tweetathons  are just a waste of time , but have heard of some crazy prizes coming out of it !

anyways ,

its kinda funny but ..

when i noticed that the prize for this one says" a holiday package for a couple"

how do you define a holiday package? well i sure hope this one includes flightsTongue out

cause once i won a contest where i got a chance to see Britney spears live in concert in the US.(the time when she was sane)

All they gave was the 500$concert pass Tongue out .

how do you expect me to get there?

Anita

Ranjith, Yes Tweetathons do increase the # of Followers.

Some do unfollow seeing the Tweet deluge; however many join in!

Active Twitter presence with Tweets 24/7 can increase the Followers Count too! As can being Retweeted/Mentioned by a Celebrity!

I dont even know how to post a tweet using those hashtags. Tried once or twice but it felt like am not good at it :( :P

Nandini Deka

i've seen some people tweet throughout the day to win...dont have so much stamina

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

ND Even if you tweet one good tweet, you can win a prize. See the WeChat contest. While mentioning [ some of ] the winners names, the tweet which won them the prize was also mentioned. Laughing Or ND, use a tweet scheduler Tongue out

The most difficult thing for me on twitter is the 140 character limit! Foot in mouth

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
8 years ago

oh no..the one who win perhaps tweets hundreds of time before one of their tweets get lucky....i cant do all thatCryCool

Anita
from Bhubaneswar
8 years ago

Afshan, just give the hashtag, mention the brand's Twitter handle, and start tweeting.

Keep your tweet interesting- put your ideas in 140 characters (as hashtag & handle also use up some characters, so still lesser characters left to tweet with!) Must warn you-> Twitter is pretty addictive!

Renie  / Indiblogger team 

Can some one please please inform if this date will get extended ? if Yes I can wait and leisurely write rather than hurrying and finishing it off Sealed

 

PLEASE PLEASE LET ME Know

 

Also for this contest can we use images from the net giving courtesy to the image?Awaiting your reply 

Avadhoot

Logic is simple: A contest is extended when there are not ( or it is perceived that there will not) enough entries till the last day.

In wechat, apollo contests- deadline was not extended as they had enough entries while shoppers stop,sunsilk 2, tresemme,s2s etc were extended. Cool

This is why they can't tell you.Wink

Ranjith

Contests also get extended if there are weddings Innocent

Anita
from Bhubaneswar

Contests also get extended on demand/request of the majority on the Forum!Smile

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

Yes! Cool

Any more reasons? Tongue out

Anita
from Bhubaneswar
8 years ago

Ranjith, I thought & came up with this unusual reason-

Contests can also get automatically extended if everyone's Internet or the IndiBlogger.in site doesn't work on the last date- when, perhaps, many like me, do their last-minute-submissions! Smile

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

Yes! Tongue out

Everyone's internet not working is almost impossible ( except in some rare cases ) but IB site not working is highly possible . :P

@Nandini - Not all are my wins! My kid has won 3 International Trips due to her own efforts!

While I have technically won only 1as though selected, I could not go for the Lux-London-Trip as my Passport's expiry was less than 6 months away...

Just imagine! After all these years of trying my luck at 100s of Travel-Contests, I have won just 1!!! Bad Ratio!

Dreaming of my 1st win at IndiBlogger! Love to Travel & 2 explore! :)

disha kotak

hey Anita !

how dose it matter who wins , as long as its all in the family {#emotions_dlg.laughing}

you are right , there is no harm in paying the tax for those who love to travel,

but its always good if you are informed bout it before hand ,

for my free trip to Sikkim i paid the tax and it was well explained in the T&C

didn't pay a penny for my free trip to Melbourne

but the Paris was a shocker ! so was keen on checking .

Anita
from Bhubaneswar
8 years ago

Hi Disha,

WOW! U have won a good number of amazing Trips! Congrats!!! Huge achievement! Laughing

It's a dream for me! Ask me! I love trips so much that whenver I see a trip contest, I have to take part! However, just won 1 from FM Radio so far!

Yes, it's my point too- Contests should inform everything in the T&Cs before hand so that we know what to expect! Smile

Anita
Anita

@Arvind - I never knew about having to ask for the TDS certificate. Thanks for the info.

@Disha-

When I won a cash-prize in a Quiz from Red FM, I was given a cheque with an amount 33% less than what I had won.

However, in another Quiz from the same Radio Channel, when I won a trip to Bangkok to attend the Bangla Film Awards, Red FM sponsored the whole trip and I had to pay nothing. Even Lux did not demand anything for the London-Meet-Abhishek-Aishwarya-Trip.

Ditto when my kid won Colombo-Meet-Yuvraj-Singh-Trip from HUL and HK Disneyland trips from Kurkure & Disney India. However, this year, when she was again shortlisted by Disney India, we got to learn that a tax amount per family-member was to be paid owing to the stricter laws now.

In most cases, they clearly announce if Tax is to be borne... Didn't Gillette inform you about the same before you won?

Wish they do then we know exactly what to expect. Anyway, those bitten by the travel-bug will spend!

will the winners be expected to pay tax on their gits ?

For all the contests which have been organised till now, winners were not asked to pay any taxes. So, it will probably be the same with this contest too. Laughing

Arvind Passey

Blogging contests don't have prizes big enough for the Sponsors to insist on the winner paying the involved tax. The TDS that is deducted for prizes that fall in the tax bracket sometimes need a PAN number of the winner. This TDS is reflected in your tax statement for the year... so if a sponsor does ask for your PAN number, do remember to ask for the TDS certificate as you may need it when you file your return.

disha kotak

Hi arvind , 

I hv come across a number of companies that insist on the winner to get a gift tax challan and only then are they given the prizes , i.e. 33% of the value of the gift.

Remember the shave or crave contest from Gillette ,

Well I had to pay a huge tax for my trip to Paris ,

So was just making sure same is not the case , here.

Nandini Deka

o yes...in shave or crave they wanted tax for the ipads too...there was bit of brouhaha thread here too regarding that
