Gain & Walmart team up to bring you a Contest!

Gain is revamping all over the place and this month sent me a bottle of their new detergent to try out. In my OCD way I didn't try it until the current bottle of Palmolive was done but that hasn't kept me from admiring the packaging!


The box within the packaging box. Staples could learn something about packaging from these folks.


 Its a Willy Wonka on Soap trip in here. See that tiny black dot under the t-shirts on the right hand side? That is a light sensor. When you open the box applause sounds. Seriously.


So what's in here you ask? 3 I HEART Gain shirts (purple, blue and green), a bottle of Gain detergent, a cd of Gain clip art and $5 Walmart gift cards to give out so two lucky readers can buy their very own bottles of Gain!

So Contest Rules:
1. Have stuff to wash. There's no point in buying Gain just to admire it.
2. Have a Walmart you can visit. Again - why have the gift card and nowhere to use it?
3. Come up with a cool idea for something else that could have made this packaging even more fun. Doves fluttering out? 1001 paper cranes? Undefrosting ice cream? This packaging is awesome and since budget doesn't seem to be an issue - what else would you stick in here?

Oh and the Gain smelled nice. More importantly it cleaned my dishes and is frequently under $1 in stores. You should try it!

Contest Ends September 30th with prizes mailed out October 1st. Two winners will receive a $5 gift card to Walmart and their very own I HEART Gain shirts to display their cleansing pride. Yay cleanliness!

The Gain product, t-shirts, bubbles and Walmart gift cards were suplied by P&G through MyBlogSpark.

Update:
Contest Winners are Miss Casey Lee and Eric. Yay you guys and your soon to be fabulously new clean dishes!

The box should be in the shower wearing a towel, holding two tickets to the thing you want to go to which turn to diamonds, while it bakes you a gourmet cake in the dream kitchen it built for you.

Fantastic.

The box should have a fold-out maid in it to wash the dishes, clothes, dusting, watch kids, cook, and I really could go on and on.

I have stuff to wash and a Walmart to visit. I think the box should come with a sample of Gain laundry detergent, because that smells really good too!

Kristen said...

I think it would be neat if when you opened up the top you could pull out a mini clothesline with little clothes hanging on it.

Yep, always have stuff to wash. Sigh.

Walmart is about 5 miles from me.

I think the box could've been about 10 times bigger with just a couple items in it. Would be hilarious to show up on my doorstep with a bottle of soap and a shirt. Haha. The postal person would be thrilled, I bet. But the box, very light.

They could add a fun sponge to make an instant, complete dishwashing kit.

Sarah said...

I didn't know that Gain made dish soap!! How cool!

I think it wold have been cool maybe to have some stickers, and a dish towel, spone and scrubber, all saying something like "Gain-- more time out of the kitchen!"

Elaine said...

Have confetti burst out!

CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog

Isn't This Wild?! said...

Sex sells. Plain and simple. Have a couple of those bubbles making googlie eyes at each other in a most provocative fashion.

Connie said...

Hi! Cool giveaway! Love the idea of this box. The only thing I could think of would be to have a cut out figure come out and hold a coupon for the product for a future purchase. Thank you for a super cool and useful giveaway! :)

i'd put a bubble blower inside so that when you opened the box, bubbles come BURSTING out!

deb said...

I have dishes to wash (way too many tonight!) and 3 Walmarts within 5 miles! Really! LOL This would be cool with a couple dishtowels and sponge to get busy using this! Oh and maybe a cool wooden dish drying rack. Of course folding type!

colors said...

I have a lot to wash ( with 4 ppl at home..) and a walmart nearby :)

It looks super-colorful, if the three shirts in 3 colors are shown separately.. and accompanied by some "I HEART Gain" badges.. I would love it..

We're the Jones' said...

i have a lot to wash and a wal mart near by. i think they could put in one of those sponges on a stick.

Kristi said...

I do have things to wash - no dishwasher and a love of cooking - and I'm near a Wal-Mart.

So. I would have had a bubblemaker - because Gain scented bubbles blowing out would be nice, some new colorful dish sponges - because I'm always going through them, and perhaps someone to do the dishes once in a while for me....

How about a magical sink that washes dishes on it's own?

I's a terrific box - a sponge would be nice. And it should, of course, be delivered by a maid.

The box is cool-maybe along with the applause something that sprayed out the gain fragrance.

The box should be equipped with wine to put a stain on the shirt, and a fold out washer machine, all the materials needed to try the product.

I think dish rags and gloves should have been included

Should have some scrubbing brushes and a hilarious 1950's Suzey Homemaker style instruction booklet. You know the kind that instructs how you make your home pleasant for the man who was sitting on his butt all day at the office while you ran around the house chasing a couple of snot nosed poopy filled diapered toddlers, cleaned, made dinner and desert and now have to cater to your man....ok don't know where that tangent came from LOL

1. Have stuff to wash: Do my 3 boys count??
2. Have a Walmart you can visit: I can think of 5 Walmarts within 15 miles from my home :-)
3. Come up with a cool idea for something else that could have made this packaging even more fun: Could they include a person to wash my dishes?? Maybe they could add some chocolate, oh wait I think that is what the $5 gift card is for!!

Audra said...

ok...late to the party, but I have Walmart a mile away and always have stuff to buy. I could rock these three shirts and wash them with the Gain to keep them bright and colorful.

Too bad there isn't a new set of colorful dish washing gloves in the box, now that is a great game...blowing up the gloves...turning them inside out....hanging them to dry. Good Times

I have dishes and a walmart near my home. It should come with a teddy bear sponge.

it'd be cute if they had a picture of a happy dog sniffing the gain soap to go with the Sniff sniff horrah slogan. And my local walmart is a nice days walk away, as soon as I finish the dishes...

Mari said...

I have too many things to wash. The walmart is conveniently close to my home.
If I could add something to the prize box it would be vouchers that I could give to my dh for "dish washing" or "laundry" that I could use when I am tired and he could do these things around the house.

Terrymac said...

Definitely have lots of things to wash! And a nearby Walmart....who doesn't these days....Walmart's are springing up everywhere!
Now, what I would really like (being recently single again!), is a very dashing well dressed man to deliver the box!.....

Thank you for this giveaway, and starting my dreaming....lol....
