Kmart Gift Card $100 Giveaway (closed 15.6.11)

June 1, 2011 · 114 comments

The lovely people at Kmart are running a slightly fabulous promotional giveaway for their upcoming Toy Sale and they have set aside a $100 gift card to giveaway to a Truth About Mummy reader.  Pretty fabulous hey!  What  a great opportunity to get a jump-start with the christmas shopping (don’t freak out when I tell you this but it’s almost only 6 months away!)  

To enter all you  have to do is comment below telling me in 25 words or less  ‘What’s top of your Kmart Toy catalogue shopping list and why’. To get an idea about how far you can make $100 go at Kmart visit  The winner will be picked by the almighty random number generator on the 15th of June 2011 and emailed to notify of their win – so please remember to  leave me a valid email address.  If you’d like an extra entry you can follow this blog (either by following directly with Google Friends or by using the facebook, twitter and RSS buttons above right) and write a second comment below telling me which method you have used. 

The Kmart Toy Sale Catalogue Starts  on Thursday 30 June, 2011 and you can get a little sneak peek preview of it online at the Kmart website from the 23 June.   I have not received anything for hosting this giveaway – but I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad I did!  The giveaway is open to all Australian Residents and the winner will be expected to do a ‘happy dance of joy’ in the privacy of their own home!  Goodluck.


Miss De Jour giveaway here (open to 21 June)
