Entry Methods

Ways of entry

BE SURE TO READ THE GIVEAWAY POST RULES FIRST AS THEY ARE NOT ALWAYS THE SAME!

Make sure to leave a SEPARATE comment for EACH entry including actions that count as more than one entry!  For Example:  if you post my button on your blog, it counts as 3 entries so leave three separate comments saying something like “I have your button #1”, “I have your button #2″, and ‘I have your button #3”.  That way all entries will be counted correctly.  If they are all in one comment, it will only be counted as 1 entry comment and you don’t want to waste your time!

As stated above, MANDATORY entry must be done before extra entries are counted.  You must also be a follower or become a follower of DustinNikki Mommy of Three via Google Friend Connect (GFC is not counted as a separate entry, you just need to be a follower before entering)

It is no longer necessary to leave your email in your entry comments (that way, no one else will see your email) because when you leave your comment, you must enter your email address when leaving a comment for approval.  I am the ONLY one that will see your email and will never be shared with anyone (unless you win of course and I share it with the sponsor only).  Make sure your email address is valid though because I can’t spend the time trying to track you down if you win!

Mandatory Entry

Usually the Mandatory entry is visiting the sponsor’s website unless stated otherwise which is why it is important to read each giveaway posts rules and ways of entry.

Extra Entries

These are a One Time bonus usable per giveaway but some may be worth more than others and will be specified how many entries each action earns you.  These are always specified in the giveaway post and sometimes not all of them will be there – which is why reading the rules in each giveaway post is a must!
