Update: The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone for entering, and congrats to our winner Dee!
How’s your summer going? If you need some much-needed “me time,” or if you find yourself doing the old “Mom Sneak” (sneaking away to watch your favorite shows), we’ve got a Netflix giveaway for you: a six-month subscription to Netflix!
Here’s what inspired this post: In a recent survey, Netflix found that 97% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood, and now, three-quarters (71%) of moms admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace.
From streaming favorites like Fuller House while washing dishes, to locking the bedroom door to “finish getting ready,” a.k.a. checking out a new episode of Orange is the New Black, for moms, sneaking is the new bingeing. In fact, almost half of moms (46%) admit to sneaking their favorite shows up to three times a day, and for a variety of good reasons – from feeling like they can be a better parent by de-stressing, to feeling more connected with friends and co-workers and yes, even feeling like her “old self again.”
(And yes, this is coming to you from a mom who finished making dinner, doing dishes, and folding the laundry last night before she turned to her family and said, “Are you all good? Because I have to…check something,” and went to her room to watch “Friends From College.”)
What all this is leading up to is a fun giveaway to keep you distracted during these long summer days. We’re giving away six months of Netflix to one reader (if you’re already a subscriber, it will show up on your account as a 6-month credit.) All you have to do to enter is share your favorite Netflix sneak somewhere on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.), using the hashtag #MomSneak. Then tell us (in the comments) where you’ve shared it so we can enter you into the contest. The contest is open until midnight on July 31. Then we’ll pick a winner from among our entrants at random. Got it? Now go spend some time indulging your favorite “sneak.”
