I subscribed to the Mac's thread, and chose "instantly by email". I have yet to receive a single email, but my email address works just fine. This is why a summary would be nice, since I *never* get the emails.
to get the instant emails you have to also turn "My Notifications" off

That's ridiculous that you can't have both, and that it doesn't automatically set to no if you set the emails on. Thanks for letting me know, we'll see if this works now. It hasn't worked for me on any thread since the forum upgrade.

I remember that - I was actually was subscribed years ago, but personally I don't think it's worth the time/seems a bit fishy. If you look at the 'recent' millionaires on the first page, most of them are from 2011-2012. The chances of getting some kind of payout from them are likely far worse than playing legit OLG lotteries, LOL.

I was subscribed in the early 00's, and don't remember why I stopped playing. I wouldn't go back now though, because it does seem sketchy.

Does anyone enter the Real Maple Syrup contests on social media? It’s a company from the UK.

Just saw someone saying they won one of these, and instead of the prize in the picture, the prize they got was a ketchup packet sample size of syrup.

Just FYI, they seem to post a lot of Contests.

I think it's Pure Maple Syrup, and no I don't follow as they are based in the UK, and pretty sure they didn't ask if it was open to Canada before they entered it.

Right, their handle is @realmaplesyrup on twitter.

Their contests say open worldwide.

I took a chance on a Long Tall Sally contest on Twitter-have to find the 5 Easter Eggs on their website and list the product names or numbers to try to win a chocolate prize basket from Cocoa Runners. Will see if I win a UK contest or not.

Found another use for my Google Home Mini...use it to do the STQs for you. Much better than a calculator and it responds to my voice...
