When I enter contests there are always boxes to check to receive product information from them or any sponsors.  If I don't check the box, does it go against me if they choose my entry.  I know that there is no purchase necessary. Sounds pretty dumb but these companies are all about making money.

They give you those boxes to either opt in or opt out of things, they won't throw out your entry if you win because you didn't check a box to receive information. If they wanted it to be mandatory they wouldn't put the boxes there, they'd just state that they will be sending you the info when you enter.


Don't ever hesitate to not check the boxes....it won't hurt your chances.

Exactly. Most sponsors don't want to waste money sending out unwanted information that might actually irritate and turn a potential customer against them.
