- HOW TO GET A GUIDE FOR SOMEONE: After you take the quiz, you will receive a custom share URL. You can also receive this unique URL at the beginning of a quiz where it says “Get a Guide for a Friend”.
To be entered, five people must click on your share URL and they must take the quiz. You will receive an email confirming they took the quiz.
IF they have already taken the quiz, you can still get entered! They simply click on your URL and enter their email address so we can give both of you credit.
If someone shares their URL with you and you have already taken the quiz, click on their URL and enter your email. This will give both of you credit.
For each person over 3, you receive an additional entry. However, the prize is only valid for a $50o for yourself and $100 for each of your friends, max 5 friends.
