*GIVEAWAY CLOSED!* A heartfelt THANK YOU from me to you. Enter to win a $200 Amazon gift card


This is a big ole heartfelt THANK YOU. 

Thank you for reading my blog.

Thank you for leaving encouraging, helpful and kind comments.

Thank you for sharing my articles, deals and recipes.

Thank you for your patience when I make mistakes, have egregious typos, or don’t post as often as you’d like.

Thank you for recommending my site to your friends and family.

Thank you for following me on FacebookPinterest or Twitter.

Thank you, thank you for making Queen Bee the vibrant community that it is.

I’ve said it before – but if it wasn’t for all of you, I’d still be blogging with an audience of one. I wouldn’t be able to wake up every day and do what I love.

I know frugal blogs are a dime a dozen. I know your time is valuable and your social media and your world is FULL of blogs, people and companies wanting your attention. I get it.

Bottom line – I don’t take any of you for granted. I count you all as friends. Sweet friends that make this “job” seem like a joyful hobby that I often sit back and think, “How did I get so lucky?” You bless me beyond words!

Thank you.


Since inviting you all over for quinoa chicken chili isn’t really an option (geez, you all love that recipe). . . I’m giving away a $200 Amazon gift card as my way of saying THANK YOU and to celebrate reaching 40,000 Facebook likes.

And you know it’s not really the 40K number that brings me the greatest joy – I’m a big believer of quality over quantity. What makes me most proud of that accomplishment is looking at the Queen Bee Facebook comments, the tips, the CONVERSATION that is happening on that page. It’s genuine. It’s kind. It’s positive. And it’s a welcoming spot for anyone who wants to save money, ask questions, and be part of an uplifting circle of frugal friends.

I am giving away ONE $200 Amazon gift card to ONE person. Each person has FOUR possible entries. If you enter more than that or you try to cheat, you’ll totally be disqualified.  EACH entry requires a separate comment – so if you are aiming for FOUR entries, you will leave four separate comments.

These are your FOUR possible entries per person:

Entry #1 – REQUIRED ENTRY – Please leave a comment on this postAny comment – but I’d love to know what your favorite kinds of deals or posts are here at Queen Bee. We’ve changed things up this year and I’d love to know what you’re liking or what you’d like to see more of!

(*My comment box is waaaay at the bottom of this post. I’m working to try and get it moved to the top – but until then, thanks for scrolling to the bottom and entering. Oye. I’ll get it fixed!)

Entry #2 – For a second entry, share this giveaway with someone – either by Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest (repin here) email, word-of-mouth, text message, homing pigeon, sky writer – whatever way you want, just share the love. Tell me you shared it in a separate comment as your second entry. 

Entry #3 – For a third entry, head over and like Queen Bee Coupons on Facebook. If you already like Queen Bee on Facebook – awesome, just share this giveaway on your Facebook wall. Leave a comment telling me you either a.) liked Queen Bee Coupons on Facebook or b.) You shared the giveaway on Facebook

Entry #4 – Sign up for the Queen Bee Coupons email. Not only will you automatically be entered into our bi-monthly giveaway for $100 (next one is February 28), but you’ll get all the deals delivered to your box in one tidy email everyday around 2 p.m. No spam. Just a wrap-up of my daily deals. If you already subscribe, awesome – leave a comment letting me know you subscribe!

I will pick a lucky winner on March 3 at 9 p.m. PST. Please pay special attention to the email you use when you enter – that’s how I’ll contact the winner. I will post the winner on the blog that night or the following morning.

Once again – thank you my friends. You bless me beyond words.  

This giveaway is not sponsored or endorsed by Amazon – it’s just me purchasing an Amazon gift card for one of you!



THANK YOU to everyone who entered my giveaway for a $200 Amazon gift card. I wish I could give you all a gift card, but that’s just not in the cards.   The lucky winner of the $200 Amazon gift card is. . .(drumroll. . . )
