Holiday Gift List Challenge- 4 Days Left- Win a $100 Gift Card!


A couple of weeks ago, I took the American Express Gifting Quiz on Facebook and found out I was a "Creative Gifter". Usually that's true- I like to take time to find the perfect gift, or combination of gifts (the big gift+2 medium gifts+ 5 stocking stuffers+candy) but this year with a baby, I spent my scant time on research and I haven't had time for the actual gift-buying. Uh oh. I just took the quiz again, in my present frame of mind, and it's confirmed: "LAST MINUTE GIFTER".

American Express challenged me to find the perfect gifts for people on my list and I think I've found some great ones.


My niece is a film student, and a total videophile, so she's been wanting a Blu-ray Disc Player for a while. I wanted to get her a really good one, and I think the Samsung 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player qualifies. It has Ultra Fast Play so movies start playing right away, no more spinning and waiting, and of course, full 1080p resolution. It even supports 3D (naturally) if you're lucky enough to have a 3D television. The best thing about this player is that through wifi- it helps your television become a totally connected media center. You can use Samsung-supported apps like Netflix and Hulu Plus for streaming content, as well as familiar apps like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. The total? 66,600 points. Done.

Now I have used about a third of my points, but I'm running very short (!!!) on time to buy my gifts for my husband and my sister. Sounds tricky, but I'll tomorrow I'll give you some hints on how to be a crafty last-minute gifter while using American Express membership rewards.

And remember- after my own challenge concludes (December 22nd), I'll pick one reader to win a $100 American Express Gift Card.

How to win:

1) Take the Holiday Gifting Personality Quiz on Facebook.

2) Post your results in the comments section on this post or others in the Holiday Gift List Challenge. You will have to provide an email address so we can contact you if you win.

Good luck to everyone and wish some for me as well.
