Get free stuff: Reward for all DG Forum members!

Post by emmzee »

So, do you like free stuff? Okay. Here's how this little sweepstakes thing is going to work:

1) Post a link in this thread to a book that you want on Amazon.com.

2) After a week or so, I'll randomly pick someone and they'll get whatever book they posted.

3) There are no catches! Um except these ones :)

Catches:
- Maximum price of $25US
- You must be registered on the board and have at least 50 non-garbage posts
- Only books, no video games, electronics, etc
- One book only per person
- Nothing with content that could be deemed obscene/offensive

Before you ask:
- This is coming out of my own pocket ... well, money I've made from dosgames.com :)
- You don't have to "do" anything to get your prize other than post an Amazon link
- You'll have to give me your address tho after you win ;)
- I'm just doing this for fun :angel:

So pick something you want and maybe you'll win :) The winner will be decided by assigning a number to each person who posts and running a random number generator.

I know I'm not exactly at 50 posts, yet, but I have a book choice: Stephen King's Black House!

I've read Thinner, and honestly I wasn't all that impressed by it.

Hey, emzee, would we be able to change our book choice, perchance, or is editing locked?

The Silmarillion. its only 11.20.

Well, technically you're not eligible for the contest ;) But sure ppl can edit their choice, right up until I close the thread sometime next week to randomly choose the winner :)

Count me in. :)

Though, not too sure what to get yet... :-/

Searched Amazon for "Science Fiction", and all I got were dozens D&D rule books. >_<

I'll keep looking.

Yes, S&H will be covered. Thats why the $25 limit is rather lower than I would have liked. (The $25 limit is WITHOUT shipping.) I am hoping no one from Antarctica or who is currently located on the Mir space station wins ;)

Nice choice btw with the edgar allan poe pack ... although that of course will not influence your chances of winning ;) :no:

just out of curiosity... the max price is $25 USD... can we choose 5 books that are $5 each?

(expecting a big spanking NO on this one, but it doesn't hurt to ask... excuse my greediness)


if yes...

Sorry ward, one item only, as specified in the original post :) Reasons why are twofold, firstly the shipping costs are higher when you order more items. (Ordering from amazon.ca won't help much since the total cost has to be over $39 to get free shipping there.) Secondly, it just makes things easier if each person picks one book. :)

JMS, good choice but since that book isn't in stock, you may want to pick a different one, otherwise you might be waiting a long time to get it. (I should have made a rule about the book has to be in stock ... hmm probably too late for that; I'll keep it in mind for next time :D )

As for drawing date ... let's say Tues April 27th since I'm going away for the wkend and may not be back until late Mon
