    I’m so happy to see that my entrants don’t have to register on rafflecopter. Thank you for not requiring that! I wouldn’t have used it had you required them to register on rafflecopter.

    I really enjoy entering contests using the rafflecopter vs. having to enter your email and other info over, and over, and…well you get my drift!  Today is my 1st experience with rafflecopter, twitter, swagbucks, and hunting for eggs on 
    No luck with the egg hunt and swagbucks is a little complicated to figure out where and what the codes are etc.  Just wanted to say thanks for giving me a little fun time instead  of chore time entering contests!  I’ll be seeing more of you-on twitter, and your blogs.

      Melanie, as far as swagbucks goes [i never got any eggs either, but I got over $100 in christmas gifts for FREE last yr thanks to SBS ] , search using swag bucks, at least 3 times a day.. different times.. and do polls, nos, and anything else you can. I never paid a dime, and got most of my step son’s gifts for FREE by using swagbucks and redeeming for Amazon gift cards [ first redemption in Nov]. This yr… Im wayy ahead of the game

    Ok, so my problem here is the give away I want to enter tells me to subscribe to their youtube channel. What the heck am I supposed to put into the box they want me to ‘fill in’?

  • Nancy

    Sharing classical music through stories is a great way to expose young children to composers.

  • catherine brown

    I can’t figure this thing out way to complicated to enter any give aways.

  • mary ann lane

    I have my giveaway set up to enter the peep when they “like”my page. the widget isn’t keeping a log of the entries. I just entered my own name and it worked but I’ve had several other “likes” with nothing logged in the entry log

    Giveaways kinda boost up your blog traffic and also gets you ample audiences. And Rafflecopter helps a lot.

  • Davd Williams

    How do you certify the prize and make sure it is delivered? Do you choose the winner automatically and randomly or does the creator choose the winner? Are all prizes delivered electronically?
    If it is a hard physical prize, can you ask for shipping? What about people who are non-compliment and don’t deliver?
    What about prizes over $600?
    Can you restrict prizes to countries or regions?

    • Josh @ Rafflecopter

      Hey David! Thanks for the questions. Can you shoot us an email at support (at) rafflecopter (dot) com and we’d be happy to answer your questions!
