Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

To celebrate the Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows, we're giving away one $250 gift card to buy whatever you want at the department store. As you might have guessed, the windows this year star the infamous Saks Yeti, who lives on top of the store's roof and makes snow in the winter time. When the windows are revealed on Monday, passerby who haven't yet read this book will get a glimpse into the yeti's backstory, from his time as an under-appreciated snowmaker in Siberia to his starring role today.

Update: The contest is now closed, stay tuned for a winner!

Want to win the gift card? Head over to this photo on our Instagram and give it your best caption. To be applicable for the grand prize, follow these two simple steps:

1. Follow both @rackedny and @s5a on Instagram.
2. Comment on this photo with your best caption and the hashtag #SaksYeti

We'll end the contest at 12:30pm on Monday. Once the winner with the best caption has been selected, we'll post another photo on Instagram and Racked NY with your handle. We'll include an email address in the post, and you'll have 24 hours to contact us to claim your sweet, sweet prize.
