Earn Additional Contest Entries – Christmas Giveaway


Getting Credit For Your Entries

Any additional entries you earn will be applied to all of the contests during this giveaway. To get credit for your entries you will need to email me at contest[at]vanillajoy[dot]com using the following format. Emails that do not follow this format will be deleted and your entries will not be counted.

  1. Email me from the same email address each time you report your earned entries.
  2. Include the following information in the subject line:
    1. First & Last Name, Number of Additional Entries
    2. Ex: Amanda Knight, 10
  3. In the body of the email, tell me what you did to earn your entries and give me URLs so I can check it all out.

You can send as many emails as you need to to get credit for all your points, like if you earn them at different times, but please include only newly earned entries in each email. DO NOT email me your new total, just the entries you earned since the last email. Each contest ends on a different day, so additional entries will only be counted on contests that have not already ended.

Ways to Earn Additional Entries – READ CAREFULLY

Because we want you to have a better chance to win all this great stuff, we have provided some ways that you can earn more entries. You must make a comment on the original giveaway post to enter, and then you can do the following things to earn additional entries.

  1. Blog about Vanilla Joy’s Giveaway. If you blog about Vanilla Joy’s giveaway you will earn 15 additional entries for each contest. Please include at least one link to VanillaJoy.com and one link to the product sponsor’s website.
  2. Link using keyword phrases and earn 25 additional entries per link. This is the fastest way to earn lots of entries, and you can use each phrase more than once, just not in the same post. Click here to see the phrases and URLs you must use.
  3. Put this button on your blog, either in a post or in your sidebar and earn 5 additional entries. You’ll have to save the image and then link it to vanillajoy.com yourself.


  4. Put me in your blogroll as “Vanilla Joy – Family Fun” and earn 5 additional entries for each contest. Putting me in your blogroll as “Vanilla Joy” is worth 3 additional entries. If you already have me in your blogroll, you still get the entries.
  5. Subscribe to the Vanilla Joy craft newsletter and earn 3 additional entries for each contest. The newsletter sign up form is in the left sidebar underneath the sponsors section.
  6. Stumble the following posts and earn 10 additional entries for each (a total of 30 possible extra entries). Click here to learn how to Stumble a post.

I know I won’t win because I don’t blog. I should probly get off this site. but I don’t because I love her email ideas. I also like to see what vanilla joy gives away. I think it is a wonderful thing that she is doing. So I will continue to recieve her emails. And wish. Good luck to all of you who blog. I will send this site to my friend Deena who just started a blog.
