I too won several months back, and was elated to find the news when I logged on. It was right before a trip to Europe with my son, and we ended up buying the luggage we used for that trip on Overstock with the gift cert. Now whenever we travel we will think fondly of the Administrator on CDF and Overstock.

My thanks go out to Admin & Overstock, and congratulations to all the winners of this month's round. Look forward to seeing another set of winners whenever there will be another giveaway in the future.

Just wanted to drop in and thank those who have been congratulating us. I really appreciate it.

I also wanted to mention to the Administrator and other Mods that although you can't "reveal" the selection process, I would be glad to help next time. I know of dozens of other members who I feel deserved the gift card more than I did. Though I appreciate it no less.

I just figured I'd mention that the money has gone towards new computer speakers (I have none currently) for our desktop. I also picked up a cable for my iphone to connect it to our stereo system. The entire order totaled 49.98 (including the $1 shipping cost). So, it appears I have 2 cents to spend still!

Thanks again to the Admin, Mods, Winners, and all of those who have come out and congratulated us. I look forward to continuing to post here.

Wow, this is a wonderful surprise and even more welcome because this is my first day back online after being absolutely steamrolled by the 'flu all last week!

Thanks to everyone who congratulated me (aw shucks, I wuz just havin fun! )

I ripped my sneakers right across the top two weeks ago, and needed a really tough pair (I am VERY hard on sneakers - walking, plowing, planting, and back in the barns and corrals, not to mention being 'slew-footed' (extreme opposite of pigeon-toed) and 'flat-footed'). I found a Really tough durable pair - that I couldn't have afforded right now otherwise! Thanks To CD! Mah dawgs have coats!

Thank you so very much for the $50 gift certificate. I was so surprised when I got the DM. I never thought I would receive this.
This is the greatest board.

Talking Thank You!

Thank you! I'm proud of the faithful posters in my "home state thread" who had pointed this out prior to me even reading my DM. (Nice one - norcalmom101!) I was shocked - surely an error. But, I checked for myself and was pleased to see norcalmom101 was correct.

As has already been pointed out, I didn't know people could win prizes just for being active sharing their views, knowledge or having fun sharing information about their hobbies etc. Great concept - building of community.

Good luck to all for future drawings!

Thanks again for making my day.

Mtn. States Resident

The total given out to active posters is now $20,350! The more somebody wrote lately, the better chance of winning. Only users still active on our forum were included. We hope to give away even more gifts in the future, so stick around, post, and invite your friends. We are also working on other features allowing our posters to earn some pocket cash (sorry, no details yet). We recognize that we have many very valuable posters not included in this short list and we thank you all for participating. With hundreds of thousands registered users, it is impossible for us to thank you all personally in a similar fashion.

Your posts here are very widely read. We had 5.9 million unique forum visitors in the last 30 days. Forum thread titles are displayed on our city info pages, so the real reach is even wider.

New $50 gift cards winners are:

Bob from down south
M3 Mitch
Mtn. States Resident
OA 5599

-Previous winners were eligible to win and will be in the future as well.
-All winners should check their Direct Messages for further info coming soon.
-Sorry, no details on the selection process are available.
-This is not any kind of endorsement of these posters' views.
-This is not a solicitation to enter any kind of sweepstakes.
-If any winner declines to accept his or her gift certificate or wants to be removed from this list, another winner will be chosen.
What a load of tosh I see overseas posters still ain't feeling the love. Not like $50 is anything here in the UK, I mean I can use that as bum wipe. I'd hand mine over to a small dog charity based in Dallas. They could use the money.

By the way has admin started to answer dm's 'cause I aint getting no satisfaction. Been waiting over two months now.

P.S over stock doesn't ship to the UK.
