with my blog; that way everyone has to do their own searching for the right answers.

*****This contest is now closed!*****

Contest Questions:

  1. What was the title of my very first post for this blog and what date was it published?
  2. What was the title of the post where I announced my move to London and what was the picture of in the post?
  3. What is the best deal or buy that I have ever gotten at Costco and what date did I write about it?
  4. What tag have I used the most?
  5. What was the name of the CNBC Costco documentary that I was in and when did it premiere in the US?
  6. What is my favorite Kirkland Signature item?  And what is yours?

If you don’t understand one of the questions, please feel free to ask for clarification in the comments.  I want to make sure everyone has the best chance of winning!

    According to the rules you will be selecting three from “everyone that has responded.” It doesn’t say the answers have to be correct so I assume all entries regardless of answers are eligible for the prizes.

      @Fred – Sorry, I just updated that to be more specific that you must respond with the correct answers. I apologize for the confusion or ambiguity.
