New Year, New Giveaways

Written By Scott Joseph On January 4, 2011

Note: next drawing is Friday, Feb. 25, for $50 gift certificate to Hilton Orlando, home of Spencer’s Steakhouse.

It’s a New Year and time for new giveaways. I’ve got dozens of certificates for restaurants, cooking classes and wine. And I’m anxious to give them away. So I’m going to be holding weekly drawings, maybe even more frequently.

This week’s prize: a $50 gift certificate to the fabulous Park Plaza Gardens on Winter Park’s Park Avenue. Drawing will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. Winners must respond by 9 a.m. Monday or the certificate will be assigned to a new drawing. (That’s sort of the new age equivalent of “must be present to win,” I guess.)

The rules are the same as last year: all you have to do to be eligible to win is sign up for my occasional newsletter. That’s it. Once you’ve signed up, you’re registered for all future drawings. As an added bonus, the newsletter recipients are the first to know about SJO Deals. Last month the SJO Deal for a gift certificate to K Restaurant sold out before I could make a public announcement. They were all snatched up by people who got the newsletter announcing the deal. (By the way, I’ve got some incredible Deals coming up, so be watching your inbox. Here’s a hint: the announcements come usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays in the morning.)

To sign up, just fill in the info in the box below. It’s all safe and secure, and since it can’t be said often enough: I do not spam; I do not sell or even lend your address to any other entity (they can’t even ask to take a peek at my list); and your inbox will never be loaded with e-mails from me. Promise. (By the way, winners are notified by the e-mail address, so make sure it’s a valid address and that your spam filter doesn’t chuck e-mails from scottjosephorlando.com.)

If you’re already signed up, please consider telling a friend about the giveaways. You can click on the e-mail icon at the top of this article to send it to someone.
