In each of the reminder emails sent by Codecademy about the “MacBook Pro Membership Swag Pro Giveaway”, it says that requirement 1 is that you must be a paid Pro subscriber, yet right underneath it, the asterisk says “No purchase necessary to enter or win”. How can you be a paid Pro subscriber but not make any purchase? No purchase necessary, yet you must purchase a Pro subscription? That seems like a direct contradiction.
Hey numbermaniac, if you click in the rules for the giveaway, you can see what all that means. Being a Pro subscriber is the primary way to enter, but you can also enter the draw by writing in.
