I have just finished entering my daily contests.... Christmas can now begin! (and not a moment before)

I hope everyone wins or has won something nice for Christmas! (or for whatever holidays you enjoy in 2017 & 2018)

Well....not only have I not won anything for two years now, I lost my beloved husband earlier in the year so Christmas is not so merry for me. Last thing I won was a package of 4 rolls of toilet paper. Is there a message in that? LOL However.....maybe next year! Merry Christmas everyone and best wishes for 2018!

Do most of you have a separate Instagram account for contests?
I definitely do. Same with twitter and facebook.

Wenda1 2017 was a terrible year for you, but I'm wishing you all good things and wonderful prizes in 2018! You post so much on this forum including answers, and you are certainly long overdue for some good karma! :)

I just received a prepaid VISA card from Scotiabank, but everything on the two information sheets is in French. I can make out things like the fact that you can add money to it, use it in many different places, etc., but because the name on the card is Client Important, I suspect that it is a marketing effort. But just in case, it's a win from a primarily French contest, did anyone else get this in the mail today?

I came across this article about a woman that won $25K in the States -good for her! https://infotel.ca/newsitem/us-anti-gam ... p576027449
Funny how some people in this article are quoted as saying that entering sweepstakes (contesting) and gambling are the same thing! Ms. Gilroy, the anti-gambling crusader who won, was correct in pointing out that sweepstakes are free for all to enter and are therefore totally different. Love hearing stories like this....thank you for sharing this article Rosibal! :)

This part made me giggle: "I called a pastor friend, and said, 'Oh my God, should I send it back? What do I do? Do I donate it?'" she said. "He said, 'Don't feel guilty. You just got paid for all your volunteer work against gambling.' It's God showing his grace on me."
So if you speak out against "sin" and then you "sin" god will reward your "sinning." Interesting.
Stupid, but interesting.

Any updates on the cheaters from you know where? Haven't seen any articles on them recently and if they are still using cheat to win software. How are the sponsors and contest administrators dealing with this? I know we seem to have a lot more security these days but there are also contests in which nothing has happened. No captchas, giving up the STQ, unlimited entries, etc. You'd think those would be open to abuse...

I'm sorry for your loss Wenda. My mom passed away a few months ago and Christmas was not so happy here either.

I find the monthly contest list gets shorter every year. I wonder if sponsors are giving up on this type of promo.

I see Rockstar Energy drinks are at it again. i have my druthers with this outfit. Can't find winners lists on many of their contests. Forums state people have won daily contests but nailing down who has won the grand prizes is tough. In one case they listed online monikers only for motorcycle prizes as it was an entry after playing a video game! Many people wondered who won the Destiny 2 PS4 prizes. I could not find that info out. The web pages that list winners loop back to the entry page! Very suspect...
