**Effective October 1, 2016, we have changed the number of contest winners. We now award one winner in each of 9 different tip contests.

While the winning recipe is ultimately an editorial decision, the popularity of the recipe and the number of thumbs ups on ThriftyFun, likes on Facebook, pins on Pinterest and success on other social network sites factor into our decision.

General Contest Rules:

  • The goal of our contests is to gather as much useful information as possible to share with the ThriftyFun community. By submitting a contest entry, you are giving ThriftyFun permission to publish the submission. Submissions can be edited, combined or moved to a different contest, as determined by our editorial staff.
  • We are looking for original and unique unpublished content. Exceptions may be made for personal blogs, at the editor's discretion. All text, including step by step instructions must be written by you and include your own photos. Submitting copyrighted material is prohibited. This includes images found on Pinterest, Facebook or other social networking sites.

  • If a qualifying submission is selected for publication and is eligible for rewards, we will send you payment via email (Amazon or PayPal) in amounts stated on the contest page at the time that you enter the contest.
  • Non-US Residents:If you live outside the U.S., you must have a PayPal account in order to receive payments. Only U.S. residents can redeem our Amazon gift cards. At the time of entering your contest entry, you will be prompted to review your payment preferences. Please double check that your email is correct for the payment option you choose.
  • Recipe submissions require a minimum of one photo of the finished recipe to be published. Additional photos of the instructions or supplies are encouraged and could increase your chances of being selected for publication or winning our contest.
  • If any contest doesnt receive the minimum number of submissions (10), the contest will be extended for an additional month.

    Submission Tips:

    • No spam please, just useful information.
    • Don't submit the same information more than once, or in more than one category.
    • The more you personalize your entry, the better.
    • Ideas that have been previously published on ThriftyFun are less likely to be posted than original ideas.
    • Multiple submissions in the same week may result in short delays in publishing.
    • Links to other sites are not eligible to win contests. If you'd like to share a link to an interesting site or idea, just submit the link with an explanation of why you think it would be valuable to our community.
    • Limit your submission to no more than 5 per day. Not every contest submission is selected for publication. You will receive an email when your submission is published so you can share it on social networking sites and encourage your friends and family to rate or comment on it. Our editors make the final decision on the winning entries.
