From my understanding Canadian Tire will film the review if you're asked to do so. You don't do it yourself.

Sorry, maybe I worded that badly. I meant, did they ever ask to come to your house and film you during your reviews?

Both are working for others.

Not too sure what the problem is, but when I have trouble logging in, or the page won't display properly, I go into my preferences tab and clear the specific cookie websites. than I try, usually that works, but this is with Facebook. there may be something else behind this..

I ran CrapCleaner so that should have cleared all my cookies.
This is driving me nuts

I wish I could but my knowledge of technology is really really low! I just cross my fingers that nothing goes wrong with my computer so I sure hope an RFDr can help as it's frustrating when others post great contests they find and you can't takr part so hope you get some help soon!

Valeriey, have you tried using a different browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera)? I also wonder if you might have security software on your PC that is blocking that particular site (appears to be FB but may in fact be the underlying contest promo site like Woobox).

Must have been a Facebook issue because I tried my BF's computer and got the same error. I also called my sister, who is a contester in another province, and she was also getting the same error. However, everything is working good today. Thanks for trying to help.

Saw this article this morning regarding mail-in NPEs:

http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/nova ... -1.3999965

I never really enter whenever there is a stamp involved, but maybe I should consider it...
I've had pretty good luck on mail in NPE contests, but I only do ones where the prize is worth it to me. I've won 2 iPads, cash, and a few other smaller things on mail ins. I usually figure that contests that require a purchase must have lower entries. Either people don't buy it, or they do and don't bother entering because they're not fanatical contesters. ;)

That being said, I've never won on any NPE PIN requests, I may give up those entirely.

I've managed to win bonus stars every few days in the Starbucks Road Trip game. If I am able to get 72 more stars by April 5, I'll become a Gold Level member.

Did get 1000 PC Plus points on the Fortinos scratch card today. Want the 20000 pts prize soon if possible!

Simons had drawn 4 possible winners today for the $250 gift cards for their Prom Contest. Hope their social media announces the winners by next week.
I don't see mention of who won the Calgary store opening prize package or the swim prize package.

Shoppers should be contacting after April 11 the winners of the current game-recall seeing posts on their Facebook page (Mar 14 post has March 15 comment with Shoppers replying to winner comment) unless the reference was to the Optimum Millionaire game winners. https://www.facebook.com/shoppersdrugmart
Surfing 2017. Fall, show me the roll-out of prizes!

Wow seems like the wins reported list is getting fewer and fewer posts and further in between posts! I've won two Goodreads Books this year which is great but that's been it so far! I like to read the winners posts to keep me motivated!
