Rachel Ray's Holiday Gift-Away offers reason to be thankful

In her second annual Mega Holiday Gift Away celeb cook-turned-entrepreneur Rachel Ray is increasing odds of winning by offering more presents, more time to enter and more chances to walk away with the Grand Prize. Featuring free gifts totaling $145,463, Ray's successful Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine is cranking up the heat this holiday season with daily "gift aways" from November 16 through January 27, 2010.

The Grand Prize allows two foodie fans to attend a taping of the Rachel Ray Show in New York City . However, if you don't wind up on set, the consolation prizes are pretty sweet too.

Black Friday's prize offers the chance to win $500 dollar American Express gift cards. On other dates in December, enter to win an HP mini notebook or desktop computer, golf clubs from Callaway, an Orbitz ski vacation, a culinary weekend for two at Hotel Viking in Newport, RI, a Jacuzzi hot tub or a week on a Norwegian Cruise Liner - to name a few.

In January, score a Nordic Track Incline Trainer, JCPenney gift cards, BlackBerry or a luxury Fort Lauderdale vacation at Il Lugano Suite Hotel -- and more depending on the day.

A great opportunity to fill in those items Santa forgot to stuff in your stocking.

Enter to win here, and check out the detailed, day-by-day prize package breakdown.

The sweepstakes is open to legal residents aged 18 and over and contestants are permitted to enter once per day. Winners will be selected by random drawing on Feb. 11, 2010. It's possible to win more than once. Just remember who dialed you in if you win a year's worth of Passion Growers roses or a year's supply of Organic Valley food products (Yum-O!).

In a letter to readers in the December/January issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray, Ray writes, "We're so grateful to our readers for helping our magazine grow through some of our country's hardest times. Thanks to the readers and community we've built here at Every Day, we're not only hanging in there, but doing better than ever." It's nice to hear about a company that's doing well for a change, and even better when they start handing out freebies.
