Free Umbrella Contest: Carrie Bradshaw in Paris…

Posted in: Contest


Carrie Bradshaw in Paris.
Carrie Bradshaw in Paris.

Note: This contest is now over. A winner is announced!

Turns out, sometimes the rain must fall in New York City as well as in Paris.  Have you seen the weather report for this week? Tough crowd.

So, what’s a Cheapo to do? Try to win a free umbrella, that’s what.

We’ve just received a hot new “Rihanna” umbrella from Totes, and are offering it to the first person to correctly answer our riddle.

All aboard!
Here’s a contest
‘cause when it rains, it pours,
a free umbrella,
we’ll mail to your door!


By now, you may have heard about the May 2010 release of Sex and the City 2. In anticipation of the film, we ask the following three-part question. During the season six finale:

1) Where in Paris did Carrie Bradshaw fall?

2) What color was her umbrella?

and (for existential bonus points)…

3) What exactly did she lose during her spill?

Good luck! Enter your answers below — and don’t forget to enter your email, so that we can notify you about your hot new umbrella!

Oh, and just in case you’re craving some Cheapo Bradshaw antics, go here.
