Has anyone here ever won a store receipt survey sweepstakes?
Hi everyone,

I'm just curious...has anyone here ever won one of those store or restaurant survey sweepstakes? You know the kind that appear on your register receipt--I've seen them on Target, WalMart, Ulta, Home Depot, Panera Bread, CVS, and Rite Aid receipts. You enter a code and password and then they usually ask you about customer service at the store/product availability/checkout time, etc. I ALWAYS take the time to do these because the prize is usually pretty good--anywhere from $500 to $10,000. I just wonder if I'm wasting my time though....so if anyone here has ever won one of these, I'd love to know

Lolita

Very difficult to win these. I asked this question on another forum & only one of the people who replied at known someone who won. Her mom had won $100 GC.

Lots of people enter these.. lots & sometimes the period is very long.

LolitaH, you read my mind!!! I was wondering the same thing yesterday while looking at a receipt, and thought about posting this very question here in the forum!

I don't personally know of anyone who won...I wonder if anyone ever really does?

I rarely complete surveys online from receipts (too hard to keep track of), but i do mail in my entries for these surveys (easy to track, so you're not dq'd if there is a limit). I won a $10,000 gc with this method as well as some smaller amounts.

I won the Best Buy $5,000 gift card from the receipt survey. Local manager was tickled to meet someone who actually won ... clerks were tickled too (they expressed that they had wondered if anyone actually won from them). Best win I have had! So, yes, I do all the receipt surveys I can get ahold of!

I won the Best Buy store receipt thing back in 2004 when it was worth $500. I had also mailed in a few entries but they called the number I phoned in via the survey. Too bad they went with fewer but happier winners since.

Food Lion sent me a $25 gift card a while back, so I think that was the same idea but over the Internet...

Wow - glad you asked - I have always wondered.... I fill these type of contests out all the time -they usually don't take that long and I prefer ones I can do online - I hate the phone call in ones. Haven't won but will keep trying considering some of the Big and smaller prizes posted here.
