    Common FAQs

    What is the "Great Giveaway" Monthly Sweepstakes? This is a monthly sweepstakes for members with an address in the US. Each month a third party sweepstakes administration company selects (3) winners at random from all eligible entrants. Grand Prize and Second Prize winners get to pick a prize from their respective groups on the prize page for free no strings attached, including free shipping. Third Prize winners are sent the prize pack as described. You do have to report the winnings if they are worth more than $600 (all Grand prizes are) on your taxes. Check with your accountant or tax preparer if you win to avoid surprises. For the full list of rules, see the bottom of this page.

    What are the cutoff dates for each monthly Sweepstakes? Mailed-in entries for all non- and Free Trial Members must be postmarked by the last day of the previous month and received by the 7th of the Sweepstakes announcement month. Automatic entry will be granted to all eligible paying Members who are in active status (not past due/lapsed) at 11:59:59pm CT on the end date. For instance, for June's Sweepstakes the end date would be 11:59:59pm CT on May 31st. In addition, any mailed-in entries postmarked by May 31st and received by the 7th of June would be eligible for June's Sweepstakes.

    Why is it for US members only? Most countries have laws governing contests like this to make sure they are honest. In the US they are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission. It cost us $3,000 to have lawyers write our rules that put us in compliance with US law and we pay an annual fee to have the winner drawn at random by a third party. We have members in more than 20 countries and we could never afford to do legal compliance for all of them. In addition, many of the manufacturers do not ship outside the US, and even if they did, the shipping costs and customs charges are prohibitive. And no, we cannot offer free memberships or something else as a prize to non-US members because that is still considered a sweepstakes. Not our choice, it's the law of the land so we have no choice! But there are many many other good reasons to be a member!

    How is the winner notified? The winner gets an email from us at the email address supplied in your account details when you joined. To check which email is on file, click My Membership in the main red menu bar, then > My Settings from the drop down menu, then click the Account tab on the My Settings page. If you need us to change the email address on your account, click here to fill out the Change Email Form. We also make an announcement right there in the Pitmaster Club forum, and we clearly indicate the winner's username (if a member) and we "tag" them, or the winner's actual name (if a non-member). So be sure to check your email and watch our posts here in this Announcements > Great Giveaway Monthly Sweepstakes channel! We sometimes have winners who do not respond in time and forfeit their prize! Nearly every month one or more winners forfeit by not responding in time!
