Choosing a Prizeo Winner in 7 Steps
At Prizeo, our donors are dedicated to giving small (and often more) in order to win big. We sure know how to pick ‘em! Actually, we DON’T pick ‘em! Let me explain the 7 steps involved in choosing a Prizeo winner.
STEP 1: YOU DONATE
Everything starts with your generosity. Once you donate to a campaign, you’ll see the total number of your entries in the “Order History” page of your Prizeo account. These are the number of chances you have to win. To increase those chances, consider participating in our new Badge program (scroll to the bottom of the page). You can also share your unique link to earn bonus entries from friends who use it to donate. (They also receive a bonus too!)
STEP 2: CAMPAIGN CLOSES
Now we choose!
STEP 3: PICK A WINNER
Once a campaign closes, we run all the entries through our Random Number Generator software, and a lucky winner is selected.
TAKES 1–2 BUSINESS DAYS
STEP 4: INTERNAL PROCESSES
Once the software has randomly chosen the winner, we run background checks (if applicable) and other internal processes with the charity partner to button down all the details for a seamless grand prize experience.
TAKES 3–8 BUSINESS DAYS
STEP 5: NOTIFY THE WINNER
We notify the winner by email or telephone (depending on the preference you’ve chosen in your account) within 5–7 business days after the campaign closes and check availability to attend on the specified dates. To prevent Prizeo emails from accidentally going into your spam folder, make sure you whitelist support@prizeo in your email account.
TAKES 1-2 BUSINESS DAYS
STEP 6: ACCEPT THE GRAND PRIZE
If you’re the lucky winner, make sure you pay attention to the reply date in the announcement email. Typically, you have 24 hours to accept the grand prize. We will reach out as the deadline approaches, but if we do not hear from you by the deadline, we pick another winner.
TAKES 24 HOURS FOR EVERY WINNER SELECTED
STEP 7: ANNOUNCE THE WINNER
Once the winner has accepted the grand prize and all the internal processes are clear, we will announce the lucky recipient across our social media channels. Make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up to date on all our exciting announcements.
TAKES 1–2 BUSINESS DAYS
We work to provide the most seamless Prizeo experience, from donation to Grand Prize. As you can see, a lot goes into choosing a winner, so we can’t predetermine a set timeline. Plus, if everything goes faster than normal, we don’t want to leave you waiting. We guarantee we will always announce the winner as soon as possible!
