Contest Announcements

As you're probably aware, some of the members have been kicking around the idea of a new stickied thread for "Contest Announcements". We brought the proposal to oranr and he thought it was a good idea. So here we go:

What this thread is for:

Contest announcements including, but not necessarily limited to:
  • Contest is "Now Live" (i.e. the contest post went up before the contest was active)
  • Last Day extended
  • Changes to contest rules (it happens - not often, but it does)
  • Corrections to posting errors (for example someone has posted a contest marked as "once" but it's actually a "daily" and we want to get the word out to those who have already entered)
What this thread is not for: In order to keep this thread as topical as possible, please refrain from the following:
  • Posting announcement-related questions or comments that would be better discussed within the specific threads themselves
  • Posting "thanks", etc.
  • Posting "Willows", "Christinas", "Wombats", "Mole Rats", "Chuck Norrises" or the like
  • Posting off-topic remarks
I hope this helps.

wonderbread changed their rules on the facebook contest today

http://forums.redflagdeals.com/wonder-b ... st14619623

after a few emails to wonderbread - they changed their rules today.

" LIMIT: One entry per person. More than one entry from a single person or e-mail account/address will void all entries from that person or e-mail address."

so I updated the thread to once from daily

In case you've entered already and you missed the change in the posting, I had the following contest listed as "Once" when it should be "Other".

Not a rules change, just sloppiness when I posted it.

[Other] Heinz - "57 Days to Summer" (ends 1/Jul/2012-10pm CDT, BC/AB/SK/MB only, UPC)


Apologies for the inconvenience.

Clarification received from Safeway (it's not explicitly stated in the rules, one way or another):

Contest is "daily" not "once":

Safeway - "What Would You Do w/ 100K AirMiles?" (ends 3/May/12, BC/AB/SK/MB/N.ON, FB)

The Canadian Living "Win a Black and Decker paint sprayer" contest that I posted yesterday was released in error by the sponsor (even though the rules stated a start date of April 25, 2012).

I received this email response from them a short while ago:
I must apologize. The Black and Decker contest was accidentally set online early. It is meant to run in conjunction with our July issue and has been taken down until then. I will adjust the rules to reflect that. This month's Design Dilemma contest is Grace Bonney's book Design Sponge.

Thank you for your vigilance and good luck in the contest!

So the contest should re-appear in a couple of months. Until then, I've asked a mod to take down the current contest posting.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Update - follow-up email:
The entries that have been submitted will carry over to when it re-launches.

Thanks,
Victoria
