Our sweepstakes winner this time around was Robhag! Just for writing a review, Robhag came away with a $500 gift certificate to Sears!

Check out her winning review:

We are certainly looking forward to reading some of her reviews on her purchases with the prize money! What do you think you would buy if you won?? Even though I am not eligible :( I've certainly dreamt about running up and down the aisles at Sears and picking out some of those big ticket items... Maybe a TV or a new bed!!

We will be running Sweepstakes regularly so be sure to check back on the site for our current promotions! We have recently just finished up the October sweepstakes and will be picking a winner in the next week... Get excited! Maybe it could be you!!

Phoenixrulz81_2Being a mommy isn't easy. I wouldn't know but from the stories I have heard from my Mom... whew! I don't know how she did it, especially with twins! PhoenixRulz81 is doing it though. She is an experienced parent and experienced shopper and has been more than willing to share some of her knowledge with us! For these reasons, say congrats to PhoenixRulz81 for being selected as this week Simple Thanks winner!

For all of you mom's that love to shop for your little ones. PhoenixRulz81 has put it all to the test when it comes to looking for baby clothes. She has dished on what to look for when looking for the right size and even shopping for onesies so feel free to stop by her page and start browsing!

Did you let your grass get a little out of control this past summer? Take a look at Thatmanguy's review on the Craftsman 4-Cycle Grass Trimmer! How about your roof or your fence?

Nickthetrainer Say helloooooo to Nickthetrainer! This Aerosmith lovin,' HD watchin,' family man has been a member on our site since August and we are glad to have him! He has dedicated himself to becoming our lean, mean, reviewing machine... well maybe not mean, but we certainly look forward to reading some of his reviews. Take a look at a couple of his reviews that we thought were great so far!

Keurig Elite B40 Cofee Maker

Blackberry - Curve 8300 Cell Phone

Funny how he mentions that once he purchased his Blackberry he wasn't able to put it down and fittingly calls it his "Crackberry." We all have our addictions to gadgets and fun toys. Mine was my camera! What's yours??

Congratulations to Nickthetrainer for becoming our Simple Thanks winner this week! Be sure to stop by his page!

Time to get snappy...

Kdfischer01Kdfischer01 sure is snappy!... with her reviews and photography that is! This athlete and photographer says you can find her everywhere but we found her writing some witty reviews on everything! We are so excited to make Kdfischer01 our Simple Thanks winner and featured reviewer this week. With such a plethora of reviews, from books to cell phones to coffee, you can find quite a variety of information!

Are you snap happy as well? Is photography a hobby or maybe just something you enjoy when heading out for a night with friends and hoping to catch some great memories?! As a professional photographer, Kdfischer01 can give you some advice on cameras, including how to use them and what to look for when purchasing one.

We also mentioned that she is an athlete! Once upon a time I was one as well so I know what the aches and pains can be like. Who knew that a mattress topper could work such wonders! Or, maybe some vitamins to help prevent them from starting in the first place! Whatever the advice, Kdfischer01 has some worth listening to so be sure to visit her page!

Running with SWRdRunner

 SwdRunner   Simply... Thanks!

SWRdRunner says her Nintendo DS game, Rune Factory - A Fantasy Harvest is addicting but are they more addicting than Triscuits?? What do you think? Maybe a wheat cracker is not all that exciting but I am on the fence. My addiction to the delicious snack has gotten a little out of control but this Arizona mother of two seems to really know what she's talking about when it comes to gaming! Take a look at some of her other gaming reviews!

Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness Review

The Sims 2 Castaway Review

As a busy mother of two boys, she's got to keep her sanity somehow! Sooo, not only is she a gamer but she is also likes to read and has a great review on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for all you Harry Potter fans! I haven't read any of them yet (I know!) but it is worth checking out her review! Make sure you visit her page and read up! Don't forget to congratulate her on winning the Simple Thanks and becoming our featured reviewer as well!

Say cheese and... Smile!

GigiandadonaiSmiling really is contagious! You can't help but get a big ear to ear grin when visiting GigiandAdonai's profile and looking at her pictures. It's not just her pictures either! The entire community has enjoyed reading her reviews and commenting on her page!

What have we enjoyed so far? This diva in training sure has a sense of scents (her own play on words!). How does one really describe what a perfume or shampoo smells like? I could tell you about the headache I get when I run through department stores taking a whiff of all of the different perfumes when I'm trying to find a good one but that probably wouldn't help you very much. GigiandAdonai does a a fantastic job in taking on the scent challenge! She certainly has persuaded me to try Coco Chanel. Who doesn't want that "I belong in Hollywood" appeal? Who knew that a perfume could deliver glitz and glamor?! I will take a bottle of that please!

There is so much more to enjoy with GigiandAdonai, from books to snacks to movies. We have certainly become one of GigiandAdonai's biggest fans and you should too so make sure and congratulate her on winning the Simple Thanks!

ZwepMeet Zwep! He is our practical, value conscious, techie here on sk-you!  When it comes to technology and knowing the ins and outs of purchases, he is your guy. I'm not just talking about where and how much either! No, no. How about info on durability, performance and functionality! I bet you didn't know the DTV-PAL (digital converter box) and all other converters will only pick up the stations that will be broadcast in digital format after Feb 2009? Ok, maybe you did, but I didn't!! With such quality and detail in his reviews, Zwep is sure to provide you with some valuable and helpful advice that could come in handy!

Speaking of helpful advice... Like Zwep, I've also got a HP laptop and a Volkswagen and learned quite a bit about both from reading his reviews! If you're looking to purchase a big ticket item such as a computer or a car he can tell you about what to look for and what to avoid so check out his page to find out what you should be digging into when spending the big bucks!

Zwep and his reviews embody exactly what the sk-you community is all about and we couldn't be more excited to have here! Make sure to say hi and let him know how great his reviews are!
