Win Groupon Vouchers

Hey Skint pals,

Well, it’s been quite a week. Since I last posted I’ve been on holiday (lovely) and been broken into (beyond horrible). Anyway, more about that in the next post, no point getting all gloomy about it now. Instead, I’m going for something that’ll cheer me up tonight: announcing your chance to win Groupon vouchers with Skint’s first giveaway.  

Yep, this is your chance to win Groupon vouchers – £40 of them actually – to spend on whatever floats your boat. No restrictions; the choice is yours, whether you plump for trapeze lessons, a set of garden fairy lights or just night on the town. And, in the usual fashion, all you need to do is answer one simple question. Though it’s not quite as simple as those questions you get on morning telly.  I’ve been watching more than my share of morning telly lately, baby Skint and I, and find the competitions more hilarious than the organisers surely intend. Here’s how they usually go: ‘Complete the well-known phrase: penny-wise, pound  . . .

win Groupon vouchers

Sure, you could settle for a Groupon pizza deal. Or you take a walk on the wild side instead . . .

So, no, sorry pals, it’s not quite that easy. But then, your chances of winning the Groupon vouchers are way higher. And it doesn’t cost £1.50 from BT landlines to enter. In fact, in true Skint style, it doesn’t cost a bean. All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me what you’d most like to spend the £40 of vouchers on should you win. And because I’m trying to get all high-falutin’ by spreading the word about Skint you get extra entries if you help with that. So, if you choose to tweet this competition or like  Skint on facebook etc you gain extra entries. Crafty, eh? By my standards anyway. Which are, admittedly, pretty low.

So, simply let me know how you’d like to spend the vouchers chums and they could  soon be yours. The competition ends next Friday, September 7. Looking forward to reading your entries. Do feel free to make them as wild as you like.  I don’t get out so much these days, you see – got to get my kicks somehow.

T&Cs – Mother and father Skint, brother and baby Skint may not enter. In fact, anyone whose surname is Skint has both my condolences and my instructions not to enter. Sorry, them’s the breaks.  

UK Skint readers only for this one, folks.
