I love finding out about new services and products. I really find it's one of the great perks of entering online giveaways- especially blog giveaways. Companies often feels it's worth giving away a fun prize in order to get their name out in the blogosphere. I totally agree and can't count the number of times I've seen a product giveaway and thought, "Wow! That's great! I really hope I win that...and if I don't I'm still very interested!"
Now when I saw the post I realized I'd never heard of Kart Me or Rent the Runway. But I was intrigued!
Come to find out, Kart Me is a website where you can keep lists of photos and links. It sounds simple but it's really a great idea. You can create lists of recipes, fashion or home decor items, it's really endless. After you create a list or group all of your items togheter they provide you with a link to come back and visit or to give out to friends. Pretty great!
Rent the Runway is a website that allows you to "rent" dresses, clothes and accessories from the hottest new designers. It's a great site because it offers really trendy and usually unattainalbe (for me) items to rent for special occasions or just because. I love that I don't have to clunck down a mortgage-sized payment for a black tie gown or that hot one-shouldered mini dress I know I'll never wear again!

Each day Rayovac is asking a fun question about how you're going to power your summer here. For example, today I answered this question, "13 million Americans camp each year. What is your camping style? Backyard, adventerous, roughing it? My family loves to camp but we definitely do so with ammeneties! Think state or national parks with cabins! If you head here and answer the question yourself you're in the running to win a camping kit with a tent and batteries!
Not only is Rayovac giving away fun summer kits each day but they're also hosting a Twitter event on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 along with 5 Minutes for Mom.
