"Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was a shock to come home and find the Nook Color. In fact, I was afraid to open it, even though I remembered entering to win - I just knew there was some catch, but as you know, there wasn't! It was truly a great early Christmas present and my entire family has enjoyed "playing" with it. The girls at Barnes and Noble were just as excited as we were and couldn't believe that I won it for signing up for coupons and updates from Buddig. Several family members were jealous. In addition, we love your lunch meat and it is wonderful to see a company that goes above and beyond to make loyal customers (in this case, BLC members) happy. thank you again!"
"When I was a little girl (a long, long time ago) I can remember my mother making us toasted subs using Buddig meats. The reason I remember this is because she would get a whole variety of meats (ham, pastrami, chicken, etc) and cheese that would melt, and it always was so delicious and such a treat. As my boys grew, we also had our toasted sub nights, and still do to this day. Buddig has been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. Something else I can remember is when Buddig lunch meats would go on sale, four for $1, that always meant sub nights. Does that tell my age? I was so surprised at winning the Nook! I have been wanting a reader for a long long time. I used to read a lot, planning on it again! I am very grateful to Buddig for making this Christmas so special."
"Carl Buddig products have been family favorites since my children were able to enjoy Creamed Chipped Beef - our favorite for special occasion breakfasts. In fact, my youngest, Mary Ellen, especially requested Buddig Creamed Chipped Beef for her 48th birthday brunch. This year, as in the past, our Christmas breakfast will not be the traditional ham, but, of course, Buddig Creamed Chipped Beef."
"I was very happy to open the package and check out all the goodies inside; it was like a little pre-christmas bundle of joy. The 2-day shipping was very generous. The congratulation letter depicting the reasoning behind the promotion was moving and appreciated - I went out of my way to scan it in as a PDF and e-mailed it to my close family and friends to show them the values and beliefs which Buddig stands for. I had no idea Buddig took was interested in promoting literacy and your company definitely gained the respect of the people I shared my good fortune with. As if a brand new nook color wasn't enough, I was impressed and appreciative that your marketing team went above and beyond to include the coupons for free turkey and a Barnes & Noble gift card. The little handwritten note from Sue was a great touch as well; it was sweet."
"I just want to thank Buddig and the Buddig Lunch Club for the amazing prize. The Nook Color is amazing. I really think it is great that Buddig is encouraging literacy, and deserves to be commended for it. I can't wait to use my Nook in the classroom when I begin teaching next year. Thanks again!"
