Free Stuff Friday Sweepstakes Rules

First of all, we are a small gaming blog and not a corporation. So prizes will be things we have around the house, unless they are donated, and we will pay the lowest available shipping cost to send it to you if you win - usually within a week or so. We may take weeks off if we can't find a suitable prize, go on vacation, don't feel like it, etc. But we'll try to offer something worthwhile every week.

Entering to win a prize on Free Stuff Friday means you agree to these rules:

1. You must live in the continental United States (one of the 48 mainland states excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

2. Only one entry per individual. Entries are made by commenting on the Free Stuff Friday blog post between the time it is posted (usually about 12:01a Friday but it could be later) and 12:01a Saturday Pacific Time (whatever time Seattle is observing at the time of the sweepstakes). We reserve the right to extend the entry deadline. If you comment more than once on a Free Stuff Friday post, you will be disqualified for that week. NOTE: Unless you register with an authentication service and are marked as trusted, your posts will need to be approved before they appear. If you see the confirmation screen, your post was entered - check back later to see it on the page. If you use multiple e-mail addresses to enter and we find out, you will be banned from all future drawings.

After the cut off time passes, the number of posts that qualify will be counted and then one will be selected at random. The winner will be contacted via e-mail to request shipping information. If no e-mail is included in your comment, you will be disqualified. If the winner does not qualify to win (e.g., lives outside of the continental U.S., no e-mail address) or does not respond to the request for shipping information within 3 days, another winner may be drawn from the same group of entries until a valid winner is found.

3. Enter at your own risk. Busy Gamer News is not liable for anything. We will make a good faith attempt to provide prizes via standard U.S. mail. We are not responsible for any lost mails, delays in receipt or inability to accept delivery. If a prize is returned to us due to non-delivery, it may be recycled for a future giveaway.

We may also periodically offer Instant Win prizes. In these cases, the first qualified person to enter will win the prize. If the first person is disqualified, we'll move on to the next entrant until a valid winner is selected. You cannot win two Instant Win prizes in a row, though this does not affect your eligibility for random drawings.

These rules may be amended periodically as needed to ensure fairness or for any other reason, at our discretion.
