BTW - if anyone else won this, you will receive a $24 "Fandango" Prepaid visa card. It says it can be used at any movie theater that accepts visa, so I can't see why we couldn't just use this anywhere else that takes visa.
The fine print says that it can only be used at movie theatres.

Well that's a shame.

I can't even check the balance of the card though. Stupid website they tell you to use(svcards.com) looks like it was created by a high school student in the 90s.
I enter my prepaid card number and security code, but it keeps coming back as wrong credentials.

I got my win from the Norton Man of Steel contest today in the mail.
They really should change their congratulations letter though, wow.

I opened up the letter, read the paper and see "Congratulations you are the GRAND PRIZE winner in our Norton Symantic Man of Steel contest" blah blah blah. I am thinking WHAT? Grand prize? Then it says you've won a $24 Fandango gift card blah blah blah.

I mean, I knew I won a $24 GC, but that's an instant win...don't call it the grand prize, haha.

Got my hopes up for a split second.

BTW - if anyone else won this, you will receive a $24 "Fandango" Prepaid visa card. It says it can be used at any movie theater that accepts visa, so I can't see why we couldn't just use this anywhere else that takes visa.
I too received the Fandango card. I tried to look up the value on Fandango - it did not work. I looked up theaters near me on the Fandango site - none of them allow online ticketing. I wrote to Fandango through online chat to find out where I can use it, they told me to contact my local theaters and if they did not accept it, to contact the contest administrator. They said they did not think it would work for me because I am not from "America". I called local theaters, they had never heard of Fandango and said they do not accept the card. :( I wrote to the contest administrators via http://helpdesk2.prizelogic.com/contactus.aspx?id=232 to tell them and ask if they can exchange for something I could actually use (No reply yet). If they write back, I'll let you know.

Boooo! It looks like I was selected as a winner in the State Farm contest again. However, I didn't read the rules that stated one win per person. So I've been told I am not eligible.

Guess now I can stop entering that contest every day.

Edit: well it ends tomorrow, so I guess it doesn't really matter now does it? lol

I've been whipping up pure GOLD in my tweets on that one. A little surprised I haven't gotten a nibble.

I received one of the Fandango cards as well. If anyone finds out how or what we are supposed to do with these things in Canada, please let me know.

Otherwise I guess I'll just hold onto it until the next time I go to the US.

Look on their website for a theatre near you. There is one near me here in BC. (otherwise send it to James!)
