Here at The Recessionista the staff (me, myself and I) are violently opposed to the mere suggestion of Scroogenomics. Like Dicken’s transformed Ebenezer Scrooge, The Recessionista “will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ” To prove our commitment to the spirit of giving and the holidays, The Recessionista, in cooperation with American Express, has a special holiday surprise. We are giving away 10 American Express gift cards in the amount of $50.00 each. This is very generous on the part of American Express. Thank you American Express!
As all good recessionistas and frugalistas know, the possibilities for giving and spending with an American Express gift card are virtually limitless. These gift cards are good for dining out, theatre, concerts, events and shopping. Unlike some other universal gift cards, American Express gift cards have no fees after purchase, so they are 100% gift, 0% fee for the recipient. That means you get $50.00 on the card, not $47.50 after the fee. It’s a wonderful life when you have an American Express gift card in your pocket or handbag. Please note, these cards are only good in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
So, what do you need to do to win one of these cards? Write me a little comment by Sunday, Dec. 20th at midnight PST/3 am EST and tell me what you would do with the prize of a $50.00 gift card. A few thoughts:
- Would you run out to the mall?
- Buy a Zhu Zhu Pet?
- Get the latest iPod or other gadget?
- Enjoy a wonderful dinner.
- Run screaming from your home on Christmas morning trying to buy the biggest Christmas goose ever.

Remember, there will be 10 lucky winners, so don’t be shy with the comments. Your efforts may just be rewarded. I’ve heard from many of you throughout the year about tough times you are having and challenges that you are facing. I’m so happy that we have some wonderful companies offering nice giveaways for all of you this week. Please take advantage of them. Eschew that lump of coal!
