$50 CSN Stores Giveaway & Review

Have I ever told you that I love working with CSN?  CSN is a network of over 200 online stores, selling everything from name brand kitchen gadgets and appliances to school supplies to dining room chairs.

I’ve purchased MANY things from CSN (yes, purchased), but my favorite items are my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and my Le Creuset bakeware pieces.

And by pieces, I mean any one of the 5 Le Creuset pieces I purchased for under $150.00 a few months ago.  When I purchased my pieces, Cookware.com (one of the CSN stores) was running a special, but their everyday prices are more than just competitive.  For example, one of the items I purchased is a Le Creuset 9″ Sqaure Baking Dish, and it came with a “bonus” 5″ baking square for $24.95.  The cheapest I’ve found it online anywhere else is for $24.95, BUT, that doesn’t include the extra 5″ baking square that is PERFECT for baking a dessert for 2.  Every item I’ve bought from CSN has been shipped promptly, packaged well and is in perfect condition.  Plus, they carry many of the brand items I am devoted to.

All this is leading up to the greatest part of this post!  CSN Stores is offering one of you a $50 gift certificate to any of the stores within the CSN family of stores.  How great is that?

Entering is easy:

  • Visit any of  the CSN Stores and then come back and tell me in a comment what you’d by with $50.00.

For EXTRA entries (separate comments, please):

  • Tweet this giveaway (up to 5 times a day, spaced at least 1 hour a part).  Please be sure to include the link to the giveaway.
  • Follow me on whatever platform (s) you use most….Facebook, Twitter, etc. (each platform is worth one entry, but you must let me know in a comment).


Fine print: This contest is open to US and Canadian readers and ends OCTOBER 24th at 11:59 p.m PT. If you choose to purchase an item that does not have free shipping, you will be responsible for shipping costs. If you are in Canada, there may be International fees that you will be responsible for. You must be 18 to enter.  Winner will be drawn randomly and contacted via email. CSN is also giving me a $50.00 credit at any of the CSN stores.
