Crazy story with that CFL penalty call that cost this woman the $1,000,000 prize in the Safeway/Sobeys "Touchdown to Win":



At least she didn't leave empty-handed (home theatre package, 500,000 Air Miles, groceries for a year, Grey Cup trip, season's tickets) but still...

Just found out Shoppers has the Grammy Awards contest on again. Time to use your Mastercard for purchases. If it's like last year, you will be able to win more than once for the $100 pre-loaded Mastercards. Good luck all...

NPN PIN code aquisition:

"2. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY METHOD OF RECEIVING A PIN CODE: To obtain a PIN Code without making an Eligible Transaction, while supplies last, visit redcarpetcontest.shoppersdrugmart.ca/npn between July 15, 2017 09:00:00 ET and August 4, 2017 23:59:59 ET (the “NPN PIN Request Period”) to complete an online No Purchase Necessary PIN Code request (each a “NPN PIN Request”) which will require you to: (i) provide your first name, last name, email address, telephone number, complete mailing address (including postal code), and age; and (ii) submit a 50 word or more unique and original essay in English or French stating “Why you would love to go to the GRAMMYs®” (the “Topic”). Once your NPN PIN Request is submitted, you will receive an email notification (“Email Notification”) that includes one (1) PIN Code, subject to your compliance with these Rules (as determined by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion). To be eligible, your NPN PIN Request must be submitted and received during the NPN PIN Request Period. The Releasees (defined below) take no responsibility for any technical issues with NPN PIN Requests. Please note that each NPN PIN Request must have a different 50 word essay on the Topic. Limit of one (1) PIN Code per NPN PIN Request. Because there is a limit of twenty one (21) PIN Codes that can be entered per person during the Contest Period, there is a total limit of twenty one (21) NPN PIN Requests per person during the NPN PIN Request Period. The Releasees take no responsibility for any lost, stolen, delayed, damaged, misdirected, late or destroyed NPN PIN Requests. PIN Codes must be used in accordance with these Rules prior to the end of the Contest Period."

Not making it easy are they?

Just write a 50 word essay once. I've been using the same one for 3 years now and have never been rejected :)

50-word essays usually stipulate that they have to be unique. Wouldn't recommend intentionally subverting contest rules, both because of the risk of disqualification and 'cause it's wrong.
Wishing everyone a lucky 2017!

I usually just change one or two words when it's an online NPE. It takes five seconds and then the essay is technically unique.

Many thanks to those who take the time to share contests on these forums.

If you're lucky enough to win a cool prize because one of these folks shared a contest, be sure to tell them you appreciate it!

Second round of e-mails for the Air Miles "All Aboard" Cruise contest went out this Monday past. Double-check your spam folders. :)

It's my bet the next two Mondays will see more e-mails go out.

Had a lot of trouble with the U.S. based ones. Less so with the Canadian ones. Annoying at any rate...

Surprised we haven't heard of more winners. I think there was only 1 from RFD? I'm guessing this round are the unclaimed ones from the first round? I seem to recall you have 72 hours 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

Yeah, the whole thing has me suspicious. There are definitely more winners out there, based on Facebook, but I expected a lot of RFDers to pipe in. We don't know how many winners were notified on the last two Mondays... Ah well. Just be vigilant about checking your inbox!
Wishing everyone a lucky 2017!
