Blog Giveaway! FREE Flight, No Purchase Necessary

Do you ever go to an ophthalmologist and tell him of your chest pain? He should know everything about the heart right? After all he is a doctor. The same can be said of attorneys who by their title of counselor are expected to know everything about every law.

I’ve been posting about my Blog Giveaway, a FREE flight on Southwest Airlines when somebody messaged me that I may be breaking the law by not including a “no purchase necessary” provision like they do in all those Mcdonalds commercials for monopoly. As I’m in Mongolia and no longer have access to Westlaw, I was unable to do thorough research as to the necessity of including this provision. As far as I’ve read, the rule applies to broadcasters but the definition of what is a broadcaster wasn’t explicitly explained.

Anyhow, the point of the giveaway wasn’t to turn a profit but to get everyone to give my book, Everyone’s Advice Is Wronga read so they can abandon their life in the cubicle and start searching for ThePointsOfLife. See what I did there?

But, because I am a lawyer and because people are too litigious I have responsibly changed the Terms and Conditions of the contest to eliminate the necessity of purchasing a copy. If anyone did purchase a copy feeling they had to do so out of necessity then return the book right away, Amazon will gladly refund you your money.

To enter for a chance to win, simply adhere to the following Terms and Conditions of the contest:

  • Get a paperback copy of the book from Amazon or wherever you choose. Click here for the link.
  • Take a photo of you enjoying the book anywhere and Tweet/Instagram @thepointsoflife with the hashtag #cubiclefree.
  • To ensure fairness, entrants must also email me abachuwa at gmail dot com a screenshot of where they got the book from and corresponding Twitter/Instagram page.
  • To ensure fairness, family and Facebook friends are excluded. (You’d think they would’ve bought the book already anyway.)
  • One entry per person.
  • Contest ends January 5th, 9PM EST.
  • The winner will be selected at random.
  • Flight booking must be made within 1 calendar year of January 5th.
  • Not redeemable for cash, not transferable.
  • This contest will have one winner.
  • No shady business, I am an attorney. (And now a more schooled one.)
Reading the book no matter how you come into contact with it makes you eligible for this contest. Is that explicit enough?
Reading the book no matter how you come into contact with it makes you eligible for this contest so long as you abide by the other requirements. Is that explicit enough?
