Well, hi there! Welcome to 2013! I hope your holidays were magical and that you rang in the New Year surrounded by love, light, and glitter. I know I did.
Chris and I drove to Minnesota and back to spend the holidays with my family. I love a good road trip, and this was no exception. In fact, this might have been our best one yet, and we’ve done a lot of road trips. While we were gone, we recapped 2012, set big goals for 2013, ate Juicy Lucy burgers in South St. Paul, chased my adorable niece around, drank a lot of wine, a little bourbon, and stayed up late playing games with my sister and her husband. It was a really, really amazing trip, and I’m excited to share more here soon.
But first! I’ve got something for you, reader friends. Consider it a belated Christmas present, or a little New Year’s bonus. Today, let me introduce you to CrushHub, and give YOU the chance to win a $300 date night. Ready, set?
Here you go!
We all know some amazing single people. And I’d bet that a good number of them would love your help meeting someone incredible (because you know incredible people, right?). When it comes to meeting someone, there’s no better way than through mutual friends.
And just think, if you could enlist the help of your Facebook friends, the pool of potential matches for your single friends is almost limitless. The trick is, how do you match them all up?
That’s where CrushHub comes in.
What is CrushHub?
CrushHub is a social matchmaking game on Facebook where you and your friends work together to find the best matches among your single friends.
It’s simple. You pick a friend, tell us what makes them such a great catch (he’s the funniest person you know, she loves adventure), and then invite your friends in to see who can come up with the best match.
CrushHub will help with the suggestions, but ultimately it’s all up to you, the matchmakers. Oh, and if you’re single, it works the exact same way. Start a game for yourself, invite your friends to play matchmaker, and check out all the awesome matches they suggest for you!
What makes CrushHub unique?
The difference here is that it’s the matchmakers who are in control. From helping create profiles for their single friends, to suggesting matches, to making introductions…everything runs through the matchmakers.
It’s that easy.
Concerned about privacy?
So is CrushHub. CrushHub will never post anything to your Facebook timeline, and matches you suggest to friends are never notified. When the person being set up selects their match, it’s up to YOU to make the introduction. CrushHub will never send anything to any of your friends unless YOU specifically give the OK first.
Contest Details + $300 Visa Gift Card Prize
CrushHub is still in private beta, and right now it’s only open to users with a super special access code. Just your luck, I have one for you! And to sweeten the deal, when you sign up for CrushHub using the beta invite code DONIREE between now and January 13, you’ll be automatically entered to win a $300 Visa gift card. I’m pretty sure you could put together a pretty impressive first date with that in your pocket.
Got single friends you’d love to set up? Sign up. Are you single and want to enlist your friends to help you find your perfect match? Sign up. Sign up because CrushHub wants to cover the cost of a kick-ass first date by awarding the winner — you? — a $300 Visa gift card.
Important Note! If you have already been invited to CrushHub, whether as a matchmaker or a suggested match, you will not be asked for an invitation code when you sign up. That’s ok! You can totally still enter the contest. If you are not asked for an invitation code when you sign up (because you’ve already received an invitation), simply reply “doniree” to the welcome email you get from CrushHub when you register, and you will be entered in the contest.
Contest closes at 11:59pm PT on Sunday night, January 13. One (1) winner will be selected at random and will be announced on Monday, January 14 on @CrushHub‘s Twitter account, and on CrushHub’s Facebook page (so be sure to follow along!).
Disclaimers and details: One entry per person, please. Prize is provided by CrushHub. CrushHub is a client of EffYeah Media, and as with everything promoted here, is something I fully support and endorse.
Update! We have a winner! HUGE congrats to Jake, who blogs at MN Hometown. I’m personally pretty excited that the winner is from my home state of Minnesota. Congrats, Jake! Thanks so much for entering the contest, and have fun setting up your friends!
