5 days of giveaways

5 Days of Giveaways social media contest

Starting on Monday, December 4th, you can participate in our big social media contest to get a prize everyday of the week! Here is the breakdown of what you need to do:


Take a picture/selfie of you in an ugly Christmas sweater, upload it into the comment section of Facebook and get a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card!


Send a picture of your favourite childhood holiday memory in the comments! It could be a picture of you opening a present, sitting beside your Christmas tree or sitting on Santa’s lap. Anything from Christmas works! By doing this, you can win a $50 VISA gift card!


This one is a “fill in the blank” contest where we’ll ask you what you want for Christmas, then you’ll fill in the blank with something you want to receive under the tree this year. As long as your request is within reason, we’ll get that gift for the lucky winner!


We’ve got an awesome gift pack that includes some classic Christmas movies, hot chocolate, Christmas candies, ornaments and more! All you need to do is share the photo, and we’ll randomly select someone to win the basket!


Take a picture of yourself in some snow, or get a picture in the past with some snow and upload the picture in the comments to get a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card!
