Have you ever won from a store receipt survey?
I am nutty about doing the store surveys, Rite Aid, Dollar General etc., but wonder, are they just harvesting our information and never awarding the prize?
Has anyone here ever won a prize from one of these store surveys?

I enter those too! Never have won or personally known anyone who has won.
But I will say that sometimes there are perks for the employees that are given positive response for their service.
My son gets free meal cards for surveys that were positive regarding his service. He works at Arby's. Now, for a broke college kid, free food is a wonderful perk. He averages about 3 cards a week.
So, it doesn't hurt to fill out them if you get good service and it doesn't hurt to fill them out if you've gotten bad service ...an entry is an entry after all.
I do think companies use the info we provide in a number of ways.

I have won twice a second prize $50 from Darden restaurant Group by entering snail mail.
No biggies yet, still trying by snail mail.

Yes--at least 6 times over the years. The prizes were $500 store gift cards, but I have also won 3-4 $100 store gift cards as well. And that's why I ALWAYS fill out surveys on my receipts.

I once won a football themed prize pack from Buffalo Wild Wings and more recently I won a meal from Chick-fil-a
