Thread Details

Prizes: Vary daily

Entry Form: http://www.seventeen.com/fun-stuff/freebies/

If you don't want to sign up for a subscription, click the "Enter Now" button that's to the right of the picture of the Daily Freebie.

On the next page, scroll down until you see the picture of the magazine cover and the section to the right of it that reads: "No purchase is necessary to enter". Click on the highlighted words "click here" and that will bring you directly to the entry form that won't generate a subscription order.

Entry Period: Each day's entry must be received between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. ET.

Eligibility: Legal residents between the ages of 13 to 29 of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada at the time of entry. Void in Puerto Rico, Quebec, and where prohibited by law.

Official Rules: http://www.seventeen.com/march-fr...rules-2014

The entry form now accepts codes only in upper case, after many years of accepting the codes only in lower case. If you experience a problem entering a correctly spelled code in upper case, enter the code only in lower case.

If the entry form does not accept the code in either upper or lower case, there may be a glitch in the form. If this happens on a non-holiday weekday, wait a few hours and resubmit your entry, since these glitches are usually corrected before the end of the business day. On weekends or holiday weekdays, these glitches may not be corrected until the next business day.

"WRONG CODE" ERROR MESSAGE

If you receive the "We're sorry, but you did not enter the correct code word for this sweepstakes." error message, here are some things you can do:

1) Clear your cache
2) If you're typing in the codes, make sure you've spelled them correctly
3) If you've cut and pasted the codes from the original post in this thread, make sure you didn't accidentally include any extra spaces or characters

You can also get this error message if:

1) You do not meet the eligibility requirements
2) You did not enter the code between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. ET.
3) You did not fill in some other field on the entry form completely or correctly.
4) You did not enter the code all in uppercase letters

If none of those fixes work, that means there's a glitch in the entry form.

Any suggestions? I've tried upper case and lower case:

"We're sorry, but you did not enter the correct code word for this sweepstakes."

Use the Grand Prize word. Not sure whats up with the daily contest, as it has not been seen yet. When you click the link the top one is the Grand Prize.

I just double checked my copy of the magazine, and the codes are correct.

Here are some things you can try:

1) Clear your cache
2) If you're typing in the codes, make sure you've spelled them correctly
3) If you've cut and pasted the codes from my post, make sure you didn't accidentally include any extra spaces or characters

If none of those suggestions work, that means there's a glitch in the entry form, and it probably won't be fixed until Monday afternoon at the earliest.

You might want to leave a message on their Facebook page to let them know the entry form isn't working.

I just checked, and today's Daily Freebie is nowhere to be found.

In its place is the link to this month's Grand Prize. When I clicked on that link, everything looked okay on the entry form.

I could see a field in which to place this month's Grand Prize code, right below the birth date field.

They're obviously having major technical problems with this area of their web site, so it may take a few more days until they get it back up and running properly again.

The instructions on how to enter without subscribing are detailed in the first post in this thread at the very top of this page.

I just followed them without any problem.

Yikes - my eyes failed me! You're absolutely correct, and I've corrected my post.

Thanks for the heads up!

I tried to enter in today, but it still tells me I have the wrong thing. I've tried many of the quotes, numerous times. I even used the grand prize quote, but yet still having trouble. If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated!

Today's code is correct and there's no problem with the entry form.

Don't use the Grand Prize code to enter a Daily Freebie. That code only works for the Grand Prize.

Here are some reasons the code may be rejected:

1) You do not meet the eligibility requirements:

"Eligibility: Legal residents between the ages of 13 to 29 of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada at the time of entry. Void in Puerto Rico, Quebec, and where prohibited by law."

2) You did not enter the correct code for the the day during the daily entry period:

"Entry Period: Each day's entry must be received between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. ET."

3) You did not fill in some other field on the entry form correctly.

4) You did not enter the code all in uppercase letters

If none of those are the case in your situation, here are some other things you can try:

1) Clear your cache
2) If you're typing in the codes, make sure you've spelled them correctly
3) If you've cut and pasted the codes from my post, make sure you didn't accidentally include any extra spaces or characters
