It is my understanding that the winners who were contacted by email last year were only sent one email. Several of them found the emails in their spam folders. And they had a very short window of time, 2 days I think, to respond.

I check my spam folder daily, or is that hourly? OK - sometimes every 10 min.

At least it's cheaper than actual gambling.
I won a lovely green Robitussin woolie (gave it to my son, I couldn't believe he was actually willing to wear it) and later I won a throw. The prize with $$$ would have been nicer for sure!

As for me, a few "bigger" wins were Tassimo cofeemaker and an espresso machine -- and I don't even drink coffee. The Tassimo went to dh (who has now switched to Keurig, too hard to get the coffee for the Tassimo) and dd got the espresso machine (and I think she uses it daily). $50.00 McDonald's Arch card (which, after having it for a year still had $20.00 on it so I gave it to ds last night). $50 gift card from a site called Reward It and a $250.00 gift card from Retail Me Not. $1,000 from Purex -- which covered dh's broken tooth crown. I'm waiting to win something for ME! I know, that is just so selfish, lol. Oh, I've won a ton of books -- so many that I'm not entering for any more books until I get my stack whittled down. (Book wins usually want reviews also.)

I always check that. I hope that maybe that will generate a PIN code for me some day.

I know I left that unchecked. I won on my work email and didnt want the extra emails.


Nothing new really expect I may not get to pick my hotel. That's okay, we will take whatever!


I guess I can understand about people thinking I really didnt win. I've spent way too much time on threads that turned out to not be true.

Anyoo...... I really had to laugh about everyone finding change on the ground.

Good luck and really, would one of you hurry up and win already!!!!!

I found a lucky penny in a parking garage the other day but didn't pick it up. I figured some people need the luck more than me but now after reading your posts I'm thinking I could really use that penny for some disney time sweepstake luck!

Wow, you have won a lot, and some $$ which is what I would prefer! You must enter far more contests than I do......or you are really lucky!

I have been a long time DIS boards lurker but this is my first post in a few years! I couldnt resist posting this story even though it's not a winning story! So for dinner I went to my DM's house and while I was there I asked to check her phone for any missed calls or voicemails (She's not too tech savvy with her phone or computer, and I've been entering for her entry on my own computer as well as my own). And low and behold I see 3 missed calls from a (212) area code from TUESDAY!! I started shaking and flipping out because I thought we had lost our chance!! While I'm interrogating my DM on why she didnt answer when I told her what number to look out for, my DBF googled the number and discovered it was a new york based moving company, not Ventura. I guess not getting a winning call is better than missing it completely!
