Squares FAQs

What are squares?

Squares are basically mini ads. When you create a square, you can add a link and a description so other users can connect with your product, service, or other media. Clicks are unlimited and you pay only to place your square. You can also select multiple squares to attract more attention to your squares. Squares are also used to enter giveaways!

What can I promote or advertise using my squares?

You can promote or advertise anything* from your business, product, service, cause, or yourself! As long as it does not violate our zero tolerance policy of inappropriate content, you can promote anything you'd like.

*User content must comply with our zero tolerance of inappropriate content policy. Click here for details.

How do I create a multi-square?

Simply click and drag your mouse over any square area to select a larger number of squares for a larger image placement. Each square selected is a separate and individual entry into the giveaway. If you select a 3x3 area, you will have a 3x3 sized square and 9 entries into the giveaway!

What happens if I violate the inappropriate content policy?

You will be banned from the site forever. We want clean content for everyone to enjoy. Please be kind and courteous to your fellow users, and yourselves. Just use good judgment and everyone will be happy!

How many Squares can I place on a particular listing grid?

As many as you'd like! If spots are available, you can place a square on them. We encourage creativity! Try different images and messages to see what works best for you. You can use the information to learn more about potential customers! Some squares may be clicked more than others and we want to help you test your market. SpinClicks has been designed to help small businesses test their advertising at an affordable rate, so use it!

How much do spin credit packages cost?

Ad packages start at just $10.00. See the complete pricing guide by clicking the spin icon at the top of any page.

Is there a per-click premium or fee when someone clicks on my square?

No! You only pay to place your square, there are no additional fees. We do our best to keep the cost affordable to help you gain the most exposure possible.

How long do the ads stay posted on listing pages?

Any time before a grid fills up completely is extra promo time, so get in early! If you’re the first one to place a square, and the grid takes 5 days to fill up, you get 5 days worth of visibility, click-ability, and exposure at no extra cost! Get noticed early!

Once all grid spots are filled, the drawing countdown jumps to 60 minutes, and the action starts. At the end of the countdown period, the drawing will occur and the grid will be reset to new (empty) spots. All completed giveaways will be posted to the winners list page for a minimum period of four years.

Can I edit a square after I have placed it?

Yes. Simply click the "edit" icon on any of your squares to edit or replace them. The "edit" icon is only displayed if you are logged into your account. Editing or switching squares does not affect your entry into a giveaway if you have opted-in to participate in the drawing.

Note: All squares can be placed upon creation, however squares cannot be viewed by others until verified by our content review team. We do this to prevent inappropriate content. Squares are usually verified within a couple of hours after creation but may take longer depending on volume at any given time. We go as fast as we can, 24/7!

Where do the prizes come from?

We use Amazon for most of our prize fulfillment. We also carry inventory and in such an event we fulfill these prizes directly.

What happens after I win a prize?

If you have won a prize, you will receive an email notification. Once you have received the email notification, you will need to login into your account and complete the "Winners Affidavit". This form is used to confirm and verify your identity and eligibility. The "Winners Affidavit" must be completed within forty eight (48) hours from the time the email was sent to you. Once the affidavit is complete, we will ship your prize to the address on file. It is very important to keep your shipping address and contact information current.

Do I have to pay anything to receive a prize that I have won?

Nope! If you are the winner of a giveaway, we will pay any sales tax and standard shipping costs* associated with the delivery of your prize. If you opt for a gift card instead of the actual prize, the gift card will be for the ARV (Approximate Retail Value) of the item you have won not including sales tax and shipping...and the gift card will of course be delivered free either by email or regular mail. ARV information is located toward the top of every "Spin Page". Please note it is very important that your user profile is always current and up to date!

* Winners are responsible for any local, state, and federal income taxes that apply.

How can I enter a giveaway without paying for two spin credits?

We provide a variety of ways to receive two free credits on the "How it Works" page. We change these every once in a while as we come up with new ideas. Alternatively you can enter by mail. You can find the details in the Official Rules located at the bottom in the footer of any page.

What happens if an item I have won is out of stock?

We try to list items that have constant supply, but in the event that an item you have won is out of stock, we will send you an Amazon Gift Card for the ARV (Approximate Market Value) of the prize you have won (gift cards do not include sales tax or shipping). You can wait to buy the item once it's back in stock or use the gift card at Amazon for a different item of your choice!

Do I have to pay income taxes on prizes that I have won?

We all have to pay our taxes! If you win an item, you'll need to complete a "Winners Affidavit". You are responsible to pay any applicable local, state and federal income taxes on any prizes won. If a user wins prizes valued at $600.00 (Six Hundred Dollars) or more in any single calendar year, the user will be required to complete a "Winners Affidavit" which includes form "W-9" information. We are legally required to submit, file, and send you a form 1099 for that calendar year. See the Official Rules here. But don't worry, it's not as complicated as it sounds and only takes a couple of minutes!
