Giveaway FAQ

by

We thought it would be the easiest to answer any of the questions you may have about how to enter our giveaways…by putting together a FAQ post.  :)  You are SOOOOO going to love this new way we run giveaways.  We sure are!!

This is a rafflecopter widget.  It’s our NEW best friend!  You will find it at the bottom of our giveaway posts.  It’s pretty nifty!  It tells you how long you have left to enter the giveaway, how many entries have been submitted, and how many ways YOU can submit {the green part}.  In order to enter, you will need to either click the blue “Log in w/Facebook” OR enter your name & email address.  Either way, the widget will collect your email address so we will be able to contact you if you are the winner.  {Don’t worry….we don’t share those with anyone!  Pinky-promise!}

Once you log in – it will look something like the image below.  You will need to complete what each line asks in order to go on to the next.  In this case, there are 23 vendors involved in the giveaway & the requirement to enter is to “like” each Facebook Fan Page.  We don’t always have liking Facebook Fan Pages as a requirement to enter, but in this case, you will need a Facebook account in order to enter.  :)

When you click on the “+1 DO IT!” button & like the Facebook Fan Page, it will look like this:

Click the green “Enter” button and that line will change to the below image:

Once you have liked all of the Vendor’s Facebook Fan Pages, the EXTRA entry will be unlocked! WHOOHOO!!

See below:

By spreading the word, you will receive TWO MORE entries to this giveaway!  Pause for a minute, open another tab up, get on Facebook, and spread the word by tagging one of the vendors AND including a link back to this giveaway.  You tag someone by typing an @ symbol before their name.  See all of the blue text below?  Those words are all tagged, which means this post will show up on THEIR Facebook Fan Pages.  :)

Some of you were telling us that your status updates weren’t showing up on our page, etc.  Make sure you check the privacy setting.  It’s located in the same place where you can delete your status.  In the upper right-hand corner, click on that arrow, and in the dropdown menu – choose PUBLIC….and it will show up on all of the pages you tagged.


Go back to the tab with the giveaway on it, type into the box below & let us know which vendors you tagged and then click the green “enter” button.

And lo and behold….you have just submitted TWO entries for that last maneuver!  Fabulous!!

The BEST news is….you can come back & enter every day!  It will make you go down the line & click “enter” on all of the FB Fan Pages in order to unlock the extra entries, BUT when you share the link to this giveaway & tag one of the vendors on Facebook…you have entered TWO more times!  More of a chance that you will get picked as the winner!

As far as HOW the winner is chosen.  Once it ends, the rafflecopter widget uses a number generator to choose the lucky winner!  The name of the winner will be displayed on the front of the widget at the bottom of the giveaway…and we will shoot off an email to that person.

NOW – get on with entering a bajillion times so YOU can win!  Best of luck!

    I’m from New Zealand loving your date night ideas and this AMAZING give away but can I win??????

    • Tara Tara says:

      Hey Karen! I am thinking this would probably be limited to the US. We could send our prize to anyone as it’s via email….but the other vendors probably wouldn’t be able to ship their products overseas. :( So sorry! xoxo

    This is not working for me. I have the new timeline, and my options are different from what you’re showing in the image. But my tags link to the vendor pages, so isn’t that good enough?

    • Tara Tara says:

      Hey Jes! I haven’t switched over to that new timeline. You can’t change your status settings? Hmmmm….well, as long as you see the vendors name turn blue {to signify the tagging} then it’s working, right? lol
