Sweepstake Rules, regarding email addresses
I have a question about entering the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway Sweepstakes. The rules say that we can enter 1 time a day per email address, per website, totaling 2 times a day when using both websites. But I have 4 legitimate email addresses.
I am assuming I can only enter with 1 email address per day per website with a total of 2 entries a day?
Can I use all 4 of my email addresses to enter 1 time each day per website which would total 8 entries per day?
I really want to win this beautiful home, but I also want to play within the rules and the rules are not completely clear to me about this.
Welcome Phil, (avoiding the use of your last name would be best here on MB)
---this is just repetition of posts made over the years...no legal representation exists on MB. Even HGTV is light-footed on the subject here when issuing information. If you ever have been legally represented you know why.
The consensus seems to be:
One entry per person per day per entry site is legal; there are two entry sites available per day.
It's best to stick with one email address---the same email address applied to an entry--- and keep the contact information up to date on that single address. It is thought that the latest info you made about yourself is the info the HGTV staff will use to contact you.
Addenum: My personal opinion is that entering another person in addition to yourself using that person's very own email address is not legal, although folks here say they do it anyway, entering their relatives, etc.
The person represented by the email should make that action him/herself. If they were present when you made the entry for them, it would seem legal.
I appreciate your answer, that is exactly as I thought......
Only one email address per person is permitted.
