    how do ik if i win i never got any emails from popular woodworking

  • lutmd1

    Why do you make it so difficult to register. I filled in the info and I get a message to Log in to your existing account and that my email has already been used to log in to Gleam. Please log in to your linked account. I am logged into my account and I still get the same message. I have signed up for these before but this year is very frustrating.

  • Ray Bellis

    My registry of chances/entries was zero’d- out today. It was fun while it lasted.

    • Collin Knoff

      I can still see your entries in the system. Are you still showing zero entries on your end?

      • gaboury

        All my entries have also been zero’d out. and I can no longer find the entry links.

        • Collin Knoff

          I’m still showing all of your entries, including today. It’s just a very unfortunate glitch.

    • dsokodrum

      I should have 134 entries. But only have 34. What good is it to have multiple ways to enter if you only get ONE a day? Must be a rigged contest.

  • David Hykes

    I have now been fooling with your site for about 15 minutes trying to regisster for your prize drawing. Yesterday it took about three or four clicks. Today it doesn’t recognize that I regesstered yesterday – it shows 0 plays. If you are going tomake the game difficult then I don’t want to play.

    Check mark says “entry confirmed”
    Hovered and the words “done you got one entry”
    And I thought this was all I had to do
    Apparently not,
    We also have to click “Click for Daily Entry”
    Please fire your webmaster. They lack common sense and are poor at communication.
    End users should not have to guess or try to read the webmaster’s mind.
    You need to separate the method to enter from the links to other websites.
    That is messy looking and not professional.

    How do you know who wins?


    I had some problems a couple of times . I had registered for a couple of days and then it no longer recognize my email so I had to re register . Now I’m able to enter every day. I also had to change my cookies to allow the site. So the problem was on both ends mine and theirs.

    So I suggest that you check your setting it might just be operator error. Remember measure twice cut once. Good Luck.

    1- Upon entering, there is only 1 daily entry each day afterwards.

    2- If it is not loading, then you have some sort of block installed on phone/pc. Just below the info it might show a message, and provide a link to where you can go to Gleam directly to enter.

    3- I’m not sure what luxury your life might afford you, but this is a free entry contest. As such, you might consider being a bit kinder in your whining. Be grateful to be given the chance. If an issue develops and you can’t do something, then it is on your end, and should be considered.

    You only havw 1 entry per day after entering the list of other options. The odds are EXTREMELY low in winning, and not in anyone’s favor. So just enjoy it, and be thankful just for the chance. If you lack the Patience needed for something like this, then your woodworking must be a nightmare of an experience.

    Lastly, if it’s causing you such suffering, then be grateful that your life is so amazing. I wish “not having the ability to enter”, (due to circumstances on your own end) were my biggest issue in life and caused me the suffering many seem to be feeling in this comment section.

    Have fun… if you came here to win, then you might want to look for something with better odds. 🙂

      ………….. *slow clap* ………….

      Lol, well said 🙂


    what kind of contest is this? there is no way to enter. something is wrong with your web site and it appears it’s been messed up for a while! who’s taking home the prizes?


    Unfortunately you’ve made it nearly impossible for me and others to register to win. I’ve got 8 entries from my initial signup and for the life of me am unable to make additional daily entries as promised. I’m guessing that makes you nothing more than CROOKS!!!

  • dce

    I do not see the were to enter the “33” sweepstakes either. I see no”log in using” either.

  • Mike Johannes

    I can not locate the spot on your web page for the 33 Days for Dad Sweepstakes. How do I locate the area to apply each day?

    • Collin Knoff

      It’s right below the collage near the top of the page, right where it says “log in using”.

    • ki4jil

      If you run an extension like Privacy Badger it will hide the registration form. Disable it for this site,

    • Richard Stimler

      Cleared cookies, and now I can log on. But cannot find any of the clues listed in other responses. Have entered this in past. Why did they make it so difficult this year?

  • craigsbradford

    Thanks for being such a valuable woodworking resource.
