 Policies:

We love being able to share about products we love and products that are safe for families. We also love being able to host giveaways for our readers, because we know they're hard-working mommas, wives, grandmas, aunts, and friends and they deserve something special!

Please review our giveaway policies below:

Our giveaways will always have entries via the comment section of the said post, or via an entry form created by Rafflecopter, which we manage ourselves. Any information you provide us with will not be shared without your knowledge.

MBP Giveaways are open to US residents only, unless otherwise stated on the Rafflecopter.

You CANNOT win more than one giveaway within a 30 day period, even if you intend to give the prize to someone else. Have them enter for themselves.

If you do not comply with the entry rules, your entry for the giveaway will be voided.
The winner will be chosen at random via random.org, and notified via e-mail, as well as announced on our blog and on our Facebook page. The winner has 48 hours to respond to the e-mail we send them and supply their shipping address and choice of prize (if applicable). If the winner does not respond within 48 hours of being contacted, they will forfeit their prize and a winner will be re-drawn.

If You Win a Giveaway on MBP:

Mommy's Block Party IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for shipping prizes to the giveaway winner, unless otherwise stated in a disclosure at the bottom of the giveaway post. We are responsible for passing along the winner's shipping information to the giveaway sponsor, and after that, prize shipment and delivery is out of our hands. If you have not received your prize within 30 days of being notified that you have won a giveaway, you are welcome to e-mail us, and we will try to get in touch with the sponsor and check on the status of your prize shipment. Please allow between 4-6 weeks for prize delivery, and in some cases (because we often work on campaigns), prize delivery can take up to 90 days. Mommy's Block Party does not sponsor giveaways- we are the hosts- the girls in the middle, who correspond between our readers and the sponsors.

Company/Sponsor Review and Giveaway Policies

-Reviews are FREE of charge.

-We reserve the right to refuse the review if you send a product that was not agreed upon.

-A product is required for all reviews and will not be returned.

-Please allow 3 to 8 weeks for your review to be completed.

-If you have a specific date in mind for the review to be posted, we will try to work with you to accommodate your request.

-Sample sizes are not allowed. We need a full-sized product to adequately test out the product.  If you send a sample you will not be reviewed.

-We are not responsible for any shipping costs. Any packages shipped COD will be returned to sender.

-You are encouraged to add a discount or coupon code to the review which will be added at no charge. Discounts that require a separate post will be subject to a fee.

-If we have negative review, it will be posted! Please be confident in your product before sending it to us! We try to focus on the positive things, but not everything can have a completely positive review!

-DO NOT send us any items that are meant to be used for a giveaway. They will not be returned to you- we will keep them. We will not be inconvenienced by having to mail out your prizes, nor do we have the funds to pay for the shipping.

We are happy to work with companies and businesses that would like to feature products related to moms, babies, families, pets and home living. Our trade program states that in exchange for a product to review and possibly one to offer as a giveaway, we will display your button or banner for 30 days from the time we post our review of your product. We do not care to post negative reviews, but we owe it to our readers to be honest. If we take issue with your product, we will contact you regarding the matter at hand. We are happy to comply with your contest entry rules, as well.

Please contact us if you'd be interested in featuring your product on Mommy's Block Party!
