Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means are void, and Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any entries that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated program or via scripts. Entries that are determined, in the sole discretion of the Sponsor to constitute advertisements, commercial messages, or “spam” will be disqualified and deleted. Void where prohibited by law. All applicable federal, state and local laws apply. No purchase is necessary to participate in the Sweepstakes. You may enter any given Drawing one (1) time per household per day by visiting the BOB VILA website at http://www.bobvila.com and submit your name and email address using the online “Dream Dishwasher Give-Away” submission form.

Enter NOW to Win a Haiku Ceiling Fan!

Win a $1,000 Haiku ceiling fan by entering the final week of Bob Vila's End of Summer Sweepstakes—TODAY

Summer Sweepstakes

While ceiling fans come in a full array of designs from traditional to contemporary, they are not typically thought of as sleek and sophisticated.  But, there is one exception—the Haiku fan.  And, now you can enter to win your choice of Haiku ceiling fan (from Big Ass Fans) during the fourth and final week of Bob Vila’s End of Summer Sweepstakes.

ENTER BOB VILA’S END OF SUMMER SWEEPSTAKES

Starting today and every day through Monday, September 30th (11:59 a.m. EST), you can enter to win a Haiku fan, valued at $1,000, and experience for yourself the ceiling fan that exceeds expectations in looks and performance.

Designed with efficiency and aesthetics in mind, Haiku ceiling fans are smooth, sleek, and designed with advanced technology. The airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless form, giving dust nowhere to hide, and allowing the entire fan to be wiped down for a comprehensive clean. And, with the Haiku available in two materials and four finishes, you’re sure to find one that shows-off your style.

Summer Sweepstakes

But there’s more to the Haiku than good looks:

  • A patent-pending sensorless control directly measures the voltage generated in the windings, resulting in smooth operation.
  • Unlike traditional flat ceiling fan blades, Haiku’s patent-pending airfoils and overall aerodynamic profile makes it among the quietest ceiling fans in the world—at all speeds.
  • Let there be light! An LED module’s digital dimmer offers 16 increments of brightness to provide the perfect amount of light for any setting.
  • Compared to the usual three settings offered by competitors, Haiku’s advanced electronics utilize seven speeds, a timer, sleep setting (gradually stepping the speed down), and the exclusive “Whoosh” mode, which mimics the variations in natural breezes.
  • Before being confirmed as the most efficient among ENERGY STAR ceiling fans, Haiku™ had already won the prestigious international LiveEDGE award acknowledging excellence in electronic design for the global environment.
  • In a typical year, Haiku would use about 50 kWh, for a cost of around $5. In fact, Haiku occupies the entire top ten of a list of the most efficient ENERGY STAR rated ceiling fans.

So ENTER DAILY through Monday, September 30th (11:59 a.m. EST) to increase your chances of winning your very own during WEEK 4— the final week—of Bob Vila’s End of Summer Sweepstakes!

Enter NOW to Win the Gtech AirRAM Vacuum!

Enter TODAY and every day through September 23rd for your chance to win a new Gtech AirRam Vacuum Cleaner valued at $349.95!

End of Summer SweepstakesDoes anyone really enjoy vacuuming?  The chore of maneuvering the awkward machine is only made more challenging by the nuisance of its power cord. Bring an end to the annoyance by entering to win the new, cordless AirRAM vacuum from Gtech during WEEK 3 of Bob Vila’s End of Summer Sweepstakes!

 

ENTER BOB VILA’S END OF SUMMER SWEEPSTAKES

 

Starting today and every day through Monday, September 16th (11:59 a.m. EST), you can enter to win the AirRAM cordless vacuum from Gtech, valued at $349.95. And yes, you read correctly— the future of vacuuming is here, and it’s cordless.

 

Summer Sweepstakes - Gtech AirRam

Weighing in at 7.7 lbs., with 28 degree steering and a 3″ profile, the lightweight Gtech AirRAM has positioned itself as a heavyweight contender on the market. A powerful lithium ion battery lasts up to 40 minutes on a single charge (without power fading like some other cordless vacuums), and the removable battery charges easily in a normal home outlet. The AirRAM not only runs twice as long as other vacuums in its class, it’s 20 times more efficient than a wide range of corded vacuums, too.

Don’t be deceived by this formidable piece of smart technology– this vacuum won’t mar and scratch its way through your house. Soft wheels are gentle as a lamb on hardwood floors, a slim 3″ profile navigates around and under furniture, and its lifting handle allows it to be carried easily upstairs. When all is said and done, the top lifts off to reveal compact “bales” of dust and debris ready to be neatly removed and tossed into the trash.

So enter daily through Monday, September 16th (11:59 a.m. EST) to increase your chances of winning the AirRAM vacuum from Gtech. Be sure to check back next week to see our final prize during week four of the Bob Vila End of Summer Sweepstakes!

There are still several more weeks of warm weather, outdoor fun, and al fresco dining to enjoy. That’s why we teamed up with Saber grills for WEEK ONE of our four-week End of Summer Sweepstakes, to give you an opportunity to up your grilling game (and be the envy of the neighborhood) — just by entering to win!

 

ENTER BOB VILA’S END OF SUMMER SWEEPSTAKES

 

Starting today and every day through Monday, September 9th (through 11:59 a.m. EST), you can enter to win this Saber three burner, stainless steel infrared grill, valued at $1,399 (MSRP).

 

End of Summer Sweepstakes — Saber Grill

Designed by a team of outdoor cooking experts, Saber grills are manufactured to offer premium performance and efficiency at competitive price points.  But there’s more to this grill than meets the eye:

  • Three burners and a 500-square-inch cooking surface feature an advanced infrared cooking system that dispenses heat evenly across the cooking surface, and performs zonal cooking— so foods that require different cooking temperatures can be cooked side-by-side.
  • A rapid pre-heat system goes from 0-700 degrees in 10 minutes with no flare-ups— and grate-level temperature gauges allow for monitoring heat when cooking with the lid up.
  • All grills use commercial kitchen grade stainless steel— that includes the burners, grate systems, and adjustable warming racks, too.
  • Seeing green? That’s probably because Saber was awarded the Vesta Green Award for its commitment to reduce its environmental impact. Saber grills lead the pack, using 30% less gas than comparable gas grills, and emitting less carbon over their lifespan.
  • Never mind dusk— this grill boasts two halogen lights for night-time cooking, so you can cook well past sunset.
So enter daily through Monday, September 9th (11:59 a.m. EST) to increase your chances of winning a brand Saber grill.  And check back next week to see what other prizes you could win in the Bob Vila End of Summer Sweepstakes! Good luck!
