Search & Win

UPDATE #2!!! SWAGBUCKS has signed on to be the Main Sponsor of our New Year's Hoppin' Eve Giveaway Hop!!! Not only will they be donating one Kindle Fire as the Grand Prize anyone can win (the co-hosts are exempt), but they are also offering a second Kindle Fire to the blogger who refers the most new users to Swagbucks! That's not all!!!

Bloggers participating in the New Year's Hoppin' Eve Giveaway Hop will also receive 250 Swag Bucks for every blogger they refer to the Swagbucks Blogger Program and 50 Swag Bucks for every blogger they refer to the New Year's Hoppin' Eve Giveaway Hop!

For the bloggers: this is not only a fabulous opportunity to work with Swagbucks during this event, but afterwards as well. If you aren't a member of Swagbucks yet, CLICK HERE to sign up! The link for the blogger program is on the left side of their homepage. Please let them know Matter of Cents referred you!


Are you looking for a great way to gain more exposure for your blog, network, and win some fun prizes while celebrating the New Year at the same time? Please join Matter of Cents and Our Family World from 12:01am EST December 28th until 11:59pm EST January 2nd as we bring in 2012 with a giveaway hop! NYE is one of my favorite times of the year. To me, it symbolizes a new beginning and I think it would be fun to have a "virtual party" with all of you.

What you can expect:

  • The event will be promoted to the fullest.
  • A forum available to connect with other bloggers in the event.
  • Questions answered and detailed instructions.
  • A linky containing all participating blogs in the event.
  • A Sponsor linky so we can show our generous donors some extra "love".
  • A fun and friendly group of people more than willing to help each other.

What we expect:

  • A giveaway post specifically for this event.
  • A small paragraph (2-3 sentences) about Swagbucks
  • The event button and linky in your giveaway post
  • Prize package(s) valued at a minimum of $25 per Winner.
  • Giveaway entries should be quick and simple.
  • A valid email address to contact you with updates.
  • Participation. If you have questions, please ask them.
  • Communication. If we have questions, please answer them.
  • The event button either in your sidebar or events page of your blog (see sidebar)
Next Steps:
  • Please send $5.00 payment via Paypal to bella0421@msn.com.
  • Your blog will be approved and added to the linky in the order payment is received.
  • Please include your blog URL in the Paypal notes.
  • The fee is to ensure participation, help defray some of the costs to promote the event, and is non-refundable.
Sign ups will close on December 15th.

  5. Hi Adelina
    Just signed up and paid. Looking forward to it.
    Thank you.

  6. Hello, I sent payment on Aug 9 & wasn't sure if I gave you an email address or anything. I just wanted to make sure you received payment & I was good to go 🙂 I know it's a while away but I sent payment early that way I could get at the top 😉 
    Thanks, Rita 

  7. Signed up 🙂

  8. Hi! Just signed up! Sent payment! 

  9. Allison White says:

    Just signed up!  Any idea about that Swagbucks will be sponsoring yet???  Very exciting!

    • MatterofCents says:

      The other prizes will be finalized next week. For now, I only know about the iPad. Thanks for signing up! You should receive a Welcome email from me soon. 🙂

  10. I am so grateful for this!  Thanks for organizing this.  I sent my payment today, and I am looking forward to it!

  11. Woo hoo! So excited, signing up and sending payment right now!

  12. I signed up, paid, and already posted about it!!! I hope I get some referrals…I wanna win a Kindle Fire!!

  13. Just signed up! Super excited! 

  14. I joined!
    I'm excited for this hop. It'll be my second and I'm looking forward to it.

  15. Hi! I signed up for this and paid last October 28 but I don't see my name (Bay Area Mommy) on the linky. 🙁

    • MatterofCents says:

      I am sorry for the mixup. I don’t see you on the sign up sheet, but looked and just found your Paypal payment. Please fill out the form in the post and I will add you immediately. Again, I apologize for the oversight. 🙁

  16. No prob! I thought I filled out the form back then. That was an oversight on my part. Thanks for responding right away!

  17. Hi! I just wanted to check on something.. I really wanted to sign up for this hop, but the linky is closed. The info above the linky says sign ups close Dec 15th? I would love to sign up if I still can!!

    • MatterofCents says:

      Thanks for asking! Yes, the event is still open for blogs to sign up. However, the linky is closed because everyone is being added in the order payment is received. So, if you are still interested, please fill out the form in the post, send your $5 to the Paypal address, and we’ll get you added asap. 🙂

  18. I really want to be part of a multi blog giveaway but I feel like with so many blogs – my blog will get lost. Do you plan on doing a multi blog giveaway with maybe 15-20 blogs? I would love to be part of that. Thanks for these kinds of events!

    • MatterofCents says:

      I hope you will reconsider participating in this one. I’m expecting all of us to get a great deal of traffic. Also, even though you might be at the bottom of the linky, you could see some positive results. Some people prefer to start at the bottom since most typically start at the top. As far as a giveaway event with fewer blogs, I am taking sign-ups for my Blogoversary event which begins a few days after NYHE ends. http://matterofcents.net/2011/12/big-plans-to-celebrate-our-1st-blogoversary/

  19. Hi there, I just signed up.  Looking forward to it. 

  20. Ok Im in 🙂 Looking forward to this! Thank!! Sending my info tonight.
