Find out how sweepstakes like these work:

General FAQ
or feel free to ask anything in the thread!

Q. Do I need toaa put anything in the body of the email?
A. Nope. It's just that easy- correct subject line (or close enough variation), everything else is gravy.

Q. Do I HAVE to follow the Woot Facebook page?
A. No. But you should! Because you love us.

Q. How are you picking the winners?
A. Nothing too fancy- I wait til the end of the sweepstakes period and let Outlook catch up. I eliminate any ineligible emails (not within the correct time, not the right subject) and then determine how many I have. I use a random number generator to choose between 1 (the first received email) and however many responses I got.

Q. Will you update us when you pick the winner?
A. I will! But give me a good 30 minutes or so to send the email out. I update with their name when I get an email back from them accepting the release/terms.

Q. What's that release your rules are mentioning?
A. You are wise to be suspicious of legalese. It's basically so we can get confirmation you agreed to the terms & conditions (linked above), the most harrowing of which is that we want to post your name in this thread.

Q. So what happens if you don't hear back from the winner?
A. We're giving everyone until end of day 10/28 to respond. If they do not by then, we have all eligible emails saved and we'll redraw likely with a shorter time to respond to that email (this has only ever happened once though).

Q. How much do you want to smack all the people who are emailing you beyond the time limit you've provided?
A. You don't even know.

Q. I REALLY FOR SOME REASON NEEDED TO REPLY WITH A BLANK COMMENT QUOTING YOUR RULES BUT IT'S BEEN DELETED OR SOMETHING WHAT'S UP WITH THAT
A. I don't even know why you're doing that, of course I'm going to delete it! If you need to keep those rules in one of your posts then add something! Anything!

Is that winner or winners? Sounds like there should be 5 winners based on this part of the description ("one to each of five randomly selected people").

Assuming they mean 1 per day for 5 days = 5 random peeps.

Trying to make sense out of what they wrote isn't going to help you win the Putin costume.

For these contests, does it matter if you put the quotation marks in the subject line?

I'll make it clearer for the rest of the sweepstakes this week- I am slightly altering legalese and perhaps I should not be the one entrusted to do that.

BUT! Yes only one of these costumes to one winner per sweeps, but there will be a total of five this week.
