Still can't believe there is no specific contest page or rules for this on their site. Today's word was a bit confusing. Screen showed the word: BATR-BOAT but then the hosts went on to say the word is BATR and that it meant Boat. So up to you how you want to enter the word.

On Oct 4 I won a Dinner gc from a radio contest where you can only win from the radio station every 30 days
Well on Tuesday Oct 31 I won again from the same station $ 813 dollars
Only to be told after I won it when I gave my info that I won Oct 4 and it has not been 30 days yet to win. It was only 27 days that I won again
I thought it was longer then 30 days when I did win last but it was not
So the radio host told me somebody from the station will contact me to figure it out. I'm really hoping they will give me a break this time since it was $ 813 dollars I won but I won't count on it because rules are rules. But on the other hand they did let me play the contest and should of asked me for my info before I played the game. So when I did play I thought It has been over 30 days since I won the dinner gc I just hope since its only 4 days away when it will be over 30 days when I won the gc they will give me a pass this time and let me keep the $ 813. What do you guys think they will do? Give me a break this time or tell me I can't win untill 4 more days when I'm ok to win again? I really need the money so i hope when they call and let me know that they will let me keep it.

I have a notepad to keep track of my recent wins on each radio station to avoid the 30 day rule. The radio stations I frequent don't seem to like me constantly winning. Some have even blocked me on Twitter. Don't know what that's about. I wouldn't expect them to cut me any slack on the rules.

If you look up in the pinned threads, you’ll see a Discussion thread. This post will end up getting deleted, so I’d start the convo there if you want to chat.

Question regarding entering contests. Many contests say that if they discover you have multiple entries into the contest, you could/would be disqualified if they find out (example: maybe using a separate email address for additional entries).

My question is, if I enter the contest, AND my spouse enters the contest, we would have different email addresses but the same physical addresses...could we be disqualified and should there only be one entry per household? Or is it ok that we both enter...

Thanks!

Some contests allow more than one per household, some don’t. It’s usually specified in the rules.

Well good news, they will let me have the money. Now I have to wait 4 to 6 weeks to get it but they are letting me have it.

Has anyone won anything in the Olivieri Daily giveaway? I didn’t see any winners tagged (granted I didn’t scour each thread).

Also, any Participaction winners here? There are Weekly and monthly prizes, should be some RFD’ers.

I’ll be glad when both of these are over.

I was going to ask about Particpaction winners today too. So odd that we haven't been seeing any reported here yet.

I’m assuming Canadian Living isn’t doing their 60 day holiday giveaway this year. Or they’re behind. ;)

Also assuming ToysRUs Wish List will not be happening this year.
