How to correctly enter a Rafflecopter Giveaway

Happy Monday dear readers. 

Some of you may be wondering why I am writing about using Rafflecopter today and the reason is quite simple:

 not all giveaway entrants are bloggers, so they aren't familiar with Rafflecopter. And more to the point, not all of MY giveaway entrants are using Rafflecopter correctly. 

If you are a pro at Rafflecopter, great and thank you! You make my life sublime, but for the others who may not be so sure of their entry skills, please read on. I want to make sure ALL entrants have a fair shake at winning.

The Take Away:

In order for your entry to be valid you must do what ever the mandatory entry option was. Just clicking the ENTER button isn't going to work. 

Random.org picks a random winner, but before that happens, I double check entries and manually disqualify those entrants who did not complete the mandatory entries.

I do my best to make my giveaways quick and easy to enter. For instance, my current giveaway HERE  has super easy entry options.  Follow that link and see for yourself. You may just win a 2000 flushes product and a $25.00 Walmart gift card for your effort.

I want you to have fun entering the giveaways here on My WAHM Plan. I love giving away products, it makes my day when I hear back from the winners who are always happy.

So please help me help you by entering my giveaways correctly. :-)

Still got questions? Please ask them!
