Free People $100 giveaway



A while ago I won a contest on Chictopia and received a $100 gift card for Free People. I ordered some things, but not a lot because the gift card had to cover the $35 shipping fee to The Netherlands. When the package arrived I was asked to pay another €35 in import fees. I told the postman nope and said he could take the package back to the post office.

Now that the package has arrived back at Free People, I've been given back my gift card (well, it's not $100 now, but $95). I thought I might as well give it away to one of my lovely readers! Everyone can enter, but keep in mind the shipping costs and possible customs fee if you live outside of the States. For US citizens the shipping costs are only $7, so you guys are much better off!

All you have to do is follow me on Twitter and leave a comment under this post with your e-mail address so I can send you the giftcard if you win. The giveaway will be closed on the 1st of August at 5PM GMT. Good luck, ladies!

Thank you so much for this giveaway! It'd actually be really great for me because I live in the States. : ) And I don't have a Twitter to follow you on, but I like your Facebook page! I hope that's ok!

I never knew it was such a hassle to ship overseas! So expensive! How sad that you couldn't even use the gift card. Free people has some beautiful (and expensive) items.

My comment isn't here. :(
I once ordered something from the States and the customs fee at my front door was 60 dollars! So yeah...it really sucks. But I just the other day fell in love with a Free People Cardigan, and my mother lives in the States, this fingers crossed for meeee! :) (Twitter: @dabeesknees)

That must have been really annoying to win the prize and not even get to use it. I would be so frustrated if that happened to me.
