  • You must be a minimum of 18 years old to submit and participate in our drawings. If it is discovered that any winner is under the age of 18 after the drawing, you will forfeit the prize.
  • Non-Subscribe + 5 subscribers: Entry is required for each giveaway we hold. Your entry provides you with one entry for the current drawing only (if you submit within the times specified below). You are required to enter for each drawing you wish to participate in. Your entry does NOT automatically roll into the next drawing. Subscribe + 5 subscribers receive automatic entry into all Giveaways for the duration of their subscription. One entry per person. Duplicate entries will be purged prior to drawing.
  • You must submit your entry based on the dates/timelines listed here in the rules for it to be eligible for the current drawing.
  • All prizes valued at $600 and above will be taxes, by law, at the rate of 28.5%. 24% is required by the IRS. 4.5% is required by the State of Michigan. These rates are subject to change based on IRS and State of Michigan rules.
  • There may be some drawings where LIVE. LOVE. LOCAL. MICHIGAN™ and our parent company, Thrust Media, LLC, cover the taxes of the prize with a cash portion added to the Giveaway. This will be announced if it is part of the Giveway.
  • All winners will receive a 1099 at the end of the year from Thrust Media, LLC to submit with their tax documents.
  • Winners of each Giveaway will be notified via email and by phone. Winners have 60 days to claim their prize or will forfeit the prize.
  • Proof of age will be required prior to the prize being distributed.
  • All entrants receive the same odds of winning with one entry accepted per person, including Subscribe + 5 subscribers.
  • When we announce winners, we will announce first name and last initial and the city they live. We will not disclose the full name of any winner unless the winner grants us permission to do so. Sadly, we live in a day and age where safety needs to considered in these circumstances.
  • SPEND LOCAL MICHIGAN™ Giveaways: Our monthly SPEND LOCAL MICHIGAN™ Giveaways are held monthly on the 15th beginning August 15, 2023. We draw winners live on social media. We will publicly announce the time of the drawing each month prior to the drawing. Non-purchase entries are accepted from 12:01am on the 10th of each month through 11:59pm on the 14th of each month for that month's drawing. Entries outside of this timeframe will be purged from the drawing. One entry per eligible person will be accepted. Subscribe + 5 subscribers receive automatic entry into all of our monthly SPEND LOCAL MICHIGAN™ Giveaways for the duration of their subscription.
  • Pop-Up Giveaways: Pop-Up Giveaways provide little notice for entry and drawing; thus, the phrase Pop-Up Giveaway. On any random day, we may announce a Pop-Up Giveaway happening sometime during that week. Once announced, non-subscribers have the opportunity to enter the drawing until the moment we draw the winner live on social media. Note that we will give a minimum of 24-hours notice for non-subscriber entries, but do not guarantee and will not announce a time/date when the entry period will close. Entries close when we go live. Duplicate entries will be purged prior to the drawing. One entry per eligible person. Subscribe + 5 subscribers receive automatic entry into every Pop-Up Giveaway for the duration of their subscription.
  • Share the Love Social Media Giveaways: Our Share the Love Social Media Giveaways are held randomly, yet frequently and are specifically designed for our social media followers who share our Made in Michigan love! We announce these Giveaways on social media and provide our followers with a timeframe to share our Giveaway post with their followers. Entry for the Share the Love Giveaway happens by tagging us in the post @livelovelocalmi for Facebook and/or Tiktok, and @livelovelocalmichigan on Instagram and/or Threads. Social media followers are NOT required to be Michigan residents in order to enter the Giveaway and be eligible to win. Winners will be announced LIVE at a specified date and time and will be notified via a tag in our social media winner announcement and through private message. Winners have 30 days to claim their prize. The same rules apply regarding prizes valued over $600 as indicated above. State taxes may vary depending on the state of residency for the winner.
