Just a long shot, but for those having search troubles, are you searching the Contest forum, or the whole site? When I first started, i mistakenly was using the wrong search box for awhile.
I've been using the forum box. It didn't come up with "KD" (which I guess is because it's just the two letters even though it's in the title), and didn't show up with "Kraft" (as it was abbreviated to KD)...I stopped after searching those two ways. Though I have gone back now and did find it when I searched "cheese", that just wasn't my thought process when looking it up.

Ah, I see. So I guess it’s a matter of finding the right search word (and not a two letter word), not an issue with the search function.

I usually search for a word in the Contest name if the sponsor doesn’t come up, just b/c that’s how I usually post the titles.

I just came across a "locked" contest posting. I've never seen that before. What does it mean? Why would it be locked?

It was likely a re-post.

Nothing here either. I'm surprised no one won considering there was a ton of smaller prizes like the gift cards. It's possible they didn't draw yet? I know they have set draw dates but I don't believe they are always followed.

Today I realised I have been entering a contest for 2 months past the closing date....I wish they would have taken down the website on the close day...like most contests.

Today I asked Rogers regarding the spin the wheel contest. They said the winners were already contacted and that they are going to publish their names soon

I hate when that happens. I keep my daily contests in folders by end dates. A bit of work to set up at the beginning but stops that from happening and I can open a bunch of contest url's at the same time.
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

So I just happened to be in Robins Donuts and they have their roll up game on. I bought a cold beverage, and they refused to give me a contest cup even though I spent more on a cold beverage than a hot coffee. I was not happy.

" HOW TO OBTAIN PROMOTION MATERIALS.
Promotion materials can be obtained as follows, while distribution supplies last:
a. In Restaurant.At participating Robin’s Donuts locations, flip the rim of specially marked Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large Hot Drink cups"

Not to sound like a jerk but it seems like they are within their right not to give you a cup for a cold drink in my opinion. I don't think it matters how much you spend, you need to buy one of the required products....or send in a letter for the NPN option.
