  • Have registered and only 1 entry is shown!

    • Hi Baz, not sure what you mean. Each section offers a different number of entries, so it depends which you clicked on. Does that help at all?

  • No, No help at all, have signed up for the newsletter the facebook thing as well still no entries! Hope the start of your month bodes better than mine.

    • Hmm…that’s very strange. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. Have you tried doing the sign ups again? It’s working fine in general for other people, so I’m totally mystified. I’ll ask the Gleam people if they can find out what’s going on (they’re on a weird timezone though, so have to wait a bit).

    • Have tried doing that! Gonna give up now anyway, too much time wasted! Shame it was a good comp. Thx for trying to help.

  • The FaceBook and Google+ entries don’t seem to be loading. I’ve liked the page, but the +1 just shows a constant spinning circle, and the Google+ just doesn’t register that I’ve followed at all.

    • I’m putting a support request into the Gleam widget folk. Hope to have an answer for you soon. Thanks for your patience.

  • Howdy, Can you confirm whether or not this is open to UK residents? Location eligibility seems to be missing from the comp (or I’m blind) :)

    • Yes it is open to UK, European and USA residents. The geo eligibility is only flagged if your country is not eligible.

    • Cheers for the info {;o)

    • but my country of residence is a european country sweden in fact an eu country but says
      Sorry, this promotion is not available in your region

    • Hmm…that’s not possible according to Gleam. The geo stuff is governed by this database list – – and as you can see Sweden is definitely part of Europe. Maybe your IP is coming in from another country or something? Other than that it’s a bug, which sucks. Could you put in a bug report to Gleam at [email protected] ?

      Sorry for the hassle. Hej hej. :)

    • they are saying more or less its your fault

      The competition owner has added the “Europe” in the regional options. Unfortunately in order to get full coverage with MaxMind you need to add all the countries separately. and Unfortunately, since we rely on a third party for IP location the only thing that can be done is if the competition owner opens it up to more countries himself.


    • Hmpf…now they tell me. Sorry about that.

      I’ve now added all the countries, so Sweden should be good to go.

      Apologies Azerbaijan.

    • Sorry about this but Portugal, a country from Europe, is appearing as blocked in my region :x
      Thank you anyway for your attention

    • Cyprus and Portugal now added. Apologies.

    • Thank you very much. I’m already in the giveaway now :)

    • Well, wasnt it easier to show in terms and conditions list of participating countries? Firstly I ve read – its for Europeans too… my widget ignored that, then I ve read discussion with Swedish guy, then some notes about adding Portugal and Cyprus, then with Romanian (stated that only for western countries), … quite late, I think. I ve sent 2 emails to somebody from gleam as it was suggested to do… and he clearly answered : Email Nigel. So sorry that I want to express dissappointment – if terms are set clear, some of us would save our time.

    • I’m very sorry to have wasted your time, it’s been a bit problematical. Our next giveaway will be fully international, so I hope you’ll forgive us enough to enter at that time? :)

  • Hi folks, many apologies for the few of you who are having problems, although luckily most seem to be going fine with the widget. For those unfortunates please could you email [email protected]

    in order that the widget folk (who are great at tech support by the way) can help out? Cheers and sorry again.

    • Hey mate, i posted something here a day ago. Widget does not work in Romania. Anything that can be done about that?

    • Sorry afraid not. We will be doing international giveaways soon.

    • Oh and just to say, it’s nothing personal (I happen to love Romania, had a great trip there a few years back). It’s just for logistical reasons we’re only doing Western Europe.

    • Ah ok, no problem. I was just confused, i thought i read somewhere it’s open to Europe and since Romania is part of Europe.. well you get the point. Thanks for the replying and good luck everyone! :)

  • SOS. Help. Pick me, pick
    me! Your next winner!!! Show me the money!!! It would be a dream come true
    & means more to me than anyone else to win. I don’t have much in life. No
    money, girlfriend, friends, house, life, hope, future, etc. If I miss this one,
    I will never get a chance in my lifetime to get a fine, fine, fancy , new Lenovo 6505 :( Starving artist here desperately needs the Lenovo 6505 to work & eat again. Winner, winnner. Chicken dinner. A life
    changing experience. Top of my bucket list. Thanks for the awesomeness, the
    contest, & generosity. Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year
    is to win this contest!

  • i want to enter but the entry box didn’t open. :( i would love to have a chance to win this wonderful lap top. thank you,

  • Is this giveaway open to the U.S.? Thanks.

  • Hi, thanks for the awesome giveaway! I am also having some trouble with the widget. Most of it works fine, but I can’t get it to accept the email subscription entry even though I did subscribe. I saw your comment below to email Gleam and I did that just now. Thanks

    • Hiya, sorry about that, I’m not exactly sure what’s going on with that entry criteria, it may be something that their system is having trouble with. I hope it works out for you. Cheers.

  • signed up for newsletter but wont let me enter it

  • Thanks for the chance to WIN a Lenovo Laptop COOL

  • I’m loving this!

  • Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! Love to win.

  • I was just complaining about needing a laptop for school this September. Lets hope I’m lucky!

  • I could use this. Thanks for the chance.

  • I cant enter. Widget doesnt work, just says “Sorry, this promotion is not available…” I ve tried Chrome and Mozilla. No chance to enter. I am in EU. What to do? Never experienced something like this…

  • This would be a huge step up from my current set up!

  • Hello, very nice website i’ve just found :) Glad to be here! Regarding the competition – it seems Romania is flagged as not part of the region of the contest. Anything that can be done about that? Last I went out of my cave for groceries it was part of Europe. :)

  • I had no problem. Good luck everyone!

  • Great looking laptop.

  • this is really hard to navigate – I may have subscribed to the newletter five times?

    • I think the system will ignore anything that is out of order. :)

  • is the give away international

    • Hi there, sorry no, this one is not international. The next one will be (in a few days time).
