(Right click to save the button on your computer)

Giveaway Prize: Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle (yes, that’s the Xbox 360 console, Kinect, and Kinect Adventures game) PLUS 2 Kinect games: Kinectimals and another to be determined

Reader Eligibility: Open to US and Canada

When: November 25 through December 6

This giveaway will run during the time of the 12 Days of Gifts Galore giveaway hop. It will be heavily promoted and the 2 events should help drive traffic to one another. For example, I will be cross promoting and linking these in my giveaway posts. We will also be purchasing giveaway listing services to help get the word out there.

We will use a Rafflecopter entry form. The mandatory entry will be to say which blog they are entering from. The blog with the most reader referrals will win $50! They will also need to follow everyone on GFC before they can do the rest of the extras (Facebook, Twitter, tweet, etc). This will bring you traffic. And since it lasts for 12 days, it gives them time if GFC is misbehaving. (If it misbehaves too much I’ll lift the mandatory part from Rafflecopter)

Sign ups will be limited to 25 blogs (plus the 2 hostesses) – Readers shouldn’t feel as intimidated by all the possible entries and more likely to do them all! GFC will be listed in order of confirmed sign ups. Then all the 2nd follow entries will be listed; then the 3rd for those who choose it.
*Hosts are not eligible for referral prize. All participants can enter the giveaway (except hosts) but cannot claim their own follow entries*

Participation fee: $20 to join and have 2 follow methods (GFC and Twitter OR Facebook). An optional 3rd follow method for $5 (Any follow you want). The fee covers the prize, advertising, blogger referral prize, and administrative fees. ** Limited time only! Get 3 follow methods for $20 – This promotion will end 10/23/11 or when spots are filled, whichever comes first.  If spots still remain the cost will go back up.  During this time, participating bloggers may enter to win their fee back! (Bloggers who already paid full price will receive an extra follow entry as well.)

Everyone will be required to post the giveaway on their blog with the button in the post. You do not need to make it sticky, but it should be listed with your other open giveaways so readers can find it. If I cannot find your post on the first day, you will be contacted to get it posted. After that you may be removed from the Rafflecopter form and forfeit your fee. (It’s not fair to get the follows if you don’t help advertise to your readers like everyone else.)
