Hi Guys! I am new to this contest entering business but I was wondering if some previous winners or vets could answer me this…
When I apply for a contest I never ever check the box that indicates I would like to receive “weekly offers” or newsletters or the like…. Do you find it makes a difference when winners are chosen?
Thanks!March 13, 2012 at 8:16 pm #29797
Great question, Sarah! I’ll be curious what people have to say about that. It shouldn’t matter whether you check the box or not, but I think it’s human nature to suspect that your odds may not be quite as good if you don’t sign up.March 17, 2012 at 12:08 am #29981
Thanks for the answer… I am going to continue not checking the box to sign up for everything they have ever written and hopefully it works out!March 19, 2012 at 11:38 am #30069
I always opt out of those also if given the option. I doubt it makes a difference but you never know.June 24, 2012 at 9:21 pm #34142
My junkmail is at a maximum because I ALWAYS check the box. But the benefit of this is that I always get notifications emailed to me of new contests.June 24, 2012 at 9:58 pm #34143
I check it sometimes if it really interests me & I’ve won small contests (nothing BIG.) My husband always checks NO/not interested & he has won more than I have!?
