Bash Bucks are Back!

It’s time again for Bash Bucks - they're like gift certificates redeemable at any artist booth at the Bash event. We’re thrilled to bring these back for our 4th Annual Spring Bash at the Palladium’s South Side Events Center.

The only way to get
Bash Bucks is to win one of our upcoming blog contests or TWO upcoming twitter contests. That's right, you'll have THREE chances to win!

The contests will begin today and run through May 3rd—just in time for our Cinco de Craft Party (aka the Spring Bash.)

First contest via Twitter. April 27, 2012, tweet the following by 4pm to be entered to win $10 Bash Bucks: "Hey @ I'll be at the and I want ___________." 

So what's up with the Bucks, you ask?

So, what are Bash Bucks? They are gift certificates that equal cash and are redeemable only at the current Bash event on May 5, 2012. They cannot be kept and spent at a future Bash event.

How do I win Bash Bucks? Anyone can enter to win them. To enter, participants will comment on the Etsy Dallas blog or tweet about the contest as specified in each contest’s instructions. Winners will be picked at random. Winners will claim their Bash Bucks in person the day of the current Bash. Bash Bucks cannot be mailed to the winners.

Okay I won! Now how do I spend them? Bash Bucks come in increments of $10 and spend like cash. The winner cannot receive change from Bash Bucks, and they cannot be split up to spend at two different booths. For example, if you want an $8 item, you must pay with your $10 Bash Bucks and forfeit the remaining $2 since change cannot be made. Additionally, you cannot spend that remaining $2 at a different vendor's booth.

Who's paying for these anyway? The Bash is footing the bill so we can spread the love to our wonderful shoppers and our artists.

What do they look like? The appearance of the Bash Bucks changes with each Bash event and is not publicized whatsoever. These are currency and therefore will have several unique distinguishable marks making them impossible to counterfeit and awesome to behold!

The Very Fine Print
+ Previous winners, members, and participating Bash artists ARE eligible to win.

+ If your comment or tweet is chosen, you will be required to give your full name and date of birth via email. You will be given instructions on how and where to pick up your Bash Bucks (any time during the event).
+You must reply to the congratulatory/instruction notifications by 11:59pm on May 3rd and must be present the day of the 2012 Spring Bash to collect your certificates and redeem them. Failure to respond to the email with correct information by the deadline will forfeit your right to Bash Bucks.

+ Bash bucks are not transferable. If you win them, you have to spend them. If you win, please be prepared to bring a proper ID (driver's license) to claim your Bash Bucks.

+ Bash Bucks cannot be redeemed for cash. They must be spent at one of the Spring Bash 2012 vendor booths the day of the event. You are responsible for paying any total over the value of your certificate. Any balance after purchase is surrendered to the vendor (change will not be given).

+ 2012 Spring Bucks are void after 4:59pm on May 5th, and may not be used at any other event or online.

+ Play Nice. Don't lie, cheat, or steal.
