View Full Version : Alexander the Great Instant Win Game ends today, how many times did you win?

November 7th, 2004, 4:28am
The History Channel - Scratch Off and Conquer with Alexander the Great Instant Win Game

This contest ran 32 days with the following prizes:
Grand Prizes (20): $50 Borders gift card.
First Prizes (50): Greece calendar from Borders (ARV $11.99).
Second Prizes (50): Film development voucher from Ritz Camera Centers (ARV $10).
Third Prizes (100,000): Movie rental from Hollywood Video (ARV $3.75).

I have 13 and mom has 2 third place wins.
I just was wondering if anyone won everyday.
Did anyone lose everyday?
Where there anomalies like that I entered my mother first each time and then myself. The only time she won was on the 5th and the 7th. Then I would enter and win. Most of my wins came during the last two weeks of the contest.

November 7th, 2004, 5:05am
I had 12 video rental wins...........

November 7th, 2004, 5:10am
I ended up with nine video rentals and a fifty dollar GC to Borders. :cheer7:
Sorry to see it end.

November 7th, 2004, 7:00am
I ended up with twelve. My hubby has 6, and my daughter got 8. These are going to make great XMAS stocking stuffers for someone. :jump:

I won every day this week!

Can't say I'm disappointed about 9 movies for winter evenings!

November 7th, 2004, 7:13am
I didnt play everyday, but I ended up with 7.

November 7th, 2004, 7:24am
I must be up to about 10. I basically stopped counting. :jump:

November 7th, 2004, 8:13am
I do apologize for not including "lost count", maybe KB will fix that. I have Gmail so I can findout how many I have.

A friend of mine is going to check the site out and then send the coupons in cards for the holidays.

Mom already has a list of movies she would like to see.

It is interesting that my mother did not win until 2 of the last three days of the contest. I also probably won eveyday this week. It is nice to know I did not have the most and that others also won a lot during the last week.

November 7th, 2004, 8:18am
I have won 13 times :cool2:

November 7th, 2004, 8:18am

November 7th, 2004, 8:37am
I played 15 times and won 13 times

November 7th, 2004, 8:41am
Wow, you guys sure won a lot!

I played 24 times and won 3 rentals. I thought I did well, now I'm depressed. Well, 1 in 7+, that's not too bad, is it? :)


November 7th, 2004, 8:41am
I've won twice. I won one rental, but haven't played lately. When I saw this post I went to play and won. I don't know what yet. J.T.

November 7th, 2004, 8:42am
I played 15 times and won 13 times

What time do you typically enter these daily sweeps?? Congratulations!


November 7th, 2004, 8:44am
I played 32 times and won 9 video rentals. A Hollywood video just opened here so I will be happy to get em in the mail so I can use em soon. Cold Weather keeps me inside most the time during winter :-) Oh. and I usually played during the morning - afternoon hours of eastern time. (9 am - 2 pm)

November 7th, 2004, 8:49am
I played every day and won 10 times.

November 7th, 2004, 8:52am
Won rentals 11 times, which is basically a year's worth for us. I'm really going to miss this one! It's the only instant I can win LOL

November 7th, 2004, 8:58am
I only missed a couple of days- I won 3 movie rentals. :)

November 7th, 2004, 9:01am
5 video rentals here.

November 7th, 2004, 9:30am
For those planning on using these as stocking stuffers. Don't forget they state you'll receive your rental certificates in <b>8 to 10 weeks</b> from close of contest. That's not until January.

November 7th, 2004, 10:02am
6 movie rentals. When they come, we will sure use them! Sure got me interested in the movie too. :toot:

November 7th, 2004, 10:03am
I just played and won again. My total is 5 now. :jump:
Wouldn't it be great if all instants were this easy.

PS. I just checked all my winning emails and I won 6 times not 5.

November 7th, 2004, 10:17am
9 times for me...no Hollywood video in my hometown but there is one in my sisters so I guess she is getting them for Christmas!

November 7th, 2004, 10:28am
I had 12 video rental wins...........

Same here ! :smile9:

November 7th, 2004, 10:29am
I've got the Hollywood video about 20 minutes away, but by the time we get the certificates, we'll be moved and there isn't any near where we're going!!
Guess mine will be gifts for my nephew.

My family (DH, Myself and DD) ended up with 16 but we didn't play every day. Wish I would have.

Sure going to miss this one.

November 7th, 2004, 11:29am
Lost count, sure its over 10 for me and over 4 for hubby

November 7th, 2004, 11:31am
I was just ready to put zero and then decided to do my last play before I answered. Lo and behold, I finally won something. I don't know what yet, probably a rental, but at least I did win after entering numerous times.

November 7th, 2004, 11:32am
I played at various times and won 15 times. Wish I had this kind of luck with other instants (like Kraft, Orbitz, or Columbia)!! :rolleyes:

November 7th, 2004, 11:34am
It will be missed. :frown3:

November 7th, 2004, 11:39am

November 7th, 2004, 12:51pm

I'm sorry I didn't see this one earlier. I won 2 out of 3 days. I always go to hollywood video, so I wish I had started earlier.

(But I just got my premium sweep, so I guess that's my fault for waiting so long.) :rolleyes:

November 7th, 2004, 1:10pm
I won everytime I played it. That was good one to enterm too bad it is gone. :rolleyes:

:cheer7: :cheer7: :cheer7: Good Luck everyone

November 7th, 2004, 1:32pm
I stopped counting after 20! Either my husband or I won pretty constantly.

November 7th, 2004, 1:34pm

November 7th, 2004, 1:42pm
i played everyday and won 25 times . . . now if it was only for a car!! lol

As if I could be that lucky!! :O)

November 7th, 2004, 1:43pm
I won 12. Got my sister started playing and she won 4. She has a Hollywood Video store just behind her house and there isn't one in my town so guess I will mail them all to her.

November 7th, 2004, 1:46pm
11 or 12 video rentals for my household. :gvibes:

November 7th, 2004, 1:46pm
I won 9 times and my husband won 8! We buy a video rental card with 15 videos and 5 small frozen yogurts from a local place for around $30, so I'm very happy with this win.

November 7th, 2004, 1:50pm
I've won 18 rentals. Great for the winter. :cheer7:

manic sweeper
November 7th, 2004, 2:33pm
I think I played about 20 times and did not win anything until the last 6 days of the contest-four video rentals.

November 7th, 2004, 2:39pm
I will miss Alexander :(
I won 10 video rentals

November 7th, 2004, 2:39pm
I think I won 7, but there isn't a store close by. I may give them to co-workers or have a contest on here.

November 7th, 2004, 2:54pm
I "only" won 5 rentals. Glad to see other folks won more than that and other prizes too. Congrats!

November 7th, 2004, 3:05pm
Thank God it's over! 22 for me. I just couldn't seem to lose. I think they call this "an embarrassment of riches" :royal:

November 7th, 2004, 4:45pm
I'm happy to say that I won 8 rentals and wish like everyone else that I had found it sooner. I play a couple dozen other instants daily but haven't had any luck on them.

I've only been sweepstaking since the end of September so these being my only wins tickle the daylights out of me!!!. I'm crossing my fingers for something larger.....greedy wench, aren't I?? :laugh:


November 7th, 2004, 5:15pm
I entered 14 times and won 4... pretty good odds! :gvibes:

November 7th, 2004, 5:25pm

thanks so much for posting this!!!! I had no idea there was a store near me!

November 7th, 2004, 11:02pm
14 video rentals between my dh & myself, if they are gift cards just like the store would sell you, I will probably give them to my kid's teachers this Christmas! Hopefully they will come in time.

November 8th, 2004, 12:14am
Two video rentals for me, and there's no Hollywood Video store within 50 miles of here.

More stuff for the FSOT list I'm making up.... me want iTunes codes....

November 8th, 2004, 12:22am
