MCO's Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza Announcement

So for the last several weeks I've been vaguely mentioning MCO's First Annual Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza, but I haven't given you to many details on what it is. I bet a bunch of you are probably pretty curious by now!

As you know, I love the holidays. It seemed only fitting that I share my holiday love with you since you are all such a loyal MCO readers and I am so happy that my blog has taken off as it has.

With readers in mind, I set out to contact past (and some new) sponsors to see if they would be interested in participating in the HGE (holiday giveaway extravaganza). My main goal is for my readers to score some great gifts for themselves or for their loved ones to enjoy this holiday season. My second goal is to inspire you all to shop through small businesses rather than hitting the department stores this year. There are so many great and unique businesses floating around the internet, why go fight crowds and waste gas? You could do all of your holiday shopping from the comfort of your own home and support small businesses in the process.

MCO's First Annual Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza will begin on November 26th and go until December 16th. That is 21 straight days of GIVEAWAYS! I do have a couple of surprises in store as well for some of those days so you will want to make sure to keep an eye on our Facebook as well as the blog!

Here are some answers to questions you may be asking yourself about the HGE:

What businesses can I expect to see in MCO's HGE? I'm not going to spoil the surprise by telling you the exactly businesses, I have already leaked some of that information on my Facebook, but I can tell you that there will be some businesses that have sponsored product reviews in the past, and some businesses that I have not yet worked with and will be introducing to you for the first time.

What types of prizes can I expect to see in MCO's HGE? All of the prizes you see in the HGE will be for ladies and babies. There will be some store credits, some "You Choose" items, and some fun set prizes such as jewelry and more! 

Will I have to pay for shipping if I win? No, shipping will be paid for the business that is sponsoring the giveaway. 

What if I want to have it sent to my friend as a gift? You may choose to send your prize to a friend or family member as a holiday gift, you just need to communicate with the business to find out if that is something they are willing to do. MCO will recommend to you that you first have it shipped to you so that you can determine if it is "gift ready" or if you will need to wrap it first.

I live outside the U.S., am I able to participate in the HGE? At this time MCO's giveaways are only available to U.S. and Canada residents, if a giveaway only open to U.S. residents, it will say so on the giveaway. 

How long will the giveaways last? Giveaways will be (2) days long and will always end at 9pm PST or 12 EST. Edit: The giveaways will now last five (5) days long.

How will I find out if I won? A winner will be announced no later than the next morning after the giveaway closes. Winners are announced on both the rafflecopter AND on MCO's Facebook.

I won. Now What? If you have won the giveaway, MCO will pass your email address along to the sponsoring business and you will be contacted by their representative for further information such as your address. 

MCO, why don't you get all of my information and give it to the business? Why do I have to wait for their email? MCO chooses not to act as the middle man for two reasons, 1) I have a very busy schedule with Baby A, my Etsy shop, and my blog, and 2) Do you really want an extra person knowing your personal information?

I won, but I haven't heard from the business! The first thing you will want to do is check your email's Spam box, it is very possible that the email is lost in there! If you still do not see it, please contact MCO either through Facebook or Email and let me know.

Please let me know if you have any other questions by commenting on this blog post below so that other people who may have the same question can easily find the answer.

It's time to start getting excited about the HGE! Please feel free to share this on your Facebook so that your friends can get in on the action as well!!
