I won the Echo Dot from that contest too, and even though it's been more than the 5 weeks, I haven't received it yet either. I will post when I do though, and hope that you do the same.
Will do.

Woke up in the middle of the night, and said it's about time to try my luck with all the one time contests I missed (took a solid 3 hours to fill) and than also entered some dailies when I was scrolling. So 4 hours gone, and it's morning. Might be back into it, though I may need some time to recoup. Doesn't feel that natural, but I've already missed so much. Must get through this day without any regrets. Getting into contesting a little early, but hopefully it sticks.

Good luck. Good to have you back!

I won a small prize (we're talking $50), but they want a copy of photo ID. Not too keen on sending that anywhere. I can *somewhat* understand if you've snagged something worth thousands, but for $50, seriously?

I always try to think that the photo ID request is probably to stop cheaters who might have entered under many names, addresses, etc. But it is a pain, for sure.

I had to provide photo ID for a $20 gc.

Anyone win some instant prizes in the Food Network Eh or Nay contest? Won an Echo Dot 13 weeks ago and have gotten nothing in the mail when they say 3-5 weeks. It hasn't been more than 3-5 weeks since the contest ended but the Prize Confirmation said "You should receive your prize within 3-5 weeks.".
I won a Kitchenaid Mixer and haven't received it yet. I'm assuming they waited until the end of the contest to start sending prizes. If I haven't got it by the end of August I'll definitely be contacting them.

I was impatient and asked.

"All prizes will be shipped out by the end of this week or early next week. You should receive your prize shortly after.

Thank you for your patience!"

Anyone know how to "unhide " a thread? I hide them after I enter them, but I hid the "Contest Wins" thread by accident. :(

My Echo Dot just arrived (by Canada Post) and it is much smaller than I had imagined (only the size of a hockey puck!). I hope that others receive their prizes soon too.

Thanks AGAIN to all the folks who share contests. It's great to see RFDers win prizes from contests that they found on these boards!
Wishing everyone a lucky 2018!
