December Winner

Ok, we have tried to create a monthly giveaway and we have been running into many obsticles due to customers that are adding people they know to our give away list without letting their friends and family know they are doing it. This is creating many issues for us and it is making this giveaway very difficult to maintain. Contacting winners have been a very difficult task since we have been having issues with ISP's automatically blocking our emails as spam. Once we choose a winner we email them and they have 7 days to respond to claim the prize. If we do not receive a response we have to choose another winner and it becomes time consuming.

Why are we having this issue? There are many folks that are not happy with just entering themselves into the giveaway, They are entering all their friends and families email addresses as well. When their friends and family receive the confirmation email that we send out they report our emails as spam since they did not sign up to receive anything from us... This causes the ISP's to mark our emails as spam and folks that did sign up might not get a winning notification because of this.

From this point forward only one email address is allowed per IP address. If the same IP address submits multiple email addresses ALL email address will be voided and none will be entered into the give away.

It took almost 3 weeks to find a winner for Decembers drawing. The winner of the Beltronics RX65 was Michael Rubinstein from TN. For January we have already choosen 2 winners and both with receive Cobra 9930 Radar Detectors. As soon as we receive a reply from the 2 winners which were emailed we will post their information.
