Prizes. Who doesn’t love to win fabulous prizes? I know I sure do! I used to love to enter every giveaway I could find. I’ve won some amazing prizes too. Sadly I don’t have as much time to enter sweeps and giveaways like I used to, but I will make time for sweeps and giveaways with awesome prizes. Such is the case with the Senokot® and Senokot-S® Tablets Overnight Relief Sweepstakes.

The Senokot® and Senokot-S® Tablets Overnight Relief Sweepstakes is a national sweepstakes promotion open to those age 18 and older. The sweepstakes is giving away over $50,000 worth of prizes! Some of the prizes you can win include a Phillips 22″ Flat Screen TV, Hyatt Hotel Gift Cards, iPod Nanos and Kindle Touches. I think they should have a prize that includes some Senokot products, because sometimes you need help with occasional constipation.

Constipation is not something that most people like to talk about, but it does happen to many people on occasion. Some more than others. Constipation can be associated with your changes in your diet and your lifestyle. Did you know that even traveling and certain medications can cause constipation too? My son’s doctor also told us that not drinking enough water can cause problems too.

No one likes to discuss being constipated with their doctor or pharmacist. It can be embarrassing, however it’s just a part of life and it happens to many people. I’m sure even your doctor and pharmacist have had to deal with constipation too. 🙂

According to a recent survey conducted by Russell Research for Purdue Products L.P. in November 2012, of 1,023 women ages 18 and older, 53% of those polled agree that occasional constipation is an embarrassing topic to talk about with friends and family, while almost half also find the topic embarrassing to discuss with physicians and other health care professionals.

The survey revealed many misconceptions about occasional constipation.  Forty-one percent of women polled think that occasional constipation is not a condition they need to worry about at their age. Although older adults are more likely to report problems with constipation than younger adults, poor diet, lack of physical activity, certain medications and dehydration can be the cause of the condition at any age.1  In addition, only one in three women knew it could be the result of surgery.2

Charles Bailey, Director of Product Management for Purdue Products L.P. says “Our goal is to make the topic of occasional constipation more mainstream so that people are more open to discussing it with their doctors or pharmacists.” That is why they are hosting such a fabulous sweepstakes. It’s to help bring awareness to the fact that constipation happens to many people and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. The sweeps also helps to provide consumers with more information about Senokot products.

Senokot Tablets are made from a natural vegetable laxative ingredient, and provide gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation. Please read full product label before use. The brand is dedicated to providing consumers with options to help relieve occasional constipation. Senokot® Tablets and Colace® Capsules have been recommended by doctors and pharmacists for more than 5 decades for gentle relief from occasional constipation. Senokot-S® Tablets provide gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation that may be associated with certain medications. Colace® Capsules are the #1 stool softener brand recommended by doctors and pharmacists. The Purdue Laxatives portfolio includes: Colace® Capsules, Peri‐Colace® Tablets, Senokot-S® Tablets, Senokot® Tablets, Senokot TO GO®, and SenokotXTRA® Tablets.

The Senokot Overnight Relief Sweepstakes was very successful last year. That is why they are bringing back the sweepstakes again this year. The only difference is that this year consumers can choose from a array of products that they can win.

When the sweepstakes is over (May 31, 2013) over $50,000 worth of prizes will have been given away. Winners will be selected randomly on a daily basis.

When you enter you can pick out the prize you want to win most. I like that you get to choose what you want to win.

You can enter as many times as you like at www.SenokotOvernightRelief.com. I just visited the website this morning to enter and today’s prize is your choice of a Keurig Brewer, $150 Hyatt Gift Card or a 52 week subscription to USA Today. You know I love my coffee so I’d pick the Keurig.

Senokot would like to give a lucky She Scribes reader one of the prizes you can win with the Senokot Overnight Relief Sweepstakes – a Kindle Touch Paperwhite 3G ($179 value)!

Kindle Touch Paperwhite 3G

I have the same Kindle Touch Paperwhite 3G that I am giving away and I LOVE IT! It’s exactly like reading a book made out of paper.

The Kindle Touch Paperwhite 3G is smaller than other Kindle devices. I love the compact size because that means it can easily slip into my purse and I can take it with me where ever I go. Because it has built in WIFI and 3G I can access new books from Amazon.com anytime, anywhere.

I also love how the screen is lit. Instead of light being shined outwards, the light on the Paperwhite shines inward, making it less of a strain on your eyes, especially at night.

It also has up to 8 weeks of battery life (depending on how much you use it). Another nifty feature is that it will tell you how much time you have left until you finish the chapter, so you know if you need to bookmark your spot or finish the chapter if you need to put the Kindle down.

Amazon has THOUSANDS of books you can download, many for a nominal price or even free (I have dozens of free books on mine and a couple I paid for). I’m looking forward to taking my new Kindle with me where ever I go this summer, whether it’s the beach, pool or just hanging out at the park.

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on April 30, 2013 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and must reply within three days or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

To enter please leave a comment on this post and tell me what steps you take to help ensure that you don’t become constipated – AND – if you plan on entering the Senokot Overnight Relief Sweepstakes?

For extra entries you can use the Rafflecopter widget (below) but you MUST complete the initial entry requirement or the additional entries won’t qualify (I do check). Extra entries are optional.
