Oh Nuts offer, and Interesting Posts and Articles #123

  1. An interesting marketing strategy: Oh Nuts has an offer in which you visit their website, choose the free Purim Basket (value up to $30), and post what you want as a comment on this post on parshablog. A random winner to be selected next week.

    It is clever because bloggers will post it to help out their viewers and perhaps build views. And because readers of the blog will do more than just skim over the advertisement, but will actively check out the website for what they want and then comment, and perhaps check back to see if they won.

    If you are interested, check out there web site and then comment in the comment section of this post with a link to the item you want.

    Update: To help you out, here is a direct link to the Purim baskets at Oh Nuts!

    Further Update: See the winner here.

  2. Hamodia decides to put forth a web presence. Chaptzem criticizes them for hypocrisy and a reversal of their previous position. And here is the old presence of Hamodia on the web, saying they are not planning on having a web presence.

  3. Little Green Footballs: No Fans allowed when Sweden hosts Israel in a tennis match.

  4. Overlawyered criticizing the New York Times on CPSIA.

  5. At, Obama abandons Israel in terms of Durban.

  6. Avakesh on Daas Torah and Gedolei HaDor.

I'll admit to not understanding the Oh Nuts offer. What is a person choosing from?

joshwaxman said...

Good point. I updated with a direct link to the Purim baskets there. I think that is what they mean.

Okay. Well, if I had to keep it under $30, I'd go with Black Ice or two Purim Baskets of Joy. :)

(Er, unless I could get 28 Raspberry Hamantashen by Ta'anis Esther. :P )

I'll go for the sunset basket please.

I should have said this earlier, but I think they want specifically a link to the item in question.

Thus, here is a link to Black Ice:

and here is a link to the Sunset basket:

I too am a fan of the Sunset Basket.
(In their store of course, I'm a sucker for their awesome dried fruit collection!)

I would love to get a Purim Nosher's Can, and if they would throw in a Gluten- and Nut-Free Purim Bag that would be great, too. :)
