Happy Holidays and Giveaway Winners!

Before we get started with the giveaway winners, I’d like to take a moment and wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.  As most of you are celebrating over the next few days, our family will be doing the same.  Having said that, I’m going to take a few days off and resume posting on Wednesday.

Giveaway Winners

In early December, we celebrated the 4th anniversary of Million Dollar Journey by giving away a bunch of prizes.  The grand prize was the newest version of the iPod Touch (32gb) that was generously sponsored by RedFlagDeals.  In addition to that prize, we added 8 x $25 Amazon gift certificates to increase the chances of winning something.  The turnout was impressive with over 600 comment entries and a large number of newsletter subscribers.  All entries were put into an electronic hat (spreadsheet), and drawn with an online random number generator.

The winners are…  (drum roll please!)

Grand Prize: Jeff G

  1. Kevin Ho

  4. Brad (comment 196)
  5. Danny Canuck (comment 134)
