Kitchen Kop October 2012 Giveaway – Win a $75 gift card!

The Kitchen Kop giveaways worth $30-$40 were boring.  So now I’m ramping things up and giving away $75 Amazon gift cards instead and making it easier, too.


1. Sign up for the Kitchen Kop newsletter in the orange box below (you’ll have to scroll down past this post to find it) to be eligible to win this or any future Kitchen Kop giveaways. If you’re already signed up that counts. (This newsletter will contain weekly blog updates.)

Don’t forget to click on the ‘confirm’ link when it comes to your inbox or else you won’t be signed up.  You can unsubscribe at any time. Just know that you must be subscribed in order to be eligible to win this and any future prizes.

And lastly… 

2.  Click over to, look around, and tell me in the comments what you’ll buy if you win.

I’ll choose a winner via and announce it here on the blog.  Be sure to sign up for blog post updates via RSS or via email so you’ll know right away if you win, because you’ll only have 48 hours to contact us and claim your prize. (Blog post updates will sign you up for *almost* daily updates.)

Good luck!

Note:  Please play nice and follow directions.  When I choose the winner, if you didn’t follow the two directions above, I’ll have to pick a new one.

No purchase necessary. The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning. Only open to those 18 or older. Only one comment per entry.  One winner will be chosen based on the number of entries and announced here on the blog. Winner’s name will be published in the post announcing the winner (email address will not be published), and they will have 48 hours to contact me. If I find an entry to be invalid (winner did not do what they said they did), then I will pick a new winner. By the way, this is technically called a “sweepstakes” not a “giveaway” because the winner is chosen at random based on entries. Note: Affiliate links are included above.

    At this point I have too much in the way of books (there I said it!) and not enough time to read them, so I imagine I’d pick up something bellydance related. Either music or an instructional DVD. That is something I could use.

  2. jess says

    I would get Eat Like a Dinosaur finally and Diane Sanfilippo’s new book Practical Paleo. And a Le Creuset butter crock in cobalt. I love Le Crueset and my dream is to save up for the Dutch Oven or French Oven. I could use that for so many things!

    If I won, I would buy a Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Oven. When one of my old roommate’s had one, I used it all the time. Chicken and roasts come out so good, plus it’s just plain fun to sit and watch the meat spin :-)

    Just discovered how rewarding is making, kneading and baking my own bread from wild yeast ( with organic flour) so probably I would buy a banneton and other bread making related items.Already a subscriber.

  22. says

    If I were to win… We just ran out of FCLO w/ BO… so that would be first priority. Otherwise, food, supplements, and school books.

    If I received an Amazon gift card I would purchase the GAPS book by Dr. Campbell-McBride and Wheat Belly, by Dr. David. I am also looking for baking pans that aren’t aluminum, but haven’t settled on a good brand yet. Thanks!

  25. Naomi says

    I didn’t see where you mentioned that we should make separate comments, but just in case, here is my separate comment: again, I already subscribe, and again, I would apply the $75 to books or something that I’m already buying on a regular basis.

    I’ve got my eye on a set of KitchenAid stainless steel cookware (think it’s KitchenAid brand) that I found last month listed at just under $150 sale price.

  59. mj says

  62. Gilla says

    I already subscribe :) I have a few books and games on my wishlist for our homeschool that I would love to be able to buy!

  63. Kaitlynn says

    I subscribed to the newsletter. I would probably buy books or a new food processor, because ours isn’t very powerful.

  64. Teresa B says

    Already a subscriber.
    Still want to get some new water kefir grains, accessories for my mixer, and fermenting equipment.

    I am a scriber. I have been saving for a kitchen aid stand mixer. Hopefully there will be a incredible sale on Black Friday and I can finally get it!

  66. Wendi Wilkins says

    I’m already sign-up for your newsletter and I’d start working through my book wish list with my $75 Gift Card win!

  67. says

    Well I’m ready to win! :-) I’m raising my granddaughter and what I would buy if I won is Christmas gifts for her…more specifically…a couple of Monster High dolls that are tough to find in this teeny tiny town we live in. :-) Just bought her a Monster High logo dress at Wal-Mart tonight. She saw it and ooo’d. Then she ahhh’d. Wasn’t really in the budget but a little girl needs a new dress now and then!

  68. June says

    I recently broke my crockpot crock and need to replace my crockpot. The crock was no match for our tile! I would also like to purchase a pressure canner

  69. Debby says

    If I won, I’d get some (hair) products on Amazon I can’t get in any stores around me because they’re only sold online. Since I’m young (13) and almost 14, this would also be a great additional present though there’s only a slight chance I’ll win; I tend to never win giveaways unless it’s for things I care the least about- so far I’ve won a book and a pair of slippers that didn’t even fit me! :p Better than nothing though because I entered giveaways on that website every single day multiple times for like 2 years. Didn’t mean to give you my whole life store haha. :p

    Anyways, I currently don’t have a job (though I’m trying to get a Babysitting one) so I can’t buy myself an Amazon gift card from a store, so I would be truly grateful to receive this as a gift! Especially since my birthday present (which was ordered online from a far away place) may not arrive on time for my birthday. Well, I’m never going to say something is impossible! :) Thanks for this giveaway contest! <3

  70. Rachel J. says

    I really need a new fluoride Berkey filter, lol. But I would probably also treat myself to a few Fido jars and/or swing top bottles for my new kombucha obsession and probably a cookbook or two. I’ve been eyeing The Wild Table cookbook and would love to splurge on that as well.

  71. Stacy says

    I would use it to go towards a Berkey Water filter for my Sister. They just started adding Fluoride to her water and she can’t afford a filter :(

  72. Hallie says

    I have a whole list of kitchen items in my Amazon Wishlist: a serrated bread knife, ramekins, a donut pan, a cast iron skillet…So many ways I could use a $75 gift card!

  73. Ruthi says

    Outside of reading and teaching, my interests focus on sewing and cooking, so I have been looking at the quilting books and fabric on Amazon to fill that interest. Not only that, but would love to get some things to make my sewing space much more user-friendly.

  74. teri f says

    I would get my 75 yr old mother the little things that make her day …..the dried fruit tray….some exotic teas and cookies…some survival type stuff…she’s made it this far raising 8 kids….and is now struggling…so I try and send her surprises in the mail….just to make her day…hope to win….thanks for the giveaway!

  75. Amy says

    I already subscribe via e-mail. If I win I will purchase some of the “little” things my kids have been adding to our Amazon wishlist for Christmas stocking stuffers.

  76. teri f says

    still adding to moms amazon list for her last few years….its amazing as to the energy this woman has….and how she loves to shop online now!!

  77. Gina says

    I have a few health issues that require pretty expensive supplements every month… As it turns out, amazon has the best price for them, so a $75 gift card would come in really handy. :)

  78. Robyn says

    Already a subscriber. :)
    I need books – real food books for myself and school/textbooks for my daughter. I would also like to get my special needs child some “fine motor encouraging” kitchen toys. Thanks as always for a great giveaway!

  79. Jennifer says

    I want so many things from a meat grinder, fido jars, stoneware, cast iron bakeware, and much much more. However, I will most likely spend it on Christmas gifts.
