*Expired* Burt’s Bees FREE Lip Balm Sweeps

by Freebies4Mom on May 27, 2009 6:59 am

Update: Now that the giveaway is live I’ve got more details! They are giving away 25,000 lip balms in 25 days. It’s a sweepstakes because 1,000 are randomly given away starting each day at some random time between 9 am and Noon EST. Sorry for all the confusion, it took awhile before those official rules would open up for me to read the details.

A little bee told me that starting at 9 am Burt’s Bees is giving away 25,000 Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balms in celebration of their 25th Anniversary. Thanks goes to Champagne Living for buzzing in my ear!

The link is not working yet, so maybe this is central time.

Madly59 – I finally was able to open and read the Official Rules – it’s a sweeps! So 1,000 are randomly given away each day.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

I’m really confused as when I clicked the link they said they were out for the day…so how can it be a sweeps? It seems more like the Mars promo (until gone)…

Anissa – People are still winning this, I think they just didn’t make it clear. It’s not a first-come first-serve giveaway like Mars according to the Official Rules. When you get the message to try again tomorrow it means you’ve used up your one entry for today.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

It says that the 1,000 have already been given out for the day! There’s no way to register. I guess those of us on the West coast will have to be online pretty early to get this freebie. Thanks for the goodie! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the link! I did it about 10 CST. The first attempt errored out on me. On the second attempt I got one!

I also got the “all gone” memo, but it also said to try between 9am and noon.

Do they send you coupon or do you have to print it?

Reply

Heather May 27, 2009 at 6:59 pm

Yes, they will mail you a coupon if you win one!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

not sure if I have to register again each day I go to the site? or are they chosing winners from the list of already registered fans? I just clicked and a window came up saying they weren't ready yet & to check back.thanks for any clarification.

When I went to the website earlier, they said they were not ready and to check back. When I checked back about a minute later, the website stated they had already given out the 1,000 for today. I guess I will try again tomorrow.

I believe you that it’s a sweep, but the website sure is misleading as it told me “the early bee gets the balm” “we’ve already given out all 1,000″Very confusing…

Gah! They claim to start at 9am EST. But they weren’t even open after 10:30 when I last checked. And now it’s all gone.

Hilary May 28, 2009 at 11:34 am

I know, this is the whackiest giveaway ever! As of 10:30 this morning, it said that they hadn’t even started yet today, but now they’re gone. When did it even start? Geez, crazy!

Anna S. May 28, 2009 at 11:50 am

It started at 10:45 and they were gone in 3 minutes.However I got mine.

Jeez!!! does that mean one has to be there for like 3 hours to get that lip balm?

Its on now ….QUICK

This is their new message/explaination “The giveaway starts anytime between 9 a.m. and 12 noon EDT but no one knows exactly when! To equal the odds and give you the fairest chance at a free balm, we’ve randomized the giveaway to start anytime between 9 a.m. and 12 noon EDT. It could be anytime. For instance — it may be 9:15 AM one day, 10:25 AM the next, or 11:51 AM the day after! We don’t know either – and that’s what makes it fun! And if you don’t get it one day, you’ll get your chance. The balm giveaway goes through June 20, 2009.”

I got lucky yesterday. I kept refreshing the page every 10 minutes or so and finally got one. Do you know if you can win more than once? This is a very time-consuming (and potentially frustrating) freebie. I'm not sure it's worth my time–though I do love my lip balm–I never leave the house without it!

Heather June 5, 2009 at 8:55 am

Glad you got it Jessica! You can only win once!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom
