Wow, what a way for Cruchyroll to shaft the Premium Members who helped them get to the one million mark who don't use Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. I'm not a social media person beyond Crunchyroll and I know that I'm not the only one on here. You should be able to enter through a contest email as well, not just through social media. They might actually lose me as a paying member over this as I have paid for their service for almost five years now and they haven't really done anything recently to incite me to keep paying for them. Unless they add the ability to enter the contest through email as well, I probably won't be renewing my Premium Membership when it comes up in March, or I'll cancel it sooner than that. As it stands now I can only enter the Friends Prize Package since I have a YouTube account, but I want to be able to enter the other ones too, especially the trip to Japan one.

This is not the way for you to impress and keep your paying members who don't use social media who helped you get to this point, Crunchyroll.

"*Please note that this prize is only available to US residents."

I'm not really surprised, just disappointed. It's been said for years, but Crunchyroll really needs to work expanding in places besides the USA. A lot of people, myself included, pay just as much as Americans do but don't get the same back. Things have been improving gradually but things like this are just reminders of those negative aspects.

Kind of putting a bad mood on things, but congrats nonetheless on hitting 1,000,000.

Exactly.

To anyone outside of america they have to pay for 3 events and can't even get access to Tuesday.

Monday: have to pay anyway but then it'd be import tax on top
Tuesday: america only
Wednesday: import tax
Thursday: import tax

At least the majority of it is available worldwide

With all due respect for your desire not to use social media, accounts on all the services referenced are incredibly easy to set up, and there's nothing stopping you from making these accounts specifically to enter these contests... I myself have a Twitter account almost exclusively for this sort of thing.

Entry by email could complicate things significantly anyway.

I'm not a heavy Twitter or Instagram user, but I have accounts on there for stuff like this. And like others have said, it's not hard to sign up anyways...

In any case, congrats on the 1 million!! This is a pretty cool promotion, too. Looking forward to at least hearing about people winning. (I have terrible luck)

Edit: The official rules for the Trip to Japan state that you have to be Premium + to enter...
The post above says several times you need only be Premium. Which one is correct?

Yay, a celebration. Nothing says thank you to subscribers than some freebies... oh wait. They're almost all exclusive to people with a large social media presence and/or US only. Wow. Gee, you sure know how to thank everyone outside of the US. Excluding them definitely says "thank you" to me.

Fuck off, Crunchyroll. You can keep all your shitty freebies, just actually work on getting more shows outside of the US, because after years of growing you are still hopelessly below par.

Thanks for the contests and congratulations on one million, Crunchyroll! I'll be trying my best to win! Two quick questions: is the submission for the last (trip to Japan) contest supposed to be a photo or artwork? Also, I noticed in the detailed rules it says it must be in JPEG format, but is there a required format if it's a video as well? Thanks?

I realize this, but I have my own reasons for not wanting to sign up for most social media, since I'm not a social media person. I won't sign up for FaceBook because their privacy policies suck. And I really don't need to waste time on Twitter and Instagram if I don't want to be on them. I know that I could make an account on Twitter to be able to enter the contests that way, but in the past they've made it where you could enter them with email as well, so I don't understand why they couldn't have made it where you could enter these giveaways through email as well. Just this past October I think it was, they had a Bungo Stray Dogs contest where you had to enter through email for it.

They have their own contest email.

I just checked and it does say that in the official rules. So, are regular Premium Members allowed to enter that contest too? I'd really like to know since it 's like the one thing I can enter without needing to use social media.

About that Store Sale...
Are the discounted items locked for the whole week? Or will it be on a daily rotation?

Just wanted to remind folks that only the Tuesday contest is US-only, we worked hard to make sure the overwhelming majority of these promotions were available to users in tons of different countries!! We've also been working harder than ever to provide more anime in more places than ever before, and we've been breaking our own records all around the world every new season. We hear you, and we're doing our best!!!

KnightmareFrame9: The discounted items will be available starting tomorrow through next weekend!!

As for the Trip to Japan contest, it's open for all Premium users. The first three days of prizes are open to general CR users, and the last two are Premium-only.

I hope this clears up some questions ~
