Rules & Extra Entries

Basic Rules & Extra Entries

My basic rules are as follows. Keep in mind that sometimes a giveaway will differ depending on what the sponsor wants, so be sure to always read the rules within the giveaway you're entering. (Do not enter on this page, but enter on the giveaway post):
  • Leave a comment in the Official Entry Form
  • For a second optional entry: Go to the site that is sponsoring the giveaway. Choose your favorite item (though this can be different with certain giveaways so please be sure to read the rules for each giveaway). Come back to my blog and leave a comment in the entry form within the post about what you chose.
  • You must leave a way for me to contact you, or your entry won't be eligible.
  • If I'm not able to come in contact with the 1st winner (who is chosen via Random Number Generator from mathgoodies.com), a second winner will be chosen based on the most original, detailed comment.
  • You are allowed to enter all of my giveaways
  • No purchase is necessary to enter any of my giveaways
  • Any rude, or obscene comments will not go through onto my site.
  • You cannot leave several comments for extra entries, you must earn your extra entries by following the different things you can do under my Extra Entries section
  • You are responsible for knowing what is allowed to be shipped to your country. If you enter a giveaway and win something that can't be shipped to your country, your entry will be disqualified and a new winner will be chosen.
  • If you win, feel free to enter my other contests as soon as you like :)

I take the time to personally contact all of my winners, so you won't have to worry about winning and not knowing!

Please note that I moderate all my comments, so your comment won't show up until I put it through.

Extra Entries:

1 Extra Entry into all of my contests if you link to The Giveaway with the button or widget in the right column (for as long as the button/widget is up)
1 Extra Entry if you blog about the giveaway with a link back to the giveaway
1 Extra Entry for Following Us on Twitter and Tweeting about this giveaway
1 Extra Entry into this giveaway if you "Stumble" this giveaway and all my current giveaways
2 Extra Entries if you purchase something from the sponsor store during the contest

How are winners chosen? Is it a drawing or based on their comment?

Hi Simply Complicated! Winners are chosen using a random number generator from mathgoodies.com. If I can't get a hold of the first winner, then the 2nd is chosen based on their comment :)

How long do you have to wait after winning a giveaway before entering in the giveaways again?

Mayme said...

If we put the button/widget up on our blog do we need to post an extra comment on every giveaway in order to have the extra entry? Or do you have a way of tracking that?

I'm interested in entering the giveaway. Thanks for that opportunity.
