Let’s Play Fair – My Giveaway Rules Explained

January 11, 2010


I wanted to explain my giveaway rules more in detail. I hope to bring you many great giveaways. I want everyone to enjoy entering. I know the majority of you are honest with entering and understand what is being asked. To be fair to everyone, I have been closely monitoring all the entries. It has come to my attention that maybe some folks are not clear about each entry method.

Here is a detailed breakdown of each request:

Mandatory Entry (First entry)
This is required. Please READ the request carefully! Leave a comment with the information asked in the request. This must be done before all other optional additional entries will be valid. I will not accept comments like Count me in! or Enter Me!

Additional optional entries: Eligible after completing mandatory entry above: You can do any or all of the following for one entry each. Please leave a separate comment for each that you have done. These methods are totally optional.

Subscribe to my blog and verify the subscription. Current subscribers are eligible too. You can subscribe to my blog feed by email to keep current with any daily posts. If you do subscribe please verify the subscription for it to be valid. I do check the subscriptions

• Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect or Networked Blogs (see the right side bar to sign up) Already a follower, just leave a comment saying that you are a follower. This can be done by using the Google Friend Connect or Networked blogs. It is easily verified.

• Follow One 2 Try on Twitter. Current followers are eligible too, just leave a comment saying that you are a twitter follower. It is easy to follow me on twitter. It lets you get my tweets about new giveaways. I see when you follow. I follow many of you back.

• Tweet about this giveaway and leave a link to your tweet (Can tweet once daily, tweet button above). I need a link to your tweet. You can tweet once daily until the end of the giveaway, just leave each tweet status in a comment.

• Like One 2 Try on Facebook. You can find my Facebook on the sidebar.

• FOR 2 EXTRA ENTRIES – Share this giveaway on your favorite social media site, your choice (other than twitter above). Leave me the link to the location. If you use stumble, digg, Facebook, or any social media, post and you are eligible for 2 entries.

• FOR 5 EXTRA ENTRIES – Make any purchase from (sponsor). Post FIVE separate comments about your purchase. Subject to verification. Many of the products I feature are so good I know you might like to make a purchase. If you do, this allows you to have 5 more entries. Please let me know what you have purchased. This will be verified. Support the Sponsors, they are supplying the great giveaways!

One person may enter per household and IP address. To keep it fair for everyone, the limit for entries is ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD/IP address. That one person is eligible to complete all the entry methods.

Please reply to the notification emails in a timely manner. Check your Spam email folder often. I can not control how the mail servers process your incoming mail. I need a reply in 48 Hours after I sent the notification email. I usually have a time limit to get back to the sponsor after the draw. I want to get your prize to you. It baffles me how some people take the time to enter, then never reply to the win notice.

I want my giveaways to be fun, to be fair and to be exciting. I enjoy sharing chances with you to win. I know many of you have been lucky. Please follow the rules. The majority of you are. I hope having a more thorough explanation will help those that may be confused. If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will get back to you. Happy entering!
