LL Bean Speaks: There Was In Fact More Than One $500 Gift Card

Just got this comment from L L Bean PR:

Hi Carrie - love your site! My name is Laurie Brooks and I'm with L.L.Bean's PR department. It is crazy this morning at Old Orchard. As of 8:00am we had over 1,000 people in line. We are giving away 500 gift cards - and to help answer your reader's questions, this is the gift card distribution:

415-$25 cards
50-$50 cards
20-$100 cards
10-$250 cards
5-$500 cards

Hope you get a chance to visit the store.

Carrie here: That seems like it made it worthwhile to wait all that time for 35 to 85 people, depending on how long you'd work for 50 bucks. I feel bad, though, for the 500 people in line who won't get any gift card.

At any rate, according to this, there are no gift cards to be had now. But if you go late at night, there's still all that free entertainment and giveaways and such.

did you get a card?

i posted a deal for Shaws (so maybe the same at Jewel/albertsons) for 5 free boxes of cereal, a free $5 gift card and free coffee mate.

Oh, I didn't go. I generally don't stray far from my neighborhood to get a deal -- after all I have CVS, Jewel, Dominick's, a great local grocery and a Walgreen's all in walking distance. And the Internet.

I am going to check out your deal -- I feel like I am living at Jewel this week! I'm so happy to be able to stock up before morning sickness descends!

i really really hope it's good at all three stores!

and i really, really hope you can avoid morning sickness altogether this time around! :)
