A Tempting Offer

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely people at Saturn & Real Simple Magazine let me host a House Party. For those unfamiliar with the concept, check out this website for all the cool info. The most exciting things for me were the swag (AKA "free stuff") and the vehicle that they loaned me for 4 days. Check it out.
Aren't I stylin' in my fly Saturn Outlook?
Big A says, "Look, there's plenty of room for me & all of my friends!"
And both A's agree that there's plenty of room for groceries and shopping bags in the back.
We seriously had a ball driving this car around for a few days. I lived vicariously for a while and was a menace on the road. It was very different than driving the Fisher Price car that I truly own. I almost shed a tear when I handed the keys back to the dealer and watched him drive it back to the de-germing zone.

After all the festivities were over, I got an email thanking me for my participation and telling me that an extra goody was on it's way to me. Be still my beating heart. More.Free.Stuff?!?! So, like an anxious puppy dog waiting for it's owner, I sat by the window every day for a week, in eager anticipation of the mail. And last Saturday, it arrived.

It was a voucher for a $500 Target Giftcard. Thump. (That was me hitting the floor when I passed out upon seeing FREE $500 TARGET GIFTCARD in bold red letters) The catch is, I will receive it if I purchase or lease a new Saturn vehicle by Dec. 1. And hubby thinks I'm nuts for considering this offer for even 1 moment. Ok, the moment has passed. But here's some good news for someone else.

I can transfer this offer to 1 person. Woo hoo!! If you are in the market for a 2008/09 non-hybrid Saturn vehicle and plan to purchase this vehicle by Dec. 1st, I would love to give this offer to you. However, I'm only giving it to someone who is actually going to use it. I simply cannot let it go to waste. So, let me know if you or someone you know is planning this kind of car purchase. I want to pay it forward.

That actually is not a bad looking car! Had I not just bought a new Pilot in June, I'd totally consider it as my car was definitely needing replacement. What a neat concept. Are you suuuuuuure you don't want a new Saturn?

Rhea said...

You're awesome to pass this along to someone who's planning on buying a car! What a cool little incentive. That car is nice looking too.

JANE said...

OMG, a $500 to TARGET!!!! And just think, your friends could have joined you there to give you shopping support!!!

Sure you don't want a Saturn??

Julianne said...

You DO look good in that car! Man, those Saturn people are marketing geniuses!

Brandy said...

What a gorgeous car...and I'm almost sorry I'm not in the market for a new car. $500 to Target is appealing.

Shannon said...

Shane did not agree with my logic... so no new car for me.

We should find a way to get Saturn to GIVE this car to all of us...the Mommy Blabbers...we can share. Tell the Saturn peeps will give them regular shout-outs, & this ride will be used to shuttle all of us around. It's for our's for the greater good. I think the folks at Saturn need to take this to heart.

I am thinking that you really do need a Saturn...and not a Fisher Price car. Really. Just think of all the Christmas shopping you could do - both with the gift card and the car!

I have got to host myself a house party...

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

WOW!!!!!!!1 That's like the coolest thing ever. How did you ever find out about that??????

Jennifer said...

i want a new car.
i like that new car.
i want $500 to target.
i need $500 for target.
i want to go in my new car to target and shop for free... with $500.

but the problem with all that is that it says "I" and the big turd that makes up the "WE" in my life... you know aka my husband... wouldn't go for it now. ugh.

men!! some times they are just NO fun!!

very cool thing though. i will have to click the link and read all about it. :)

That's pretty cool! My FIL has had Saturns for years and loves his.
I won't be getting anything new and neat like that for some time. Still driving my old silver Taurus.
