Win 1 of 2 Wacom Bamboo Tablets! [Ended]



[Note: This giveaway has now officially ended.  2 Winners will be randomly selected using random.org software.  Winners will be posted on the WINNERS LIST shortly.  In the mean time please go to our giveaway page and tell us what you want to win in our next giveaway, which should be in January]. 

The season of giving is here, and to help you get in the spirit, we're giving away a brand new Wacom Bamboo Tablet each to two lucky winners!  Please be sure to read the Official Giveaway Rules below to see who can enter to win.

You can come back daily to enter for the duration of the contest (30 days).

Note: Please do not modify the tweets to take out the urls or @ or # symbols.  If these are taken out of the tweets, those entries are not valid.  When you tweet you will also need to give the url to the tweet or your entry will not be valid.  Thank you.

** N O T I C E ** I moderate this giveaway daily to remove fradulent entries.  It's surprising how many fradulent entries there are.  I check every single tweet, every follow, every like.  If I find you're just copy/pasting the same tweet in for every entry, ALL of the copies get deleted.  If you're just entering gibberish into the extra info section, those entries get deleted.  Best effort is made on my part to delete all fradulent entries so that those of you who are entering the correct way will have your fair chance.  If you notice your entries have been deleted, this is why.  Best effort is made on my part to make this a fair giveaway.  To those of you entering correctly, thank you, and I appreciate the tweets, likes, follows, comments, etc that you are giving to this site and the giveaway sponsors.  It's the followers like you, those willing to do things the right way, that are the reason I want to give awesome tablets away!  To those who just think I'm stupid and won't look to see if you actually entered correctly, think again.

GENERAL CONDITIONS 

- Administrator reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Promotion, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Administrator’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion. In such event, Administrator reserves the right to award the prizes at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment.

LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY

The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Promotion or the processing of entries; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Promotion or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the Promotion, or any part of it, for any reason, Administrator, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.

    1. Carla, I just looked and your entries are most definitely being counted. Rafflecopter counts the entries based on your log in info and ip address. Is the widget not showing the number of entries you have? Are you logging in on different computers possibly?

  26. I have been blogging about this same topic for nearly 2 years now, - what I have always believed is that it needs time to work to be able to overcome in this particular thing. But when I read your post, I was really amazed that there are many ways to go about it and acquire and even much better final results. Maybe that is why I've not really had a great number of loyal readers. I ought to have consulted your website first before starting my very own.
