What better way to celebrate the official launch of Albuquerque’s blog about all things cheap than by giving away free stuff??

Oh yes, we are going to reward you, cherished reader, for your commitment to cheapness by having a contest and giving shtuff away. If you want to pile on with a donation of your own, contact us as soon as possible so we can list you in the press release going out Thursday. If you know of someone who might want to get in on the action, be sure to use the “share” button to send them this post!

Here’s the list as of today:

  • $50 gift certificate to Independence Grill, courtesy of your very own ABQ on the Cheap

  • $25 gift certificate valid at Silver Owl, Glass Quill or A C Jewelers, courtesy of Matt Gassner, Wachovia Securities
  • Cool bag of Ubuntu swag, including a ton of stuff from balloons to a cap to (of course) multiple copies of Ubuntu itself — enough swag to throw a veritable Linux party!

  • Trio of books: New Mexico by Marcia Keegan; Insiders’ Guide to Fun with the Family in New Mexico; and Wines of Enchantment: A Guide to Finding and Enjoying the Wines of New Mexico; all courtesy ABQ on the Cheap (or, as we like to call it, “Cheap Central”)
