After our first giveaway, we got loads of questions about the rules of the game...about the lay of the land...about whether or not the contest was fixed. Just kidding about the last one. Actually, we did have one person ask that but their sarcasm and charm let them off the hook :)
Here's a quick recap of the rules:
- PRIZE : 1 pound of Dean's Beans whole bean coffee
- DESCRIPTION: Timore Atsabe Blend. This coffee is certified organic, fair trade, and kosher.
- TO ENTER : Leave a comment on this post (not our facebook page) telling us about your favorite way to ring in the new year. Do you like to party like it's 1999? Or watch the ball drop from your living room couch. One entry per person.
- Prize ships to the 50 states
- Contest closes January 2nd, 2012 at 9:00pm EST. The winner will be chosen by drawing a name from a hat and announced on 1/3/12 in a blog post. You must email us with your mailing address within one week of the announcement, or we'll move on to the next name. One winner per contest.
- Remember, your comment must be on the blog, not our facebook page. Good Luck!
And without further adieu, here are the greatest hits from Giveaway FAQs
How do I comment?
First, scroll down to the horizontal gray bar at the bottom of the post and click on the link that says the number of comments (i.e. 4 Comments).
Then, choose one of the options from "comment as" from the drop-down menu. If you have a google login (like Gmail or Blogger), use that. If you want to put your own name and website, choose that. If you want to be anonymous, use that....so on and so forth. Type your comment in the box and hit "publish".
Do I have to have an amazing comment to win?
No. Winners are chosen at random with the good 'ol pull-a-name-out-of-a-hat trick. You can comment with as many or few words as you chose. We just love to hear your creative minds in actions!
How do I know if I've won and how do I claim my prize?
We announce it in an upcoming blogpost that is published after the contest closes. Usually contests are open for less than 1 week. After your name is announced, you must email us by the end of the next week with your mailing address, otherwise we'll pull another name out of the hat.
Do I have to pay for shipping?
Well, it wouldn't be an honest giveaway if you had to pay for it, right?! You don't have to pay for anything. We want you to bask in your winnings!
