What would you do with a thousand bucks? You could get the chance to find out if you enter the Seize the Deal contest on Facebook. If  you need ideas for spending your dough, here are some of the things the folks at our office would buy.

1. Samsung Intel® Core ™ 17 Processor with Turbo Boost Technology

Personally, I’d get a pimped out laptop that did away with all the delays I sometimes have with my current one. I love the huge TB hard drive and 8 GB RAM on this bad boy, its backlit keyboard and the 3.0 USB ports for extra fast speed that would help me get all my work done and still have time for some awesome gaming. You can find this model only at Best Buy.

2. American Standard Corner Whirlpool Tub in White

Our General Manager, Ron Bird, said that he needs a new whirlpool bath. This beauty is sold at Home Depot and fits nicely into a corner, making a perfect spot for a romantic evening for two. Boasting 10 whirlpool jets for a relaxing massage and a heater to get the temperature just right, you’re likely to resemble a shriveled prune before you want to get out of this tub.

Springfield Armory

3. Springfield XD(M) 5.25 Competition Series

Our resident gun expert, Jim Weaver, said that he’d love to get his hands on this gorgeous piece of hardware from Springfield Armory. “It would be ideal for the gun competitions I go to,” he said. Locally, Jim would buy it from P&J Guns in Nash.

Parks Diamond Jewelers

4. 1/4 Ctw Round Cut Diamond Tennis Bracelet in 10K White Gold

When I asked Mitzi Dowd, our director of sales, what she’d buy for a thousand smackers, she said “A girl never has enough clothes or jewelry.”

My wife and my mother would definitely agree, particularly my mom who has a bit of a bracelet obsession. But where to purchase that stunning bling? In Texarkana, Parks Diamond Jewelers is the premiere source for this type of thing. And every girl needs a stunning tennis bracelet, right?

 

The Wolf Gift
Knopf Publishing Group

5. Books, Books, Books

Jack Baill, one of our account representatives and a self-proclaimed bibliophile, says, “I’d use it to buy lots of books!” While I’m not sure which genre he prefers, with a grand he could buy nearly 40 volumes at Books-A-Million. Whether he wants to read the latest Anne Rice bestseller, “The Wolf Gift,” or the autobiography “American Sniper” by our country’s deadliest weapon, Navy Seal Chris Kyle, there are always new reads to buy too. So a windfall like that should keep even the fastest reader busy for nearly a year!

What would you do with $1,000? Take our survey!
