Cash is king – or so they say – especially since nearly all the time you have to jump through a whole lot of hoops just to get it.
Like the $30,000 in the The Internet Official Contest I’m writing this about.
Or the $5,000 check you get as a consolation prize if you miss out on the $30,000.
This contest involves voting and judging and if you just groaned out loud when you read that, consider this – because of those two things plus all the work that actually goes into this particular contest (read the full dets in the rules link below), very few people will enter which means your odds of winning will skyrocket. This particular sweep does require you to register a domain or domains (again, read the rules – I just skimmed through them) and the snail mail option info is below:
Mail-in Alternate Method of Entry: To enter without purchasing an initial registration of a second-level domain name in the .com top-level domain through a Participating Registrar, hand print your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address, date of birth, and one (1) second-level domain name in the .com top-level domain on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper (each, a “Mail-in Entry Form”) and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to
“Internet Official Contest,”
c/o HelloWorld, Inc.,
P.O. Box 5046, Department 816504,
Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5046
in order to receive one (1) entry (each, a “Mail-in Entry”). A Mail-in Entry will be eligible for the Contest only if the second-level domain name that is the subject of that Mail-in Entry is (i) unregistered as of the postmark date of the corresponding Mail-in Entry Form or (ii) registered to Entrant during any Monthly Entry Period on a date no earlier than one (1) calendar day prior to the postmark date of the corresponding Mail-in Entry Form.
Limit: Five (5) unique Mail-in Entries per envelope. All Mail-in Entry Forms for a Monthly Entry Period must be handwritten and must be postmarked and received by the respective dates set forth in the above chart with respect to such Monthly Entry Period.
