How do I enter?From June 1st - September 30th, the BendPak Facebook page and the BendPak Twitter account will post an article once every weekday, not counting holidays. All you have to do is reply to the post with an insightful, engaging or just flat out funny comment within 24 hours after the initial posting. The comment can be just about anything as long as it's inoffensive, not containing nudity, excessive swearing, etc. If you want to get creative with an essay, song, video, photo or anything else you can think of, that's great!
The BendPak team will evaluate all the comments for that day and choose what we think is the best one. We will notify the best comment's author that they have been entered into the lift drawing. You can only be entered once, but one comment from Facebook and Twitter will be chosen each day. If you didn't win, you just have to try again tomorrow. There are approximately 86 days in the contest--that's 86 chances to get into the drawing!
On Facebook: Click in the box beneath the most recent BendPak post and type your comment. Just about anything goes, but a valid comment will refer to the day's article in some way. Remember, you'll want your comment to grab our attention--so be witty, be clever, be creative.
On Twitter: Follow us @bendpak and click "reply" under our most recent article post. You can also type "@bendPak" anywhere in your post and it will show up on our feed. As with Facebook, just about anything goes, but a valid comment will refer to the day's article in some way. Remember, you'll want your comment to grab our attention--so be witty, be clever, be creative.
At the end of the contest period, a winner will be chosen electronically at random--at which point he or she will be contacted to choose their lift and we'll get shipping information, etc.
That's it?For the most part. There's other terms and conditions like "must be 18 years of age or older" and "void where prohibited." Don't blame us--the legal department makes us do it.

How do I enter for the Ranger toolbox?This one is even easier. Starting June 1, 2011, go on your favorite automotive forum and let your friends know that BendPak is giving away a lift! Just make sure you link back to this page in the post (http://www.bendpak.com/free-car-lift). Once your post is live, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the proof. The simplest way is to send us a link to your forum thread so we can verify it.
If your forum is private, we will need you to send us a screen shot.
ONLY THE FIRST "POST FOR POSTS" THREAD ON A FORUM WILL BE COUNTED
If one of your fellow forum friends beat you to the punch, then you'll just have to find another one. We do this to prevent this contest from being the source of annoying spam for the online automotive community.
What about Facebook and Twitter?You can enter for the toolbox there too!
On Facebook: E-mail us a link to your page wall at email@example.com so we can see that you've told your friends about our contest. It's important to remember that you are posting this on your own wall, not the BendPak Facebook Page--mostly because we already know about the contest.
On Twitter: Just tag your Twitter post with #postforposts and it will show up in our feed. It would also help to include a link to this page using a URL shortener like bit.ly. For your convenience, you can just copy and paste this link: http://bit.ly/meNzIY
Even more fine print!
Slightly different sweepstakes, slightly different rules. The toolbox give-a-way starts June 1, 2011 and ends July 1, 2011. The winner will be chosen electronically at random. We will contact the winner either by e-mail, phone, direct message or public posting. Cannot be substituted for a cash. Must be able to take delivery by November 11, 2011.
