Shopping Spree Giveaway–EZ to Read and Understand Rules!

by Marinka on January 31, 2008

Scary Mommy, A Southern Fairy Tale, OHMommy and I are doing our first ever joint givevaway. One lucky reader will win gift certificates to Macy’s, DSW, Sephora, Saks and Starbucks.

Because this is my first ever giveaway, I am presenting the Rulez below in an EZ-to-Read format:

Q: How do I enter this contest?
A: By leaving a comment on each of our blogs.

Q: Do I have to leave a comment on all four blogs to enter? That’s like four comments and I’ve recently made a resolution to comment less.
A: You don’t have to comment on all four, but the more blogs you comment on, the greater your chances.

Q: Why is that? I’m confused. And scared.
A: Because this contest will run Monday, February 2, 2009 to Friday, February 6, 2009 . At the end of the contest, each of us (me, Jill, Rachel and OHMommy) will number all our comments 1 through whatever the last comment on Friday is (probably around a kazillion) and randomly pick one finalist for each of our blogs. Then we will randomly pick one winner from the four numbers. That one winner will be The Winner. (The others will be losers, or as we tell our kids, NotWinners). So, if you comment on only one blog, you lose the opportunity to be a finalist in the other blogs.

Q: I think I understand. So to maximize my chances, I should comment every day, Monday through Friday on each of the four blogs, right?
A: Yes! Good job.

Q: Can I leave more than one comment a day on one or more blogs to increase my chance and crush my competition.
A: You can leave as many comments as you want, but only the first comment that you leave each day will be entered in the drawing.

Q: What if I comment all week long and then I don’t win. Do you offer special counseling services to help get me through this difficult time.
A: No.

Q: Why do some comments say “Void where prohibited.”
A: You are starting to get on my nerves.

Q: Are you going to hold this against me now?
A: No.

Q: Did I forget to ask anything else?
A: Yes. Contest ends at 8 P.M. EST on Friday, February 6th. We will announce the winner on Saturday, February 7th.
