*Live Giveaway* Macy's Great American Elf Adventure *Closed*

Ok, We have a winner via Random Draw . . .

And Comment #38 belongs to :


Congrats! I am emailing you now.


Elf
More than 10,000 of Macy’s Parade’s ever-rambunctious elves have magically taken residence at Macy’s stores nationwide and at locations in select cities. Fans who find a Macy’s hidden elf, give it a makeover and submit their design to Macy’s Elf Adventure Facebook application could see their elf design transformed into a flying wonder and watch it soar in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! In addition, the winner and three guests will receive a trip to New York City to see the Parade live.

How exciting would it be to see YOUR elf in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade?

It could happen!

To find an elf, simply visit the Macy's facebook page and search for clues. You can also find clues via Twitter by following @macysevents or searching the hashtag #macyself.

Each day (ending August 24th) Macy's will post a password and clue. All you have to do is go hunt for the elf! Just be sure to tell your sales associate the password when you find your elf.

The daily clue and password can also be received by texting* ELF to MACYS (62297)
After the hunt is over, fans are asked to let their imagination take flight and design what could be the newest member of the Parade elf family. Once the masterpiece is complete, the artist should submit a detailed front and back photo of their creation. To enter the design, participants will need to “Like” Macy’s on Facebook and then proceed to download the “Elf” application. Entries must include the identification serial number found on the packaging containing the elf (all real Macy’s elves will have one) and upload their photo/complete application by Wednesday, August 24 at 11:59:59 PM ET.

For more information, Please visit Macy's facebook page or see the full press release here.


*Giveaway*

This is a special LIVE 24 hour giveaway. One lucky winner will win the following prize pack :

One Macy's Great American Elf to design yourself and a $75 Macy's gift card

Fun Fun!

All you have to do is comment below. Tell me WHO will be decorating this elf?

Once you have completed your first mandatory comment, you are free to leave as many comments as you would like. HOWEVER, you CAN NOT comment RIGHT AFTER YOUR OWN COMMENT. YOU MUST WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO POST FIRST.


Remember: If you do not want to enter this giveaway, You can also visit and LIKE Macy's facebook page to decorate an elf.

This giveaway will remain up for 24 hours OR until we reach comment number 501.

peg42 on August 17, 2011 at 7:45 PM said...

Thanks so much.

my little cousin solomon! :)

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:10 PM said...

It's a nice summer evening here in Oregon. Perfect night for enterting giveaways! :)

Henrietta on August 17, 2011 at 9:31 PM said...

I hear peepers outside. I just love summer nights!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:33 PM said...

Aww that's so cute Henrietta! My aunt got baby chicks last year and they were soooo cute.

Juleemm on August 17, 2011 at 9:36 PM said...

I would decorate the elf.

Henrietta on August 17, 2011 at 9:37 PM said...

Haha Beeb! I meant peepers... as in frogs and crickets, we just call them peepers, maybe we're weird. Although if I listen, I'm sure I could hear my feathered "peepers " out there too!

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:38 PM said...

I'm leaving on family vacation to Washington tomorrow. I cannot wait for the gorgeous cooler weather and cloudy skies!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:39 PM said...

LOL!! No, that totally makes sense! We always call chickens peepers and I know you have lots of them so I immediately pictured little baby chicken cheeping away! LOL!

Tammy on August 17, 2011 at 9:40 PM said...

peep peep :)

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:40 PM said...

Hey Rachel, have fun in Washington! (I live in Oregon right by the Washington border) :)

mail4rosey on August 17, 2011 at 9:42 PM said...

My son will decorate the elf.

msurosey@yahoo.com

KrystynaLondon on August 17, 2011 at 9:42 PM said...

My 7 year old cousin would love to decorate it! :)

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:43 PM said...

Yay, glad more people are joining the fun!

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:43 PM said...

Beeb - we're actually flying into Seattle, staying the night in Redmond, then driving down to the Oregon coast on Friday to spend the weekend with family. I'll probably drive by you :)

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:45 PM said...

Rachel, that's awesome! I can vouch firsthand that the weather here had been awesome - sunny but cool. I'm in Seaside so I bet you will be coming this way!

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:46 PM said...

I simply cannot wait - it's been hot this summer (like every summer!) I'm looking forward to wearing pants and not sweating to death.

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:48 PM said...

I don't know how you do it! My FH is from Arizona and our first trip there was in August - I nearly melted!

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:49 PM said...

The winters make it worth it, trust me. While everyone is freezing and hiding inside, we're out playing at the park, the zoo, etc. It's 4 months of torture for 8 months of beautiful weather.

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:51 PM said...

You know, it's funny, the second time we went was in January, and our hosts said: "This is why we put up with the summers - for the great winters!" Haha.

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:52 PM said...

It's true - nothing like going swimming on Thanksgiving! Christmas I still have trouble with (I moved here from WI 10 years ago) - it's weird to see houses with lights but no snow. STILL!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:53 PM said...

I bet! My mom moved to Australia as a teen and she said it was so bizarre to put up a Christmas tree in summer!

Rachel on August 17, 2011 at 9:56 PM said...

Oh goodness, I can imagine.

Looks like we're the only two who are really 'in this' LOL. :)

I'm just hoping I'm not on an airplane when the winner is announced tomorrow.

StrangeDaze on August 17, 2011 at 9:56 PM said...

My nephew will be decorating the Elf!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 9:57 PM said...

Well, if we keep it up and it reaches #501 tonight, you might win before you board! Hee hee!

degood on August 17, 2011 at 10:00 PM said...

I would decorate the elf at our house but I might get help from the 5 year old.

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 10:01 PM said...

Henrietta on August 17, 2011 at 10:11 PM said...

Yep, lots of chickies! I have to be quiet when I open the back door, if the little ones hear me they start peeping their heads off and then I have to let them out into the yard to chase bugs :)

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 10:11 PM said...

Making a pop tart to eat while I enter giveaways!

Henrietta on August 17, 2011 at 10:13 PM said...

Yum! We haven't had pop tarts in ages!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 10:16 PM said...

Me either, and now I'm on a pop tart kick! Yum!

StrangeDaze on August 17, 2011 at 10:36 PM said...

I'm eating jalapeno Cape Cod chips - they are so hot! Ouch!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 10:37 PM said...

Sounds good but spicy!! I had a pretty spicy dinner - FH brought me home curry. Curry and pop tarts, that's my dinner! ;)

Henrietta on August 17, 2011 at 10:50 PM said...

We had eggrolls but they were horrible. I can't seem to find a good eggroll anywhere. Thinking I need to try and make some homemade ones!

Beeb on August 17, 2011 at 10:52 PM said...

Oooh, homemade eggrolls would be wonderful! One of my fave restaurants here makes great eggrolls.
