Has anyone won gift cards from major companies such as gap and Old navy?
I just feel that some of these sweepstakes are scams. And also, has anone ever completed those offers that if they're completed, you recieve gift cards?

December 22nd, 2005, 2:05pm
2 $500 gift cards and a $50 gift card to blockbuster!!!

December 22nd, 2005, 2:06pm
The editors on this site work hard to keep scam sweepstakes out.

Some people say that some of the things where you jump through a dozen hoops and complete offers are legitimate, but there's only one company I hear mentioned in that capicity and I can't think of its name offhand.

Good luck! :)

Yep; $250 Best Buy card from cingular; $10.00 Starbucks gc from HP; $25.00 BP gas card. Check my wins to see if I left anything out.


December 22nd, 2005, 2:17pm
Gift card wins from major brand companies are legit.

I have won many throughout my years of sweeping.

I do not enter anything that asks me to complete an offer, these imo are a scam.

December 22nd, 2005, 2:17pm
I've won a $50.00 Pier 1 gc, a $25.00 Shell gasoline gc, and a $5.00 Sonic gc.

Those are not sweepstakes. You have to jump through hoops to get your "prize". It requires $$ and signing up for several offers. If you have the patience, go for it. JMHO

I like to win my gift cards. Good Luck.

December 22nd, 2005, 2:24pm
I've won giftcards from Circuit City, Best Western, Shell, and Citgo. You just have to keep entering! :gvibes:

never had....maybe one day

December 22nd, 2005, 2:42pm
I have won a $500 gc, and $100 GC.

If you are referring to the "sweeps" you get in your email that contain a link that goes to a survey. Those are scams and a waste of time.

If you find a sweep on this site that is giving away gift cards then it will most likely be legit.

December 22nd, 2005, 2:44pm
This year I won a $500 gift card for J.C. Penny, and it was used to buy a new couch.

$20 Bass Pro

I dont do surveys - these were all won on premium sweeps.

December 22nd, 2005, 2:59pm
If you're speaking of those gift card "offers", no I will not do those. As far as sweeps, I have won a few gift cards - Circuit City, etc. But no, I NEVER do those free gift card offers.

December 22nd, 2005, 3:00pm
To the person who started this thread,

Any gift cards as prizes listed on this website are legit. The emails you get in your box offering a *free gift card if you fill out surveys or sign up for things are not sweepstakes and they are not FREE. Chances are you have to sign up for a credit card (which means running a credit check which lowers your credit score), or magazine subscriptions, or buying a product you don't want. Those are not prizes, those are sort of scams (in my honest opinion)

So enter contests listed on this sight where the only thing you may have to sign up for is an email newsletter!


December 22nd, 2005, 3:02pm

I won a $100 Gap card. When I redeemed it, the clerk was quite surprised.
She said she very seldom saw a "giveaway" card (as opposed to a purchased gift card)
for more than $25.

I never do the "complete this offer" things. I've always assumed they are scams.

Oh yeah - I also won a $100 or $150 Best Buy Card.

I keep remembering these - I won a $100 Home Depot card.

And a $150 Regis card, and a $25 BP --- and a $250 Hollywood Video.

I have won $200 in AOL Virtual Visa good anywhere, $25 PacSun card from Ellegirl, $50 Best Buy gift card, and another $200 in American Express. All of these have been from legitimate sweeps. I don't waste my time with those who try to get me to fill out many pages of information. The one time I tried that, it was more hassle than it was worth. I signed up with Auto Advantage because they promised me $40 in free gas to sign up for a 1 month free trial with them. The coupons they sent had all kinds of stipulations. I cancelled the account when my month was up and didn't use the free gas coupons I was sent.

Has anyone won gift cards from major companies such as gap and Old navy?
I just feel that some of these sweepstakes are scams. And also, has anone ever completed those offers that if they're completed, you recieve gift cards?
When you say complete offer, you're not talking about a SWEEPSTAKES. you're talking about those stupid flashing banners that say "Congratulations! You've been selected for a FREE gift card!* (*Upon Completion of offers)" THOSE are crap, don't click them.

Now, when you enter a sweepstakes, all you have to give is your info, and tht's it, and yes, you can win.

On Christmas Eve I rec'd a surprise mail win from an A&E sweep - $20 Starbucks card.

A couple days ago, I rec'd a $10 American Express card from a freebie listed in "Free Stuff" on this site that asked you to watch a short demo regarding their (AMEX) business. I think several OLSers also rec'd this card. I would not do any popups or spam in my email that promised a free gift card.


Good luck to you & keep trying!!
