Win One of Eleven Free 1-Year Subscriptions to Motor Trend from Adam’s Auto Advice

Win a Motor Trend Subscriptions!

Following the success of my Baltimore Auto Show ticket giveaway (and the marginal success of my carseat giveaway) I have decided to do another giveaway.  What am I giving away?  A total of Eleven Free 1-Year Subscriptions to Motor Trend magazine!  That is a $50 value that you can get for free!  Sounds awesome, right?

What do you need to do to win a Free Subscription?  It is as simple as 2 mouse clicks.  A “Like” on Adam’s Auto Advice Faceboook page and a follow on my Twitter feed.  That's less than 3 seconds of work for enjoying a whole year of Motor Trend.

Well, you also must leave a comment below to inform me you are interested in winning a free Motor Trend subscription with a valid email address.  Please include funny car stories, adages or maxims, or just a fun reason why you need or want a Motor Trend subscription.  Still that isn't much work to enjoy a great publication all year long like Motor Trend.

For additional chances to win make sure to Share, Tweet, ReTweet, Email, etc. this Motor Trend giveaway.  If you noticed I have Shareholic installed on this website for easy sharing.  If you want to be even more ambitious you can become a Facebook Friend, add me to your Google+ Circle, and also include Adam’s Auto Advice Google+ Page.

I think you get the idea and this is similar to my ticket giveaway to the Baltimore Auto Show.  Follow me on social media to get a chance to win, but your chances increase the more social media platforms you follow and share me on.   Good luck and I hope there will be a lot of happy people getting these Motor Trend subscriptions!

Now for the nitty gritty of the contest.  Contest ends March 28th, 2012 and winners will be announced the following day via a post on Adam's Auto Advice.  Please allow 6-8 weeks for the first issue to arrive.  This giveaway is only open to residents in the US.  Each address or household is eligible for one subscription.  Adam's Auto Advice is not affiliated with Motor Trend or it's subsidiaries.  This website and the owner and operators are responsible for issues not being delivered or other crazy things that could happen with a magazine subscription.

My New Business Cards

Business Card

Adam's Auto Advice has some new official business cards!  I can give them out at car shows, events, as well as family, friends, etc.  Basically whoever is interested in my work.

I am happy with design and how the overall look of the cards came out.  I ordered through OfficeMax, but they use Vistaprint's system. Officemax was cheaper though because Vistaprint charges a lot for shipping!  Vistaprint was $15 for 7-day shipping, while Officemax had Free Shipping for these cards.  Officemax charged more for the cards, but it came out less expensive because of the shipping.  I assume Vistaprint makes a lot of money charging ridiculous shipping prices.

I paid a little over $40 for this batch of 500, which was not a good deal at all.  While I like the image and look of the card, the paper is thin.  Like cardstock you would have bought from the store and printed at home.  The cut on some of the cards did not come out well.  I don't really feel like I got my money's worth with Vistaprint.

I did some checking around and found other websites with much better deals and quality.  A lot offer free shipping on any order and proofing.  If you are looking around for business cards or thinking you might want to get some in the future, I would recommend signing-up for emails from a couple printing websites.  You will be notified of special promotions and sales, which makes a big difference in cost.  I will use these cards up and then ordered from another website.

I would like to hear comments and suggestions from people.  What do you think of my business cards?  Do you like or dislike the design?
