You must be a legal resident . . .
This is a comment for those of you in power with various companies / establishments that run these little "come on" contests.
You know. You get a grocery receipt or a department store receipt and on the bottom it says: "You could win $XXX.XX. Your feedback is important to us..."
All you have to do is go online enter the code and fill out our survey.
So dutifully you do that. After ten or more minutes of ticking boxes and filling in comment squares you come to the end where it says - "to enter our contest, you must be 21 years of age and be a legal resident of the United States.
Fill in your name and email address so we can contact you if you meet these requirements." And so on.
Why didn't you say so at the beginning before I wasted my time? I don't qualify! I am a four month winter visitor.
And said survey will be deleted, you're not getting it.
Heck I've even been caught in Canada by the large racing organization. Advertised on TV, go online and fill out our survey or enter our contest, you may win free tickets.
Only at the end it says, you must be a legal resident of the United States to qualify.
Tell me that at the beginning. My time is as important as your time.
