Another Competition Moan!

Competitions

Just entered a competition that needed minimal personal details and then the usual submit. Then, after, you receive an email saying you must confirm your entry which, when opened, wants another load of details before you are actually entered. Very cheeky in my opinion just be upfront and honest about what is required.

I think competitions should only ask you for your name and email address. Nothing else.

As for postal address, I think that should only get asked if you are the winner. Some of these companies can be very nosey. Especially since answering the questions is usually mandatory.

I totally agree! I tempt to give up as soon as they require a phone number. I am less bothered with the address but I agree that only winner should be obligated to provide it in order to receive the prize!

I agree...unless I really want to win, I end up coming out of those ones.
