I’ll add the US citizen part to the original post and title. Unfortunately shipping batteries legally internationally is quite expensive and our main customer base is in the US. Sorry!

We have been thinking we would try a BLF specific giveaway in the next couple months, but giveaways are pretty new to us so we’re starting slow. Thanks for the feedback.

Not many here like facebook, me included. Appreciate your generosity and buy batteries from you guys often but if the only way to enter is through facebook, count me out. Sad

BLF is so good, it makes Facebook look bad in comparison.

Once you've found your way over here, there's no going back.

No Fakebook here. If it went away completely, I’d be happy.

Same here.

But -1 × -1 = +1 Isn’t it?

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I am based both in the EU and the US, not interested in a fb gwa, but I do wish you best of luck in ramping up marketing efforts. Looking forward to working with your brand on BLF here, can’t wait to read the first reviews about service, products, brand, and quality.

Good luck!

I don’t do Facetube either but good luck with the GAW. I shop LIion occasionally and will continue to but, Facetube only GAW is leaving a lot of your BLF customers not interested.

Not in US, and definitely no to facebook. I guess I’m hated.

Hey guys, appreciate all the feedback. I honestly had no idea so many don’t use Facebook. With that in mind, in the near future we’ll definitely plan to do some giveaways for BLF only. Glad I posted anyway, otherwise wouldn’t have known.

Hope at least a few people have been able to enter though. Obviously all the people without facebook are posting but I’m not sure if some people have FB and found this useful and if we should continue to post our facebook only giveaways here or not.

Will the winner have to monitor FB to know if they won?

You should get a facebook notification since we’ll send you a message. So you don’t need to be actively checking our post or anything, you should be notified and get a facebook alert. But you do need to see that you got a facebook alert. Does that answer your question?

Facebook BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
USA only BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

That’s a great way to turn a lot of people off on this forum, probably having the opposite effect to what you’re after

Thanks for doing this Jon & thanks for posting the link to FaceBook.

If people don’t do FaceBook, no biggie… they just don’t participate.

No way to please everyone.

If you decide to do a GAW here on BLF, that will be appreciated to. But it is not expected & please don’t feel ‘roped into it’. Thumbs Up

Edit: And yes, please continue to post your FaceBook give away notices here. I had no idea you even had a FaceBook page until I saw this notice a few days ago.

If some people do not like or use FaceBook that’s fine with me. But reading ‘some’ of these comments to you about your announcing your FaceBook GAW here on BLF is just sad. Real sad…..

It’s almost like there is a BLF entitlement expectation from some. Facepalm

Am I reading that wrong?? It is sure how a few of these posts come across to me….

Personally I find it very disheartening to look at a GAW thread only to learn I need to register on some external site, especially when I consider such registration to be harmful to me.
ADDED: And when I consider the act of registering to be harmful – being asked to register (in order to get some benefit) feels harmful as well.

I understand that. But every give away thread is not meant for every location or person.

And correct me if I am wrong Agro, but this particular GAW was for “USA Only”…. it did not even apply to you.

The man was trying to do something good for a particular segment of his customer base… he posted it here so that anyone who desired to could participate.

If someone did not qualify (USA only) or does not do FaceBook that’s OK….. but to complain about it (as a very few did) is ridiculous as far as ‘I am concerned’.

BLF is most likely not his biggest customer & to act like we “expect” special BLF treatment is somewhat ridiculous on any of our parts.

I think it was nice of Jon to mention this giveaway to us. And for Jon, it was nice to spread awareness of his company's facebook page to an audience. It just so happens that BLF is overlapping with some particular demographics that are less likely to have or trust facebook. I also think it's fine for people to share their opinions of facebook, but I don't think it's really fair to project that onto Jon. Personally, facebook makes me wish I got GDPR protections.
