Tackle To Win???

by Janice

If you aren’t a tackler yet, you might want to jump in…

Are you a regular tackler at our weekly carnival, Tackle It Tuesday? Or have you seen it and thought, “That sounds like a good idea. My house could use it. Maybe one day…”

Well, whether you have never tackled before, or you faithfully post every week, you aren’t going to want to miss our FIRST THEME TACKLE complete with serious CASH prizes!!!

What is this Theme Tackle and How Will it Work?

The theme is Kitchen and Bathroom Tackles, with a CLR twist!

CLR contacted us to see if we would like to have some contest fun with Tackle It Tuesday and CLR Bathroom and Kitchen cleaner. We thought that sounded cool and definitely topical, so here is what we worked out:

  • CLR will provide ALL blogger participants who sign up for the CLR Tackle with one free full size bottle of CLR Bathroom and Kitchen cleaner, shipped directly, and at no cost, to the blogger participant.
  • Then all the blogger participants who want to post their CLR tackle and/or their opinion of CLR will link up in the CLR Tackle It Tuesday Mr. Linky on October 21st to be entered to win one of the three Prize Packs. (There will be a separate Mr. Linky for the October 21st Tackle It Tuesday for tacklers who want to tackle but do not want to participate in the CLR contest tackle.)

Yes, I said CASH prizes…

5 Minutes for Mom will choose THREE winners who will each receive a Prize Pack of CLR cleaning products and ONE HUNDRED dollars so they can treat themselves to a tackle BREAK and hire a maid service to come and tackle their housecleaning for them.

(The money will be in the form of a cash card and of course winners can choose to spend it however they wish. But a tackle break sounds good to me!) ;)

How Do I Sign Up and When Do I Need to Post?

All bloggers are invited to join in and post a CLR Tackle, whether they are new to Tackle It Tuesday or not.

To receive the free full sized bottle of CLR Bathroom and Kitchen cleaner, blogger participants need to write us at info (at) 5minutesformom (dot) com with CLR TACKLE in the subject line with their shipping addresses and shipping phone number.

(The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada, but unfortunately APO address are not permitted due to time constraints.) Email addresses and shipping info will be used only for the purposes of this contest and will not be used to send any promotional material, spam, etc.

We must receive your email by October 2 in order to get you on the product delivery list.

Product will be delivered via FedEx between October 8th and 10th.

Bloggers then have time to tackle and prepare their post to publish on their blogs for the October 21st Tackle It Tuesday. Participating bloggers then just need to come to 5 Minutes for Mom.com and add the permalink to THEIR CLR tackle in the CLR Tackle Mr. Linky.

All bloggers who posts their opinions (and have included the permalink in the CLR Tackle It Tuesday Mr. Linky by the Wednesday, October 22 at 11:59pm Eastern) will be entered to win one of the three Prize Packs, which each include $100.00, from CLR.

We will announce the winners October 23rd, 2008.

What if I Don’t Like the Product?

No worries!

We want you to give your honest opinion and to have fun with the tackle and contest. If you like it great! If not, feel free to share.

Participation in the CLR Tackle in no way guarantees a positive editorial endorsement of CLR. Jelmar, Inc is interested in honest product reviews and word of mouth around CLR Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaner.
