I don't have a facebook page either...kind of a bummer that we don't get a chance to win because of that!

I have one that I keep hidden so people leave me alone but I don't like Facebook. Maybe it's an 'age' thing but what I want to know is, what's up with being liked? I'm serious, I don't understand what being liked does on FB. I personally wouldn't like something just because someone else does.

But heck, I liked them and even registered. I love free stuff.

Another "anti-Facebooker" here.

Perhaps Mr. Beer will provide a web link for the non-Facebooking borg to enter the contest.

Hint-hint! ;)

All the greater the chance for us Facebookers to win. Not that I'm a big fan of Facebook but if that's what it takes to win, bring it.

Whenever I click the link it just takes me to my FB homepage, and when I search for Mr.Beer in the search bar on FB nothing comes up for it :smash:

Yep, no "F" book here either. I'm not much of a people person :P

+1 to that!

The funny thing is that I keep getting these emails from F-Book that there are people who want to "friend" me. I figure it can't be any one I really know because if they really knew me they wouldn't want to be my friend. :P

Cool idea No Facebook here either, working as an IT dude the last thing I want is to do is get on my PC at home,.. and spend useless hours with social media.

Please post a link that does not include social media.

The purpose of the like button is when you "like" something, your Facebook "friends" can see it on their wall. So its used basically as an advertising tool where many companies have promotions like Mr. Beer is with this. It creates exposure to potential customers.

Facebook is an evil thing, but I see many sides to it. I mean, I did just win their first giveaway on it....not to toot my own horn. However, my mother is in her 70's and uses it to see the family pictures some of us post because we're far away. I set her account up so that nobody bothers her except family.

I use it to stay in contact with some of my military friends because phone service is often limited and it's easier for them to hop online.

If you set it up right it can be quite useful, but that's just my two cents.

Well, I was as much against FB as anyone here for the longest. Even after breaking down and signing up, I still only visit my own page once or twice a year. I just signed up so I could see things my family wanted me to see on their page once in a while.

Anyway, I went and entered the contest, and saw that when you get someone else to enter you get bonus entries. So I talked my wife and kids into each entering once so I could get those bonus entries.

Last night my wife tells me she got an email saying she won a kit. Hey, I like FB now.

BTW, the photo in the contest entry banner shows an impressive lineup with about 10 refills, a hat, shirt, pint glasses and more, but the email says it's a Premium kit. Will have to wait until it arrives to really know what's in it. Whatever it is, it's more than we had before.

C'mon guys, seriously?

They are giving away Premium Kits not what is pictured.

They don't even have a kit with all that stuff in it - I looked.

True. The picture in the contest entry banner is the same picture that the main web site uses for the overall category of kits. I could not find any one kit that has all that stuff in it, either. The closest thing to it is the Brewmasters Ultimate kit, with everything in the picture except 4 recipe refills instead of 10 and 8 bottles instead of 16. Now that's a mighty fine kit right there.

Free is FREE I don't care how you spell it or how it is pictured...Mr Beer is the bomb giving away anything for just liking their FB page. If I win, I will be as surprised as to what is in the package I receive as to just winning anything...Did I mention FREE?

You got that right. Anything is better than nothing. And you just can't beat free.

BTW, I think it's amazing that there are over 12,000 people who 'liked' the Mr Beer FB page, and the first two winners were from our Borg. We got the best luck around.

I was not complaining - just trying to set straight people who keep posting, "Oh boy, look at that kit....I entered!!"

I didn't get the impression that you were complaining, there, Wings. I read your post just like you said, and I was also coming from the same place as you were. It seemed folks might have gotten the idea that the photo represented the kit that would be won in the drawings. Like you, I figured it was good to clear that up to avoid any bad surprises later on. Seemed like the decent thing to do at the time. If not, may we both burn in hell together for all eternity. Hope they at least have beer down there.

I'm not sure when mine will show up, I'm just grateful I won something for a change. Apparently instead of trying my luck at a casino, I should just enter beer related raffles...lol

Ronald Belford Scott said it best:

Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too
I'm on the highway to hell............

That makes two of us. I've never been particularly lucky at winning anything before. But apparently when it comes to beer related matters, that's where my luck comes into play as well. My wife won a kit on Friday and I won a kit on Saturday. They said I had the most referrals so far. I know, I know, Facebook is evil, but the whole world is evil, anyway, so I might as well drink more beer!

Oh no, not at all. I'm the only one in my family with bonus entries for referrals. And I only had four of them. My wife, daughter and son-in-laws all made one entry each, and my wife won a kit with her one entry. I'm shocked myself about that.

But if you do click to throw that entry button on your own FB page and tell your friends and family to enter from your page, you'll get bonus entries, too. Nothing to lose, right? I think there's still 10 more days of drawings left. Good luck!

Don't be too hard on them for not being interested. Not everyone shares our joy for brewing. I have to confess, I've ignored requests from my friends and family many times in the past to share in their passions. Seems the better I got at getting interested in them, the more interested they got in me. But it took a lot of years for me to learn that. Never give up trying. I hope some of them reconsider and throw you a bone. And if they don't, there's gonna be many, many more chances for you to win something in life. Hopefully something big. ;)

I know I got 2 referrals (mom and dad), but that is probably all I'll get.

I have to say, I've been a hermit all my life, but when I started telling people they had a chance to win a free beer kit, I was shocked how many people were interested. They've seen me all excited about brewing. Most of them, if they didn't want to brew, knew a family member they thought would love it. I think I got 8 people from work to enter. I sure didn't need the bonus entries myself. I'll just be thrilled to see a new brewer come out of it.

I posted the following message with my share:

Go ahead and enter!!! Hey if you don't want the kit you can alway give it to me and be able to X off one name from your christmas list!

So far my mom, dad, brother, 2 aunts, wife, son, daughter and 3 friends have entered! Does this mean they love me and want to give me something I really want for christmas or are they being cheap by trying to win my christmas present for free? HMMMMM........ :dry:
