  • Robin
    I love amazon! I would out it towards some new workout videos and books for when the cold weather sets in!
  • Mandy
    I love Amazon's selection of items, which makes this a hard question. I would probably get for the kitchen - I love baking and cooking and there's always something new to get :)
  • linda
    Happy 5 bargainmoose,and many more.
  • Daisy
    I have has an amazing experience wth amazon when I had to send a birthday gift to my husband in Canada where as I was residing in India then. It was quick and effective. Now that I am in Canada I would want to pick up many things from amazon from home to books.
  • Mandi
    I like that I can shop and compare all the vendors in one place. With the iPhone app I can even switch to the USA site now that I've found out how to ship to a local ferry and simply pick up my packages for a fraction of the cost of shipping into Canada. Now I can get my cosmetics for a fraction of the price. In the Canadian store I was fortunate enough to find LED light strips for a fraction of the cost and even though there were no reviews on that specific product, the company review was available to help me make an informed decision. Yay Amazon!
  • Felicia
    I would definitely use it for books on my list or some yoga DVDs and a mat. Happy Birthday :) Thank you for all the hard work and these fun contests!!
  • Silvia
    If I'd won it would be my first time ordering from Amazon! I would definitely get something that the kids need for school. I'll hear all about it on the first week in September. Mom, I need this... Mom I need that...

    This is a hard question. I think it would buy a Kindle, since I don't have an e-reader. Happy Birthday!!

    I would put it towards a snow blower for my Dad. He is 62 years old and always has to shovel when it snows and living in Winnipeg, we get LOTS of snow! I would love for my Dad to not have to put such a strain on himself so the money would definitely go towards a snowblower to make it easier on him!

  • Nana
    I would buy something that I normally wouldn`t spend for myself. I have been eyeing the Cricut Artiste Cartridge from`Close to My Heart`` It is too expensive for me to buy, so it would be nice to win $100 from Amazon to purchase it. I would then make a lot of DIY projects for my friends & family
  • Samantha
    if i won, i think i'd like to get a dslr camera. i've been saving up for a while but i think it'd be absolutely awesome to snap a picture of a person at just the right moment and to see the smile on their face when i show them what an awesome picture i took! i would love to get into photography and talk a walk sometime and enjoy nature and take some pictures of our beautiful country!
  • Samantha

    Unfortunately I would not spend it on something just for myself. Having moved across the country we are in the midst of restocking so a new toaster, crockpot, blender, you name it we have to buy it next week. Also a special birthday coming up of a little girl turning 4 so it could also be used toward a nice present.
  • Jeri
    A gift card to Amazon would be a little bit of heaven. I would start my Christmas shopping early for my four grandchildren. Certainly would have a tough time deciding on books or winter clothing but sure I would make a wise choice.
