My Money Blog Thanksgiving Giveaway Winners!

First all, thanks for everyone who participated in my Thanksgiving Giveaway. I think it was a huge success, and I was overwhelmed by the response. As for my weekend, my family was in town and despite all my anti-consumerism ramblings we did a fair bit of shopping. It was great to see them and I look forward to seeing the other half of my family over the Christmas holidays. I truly have much to be thankful for.

Enough of that, let’s get to giving out some prizes! First, I had to split up them up between guessers and bloggers. This was simply done by Excel’s random number generator add-in. Here are the results:

Guessing Prizes
» Omni Bean Bag Chair
» Smart Money Magazine
» The Richest Man in Babylon
» The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner
» The Bogleheads Guide to Investing
» The Money Coach?s Guide to Your First Million
» The Big Money
Blogging Prizes
» Car and Driver Magazine
» A Random Walk Down Wall Street
» The Four Pillars of Investing
» The Big Money
» Health Care on Less Than You Think: The New York Times Guide
» Index Funds: The 12-Step Program for Active Investors
» $20 Gift Certificate

Guessing Winners
The winning number, as determined by the Dow’s end, was 95. Three people picked 95, two picked 94, and two picked 96. This actually worked out perfectly as there were 7 prizes. All ties were broken by who entered first. 94 and 96 were treated equally. Here are the winners, by who gets first pick of prizes:

1. Nathan Yarrow
2. David
3. John
4. Yogi
5. Dan
6. Gallelo
7. Chief

Blogging Winners
These were determined again by random number generation.

1. The Myth of the Metals
2. Team Drunken Panda
3. Divorce To Financial Freedom
4. Simply Thrifty
5. Money Smart Life
6. flipbot
7. AJ

How to claim your prize
I am going to try to send out e-mails after I write this to everyone who won. Bloggers please contact me instead. (I don’t know all your e-mails.) You must reply with a ranking of all the prizes that you want in your category. Obviously, the #1 person only needs to send me one pick, as they get first choice. The #2 person only needs to send in two picks, and so on. For example, if I was the #4 guessing winner, I might send in the following list:

1. Omni chair (want the most)
2. Automatic Millionaire Homeowner
3. Richest Man
4. Bogleheads (want the least)

Hopefully that makes sense? I’ll also need your mailing address. The name can be fictional if you’re worried about privacy, but I’m not responsible if the mail carrier doesn’t deliver it.

Okay, I think that’s it. Stay tuned for next time! 🙂
