Everyone who I've heard win has got the free stuff and decided to buy HEAPS of other stuff as well so they probably airn't losing too much on giving the item away, then how many people stay and browse the site at the time of the giveaway and end up purchasing something who otherwise wouldn't have I'd say a lot. Sierra is great though Clap I've bought most of my gear through them :)

Not true. I won a Burton board 1.5 years ago, and they shipped it out to me in Australia. Maybe the rules have changed since then....

Sierra takes their list of people from the active member list of the forum. You can get that information by going to the forum's home page, and click on the active users on the bottom of the page. Here is also a link.

http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/forum/active_users.asp

Most of the discussion about the 3PM giveaway is located at this thread (I know there is a lot of post on this thread and hard to find information).

How many people are usually online for the give away? The last time I was around to watch the broadcast, there was over 1100 people online, so they gave away 3 boards.

Does anybody know why Sierra give away snowboards? I mean giving away around +400 bucks of profit(~2 new boards) everyday doesn't sounds like a great idea. Don't get me wrong I love Sierra for doing it, but how can they afford to?

It brings views to their website which ups them on search engines.  Plus it is good publicity.  Companies spend a lot more than a few hundred dollars a day for advertising.
