Generally at a raffle you buy tickets, as many as you want, and they all go in a huge vat. Then the winner is pulled out by some cute small! Some places have multiple prizes so if you buy 10 tickets you might put 5 in the box to draw for a TV and 5 in the one by the Nook or whatever...

some ideas that are maybe more participation involved:

1. Trivia questions re: this site, bf related stuff etc...most wanted toy best deal etc.....
2. Daily questions? Who was in snow on BF? Besides best buy... who had the longest lines, per this site etc...what was the best store to shop at, what had the overall best deal?....

3. ok countdown to Christmas, who , in a day posts the BEST deal, each day between now and Christmas? ( for those of us still shopping) LOL
4. Who posted the dumbest BF question of this year? LOL yeah that is mean, huh? he-he

The raffle is a great idea, but maybe also add some fun to it also ie: above ideas, or not :oops:

Honestly, as a single mom, on super tight Christmas budget, ANYTHING, that could increase my chances of winning ANYTHING ( a flippin flashlight) would be just great

Postby mckeymse9 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 2:57 am

Need to throw out a SPECIAL THANKS to:


You both helped me so much this year with all the Wii info. Thanks so very much. I did get a great deal on the system, extra remote, and 2 games. You helped make a 7 yr old boys Christmas. He is gonna be thrilled. FYI: I did wrap EVERYTHING individually so it will look like lots under the tree, he-he sneaky Mom...

You guys rock.

God Bless and thanks so very much.

I was waiting for prizes to expire, but now the prize bin has increased to include the Kindle DX and Xbox 360 Bundle that were never claimed through the main contest. Full list of prizes will be available tomorrow.

We'll be doing the raffle, everyone will get around 10 "tickets" to put towards items. Ideally we'll have something up tomorrow and the raffle will take place Sunday night, so everything can be shipped out by Monday.

At some point (like 5 am) it's no longer late, just early :wink:

This is true, but since I am up at 4:30 a.m. I consider late past 11:00 p.m. and early 4:00 a.m. :wink:
