I'm confused. How is it a GIVE away, if you're charging money?

You can't. If you sell entries, it's a raffle, not a give away
And bloggers are doing this? OMG!
Veronica - it looks like you typed your response in the middle of Tina's so it's hard to find.
I do agree that she completely misunderstood the point of your post, and that her giveaways aren't what you're describing.
Are you talking about entry options for giveaways? There is usually only 1 manditory option and due to the sheer amount of work that I put into my posts through research, reviewing and typing up an item I see nothing wrong with that. Optional entries are just that - optional. If you don't like it, don't do them.
If you have a problem with giveaways maybe you shouldn't be looking for them or joining groups that do reviews and/or giveaways, and also maybe you can start up a group that just gives things away. The thing is - I can't just give things to you. I only work 30 hours a week and I'd have to ask you to cover the shipping - and you'd probably complain about that.
Sorry to be blunt - but I work hard at what I do and I'm tired of people that just complain - if you have a solution to post with a complaints that's totally different.
