Contest update: The winner of a $50 Sears gift card is…

Thank you to everyone who participated in our $50 Sears gift card giveaway!

We received 61 entries from travelers looking to score travel gear with the gift card. The competition was stiff, but one lucky winner came out ahead in our random drawing.

And the winner is…

Jeremy B. of Budget Travel Adventures!

Jeremy is a writer, dad and all-around nice guy based in Sacramento, California. He’s the founder of Budget Travel Adventures, a website for passionate, budget-savvy travelers.

Jeremy earned extra entries in our contest with frequent RTs on Twitter! You can follow him at @budgettravelsac.

What will Jeremy get with the $50 Sears gift card?

The winner has big plans for the prize:

“With the gift card, I am going to buy a travel first aid kit which I can use traveling close to home or abroad, since I have kids. With the rest of the card, I might buy a hammock so I can relax at home even when not traveling!”

What a great dad!
