I have been notified that I am the winner of this contest: British Tourist Authority "Love is GREAT Britain"! https://forums.redflagdeals.com/2017-09 ... c-2115586/

Thanks to toguy for posting!

I have a question for previous trip winners with Air Canada: They had given me a flight redemption code but airport taxes are not included - is this a common practice?
Congrats! I was really hoping to win this, but I shouldn't be greedy as I won a trip to London back in November. My first contest trip win to London was back in 2009, and flew with Air Canada but all expenses were covered. My trip back in November I flew with Delta, with a stop over in Amsterdam, and that too the taxes were covered. Enjoy your trip!
2018 Wins: Sam Smith Tickets from ChumFm,
2017 Wins: Going in Style movie passes, Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Flag, Decanter Fine Wine Encounter, Free 2L of Canada Dry, Dog Food from Cesar

Late reply from me, but yes, I also had to pay taxes on one contest and not others.

I won a CHFI trip in 2012 and had to pay the taxes for 2 people. That trip I won on a Monday and we flew out on Thursday the same week!

I won 3 other trips that involved airfare after that trip, but did not have to pay any taxes or fees involving the flights. Depends on the sponsor.

Enjoy!

a couple of blog wins (newsletters I signed up for and even an instagram win), nothing as exciting as the ps4 or fuji camera, but still nice, considering how much time I spend on entering ... I'd really like to win more books or amazon stuff like that and right now there are tons of hops going on , on twitter, so maybe MY luck will change...
nice to see how much RFD members are winning

I won a camera from the Canon On the Glass contest a little while ago but never heard from them or received a response to my emails, still hoping something shows up! Thanks to the OP SoroSuub1!

I had that issue with the fireplace I won. I contacted them through their facebook page after several emails and got it sorted out. You should try a different method of contact. Congrats on the win!

It just shows up. A lot sooner than I thought hearing from someone who won before me. He mentioned they never replied, it just showed up. Should happen that way.

Congrats!

I had a pretty awesome week this week.

$250 gift card for a local group of restaurants
$125 for Boston pizza from a Twitter contest and a year supply of cookies from Voortman Bakeries.

I also think that I may have won the Iceland Naturally January contest, but I'm not sure.

I won the sweepstakes for a contest. Can I be sure that anything I entered through this site is not a scam as it asks for my sin number...

Was this a US/Canada contest? If so, you may not need it as a Canadian, but you have to read the rules for the contest. I have never been asked for that, and it would only make sense if it was a US based contest, as they pay taxes for their wins. Congratulations and hope you can resolve it without having it feel like you're being cheated being asked too much personal information.

Going to get into the contest game again in a couple of days. Already browsing. Good luck all.

I've won plenty of contests. Never seen one that asks for SIN number. Sounds super sketchy. Please post contest website so we can check it out
Rex, eat the salad.
