GottaDeal.com Summer Gift Card Giveaway - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!


Recommended Posts

GottaDeal.com Summer Gift Card Giveaway!

Introducing the GottaDeal.com Summer Gift Card Giveaway! We're giving away hundreds of dollars in gift cards and all you have to do to be eligible to win is to post deals here on the forum - it's that easy!

Over the next couple of months, we are going to award giveaway entries to forum members who post qualifying* deals in the Online Hot Deals forum. You can earn a maximum of 5 entries per day - one for each qualifying* deal you post. See below for details about what makes a qualifying deal.

At the end of the contest period, we will randomly select six (6) winners from all the entries earned during the duration of the contest period. Each winner will receive a $50 gift card to the partner retailer of your choice! These are the same retailers that earn you entries when you post deals from them.


  • Promotion period begins on May 4, 2009 at 12:00am Eastern Time and ends on July 19, 2009 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
  • All registered GottaDeal.com forum members are eligible to participate in this promotion, including temporary and permanent moderators.
  • Members found to have created multiple forum accounts for the purposes of accumulating additional entries will be disqualified.
  • You will receive one drawing entry for each qualifying* deal thread posted in the Online Hot Deals forum during the contest period.
  • List of partner stores may change during the contest. Deals will count if the store is on the list when the deal is posted.
  • Only your first five qualifying* deal threads will earn you entries each day. Each daily period starts at 12:00am and ends at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
  • Prize winners will be randomly selected no later than July 21, 2009 from all entries earned during the promotion period.
  • Limit one prize per forum member. Once someone has been chosen as a winner, their remaining entries will be removed from the drawing.
  • Winners will be contacted via private message and/or e-mail to claim their prize. If a prize is not claimed within 14 days, it will be forfeited.


In order for a deal thread to qualify for an entry for this promotion, it must satisfy ALL of the following criteria:

1. The thread's title must include the name of the retailer the deal is for.
2. The post must contain a link, even if it's just a link to the retailer's home page.
3. The deal must be from one of our partner retailers (see complete list below).
4. The deal must must be unique and not be a repost of a recently posted deal.

We reserve the right to disqualify any deal for any reason. Besides these mandatory criteria, we also ask that you be as descriptive as possible in your thread title. Where possible, include an image in your post. If there is a specific method to get the deal, provide step-by-step instructions. If a coupon code is needed, be sure to include the code in your post. Please do not directly copy and paste deals from other sites - you may "borrow" the deal, but type the title and post in your own words. Directly copied posts may be disqualified.


  • Please search before posting a deal. Re-posted deals will be deleted.
  • Make sure your deal is a legit deal and not just "filler" to earn an entry.
  • Check the list of partner retailers - some "big" stores are not eligible.
  • List of qualifying retailers may change at any time - keep checking back.
  • Please take the time to read this entire post - it will save you time.
  • Combine deals if possible. Similar deals from same store may be merged.
  • Avoid using ALL CAPS in your posts and include the $ when posting prices.

Also, as an additional incentive to post deals and to reward those of you who stick around all year (and not just for Black Friday season), for the next 2 giveaways (this one and the next), each day you post the maximum 5 qualifying deals, you'll also earn a bonus entry into our big holiday giveaway which will start in September/October.
