sigh another dairy queen that won't take my gift card.
I won 5 and had no problem redeeming any of them - did $30 one visit and $20 the next! Keep trying - or maybe call DQ HO and have them deal with the location directly for training?
2015 wins: 89 wins / $29,632 - 2016 wins: 79 wins / $59,590 - 2017: 53 wins / $35,518 - 2018: 46 wins / $10,700 - 2019 to date: 9 wins / $2,003

Does their website say which ones do or don't?
I looked around and didn't find any info on which restaurants would or wouldn't accept it. I would have figured that it comes down to if the employee wants to accept the card or at least ask someone else at the restaurant to verify it. Mine was accepted, and I live in a pretty small town where those kinds of gift cards aren't likely to be common.

Or they do not know how to use the machine to enter in a paper gift card.

I live in a small city as well, and my DQ accepted it, but it took quite a while for them to figure out that it was legit and that they needed to key it in. Then every time a new person was at the til, they had to ask the manager, but they always did it. They were all kind of impressed I had won them.

I did and I will show their response if that happens again.

They also told me " eGift Certificates do not expire" but redemption instructions from Brisk says "Your prize code must be redeemed by November 1, 2018."

For about a week now, I've been receiving job postings from a number of the Facebook companies I follow. These have never come up before and there are quite a few of them now. I've looked all over my settings, and can't find a way to block them, without blocking the company itself, which I don't want to do. Is everyone else getting these now too, and does anyone know how to put a stop to it?

No not getting anything like that. I am getting friend suggestions lately. So if you or anyone can figure how to get rid of those that would be great.

Anyone who won a larger prize from the Brisk contest receive it yet?

I only ask because I received an email from UPS saying I have a delivery scheduled for tomorrow. The sender is just listed as PROMOTIONAL PRODUCTS.
Only thing I can think of is it's the gopro I won from Brisk.
Weird. UPS never sent me an email about the delivery but I got the GoPro on Wednesday.

I have a few extra Coke codes if anyone hasn't won the maximum of one per person yet. Just PM me and I'll give you one.

All gone.

I enter them everyday and so does my daughter. Neither one of us has ever won a thing from Royal Draw!
