October Contest?

Seems there has been one contest per month . . . will there be one for October? There could be lots of themes! I missed the last one (September), so hopefully there will be another I can get in on.

Either way, thanks for being so generous, helping everyone have some fun, and for helping keep our animals healthy!

I wouldn't get to excited either way. I'm the Aug winner. So far all I've received is a couple of emails promising a shipment.

How do they choose what to send you?

I have no idea. I figured it was a gift certificate of some sort. The first response after I sent my address just said they would get my order out. 2nd response was pretty much the same. Really have no idea of what, when or if I'll receive anything.

Kubla,
I was a winner last November, they had problems, from November and December of 2014, getting prizes out to people. However they did finally fix things and EVERYONE that was a winner got their prizes. You can read through the whole thing in these three links:

CONTEST: 12 Days of Gratitude (12 Winners!) - November 3rd - 14th

December Plant Photo Contest

Contest Winners, Thank you!

They will get you what they promised (and they have good stuff that is worth the wait), just keep in contact with them.


fireshadow2000,
When I won, they let people request things, but said they might put in something else depending on availability. However, I got everything I requested. It was great!

Well, that was my mindset too, but we're well into the 2nd month now.

If you noticed the dates from the links posted, it took a few people around 3 months. Go back and check the dates. Then keep contacting ACUREL. They'll get to you.

I'm wondering if Acurel has gone away. No response for a while and I can't get on their web site.

Got a really nice prize packet from Acurel today. I'm not sure, but I think it might be one of each of their products. Loads of water treatment, fish health products, filter material etc. I appreciate the contest and the prize. It's a shame the whole process had to be tainted with multiple inquiries and a 70 day wait, but stuff happens!

Thanks Acurel!
