Johnsonville Sausage Online Video Contest

Welcome to Finance Foodie’s new series: Fiscally Fun Freebies. Working in the finance field has taught me a lot about hardwork, the value of a dollar, and the importance of saving for a rainy day. This series will bring you the scoop on all the free food and product offerings from around the nation – because who doesn’t love a truly free lunch!

Johnsonville Sausage recently announced the commencement of a new online video contest where you have the chance to win over $3,000 worth of cash and prizes - including grilling and camping gear from Coleman, gift cards from Gander Mountain, a collection of products from Hefty, and coupons for free Johnsonville products. To participate, all you need to do is take a video showing how you enjoy Johnsonville Sausage and upload it to www.ShareYourVille.com. There are four categories for people to enter their videos in the contest, and a winner will be chosen in each category.

Fiscally Fun Freebies #1: Free Sausages for the Early Bird
And here is where it gets reallllllly good! The first 50 videos submitted to the contest AUTOMATICALLY receive coupons for FREE Johnsonville products. (An inside source told me that this information hasn’t been widely released, so there is a good chance a financefoodie.com reader will be one of the first 50!)

Fiscally Fun Freebies #2: Secret Codes equals Big Bucks
In addition to the video contest, Johnsonville has created an online game and sweepstakes, "GRILLVILLE," (basically like Tetris with meat for bricks!) where you can win $5,000 in cash and prizes just for playing! Plus bonus entries can be earned for typing in secret code words is equal to 5 extra entries. All you have to do is enter the secret code into the GRILLVILLE game under the bonus entries tab!

(In case you were wondering, this week’s Johnsonville GRILLVILLE secret code word is BRATS. You can thank me with a new pair of shoes when you win the $5,000!)

Fiscally Fun Freebies #3: The Financefoodie.com Giveaway



Congrats #167! -dddiva
"Swimming is my fave thing in the summer."
Please email financefoodie [at] gmail [dot] com with your mailing address so I can send your prize! You have 2 days (48 hours) to respond or the prize goes to alternate winners
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
So in case you are not inclined to do either (not too sure why anyone would say no to free food and money, but I guess we all have our quirks), financefoodie.com is giving away a “Summer Grillville” prize pack to get you into backyard BBQ mode

The prize pack includes: (2) coupon for a FREE package of Johnsonville Brats; (1) coupon for a FREE package of Hefty Plates/Bowls/Cups; and (1) coupon for a FREE package of Johnsonville Italian Sausages

You can enter up to FIVE times:

1. Required: In my comments section, tell me what’s your favorite summertime activity (I love lying out on my roofdeck on the weekends with a nice cold Diet Coke and the Sunday Times!)
2. Follow Finance Foodie on Twitter (leave separate comment telling me this)
3. Follow Johnsonville on Twitter (leave separate comment telling me this)
4. Reblog / Retweet this giveaway (leave separate comment telling me this)
5. StumbleUpon or Digg this contest (leave separate comment telling me this)

Contest ended Friday July 9 at 5pm EST. Winners will be chosen via random integer generator on random.org announced on the financefoodie.com site shortly afterwards that evening!
