    This week, we’re running another contest on Bedbugger!

    The lucky winner will get one Packtite. (You can read about Packtites here.)

    David James, creator of the Packtite, is generously donating the prize.

    I (site admin, nobugsonme) will select the winner using the random number generator at random.org, to avoid bias.

    How to enter: leave a single comment in this thread. The first line in the post should be a number. The first person will write a "1", the second person to post will write a "2" and so on, chronologically.

    Comments not starting with a number on the first line will not count as entries. Comments starting with random numbers (not following in chronological order) will be deleted and will not count as entries.

    Please enter only once and do not use multiple accounts to enter the contest. Previous winners of a Packtite are disqualified.

    Please do not enter the contest if you work in the pest management, pest detection, or pest product business. (It’s the honor system! Please be honorable!)

    Contest void where prohibited.

    After the number, you may hit the "return" key and write any other message you like (but please begin on a new line in the post, so others can easily see your number). You may also post other comments without numbers in addition to your one, single contest entry.

    (Please keep discussion limited to the contest and any questions you may have. If you want to discuss other topics, please do so in another forum thread.)

    You need to register for the site and login in order to leave a comment on this thread. (The blog end of Bedbugger and the Forums share user information so if you have commented on the blog in the past, you do not need to start a separate Forums account.)

    (David James can ship the prize only to residents of the USA at this time -- including areas with US zipcodes like US territories and US military addresses overseas! Packtites are not for sale in Canada and Europe yet, unfortunately.* Note: if you are outside the USA and want to enter with the plan of potentially shipping your prize to someone you know in the USA, this is totally acceptable!)

    The winner will be chosen randomly from entries received before 10 p.m. EST on Thursday 1/28/2010.

    I (nobugsonme) will then email the winner at the email in his/her site profile.**

    If you win, you will have 48 hours to respond to my email, giving me permission to forward your email address to David James of Packtite; you can then directly give him your name and address for shipping, and he will be responsible for providing and shipping your prize to you. If you don’t respond to my email within 48 hours, or your email address bounces back, I will use the same methods to choose an alternate winner.

    We will announce the winner’s username, but David promises not to share your real identity, email, name or address with anyone else. (Obviously, please do not use your real name as your username).

    Disclaimer: we’re doing this for fun and we reserve the right to change anything if we have to – but be assured we really do want to give away this prize!

    Many thanks to David James of Packtite for generously donating the prize!

    Good luck to everyone!

    Note: if you run a business and want to sponsor a contest on Bedbugger, please contact me via email or the contact form. Thanks!
    ———————————————————————–

    * We expect Packtites will be for sale in Canada and Europe soon. We also expect to be running more contests in future, so residents of other areas around the world, we hope to have a contest which you can enter, soon.

    **Please check now to make sure you have a working email address in your profile; in the forums, click “View Your Profile” in the right sidebar. Then click "Edit" in the profile (it's on the right, scroll down a bit.) If you change anything, be sure to save the changes.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I can't turn down a chance at a Packtite given how often I travel.

    Huge thanks to David (as if inventing the Packtite was not enough!)

    Thanks to all of you for being part of Bedbugger!

    Good luck to all.

    And we already have two possible contests lined up for future, so the contests will hopefully keep on coming.

    ...the "cautious victory" I declared recently was not cautious enough, and was no victory. I would love a packtite to make sure next time that all the contents of a ziplock bag are safe before opening it. Plus, I would love to actually be able to travel without worries of bringing the bugs home.

    The winner is...

    #29!

    Here's a link to the screenshot of the random.org generator "drawing" the winning number between 1 and 33 (note: one entry -- #34 -- was deleted as it came in at 10:16 pm EST, after the stated cut-off of 10 pm).

    Our lucky winner is Strabat!

    Strabat, please look for an email from me with instructions on how to claim your prize, and please respond within 24 hours. Thanks, and congratulations!

    Everyone else -- sorry you did not win this time. We will hopefully be having more contests soon. Thanks for entering and thanks for being part of Bedbugger.com!

    Thanks again to David James for his generosity in donating the Packtite for this giveaway.

    Entrants of this contest who did not win received a coupon code which was supposed to expire Thursday. In fact, the coupon somehow got deactivated and did not work. It's working again, and will remain active the rest of this week. Please PM me if you have questions or need it resent. Thanks!
