I love hosting contests. They are a fun way to create “buzz” and excitement around useful products…and it’s always fun for a mama to receive new baby/mama gear for free.
There are, however, three contest rules that need to be followed. The following rules apply to all contests on Metropolitan Mama from today onward unless otherwise indicated:
1. To enter, leave a comment on the designated post according to the post guidelines. The comment must have direct relevance to the product/topic being discussed. All general comments (Examples: “I want to win,” “Me, please,” “Love it,” “Cool!,” etc.) will be disqualified. Please do your best to leave a thoughtful, humorous, insightful, or helpful comment. State how you would use the product, explain why the topic matters to you, etc.
2. Please be sure that you either post your e-mail address in the comment itself or that it is readily accessible on your Blogger profile. Often, I have to select a winner 3+ times before I can contact someone. Don’t miss out on the fun prizes by being unavailable.
3. All prizes must be claimed within 72 hours of my first attempt to contact you via e-mail. After 72 hours, your prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected.
Thanks so much! Enjoy the contests, the conversations, and the community here at Metropolitan Mama.
