The Watch List

The Watch List

Last week I wrote a blog post called: My Recommendation: STOP ENTERING regarding a legitimate sweepstakes website that wasn’t awarding their prizes in a timely manner, if at all.  Fellow contestors began to flood me with other sites they also felt were not honoring their obligations as a sweepstakes hosts.  I decided I should create a page called The Watch List to warn entrants letting them know about websites they should not spend their time on.

As per my blog post, the first one on the list is Today’s Draw.  I also added Penny Auctions Canada based on comments received.

I heard from others regarding Wanna Win.  I know the former President and it’s a legitimate site.  Many posted they have never won from the site and do not know anyone who has.  Wanna Win has many many members.  Just because a site has poor odds of winning, doesn’t mean it’s not legitimate.  It still has better odds than the lottery and many buy tickets every week.  I am seeking sites that treat their members poorly by not sending prizes, ignoring emails, etc.  Classic Heartland falls in the same group.  One prize and many entrants.

What I am seeking from you now is; what other sites need to be investigated and/or be added to The Watch List?

    won a dress at rickety rack… never got it, and they blocked me from posting,,, I personally havnt heard of any winners that I know,,

  2. Anna March 2, 2013 at 11:54 pm - Reply I think is a fraudulent site as I have searched online for every winner they have announced for months over multiple search engines and I don’t believe these winners exist.

    I have wondered about the following, as others have posted they are not legitimate
    I have sent emails to Prizes Canada and Sweepwise and someone did respond to me questions about them being legitimate, Sweepwise advised me to check the winners list. I have tried to google the people who have won, but have had no luck

    I have won twice on Wanna Win. One was just points and the other was some small card, which I did receive.
    I won a prize from Todays Draw, but it was a long time ago and maybe things have changed. It took a couple months to get it, which is about normal for a lot of contests, though.

    I have won a digital photo frame from Wannawin and did receive it not that long after.
    It is as you say a legitimate site.

    I won $100 on Wannawin. It was supposed to be a gift card, but they sent me a cheque instead – which suits me just fine. They are legit in my books.
