CONTESTS, POINTS, AND PRIZES

What are your daily contests?

Every day we feature a new topic, and we turn to our users to submit the best gifts they can think of that fit the category. Then our users vote for their favorites. The top idea wins a prize and everyone else gets points for participating. View our infographic for more information.

What are points?

Points are rewarded for performing certain actions around the site. They show who our most active and accomplished gift suggestered are. Plus, points can be redeemed for entries into our random prize drawings.

How do I earn points?

Points are earned by completing the following actions:

  • Adding an idea to a daily contest: 100 points
  • Voting on daily contest ideas: 10 points awarded periodically throughout the voting process (max 250 per topic)
  • Creating your own crowdsourced gift request: 50 points
  • Adding an idea to someone's crowdsourced request: 100 points
  • Winning 1st place on a daily contest: 1000 points
  • Winning 2nd place on a daily contest: 700 points
  • Winning 3rd place on a daily contest: 500 points
  • Placing in the Top 5 on a daily contest: 250 points
  • Placing in the Top 10 on a daily contest: 100 points
  • Votes received on your daily contest ideas: 1 point each (max 100)

You can also double your points earned by adding a description to your daily contest ideas that we end up using on the site!

How do your random prize drawings work?

We display the details of our upcoming giveaway on the prizes page. Users can use their unspent points to enter these drawings. A winner is randomly selected after the countdown expires.

What is the "Ideas Showdown"?

It's our head-to-head style voting. Users choose their favorite of two products, then we swap those out for two new ideas. It's quick and easy and in no time, you've very accurately helped determine which products are the very best (and very worst).

I won a prize! ... Now what?

If you won a prize, you should receive an email from our prize fulfillment team within 24 hours with further instructions. The products available on our Top Gifts page can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/shop/giftedidea If you encounter any issues or have any questions, feel free to email support@giftedidea.com at any time though.

How often can I win a prize?

You can win our daily contests once every 14 days. There are no restrictions on winning our random prize drawings or any grand prize contest.

How often can I enter the daily contests?

You can submit one entry per day per contest. There are often multiple contests running at once and they usually run for more than one day at a time.

I submitted an idea, but I don't see it. Where'd it go?

Our participation in Amazon's affiliate program insists that we do not show products that are unavailable or out-of-stock. If your idea is missing, this is likely the issue. Don't worry, it will reappear as soon as it comes back in stock.

How is the "Most Gifted Gifter" Grand Prize winner determined?

We developed a proprietary formula to help us determine our grand prize winner. Basically it boils down to quality and quantity: submit great ideas to our daily contests, and submit them often! Good luck!
