Rafflecopter Premium Account Launch & Giveaway

Introducing the Rafflecopter Premium Account

Eighteen months ago, a small group of beta testers got the very first look at Rafflecopter. Today, we’re very excited to unveil to you the newest version of Rafflecopter :)

The Highlights: What’s New & Exciting!

Managing giveaways with Rafflecopter has just gotten a lot awesome-r. To summarize these most recent updates in three bullet points, here’s the scoop:

  • Look & Feel. The design and UI of the widget has been updated. Our homepage got a facelift as well.
  • Architecture. Rafflecopter’s backend got completely rewired. Expect to see a smoother entry process, a faster site, and a better exporting system.
  • Features. New options, features, and upgrades are headed your way! Your giveaways are about to get a lot easier :)

Introducing New Features & Pricing

Universal features for all. Downloading your giveaway entries have never been easier with the new-and-improved exporting system. You’re also able to customize your giveaway timezones worldwide. And hey – the Rafflecopter Facebook app is now mobile-friendly.

Rockin’ premium upgrades. Want a little extra? You now have the ability to directly integrate into your ConstantContact, MailChimp, and AWeber email lists. We’re thrilled to offer a viral ‘refer-a-friend’ entry option. And how about a real-time analytics dashboard for all your Rafflecopter promotions?

Want the fine details? Learn about all of the new features and upgrades in our recent Rafflecopter features blog post or by checking out our pricing page.

Onwards & Upwards: What’s Next?

Rafflecopter has always been a work-in-progress since day one :) With the release of these new features, it opens up many new exciting opportunities. With this release acting as a foundation, expect to see many more improvements, new features and promotions in the near future. With that in mind, let’s kick it off!

Rafflecopter Premium Launch Giveaway

Rafflecopter Premium Launch Giveaway

Listen up because this is going to be a lot of fun! Enter to win one of two iPad minis (16GB) or one of the 25 one-month Rafflecopter Premium Account Subscriptions.

Entering is easy through the Rafflecopter widget below, but we want you to give us your best guess to the following question: how many giveaway entries do you think Rafflecopter will have processed all-time by the time the year is over? 

That means how many times was an entry in any Rafflecopter widget submitted from May 2011 all the way up to the end of 2012. We won’t know the answer to this question until January 1st, but we can tell you it’s a big number in the millions! In addition to entering and being eligible to win the sweepstakes, the entrant that guesses the closest to the total number of entries without going over will win the second Apple iPad mini.

You can also receive two additional entries by 1) signing up for our MailChimp email list or 2) by being a fan of us on Facebook. In addition, you’ll also be awarded one entry for each friend you refer who enters the giveaway using the new ‘refer-a-friend’ feature. Use the link given to you on the widget after entering the giveaway (max of 10 referrals per entrant). The first entrant chosen who has been verified will receive an iPad mini.

We’re opening this up worldwide – you can enter up until December 31st at 11:59pm MST. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email. Good luck!

UPDATED: Winners Have Been Announced!

Help us give congrats to Will K. who guessed 192,000,000 total entries. From May 2011 through the end of December 2012, Rafflecopter has processed a total of 192,613,759 entries. *whew* that’s a lot!

Also give congrats to Danny D. for being randomly selected to win the 2nd iPad mini as well as the other 25 winners of a premium account subscription listed in the widget below.

Thanks for all those that have participated – we’ll have another giveaway very soon :)

    Are you guys down? My giveaway was working fine last 2 days, but has been down for at last 3 hours. It just says loading and never loads, both on website and on FaceBook

      shoot us a message at support@rafflecopter if you’re having issues – happy to look into it! :)

  • Snow Dee

    is this international?

    • http://twitter.com/rafflecopter Rafflecopter

      you bet! :)

  • ana georgievska

    WW,yes!

  • natashaisme

    Sometimes when I enter a giveaway there are all ready over a million entries on that one giveaway… So the number has to be HUGE. Like HUGE… LOL, I am not sure I can even fathom how many entries there are. I enter a lot of giveaways and I am yet to win any…. But I keep trying. :)

  • Guest

    Can we no longer log in with facebook to enter giveaways or is this a bug?

  • http://www.callistasramblings.com/ Kathleen Garber

    I’m not sure I’m happy about the premium account. I thought the changes we wanted would eventually be implemented for everyone.

    • saveonetoday

      They need to monetize this, right? They’ve worked long and hard to make something valuable and not it’s time for them to make money off of it.

  • amber l

    None of the rafflecopters I go in to r working

  • Gloria Walshver

    I love to enter giveaways with Rafflecopters, some are easy and some are difficult.

  • Lan

    Just some suggestions for premium: Create an IP filter for those people who are able to join again and again just by deleting their cookies. Also about the blog comment, I wish there’s an option to place the comment directly on the rafflecopter script and not our own blog commments part of the page. I would want others to see what they commented about my blog and still be eligible for the raffle.

    Share This not including a url in any of the methods I tried; Link, EMail or Twitter. Known issue? We wanted to do a premium promo on Monday but this is not good

      hey Blake – can you message us at support@twitter-264897818:disqus

  • http://allthingsuf.com/ Abigail AllThingsUrbanFantasy

    Just to clarify, you have taken away the ability to use HTML in the prize area (which I used to add images) and now the only way to include images is to pay $8 a month? Seriously? One of your so called upgrades is just to make me pay for something that used to be free?

      Just to clarify…I’m not trying to be a troll…but, don’t be a douche…

    Count me in

    I really think you should include the email subscription options for the Blogger plan – it hardly seems fair since the majority of blogs have an email subscription option to only offer that to businesses and for so much of a price increase – since businesses are paying more for the white labeling anyway. I REALLY think you should consider changing this … I’d even be willing to pay a slightly higher monthly fee to have it available, seriously.

  • Dawn Doyle

    I entered as well. Great prizes! I shared via facebook (Dawn Doyle) as well as twitter (dawnmomoffour). Thanks again.

  • Chitra

    I hope to win an account. I had heard so much about Rafflecopter and when I was planning to host my first giveaway, bam! I have to shell out so much for getting email subscribers embedded. Please reconsider this. Bloggers run so many giveaways. Charge $10 per month but include email subs in it. Thanks

  • Lorinda

    Thank you for the chance…Happy New Year :)

    My guess would be that Rafflecopter would have processed 6,000,542,009 entries before the year2012 is over. I just randomly chose a number (a guess is a guess). By the way thanks so much for the chance to win 2 apple ipad minis. This would be a lovely gift for me and my husband.
