Anyone else having issues with firefox and contest sites? Some sites won't load , others may have some garbled text, and others will let me fill in the info, but when I hit submit it just clears the form. I can copy the link to chrome and everything works properly. The captchas probably have something to do with it, it seems like if I have to complete a captcha it won't work, but some of the the pages where I don't have to fill out the captcha it goes thru. I do use adblocker and noscript, and firefox just did a big upgrade as well. This seems to affect about 1/3 of my daily entries..............
I use FF and have no such problems even with the new upgrade

I woke up to 145 of them. Surely others got more?

I wouldn't mind all the emails if some of them, or at least one of them was a win.
Slow 2017 continues.

found the issue, I use a plug in called NoScript, it must have become more sensitive, I now have to temporarily allow it on those sites now

With the Christmas season coming up, we’re starting to see a ramp up of contests on social media, small and large.

Just a friendly reminder that if you don’t know the company, can’t find any info on them, or have a weird feeling about it, don’t enter and give them your personal information. Also...real wins don’t require you to pay anything, so if they’re asking, do some research on the organization first before paying or giving your credit card.

The scammers will be out in full force over the next few months.

Anyone seen a list of winners from the Rockstar drinks PS4 contests? Some are still running but all the ones people in Ontario could enter have ended and (I assume) been drawn...

duno if most ppl already use tools like this but if u have either chrome or firefox u can install an extension called InFormEnter+ is an advanced form filler.
Download it from your browser addon site. u pretty much make a profile, then enter ur info that u have to enter in most in forms
ex:
first name
last name
address
email
postal code
phone
etc

and when u come to a page that has spots u ushally would type this info into u can use the app, it will show like a lil arrow inside the form u click it and all the info u typed out is listed making it easier n faster to fill out forms
Wins So Far From UrBeats By Dre Ear Buds, GoPro Hero 4 Session, Nexus 6P Cell Phone, Reeses Prize Pack With a Bunch Of Items & $150 Gift Card,, Sony Wireless Headphones, Sony Xperia Cell Phone, IPad Mini 3, Xbox one, Molson Canadian Beer Fridge (value $3000) & More

Make sure you read the rules, though. Some contests require manual entry.
