If your car is still buried under all the snow that’s fallen in Erie over the past few days, here’s something to help you clear it off.

The Facebook page for Valu Home Centers has an offer for a free 17-inch snow brush with scraper.

Click on the post to get a coupon for the freebie e-mailed to you. Comments posted under the offer indicate you can either print the coupon and take it to a Valu Home Centers store or show the coupon on your smart phone.

While the coupon is good through Dec. 31, it appears as if the offer to get it expires Wednesday.

With the recent rain, wind and now snow in Erie, I’ve been using a little more hairspray. So if I could get a free can, I’d be thrilled even if it wasn’t the brand I usually use.

Rave is giving away 1,000 hairspray products a day this week. It appears as if the best chance of getting one is by going to Rave’s Facebook page at 3 p.m. Eastern time, which is when the giveaway begins each day. Go to www.facebook.com/ravehairspray and then click on “Free Rave Hairspray.”

The official rules say you can enter once per 24 hours and the winners will be the first 200 eligible entrants during each 24-hour period beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern time. Winners will get a voucher for Rave Hairspray worth about $3.48, the rules say.
