Corona Giveaway

So, I finally got laid off during Corona a bit ago. Since I’m feeling a bit down about that, I think a giveaway would cheer me up.

The terms are as follows:

  • One entry per person
  • Winner determined by I will use it to randomly select a number between the first and last eligible replies (inclusive), and if the result is not an eligible reply then I’ll re-roll.
  • Accounts must exist for reasons other than group buys and giveaways
  • Accounts must have existed before July 1st, 2020
  • The giveaway ends when I get a new job
  • I reserve the right to suspend, cancel, extend, or otherwise modify this giveaway and/or its rules in any way at any time. I also reserve the right to review entry eligibility on a case-by-case basis if I want (or not if I don’t want).
  • To enter, post… just about anything.
  • US only due to shipping costs. If you’d like to enter from outside the US, you would have to pay the difference in shipping vs. a small USPS Priority Flat Rate box ($7.65).

Prize is a Trustfire Mini 08. It’s in like-new condition, and includes the keychain and battery it came with originally. I’ve owned it for several months, but it has never been carried. It has been turned on a few times and charged with the built-in charger, so I can confirm everything works. I don’t know if I have the box, or spare O-rings, or whatever. I’ll throw in a micro-USB cable if I remember.

Not in on account of shipping costs (don’t get me started on that Sick )

What a nice silver lining you present!

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Thanks for the reminder. Unless the new job is really good, I’m limiting it to the US due to shipping concerns, with the exception that you could pay the shipping difference if you really wanted.

OP, Thanks for the GAW!  Good Luck on the jobs front.

Smile! It makes others wonder what you've been up to.

Oh no, sorry to hear you got laid off! I hope you find a better job than the last and get the unemployment help. My son got a big check for retroactive benefits after he got laid off. I’ll chime in for the giveaway. Remember what they say about a cheerful giver!
