=================================================================

SEIZE-A-SHOPPE INFORMATION / SAS

==================================================================
The first and third MONDAY of every month at 2PM or 9PM EST (depending on the availability of the host) - a winner will be chosen at random from all shops that checked in, actively participated and are ON THE LIST for the previous 3 days.

Only the shops that meet the above criteria and are on the list at 9AM (your local time) *MORNING* can be in the raffle!

The winning shop will be announced at 2PM or 9PM EST on our thread by the previous winner!



At that time anyone wishing to participate will go to that store and purchase any item and come back here and post the transaction for the record!

This is not mandatory and is for fun and support of one another. The winning shop will then host the next MMG SEIZE-A-SHOPPE!




►► If you are not available to HOST the next drawing, please let us know so that we can remove you from the eligible drawing. (I understand that things come up, but there HAS to be rules to make it fair to everyone.
I can’t be responsible for everyone’s social calendars.) If you win the
drawing and don’t host the next drawing, you can no longer be eligible to win.

=================================================================

SEIZE-A-SHOPPE GUIDELINES!
=================================================================

* must CHECK IN at least once a day the previous 3 days.

* eligible shops for the drawing must be ON THE LIST by 9am your local time

* eligible shops must CHECK IN BY MONDAY BY 12PM (NOON) EST (Or buy back on if you were on the list by 9am local time and qualified with your daily check-in and got bought off on the day of the drawing)


* if you choose to participate you must POST A LINK TO YOUR PURCHASE on our thread so that we can all OOH and AHH and celebrate!

* WINNING SHOPPE NEEDS TO BUY BACK ONTO THE THREAD WITHIN 24 HOURS AND BE AVAILABLE TO HOST NEXT WEEK'S SAS!

* a shop can only win ONCE in 6 MONTH period

*** participation is not mandatory! it's just a fun way to support one another,
get sales, and increase feedback and confidence!
=================================================================
PLEASE NOTE: SEIZE-A-SHOPPE INFORMATION UPDATE
=================================================================

The list for our SAS drawing IS NOT FINAL until the list posting by dorana.etsy.com at 1:45PM EST right before the drawing when attendance is taken and those shops that have already won in the previous six months and shops that have bought in after our cut off time are removed from qualification by being moved to the bottom of the list. At that time the numbers will be rearranged depending on the movement of shops to the bottom of the list for the reasons mentioned.

Please let dorana.etsy.com know if you have any questions or concerns!

SAS DAY MMG TREASURY

==================================================================

■□ On SAS Monday, I will post a team Treasury featuring as many group shops as possible.

■□ After the SAS winner is announced at 2PM/9PM EST, thread communication will stop and we will move our chatter to the Team Treasury page

■□ We will continue promoting and shopping from the winner!

■□ If your shop is not represented in the Treasury, you can buy onto the Treasury from anyone (not only the SAS winner)

■□ ANYONE can buy onto the Treasury - but it is separate from the list - everyone needs to apply to join our team

■□ If you BUY onto the list and don't get bought off, you will be featured in the next Treasury.
