These guidelines apply to SelfishMom.com, AmyOztan.com, AmyEverAfter.com, ParentingBytes.com, and all subdomains and related sites and accounts.
If you want to enter one of Amy’s giveaways, sweepstakes, or contests, follow the instructions on the individual post. Anything Amy says on an individual post supersedes the rules stated on this page.
Winners chosen at random by Amy are chosen by whichever widget the giveaway is being run on (currently KingSumo).
Please make sure that you’ve signed into the widget correctly and given valid contact information. AmyEverAfter.com and all related sites are not responsible if you leave incorrect contact information.
If a contest post specifies that you may enter once per day, that means once per calendar day, not 24-hour period. In other words, you can enter at 11:59pm Saturday and then again at 12:01am Sunday, and then not again until Monday.
Please do not enter multiple times under different names and email addresses, and please do not have your spouse or child enter for you, and please do not enter once from your home computer and once from your work computer. While there’s no foolproof way to police this, IP addresses will be checked, and other security measures may be taken. If you are caught cheating you may be banned from future giveaways.
Needlessly vulgar or offensive entries, or entries disparaging to AmyEverAfter.com or the product being given away, or entries promoting a competing product or site, will be removed and the commenter will not be entered in the contest or giveaway, and the commenter may or may not be notified. This is at Amy’s discretion. If in doubt, err on the side of caution.
You have exactly three days (72 hours) from the time that Amy contacts you to get back to her with delivery instructions, unless noted in the specific giveaway. After that time she will give your prize to someone else, and you will regret it, because she gives away some awesome stuff.
Amy is not responsible for anything that goes wrong after you receive your prize, although she’s happy to take credit for the things that go right.
Comments made about a product may be quoted by Amy or by anyone she gives permission to, including but not limited to the companies providing prizes to use in their advertisements. The winner’s name, entry comment, and other entry info may be displayed on AmyEverAfter.com or on a website she gives permission to.
Entries that do not follow the rules set forth in the post (answering a question, etc.) will not be approved, or will be removed. If your first comment/entry is removed/not approved, subsequent comments (such as tweet links) may also be removed and will not be re-approved until a qualifying first comment is approved. If any of your entries are removed you may or may not be notified.
These rules can change at any time.
