The Great Grass Trimmer / Edger Giveaway

Canadian TireThis is pretty cool. Canadian Tire is giving me a Father's Day gift, and they're giving a Toronto Mike reader a Father's Day gift. I told you this was pretty cool...

And we're not talking about some cheesy $20 gift. We're talking a Yardworks 20V (6Ah) / 12-in Lithium-ion Grass Trimmer / Edger. Over on the Canadian Tire website this sucker sells for $199.

I'll kick off a little contest on June 15, and I'll announce the lucky winner on Father's Day. One of you is getting this Grass Trimmer / Edger, thanks to Canadian Tire. And yes, I still miss The Canadian Tire Guy.

Mike: A gas trimmer???? Think of the environment and global warming, geez.

Anywhoo I'll enter. I have a house and lots of stuff to trim.

"We're talking a Yardworks 20V (6Ah) / 12-in Lithium-ion Grass Trimmer / Edger. "

It says GRASS trimmer not GAS Trimmer.
And I could use a new one too.

If Argie wins I will declare it rigged. You guys love each other too much.

It's definitely not a grass trimmer. It's lithium-ion powered.

The contest will not be rigged. I cannot be bought.

Now I'm confused . It says it's a Grass trimmer/edger in the cantire speil and then Mike says "It's definitely not a grass trimmer."

Toronto Mike

Oops, it's definitely not a GAS trimmer. Argie's throwing me off my game.

Nice game last night Elvis!
The cup is ours baby....(I hate it when I say these things ahead of time, but beating Montreal by 4 - I doubt it)

Nothin' like swag to bring out the interest.

Yes I'm in too. SVP

The only rule I have from Canadian Tire is that this contest will be for Canadian and American residents only, and that's just for shipping.

June 3, 2009 @ 4:26 PM


TFC is a disgrace.

Can Americans really win a Canadian Tire prize?

June 3, 2009 @ 4:36 PM

Toronto Mike

Maybe just Buffalonians.

June 3, 2009 @ 4:45 PM


ok ..cant wait

This Buffalonian will be trying. Totally better than the Nike golf polo I already got my dad...

June 3, 2009 @ 11:14 PM


ok, that's really cool

June 4, 2009 @ 8:51 AM


Well, it's a good thing I'm not working for CTC anymore then. I'm sure they'd declare employees ineligible.

the irony of you telling us you 'can't be bought' in THIS entry, brought to you by canadian tire. what a joke..

June 5, 2009 @ 7:29 PM

Jason, I sleep well at night knowing I have agreed to give away a Grass Edger on behalf of Canadian Tire.

How many of your favourite bands have sold their tunes to advertisers?

June 6, 2009 @ 10:02 AM

But I didn't say my favourite bands cant be bought, now did I?

I have no issue with the contest or the fine folks at Canadian Tire, just the irony of your statement on this of all postings...

June 6, 2009 @ 1:49 PM

Toronto Mike

Ok, ok... everything has a price. Donate money to and we'll see who wins the Edger!

Count me in. I miss the Canadian Tire guy too. Even his wife.
