The other thing: make sure that you are logged in before you start playing. I did all 5 rounds today, THEN it asked me to log in to enter the contest (i didn't even notice that i wasn't logged in) ... then, once i logged in i had to start playing all over again to get 5 games/entries recorded. suuucked.
SIGH poor you..........hehehee :o

I found this too. I got a time of 40 seconds and only after did I have to log in. I thought that I had lost that score. However, it turns out I did not. The score was updated some time later.

There seems to be a delay between the score being achieved and it being recorded on the leader board. Also one can play as many times as one wishes, even after your game attempts counter has reached zero.
You've got to be in it to win it!

re: Keurig Canada - "A Sip of Winter"

Has anyone been logging in daily to "increase your chances" (as it says on the splash page)?

I go in there every couple of days, but it doesn't seem like anything ever changes (actually, when I went in this morning, it even looked like my number of entries had dropped!).

:confused:

How are you sharing? Maybe you've used up all of your "shares" already as there is a limit?

Well according to the rules, there's a limit. But according to the splash page and the email confirmation you can enter daily to increase your chances.

When I went in today, the referral entries I'd accumulated previously had all disappeared, so I just went and spammed three more of my friends.

Just a random FYI.

It seems like readers digest had a leak of the contesters e-mails (or sold/shared them). When I first started entering contests, I was using unique e-mails for every company so I could control spam better. (I decided to stop doing that as it got complicated)

Today I received spam that was sent to [email]readersdigest@"contests.mydomain.com[/email]", obviously I didn't use this e-mail for anything other than readerdigests's contests. And it's very unlike a spammer to just "guess" this address.

Thanks for the heads up, but man, you are hard core!

That is interesting timorfd. I have had a big increase in quirky emails over the past week - one email would not be a contesting one though.

Same here. My UK Hotmail had nineteen bits of spam one day, then five the next. This is unusually high for me, usually it is two or three. I do not use it for contesting any more. Strangely me Canadian contest email address had one or two at best.

Reitman's "It's Your Turn to Get a Makeover"

I'm getting this:



The last time I entered was the 7th.

So is this once per week, or once every 168 hours?
I was having the same issue. I went back to their main FB page, clicked on the contest link and was able to enter that way tonight.

Still no go here.

The link I have bookmarked is the same as the one from the main page.
