This Week’s Giveaway Winners Are…

by | Jun 21st, 2012 | 4:12PM | Filed under: Giveaways, Movies, Quizzes, Contests & Polls

. . . Gretchen, Cheryl Dreger and Travis Longworth!

On Monday, we asked families to share their favorite summertime activities. Over 2,275 people responded, and here’s what our three winners had to say:

Gretchen: Pajama-and-movie day with a fort in the living room.

CherylWe love to rent cottages on our week’s vacation. We swim, fish and go boating. Just being together “away from it all” helps our family bond and relax.

Travis: Our favorite thing to do is to take the motorhome up to the mountains. I think Yosemite is our favorite place so far, although there have been other great spots as well. We love hiking and riding bikes on the trails. It’s so awesome to wake up to the birds singing and taking in a deep breath of fresh air. There is just something about being out in nature that puts everyone at peace.
Wow, these three know how to max and relax, huh?
And now, in addition to enjoying their favorite summertime activities, they’ll also each soon be the owners of an 8-pack of family-friendly DVDs to pop in when the kids are tuckered out from building their blanket-forts or breathing in all that fresh air. The 8-pack includes: Kiara the BraveSpace DogsJeremy Fink & The Meaning of LifeThe Race BeginsLife’s a JungleDonkey X AND Smitty.
Congrats again to our winners, thanks to everyone who submitted an entry, and stay tuned for a BIG giveaway coming up on Monday!

    wow..i just raed the winners and what I think is just a little crazy is that not everyone has money. Some of us live on budgets therefor the only way to enjoy a family movie day is in the comfort of our own home with popcorn and drinks,blankets and each other and that to me is the best family day anyone could ask for.It is about quality time,NOT how much money you can spend.

    Our favorite summertime activities always include Family & Friends Day. This day has picnic written all over it! Barbaque…good food and great company topped off with some backyard games like bocci ball, latter toss, bean bag toss, better known originally as Corn hole. The bean bags were actually filled with corn and would “poof white flour” as the bags were tossed 35 feet away onto a wooden platform playing board . After we have enough fresh air then we head in the house for some good old cards and cocktails. For those wiped out by all the food and fun head for a movie on the couch and the party goes on…A little more low key but we all continue in Family Day…Family & Friends, it’s what life is all about!

    I agree with my fellow redbox members…I am just as loyal if not more than the winners you usually select and i dont think its fair either that its always richie type people who have alot of money and alot more cool things to write you about. We are a family of 5 living on 1 income and we rent constantly and deserve a fair chance at the prizes. I dont rent movies anywhere else and I even refuse to pay the high theater prices to see a movie im dying to see, instead I wait for it to come out in redbox because you have such a great deal for our family!! Please be fair to the rest of us is all we are asking!!! Respectfully your #1 loyal customer

    Carol, Teresa — Awww, that’s so sweet of you. Thanks for leaving such kind comments.

    Meagan — Thanks! We love loyal customers like you.

    Ralph — That sounds like a wonderful day to us. Thanks for sharing.

    Heather, Lisa — Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate both of you taking the time to chime in with your opinions. One of the winners did say that she loved to setup a fort and watch movies with her family.

    Something important that might set your minds at ease is that we don’t go through a list and pick out our favorite winners. In total transparency, here is the process that we go through when selecting the winning entries. It’s actually very simple:

    1. De-duplicate all the repeat participants.
    2. Remove all the nonsense answers.
    3. Use a system that picks the remaining entries by random drawing.

    We use this process because our goal is to be as fair to as many people as possible. We want to give everyone a fair chance to win, regardless of the time they enter, how many times they enter, and where they enter from. Also, we don’t want to be accused of playing favorites or somehow picking “richer” people.

    Hopefully, this clears up the confusion. I appreciate all the opinions everyone has to share. Please feel free to also contact me directly at if you have any further questions.

    At your service,
    Michael E. Rubin

    Going to the County & State Fairs! My husband & I met at our county fair. I grew up on dairy farm and being able to show some of our cows at the fair was our family vacation! Now we have a goat farm & like show during our local fairs. You meet the most interesting people during the time of the fair. The kids get a real since of achievement competing in showmanship. It is fun to be with friends and to find out how your breeding program is coming along. And yes, going to the fair is still my vacation!
