soooo since i didn't want to pay to get the actual "random winner picker" thing.. i decided to go with using the free random numbers. 3 recurred the most, so that person is the #1 winner, second number to repeat was 2, etc. yes.. yes, it's rather unconventional. LOL.
since i only had three orders, i decided to up the prizes and amt of winners! :)
numbers were assigned to the buyers via the order they bought items.
30% discount and free priority shipping!
20% discount and free first-class shipping!
note* since i didn't specify the manner of the extra discount in my original post, winners can use it either on future orders OR as a refund on their contest-entry-purchase.
i will be emailing you shortly :)
