I normally do my daily sweepstakes entries (Dream Home, Travel Channel, DIY and Food) on a PC using a Google Chrome browser. Yesterday I used the MacBook pro using Safari.

On Chrome I don't get a checkbox above "submit" for the HGTV Dream Home to say that I've read the terms and conditions but I do get it with Safari. Anyone else experience this too?

Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

I am not an employee of HGTV, nor is anyone else that posts here.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Yes. Using my desktop PC w/ Internet Explorer I do not get the rules checkbox. When I enter on my iPad or phone, I DO get the rules checkbox.

I use the same PC and browser when I enter and sometimes I get the check-box, and sometimes I don't. Not sure why?

I don't see the "rules" checkbox on either Chrome or Firefox. Wondered why they were leaving that off this year. Hmmm. Looks like a browser issue.

Make one wonder what other diffeences there might be.

Hi, That same thing happened to me. The terms and condition box wasn't there even though I entered on my desktop computer like I always do.
Glad I'm not alone.

I only saw it the first time i registered. if you always use the same computer and it auto puts your data in, it does not need to ask as you have already replied.

Autofill definitely isn't working as well as it has in the past. There isn't a "remember me" button this time so I have to correct the gender, add my birthday and CATV company. Don't get me started on the full birthday issue.

Yes Sparky,

That has happened to me every time. I have to fill out everything. Only the one time, did the system not put the terms and condition box on the form. Go Figure!

Not complaining, especially if I win.

Try...
putting you cursor in the entry box,
press the down-arrow [choice list(s)],
when your choice is highlighted,
press tab to the next box.

You still have to select the radio-button for Female/Male.

Let me know how you make out!
