Contest Info

Contest Information for Mommy Goggles:

Winners are chosen at Random, and backed up by their post content. I use a plug in from WordPress to determine winners, but all are confirmed by entry content. On each contest that is posted here at Mommy Goggles, there will be entry instructions. Below is what you will see on each giveaway post.

  • US & Canada entries only (Unless specified in each giveaway)
  • Contest ends at 11:59 pm Central Time, dates will be specified in each giveaway post.
  • If the first winner doesn’t reply to the winning email, a second will be drawn. After that, if prize(s) are not claimed, item(s) will be donated to a charity of choice. I have spent far too much time chasing down winners, so with this said, any prize(s) that are not claimed are donated to charity or school affiliation. I am not paid to run contests, nor do I work on an hourly rate, so my time is spent wisely. If you want your prize, claim it. It’s simple as that.

Entry requirements:

  • I require the above to be entered. Any entries that say ‘I want to win’, ‘cool prize’, ‘enter me’, ‘sign me up’, or something similar will be deleted. Show some effort please.

When will I receive my prize?

  • Please allow 6-8 weeks to receive your prize. If your prize is not receive by you within this 8 week time frame, I will follow up, but not before this 6-8 week time frame. You can email or Tweet me to inquire about your prize, but please give it the time frame asked.
  • I am NOT responsible for prize(s) not received. I will follow up with the company to check on your prize, but please note that I am not responsible if prize is not received. All prizes will be sent out in a timely manner, if for some reason your prize does not arrive within six weeks, please follow up with me to check on the status of your prize.

Contest drawings, notifications & releases – SCHEDULE:

  • Contests that end during the week (Monday – Friday), will end the day after the contest is scheduled to end.
  • Winners will be drawn, emailed/Twitter notified the following weekend. (Example: If a contest ends on Tuesday at 11:59pm, the contest will end the following day, winners will be drawn at random and notified during the weekend after contest close.)

Please do NOT email, tweet or comment asking if a contest is closed and/or if a winner has been drawn. I have a set weekend schedule where I work on contest winners and drawings and with our busy family & blog schedule, the weekends are the only time that contests are worked on.

The above contest schedule is new, as of June 2010. Reviews/postings are posted during the week and contests are ended and notified during the following weekend, after contest end.
