Why you should read the rules

    From a promoter’s perspective we try to keep our T&Cs as simple as possible for each giveaway and pretty constant from one giveaway to the next. For example, with our Twitter giveaways it’s generally a case of following and retweeting our pinned tweet for that giveaway for entry. At the moment, our weekly giveaways end at 10PM on a Friday evening and then we launch the next one shortly after at the weekend. This consistency lets our members & followers know what to expect. We have read loads of T&Cs from other giveaways and must say even the big promoters don’t always get it right!

    I’ve misread closing dates in the past and worked hard on an entry eg on 31st of the month when it actually closed on the 30th. Extended closing dates are a real annoyance and like you say they are sneaky enough to edit the T&C’s so it is not obvious that it’s changed.

    1. I know this is a family friendly blog, but are you familiar with the “Tinder d**k pic” principle? If a man see an attractive young lady on Tinder, but feels she will have a lot of approaches, all he has to do is NOT send her a photo of his boy bits and he is already ahead of 50% of the competition. I find this principle encouraging for creatives when there are a lot of prizes. I won’t be the best, but I might be good enough.

    2. I am constantly surprised at competitions where the blurb on the front page differs from the actual T & Cs and this for big professional companies. (I’m looking at you Visa UK). I am even more surprised that when you ask about this they don’t respond.
