Giveaway Rules

on May 11, 2016 @ 03:50 pm

Hi all,

I am planning on hosting a giveaway on my blog, and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the rules for a giveaway? Should I make it only in Canada? Can I include the US? (The company that is generously giving me the products for the giveaway is located in the US) And if it is only in Canada, can I include Quebec?

I am very new to this, so any insight from anyone who have successful run a giveaway on their blog, or know the legal rules around giveaways would be very useful!!

For smaller blog giveaways I usually just do worldwide, but then I usually provide the stuff from my own pocket, when a company is involved it might be more complex...

There are some ladies on here with crazy successful blogs, hope they can help!

You could try visiting The Contest Queen blog, she has a lot of useful information for running a blog giveaway. You could also contact her for more information.

You should ask the rep of the company you are hosting the giveaway for what their shipping restrictions are. Never decide for them, it may be the last giveaway you host.

You can check my site for ideas, click the free entry to see the rest of the options. I can just null your entry later.

The last 3 blog posts are giveaways.

If, as you stated the company is in the USA I would definitely include them and because of so many regulations, omit Quebec.

The company is giving me all of the products: some for me and some for the giveaway. I guess they want me to take pictures of all the things you can win before shipping it to the winner?

I was thinking that they would like me to include the USA.

I will let you chicks know when I get the giveaway up and running!

Thanks! I may not be able to enter if Quebec isn't eligible, but good luck!
