Use an ad-blocker. You can still get the entries without watching the long videos.

that?

I have won from the Bauer magazine sweepstakes dozens of times and I use Ad-Blocker. So no they will not disqualify you.

As far as I'm concerned, it's use ad-blocker or quit entering those. I refuse to jump through those hoops, especially for creative presentations.

I use AdBlock Pro on my Chromebook and Adblocker Plus on my Mac. I couldn't tell you the difference between the two. Oh yeah, I use a Norton ad blocker app on my phone and iPad also.

Thank you cookiegirl123. Hate to ask a million questions but is this the one?

Am really insecure about installing anything because I'm afraid of screwing things up. But I really hate the idea of Amazon or Macy's or any other company following me and their ads popping up all over the place.

I've got adblock plus an my Mac .. chrome.. but set to let some ads in.. and every so often those creative presentations get by the ad blocker for a few weeks .. then settle back.

The only thing I have to do on those usually is the am I a robot crap which is bad enough.

I think I went through Chrome directly to their add-ons to install the adblock plus
