Awesome! Not even a week has passed and HTS is at it again. $500 to spend @ GIK means that for less than $100 you could get into the basic room treatment kit with Std colors. Of course you could set yourself up with some sweet tri-traps or base columns and shell out nothing. I am definitely interested.

Alrighty what perfect timing as well for the drawing!

you know...sometimes there are things that you just want and you buy or hope you win, but in this case it would be more of a need/necessity. Great deal guys, good luck to all!

I have been doing a lot of research lately on sound treatment. I was planning on trying some diy builds but then I came across GIK. After spending a lot of time reading in several different forums, GIK appeared to be a reputable company with good products at reasonable prices.

Then I saw the $500 Shopping Spree Giveaway. How lucky for me since I'm planning on winning!

hey highside and jackfish, did you read the actual giveaway qualifications? Im not trying to be mean or anything I just wanted to tell you qualifying members were supposed to register for the drawing by March 31st.

Re: GIK Acoustics $500 Shopping Spree Giveaway Qualification Thread

I guess I focused in on the May 15th date and didn't carefully read the March 31st date.

Qualification period is from February 15, 2011 through May 15, 2011.
Qualifying members must be registered by March 31, 2011 in order to qualify.

If the qualification period is until May 15th, and one doesn't actually meet the qualification requirements until after March 31st, how can they register by March 31st if they don't qualify? So the effective qualification period is February 15, 2011 through March 31, 2011, not May 15, 2011. May 15, 2011 is just the date after which the drawing occurs.

Thanks for pointing that little trap in the qualification requirements I missed.

EDIT: highside and I have qualified which has been clarified by Sonnie, Kadijk and fitzwaddle. Please ignore my confusion resulting from mrbashfo's post.

I don't know if this is the place for this discussion but my thought was that the "register by" meant with HTS as members in general, not with the specific draw. I could be very wrong though. Comments Sonnie? Anyone?
Thank you Kadijk (and Brad - posted while I was typing this)... you got it right... and these posts have been moved to the correct thread... :T

A very simple PM would have clarified this for anyone that did not understand it. :whistling:

You do not "register" for the giveaway... you "enter" it by posting in the qualification thread as instructed. You would register to become a member at HTS. We have this deadline in there to prevent people from registering a day or week before the giveaway just to enter and try to win. We typically want members to be registered for at least 30 days before they can be qualified to enter a giveaway.

Why anyone would think we would create a "trap" or a giveaway with such rules is beyond me. What possible purpose would it serve. :rolleyesno: Not only that, but this rule that members must be registered prior to a certain date has been in play in most of our giveaways... and very clearly no one has been previously "trapped"... nor have they interpreted it incorrectly. We try to do good and people try to make something silly out of it. :dontknow:
