I've sent an email request every day since the contest was posted, but haven't received a PIN back yet. I don't have a junk file with my email (Sympatico), so I'll have to think of another way to try to get them. Hmmmmm.

Thanks for the responses.
Sympatico does have a junk email. I had a sympatico account quite a few years back and was missing emails from people. My husband showed me a different way to log into my mail and see if I had any missing emails. I did. Not sure why the emails went there and didn't show up in my regular check. Found out I am having a similar issue with my outlook mail and I will regularly check through the web site for missing emails. I'm not sure what the web page is that you go to to check as it's been quite a few years since I had a sympatico account but it might be this: https://webmail.bell.net/loginr/wmwrap.jsp

Hope it helps.

Sympatico did have a junk mail file, that I wasn't aware of until someone on this board pointed it out a few years ago (maybe you?), but they dropped it when they moved from the hotmail portal last year. I was so grateful to have learned about the junk file, because I did find several wins there, but now there is no option to monitor your own junk at all. I even called them up about this last year when we were forced to move to their new and improved (as if!) portal. Thanks for the suggestion though!

That's too bad. I know with outlook you have to pay for the full version to get all the features and that still doesn't guarantee that I won't miss any emails and I am too cheap to pay for it. Luckily I don't use it for contests. I am in the midst of changing my contest email from yahoo to a gmail account. Perhaps you should think about getting a new account for contests.

Funnily enough, I have that on my to-do list. I have been hating all of the spam I get on my personal account, so will be getting a hotmail account soon.

Yeah, they said that last year too but I got my prize quickly then. I was wondering if they had started shipping.

Yes, but they don't seem to like me, lol!
So weird. Maybe send them a message via social media asking for help? I don't understand why it's not getting through.

For some strange reason, my new hotmail account did the trick! Thanks for following up with another suggestion though.

Question about Priceline Free Your Friday contest the rules say The Photo cannot have any person other than the entrant in it; however, it does not have to contain the entrant (i.e. it can just depict scenery). ? but the pictures they are picking for winning have other people in them?
