Saravena iced tea maker giveaway (#IcedTeaMonth)

June is National Iced Tea Month and comes at the perfect time with the hot weather arriving. I'm a fan of all kinds of iced tea, and I drink it at home, at work, and on the go.

The tea comes in a really nice canister, which could be great as a gift. I imagine my wife will be saving these when the tea is gone...

Free entry to any Spartan Race in the continental U.S. [giveaway]

Last year I participated in the Spartan Race sprint at Fenway Park in chilly November (thankfully no water obstacles!), and it was more challenging than I expected.

The race throws all kinds of curve balls at you, and some things you just don't train for, like crawling a hundred yards underneath taught ropes (or barbed wire) at an incline. The incline makes it infinitely tougher. When was the last time you saw someone at the gym crawling?

Spartan Race has a handful of ballpark races, and if you're nearby one of 'em, you should consider signing up. It gives you the chance to run throughout the park - even on the field - and it's a rare experience. I'm looking forward to Fenway again this year.

There's also a race pass available for $250 that covers any three races, which ends up being a good value if you like to do more than one race. Personally, I'm a one-and-done kind of guy, but I know there are plenty of you diehards out there.


So who wants to win something?! The folks at Spartan Race have been gracious enough to permit me to offer up a free entry to any Spartan Race in the continental U.S. Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. You may share on Twitter once a day for extra points for the duration of the giveaway.

The code will work one time for any open heat (non-confirmed start time) in any Spartan Race in the continental U.S. And if you don't win the giveaway, you can use code SPARTANBLOGGER for 10% off any race.

Memorial Day discount for Spartan Race 2015

Time for a Memorial Day discount courtesy of the folks at Spartan Race!

Last year I participated in the Spartan Race sprint at Fenway Park in chilly November, and it was more challenging than I expected. Thankfully I've got five months to train for the next one.

The race throws all kinds of curve balls at you, and some things you just don't train for, like crawling a hundred yards underneath taught ropes (or barbed wire) at an incline. The incline makes it infinitely tougher. When was the last time you saw someone at the gym crawling?


So back to that discount! The folks at Spartan Race have been gracious enough to offer a discount code (MEMORIAL) for up to $40 off an upcoming race.

Please see below for special details and be sure to take advantage of this rare discount. Check out the upcoming Spartan races and use code MEMORIAL before it expires May 27th.

$50 credit for apparel at Proozy.com [giveaway]

I'm a sucker for polo shirts ever since my wife got me into golf a few years ago. Polos are comfortable, breathable, and easy to throw on in the morning whether you're heading to work or the golf course.

And Proozy.com has lots of polos and tops to choose from!

I recently got my hands on the Under Armour Syntax Emboss polo shirt from Proozy. They're the go-to internet retailer where you can find find deeply-discounted brand name products. At Proozy, they take pride in offering amazing brands for the best prices.

Under Armour polo shirt
Under Armour Syntax Emboss polo shirt in "Academy" color.

I love this Under Armour polo, and it's an ideal shirt for me, a combination of business casual and active wear. The fitting is great and true to size. I'm tall and on the lean side as you can probably tell, and the XL size is perfect with a bit of room to tuck in my pants.

The color is called "Academy," which is a navy blue and has lime green stripes along the shoulders that really pop. It's a nice contrast. Also, there are a couple spare buttons hidden underneath the collar which could come in handy in the future. I can't remember the last time I needed to replace a polo button, though.

Too cool wearin' the Under Armour Syntax Emboss polo shirt.

The material is comfortable and pretty lightweight, and for hot days on the course, this could be my go-to shirt. Under Armour is beginning to impress me with their quality stuff. Whether it's for the office or the golf course, look no further than this polo for comfort and style.

Proozy is the place to go for great products on the internet. They want you to have the best e-tail experience possible, so take a relaxing prooz through the site and have fun shopping.

With Father's Day around the corner, a Kore Essentials belt is a must-have [giveaway]

Father's Day is just around the corner and you can't go wrong with a belt from Kore Essentials. Kore calls it a must-have gift, and I think it's a great idea. Forget the ties, people.

I recently got my hands on the Evolve buckle leather belt in brown. My old belt got so worn out, mostly in the holes, that it became raggedy and a bit of a sore sight. Kore's belts, however, don't have holes so there's no chance of wear and making holes bigger! I expect it will last much, much longer than my old belt.

Kore Essentials brown leather belt

Behold the belt of the future! The belt uses a sleek, spring-loaded caliber mechanism in the stainless steel buckle. This way, it offers a comfortable fit that snugs to your exact waist size since there aren't any holes.


Did you just have a big Thanksgiving dinner? Loosen that buckle up. The release tab under the buckle allows you to easily make adjustments. A hidden track is on the backside of the belt, and there are markings showing up to size 44.

There are some cool buckles in the shop, so check it out and browse around. You can go casual or dressy with the entire collection of belts. All of Kore Essentials' products carry a one-year warranty against any defects, or breakage under normal usage.

So who wants to win a belt?! The folks at Kore Essentials are graciously offering one of their full-grain leather belts to one Giveaway Guy reader.

Golf season is back and Nice Shot Golf Gloves are here! [giveaway]

Golf season is back, baby! Here in New England it was a bit delayed with the crazy winter we had, but the snow is gone and the weather is finally nice. My clubs have been sitting around for so long that I literally had to dust 'em off.

And with the golf season now here, that means it's time to do a gear check and see that everything's good to go for your first round. As for me, I wore out my glove last year (I probably grip my clubs too tight) and it's time for a fresh one.

This is where Nice Shot Golf Gloves come in.

I recently got my hands (or hand, really) a Signature Series glove from Nice Shot. As you'll see from the ghostly glow of my photo below, the glove is sharp and looks great. It fits perfectly to size as I'd expect it to, and there's also a ball marker snapped on to the glove if you look at the left side of my wrist.

The marker is about the size of a button - maybe even a bit smaller. Having the marker attached to my glove will actually save me a bit of time digging in my pockets looking for a coin or marker, so this feature is awesome.

The glove even includes a snap-able ball marker.

There's something unique about Nice Shot Golf Gloves, however. There are five gloves in the Signature Series, and each features the Nice Shot logo on one of the fingers. Check 'em out - there's even one with the logo on the middle finger.

I've got the Thumbs Up glove and it's fun to show it to people. You're guaranteed to get a smile at the very least by gesturing with the glove. Fun fact: the thumbs up gesture was adopted in World War II to signal "A OK" or "All good to go."

Nice Shot golf glove thumbs up

As they say on their website:
Hand gestures are an integral part of human communication. They pre-date the evolution of language and verbalization. The origins of specific hand signals are rooted in the culture and customs of various global regions and are as unique as as their respective language or dialect.

The pairing of these global icons with golf's universal acknowledgement "Nice Shot" is a fitting tribute to the conflicting elements of competition and etiquette in one of the world's most enduring games.

So who wants to win something?! The folks at Nice Shot Golf Gloves are graciously offering a glove in the design of your choice to one Giveaway Guy reader.

Dead Sea mud mask from Era Organics [giveaway]

In previous posts I mentioned I've been looking for natural and fun ways to improve my health. Feeling confident and looking great can be challenge, and I've tried various mud masks (some OK, some great).

I recently had the privilege of trying some Dead Sea mud mask from Era Organics. Customers of Era Organics report seeing a difference after just one use of the mask. Their unique formula is enhanced with organic ingredients including manuka honey, aloe vera, shea butter, and hemp oil for added healing and moisturizing power.

eraorganics.com/dead-sea-mud-mask

Did you know... the Dead Sea is the only place in the world with this particular combination of exclusive spa benefits: peculiar sun radiation and climatic conditions, enriched oxygen atmosphere, mineral-rich salt sea, thermomineral springs, and mineral-rich mud.

I'm a fan of this Dead Sea mud mask! Era Organics has two different scents (I prefer the unscented) and you don't need to add water or do any mixing. It's ready to use when you open the jar, as you'll see below.


The mud removes excess oil and dead cells from the skin's surface, and I prefer to focus my application on and around my nose where my pores are biggest. After 15 minutes and then washing away, my skin feels soft and refreshed - certainly much better than it had before.

Directions for using the mud are easy.
  1. Apply evenly to clean, dry skin. 
  2. Allow to dry for 10-20 minutes. 
  3. Rinse with warm water.
  4. Pat your face dry. 

There's other cool stuff on the site, so check it out and browse around. Era Organics provides the very best ingredients to supply your skin optimum nutrition.

So who wants to win something?! The folks at Era Organics are graciously offering a jar of Dead Sea mud mask (unscented or grapefruit mint) to one Giveaway Guy reader. They also have a code TOYRZKP6 for 30% off on Amazon.

Gluten-free banana bread from PurelyMoms.com [giveaway]

OK, this post is sure to be a hit because who doesn't like banana bread? Bread, good. Bananas, good. Banana bread... amazing. Prepare to feast your eyes (and hopefully your mouth if you win) on a gluten-free variety of the tasty treat.

Try eating gluten-free once in a while, even if it's just something small. There are many physical benefits of avoiding gluten, including:
  • Clearer thinking
  • Improved mood
  • Improved energy levels
  • Reduced upset stomach and cramping

I recently had the privilege of trying some delicious banana bread from Michelle of PurelyMoms.com and her Etsy shop, Purely Moms Gluten-Free. As she states on her profile, Michelle is a certified pastry chef turned mom blogger. Her journey of sweets led to taking familiar recipes and making them gluten-, dairy-, sugar-, or nut-free. Michelle's hope is to help others understand "real" food and how the diet can affect every area of our body and mind.

etsy.com/shop/PurelymomsGlutenFree

I'm a sucker for banana bread and love trying lots of recipes for it. This bread is so, so rich and has lots of moisture. It packs a big flavor punch and there's no doubt you'll find it yummy. It's sweet, scrumptious, and the maple glaze on top is the icing on the cake. It's the perfect dessert if you like bananas.

Full of two nut flours (almond and cashew meal) for high protein. Low in sugar and has healthy avocado oil to make a very nutrient dense bread. It will give a new name to your old recipe.

Michelle has plenty of other cool stuff in her shop, so check it out.
