$400 Furniture GIVEAWAY!

Sponsored Giveaway

giveaway coverThis GIVEAWAY is now closed. The winner will be announced later today.

To celebrate the beginning of the summer season and help you kick-start furnishing your first apartment,  Apt2B.com, one of our favorite online furniture sites, will give one lucky GIVEAWAY winner a $400 gift certificate to their site. 

But that’s not all! Just like in Kindergarten, everyone is winner in this giveaway, and all participants will get the second prize: 10% discount site-wide on Apt2B, with discount code  “MY1STAPT10”.  Also, in-home delivery is free in the US.

We love this giveaway because the winner will be able to pick and choose how they will want to spend their gift. Will they pick an accent chair and a great pillow, or side table and a lamp or put the money towards a sofa or sectional? All the options are open.

The rules for this giveaway are simple — in the comments to this post just answer two questions:

  • What was the first piece of furniture (other than bed) that you bought for your first apartment?
  • What’s the next item on your furniture wish list right now?

The giveaway will close at midnight on Tuesday, June 7.  We’ll summarize the answers to the giveaway questions, and announce the randomly selected winner on Wednesday, June 8.

    Apart from my bed, the first thing I bought was a dresser because you will always need somewhere to store your clothes especially if the apartment doesn’t have a closet. The next thing on my wish list is a sofa, so that I can invite more than one person over at a time.

    My first furniture purchase was a cute wooden coffee table. It was freshman year and all I could really afford was this $15 table. It ended up lasting for 2 years then my rambunctious brothers broke it in half. This time around I really want a nice office chair for my desk. Something cute to motivate me on late night studying sessions. Lol. RIP little wooden coffee table.

    The first piece of furniture I bought in my first apartment was a hallway bench for shoes from IKEA, however we used it as a coffee table, storage shelf for school and leisure paraphernalia, and as an extra two seats at the dinner table when we had guests. This was of course the brainchild of my Scandinavian mother-in-law, tack svärmor! The next item I would like is a set of chairs, ideally ones that can be folded or stored in a closet.

    Oh what a wonderful giveaway and such a neat store. I have so many favorites already: l love the garnet end tables, the Lancaster end tables, the Zelzah console table, the Clyde rug, the longwood rug in beige, the Carrol rug, the monrovia armed chair, the Oxford distressed chairs, and so many more items. My first item was a couch. I honestly could use any of the above items that I love so much because my husband, son, and I are building a home right now. So any furniture is definitely better than none at all. Thanks for sharing this gem of a store to us looks like I’ll be showing my husband!
