Hi there! It is important you read carefully so you understand all the details of this giveaway including:
- When the deadline is to enter by
- How to submit a qualifying entry
- How the winner is selected
With so many scammers on YouTube, this giveaway will be using a Google Form instead. In the past, entries were done through comments, but since scammers pretending to be me respond to everyone's comments trying to get private information or trick them into sending them money, a Google Form is a closed loop without that risk.
The deadline to submit an entry is by 11:59 p.m. EST (Toronto Time), on Friday, November 17th, 2023. The Google Form is automatically set to expire at that time which means if you click the entry link (down below after you finish reading), and are greeted with this text👇 the deadline has already passed:
How to Enter
After reading this page, click the link to the Google Form near the bottom of the page and follow the instructions. Remember: it is your responsibility to spell your details correctly so we can get in touch with you if you're the winner.
Don't Get Disqualified!
Once the deadline closes, it'll tie into Google Sheets in our backend and flag any duplicate entries. Those will all be deleted. In other words, one entry per person.
Random.org will be used. Basically Google Forms will tabulate the total number of entrants. If, for example, 100 people enter, I'll then go to Random.org and have it choose a number from 1 to 100. Your entry number will be based on when you entered. The first person to enter will be 1, and the last person to enter before the deadline will be the biggest number.
The winner will be notified via Instagram DM or Email (depending on which they select when they entered), and will be notified by 11:59 p.m. EST (Toronto, Canada time) on Monday, November 20th, 2023).
The drawn winner will have exactly one week (until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, November 27th, 2023) to respond and arrange for shipping. The winner will choose whether they would like a 35L, or a 45L, and, whether they'd like a Black, Ocean Blue, or Forest Green backpack. Of course, the winner will first visit Pakt to ensure their first choice is in stock (unless they don't mind waiting), notify me, so I can buy and have it shipped directly to the winner.
If no response is received, we will notify them that their prize claim period has expired, and will use Random.org to draw a new winner from the original list. That person would also have one week to claim the giveaway prize.
Shipping & Taxes
Since I will be buying the backpack after the winner lets me know which variant they'd like, shipping will originate from the Pakt warehouse in the USA. Depending on where the winner lives, and their country's trade agreement with the USA if they live outside of the contiguous United States, taxes, import duties, and brokerage fees may be imposed, and paying those potential costs are solely the responsibility of the winner.
Since I will be ordering directly from Pakt, by entering, the winner accepts that I will have to share their shipping details with Pakt (obviously, since how else are they supposed to ship to the winner).
Thank you for reading all of these entry rules and terms. Here's the entry link, and best of luck!
