Giveaway Policies: The Fine Print

At the end of the entry period all entries will be counted and assigned a number. A random number generator will chose the winning entry. Winners will be contacted via email. In some caes, winners will have 48 hours to verify their entry by replying to Montebello Mom with a mailing address if an address. If the winner does not reply within 48 hours another winner will be chosen by the random number generator.

For giveaways that allow for multiple entries, each entry will be given a number based on the type of entry, for example: facebook likes, sharing the post on facebook, leaving a comment on the giveaway facebook post, follow by email, and leaving a comment within the post on MontebelloMom.com. All the entries in a specific type of entry will be numbered and a random winner will be chosen.

One entry per person or email per method of entry. Duplicate entries under the same method of entry will be deleted.

All prizes are delivered via the United States Postal Service or in person if you live within 10 miles of Montebello and the prize is large. In the case that a prize will be delivered by a third party, i.e., the manufacturer, the prize may be delivered by another method.

MontebelloMom.com does not sell or use email address for anything other than giveaway purposes, unless the entrant states in an entry form that they wish to be added to the MontebelloMom.com newsletter.

Contact me with your questions at montebellomom@gmail.com.


Winners: This is how I hope you feel after you receive the email that you won.

Geoffrey Games Event
Toys/Babies R Us Stores

Noon - 3PM

Two events are occurring this Saturday. I've been to a few Toys R Us events and they usually involve an activity and a small freebie giveaway. The kids always enjoy themselves and leave with a free small gift or coupon, which I love.

I picked up the flyer with the information at the Montebello Toys R Us location, usually these events occur at all large Toys R Us locations, not outlets.

Toys R Us:
"Celebrate summer games the "R" Us way! Parents bring the kids and join us for fun activities where everyone's a winner!"

Babies R Us:
"Celebrate summer games the "R" Us way! Parents can win prizes competing in events such as What's in the Diaper Bag?, Travel System Challenge, trivia and more."
