A Tale of Two Offers

I found an offer on another website for writers:
 
 
The offer reads in the following 3 paragraphs (and I am quoting exactly as it appears):
 
I love hearing from you! And to prove it and show my love, for the month of June, everyone who leaves a comment I will put your name in a hat. If you comment and link back to my blog on your blog, you get your name in the hat twice. If you leave a comment, and link back to my blog, and mention my book We Are Not Alone in your blog…you get your name in the hat THREE times. What do you win? The unvarnished truth from yours truly.
 
I will pick a winner every week for a critique of your first five pages. At the end of June I will pick a winner for the grand prize. A free critique from me on the first 15 pages of your novel. Good luck!
 
Note: I am keeping all the names for a final GRAND, GRAND PRIZE of 30 Pages (To be announced) OR a blog diagnostic. I look at your blog and give feedback to improve it. For now, I will draw weekly for 5 page edit, monthly for 15 page edit.
 
Does this sound like a good offer?  Before you answer read on for my offer which has been on my blog for a few weeks now.
 
I will read your manuscripts, novels, what-have-you and give you my feedback and suggestions to improve it. 
 
No limits on quantity of manuscripts, no page limits, no grand prize, no sending in your name for a hat drawing, everyone who sends one in wins.
 
How can you beat my offer?

Answer:  You can't!
