While spending time "pinning" today on the latest most popular social network, Pinterest, I came across an oatmeal scarf that I absolutely loved from a company I was unfamiliar with called Land's End Canvas.
After looking at the scarf and where it came from, I noticed it was in a Pinboard called "Lands’ End Canvas Holiday Pin it to Win it." I was immediately intrigued! After a little bit of Googling, I found out they were having a Pinterest contest! This was a first of its kind I have seen. I've barely seen any brands on Pinterest and someone is already having a contest on Pinterest!
Here are the instructions for the contest:
Create Lands’ End Canvas Pin Board – Create a Lands’ End Canvas Holiday Pin it to Win it Board on Pinterest and categorize under Women’s or Men’s Apparel.
Pin Your Favorite Lands’ End Canvas Items – Go to the Lands’ End Canvas Pinterest Boards to pin 10 – 20 of your favorite Lands’ End Canvas items.
Email Your Board Link – Email a link to your board for a chance to win one of ten $250 Lands’ End Canvas Gift Cards to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also follow @LandsEndCanvas to get updates on this contest and other deals they are currently having.
