^ Same

Lots of contest fails lately. I hope it's not contagious.

RE: [Daily] 2013/03/21 Woman's Day - Bowflex® TreadClimber Giveaway (QC no) http://forums.redflagdeals.com/2013-03- ... o-1291252/

From the Rules: 'Expenses not specifically included in prize description and all taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner.'

Just curious . . . Has anyone ever won a high-value prize from the US? This prize is valued at $3,999 USD, so what does that mean to a Canadian winner in regards to ‘expenses’ (I’m thinking shipping?) and taxes? i.e. how much would a Canadian winner have to pay out to receive this prize? Thanx for any feedback!

+100 I'd like to know this as well. But expand it and wonder about the process of claiming prizes in general from the States. Not just expenses, but the filling in of forms and the like...

Shipping, no idea (has anyone ever won a prize where the sponsor made the winner pay for shipping)?

Ronin; there is this contest I enter daily and in the rules it says the following: "Winners are liable to pay any tariffs or foreign shipping cost if outside the U.S.‏"

I won a camera case once, and they gave me a code for the case, but I had to go through the buying process and shipping was $30.00 .. it was only a $99 case, I declined it. Sent them an email and there was nothing they would do - oh well

Just a heads up that I won a secondary (non-cash) prize from Reader's Digest on Monday and that my only notification of winning was through the mail. The envelope could easily be mistaken for junk mail, especially given the source. So if you enter Reader's Digest contests, open your mail!

I did a double-take with the new cat avatar.... it's like a battle between good and evil (or Spy Vs. Spy) - black background cat vs. white background cat.
Darn you two... now I actually have to READ the name and not just look at the little picture until my brain sorts out the difference.

I guess I could just go with some people's assumptions Ronin=evil ergo Black background? :razz:
Now I'm going to get specific... looking to win a trip to Tahiti, but Italy would do in a pinch!
:D

The brackets around "352" are unnecessary.
