REI Gift Card Giveaway!

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sun Apr 04, 2010 7:15 pm

This year, I've decided that I'm going give $1,000 of my dividend back to the 14ers community.

Starting next month, I'm going to start giving away $100 REI Gift Cards while I'm out hiking on 14ers. Throughout the summer I'll give out all 10 and post in this thread each time I pass one out to a functioning climber.

No strings attached, I just like giving stuff away!

To up the odds for people that use the site, I've decided to give some of the $100 gift cards away by randomly tossing them in 14ers.com store orders (over $10 net) in the next couple of months. So, if you place an order in the store, you might be surprised when you open the box! If you get one, I encourage you to post in this thread.

Blatent promotion of the store, but at least it means more of the cards will go to people that actually use the site.

Alive and in the mountains. :lol: ...not sure why I originally wrote that. :?:

Oh, and don't forget that now I'll also be giving a few out via the store.

Is it too early for "sainthood"?
I think my wife and I need new shirts from the store.

thanks

Christmas in June baby!!!! \:D/ \:D/
Ok, I know it's technically still May, but when I get my package it will be June. As Bill just mentioned, I was the lucky one to get the first of his REI gift Cards. I ordered a new t-shirt cuz mine old one was getting a bit raggedy (awesome sale prices by the way!), lo and behold - REI here I come!
As I am sure most, if not all, of us can agree this is an amazing site that not only has seemingly endless information about our wonderful state's 14ers, but is a fantasic community as well. The effort put forth by Bill to maintain this site which educates and entertains many of us on a daily basis is simply awesome. :bow:
As Bill stated earlier, he has tons of goods stacking up. Let's help this man out and take some of it off his hands. If you haven't already, you have to check out the sale prices - :YY - they rock! http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/store.php
I look forward to meeting more fellow 14ers.com family on the trails this summer. I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting Bill. Maybe this will be the season I finally get to thank him in person!
Everyone be safe, smart, and stay on your own path to your goals whether it's a single summit or all 54 (58 :roll: )!

- THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING BILL!!!

Cool deal! Are you giving them away to random people or should they be wearing a 14ers.com shirt when hiking?

Hmmm... I don't know, I was just thinking that I might be wearing a jacket when hiking! Maybe a hat would do?

Another option would be 14ers.com Amazing Race! One card placed somewhere on Longs Peak, one on Mt. Elbert, etc... Your goal to find Bill and battle others in a series of mini games/races both technical and knowledge-based. The winner will then take the glory and the gift card... Or not! :lol:

Back from a long camping trip in Oregon...

I gave out the 2nd $100 REI card today to another 14ers.com visitor. Starting next week I'll be giving some away while hiking on the peaks...
