Prize Guidelines

  • Your prize should appeal to your readership.
  • All prizes must have a minimum value of $100 and a maximum of value of $5000.
  • Electronics, photography gear and other name brand prizes perform well overall.
  • Destination prizes also do well, especially with a high dollar value or for a popular destination.
  • Gift certificates for popular products and services attracted many donors — iTunes gift cards, Amazon gift certificates, etc.  Be sure that the winner is able to purchase a complete product or service on the site without spending additional money. For example, a $200 discount towards a $2000 dollar product or service will not do well.
  • Gift baskets and prizes composed of multiple items do not do well. Contact us if you are thinking of offering this type of prize.
  • Items with a brand or logo other than the manufacturer’s do not do well. Please contact us if you are thinking of offering this type of prize.

The fine print:

  • You are responsible for making sure that the prize winner receives their prize. If you have procured a gift certificate or voucher, have it sent to you in advance so that you can carefully review the fine print.
  • You must fully describe the prize to your readers. You must publish any limitations or costs that the winner might incur (for example taxes or other fees on a free hotel room).
  • The prize is offered in exchange for promotional consideration on your blog. Passports with Purpose is unable to provide tax receipts.
