Borlok Virtual Assistants believes that all work and no play makes life way too boring. Don’t you agree?

Deadline: Friday, August 20, 2010

When do your kids go back to school? It used to be that school started like clockwork  the first Monday after Labor Day. Now this was many, many years ago. Now with schools having their own start dates, virtual assistants can be faced with staggering unwanted expenses of buying new shoes and clothes when they have school-age children — and that is right around the corner!

Fortunately, my partner and I have only four-legged feline and canine children, so we are not faced with delving out cash (sometimes lots of it) for designer jeans, or the best shoes, etc.  For you virtual assistants that are out there that need some help with buying school clothes, I was presented with a survey contest where the grand prize is a $250 shopping spree.

Here’s the deal. Complete a survey at Two-Sense by Shop.com; oh, don’t worry. It’s VERY short. Once you do that and read the Terms and Conditions, you’ll be eligible for a chance to win a $250 shopping spree at Shop.com.

Here’s a summary of some of the rules:

  • You must be 18 or older
  • Open to residents of the US and the District of Columbia
  • Prize per person/email/household/or address is limited to 1 Prize

Special recognition goes to the individual who identified herself as Shopping Queen for bringing this to the attention of BVA1Sweeps.

Deadline:  July 31, 2010

If you are a writer, you’re always looking for extra cash, right? Well, here is a chance for you to enter the Scinti Story Contest for your chance to pick up between $25-$100 in prize money.

The eligibility requirements are not stringent. You must be a fan of Scinti on Facebook, your submissions must all be done through email, and you can even submit stories that you might have written and published on your blog.

As always, 1Sweeps recommends that you pay attention to the rules. You can find them here: Rules.

Happy Writing!

Deadline:  November 30, 2009
