Another year of entering every day of 5 months and then the deadline comes and goes and zippo information. Do people win these things??

Same deal for the Fatherís Day prize a day. Weíre deep into the 34 days and no winners shown.

Why do we bother??

Iím grateful for giveaways but Iím tired of entering stuff, getting bombarded by junk email and not knowing who, if anyone, won.

My sentiments exactly, that is why my information stopped being entered last year. You would think they could at least let a person fill it out once instead of each time you went to the page. My 'autofill' doesn't even work with their page.

The autofill isn't supposed to work. They want to make it difficult for people to enter more than once. They want your info, but anything more than once is just noise to them. These things work about as good as 'rebates' work. I swear then are nothing but scams.

I gave up too after entering into their draws a couple of times sensing that my chance to win was too slim.

However, if by scam you meant no real winners existed, I wouldn't agree to that. The reason is simple: a scam would be easily exposed by any departing employee who was involved with the scam. All the prizes are probably contributed by the vendors or bought at special prices. The risk is simply too high for PW.

I have a yahoo email account that I use for craiglist, ebay, etc. which all junk and scam emails also go into. There I don't have to enter into any contests and still "won" some estate left behind by a Mr Rich for me to claim. The trouble was I was too poor to send them any money first to earn my share.

They aren't scams, well, most of them aren't. Certainly not the ones by an established company hosted/linked from their own site. You're right about the multiple entry challenge though...
