Cotton Bureau Turns 2

Cotton Bureau has officially entered the Terrible Twos! But unlike a normal two-year-old, we're not going to throw a tantrum and demand ice cream...instead, we're giving away fun gifts! Here's the deal: anyone who buys a shirt today (midnight to midnight Eastern Time) gets entered into a drawing to win an Apple Watch (the aluminum one with the rubber band...we'd have to start selling our plasma to afford any of the other ones). But there are twists! If you buy multiple shirts, you get multiple entries in the drawing. And for every hundred shirts we sell today, we'll give away another watch. If we sell 500 shirts, we'll give away 5 watches. It's our birthday, but you get the presents!

It's been an awesome run so far, and we thank each and every one of you who's even thought about buying a shirt the past two years. As a token of our appreciation, here are some contest rules for you to read.

The contest happens today, Friday, June 12. Specifically from midnight to midnight, Eastern Time. If you buy a shirt 20 minutes past midnight tonight and ask to be included in the drawing, we're going to act really disappointed and probably shake our heads at you.

This contest is only open to customers in the United States. Sorry, the rest of the world. We'd love to open this up to everyone, but international contests are a nightmare.

Each entrant is limited to five (5) entries. If you buy 5 shirts, you get 5 entries. If you buy 15 shirts, you get...5 entries.

We forgot to mention this one yesterday, but Mystery Shirts don't count. That said, Mystery Shirts are fun and cheap and you should still buy one.

If you win, here's what you'll get: an Apple Watch Sport, in your choice of colors, and we'll even let you pick whether you want 38mm or 42mm.

We'll contact the winners on Friday, June 19. If you win, please allow a few weeks for us to ship you the goods.

We retain the right to bounce anyone from the contest. We're doing a nice thing here, so don't be a jerk and try to game the system. If we notice anything fishy happen, you're out.

You don't have to buy something to enter into the drawing. Mail us a note to Cotton Bureau 2000 Smallman Street Suite 203A Pittsburgh, PA 15222 and make sure it's postmarked today Friday, June 12. Also, make sure it arrives by Wednesday, June 17. Also, make sure your name and email address is included somewhere. Also, make sure to do that thing you were supposed to do today. You know the one.

OK, because our lawyer makes us do this, here's the really fine print.
