Apparently, there are a lot of us mamas who are way overdue for a date night or a much-deserved girls’ night out because our last “Ask the Mamas” giveaway was very popular! The comments (click here to read them) and the e-mails came flyin’ in. (Congrats to Amy McCrary, the mother of five boys, who won the first giveaway. Amy literally can’t remember the last date night she had, so she’s on Cloud 9!)
So, back by popular demand, we’re doing an encore giveaway for a gift card for two movie tickets to any Malco theater and dinner at any Chili’s location! All you have to do to throw your name in the hat is answer the question of the day (see below).
As before, the “Ask the Mamas” feature is sponsored by Core4 Research, a Northwest Arkansas company that conducts focus groups on lots of household brand names we’re all familiar with. (By the way, they PAY local moms to give their opinions in a focus group. Score! Click here to find out more about being a participant in one of their 2-hour focus groups.)
Here’s the question of the day: Name one or two products (bought from anywhere) that make your “gotta have it” list. (Gripe water for your colicky baby? The perfect shade of lipstick? The iPhone app that keeps your life organized? The Oreo cookies that keep you sane?) Feel free to tell us what you love about your faves because other moms will want to know!
How to enter: Just click on the big orange “comment” button at the bottom of this post and answer the question of the day. You’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win the movie tickets and dinner on the town. The giveaway is random, so anyone can win. You can also e-mail us your comment by sending it to giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com.
Remember, to increase your odds of winning, send this giveaway info to your friends and we’ll throw your name in the hat for each one you tell. Just CC the mamas at giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com when you send that e-mail so we’ll know about it.
Info about paid focus groups: During a focus group, you get to talk with other grown-ups (woo-hoo!), share your opinions, have snacks, go to the bathroom without your toddler, AND GET PAID for your time. (Focus groups last about two hours.)
To be notified about upcoming focus group opportunities via e-mail, CLICK HERE to answer a few questions for the people at Core4. The questions ask for things like contact info, year of birth, how many kids you have, where you shop, etc., but don’t let the questions scare you off. The reason they ask the questions is because some companies request a certain type of shopper for their focus groups. (For example, Company XYZ might want mothers with two or more kids who shop at Wal-Mart and Target, etc.) After you answer the survey questions, Core 4 will send you notices via e-mail to let you know about focus group opportunities. (No phone calls, no pressure.) If you have friends who are looking for flexible ways to make extra money, be sure to let them know about this.
Rest assured this company is legit and will NOT try to sell you anything. They’re only interested in your opinions on products.
Core4 is looking right now for moms around Northwest Arkansas to take part in upcoming focus groups. Click here to take the survey and be considered for the next focus group! You’ll go to their office, give your opinions and leave $50 richer. By our calculations, that’s enough money for about seven trips to Chick-fil-A, a new cute top at Target or some birthday gift money for your kids or sweetie. Woo-hoo! Extra money rocks.
Good luck in the drawing!
