Need a Reno-Cation? – Contest Closed

We Have a Winner!  The Winner is  Oceanside! Congratulations!

True Random Number Generator Min: Max: Result: 105

I know I sure need one.  A reno-cation, if you do not know what that is, is a renovation to your home, as well as a vacation so you can relax when it is all over.  That is definitely what I could use.  My home needs to have a few rooms painted like the living room and bathroom, plus I need to learn how to organize things better with shelving or storage units etc..  Maybe some nice pictures or artwork for my walls.  There are endless possibilities.  Then after all that hard work, I can dream of flying out to Hawaii or some other tropical paradise so that I could relax and have fun.  Wouldn’t it be nice?

Now if it sounds like you need a reno-cation, then Royale has the promotion for you.  They are giving away $25,000 worth of prizes.  Here are some details for the grand prize they are giving away: 

- The Grand prize includes $13,000 to spend on a home renovation in any way the winner chooses AND an 11-day, $7,000 Royal Caribbean cruise for two on the “Jewel of the Seas.”
- An additional $5,000 in prizes will be given away to secondary winners in the form of 15 weekly prize packs from the Royale Luxury Bath Collection that include a personal heated towel rack, new luxurious towels, and premium Royale robes.

If you play the game on their website, you can enter two times each time instead of just one each time you enter.  So more chances to win. 

Sounds nice doesn’t it?  But that’s not all.  In addition to entering that contest, Mom Central Canada (www.momcentral.com) has kindly agreed to let me host a blog campaign and contest for them.  I will be giving away a $50.00 Cara restaurant gift card, accepted at Swiss Chalet, Montana’s, Milestones, Kelsey’s, and  Harvey’s, as well as a $50.00 Home Hardware gift card.  So that indeed is a nice prize as well ($100 value).  The contest will run from March 15, 2010 to April 27, 2010.  Open to Canadian entries only.  Please leave a comment to enter the contest and tell me “What is your ultimate reno-cation”?

For extra entries:

1.  Please follow me @freeshopper on twitter and leave a separate comment for that. 

2.  Re-tweet the contest for me.

3.  Follow my blog and/or subscribe to my blog and leave me a separate comment.

    I think I'd redo my bathrooms... I hate them! The people who lived here before me did such a terrible job. I think they closed their eyes, spun around, and threw grout and tiles randomly!

    As to where I'd go, my favourite place on earth is Niagara Falls. My very first "grown-up" vacation, planed by myself, was to Niagara, so it holds a special place in my heart.

    Thank you!
