I haven't been posting my wins lately - didn't want to sound braggy - but I now realize that it does motivate us all to keep trying! I would love to see more RFDers posting wins too. It sorta feels like we should be winning more than what is being posted LOL

).
a lot of the stuff I win is never listed on rfd, quite a few are book sweeps from goodreads.com or author sweeps, or US and Cda sweeps....newsletter sweeps where you just click something and you're entered like that latest drisdol one ..thats spelled wrong lol, the strawberry one..there are tons of sweeps that are newsletter specific and wont be posted here

I actually had a very nice win of a $300 grocery card from 2017-03-31-health-canada-focus-facts-2042821/ but obtaining the correct prize from Mosaic (contest marketing agency running contest) has proven to be impossible. They mailed it without tracking and it never arrived. I let them know and they stated they'd purchase a new gift card and would send it with tracking, but then they refused to send me the tracking information. I didn't receive this card either. When I let them know they stated they were experiencing internal issues and they'd try again!! Third time (sorta) lucky and I received a gift card, however, it was for a store other than the one stated in the Release Forms and the card is valid only in Calgary! I do not live near Calgary and have no friends or relatives that I can even give it to. Mosaic has ignored my 5 phone messages and numerous emails asking if there is anyway we can work at exchanging this card for the one stated in the Release Forms, but they refuse to reply. I have to assume that they do not have the courtesy to at least let me know they are choosing to do nothing about their error. Frustrating, but I guess a Calgary food bank will see a gift card in their future.

I would go to the media. Every tv station has a 'consumer advocate' that I'm sure would go to bat for you. I went to our consumer advocate in Vancouver after Princess cruises messed me around and I got a free cruise as compensation. Not sure about you, but for $300 grocery card, I'd make a stink.

I won free eyeglasses from this contest. Thanks kindly, macbreezy.

I believe it's a Weekly contest, so you may wish to update the frequency.
Wishing everyone a lucky 2017!

Haven't had any real big wins yet this year but had a few moderate wins since July 1.

Won $150 cash and some science world tickets from a local radio station (straight to ETF's in my TFSA so it will be the win that keeps on giving)
Won a transformers lunch box from the Valvoline contest, will have to find a nephew to give that too. (thanks RChong)
Won some concert tickets to Shawn Mendes from local radio station, tried to sell, but in the end had to give them away for free.
Won a "cool bag" from the Chiquitta contest (thanks Missycat + UPC posters)
Won a Vitamix blender from the Olympic dairy contest ($715 retail value) - Can't find the thread which means I may have failed to post it, swore I found it here, it was a busy spring for me :(

Thanks again to all the contest posters and the redflagdeals community! May you all have bountiful wins as we approach the "Back to School contests season"

I received an email today from Jiffy Lube Ontario saying I won a bronze prize in the 'See & Celebrate Canada 150' Contest.
Prize is a Jiffy Lube Oil change gift certificate.

Gold/silver prize would have been fantastic, but I will take what I can get. I haven't won anything in so long lol.

Thanks Vilmark for posting the contest

Having a good week. I believe it was yesterday I won FINALLY (entry 21 of 21) in the shoppers Grammys one. I won on an NPN with a ridiculous essay about how i love the Grammys so much I was going to write this years nominees on my gravestone. Its very hard to keep writing those and making 50 words! I won around noon for those interested in that type of thing. Since I got none last year I was thrilled. Thanks Vilmark.

Today I was playing the Sugar Crisp contest.. apologies for no links but search these terms and you'll find them. I had forgotten what the prizes even are since Its been going since January. The two dollar things were flashing and my heart almost stopped thinking I scored thousands in cash. I won a $50 playstation card (you get to choose what system) which was great anyway. Thanks 777Kevin.
Contesting can be a healthy coping mechanism :lol: I have fallen in love with this forum
