Giveaway: Gilt City Gift Cards

Gilt Groupe took the fashion world by storm offering designer styles at sample sales prices.  (I don’t know a single woman who isn’t glued to her computer at noon each day to check out the new sales.)  And now they’re taking on the world of discount group sales offering exclusive, luxury experiences at Hill Staffer-friendly prices.  

Gilt City offers deals in D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.  From yoga classes to four-star restaurants to luxury spas, you can experience the best these cities have to offer for less.

A few weeks ago, I entered a blogger competition for Gilt City to celebrate their D.C. launch.  The prize: A $50 gift card and a $250 gift card to Gilt City.  And now, I’m going to give those cards away to my readers and Twitter followers.  So here are the rules, read carefully:

Since there are two gift cards, there will be two giveaways.  One in the comments section of this post, and one on my Twitter page.   You can enter to win both, but you can only win one.  So, basically, you can double your chances of winning, but you can only win one of the prizes.  Here’s how to enter:

For the $250 Card:  In the comments section, list one place in D.C. (or the city from the list above that you love most) that you’d like to see as a Gilt City deal.  What are the cities hottest restaurants, bars, attractions, events, etc.?

And don’t forget to put your email address in the login field when you comment.  If I don’t have your address, I can’t contact you, so you can’t win.  

For the $50 Card:  Step one, follow me on Twitter, if you’re not already.  Step two, leave a comment listing your favorite restaurant, hotel, attraction or event in the city of your choice from the list above.  

Entries should look like this: @CapHillStyle Washington, D.C.-Rasika #CHSgiveaway.  You have to remember to use the hash tag and mention my handle so your entry doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.

So get out there and enter for your chance to win.  And if you haven’t joined Gilt Groupe or Gilt City yet, what are you waiting for? Join the Noon Crew, today.

PS: The contest closes Midnight Monday.  Winner will be announced Tuesday.

    Rogue 24! The brand new 24-course restaurant hidden in Blagden Alley. I love the concept but at $175 per person (including pairing) it's a bit out of reach.

  31. KRF hearts Philly says:

    Philadelphia is a perfect weekend destination for those of us in D.C. who are in need of an escape on a budget or in my case, a visit home. Whether you drive, bus, or take the train you will arrive in a city filled with brotherly love for food, art, sports, shopping, entertainment, and museums. Often folks associate Philly food with cheesesteaks and soft pretzels. While both are delightful treats there is an array of eclectic food that will surely satisfy your CHS taste buds! The restaurant I would recommend as a Guilt City deal is one that is on my list to indulge in post baby. It is called The Farmers Cabinet (https://www.thefarmerscabinet.com) and features some of my favorite things: great drinks (cocktails or beer), fantastic cheese plates, and other good eats. Enjoy!

    This one may be a bit outside of the box but I really enjoy District 9, which is a traditionally gay gentleman's bar, but its a great atmosphere even for a straight woman. The dirnks are well mixed and the atmosphere is great — the perfect place to meet up with my gay boyfriend :-).

    September 1, 2011/Reply
  37. TA in DC says:

    Definitely The Caucus Room for food. Being raised on a farm in the midwest, I can attest to the quality of their steak (especially the USDA Prime cuts, absolutely mouth watering). But the price is a little much for Hill Staffers. If Guilt City had a deal for them, it would be a great place to go pre-theater or on a nice date!

    As for clothing, I'd love to see Guilt City do a deal for Lost Boys or Hugh & Crye. They carry great brands, and although a little pricey, it's a good excuse to drag the boyfriend/significant other out to refresh his wardrobe.

    As far as luxury I can’t afford but would love to try, Bourbon Steak at the 4 seasons and The Source at the Newseum. But I also would love to see the restaurants that aren’t budget busters but that I still don’t get to go to as much as I would like because it does add up! I would buy any deal to Belga Café, Lincoln Restaurant, and Ray’s the Steaks in a heartbeat! Lastly – Jack Rose just opened and I hear they have an awesome bourbon/scotch collection – would love to try all the top shelf stuff they have! Thanks for doing this! Catherine G

    I would love a deal at Estadio that comes with a reservation or a reserved “Gilt only” time block–it's impossible to get a seat there! (Although they do serve a good, and less packed, brunch.) Elsewhere, how cool would it be if they had a Gilt party at the Newseum or the Portrait Gallery?!
