The 12 Giveaways of Christmas – How to Win!

We are very pleased to announce our 2nd annual “The 12 Giveaways of Christmas!” We had so much fun with this event last year that we knew we had to do it again this holiday season. Throughout the month of December, we will be hosting 12 giveaways filled with inspiring beads, beading supplies, tools, and other goodies. It was an absolute delight putting theses giveaways together—we hope you find them as inspiring as we did.

Each giveaway is valued at a minimum of $50 and many are worth much more than that. We will be revealing the details of each prize on the day the giveaway starts in the form of a post on this blog and an email announcement to our newsletter subscribers. (Not on the list? Sign up now using the form in our sidebar and get a $5 coupon!)

To enter each giveaway, simply leave a comment on the giveaway’s blog post. The duration of the giveaway and your time to enter will be clearly listed in the post. When the giveaway ends, we will not allow further comments, we will mark the post as “This Giveaway is Now CLOSED”, and we will draw a winner at random.

There will sometimes be several giveaways active at the same time. To help you keep track of all the happenings, a schedule is below as well as on a special page at Beadaholique (complete with hints as to what the giveaway is). Please note, each giveaway will start at 12AM ET and end at 7PM ET on the dates listed.  For those on Pacific Time, this is actually 9PM PT the date before, ending at 4PM PT.

To enter a giveaway, leave a comment on the giveaway’s blog post. You can comment on as many giveaways as you like, but you can only win once. Please only comment once per individual giveaway. Multiple comments by the same person on the same giveaway will result in that person being disqualified for that giveaway.

The duration during which comments (entries) for each contest will be accepted will vary and will be stated for each contest individually. For instance, there might be a longer comment period for a giveaway started on a Thursday vs. a Tuesday.

Winner for each giveaway will be drawn at random.

As an added bonus this year, there will be a 24-hour flash sale launched with each giveaway!  All details will be revealed on the dates listed above.

IMPORTANT: When entering, please do not comment anonymously; we must have a way to notify the winner. If you comment using your Facebook profile, make sure that your privacy settings will allow us to contact you.

We will send a notification email and/or Facebook message (when applicable) to the winner. Winner must respond within 2 business days or a new winner will be randomly selected.

We are sorry, but we are unable to ship prizes to addresses in the Middle East or Africa (with the exception of Egypt and South Africa).
