    Hi- I filled everything out as well, alas, no provided to share for referrals as well. I did, however, cut and paste the twitter, google+, and other optional links for additional entrees provided to boost my chances for this awesome giveaway! (I know, that kinda negates the additional entrees from referrals… but what the heck!) :) How do I get my ?

  • Alex 2.0 says:

    @Astha – The higher number of referrals, the more times your name gets put into the pool. However, it only takes 1 entry to win. Last year, our winner made ZERO referrals.
