Family Dollar “Dollar Dinners for the Holidays” Contest!

by Nicole on December 20, 2011

Family Dollar is encouraging families to celebrate food, festivity and frugality this season with the first-ever Dollar Dinners for the Holidays Contest.

With the help of cook and celebrity chef, Melissa d’Arabian, Family Dollar has launched the Dollar Dinners for the Holidays Contest  and they’re asking shoppers to submit their favorite dishes in the following categories: appetizer, entrée, side dish and dessert. You can log onto and enter your thrifty recipes for a chance to win various entertaining prizes. You must select ingredients that can be found at your local Family Dollar and submit a cost range to show off your savings.

Holiday spokesperson d’Arabian will help select the grand prize winner for Best Entrée, who will be awarded a private entertaining consultation with d’Arabian herself, along with a $500 Family Dollar gift card to put towards his or her next entertaining event.  Secondary winners for Best Appetizer, Side Dish and Dessert will each receive a fifty dollar Family Dollar gift card to help with party necessities and essential food ingredients in the New Year. Each entrant will receive exclusive coupons and the opportunity for additional savings, just by submitting their favorite family recipe.  The contest offers a forum for consumers to exchange recipes, share holiday meal tips and find affordable meal solutions at their local Family Dollar.

The grand prize winner will be announced in early 2012.
