Is the MakeUseOf giveaway program work limited to the US and the UK?

Erlis D March 20, 2014

Hello there!

I would like to know if the giveaway program applies to other countries than US (or UK), or does it work for everyone in the world?
I know quite well that it works with software (since I’ve won two softwares ’till now), but does it work also with hardware (like mobile phones for example)?

    In case of software,you might be getting the keys and you had to download the electronic copy of software.But the hardware has to pass through customs and it's a place where it gets stucked.

    MUO doesn't wants any such hassles for its readers as well as for itself for obvious reasons.

    There is a link to the "Official Rules" at every giveaway.

      So basically anyone can win a price, but when refused to ship in your destination, you have to handle by yourself the shipping... That's what is said at the rules at least.

      Or you could forfeit the prize, I guess.
      I believe the best way to look at it is that they are unlikely to ship a $5-15 prize to a destination resulting in $80 shipping costs.

    i think hardware also unless there are restrictions imposed. MakeUseOf giveaways are open to readers worldwide*.
