I just missed a DHL delivery, but all I can determine is that it was shipped from Atlanta, GA yesterday. Did anyone else get a DHL delivery or notice today?

I missed a DHL delivery from Atlanta, GA as well today! I'm not too sure what it is.

The only prize that I'm waiting for is a $100 Mastercard from the July SDM contest. Did you win on that one too?

Did you get anything? I haven't. Contest ends at the end of the month and it doesn't look hopeful that I will get a pin.
Nope :( - first time I used lined paper so not sure if it mattered. Tried it a second time with plain white mid-July and nothing. Ugh so annoyed cus wasted stamps.

I just sent the one in on plain paper. I guess they really don't want a no purchase entry to win.

Anyone else notice that Canadian Goodreads Giveaways have completely dropped off? There has been nothing new really listed in almost a month. I have to admit I'm a little bummed.. I really enjoyed entering and the little thrill of winning new books :*(
I noticed that too..I won 1 book in the beginning of June and never received that. It use to take hours to fill out tons of books..now its no time at all.

Thanks. I'm guessing that's what the DHL missed delivery was then. They probably use different services in different areas. I'm in Toronto. Where are you?

I just checked my spreadsheets from the last two years when I started, and I’ve entered about 150 less contests this year. Is it just me? Have I slowed down or have the contests?

Just wanted to mention, for those entering contests daily. It's worth it to look into the "Others" tab for contests, and bookmark those contests. Some are daily, some aren't but I usually find there is 1, 2 or more contests that you can play daily that you'd miss if you didn't look in that tab once in a while and bookmark. Good luck!

Sad. I'm glad I didn't sen in more than one request. I would email the company and complain but right in their rules it states you get a code while supplies last, so they probably would just tell me they ran out even though I sent it in at the beginning.

Unlimited Entry Contests - I'm curious to find out how many people enter unlimited entry contests. They seem so bizarre, and I don't really understand them. I recently entered one because I really wanted the prize, but wow - it took a LOT of time. I didn't win either :(

Just curious what other people think of them, and if they enter. And how many times do you enter? Hundreds? Thousands? Tens of thousands?
