    Thank you for answering my question. It is ok. I love your blog!

    I, too, am frustrated that so often companies treat Facebook users as the only customers of any worth. Facebook's terms of service, pathetic security, and the flood of unavoidable BS users are forced to sift through on a daily basis makes it entirely unusable. I'm not going to put my identity and my sanity at risk just so I can get coupons. There's no excuse for a good social media team to ignore safer/more secure social networking options and include all their customers.

    When WRAL starts including all their viewers - not just the ones who are willing to put up with the garbage that is Facebook - they'll have my attention. Till then, I'll be content to just keep an eye on the smart shopper column as an "outsider".

    By the way - I logged in to make this comment using Google+. Oh, the irony.

    This contest is indeed an anomaly. Usually, we offer a variety of entry options when we give away tickets, goodies or other prizes.

    In this instance, we are looking to boost the specific Facebook audience. If you are not interested, you can pass on this one.

    You'll find all of our active contests here: And you can even subscribe for a monthly email update with all of your chances to win.

    Sorry Tonya and Luv - the only way to enter this contest is through Facebook. I did not set up this contest - it is being run through the WRAL TV folks. With that said, some of the best coupons are from Facebook these days so you may want to consider opening an account. Plus, you may win a $1000 grocery gift card!
