Frequently Asked Questions :

  • Q) Do I need to submit a separate entry form every time I spend $10? A) No. Save your receipts for each drawing time frame and then staple them all to one entry form. We’ll do the math for you and give you one entry for every $10. (Double points for Small Business Saturday)
  • Q) I submitted my receipts, but now I spent another $10. Can I get another entry? A) Yes! You can submit your receipts as many times as you would like over the course of the entry period, but be sure to read the answer to the next question for more details!
  • Q) Will you add all of my receipts together? A) If you submit all your receipts on one entry form, then the answer is yes. $30 spent at numerous locations would give you a total of 3 entries. However, if you submit numerous entry forms over the entry period, the math will be done for whatever receipts are attached to each form. Remember, you receive double points for any receipts on Small Business
    Saturday, November 24th. All receipts will stay in for all 3 drawings so you can keep adding on receipts.  For example, if you spent $30.00 on Small Business Saturday, you get 6 chances.  Your chances stay in the drawing for all three drawings.
