View Full Version : What's up with all these extensions?

Does anyone know why so many sweeps seem to be getting extended lately? Why aren't the sponsors just ending them on the date originally planned? :dontknow:

I'm wondering the same thing.
Maybe they just want more entries/exposure?

No kidding, it's annoying! :nono:

Good question

I always thought...isn't it technically illegal if they don't follow their own rules for a sweepstakes?

Why should they DQ us for an extra entry when they don't follow their own guildlines?:nono:

I assume it must benefit them in some way, but with the huge increase in the number of online sweepers, you'd think they'd be getting more than enough entries without extending the deadlines. Maybe they are just trying to get a little more mileage out of the promotions before they give out the prize(s) but it seems disingenuous somehow. And it's happening so much lately! Oh, well, I can't figure it out.
