Going to the Dogs Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to #51 Andrea S for winning our most recent Going to the Dogs Giveaway! Andrea will be the recipient of a $25 KAMsnaps gift certificate, a $25 Squishylicious.com gift certificate, and a beautiful $280 Philippe Ferrandis designer necklace.

Thank you to all those who participated. If you've now signed up with Mr.Rebates, don't forget to visit there first to see if your online purchases qualify for cash back. Remember, not only will you save money, but because you signed up using our benefiting non-profit charity as a referral, they will also receive 20% of your earnings! A very easy way to lend a helping hand towards a good cause without costing you a penny.

Sassy, an 11-year old boxer/lab dumped at an overcrowded shelter as a result of a divorce.

Buddy, a 9-yr old golden retriever mix also surrendered to an overcrowded shelter.

These past couple of weeks, as part of the Walkin' the Bark Rescue volunteer team, I was able to help get these senior dogs out of the shelter and into foster homes where they will live comfortably until the are adopted.

Sassy's all smiles now that she's part of a home again--which includes a small dog and a cat!

There's Buddy, after his terribly matted hair was shaved off, enjoying a walk with Popeye, a 2-legged rescue.

Going to the Dogs Giveaway - $280 Philippe Ferrandis Necklace

Our next Going to the Dogs Giveaway starts now. For those of you who are new to our giveaways, we're calling this one "Going to the Dogs" because it helps to benefit a non-profit animal rescue. You'll see how further down.

The Prize

The winner will receive 3 prizes. First, a $25 gift certificate to our online store, www.KAMsnaps.com.

Second, a $25 gift certificate to Squishylicious.com. Squishylicious has all sorts of fun tees for the whole family, including the baby. They even have a selection of bibs and onesies. (Thank you Squishy for donating this prize to our giveaway!)

And the biggest prize of all, the winner will also receive a beautiful Palm Beach pendant necklace by French couture designer Philippe Ferrandis, worth $280. You can read a bit more about Philippe Ferrandis here.

An Extra Prize & Winner

The retailer donor has generously offered to add a 2nd prize if there are at least 700 entries to this giveaway. If that happens, a 2nd winner will be selected to receive a stunning Philippe Ferrandis Jaipur Crystal Bracelet, worth over $230. So encourage your friends and family to enter this giveaway!

How to Enter

- This giveaway is open to US residents only. Must be at least 18 years of age to enter.

- Leave your email address in at least 1 of your comments so that we can contact you if you are the winner. To avoid spam, emails should be in this form: sales at kamsnaps dot com

- If it says 1 comment, leave 1 comment. If it says 2 comments, leave 2 comments, and so forth.

You must do BOTH of these entries to qualify:

1) Leave 1 comment with your favorite print (other than the ones shown above) from Squishylicious.com.

2) Sign up for a Mr.Rebates account using this link: http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=138696. You must use that link. You may also enter dogs at walkinthebark.org (replace the "at" with @) as the Referrer. Once you've signed up for an account there, come back here and leave 2 comments with the first 5 characters of the email address you used to sign up.

Now what exactly is Mr. Rebates and why should you join? Here's a brief overview of how it works:

1. Go to the Mr. Rebates website and log in (register through this link if you're not currently a member: http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=138696)

2. Search for the online store you want to purchase from. They have over 2000 stores listed (including eBay) as well as tons of coupon codes for each store.

3. Click on the link to that store. It will then take you to that store's website.

4. Make your purchase as usual.

5. You'll earn cash-back for a % of your purchase. You'll need to accumulate at least $25 for a payout, and it does take 90 days for rebates to be processed (to account for returns, exchanges, etc), but after the first 90 days, if you use Mr. Rebates on a regular basis, you won't even notice.

6. Plus if you refer others, you will earn 20% of their rebates as well. And that's how by using Mr. Rebates, you can help our benefiting charity raise funds by just doing what you normally already do -- online shopping! Just be sure to use this link to sign up: http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=138696.

Note: If you already have a Mr. Rebates account, it will not qualify as an entry to this giveaway. You must sign up for an account using the link above (so that it will benefit the charity).

Free Sample Cap: F Light Brown

Purchasing a KAM color card is a quick and handy way to see all 60 basic KAM snap colors. However, the color cards don't include our ever-increasing line of custom colors. So every few weeks, we'll offer a free sample cap in one of our custom colors. Collect them all! You can even make your own color card by attaching each cap onto an index card or piece of cardboard, using a socket on the other side to hold it in place--just don't forget to label each color.

We will rotate the colors offered, so if you miss any, just wait until they come around again. Please note that supply is limited, so if we should run out after you've placed your order, we will substitute with another sample color.
