I have been following gearhog for well over a year a year now. In that time, they have run a giveaway nearly every weekend, sometimes with multiple prizes. Of that, I would be surprised is 1/4 of the prizes are actually attributed to anyone via their Facebook page.

I'm not calling BS yet, but whats up with that?

This is your main hook for driving traffic to your site. Personally, when I don't see winners (especially when I don't win), you loose credibility. I have made purchases through your weekday deals, but I am highly unlikely to refer actual friends to the site, for fear that it will go tits up and screw them on a purchase.
