I love love love the new Beauty and the Beast movie. One of the best parts, of course, is the Beast’s library, so I wrote “Belle Would Be Enchanted by These 10 Lovely Libraries in Hotels” for USA Today 10Best.Read All Entries

Gift cards have become my go-to gifts, especially as my kids have gotten older. I give them for all kinds of occasions — some which I just make up because they’re both working now and I know an extra little treat is always welcome.
I love that I can buy gift cards to pretty much any store or restaurant while I’m doing my grocery shopping at Albertson’s.
And I really love that this month, you can win 5x the value of your airtime or select gift card you buy, up to $500, by playing Find Your Fortune at any participating Southern California Albertson’s.
Through the end of September, when you check out, you will receive a print out with a code for each airtime or select gift card you buy. To see if you’re a winner, you just have to enter that code at www.albertsonsfindyourfortune.com. You’ll know instantly if you’ve Found Your Fortune, and you’ll receive your prize direct via email.
You can play up to 5 times each day, and with 10 winners per day, you’ll want to stock up on airtime and gifts cards for everyone you know now!
It’s convenient that Albertson’s is running this contest now when so many parents are sending care packages to college students and trying to find ways to reward their younger kids for great first report cards and tests.
Since I don’t have anyone going back to school (wah!), I’m going to surprise my daughter with a Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card to help her furnish her new place and send my son an iTunes gift card so he can fill his iPod with some new songs to listen to while he’s commuting. I’ll probably throw in a Starbucks gift card for each of them — and one for myself while I’m at it — because, well, it is Pumpkin Spice season.
Hey, I just thought of a brilliant idea! I’m going to buy gift cards for myself for all the places I go to regularly (hello, Nordstrom!)! I would be spending this money anyway and now I’ll have so many chances to win!
I’m also going to stock up on gift cards now for the holidays. Unlike fruitcakes, they won’t go bad and, this way, if someone I wasn’t expecting surprises me with a present, I’ll have something ready to reciprocate! Plus, I can get my kids eight nights of Chanukah gift cards — even if I get them $5 cards each night, I get the chance to win $50 for each one!
This is ingenious!
The Find Your Fortune program ends September 30th. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win. There is a limit of 5 codes per transaction. Visit www.albertsonsfindyourfortune.com for official rules and participating stores.
I’m heading to Albertson’s now — and probably every day for the next two weeks. If you don’t hear from me, it means I won and am on my way to Bali. I’ll be buying gift cards for a bathing suit and some new luggage. Just in case.
