I would love to even have a chance to enter. I was entering fine for the first week and then was locked out and their password reset function won't work either. I've been in contact with them and they're still trying to figure out how to get me back in! I hate the fact that I'm not even in the running right now, but hope that my fellow RFD'ers are winning instead.

Me too. I won back in November and received it before Christmas, and then just received another one un-announced in the mail today, with a letter that said..."Congrats again"
I had contacted them after my first win to confirm if it was only one win per person, and they said yes, i guess they had more prizes and not enough entrants?
I do remember when the contest was on that Hellman's was sending out tweets to people to follow them so that they could DM them. I assume a lot didn't so know they are sending out the left over prizes. Nice of them as they could have just kept the prizes and no one would have known.

Any winners on the Participation Contest yet?
I won a Fairmont Ovation certificate. It was a weekly prize, I think, and it arrived in less than a week.

Yesterday I posted a Steam Whistle contest. I did a search and nothing came up, so I added to the forum. My post has deleted, because it was a duplicate - I'm guessing. I see the same contested was posted around the same time as Steamwhistle (not two words). I thought common practice was to combine the two when duplicates happen. The only reason I noticed is that someone had asked a question on my post and I went to reply.
2017 8 wins/$9,088 2016 - 16 win/$8,960 2015 - 20 wins/$6,333 2014 - 19 wins/$1,187 2013 - 22 wins/$1,664, 2012 - 21 wins/$10,259, 2011 - 1 win/$5,000 The person that said winning isn't everything, never won anything. ~Mia Hamm

No Desjardins RRSP TFSA contest heads-up e-mail last week and nothing today. Guess there won't be a contest to win $5K or $3K for one's RRSP or TFSA in 2017. That was a good contest.

Didn't they exclusively award the prizes to Quebec residents?
Wishing everyone a lucky 2017!

I didn't see anything on this one, but Desjardins is definitely on my "don't waste my time entering" list.

Desjardins has Ontario locations too. The winners tended to have French surnames but that does not mean they were only from Quebec.

I realized after posting that the contest e-mails tend to start at the end of January. Guess I was diverted by other cash contests and only realized the big one was not posted at all given it was Feb.27. The contest site is not active.

The tendency was absolute, as I recall. I'm very distrustful of them, as a result.

I know what you mean. My daily list is currently under 40 right now. I'm pretty positive in past years, it was always WAY higher this time of the year. Either I am getting pickier with what contests I feel are worth bothering with, or there are just less contests.

Also a drag that I have not had a real contest win since November. Such a huge slump for me.

I consider myself fortunate to have 5 daily entry contests at any time. 40 is not even in my long-range viewfinder.
Now that the Shoppers Optimum Millionaire game is over, time to look around the Internet for contests.
