We here at NashvilleGab love a good contest and love companies who provide us with items to give away to our wonderful readers. As such, here are a few of the more boring rules for entering to win contests on NashvilleGab.com.
BASIC RULES OF THE CONTEST WILL ALWAYS BE MENTIONED CLEARLY IN THE POST, AS WILL THE CONTEST SPONSOR
We aren’t trying to hide anything around here and make it a point to mention not only the contest sponsor but all rules for the contest within the contest announcement itself. If you have any questions, you can always contact me at shannon@NashvilleGab.com.
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS EVER NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN
