The winner came from one of my Facebook entries……..drumroll please
The winner is Melissa. I have sent an email to you through Facebook. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
It’s time for my annual microscope giveaway in honor of my anniversary with Discount Home School Supplies
. It has been 4 years since I started the journey in selling homeschool books.
Here is the information you need to know for the microscope giveway:
The contest is open to residents of the United States only. I am sorry that I cannot offer this internationally at this time.
You can enter by leaving a comment on this blog entry (if you don’t have a blogger account, leave me an email address), becoming a fan and leaving a comment on Facebook, or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can do all three for more chances to win! (Only one entry per method per person.)
The contest will end at midnight on Monday, July 27, 2009. I am not going to be picky with EST standard time versus Pacific Time. I will be in bed asleep that night when the contest ends. I will get up on Tuesday, July 28, 2009, and tally the entries from the sources of entry. Then I will have a random drawing.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would tell your friends and send them to this blog. I am not making it mandatory for you to enter the contest. But the more people who know about it, the more people who will learn about my website.
You can also receive FREE shipping on any order that is $25.00 or more. This is a limited time offer for FREE shipping. Visit my website Discount Homeschool Supplies to take advantage of this deal!
This is a great time of year to order homeschool materials. When August rolls around, I see more backorders from publishers. The earlier you order, the better chances you have of getting your items quickly.
Here’s the technical info on the microscope:
Two Microscopes in One!
Two-in-One Combination Microscope
with over 50 pieces of accessoriesby Premiere Microscopes
Included with your order will be a FREE copy of
The World of the Microscope Book!
Introducing the newest member of the My First Lab series! Two light sources allow this microscope to magnify both slides and solid objects! View slides, coins, plants, stamps, insects, jewelry, and more!You would need two instruments to view what this one does–a basic biological scope to look at specimens on a slide (light shines up from under the slide and through the tissue) and a traditional stereo or dissecting microscope to view solid objects at lower power (light shines down onto the specimen to be observed). This new Duo Scope with dual lighting allows for both types of applications! Cordless battery power makes it portable for field study. Priced to fit any budget with the same fine quality as our other scopes.
