#MoleskineLove2011 week three winner & this week’s giveaway!

Before we proceed with our Week 3 winner we would like to promote a local Twitter hashtag: #RP612fic.

What is #RP612fic?

From @anitero: “#RP612fic is simply a way for Philippine writers to celebrate Independence Day through micro-stories sent out over Twitter all throughout June 12. Once the 12th has come and gone, I collate the stories in a post on Rocket Kapre. We do it to remind people it’s Independence Day, because we love any excuse to write, and because it’s fun!”

Some micro-stories are being posted already, you can view them here.

More explanation of this movement is linked here (via www.rocketkapre.com).

Check it out! Enjoy the micro-stories or better yet, participate! – #RP612fic via Twitter

===========

Now, our Week 3 winner is @phoebecasin! She won a Moleskine Large Ruled Reporter Notebook!

For Week 4 it’s back-to-school month and this week’s giveaway we will talk about the teachers who inspired you the most!

We are giving away one (1) Moleskine Large Cahier Ruled Kraft Set of 3.

All you have to do is tweet an answer to this question:

Who was the teacher who inspired you the most?

Tweet format is:

============

#MoleskineLove2011 -your answer- @avalonph http://bit.ly/jP4q3q

============

Feel free to share some details with your tweet but the first tweet must include #MoleskineLove2011, @avalonph and the bit.ly link. We expect some tweet variations but they will count as long as they comply with our ‘common sense’ rule.

– Contest starts June 8 and ends June 15 (Wednesday), 9:00pm 2011. Philippine residents only.

– One entry per validated tweet. Winner through a List Randomizer or something similar.

– Some might be inclined to write a blog (or Tumblr, etc) post. You are free to “drop” the bit.ly link in exchange for your link but you must mention this giveaway and use the “giveaway” link back within that post. You must keep the #MoleskineLove2011 hashtag and @avalonph in your tweet though as it is our way of tracking your tweets.

If you are new to this giveaway series we suggest you skim through our previous mechanics. Most of them still applies.

So good luck everyone! We are excited to read your tweets about the educator who inspired you the most!

#MoleskineLove2011 week two winner and this week’s giveaway!

Update (May 31, 5:00pm): Congratulations to @ybiang from Cebu! You won a Moleskine Classic Pocket Ruled Notebook! She declared her co-winner as @firedancer67, also from Cebu City.

 

 

For Week 3, everything starts fresh. All entries back to zero. We want to make things very simple so we can get most of our Twitter followers to participate.

This week, the giveaway is one (1) Moleskine Large Ruled Reporter Notebook!

Joining is as simple as one tweet and forget. Just tweet:

============

#MoleskineLove2011 Moleskine & *somethingelse*. @avalonph http://bit.ly/irekKE

============

– Obviously, replace *somethingelse* with one or a few words. Keep it clean, somehow relevant and no trolling.

– Contest starts May 31, 4:00pm and ends June 8 (Wednesday), 2:00pm 2011. Philippine residents only.

– One tweet = one entry. Repeating a ‘combination’ will not count. Winner through a List Randomizer or something similar.

– Bonus +four (+4) entries for creative posts. This will be our discretion.

– Negative points for people tweeting “*somethingelse*” as-is.

– No limits* to entries but do not encourage SPAM. Please be aware that SPAMMING your twitter stream might cause some of your followers to unfollow or even BAN you. Please use discretion and respect your follower’s annoyance threshold. *- if it  is obvious you are trolling, we will disqualify your tweets.

– If you are new to Avalon.ph Twitter giveaways 2011, please check our past rules and mechanics here. The specifics still generally apply.

Thank you for reading and complying. Good luck everyone and tweet away!

We’re back to spread Moleskine Love! It’s been almost a year since our last giveaway, and we’re coming back to run a giveaway series to keep everyone excited.

From May 17 up to the end of June 2011 we will stage a series of Twitter Moleskine giveaways to share Moleskine Love!

To those who participated before, try your luck again!

To our visitors who found their way here via the giveaway news/tweets, welcome!

Avalon.ph is one of the oldest online shopping website in the Philippines. We’ve been online since February 1999 specializing on books, Moleskines, signed books/collectibles and other novelties.

We are staging a series of Twitter giveaways and we want you to be part of it. While our giveaways do not require participants to RT/retweet or “follow us” (except private profiles), we politely request that you give us a chance to show up in your Social Media timeline. Follow us, “Like” our Facebook Page or just check our Social Media accounts listed at the end of this post.

#MoleskineLove2011 – May to June 2011.

This is not your usual Twitter giveaway, we introduced a few twists so observe the rules. No worries, nothing is nosebleed material.

Avalon.ph is giving away a Moleskine Classic Large Ruled Notebook!


How to join? You need Twitter to post an entry and we will draw a winner by the end of the giveaway.

Just tweet:

———————————————–

#MoleskineLove2011 Good luck to @twitterusername. I want you to win a Moleskine from @avalonph – http://bit.ly/mR3RrB

Note: This specific tweet giveaway over, please refer to latest entry of the giveaways.

———————————————–

Tweet the line posted replacing @twitterusername to one of your Twitter friends. By doing that you automatically get:

– One (1) entry for every Twitter user posting the official giveaway tweet. You do not get additional entries by posting again even if you post different @twitterusernames.

– One (1) entry + more for every Twitter user @mentioned by their Twitter friends. The more people @mentioning them, the more entries they get. Multiple identical postings from the same Twitter user & username not counted (no repeats).

Remember the TWIST of this giveaway: the only way to increase your entries is to get your username @mentioned by your Twitter friends.

We did a similar Twitter giveaway before, only this time the poster gets a one-time entry.

As long as you enter your tweet in the format provided, Avalon.ph will easily track all your entries and @mentions. Twitter users with Private Profiles, make sure you take the necessary actions for your tweets to be visible to us (follow me & I’ll follow back, accept request even temporarily, or email us to follow you). Our twitter account is: avalonph.

Before you start tweeting @mention to your friends, here are the rest of the ‘formalities’.

– open to Twitter users with a Philippine-based address serviceable by major couriers. If you are out of the country, as long as you (or reliable friends) have a serviceable local address you/they are qualified to join.

– Giveaway duration is from May 17 (Tuesday) up to May 23 (Monday), 2:00pm, 2011. All valid entries will be tallied and a winner will be drawn via a List Randomizer website. We will announce it on Twitter + @mention within 24 hours. Winner must respond within a reasonable period, preferably 2-3 working days.

– the valid tweet must fit 140 characters. No use of link shortening and other related Twitter services. You are allowed to mention more than one username per tweet as long as they fit within 140 characters (… Good luck to @mention1 @mention2 @mention3…).

– We will not answer inquiries about the number of entries you received. We are very efficient in monitoring legitimate Twitter entries so do not worry.

– We will not notify a user if his entry is invalid. Avalon.ph reserves the right to invalidate entries that are considered ‘dubious’, ‘malicious’ or from ‘fake’ accounts.

– We do not encourage SPAM. Please be aware that SPAMMING your twitter stream might cause some of your followers to unfollow or even BAN you. Please use discretion and respect your follower’s annoyance threshold.

– COMMON SENSE apply on all disputes, loopholes and oversights. Avalon.ph is the SOLE arbiter to decide which entry is valid. Avalon.ph reserves the right not to really change, but to fine-tune the mechanics as we see fit during the duration of the giveaway.

That’s it! Thank you for reading and complying. Good luck everyone and tweet away!

How to join?

Entries will be submitted through Twitter. The twist for this contest is that if you want to win, entries are to be submitted by your friends/followers and not yourself! Either you request them to @mention you, or @mention your most generous friends/followers to win and wait for them to @mention you back. At the end of the contest, all @mention entries will be submitted through Randomizer to draw one (1) winner!

The line to tweet is:

Share Moleskine Love! I want @mytwitterfollower to win a Moleskine set from @avalonph! Details here – http://bit.ly/ccDbT3

Obviously, change @mytwitterfollower to any of your friend/follower twitter account (believe it or not in my previous contest some didn’t). As long as you enter your tweet in the format provided, Avalon.ph will easily track all your entries and @mentions. No repeat @mentions. Same @mentions will only be counted once per account.

Before you start tweeting @mention to your friends, here are the mechanics for this contest:

– Contest duration from June 9 up to June 15 (Tuesday) June 16 (Wednesday), 3:00pm, 2010. Winner will be drawn within 12 hours after contest end.

– Winner, or the person you @mention should have a Philippine-based address serviceable by major couriers.

– Must be able to verify your entry and should appear in my twitter stream (@avalonph). In short, if I cannot see your entry because the one who @mention you has a private profile, it will not count. Respectfully request them to follow @avalonph and I will follow back to check the entry.

– At the end of the contest, all entries will be submitted to a Randomizer website and a winner will be drawn.

– Winner will be notified through Twitter. Winner must respond within a reasonable period, preferably 2-3 working days.

– COMMON SENSE apply on all disputes, loopholes and oversights. Avalon.ph is the SOLE arbiter to decide on issues about this contest. Avalon.ph reserves the right not to really change, but to fine-tune the mechanics as we see fit during the duration of the contest.

This is not about who gets the most @mentions like our last contest. All @mentions will be submitted through a Randomizer to draw a winner. Remember, one entry can make a difference. One of the winners of our last draw only had 2 entries (as compared to some who have 20+).

Please do not ask us about how many entries you received. We will not answer inquiries with regards to your number of entries. Remember, some may have private profiles and some Twitter account are ‘spam’/fake accounts. If a user has a private profile it is your job to inform them to follow me. We will only count “valid” entries according to the @avalonph Twitter feed (not yours). What I see on my @avalonph twitter feed is different from what you see on yours.

We do not encourage SPAM. While there’s no limit to the entries/@mentions you can make, please be aware that SPAMMING your twitter stream might cause some of your followers to unfollow you. Please use discretion and respect your follower’s annoyance threshold.

Make one of your Twitter followers happy! Tweet them to win a Moleskine Notebook! Good luck!
