Mini FReepathon Idea
2/9/13 | Me!!

Posted on 02/09/2013 11:52:52 AM PST by NoGrayZone

Our FReepathon. I did not have any money to give more to my favorite site. However, I did have a few gift cards, with small balances just sitting around.

I checked each and everyone of them to see how much was left. I had 4 in total (one was for .50 cents, lol).

The other 3 totaled $30.77. I was not sure if a cc charge was applied for donations, so I contacted onyx whom referred me to Jim Robinson.

Those last 3 donations from NY posted, were from me and my gift cards, sitting there collecting dust.

If any of you have gift cards sitting around, check the balance. There is a minimum of $3.00 for cc donation to FR.

Smart idea.....when you check the balances left, write down the last 4 numbers of the acct # and write down the amount left. Makes it SO much easier to process to the FReepathon.

I KNOW there are a lot of you with those gifts cards laying around collecting dust because of the small balances left.

THEY ADD UP! If only 10 FReepers had a collection of $30 seperate gift cards, that's an additional $300 bucks!

So go ahead, look in your drawers, wallets, closets, where ever you keep those cards. Look up the balance and donate them to FR!

This could be a great thing for us.....or a total bust! However, I'm willing to take that chance for my FR!!!

Get looking and collecting!!! Remember, the minimum is $3.00.

Let's hop to it! =)

How can the balance of a gift card, which is to be used at a certain merchant and not usually refundable in cash, be turned into a cash donation to Free Republic? I don’t know how it’s done.

If everyone just gave up a couple of Big Macs a month they could chip in with 120 bucks a year.

Visa, Mastercard, Amex gift cards. Store cards won’t work.

Sorry for not stating that. Thought it would be common knowledge.

If we could do it, I have $75 bucks just sitting here, unused!

If you want to bust the bank on a Freepathon, offer everyone who donates $25.00 or more a chance to win in a drawing for a brand new AR15 with 5 - 30 round magazines.

Keep it open until the end of Q1 and you might not have to have another Freepathon until Q4 of this year.

If I am correct there is no background checks or even age limits to raffle off anything that is muzzle loading.

Well, I wouldn’t say my beloved NY, lol. I do believe we now have the strictest anti-second amendment laws in the country.

Was dying to leave, even making plans to escape to SC. Then a part of me wants to stay and fight these b@stards.

Just to shove it in their face. Beside, I believe that “first shot” we all talk about will start here in NY.

I want to be apart of that...even if I die doing so.
