I calculate the winner by putting all eligible entries into an excel file, and allocating each entry a random number using the function in excel. I then use Random.org to select a random number, and voilá, we have a winner.
I email the winner, usually giving them a week to respond, and I state that the prize would have to be passed on to the next runner up., if they do not claim it on time. I had to email 5 people in a row before someone actually claimed the prize! So I am now happy to announce that Bargainmooser Nina has won the $75 gift voucher and is willing and eager to spend it on her kids.
Congratulations Nina! I've sent out the gift voucher and it should be with you soon.
The next Bargainmoose giveaway will be starting some time next week! I'm giving away an excellent prize package which might titillate male and female Bargainmoosers alike! Be sure to check in on us then, so you don't miss out on extra entries.
