Today’s article is a little different. I haven’t done a giveaway in years. It’s not that I don’t enjoy giving stuff away, I just feel like 99% of people get zero value from the article and the lucky winner gets 100% of the value. (Cue Statler and Waldorf with a joke about how this is an improvement from my typical article, where 100% of people get zero value).
Yesterday’s about Dobot was inspired by a marketing email I received, and today’s no different. At the risk of sending the wrong message to marketers I’m going to run with it. If giveaways aren’t your thing, please check back tomorrow for a real personal finance article. If you love to win free stuff, then you might want to stick around.
Show Me the Stuff!
Brentwood Home is giving away 4 pillows. That’s a snore, right? (Yes, pun intended.) They aren’t ordinary pillows. They are super-healthy, organic-cover, pesticide-free pillows. (Who knew that pesticides in pillows was a thing?)
More specifically, you get 2 Latex/Kapok Pillows and 2 Molded Latex Pillows. (I presume that if you have a latex allergy this isn’t for you.)
The kapok pillows “are filled with all-natural latex ribbons that have a responsive feel that provides uplifting support, combined with silky-smooth kapok. They’ll be the perfect fit for people who switch between multiple sleeping positions, as they easily mold to your neck and head.”
The molded pillows are “are bouncy, resilient, and molded to perfectly contour your head and neck.”
And presumably they’ll make you this happy:
If you are looking for more details here is the official page on the specific wellness bundle. It includes a product picture that may be more practical, but less fun, than the one I chose.
I’ve been doing a lot of joking here, but allow me to a little series for a minute. I recently watched Morgan Spurlock’s Inside Man on Toxins and couches were highlighted as one of the more “dangerous” items. I put “dangerous” in quotes, because the conclusion seemed to be that the danger, if any, is unknown.
Many mattress and bedding companies use chemical fire retardants, phthalates, and heavy metals when manufacturing and processing their
products and Brentwood Home products avoid them. Phthalates was one of the biggest concerns brought up in the Morgan Spurlock show. If you are spending 1/3rd of your life in your bedding it might be best to avoid these chemicals.
How Do I Win?
You have to be lucky. Also, you have to leave a comment on this post by 11:59PM Eastern Time on
Saturday, 10/22/2016. The agency asked if I could run it until the 31st, and I see no reason why not… so October 31st it is. Since new commenters have their comments moderated your comment might not show up on the website right away. I am going to pick a commenter at random using a random number generator to win. I reserve the right to give interesting comments that I find more interesting extra entries. The idea with that is to (hopefully) create a comment section a little better than people saying, “Me!” while still making it easy enough for lazy people like myself to enter.
Finally, you must include your real email address, because otherwise I can’t contact you to tell you how to claim the prize. As always, I never give or sell email addresses.
I will pass the winner’s information to the marketing agency who are in charge of sending out the prizes.
For hosting this giveaway, Brentwood and/or their marketing agency is giving me this holistic wellness bundle. It includes a yoga pillow, a scented candle, and one of those latex/kapok pillows. They value the bundle at $139.
Regular readers know that the absolute worst way to get my attention is offering holistic/yoga stuff. However, I also like free stuff and I’ve been looking into getting into meditation. Maybe this is just the kick-start I need.
