I almost never blog about contests, but I singled out this contest to win a free subscription to Better Homes & Gardens because 10,000 winners will receive the mag for a year. Sign up by Dec. 17, 2010, at 11:59 p.m. EST to qualify.
The contest is being run by Avon, which is paying for the prizes. A year-long subscription to Better Homes & Gardens normally costs $6. You will be getting e-mails and mailed materials from Avon if you sign up, no doubt. The entry form also asks for your phone number. In fact, by entering this contest, you are sharing your info with a number of businesses beyond Avon, the contest sponsor. "Sponsor may also include your name and postal address in postal address lists that Sponsor sells or rents to third parties for marketing purposes."
Is saving $6 worth it? You be the judge.
Caveats: you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the United States, excluding Puerto Rico, to be eligible to win.
