Looks like I hopped on Twitter at just the right time. I found a fun tweet from Lowe’s! Right now they’re giving us the opportunity to earn a $10 Lowe’s gift card just for tweeting, or planting a tweet. It’s kinda fun! This is all very self explanatory, but here’s what you do:
- Go to the Plant A Tweet site.
- Click on the green button on top that says ‘Plant Your Tweet’.
- Build your tweet using symbols that resemble pieces of a flower (fun!).
- Hit ‘Compose Tweet’.
- Then you need to authorize the app to post and track your tweet and retweets. You can remove it later.
- Sign into your Twitter account and follow the prompts.
- You’ll be taken back to the Plant A Tweet page to enter your mailing address, then click ‘Plant Your Tweet.’
- You’ll be given some options to earn extra points, like by following Lowe’s on Twitter.
The first 10,000 people to collect 50 points by May 29 will get a $10 Lowe’s gift card. There are about 9500 left as I’m writing.
Here’s how you can win:
