How can I enter a contest for FAQs/Reviews?
But the rules says..
All contribution contests open to residents of the United States and Canada only, void where prohibited.

Can I enter as a fun entry just like we did in BYG contest?

Let's put it this way, you need a US address... any address. Let's say, for argument's sake, you live at the White House... You'd enter the address for the White House and a valid email and get a gift card to Amazon.com.

No, it doesn't have to be your Amazon email address, it can be any valid email address. In fact, I also use 2 different email addresses. I don't live in the US either and have my first FOTM won last month. What I have done is just entered the address as mentioned in the metaFAQ (the famous White House) and give my first email address. When I have won, the gift card will be sent to my first email address. Now I can see the code and use my second email address for Amazon accounts to redeem the money.

Of course it's easier if you use only one email address. The whole thing won't be complicated as in my case.

I was trying to be subtle, but you only need a valid address and email. The address wont matter, since the gift card is sent to the email.

OK. Thanks for information.
Can I use the code anytime or it'll expire after a period of time? I'm asking because I don't have a bank account and I don't even need money at this time/age. I am just a student.
Are you going to participate this month?

After you redeem the code, it will stay in your accounts forever. The gift cards itself has expire date. If you don't redeem it, you can lost the money. At least it's what I have learnt from the past month. That's my first time win and at least my amazon accounts still have that $100 balance.

bank account

The gift card will be attached to your Amazon acct and can not be used anywhere except on Amazon.com. It can not be sold for money or transferred into cash, unless you're willing to sell it to a US citizen since Amazon.com is the NA site. If you plan to sell it, I suggest making a Paypal acct and having them pay you there, since you don't have a bank acct.

Once attached to the Amazon acct, the money will not expire or go away, unless you forget the acct email or something.
