Crossword Sale 2011

Posted by Kevin on January 01 at 10:17 am

crosswordSaleHappy New Year, everyone! We’ve decided to start 2011 off the same way we started 2010 — with a Crossword Sale! That means there’s going to be a new sale EVERY day in January. We’ve put together a crossword puzzle with 31 hints, one for each day in January. The answers indicate which items are on sale for that day. The puzzle is a little bit harder this year, so sharpen your pencils!

The sales last 24 hours each, so you need to add the items to your shopping bag that day in order to get the reduced prices. Once they’re in your bag, you have 7 days to complete your purchase (all the details are available on the Shopping Bag page).

The Bonus…

    I love crossword puzzles too, however I am not US based and therefore some of the clues are just beyond me….. I have tried googling but it doesn’t help :(

    NRA….. National Rifle Association…. really?? That what google tells me it is.

    I am having the same problem as Lynn in Oz :-( since English isn’t my native language, crossword puzzles in English aren’t easy for me. I probably will figure it out, when most of the words are given lol

    The Gunmetal category left out some things….there are seed beads with “gunmetal” in the title. :)

    No fair using Google to find the answers! (darn, why didn’t I think of that?) Having fun with these tricky – and silly – clues! (watch out where the huskies go & don’t you eat that _ _ _ _ _ _ snow!)
