*CLOSED* Back To School Giveaway: $100.00 Carter’s Gift Card

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Good morning!!  Are you ready for our NEXT back to school giveaway prize?  This one comes from Carter’s children’s clothing store.  When most people think of Carter’s, they think of infant and toddler clothing. That isn’t true.  They carry sizes ranging from newborn up to children’s sizes 12. 

What I love most about Carter’s clothing is the quality.  I have  had 3 children and many articles of clothing were worn by all of them…..and they STILL looked great after all of that wear!  If you look in my children’s closets, you’d probably think you were in a Carter’s outlet! LOL!!

Now, before we get to the prize, you will DEFINITELY want to check out the great sweepstakes that they are currently sponsoring:  “The Funny Thing Is“.  Let’s face it, kids can say the most hilarious things (and usually at the most inopportune times of course).  If you have ever had a child say something that made you laugh, blush or just stop and think, then this contest is for you!  If your entry is selected from all of those submitted, you can win a Carter’s gift card!

Carter’s wants to help families with back to school purchases this year and has graciously provided one of my readers a Carter’s gift card for $100.00!!!  (This card must be redeemed in their stores, as they currently do not have their website set up to allow on-line redemption – find a location here).

  100. Alicia says

    I like all their little shirts! Sooo cute for my 2 yr old! I follow you on FB and Carter’s also.

  101. Holly says

    Carters clothes are pretty and bright would make my 2 year old look like a delight. The ruffles and frills of the dresses of all kinds would surely make my daughter look like a princess in no time. The clothes are sturdy and would surely hold up if she would happen to jump out of tree or into the mud. And after a long day when its time to say goodnight she can curl up in her nightgown and kiss me goodnight.

    Wrote this off the tip of my head . Really love Carters! Thanks for giving us an opportunity to win a gift card!

    Holly- from Pittsburgh Pa
