CollegeBookRenter 2013 Holiday Sweepstakes FAQ

by collegelife on December 6, 2013

How do I enter the sweepstakes?

CollegeBookRenter is running TWO simultaneous daily sweepstakes giveaways between 12/5/13 – 12/20/13. Our “Happy Holidays” sweepstakes takes place on our website and celebrates the season of giving with some of the year’s hottest gifts. “Thanks for Sharing” takes place on Facebook and is our little way of saying thanks for letting us share in your college experience. Both of the daily sweepstakes will be announced on our Facebook page.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS: To be entered for the daily website prize, all you have to do is log in to your account. No purchase is necessary to win and new users can set up an account in minutes. If you already have an account but have not logged in recently, you will be required to update your personal information upon first login. Though you DO have to log in to enter, no purchase is necessary.

THANKS FOR SHARING: To be entered for the daily Facebook prize, all you have to do is “LIKE” or “COMMENT” on the daily sweepstake- eligible post on Facebook. We encourage you to share the post with your friends so they can enter as well. “LIKE” the CollegeBookRenter Facebook page to ensure that you receive notifications for future promotions.

I don’t have a CollegeBookRenter account, can I still enter?

You are not required to have a CollegeBookRenter account to be entered for the daily Facebook prize.

 You are required to have a CollegeBookRenter account to be entered for the daily website prize.  If you do not have a CollegeBookRenter account, it only takes a few minutes to set one up. Visit , click on the Login/Register button at the top, and follow the instructions.

Do I have to update my account daily?

No. Once you have logged in and updated your account once, the information will be retained. To be entered any other days, all you have to do is log in to your account.

Does logging in multiple times in the same day increase my chances of winning?

No.  You can only be entered for the prize once daily regardless of the number of times that you log in to your account. Be sure to log in at least once daily to be entered for each day’s prize.

Does placing an order increase my chances of winning?

No. No purchase is necessary to win, nor does renting increase your chances of winning. However, if you do rent your books now, you can take advantage of our early bird discount. Use discount code EARLY20 to save 20% on your rentals, which should make everyone feel like a winner!

 How are the winners chosen?

Winners are chosen at random from all eligible entrants for that prize.

How will I know if I have won?

If you are one of our lucky Facebook winners, we will message you through Facebook.

If you win one of our website prizes, we will notify you through the email address you used to log in to the winning account.

When will I be notified if I’ve won?

We will send notifications on the day following each sweepstakes giveaway. Weekend prize winners (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) will be notified on the following Monday.

How long do I have to claim my prize?

Winners will have 48 hours from when the notifications are sent to claim their prize. We may allow an additional 24-hour grace period on a case-by-case basis.

When will the winners be announced?

Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize. Once the prize has been claimed and the winners verified, we will post the winners’ names to Facebook.

Can I change my prize if I don’t like it?

All prizes are final and can not be traded for other prizes or cash. 

What happens to any unclaimed prizes?

All unclaimed prizes will be held and given away in another promotion in the coming weeks, so be sure to continue to follow us on Facebook and check out our site to stay informed.

What does CollegeBookRenter have planned for the holidays?
