Anyone else having trouble with the "title"? I tap it - but it won't give me the options- so can't submit..

I do believe there are cheaters out there (unfortunately) and I am glad that this company has implemented IP checking for 1 entry limits. Hopefully most ALL other sponsors will do same too.
Not complaining, just my humble opinion.

joana, I had a problem with the "drop-down" title menu. I emailed the company because it did not work for me on their newsletter email either. They indicated that everything was fine. I did manage to enter through a different link. I can't remember exactly but I think it was contest.burnbraefarms.com

Sorry, joana. Add to that URL /realeggsrealeasy. Hope that works for you.

i wonder why wee don't have to crack an egg this time

I guess cheaters only cheat on a daily basis not a weekly one. Anonymous, there are terrible things going on in the world - perhaps you should focus on those instead

And once again, having worked in a library, I see the number of people come in to use our computers who do not have computer/internet of their own. One per IP address allows only 1 person to enter a contest for a city of 56,000 people. As much good as this does for those who worry about cheaters, it also harms the people who cannot afford their own internet.

I don t believe the one entry/ IP address/per email/ per week is strictly to deter cheaters ( after all if that s your thing you will continue to cheat). I think the sponsor just wants to make it clear that only one person in a household can enter on any given week.

Kthofn62, never thought about how that would affect those who use public access computers. Thanks for giving us a different perspective to consider.

I'm not so sure that a library ("city") has only one IP address associated to it. If there was any criminal activity on a computer, they would have to be able to localise where it came from, down to the specific location and perhaps computer that was used.
Don't buy that theory. Although maybe public access computers like at a library might "mask" their IP so it doesn't show to the contest sponsor??? Don't know....not an expert...just thoughts.
and "if that s your thing you will continue to cheat"...well if it keeps it legitimate for any particular contest, then all for it. And if it makes it ANY harder for the cheaters and keeps it real for us 'play by the books' folk that's a big positive outcome. I know, I know, I'm starting to sound the that "anonymous" on here...but I just like to have a chance by hoping it's a FAIR playing field. Only then you'll win more often.

I don't get so perturbed if someone brings up cheaters sometimes. Unfortunately, it is an issue nowadays more than ever. I've read enough about what cheaters do with contesting. So I think it's good if sponsors try to do something to deter it. Anyway, that's my opinion thrown in. Merry Christmas everyone.

Im not sure how sticky companies really are about the IP rule.. a few years ago my neighbour and I signed up for brand sampler using library computers at the same branch...we both received them. And BrandSampler website specifically states about a hundred times that it is only one submission per IP..?

Public access computers in a library, whether 4 stations or 15 stations are served with one IP address. And library's do not mask their IP address. The one's masking their IP address are usually hiding something, or trying to get something from somewhere illegally ie. American Netflix in Canada.
