Giveaway Carnival Day #3 - Wireless travel mouse (UPDATED with winner)

carnival_button_4

There are still contests going on over Bloggy Giveaways! Don't forget to go over and check out all of the amazing prizes that you can enter to win - there are over 700 of them over there now!!!

This is the last giveaway that I'm having this week. The first contest closed on Tuesday (check the giveaway post to see who won!) and the second just closed a few minutes ago (check the giveaway post to see who won!). Since this is the final giveaway, I'm going to run this contest for two days - it will end at 9:00 am Eastern time on Friday, February 1st.

For today's giveaway, here is the prize:

This is a very gently (barely even) used GE wireless notebook travel mouse. I bought it last fall and then within a few weeks won a wireless keyboard and mouse set that I've used ever since. Rather than have this one just sit around, I decided to offer it to one of you instead. :)

Included are the mouse (it's the smaller, travel-sized kind), USB receiver, vinyl travel pouch and instruction booklet. Again, it's in very good shape since I only used it for a short while, but please be aware that this giveaway is for a USED product.

So here's what you need to do if you'd like to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me what the last computer-related purchase you made was.
  2. Please make sure you leave a valid e-mail address or other way to reach you if you win.
  3. Linking back to this contest page is not required, but you're welcome to if you would like.
  4. One comment only, please - multiple comments will be discarded and not included in the final drawing.
  5. This giveaway is open to U. S. addresses only - sorry!
  6. Comments will be left open until 9:00 am Eastern time on February 1st.
  7. A winner will be drawn by random number generator on February 1st and notified by e-mail. This post will also be updated to state who the winner is.

Good luck! :)

This giveaway is now closed.

The random number generator came up with #47 - which is the comment left by Lomagirl, who said, "The last computer purchase I made? Photo paper to print on. I also have a pretty new printer.." Congratulations! An e-mail has gone out to you, so please check your mailbox and get back to me with your shipping information so I can get the mouse sent out to you.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my giveaways this week - it was a lot of fun!!

We bought a wireless Printer/Scanner/Fax all-in-one at Circuit City when hubby got his Christmas bonus. He bought himself a laptop too and gave me his old one as the home computer (desktop) croaked finally... after 10 years of use! lol It held up well for as much use it got from all of us.


I would love to win this for my laptop!

Count me in please.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Stop by my place to win a bath set & candles or one of two copies of a book I'm giving away. Don't miss the daily edition of contests galore that I post on my blog.

The last purchase was about several months ago when our monitor went ***blank***. At first, a simple solution would have been to replace the vide card but the tech guy recommended a new flat panel monitor. It did the trick!

In don't know if it counts, but the last purchase we made that comes close to being computer related is the tax software that we use every year to do our taxes. Before that I think the last computer related purchase we made was actually this computer. Course, that was two years ago!

The last computer-related product that I myself purchased was a Nancy Drew game for my daughter and I to play together. My husband is always purchasing something computer-related it seems. He just purchased some kind of battery back-up for my computer, but I have no idea what it is called. I would love to be entered in your drawing.

Our most recent computer-related purchase was...a computer. My beloved laptop up and died one Sunday afternoon (shows you what happens when you take too long changing a diaper!) in December. It felt like an eternity before we got a new one...cut off from the world! Gahhh!!
Thanks for the contest!

Megan said...

Thanks for this awesome giveaway, I would love to be entered to win!
The last computer related item I purchased was a 2 gb jump drive for my son to use at school. His backpack had been stolen and he needed to get that replaced pronto. Otherwise, my husband does all the purchasing and fixing. The joke is that I don't have to touch the computers when they are broken, because I sleep witht the LAN manager!

Chelsea said...

well, I actually bought a laptop mouse last, for my husband, so really, it shouldn't count. Other than that, it would probably be my ipod, if that counts, too.

Aimee said...

Our last purchase was a new laptop for myself, so this mouse would be perfect!

Liz R. said...

we just bought more memory for our mac book pro. exciting huh!

we'd love the wireless mouse.

Shana said...

ooo! OOO! Pick me! This is so neat! For what ever reason Andrew always plays under my feet while I am at the computer and he pulls the cord to my mouse, it has hit the hardwood floors to many times. Cordless would be wonderful! And I guess the last thing for my computer I bought was my COMPUTER...lol!!!

My husband finally got tired of my relentless hints that I NEEDED a laptop in order to start writing what is sure to be a 4 year long bestseller on the NYT list :-) So I got a gateway for Christmas! LOVE IT. DON'T love not having a mouse though, so this is actually at the top of my to-buy list with the birthday money I hope toget Sunday (uh-hum... hint hint - Sunday's my b'day :-)

Thanks for offering this awesome opportunity for the giveaway! You are very generous! Good luck to all!

I had to buy a new laptop...I drowned the previous one with diet coke. Disaster!

I bought an AirCard for my laptop. That way we don't have to subscribe to an internet provider and I can take the aircard with me wherever we go. We bought it from Sprint and I love it (oh-can I name the company like that? I hope so). dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

kaiilani said...

Milk in the Closet said...

Great giveaway. The last computer-related purchase I imade was a 99-cent retractable USB cable. Greatest invention! We don't keep our printer hooked up to our laptop and it was so cumbersome to figure out what to do with the cables. With this one being retractable, we just keep it plugged in to the printer and it's there when we need it but so discreet! Got it at Dollar Tree!

Missy said...

what a great idea! thank u for the giveaway~missy

katie m said...

Allison said...

Our last computer purchase was a flash drive. Now we're considering buying a new laptop. This would be very handy.

Angela said...

Last thing for me was speakers for my husbands new computer. I've used it finally, we got it in Sept, and realized how much faster and more it can handle processor-wise than mine and am green with envy. So I (not we, because I know its selfish) have decided that if we do get those rebates from the government this year, we'll pay off the last of our debt, put some in savings and buy me a new computer. And give our four year old mine. Because doesn't every four year old need a computer? Right now he uses mine because he isn't allowed to use his dads. Wait, I must be ranting. I think I was just spoiled growing up in a house with multiple computers and marrying a guy who loved them and now we have 4 we use regularly, and three in the closet. And only three computer users in the house, including the four year old. Ok, no complaints, I guess I could just buy some memory and stop whining. Anyway my sister would love this mouse. THanks for offering.

The Phamily Matriarch said...

My last purchase was a digital camera and since it needs a computer to download to...I'm considering it my last computer-related purchase. :)

I would love this wireless mouse...get rid of some of the wires so my 2 kids won't mess with them. LOL

Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Shama-Lama Mama said...

We had a mini-mouse when my first son was learning how to work the computer. It was perfect for his little hand. But now his twin brothers are coming up in age and that mouse is long gone. This would be a great replacement!
