I bought two $100 Home Improvement gift cards – for reader giveaways to the best blog readers – when I was testing out the Home Improvement gift card last week.  Unfortunately, you can’t use it as a debit card with a PIN any longer, but you can use them at Home Improvement stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot!

Home Improvement Card Bluebird-010

Two $100 Home Improvement Gift Cards!

How to enter:

1.   Leave a Comment

There were some folks who were upset that I was sharing public information which was already published on another blog first and later on Flyertalk.

But I don’t see why Million Mile Secrets readers shouldn’t have a chance to get in on those deals as well!

Please leave ONE comment whether I should continue to share internet “secrets” and I’ll pick 1 commenter who wins a $100 Home Improvement gift card after the drawing closes at 9:00 pm Central Time on Saturday, August 10 (today).

2.  Tweet

Follow Million Mile Secrets on twitter, and tweet once to @MilMileSecrets about whether I should continue to share internet “secrets” or not.

Don’t forget to include the hashtag “#HIGiveaway” And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter.  I’ll have to pick a new prize winner if you don’t follow Million Mile Secrets on Twitter!

I’ll pick 1 tweeter who wins another $100 Home Improvement gift card after the drawing closes at 9:00 pm Central US Time on Saturday, August 10 (today).

Good luck!

Fine Print:  The maximum value of this giveaway is $200.  I make all the decisions regarding the giveaway and there is no appeal.  I’m not getting anything from the home improvement or office supply stores and I’m giving away $200 in gift cards.  Maximum value of this giveaway is $200.

  1. Absolutely!

  2. Keep it up. I love the fact that your readers were stuck with tons of HIGCs

  3. Absolutely that’s the name of your blog duh 😉
    You have helped many newbies find ways to spend
    Money smartly. I’m going to buy stuff regardless why not rack up a free ticket to another country? You have helped me save up for a almost free honeymoon thank you so much
    I have learned so much from you
    Haters need to stop reading and commenting its so upsetting!!

  4. I need a sink.

  5. Please continue to do so, thank you!

  6. I see nothing wrong with sharing public information. You did a great job in building such an awesome blog, Daraius! Keep up with good work!

  7. Yes, you should continue to share.

  8. I see both sides of the argument…

  9. If its a secret then it should never be posted on any site. I, for one, come here because there is so much relevant info all in one place. Keep doing what your doing, sour readers can take a hike.

  10. I agree with some of the others, we read the blog for these very reasons!

  11. Keep it up please! Let the haters keep on hating.

  12. Definitely leave more comments – everybody deserves to know!

  13. I think its awesome that you shared–I think sharing great info is good!!

  14. Keep it up! That is why we are here.

  15. Not all of us have the time to browse through all that is flyer talk. I like coming to mms and reading about different deals/tips all in one place. I think you’re fine & should continue sharing! Plus it’s your blog, do what you want!

  16. Glenda Moore

    Yes, you should definitely continue to share. Ultimately, it is our decision whether we use that information.

  17. always enough you sharing your valuable info. thanks!

  18. Absolutely!

  19. Gautam Bhimani

    I read your blog everyday. You have made amazing vacations come true for me and my loved ones. Please keep doing what you do. Thank You!

  20. Brandon Nelson

    Of course, this is the best blog out there. Please do not stop. I love to travel and I love doing so for cheap. Keep the good stuff coming, and $100 gift card wouldn’t hurt.

  21. Yes, indeed. Keep up the good work

  22. Keep posting. You are not “spoiling anything”. If some people are mad because they bought $5000 of cards and now are “stuck” that’s because THEY bought $5000 in cards.

  23. I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as TMI – “too much information.” You’re doing a great service for us by sharing all that great info/tips available. Some of us only subcribe to your site. Keep on truckin!

  24. Of course you should continue sharing secrets !
    That’s what make your blog So Good !!
    And I for one appreciate it !!

  25. Of course you should continue! Million Mile Secrets is my go-to site for all the latest, consolidated information regarding points and miles accumulation, and I very much appreciate how detailed your posts are. I look here first when searching for credit card sign-up links!

  26. There is really no such thing as a secret in the mileage community, so please continue to share!

  27. Keep on sharing!! Thats why I read your blog. If they want to keep “their” secrets, they shouldn’t post it anywhere on the WORLD WDE WEB.

  28. Yes! Please continue sharing these great tips and secrets.

  29. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your secrets!

  30. of course you should keep it up! the internet is for everyone to read. as long as you give the appropriate credit where it’s due, then i don’t see why there should be a problem. i prefer reading your blog over some other blogs. plus i like the way your blog is organized and the way you write.

  31. If you stopped, you’d have to change your name!

  32. You did absolutely nothing wrong, Daraius. Thanks for keeping us in the know!

  33. Jennifer Slusser

    Continue “giving away” all the secrets! Like I have time to search the Internet, I like one stop shopping.

  34. Keep on , keeeping on

  35. Daraius, you are best at what you do…..I don’t see a reason why not to continue…

  36. You are the Dr. Phil of free miles and points. I watch you everyday to see what I can learn.

  37. Ryan Thompson

    keep sharing the love!

  38. All bloggers get their so-called secrets from the same place: the internet. Please keep sharing!!!

  39. If the information is public, then it is not a secret. Therefor, I don’t see a problem with you sharing it. It would be like getting angry at someone for sharing the hours of operation of their favorite store with someone else. It’s posted for everyone who looks to see, so it’s hardly a breech of confidence, is it?

  40. Please keep on with the good work.

    I never really get the folks that complain about bloggers providing the information. That’s what the bloggers are for. That’s why we read the blogs. Contrary to what some might think, there is no entitlement to these folks that seem to think they should be able to use the public domain to exchange information but, that it is wrong for others to share the information. If you don’t want your little secrets shared, then keep it private. Otherwise, get a life.

  41. I read you blog everyday.. Thank you for sharing all useful information.

  42. I am glad you share this information and thank your wife for turning me on to this. By the way this is Mark from her old work, please tell her to reach out to me at the email I provided.

  43. I say keep going

  44. Publish what you want. Not everyone has time to read 40 blogs!

  45. I don’t see why MMS readers shouldn’t get in on the action when other bloggers’ readers do. Keep posting those secrets!

  46. Your blog is called “Million Mile Sectrets”, so it would only be fitting if you shared this information. Honestly, whenever I add a new blog to my RSS reader, I only do it if it is different from my other ones. I get something different on this one than I do on the others. Keep up the good work.

  47. Definitely not. These deals need to be kept going for as long as they can. Slow n steady…..

  48. Keep on posting those internet “secrets” which we all know aren’t so secretive.

  49. Continue to share! What’s out there is for all to share!

  50. Sharing is caring. Thanks for all you do.

  51. I think you can find a better balance. Don’t forget you are part of a community.

  52. Definitely keep sharing!

  53. Share. That’s the purpose of your site.

  54. Yes, you should continue to share.

  55. I love your site. Without you I’d never be able to travel to Germany this coming September almost free. Keep up the good work.

  56. Keep those secrets coming Darius. We love you.

  57. I would like to know all the secrets.

  58. doesn’t matter win or not, like your blog.

  59. Definitely share. It is the only way I can travel on my budget.

  60. Yes, keep spreading the word!

  61. Please keep sharing everything!

  62. Thank you Darius! I commend you for taking the heat for us. You could have just kept all these secrets for yourself and cashed in, but you care enough to share. Thank you for digging in the dirt for me 🙂

  63. Definitely keep sharing….

  64. Yes! Please do continue to share!!

  65. Oh yeah, I forgot to say keep doing what you’re doing. You can never please all the people all of the time anyway!

  66. Darius, keep up the great work (including sharing ALL details)!

  67. Please ignore the morons D, you are doing great and I am spreading daily about your blog.

    Message tot he morons, if you don’t like this BLOG, LEAVE!

  68. Definitely keep sharing them!

  69. You will never been able to make everybody happy. Do what feels good to you! What makes sense to you, what you belive is good for your site and your community. Me, personally, love that you post ‘secrets’, after all, isn’t that the name of your game (blog)!?
