I had to leave shortly after the contest started but congrats to those who got a rug!!!!

And giving the kids a chance to get a rug is an awesome idea Justin....

I will be on the lookout for the next time the contest comes around.

I tried for almost 2 hours and did not see a single rug. I was hoping to get at least one rug for my DD but I am sad to say I got nothing. I will be calling Ganz to express my frustration with this whole thing. Im very dissapointed and my dd will be even more upset than I am when she gets home from school.

I immediately called the Ganz 'hot line' and they said they were having problems and they would call back after they got word from the tech.

I spent the next 2 hours refreshing and logging in and out with no luck. No rug to be found. Then they shut down the contest at 11:02.

Customer service called me back at 11:20am and said "We are having difficulties and have shut down the contest until further notice. Keep an eye out for the next time to play." When I complaied about catching one and not being awarded a prize they said no one was able to win. I explained to her that in fact my friend had one sent to her email and she only said, "Sorry but I was told no one was able to get a prize. Watch for when we reopen the contest for another chance to win." I told her that it wasn't fair that I indeed caught one, and had the correct answer wasn't there a way to award my gift anyways. I was told to play the next time.

Totally bites !@!
Me and a few other people were able to get the rug. Like I said, I didn't have a problem getting it. It sounded like that women you talked to just didn't want to deal with it

But I do not think this was a way to keep kids out. The original time for the contest was until 11:59 PM so it was suppose to run all day.

There are kids who home school (not mine) etc. so I think because the contest was suppose to run all day is pretty fair.

The fact it shut down and people will get to keep rugs when others will NOT have the chance is another ENTIRE story!

Yes BUT, if they really planned to only give out a certain amount shows that they really didn't give it thought. It wouldn't take long at all for these to be gone, and then what??? I don't think they did it to purposely keep the kids out, I just don't think they gave it enough thought. They should have done it on a Saturday, when more people (of all ages) could have had a chance! And my annoyance with this has nothing to do with weather or not I got a rug.

Ganz is becoming more and more disappointing as each day goes by. It costs a fortune to buy everything and then nothing works. They are trying to add way to many new features at once so nothing is done thoroughly. I don't need tons of new things, just one or two that actually work. I would have loved to get a rug but unfortunately I am a teacher and couldn't get on at 9am. They should have started it at 8 so that kids could go on as they got ready for school. They also should have accounted for how many people would be trying to get them. Sad that they are seeming more greedy then anything.

To the people who are upset about the Time the contest was to run ! you have to remember What time zone you LIVE in I know for me it was really 7 am to start and for my granddaughter it was 6 am to start and it was to run ALL day !so I dont think that Ganz was trying to exclude the children ! They did say that that they will run it again.

I know my son will be disappointed so that is something I am not letting hime know about. I sat for the time it was supposed to be on, refreshing, refreshing and refreshing, never to see a floating rug. What a disappointment!

I hope they at least run this on a weekend next time and make sure there are no glitches first.

So sorry for anyone who didn't get the rug. I didn't have any problems getting one, but I think some of the misunderstanding was where to look for them. The only place I saw one was at the top of their home page in the ad. Until I saw it there I kept expecting it to float by any wheres on the page like the blue ribbons do.
