Congrats to Angela B. of Webster, N.Y., for winning a Bracketron SmartLantern portable battery pack in last week's giveaway.
Readers always like it when we give away gift certificates from Rakuten.com (formerly Buy.com), so this week we have yet another buying spree from the massive online retailer. And this one's just in time for Father's Day on June 15.
Rakuten.com sells pretty much anything Dad (or Mom, or you or your kid or cousin or pet) could want: consumer electronics, video games, books, movies, furniture, luggage, clothes, jewelry, and Wolverine action figures.
So what do you have to do to score a $250 blank check from the site? Our makers of rules have made a few rules, so please read carefully.

- Leave a comment below. You can leave whatever comment you want. If it's funny or insightful, it won't help you win, but we're trying to have fun here, so anything entertaining is appreciated.
- Leave only one comment. You may enter for this specific giveaway only once. If you enter more than one comment, you will be automatically disqualified.
- The winner will be chosen randomly. The winner will receive one (1) Rakuten.com gift certificate, with a retail value of $250.
