Default Re: Ganz Announces Webkinz Newz Winterfest Contest

The reason Ganz excludes NY and FL and Quebec is due to the laws of those states/province, not a choice Ganz has made.

FL and NY both require bonds (like insurance) be paid by the contest-offering company. They also have a mountain of paperwork you have to fill out (correctly) with a fee attached and if they reject it you don't get that fee back. It's expensive for a company to include their residents.

All three require that the rules be submitted (and approved) in advance, with a fee to even submit your rules. The fee is non-refundable, so if they don't allow your rules, then you lose the money for even asking. Quebec requires the rules MONTHS in advance, earlier than Ganz may have even decided on them! And NY is worse: if you don't notify them 30 days in advance of your contest, but do include NY residents, they FINE you.

It's such a hassle to include those three places that you'll find most online contests exclude their residents.

So don't blame Ganz, blame your state legislature!

Thanks Jenny! I would never have understood about the laws. These are the things that make WI such a benefit for its members. At least I don't feel quite so ignored anymore!
