Giveaway runs from 2/22/13 at midnight until 3/15/13 at midnight. Winners announced 3/18/13. “Second Chance” contest runs from 3/18/13 to 3/21/13 and winner announced 3/22/13.

Second Chance $100 Amazon Giftcard Contest

Marketpad staff will select the three best “Marketpad Review Blog Posts” created by contestants and publish them here on our blog. We will then allow the public to vote for the one they think is the best. Voting will be open from Monday 3/18/13 to Thursday 3/21/13 hours and votes will be tallied and winner announced on Friday at 10am (PST). To vote, you must publish a comment to the blog post with your top choice. Only one vote per person. Only “real” people will be granted a vote (no fake comments – discretion will be Marketpad’s).

Our criteria for picking the “best” three will involve: 1) Creativity 2) Detail and 3)Thoughtfulness.

A good review blog post can contain some of the following:

  • What do you like about Marketpad?
  • What features are your favorite?
  • How does Marketpad differ from Craigslist?
  • What are some creative ways you could use Marketpad?
  • What you think Marketpad can do to be even better?

Not expecting a large amount of these review posts, so chances of winning this $100 Amazon Gift Card should be very reasonable! Blog posts need to be published on your personal or company blog. WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr accounts are also accepted. Your post MUST INCLUDE link to Marketpad.com. Please contact us with any further questions.

    Did the site staff actually read the “Entries” The entry by Kenny F. Shouldn’t be counted as an entry it is a whole two sentences that doesn’t describe the website or provide you with information about it. If I were interested in visiting the site & only have that ‘Review’ to go off of I wouldn’t be interested in looking at the site.

    • Kenny Fensom

      I followed the rules. There is no reason for me to be disqualified. I agree the other review is more in depth but that doesn’t mean my entry shouldn’t count.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jjcutt79 JJ Honeycutt

      Thanks for the feedback Skorch. We did take that into consideration. I think I over-estimated how many people would participate in writing a review entry. Since there was only two I decided to let it slide for the sake of continuing the contest. We appreciate the effort given by both entries. Thanks!

    I vote for A – Burning Moon her post describes what the website is about & tells us that it is easy to use the site sounds like a site I would use based off of her post. The other lacks in thoughtfulness & possibly thrown together by a middle schooler.
