I was a weekly winner in Snack Season contest 5 times. I received 1 prize containing 2 hats, 1 shirt, 1 long sleeve shirt and 1 hoodie. I reached out to them regarding the rest of the prizes and they told me that prize I received contained all of my prize winnings. I understood the weekly prize value was $100. Anyone else have any issues with this?

I won 6 times and haven't seen anything yet. i did get this email last week:

Our sincere apologies but there has been a mix-up with your NFL prize. We have mistakenly sent you the wrong one. We have corrected the error and the correct prize is now on the way to you.

Please note: The incorrect prize does not need to be returned.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Maybe they are aware of the inconsistencies in the prizes.

Problem is in the rules they don't say what exactly is included in the prize- just a value

So many recent events cancelled, that I don't know what some contests will be offering soon. Hopefully this virus will be short-lived. It's already spreading less in it's origin, but is spreading in Europe. Hopefully we all get back out and do some fun things once it's safe and once we all get into the spring feeling. I don't think anything that has this much momentum can ultimately last a long time since it's not a positive for the people. Maybe they'll have other things to offer in the meantime, but hopefully it doesn't slow us down to a stall. Let's hope the streets get busy again come the warmer weather sooner amidst this respiratory fever fiasco and we can all do things without thinking..I'm unlucky in contests, but still healthy. There were some Junos contests, cancelled. There was a Raptors in NYC contest, now the season is postponed. Maybe some contests will be postponed, but some will ultimately be cancelled. Not that interesting, more important things than contests, but it directly impacts this as well lol. Hopefully we all get through safe and sound and enjoy this time for what it's worth.

"How we're handling Covid19" emails have now out outnumbered Black Friday and Boxing Day sales emails - totalled.

The downside of ticking that "add me to your mailing list" box when entering contests. ;)

Yup, I got about 20 so far.
Don't take life too seriously.
No one gets out alive anyway.

Are we all abandoning the travel contests? I wonder if they will substitute cash prizes... Curious how this will be handled.

I am not avoiding them at all.
By the time the prize is given out, this will be all over.

And even if the trip is coming up soon, they'd probably postpone it, rather than give out cash instead.
