Win It!

Giveaway: iPhone 5

iPhone 5Congratulations to our winner, JadesMommy7!

When it comes to sending holiday cards, the whole thing can be a major headache. You have to find that perfect picture of the family where no one's eyes are closed or, even worse, stage one with all of the corny holiday fix-ins.

Well what if I told you that sending out cards this year didn't have to be so difficult? Meet Ink: an app that enables you to take photos, make cards, and send them snail mail style with a few clicks of your iPhone.

We're so in love with Ink that we're giving one VERY lucky Stir reader an iPhone 5 pre-loaded with Ink. For $1.99 a card, you'll save a whole lot of stress and don't even need to put the stamps on yourself.

To enter to win an iPhone 5 pre-loaded with Ink, just tell me:

Do you send holiday cards? How do you pick the perfect family photo year after year?

Here are the rules for this giveaway here on The Stir:

The “Giveaway: "iPhone 5” starts on November 30, 2012 at 3:10 p.m. (ET) and ends at 11:59 p.m. (ET) on December 7, 2012 (the “Sweepstakes Period”).

Enter by replying to this post with an appropriate comment during the Sweepstakes Period. Limit one entry per day during the Sweepstakes Period. One (1) winner will be selected in a random drawing of all eligible entries on or around December 9, 2012 to receive the iPhone 5 pre-loaded with Ink (total valued at $649.99).

    I don't send cards out.  Everyone that would receive a card from me is already in touch on the holidays.

    No, we don't send holiday cards, though with something like Ink, that makes it so easy, we would have no excuse not to start!

    We do send cards out, but haven't done one with a family photo. I send Santa cards or similar cards like that out.

    We only send out cards every other year when we take a professional family photo.

    We have never done Christmas cards, but I would have no problem if I could actually win an iPhone 51 I cant afford an expensive phone so that would be an awesome gift!

    I try to send out cards. I usually make them out of a funny picture of my kids.

    We do send cards but sometimes I procrastinate too much and they end up being pretty generic with random pics, oopsies.
