Referral comp etiquette

There are lots of referral comps these days and we're lucky to have our Lottos group to help with referrals and bonus entries.
Most people do the right thing, however, some don't. It's just common courtesy to use the last person's link on the list before posting yours. Please don't post your link if you're not prepared to use someone else's link on the list.

Iím pretty sure I posted something about this issue a while ago as I too notice that often the previous link is either overlooked and possibly next member uses an otherwise preferred members link which I agree totally with you Smiley that itís a tad mean spirited etiquette.

To reiterate I always!! use the link above so that member has equal benefit but I have noticed on a few occasions over the years another member may have used it at the very same time as myself therefore creating that gap/lag in the referrals so that situation is out of oneís control.

Happy referring lovelies👉 👈🙂👍

I was getting my links overlooked and dreading doing the referral comps but now I go my merry way and don't bother with the referrals but enter the comp anyway.

How is it known that someone hasn't used the previous person's link? I think I might have posted my link at some point without saying that I'd use the previous person's, even though I had, so is it possible someone else has done the same? I suppose I thought it went without saying... although I usually do say.

To try and avoid gap/lag I try do referral comps really fast, so someone doesn't get missed. As stated, though, unavoidable at times.

Most referral comps, but not all, will give you a summary of your entries.
You usually have to click on a button and it will then list the different ways you've entered and how many entries you've received.

For example, the current Rumble Coffee, when I click on the 'View Entries' button, it gives me the following summary:

Entering +1
FOLLOW us on Instagram +50
LIKE us on Facebook +50
VISIT our Website +10
Referrals +5
Total 116

So you can see that I've currently received 5 entries from Referrals. This particular comp gives you 5 entries per referral used, so 1 person has used my referral link. That would be the person after me on the Lottos thread.

I agree. I never usually go back and check but just noticed it happened to me. XXXX said they used my link but clearly didn't!

same here. I just thought i'd check. Most had had people enter but there were 2 comps where people had said they'd used my entry and actually hadn't. That's fairly <b>[Censored]</b>ty of them if it was on purpose.

On more than one occasion, actually quite a few, I have sent my daughter, who was sitting next to me on her phone, my link and watched her enter through my link but it was never added to my entry. It has made me very skeptical of the software that these companies use. I have also of course seen where the entry does get added so I just roll with it, I enter with the link I acknowledge and think that if someone uses my link it is a 50/50 chance it might get counted and now I don't even check back. I mark the comp as entered and never go back

This!! Have noticed it too, I rarely bother with referrals now and donít really see many winners out of them either so makes me dubious.

I always use the link above if I enter

Thanks for posting Smiley. I used to get hung up on it but no more.

I just have fun entering. One would hope people don't do it on purpose.

I have got comps mixed up before when doing speedy entries, accidentally.

Karma will catch up with those who repeatedly do the wrong thing. We hope.

HAPPY COMPING EVERYONE! ;););););)
