GIVEAWAY! Ryan's Travelite Luggage Scale

{Just one of my brother-in-law's many inventions}
NOTE: This giveaway has ended  - my apologies for those who came to this link from Oh So Savvy Mom's linky! It auto-filled an old listing and by mistake I posted it! The real giveaway for July 4 is Wow Bow Portable Pet Bowls - I have three to give away and I hope you enter - here's the link: http://applesandrubies.blogspot.com/2011/06/giveaway-acquabol-pet-waterbowls.html Again, so sorry for any confusion! - Loretta

My last post was on my fantastic-inventor-all-around-genius Brother-In-Law Ryan and his involvement in an Earth Day Recycling project.  As promised, I'm giving away one of his inventions to a lucky reader - the Travelite Luggage Scale.

Flying back from Portland, I was so pleased to thumb through the SkyMall catalog and see Ryan's luggage scale in the pages! What's so great about his invention? Let me tell you: "The EZ Weigh Indicator Light (green or red) protects against overage fees by quickly indicating if a bag is over or under the 50 lb limit..." 

...and it's got a built in LED flashlight! Find out more at www.Travelite.com

The scale has a $24.99 value. To win, be a follower or email subscriber of this blog, and share your favorite travel destination in the comments below. Get up to three more extra chances if you share this on your Blog, Facebook or Twitter! Leave a new comment for each. Good Luck! I'll draw a random winner at 12:00 noon EST on Monday, May 23. Shipping in the U.S. is on me!

  3. My favorite travel destination would be California or Florida. I love them both. We have never traveled out of the country but there are a lot of places we would love to see. I think that is so great that you have been to Spain and wow how awesome is it that your brother-in-law has invented something so cool?

  13. It's actually the Florida Keys, particularly Islamorada and Key West. I love the laid back, casual, outdoorsy lifestyle with their sidewalk cafes, open-air bars, and world-class restaurants.

  21. How incredibly cool! He is so brainy and clever! This is a great idea as we travelled to Europe with enormous bags and wore none of the clothes. Why do I always pack as if I'm having tea with the Queen? Anyway have promised myself to buy a smaller carry on for all of you. Must say that my husband who always on these health kicks may use it to weigh himself!
