Social Network Shopping at Maggie's Direct {$25 Social Bucks Giveaway}

Maggie's Direct logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, ShellieAndBrutus!}

I often wonder what life was like before the internet.

I can vaguely remember looking up a word's definition in the dictionary or finding out about a distant location by visiting the library and finding the right letter encyclopedia. When I needed to call somewhere, I had to find a phone book. And when I wanted to make a purchase, I was limited to what was found right there on my store's shelves.

Someday my great-great-grandchildren are going to hear about things like that and call them primitive.

Fortunately for us in today's age of technology, it takes but a few clicks of the mouse and just about anything and everything can be delivered right to your door. So what's the next step in online shopping? The arrival of Social Network Shopping thanks to the innovative minds behind Maggie's Direct.

Maggie's DirectMaggiesDirect.com is a fun new online store that offers a truly unique shopping experience. Their ever-growing and changing selection of high quality products are always offered at affordable prices, made even better with the power of Social Network Shopping. Sounds interesting, right?

The concept is simple, particularly if you're someone who likes to save money on the finest products for your home – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, gifts, and much more. This wide selection of products (many are manufactured right there in Maine) includes finding great deals on bedding, towels, sleepwear, decor, baby gifts, and so much more.

home productsSo where does the social aspect fit in? That comes into play with Maggie's unique Social Bucks program. Quite simply, 1 Social Buck = $1 in store credit for anything on Maggie’s site, including sale and clearance items (there's even a big clearance event coming up with up to 75% off). Earn Social Bucks by signing up for an account, making a purchase, voting in weekly polls, sharing on Facebook, reviewing a product, referring your friends, and more!

Once you've referred your friends over to join (which they'll want to, once they've heard about the bargains you've been finding), you'll earn 1 Social Buck for every $20 that they spend so it's a win-win situation for everyone. Plus, each person you refer to the site that signs up for an account also earns you an entry for Maggie's Shopping Spree drawings that are held each month. The deals just keep on coming as long as you're social!

Maggie's Direct reviewWhen it comes to shopping at Maggie's Direct, there are savings to be found on every page. Currently they are holding an exclusive shopping event on their Hotel Collection, which is perfect for all seasons. Down or synthetic comforters, pillows, sheet sets, duvet covers... if you've been thinking about sprucing up your bedroom for spring, now is definitely the time.

But not only will you find the gorgeous items that you're looking for at low prices, you will earn 50% back in Social Bucks for use on your next purchase - there is no minimum order and you'll even receive free shipping to the lower states! This really isn't a sale to be missed, as you can pick up some pretty incredible deals.

For example, the Queen Warmer Level Down Comforter has an MSRP of $239 plus shipping. On Maggie's it retails for $149, but during this event you'll then receive 50% back in Social Bucks ($74!) on top of that. Essentially you’ll be purchasing a $239 comforter for only $75!

down comforter saleNo matter what your budget, you are sure to find the luxury products you're shopping for at the prices that won't break the bank. And don't forget that shopping is always better with friends... and in the case of MaggiesDirect.com, it's an even bigger bargain!

From cozy pajamas and the softest pillows to benefit your sleep to the high quality pots and pans for the chef in your life to the cutest baby shower gifts around, the next time you go shopping, head to Maggie's first.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to pick up a great deal on their way to being a social network shopper, because...

One lucky person will win $25 in Social Bucks to Maggie's Direct!
