How are winners are contacted through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter? Do we have to check back? Are we sent an email or a DM?
This was my reply with regards to Facebook:
If it’s a Facebook Timeline contest, the sponsor will either share your name as a winner in another post, or tag you in a comment on the original post. That means you either have to remember to go back to their page, get notifications, always check your notifications (which you should be doing anyway!) or have awesome sweeping buddies that will let you know they saw your name. The notification icon is a little world/globe.
If it’s just a contest held on Facebook, similar to an online contest, where you fill out a form, you will either get a ‘standard’ email notification or a phone call. […]
Thanks a lot for the info, but I’d like to know how to be a contestor for real. The movie I recently watched on Netflix “The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio” inspired me to try this avenue of getting things I can’t otherwise buy or achieve.
If you have any info on contests that are currently running, OR on where to look for these rather than giving myself a headache on Google search, please let me know! Any other advice, tips, tricks, etc you have to share, please do so! Thank you.
It’s so funny you bring this up Carolyn because I also won a chair from Skittles in their match game in 2013. I won the white chair. You had to randomly select three pictures and I did. It was the first big prize I ever won. I was so surprised when they three pics matched THEN suddenly the game went nuts and logged me out! I contacted Skittles about it right away hoping that me matching the three pictures was registered within their game. They treated me very poorly and talked to me very condescendingly and with much suspicion. I asked them to look into it. They never did. I will never buy Skittles again in my life and tell everyone I meet ever how Skittles owes me a chair which I won fair and square!!! 😀
But I still gave you a like on your page. I hope you get your chair at least.
