Review: Omaha Steaks & Giveaway

I just recently tried Omaha Steaks Filet Mignons, and I have to say that I am impressed! My husband and I are pretty picky eaters and we are definitely choosy about our filet mignons. In fact, we really eat filet mignons when we want beef (we're not real fond of other types of steaks); and we even use filet when we fondue! I know, I know....

Omaha Steaks are a terrific idea for gifts this time of year, especially for the hard-to-buy-for person. There is a huge variety of products available, and I liked that the website was broken down into types of meat as well as a Gift Center. It definitely makes shopping easy. I recently signed up for their email notifications, and I am amazed by some of the Deals of the Day that they have offered in just the past week or so!

My parents have been buying gifts from Omaha Steaks for years, and they have always been very happy with the customer service and quality of the meats. My grandparents are usually the recipients of these gifts, and I can assure you that they absolutely love everything from the steaks down to the hot dogs!

I am so thrilled to announce that Omaha Steaks wants to giveaway a $50 gift certificate to one lucky tweeter as part of a holiday contest!!! That's right -- a $50 gift certificate! To enter you have to have an account with Twitter. (If you are not already a member, you can sign up here.)

Here's how it works:

1) You must follow @Omaha_steaks on twitter
2) Tweet the contest details using the hashtag #OmahaHoliday -- for example: Enter the @bookingmama giveaway for $50 Omaha Steaks Gift Certificate. Contest ends 12/22/09. #OmahaHoliday - http://tinyurl.com/yzugmut
3) Leave a comment with a valid e-mail address telling me that you completed steps 1 and 2

This contest will be open until December 22, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. ET; and I will notify the winner the following day. U.S. and Canadian addresses only so the products will be fresh; however, Omaha Steaks only ships overnight within the U.S. In addition, there are some products that can't be shipped to Canada because of trade restrictions. Good luck!

A huge thanks to Omaha Steaks for providing my family with a box of Omaha Steaks Filet Mignons.

Bummer, well I am not a Twitterer, and as much as I like steaks, I'm not going to start! For years we have received a box of various steaks every other month for a year as a gift from a business partner of my husbands. It is the best gift ever for us meat-lovers (I could totally do steak fondue!).
