    This one has a closing date of a random date picked in February. So they could close it at any time.

    Annoying when the promoter is a possible influencer with large prize. They finish the competition early and don’t announce the winner. So many promoters not announcing their winners even when challenged.

    Boohoo are the worst for “comment x emoji on as many posts as possible” couldn’t possibly be keeping track of all those entries.

    Spotted this one – picked by the promoters (baby?) son on “autoscroll”

    Generally if an Instagram comp says ‘tag as many friends as you like, each tag is an entry’ I don’t bother entering. I just assume I don’t really stand a chance and I don’t want to spam all of my Insta friends. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.

    Swan Brand are guilty of tag as many people as you want. No idea how they pick winners but on the Advents twice the winners name was on the blog before that day had even opened and those people DID go on to be announced as the winner for that day. They were questioned multiple times on the post and ignored it

    Far too many saying tag as many as possible. I don’t so I feel that it’s not being run fairly. Big brands only choosing influencers not a random winner.

    These methods have exploded lately. I don’t know about other people, but if I see “like, tag/spam your mates, save, share to story, regram, GO WILD!” I roll my eyes and don’t even bother to enter. It’s a huge turn-off.
