What City did you get? When you send your information note that you want to know which city or email her if your already sent in your info.

There are 100 winners total at 10 per city. Wins were doled out not based on where you live. I got Chicago and I m in Los Angeles.

Yahoo undervalued the ARV on some cities. Los Angeles is worth at least $1,000. Detroit has Thai food for 4 once a month for a year, 26 tulip bouquets, and a pizza party for 20 people. I hope you get a good city. I got dibs on Los Angeles.

Philly. Will probably have to sell or trade some of these.

Hibberd's Books 50 eclectic rare art books and literature this is an antiquity dealer so 50 books alone would have to be $500, don't you think?
Le Bec-Fin A 5-star, 8-course dining experience for 2 I looked this one up $135 per person
Rittenhouse Square Bed and Breakfast One luxurious night of romance or a night on the town $209-259 a night

Geno's Steaks 6 of Philadelphia's best cheesesteaks per month for a year $6 a sandwich x 6 x 12 = over $400

Sansome Street Oyster House An oyster party for 15

Market Blooms fresh flowers every month for a year

Pierre & Carlo European
Salon & Spa worth of haircuts
L'Angolo Ristorante An authentic South Philly Italian experience for you and 9 friends

Di Bruno Bros. Glorious cheeses and gourmet products for a year Anthony's Italian Coffee House A year's supply of divine espresso

I'm thinking we may only get one or two GC's for a total of $500. It sure looks like a lot of stuff.

After looking up the stuff listed, I am pretty sure we will only get one gift certificate, but it will be a doozy!

You can e-mail back and ask which city you won. If anyone in Philly area won Atlanta...I am game to trade. I have no hope of getting there this year. Here was my reply to asking which city I won:
The city is Philadelphia. I am send out some paperwork that
you need
to fill out notarized and return to me to confirm that you are a
winner.
Also, at this point we haven't been given any information regarding
the
gift certificates except that they are for $500.

Won Philly and live in Florida. Does anyone know if these GC's will be transferable - rules say no. Guess we'll have to wait for the affy and see if it tells us exactly what we won. If I'm not able to order my prize(s) online and if we are able to trade, I would like to trade for Atlanta if anyone would be interested.

I am confused, is it all the things listed or only one of the vendors, Hope it is from one of the people that send cross country or can trade. Would have loved to won in philly, I have three sons in the area.

Just grateful for win and the adventure of finding out what I won.

But it didn't reference any city...just said it was for a $500 GC. We'll see what happens with the affie...cuz having to pay for notarizing on a prize potentially non-usable will be the acid test. If it's just a flat-out GC...like a Mastercard or American Express gift card...hey, no problem.

Happy, but we'll see.

Edit:

now that I've checked out those prize links, Mechurchlady...you and me are gonna have to thumb wrestle or toss tiddly-winks for the Los Angeles prize, LOL. Tell you what, you'll be invited to one of the several great dinners for me and "ten friends." :laugh:

...but luck being what it is, I'll probably end up with a couple oil changes in Detroit....

OK, I get it now. 10 winners for each promotion - 100 winners total. (I re-read Churchlady's post). Each prise is probobly worth $500 and we probobly only win one GC... I think 10 GCs are listed for each city - I think that makes more sense. I hope I win the Jolie Day Spa (Atlanta) because I can use that where I live now.

Prize descriptions are suggestions only. Each winner will receive a certificate to purchase up to $500 in goods.

So guess what there is a little catch here. These are not the prizes.

The following applies to all prizes: Selections are subject to product/vendor availability. Select products may be limited and while supplies last. Each vendor's normal terms and conditions apply. Gift certificates must be redeemed by December 31, 2005, unless otherwise noted on the prize certificate. Limit one Prize per winner in each Sweepstakes, for a total of 10 possible Prizes in the Promotion. Prizes cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer. Prizes may not be transferred or assigned except by Sponsor. Only listed Prizes will be awarded and no substitutions, cash equivalents or redemptions will be made, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize package with another prize of equal or greater value in the event that the advertised prize (or any component thereof) is not available. If a winner does not redeem the full value of the prize certificate with the vendor offering the Prize, winner forfeits the remainder of the Prize; no refunds will be provided. Expenses not specifically stated above, together with the reporting and payment of all applicable taxes, fees, and/or surcharges, if any, arising out of, or resulting from, acceptance or use of a Prize, are the sole responsibility of the winner of that Prize. Yahoo! expressly disclaims any responsibility or liability for injury or loss to any person or property relating to the delivery and/or subsequent use of the prizes awarded. Yahoo! makes no representations or warranties concerning the appearance, safety, or performance of any prize awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations apply. Sponsors and Administrators will not replace any lost or stolen prize items.

I'm feeling a bit out of the loop here, since my computer is in the shop, and I've only been able to access OLS during my lunch break at work.

I found out that I won Detroit. I don't live close to ANY of the cities listed. I was hoping that I could redeem at least some of the prizes via the sponsors' websites. Otherwise, I really can't use any of the prizes. I looked at the prize list, and it doesn't look too promising for me.

I would be happy to trade, but didn't churchlady's previous post state that the prizes are not transferrable?

If anyone wants to clue in this clueless person, please do! I feel like I may be missing some important details.

I think we all might be a little premature in trying to trade off certificates. In my own humble opinion and analysis of this promotion, I am leaning towards the idea that perhaps the gift certificate is not going to be location specific. I base this on:

Rules specifically say that entrant can enter each promo 1x, not limited to area. It would be fairly easy to set up 10 separate sweeps limiting who may enter or clearly define who the sweep was restricted to, but they didn't regulate it that way. It is open to all of US. Why would the sponsor (Yahoo!) want to give away $500 for NYC to someone in Chicago and/or 9 other locations? In total they are giving away $50,000 in a promo to market their search engine. They want happy users, not 100 people who have to pay taxes on a win they can't use. Either way Yahoo! can/will write off their money, but again, the sweep is two fold, tax purposes for company as well as cheap marketing.

2nd point - Logistics - In my opinion it would be difficult to purchase 100 separate gift certificates from 100 different vendors. It would be much easier to purchase 100 national store gift certificates or prepaid credit cards, or worse case - cut 100 checks, all of which would ensure winner being able to use gc, in which winner paid taxes.

Affy does NOT state which vendor winner will receive, giving winner no option to make a reasonable decision as to whether to pay taxes on the win, thus the possibility of unhappy people, bad marketing strategy.

No one has received a definitive answer from sweepstake coordinator, or an answer that would confirm the gift certificate is from one of the 10 vendors per sweep. My answer was that it was unknown currently.

Again, just my opinion.

To answer hkhart:

1. Did you win?
2. Sponsors will be sponsors so I do not put anything past them.
3. I agree that there are a lot of questions that will remain unanswered until the certificates arrive. It would be rather easy to buy to certificates in each city though. When you got lots of hirelings to go shopping anything is possible.
4. I figured that it the list of prizes was an example not the real prizes. The total for Los Angeles could easily top $1200 and some prizes where worth less than $300.

Hugs and I am waiting for my affy. She said it should be here by Monday. :cheer7:

hkhart
November 13th, 2004, 1:27am
Yes, I did win for NYC - I got my affy yesterday and notarized today - will send back Monday.
There are 10 possible prizes for each city - thus the 10 vendors listed on each page. Each vendor was 1 possible prize / option that you could buy with the $500, not that winner gets all of the prizes listed.

Thank you, hkhart. I had asked a question previously about transferring prizes and was totally ignored in everyone's rush to copy and paste the "list". You make some valid points. I don't think there's any need for someone to respond to you in such a snippy manner.......imo.

I don't think there's any need for someone to respond to you in such a snippy manner.......imo.

Sorry if I sounded snippy. I have had major computer porblems caused by ScanDisk. I have been trying to keep up with a lot of things and my gmail would not let me in, scandisk still is giving me trouble. I have been taking a lot of shortcuts and sorry if I am snippy.

I already had postulated that all the prizes could not be given out and that they were examples. hkhart came up with the final solution and that is much appreciated. I wish sponsors would explain things better. Yahoo showed 10 great prizes and but did not say that they were one to a winner.

As for the transferring of the prizes the rules imply that is not allowed. I may save mine for the convention in 2005. I would be close to Chicago. I got my Delta ticket too.

Detroit 5, Dallas 4, Philly 3, Atlanta and Washington DC and New York City 2, Los Angeles and San Francisco and Chicago 1. Boston is ZIP, nada and no one has said they won that town.

I would be more than happy with a $500 debit card or check. It would save the hassle of trading (if trades are possible).
I didn't get my affy yet, so maybe on Monday. Fed Ex runs a little behind here in the boonies.

November 13th, 2004, 9:46am
It's all good, right? We've won...something...LOL.

I don't have the affy yet, but those who have reported it doesn't give any further clarification. HKhart's theory sounds quite reasonable to me, but then again everyone's lining up to "trade prizes" seems like a fun and reasonable thing too. :gvibes:

Mechurchlady's response didn't sound snippy to me, plus she wisely put a "hugs" in it to allay that impression.

Anyway, I'm tending to think all the "specified prizes" under each city's terms could likely be "serving suggestions" as to what $500 could buy in each city, rather than the specific item. Additionally, as HKhart mentioned, the logisitics of fufilling all these various vendor-specific prizes could be a real hassle for all the vendors, contest administrators and winners. The "nature" of this promo was to highlight their local search capability (and maybe help Yahoo sell premium placement to vendors), and they've already accomplished that. That, I think, is the broader goal than sending 100 entrants to 100 vendors.

In the (always likely) event I'm dead wrong, and we WILL all have a bunch of bunch of oil change coupons redeemable 1000 miles from our homes, my past experience suggests that the non-transferrable aspect shown in the rules notwithstanding, those coupons may well be transferrable. Several prizes I've won were characterized as "non-transferrable" but the actual prize was easily so. For instance, Southwest Airlines prizes are nearly always "green tickets" which are just blank tix, valid system wide for one year. Sizzler dinners where just a card, and McDonalds coupons sure didn't have my name on each McDollar. You could give them to anyone, and nobody would know the difference.

The same logistical problem that argues for generic AMEX or VISA shopping cards *also* suggests that "Joe's Muffler Shop" is more likely to issue a chit for a free muffler that DOESN'T have MeChurchLady typed out on it.

Either way, let the shopping spree or community garage sales begin, LOL.

I already got plans for the restaurants if I get them. I got a Delta ticket and plan to use that to go to the convention. I could get a party bus headed to chicago. I wonder if I did not ruffles some Orange County citizen's feathers by not offering to take him to the convention. I am looking at the prizes from the point of view of a CEO who has lots of people to work for him.
Current betting stats
$500 in certificates from a local merchant.
Churchy $10

$500 in certificates from several or many merchants.

Place your bets.

I am still curious why we did not have a Boston winner yet.

November 13th, 2004, 1:24pm
I did not take Mechurchlady's response to be snippy :gvibes:

I hope we get a plain ol' generic Visa or Amex but if not, I could possibly have $500 worth of pie headed my way! I certainly hope it isn't the oil changes - as if I ever even made it to NYC, I would certainly not be driving! Valuable as it may be, just wouldn't work for me!

Ok, I sent my affy in today then I sat to look at all of the prizes for LA again and something dawned on me. I had one of those Homer Simpson DUHH moments! I didn't actually win the prizes listed. I only won ONE of the prizes listed! :frown2:

The affy was as confusing as the rules. The only way I figured it out was:
1. I knew there were 10 winners in each city
2. I knew that there were more than $500 worth of prizes
3. I was looking at the list and realized there were exactly ten prizes listed! DUHH :rolleyes:

Now I am kind of mad at myself for being so gullible and at Yahoo for not making things clearer and for awarding prizes in Columbus Ohio for things like a tune up and oil change in Los Angeles! :mad2:

Oh well I guess I will sit back and see what comes. hopefully it will be something I can sell. I will be even more upset if I end up with a tax burden on a prize I can't sell or trade.

I got my affy yesterday and mailed it off. It was vague $500 value. It asked for everything SS# DOB, address, copy of drivers license and had you fill out a W-9 get it all notarized then you had to go to a Fed Ex drop off and ask them for an envelope to send it back (they provided the charge code on the Fed Ex form). I still have no idea what I won. I emailed the administrator and she told me I got DC....I am in Atlanta. I hope it is something we can use online or can trade. It is strange for there not to be any mention of what exactly you won...oh well.

Philly. Will probably have to sell or trade some of these.

Hibberd's Books 50 eclectic rare art books and literature this is an antiquity dealer so 50 books alone would have to be $500, don't you think?
Le Bec-Fin A 5-star, 8-course dining experience for 2 I looked this one up $135 per person
Rittenhouse Square Bed and Breakfast One luxurious night of romance or a night on the town $209-259 a night

Geno's Steaks 6 of Philadelphia's best cheesesteaks per month for a year $6 a sandwich x 6 x 12 = over $400

Sansome Street Oyster House An oyster party for 15

Market Blooms fresh flowers every month for a year

Pierre & Carlo European
Salon & Spa worth of haircuts
L'Angolo Ristorante An authentic South Philly Italian experience for you and 9 friends

Di Bruno Bros. Glorious cheeses and gourmet products for a year Anthony's Italian Coffee House A year's supply of divine espresso

I'm thinking we may only get one or two GC's for a total of $500. It sure looks like a lot of stuff.

As per mechurchlady's first post: "REPLY: Full Name, address, telephone number and age must be mailed back within 7 days of receivin the email. Notarized affy to be sent later." My email didn't say anything about mailing anything, there wasn't even an address, just phone and fax #s and email address, so I just replied to the email with the required info. Am I missing something here? What did all of you do? Also, there was no mention as to what city. I would love Philly but would take NYC. Should I bother bothering Ms Goodwin with an inquiry or just wait and see what I get? Also, why must we fill out a W-9 if the prize is less than $600? I'm really confused, has anyone yet recieved the prize. Please let us know when you do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

November 17th, 2004, 6:49pm
First you send in your basic info to which you will then receive affy by Fedex. That packet of info you then fill out and notorize and send back via FedEx. The info you get by FedEx states the city that you won for. Personally, I think everyone is emailing to get info as we are all anxious to find out, but in reality, if you entered more than 1 city, you took the chance to win any of them, so it really doesn't matter. The W-9 they are requiring I would guess so they can track their own investment. I've had to fill one out for $400 and not fill one out for prize more than $600. From what I understand it is required for >$600 but optional (per company) for < $600 - noting ALL wins being equally taxable regardless of value.

I need some advice here...I don't want to pay taxes on $1000 worth of wins that we are not going to use (2 wins, Detroit and Atlanta.) On the affy, it reiterates that it is not transferable except by sponsor.Does that mean that the issuer of a GC can tell you it's ok to give it to someone else? Or Yahoo? Anyhow, this whole thing is sitting wrong with me. $300 is a lot to pay in taxes for a win that you could refuse, but you really can't since you don't know what it IS YET!!!!

I said a web caretificate or visa would be much appreciated. I know they won't do anything but it is a strange set up. It is like having a sweep with prizes that will never be used.

I got the win email on Wednesday, and I called yesterday to find out what city I won. I won Dallas. A funny thing is that I didn't comment on the location win - Marci just offered the information that the locations were assigned randomly. I'm not sure what that meant. This was supposed to be 10 separate sweepstakes, but she almost made it sound like the drawing was lumped into one big one. Do you all remember if you entered all 10 of them? For the life of me, I can only remember entering for a few cities, not all of them.

As churchy said, thanks to LuckySarah and all those who are trying to help us all get what we want. I've added my name to the list below.

actually the prize desription is still available.

Yours would be http://promotions.yahoo.com/localfinds/static/newyork_ae.html

However at the bottom of the page you will see the following note; Prize descriptions are suggestions only. Each winner will receive a certificate to purchase up to $500 in goods.

I read that as meaning you'll receive either a single certificate for one of the vendors listed on the page or hopefully, something like an American Express gift certificate that could be used anywhere.

gcomstock
November 19th, 2004, 3:46pm
I need some advice here...I don't want to pay taxes on $1000 worth of wins that we are not going to use (2 wins, Detroit and Atlanta.) On the affy, it reiterates that it is not transferable except by sponsor.Does that mean that the issuer of a GC can tell you it's ok to give it to someone else? Or Yahoo? Anyhow, this whole thing is sitting wrong with me. $300 is a lot to pay in taxes for a win that you could refuse, but you really can't since you don't know what it IS YET!!!!


Frustrated,
marjorie in NY :frown3:

I'm in the same boat. Got the affie yesterday (Chicago) and called Marci. She was affable, but bascially a staffer at a fufillment company. I carefully repeated my questions several times, repectfull of her limited knowledge of the prizing details. Finally she asked me to hold and checked with a higher up.

Came back on the line to say "all the prizes are in individual envelopes marked only to indicate the city. Kept pushing the "specific vendor prize vs. generic gift card" question...which could rather easily be answered if somebody just took an envelope in their hand....you could feel a credit card sized electronic gift card vs. a paper GC. She reiterated she did know, and it was apparent they weren't going to call Yahoo, or go check the envelopes.

At this point, after reveiw the Chicago prizes, I'm inclined to decline. She requested we write DECLINE and FedEx the affies back if we choose that route. Will decide by Monday, and in the mean time trying to find some way of contacting Yahoo Promotions....though previous attempts at getting phone contact with them have been failures. You'd think with several thousand employees that some of them have phones, LOL.

gcomstock
November 19th, 2004, 4:38pm
As mentioned above, got the affie indicating Chicago, but most of the prizes look like extremely limited utility for me on the West Coast, and will probably decline (unless someone can explain why I should not). Seems Yahoo is spinning a lot of wheels, so I at least wanted to give 'em some feedback.

After calling all the Advertising sales and customer service numbers I could find...it's clear the YahooLocal folks don't want calls...so I sent feedback. Not expecting a response, and *certainly* no succssful resolution. If you won for a city near your home, or to which you travel, then your prize may well be useful. If not, this whole trading thing *might* work, despite violating the rules, and could possibly be a little fun. Seems more certain in will be a pain in the neck and big waste of time.

*****************
Your Yahoo Local Finds promotion was generous, compelling, and very confusing, LOL. I have several acquaintances who like myself have become WINNERS. Your fufillment company, FSIsolutions have patiently tried to answer our questions, but dozens of us remain in a quandry which only Yahoo can answer. Yet you remain hard to contact, if not exactly sequestered.

See, we need to pay a notary to claim a prize, and provide a social security number which means we will incur a tax obligation...for "who knows what prize." Forget briefly that somebody in Chicago won a California prize...maybe they travel frequently like I do. A nice restaurant prize could be sweet, but a years worth of oil changes...no thanks.

We understand the logic of allowing US-wide residents to enter for local prizes nationwide; indeed that highlights how I use YahooLocal...to research vendors in areas I don't know like the back of my hand. The problem is that by requiring we spend $ for notarizing, and agreeing "sight unseen" to pay taxes, you're putting your gentle readers in a contentious circumstance: not the incentive and reward you probably intend, and NOT the goodwill enthused customer base you "sold" to the vendors who contributed prizes.

FSIsolutions indicates their direction is to randomly choose sealed envelopes and send them out (confirming the pig-in-a-poke scenario described above).

In our opinion, you would better serve us winners by 1. simply sending out pre-funded gift cards, plus a specific vendo'rs sales info (eg. a brochure from the muffler shop), or 2. letting winners KNOW which random prize they've potentially won before making them jump through hoops and spend money/incur taxes. You're only giving away 100 prizes, so this isn't much more logistically daunting a task than the way you're rolling it out now.

Thanks, obviously, for the chance to win prizes (on behalf of my couple dozen fellow winners), but this one is feeling surprisingly narf'd up.

ATTENTION EVERYONE: It was :supstar: Lucky Sarah :supstar: who submitted the contest and we should all thank her. Sorry but I sometimes in my one hour a day forget things so important.
THANK YOU SARAH SO DIVINE.

Please do not give up hope on your prize as there are lots of people who will take local gift certificates off of your hands. There are options and we must wait and see. Have faith.

Shortcut to editting this list and adding your name. just quote someone who has the list, then delete the quote marks. That looks like 40 so far. We hav a winner from each city. Hoping Chasemansmon won twice. Thank you hkhart and here is hoping we all get what we want. OLS Citizens have raked in over a third of the prizes. Thanks goes to misaacmom for her contribution to Notes that helped some of us win. Thanks to LuckySarah for submitting this contest to OLS and remember when you win you should hug her.

NOTICE: Some prize will have online merchandise, so, do not give up hope. You have until the 26th to get them there unless you talk to Marci and she is very nice. If you did not receive an affy by today Monday then contact Marci at the previously posted email address. If you did not get a two page affy, Fedex mailing slip, W9 IRS form, and another page that requires info contact her. Do not forget to send a copy of your ID. You should have received an email from Marci and emailed her back with your personal information by now.

I've added my name to the list, joanns, I found out yesterday that I won Los Angeles. I
would consider trading for Philly or New York City. Like most winners, I would prefer
a gift card and do not like the idea of paying taxes on an unknown win, but the win
is very much appreciated and exciting. I will receive my FedEx package on Monday.
Like gcomstock, I may end up declining the win, I'll see how I feel about it next week.

Thanks, tamaram1120, for posting those links! I REALLY want San Francisco now! I could see how trading could very well work out for several people here. Who has decided to accept his/her prize? I'm leaning towards accepting it, but I want to get an idea of how many we have here who are accepting it. I don't have to return my affy until Dec. 2 because I was notified later than most of you (I was probably an alternate winner).

Hi, I have no second thoughts about saying 'yes'. It is a $500 prize and I will end up paying what? $100 at most on my taxes, but in reality, I always get a refund so, who cares? I am sure these will be generic gift cards but if not, I am sure as much time as I spend online entering these sweeps, I can spend a little to make a trade with another OLSer. I would really hate to say no and find out everyone got $500 Amex cards and got a lot of christmas shopping done. If I get "12 oil changes" (which I doubt) I have the energy to get creative about it.

This is what I found in small letters at the bottom of the page.

Prize descriptions are suggestions only. Each winner will receive a certificate to purchase up to $500 in goods.

Congrats to all the winners.

Yes, we are hoping that means it will be a debit card type thing. We'll have to wait until they start getting mailed out to see what they actually are.

First person to receive anything please post ASAP!

My dh just got an email saying that he was a potential winner of the Yahoo Local Best of the Best. However, no GC was mentioned (nor city), BUT it stated that the prize was a trip for 2 to the city of his choice (Boston, Chicago, NY, LA, San Fran). Is this the right sweeps? I can't find another one with a different prize. Any ideas?

Gave it the old college try, called the fufillment company and several differnt Yahoo numbers. Yahoo didn't reply, so I expect what I was told was correct: that the fufillment company simply has envelopes labeled by cities, and they will randomly select them for that city's final verified winners. Based on the list of possible prizes for Chicago (I live in LA), I decided not to bother notarizing and returning the affie,

Called and emailed them with that decision.

Sorry for yanking any chains.

She told me that since the prizes were under $600 I would not have to pay taxes, and to leave my SS# off of the w-9. They were due yesterday, but she is very nice and allowed me an extra day to get the affys there.
I was holding out sending them, but that is what I wanted to hear...the taxes were the issue for me if I wasn't going to use the prize.

Not to burst any bubbles, but I received a hand-written gift certificate, made out to me for the specific restaurant I won from. I know it would have been nice to have received a generic gift card, or even the one from that nice boutique that sells Prada, but a gift is a gift and I live so close, I'm sure my friends and family will be able to spend it no problemo!

Hi Guys,
Got the FedX envelope today. I don't think they're transferable. Luckily I got a GC for la forna's restaurant in the village of NYC made out specifically to me. Looked them up in Zagats and really good affordable Spanish food. Thinking of a goup of about 8 of us going on New Years Eve. Sangria and Tapas all around! I live about an hour west of the city and I'm just so happy I didn't get the oil change. I hope everyone gets what they can use.

FWIW...I declined as previously mentioned, but sent several comments, emails and phone calls Yahoo's way. In all I tried to be appreciative, and constructive. But explaining why I declined my prize, I wanted them to know what about their promotion was off target for their customers (those of us who use Yahoo for local away-from-home info) and their sponsors (those local companies who offered prizes, and advertise through Yahoo).

To me, advertising and internet promotion is all about focus. Yes, the web's scope is massively broad, but ultimately all "transactions" are person to person, from one account number into another. That is: the virtuality and anonymity of the internet aside, NOBODY should lose the personal touch if they want to be effective.

Today I finally got a response from "Lisa" at Yahoo who said she'd passed my comments on to the individuals in their marketing and promotions department, and that they *should* respond in a little while. This is Monday Night Football, and we at OS might get the chance to interview the Ref who made the lousy call, which instant replay ultimately reversed. In otherwords, I hope that one of the haircuts at Yahoo recognizes us fleeces (eg. the numbers they tout to prospective advertisers) are all warm blooded sheeps, who lover our lambs and like our meadow flowers fresh, please. In even further words, I hope to use assertive feedback to shape the nature of future giveaways in a way beneficial to us lil lambs, AND the sponsors.

Not sure if I even got my affy in on time, to tell the truth. I was so torn; didn't know if it was even worth my time to send it in. I finally decided to do it at the last minute. I couldn't find a local Fedex drop-off, so I just sent it regular mail. I guess I don't expect much from this one. I won for Detroit and I don't live anywhere near Detroit, so if I can't use it on-line, I can't use it at all. That's just my dumb luck. The one time I win something, it's a prize I (probably) can't use. Oh well. Someday, I'm gonna win something good! :smile9:

Hello...just noticed this thread. I was one of the DC winners...

I was really hoping for chicago...as my screen name might lead you to believe...I lived in Chicago for a few years, so my family usually travels back there on at least an annual basis.

Sorry for my ignorance in asking this question...but are you posting the winners in case people want to trade?

If that's the case...I'll let everyone know when I get my DC prize...I'm not sure what it is...apparently they haven't picked the random envelope yet for me! (I did get and return the affidavit)

First of all, congrats! Yes, plus just to see what everyone is getting. See mechurchlady's post #174, and follow the instructions to add your name to the list. That would be helpful. We are all hoping that the majority of people will be able to get what they want, so please post again when you receive your prize.

At first we were hoping for trades. I wanted frisco, Dallas or LA. We now know that the certificates are only good in person, in the city that you won and in your name. I am teh least screwed because I have an airline ticket and my name is Smith. I will add you name to the list. Only 3 people have reported receiving their prizes. It is my assumption that Yahoo knew what the prizes were from the beginning. It is a shame that we have so many winners and cannot switch.

You were already on the list and I updated it.

Churchlady,

You'll have to let me know which one you win.

I used to live in the neighborhood in Chicago that all of the prizes appear to be from. Either Strega Nona or Fly Me To the Moon would be fun...Fly me to the Moon is about a block away from Wrigley Field...so you'll have to catch a Cubs game if you go...

Thanks for updating me on the list...

You should have received an email from Marci and emailed her back with your personal information by now as that is the first step, then the affy will be sent and then you send it back.

RED for the city won. DarkOrange for the cities wanted. GREEN for declined. PURPLE for received the certificate. BLUE for keeping it.

I received a fed-ex from Yahoo! today with the GC in it.
I had won in the Philly area.
It's a restaurant GC.

Bluffy, where do you live? The other received wins were in New York.

I was thinking if I get a food type (or haircut) gift certificate, then I will contact the restaurant and see if I can donate it to a local shelter. Then google to find a shelter. I can take that off my taxes so it won't be a total loss.
I am still hoping for one of the Philly prizes that can be used online.

December 17th, 2004, 3:27pm
I don't live anywhere near Philly and have never been there...
The GC was for L'Angolo Ristorante for $500 and does NOT have my name on it. It's just a straight forward GC for $500.
So I would assume this one can be sold, traded or donated.

I would prefer something I could use online of course.

I can't beleive it! I got mine and it just looks like a cash register receipt. Its for Goombah's Pizzeria in Royal Oak Mi. It was paid for with a visa card, couldn't they have sent a visa card instead? I hate to sound ungrateful but this was a very poorly run sweep. Should have been only able to enter for local area. Anyone want to trade? Sorry for my little rant but I won a nice prize but in reality I won nothing. Why does this not suprise me? :frown3:

Does anyone know how to find out the balance on the gift cards?
Mine is from Restaurant.com, but when I go to the site they only have instructions for checking the balance on "mega certificates" and the number on the card doesn't work. I also tried calling the number on the card and I get a menu about 4 minutes long, mostly about health care benefits. ?????
I guess I will try Customer Service on Monday.
This will be up for trade. I have already PM'd the first person who contacted me about the Philly win.

Not that I want to trade or sell since I am only about an hour west of the city, but mine was all hand filled out with my name on the line that says this gift cerificate entities: (hand filled out) Yahoo Local Search Winner/ MY NAME, To select Merchandise or Service valued at: (hand filled out) Five Hundred dollars. Presented By (hand filled) someones signature, looks like ML Luyris V.P. This came in an envelope that says: "A Gift for You" and on the outside someone wrote my name and then the word CONGRADULATIONS! (their spelling). Just wanted to let everyone know what mine looked like for those that have not received their's yet.

This sweep was sooooo uninformed.
You got me and I updated the list. For everyone else the list was updated and I will not repost it unless there is something major or to bump it.

Seawind also declined his win.

I believe the whining payed off. If you have any new info on you win include the name of the place, city, date received and if a name was on the actually certificate. So far it has been mainly Detroit and Philly.

NEW INFO. Since we have the winners from Detroit we now know that the names of the places listed on the contest site are the same names that have been received. There were 8 winners from Detroit so for you guys here is what is left: Thai Cafe, Astoria Pastry Shop, Club Soleil (tanning), Dent Eliminators, and Shine (candles).

I live in Ohio and Dallas is too far for me to go to spend a win and there is nothing close to me I can travel too so I will have to sale mine if I can because trading will not do me any good. It would figure the one big win I win and I can't use it. You would have thought the contest would have been set up so no matter where you lived at the gs would have been good at!

mechurchlady
December 18th, 2004, 1:41am
Some of us maybe able to have someone buy the stuff locally.

Dallas has a bakery/cafe, hotel, theater, shirtmaker, cowboy store, 2 salons, a shoe store, a flower/gift store, and a restaurant. Susan you are lucky enough to get a city with stores as Chicago is almost all bars and restaurants.

Here is hoping you can arrange for someone to buy locally. It might also be cheap to take a Greyhound bus for a quick shopping spree.

Hello. I called last week to find out the status of the DC winners. The representative from the sweepstakes administrator told me that they were still trying to firm up one winner from Washington, DC.

Apparentlyk, for some reason, they won't send any of the gift certificates out until they have finalized all ten winners in the given city.

I mentioned to her that I had plans to go to DC in the next two weeks, and she apologized, saying that I wouldn't likely have the GC until after the first of the year!

Oh well...as it is, I live six hours away from DC, so I'll probably not use it anyway... if anybody out there is a Chicago, or NYC winner, and wants to trade for DC, let me know!

Thanks,
Jason

jasonchicago
December 20th, 2004, 2:53am
By the way...just my 2 cents worth, but it seems odd to complain about a win.

The contest was called Yahoo Local Finds! and the whole premise of the contest was to foster local usage of the Yahoo search engine in people's neighborhoods.

http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3416641

Given that, it seems entirely appropriate that they would have bought local prizes, designed to be consumed by someone in their local community. I live in the middle of nowhere...and Yahoo isn't likely going to be making any money by setting up Yahoo Oneonta, or Yahoo Binghamton, anytime in the near future.

I made a decision to enter the contest, and I only entered the contest for locales in which I either had friends that I might gift the prize to, or places that I visit for either work or pleasure.

Of course I'll be bummed if I win $500 worth of oil changes, or coffee...but I don't think this is a sign of a poorly designed promotion...after all, we're all the ones who decided to enter it!

:gift:

OK, I just found this thread this a.m.; I am a winner for Los Angeles part of the Yahoo! Local Search Contest and I live in Royal Oak, MI, where it seems many of the businesses whose gift certificates are from.

I'm totally confused about how to put my name on "THE LIST," its late and my eyes are crossing from reading all 15 pages of this thread. So if someone who is in the know could add me to "THE LIST," I would be much obliged!

Here's my story: I Fed-Ex'd Marci my W-9 and the rest of the notarized stuff with ample time to meet the established deadline. I have NOT received my G.C.(s) and am intensely curious to see what I've won. I agree that the whole thing has been a tad mystifying, but I chose to play each city knowing there was a possibility the G.C. might be from a business 1500 miles away - these are the chance(s) I took to win anything regardless of location. If it works out that I can swap with someone, great. If not, I'm off to L.A. to visit some cousins... I will say that I saw someone had $500 for Holiday Market in Royal Oak and it is a fantastic grocery store and that $500 of groceries would obvioiusly come in handy. I'm going to go back through the listing and PM that winner (I think they were from CA) [update 4:58 a.m. found and PM'd her] - it all depends upon whether my name is scrawled on the G.C., really, as to whether or not I'm off to L.A. :jet:

:royal: Thanks to Mechurchlady for keeping this thread organized and to everyone else whose tried to make sense of this contest. Can it be that OLS'ers have snagged 50% of the wins?????

Peace & Love,

Todd (aka: palgraf)

are starting to arrive.

I got a single $500 Gift Card to Twist (Home of the $5 Martini)
or any other 'HereToServeRestaurant' heretoserverestaurants.com in the Atlanta area.

I was hoping it might be something I could use on my infrequent trips to Atlanta but $500 in Martinis etc is just a little beyond my limits. On the plus side there is absolutely no identifiing characteristics on the card so I can't see any reason it can't be passed off to somebody else.

Does anyone know for sure whether the prizes are or aren't transferrable? Mine is made out to "Yahoo Local Finds Winner", but there was a concern expressed to me by another member that the business would have my name on file, and therefore probably wouldn't honor the certificate if someone else tried to use it. Does anyone have any insight on this?

December 20th, 2004, 6:19pm
I e-mailed the restaurant that I won from to see if there were any restrictions on the card, but I haven't heard back from them.
My card doesn't have a name or amount on it anywhere.

I won for New York, not San Francisco. The wrong list keeps getting copied. I haven't decided if I will keep it or not, but I do know it can not be used online.

Update: I was going to call Scoop store, but found email link and sent message. They responded right away and said that their website was going to be revamped Jan 2005 and that I could use gift card online, but if I couldn't wait, I could call and order via phone!!! I'm thrilled now! I've already got it spent on a $400 purse... Needless to say, the gc won't go very far on their website!! :cheer7: :cheer7: :cheer7:

I corrected this for you and honspro in post #187. If anyone notices any incorrect info for him/herself, PLEASE make the correction yourself and repost the list. The following should be correct now, hopefully.

I sent mine to my daughters friend in Mi. with the understanding he was to purchase some pizzas for a homeless shelter with part of it. Way to complicated to trade and I didn't want to ebay so this worked out good for me. LOL to you all,I hope you can all exchange for what you want.

It's for a year of concerts at the Roxy Coca-Cola Theatre in Atlanta. I don't know how many concerts you get for $500, but it's for two tickets each time.

I would love to swap this one...it's a super win for someone near atlanta!!!

HOW PRIZES ARE BEING DOLED OUT

When all 10 winners for a city have been verified stamped and what ever, then they send out the certificates. It could take a month if some paperwork was not done right. IF a winner declines the a new person would have to be contacted and thus a delay. Marci will be off until the first Monday in January. The third i think. Be patient everyone.

I would like to update the list fully but oh well. :frown3:
