I'm sure you did, but did you check the balance?

Also, for many prepaid cards now, if you want to shop online, you first have to go to the card website and enter your postal code to be connected to your card. Extra layer of security I guess.

I hope you can get it working!

Ps...I think I remember doing something online to activate the gap card...but I'm sorry, so long ago, I can't remember what it was....
Good to know if I do ever win a Visa gift card!

Tribute.ca has not posted winners from the Casio G-Shock watches draw (contest ended Feb.6). I've tweeted to them twice a week apart and give up. The winners list has not been updated to reflect the contest nor winners as yet-March 14. Will not enter their contests in the future.

I've also noticed that they haven't posted winners for several contests. Especially for electronics, they were giving away phones around Christmas. My buddy and I have both won movie passes on tribute, I think they are legit.

Big Brother Canada starts tonight, haven't seen any contests yet though.

Update: I queried The Brick on twitter...they said they will have a BB contest soon!

I posted a contest earlier today and now it's gone or at least I cannot find it. It's not even listed under my users posts. It was called Global News LET HAWAI’I HAPPEN. Anyone know what could have happened to it?

It was a repost so it was probably merged with the OP.

Ok, but I can't even find any post at all on it. Do you know If I perhaps hid it from view if it would it come up when I do a search?

I think that may happen, but I do not know for sure.

Perhaps a MOD could provide an answer.

It might have been deleted due to being a repost.
However you can view every thread you've ever hidden using https://forums.redflagdeals.com/ucp.php ... hidetopics
Thanks I found it in my hidden posts. So it was a repost.

Well now I know that if you hide a post it will not show up in your searches. Even if you do an advanced search. So I guess there is a drawback to that feature.

Hey guys,

I had joined this contest after finding it here:
2017-03-01-outpost-magazine-win-trip-do ... #p27045917

So, I received an email from the Outpost Magazine editor congratulating me for winning.
They've sent me a liability waiver form to fill out.
They shouted me out on their twitter handle today :


I've only been entering into contests for a few months, and never won anything. Therefore I am a little suspicious.
How can I confirm the legitimacy of the prize? Additionally, how can I ensure that I do not lose any money.
I will obviously have to pay to travel from vancouver to toronto, as the prize is from toronto to dominica, but i don't want to get scammed.

If past winners of trip prizes could help me out here I'd really appreciate it.

I just can't quite believe it yet.

Is there something about it that makes you suspicious?

But if you're worried, don't book your extra flights until they make the flight booking, and then just check the airline reservation yourself.

And congrats!

I didn't post this as new contest as I can't find rules to follow RFD posting policy. Vilmark did here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/air-mil ... -1.4037632
