    Hi, thanks for your comments and feedback.

    Most of the competitions we run have a ‘shop to activate’ policy and while this is made clear after entering, we do normally feature this on the blog entry form too so potential entrants understand this before entering.

    Unfortunately in this instance, this did not happen – an oversight on our part, sorry! We’re very grateful for you bringing this to our attention.

    We have now updated the competition entry form to explain this clearly. The reason we choose this mechanic is to encourage entrants to use Give as you Live when they shop online to raise money for their chosen charity.

    For those that have taken offence, we can only apologise and ensure this mistake won’t be repeated again in the future.

    If you would like to discuss this in more detail, please contact us at help@giveasyoulive.com or call a member of our Customer Service team on 0870 005 5050.

    Totally agree with all the above mentioned. GaYL should learn from this!

    The 1st T&C: “Information on how to enter forms part of the terms of entry. Entry into the competition is deemed acceptance of these terms and conditions”. The email merely said “one lucky Give as you Live shopper” (it did NOT say WHEN the shopping should happen). There is nothing is in email or the T&Cs about the £15 spend AFTER entry so, if this is the intention, I don’ t think it’s valid.
    Everyclick should respond to this quickly – whatever the intention, it has been badly managed.

    Hmmm got it exactly right. It seems cleat that the sign-up was designed to get people filling in all the blanks before they were informed of all the terms. Transparency is the key.

    I agree that this is an underhand way of getting peoples details for marketing purposes. It is not the way to run your charity giving page.

    Disappointing. We all know its for good causes which is all the more reason to get this right. Considering most people’s issue with giving to charity is the lack of transparency – it’s common sense to make your marketing transparent to stand any chance of changing perception in the industry. A good example of bad marketing. You should never leave people feeling ‘deceived for a good cause’. Its an oxymoron.

    I don’t think anyone would have a problem spending £15 if it was stipulated prior to submitting details. With it only being mentioned after it is misleading and just puts people off entirely. Just be open about it and you won’t upset your clients.

    Probably just another opportunity (Hotel database) to send us more spam.

    Well, after I read the comments, I’m not entering the ‘competition’.
    I tried first not to click giving permission, but it doesn’t enter you into ‘competition’.
    Might even stop using gayl & use another charity site!

    I feel deceived! I thought as an existing user of (shopper through) giveasyoulive I was qualified to enter the competition. it is only AFTER you have taken the time and trouble to input all your details and hit enter that you discover your efforts are valueless UNLESS you spend a minimum of a further £15 through them within ten days! My opinion of giveasyoulive has gone down immensely.

    Seems unfortunate that the terms and conditions do not state that you must spend a minimum amount of money in the future to qualify for this competition. Neither did the email or this web page.

      Yes – as you say (it only springs up once you click Enter Now!)
