No Friendly's Gift Card - Sorry to my readers!

I just wanted to mention that I haven't received the gift card for the Friendly's Gift Card giveaway - so I apologize to the winner, Patty and everyone else who took time to enter the contest.  I was approached with the giveaway November 18th.  Launched it the 23rd and announced the winner on the 28th.  I contacted them about not getting it on 12/7 and was told it would be mailed out the next day (December 8th).  Still nothing.  I just don't have the time or energy to keep pushing the issue.  So here I am, just complaining on my blog.

Just wanted to mention that my other giveaways were a success (P&G, Nature's Path and the BMC Halloween Town tickets).  For that, I thank those companies for following through.  Giveaways are kind of time consuming in their own way - for both myself and the people who comment to enter.  So my deepest apologies.  I'm not really a big "giveaway" blogger as this is just a random blog that I do for fun - but at least now I know that I'll be more cautious in the future.  Thought Friendly's would have pulled through.  My mistake.  Sorry again Patty and whoever may be reading this!

I'm sorry! Giveaways are time-consuming, and I would be really frustrated if one fell through like this. I would have trusted Friendly's to follow through also.

contact them thru facebook or twitter...the person on there seems to be pretty attentive to these things...although now that you mention it, I won a free cone or something and never received it!
