I am wondering what the procedure is if I win. Will they contact me by email? Will they send me gas cards in the mail? How long does it take to get them? I don't have a phone and only check in here about twice a week. I thought I'd ask in this category where it says to ask questions and maybe someone will know.

Don't worry about it. You'll probably never need to as you, more than likely, will never win. Worry about other really important stuff: The price of tea in China. Who is going to eat a piece of chocolate today or what color is your underwear, did you play golf, shovel, snow, want to feed an autistic child for free--things that really matter.

What line? I don't have a red, green or other line across the top except the blue menu bar.

That Red line across the top of the screen when gas prices go up, turns green & tells you, you won. The site will contact you and ask you to pick what station you want the gas cards from. I think I had a choice of five of them in my area. It probably took 3 to 4 weeks from the day I was notified I won to get them in the mail.

I'm back today and have read the contest rules. Thanks, it answers part of my questions. I guess I was hoping to hear from someone who won and there aren't any here to answer.

I didn't think what campkohler said was anything but his sense of humor. He seems like a jolly sort so I will make him a beneficiary.

I haven't bought any chances yet either, but I am curious as to the procedure for notifying and paying off winners. They have my email, but I never get any from anyone.

Good day and thanks again.

Actually, unless they updated it in the last week or so, it probably won't answer all the questions.

I have been asking for some time now with no response from the PTB...
It used to take them sometimes weeks to post the weekly winner, yet they post the daily almost instantaneously, so something has changed in the process. Also, our neighbors to the north are supposedly required to take a "skills" test for such contests, so I don't know how 1) they can post the winner so fast now where they couldn't before, or how they decide which card to give to the winner....

That said, winning is sort of like playing the lottery...the odds are against you...

JKazakus:

Simply open the link that GoGoGoodyear provided below. The link should be self-explanatory. If, after reading the information, you still have questions, please feel free to ask your questions in this thread.

In any case, it would be appreciated if you let us know if the information provided by GoGoGoodyear was helpful or useful.

As or the below post by CampKohler, simply take his post as being humorous and don't try to read anything into the real meaning other than humor.

Click Edit Member Info at the bottom of the page and make sure your info is complete so you can get your prize. Then click My Last Will & Testament and make sure all prizes go to me should you meet an unfortunate accident, and don't forget to check the My Estate Will Pay All Taxes box. That's all there is to it.

I believe you will find the answers to most of your questions in the Contest Rules and Regulations.

As to "anyone here ever won" if "here" means the few regulars on this forum I think the answer is No, but I'm not certain.
