Giveaway: $100 Ace Hardware Gift Card

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

Ace Hardware is offering some post-Thanksgiving savings with some Ace Hardware Coupons. On Saturday, November 26th, you can save 50% Off one regular-priced item under $30. There’s also one for Sunday, November 27th for $10 Off a $50 regular-priced merchandise purchase.

These coupons may come in handy, not only for everyday items, but also for some gifts on your list that may not get regularly discounted. They sell more than just hardware items, such as tools. I’ve often gone to Ace for quite a few of my gardening needs. I may have to use their coupons to check out if I can save on some items for next year’s season. I also like to invest in a new bird feeder each winter–kind of like a gift for the birds that are kind enough to visit. Also don’t forget that they sell paint, in case you are planning on adding a splash of color to the house in time for your holiday parties.

Ace Hardware has been so kind to offer me a $100 Ace Hardware Gift Card to giveaway to a lucky reader. I was very excited about this offer as I know it will help someone with a holiday gift or to get some much needed things for house repairs.

Remember, you won’t win if you don’t try. So be sure to get your entries in before the cut-off. Good Luck to all of you! You can use the Ace Hardware Store Locator to see if there’s one near you.

  33. says

    If I won I would probably never leave the store since without extra money I can wander around for hours. There is always a new project for me as I discover new exciting options everytime. Sometimes I have forgotten the items I went in for but left with a cart full anyway. Good times.

    I would give it to my grandma for Christmas so she could buy some bird food and a new bird feeder. She is 79 years old and loves to look out at the birds.

  99. RGValleyGal says

    Oops… forgot to say what happened to my shed! There is a ficus tree, ancient in age, that toppled its heaviest branches onto my shed during a recent windy day. It just came crashing down and scared my little puppy and me to pieces! Found out that one of the branches had actually pierced my Suncast shed’s roof and also “warped” the left-side door. It’s been tarped in case of rain while I gather the money to replace it. All that remains of the tree is a super-fat base with some green leaves starting to try to grow a new tree!

  100. Sharon Rogers says

    We would buy things like paint or whatever we need to fix holes from nails in the walls etc. since we have to move due to my husbands job. We are just hoping that won’t happen before christmas since we’d leave family!

    I would buy the $199 tree; I didn’t any of the other trees that were there when I went there today.

    I may use at least part of the money for a Christmas Village item because I get a new one each year as a tradition and I usually use my 50% one item of $30 or less good on Black Friday for that so I would still have money left over to buy my hubby something for Christmas!
