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.

I still find it curious that it used to take sometimes weeks to identify a winner and now they identify them immediately. I wonder how they improved that success rate...

To follow what others have said, this two year Gas Buddy member earned 100 points for joining Gas Buddy in 2011, and (having no forum posts), posted 20 gas prices posts, read 120 news articles, took part in 30 weekly polls, or some combination of the above during that time, earning three chances to enter the daily drawing.

"I would think someone that has been a member for more than 3 years would have more than 3,100 points."

So would most of us, but there are countless members that used to be called "120 pointers), and several were winners because of the previous granting of a free ticket to the drawing if you had less than 1,000 points left to enter the drawing.

"Anyone have similar thoughts? I am starting to wonder if they really do give $100 a day away or they just do it once a month or so by giving it to people that don't exist anymore."

Me and another long time member took part in recent discussions about prizes/winning/etc., so yes, speaking from experience (having entered random number of tickets regularly/periodically over the years),

I don't uestion the legitimacy of the drawing but rather wonder what the odds are of (for example) a six month, one year, three year member with (say) under 5,000 or 10,000 points, just happening to enter the drawing after such a long time and having his/her entry drawn. Yes, I know it's a random drawing and that anyone can win, just as a first time lottery ticket buyer, buying one ticket, can win the Powerball or Megabillions lottery. it just seems that odds are regularly overcome.

Yes, I recognize that a hundreds or thousands of people join Gas Buddy daily, and that many of them earn a ticket their first day or two, with five gas price posts, and then enter the drawing. But one would hope that, as this site was built on the reliability of regular price posting, the daily prize winner (the former weekly prize winner) would have made at least something more in the way of contribution to the web site than having earned points for several dozen news articles or a dozen gas price posts over a coupld dozen months. It's not the same as their having bought a ticket to enter the Powerball drawing.

Of course it's entirely possible that a member who hasn't participated very much, or who hasn't participated in a year uses his/her one or two tickets to enter the drawing a year after their last points participation, can win the daily drawing. Just as it's possible that long time members with a considerable number of points doesn't enter the drawing at all. It's just that low point winners (especially low point brand new member winners) seems to negate any reason for many to continue to make a lot of contribution to the website.

Back to "Does anyone else find something strange about the winner of the $100 gas card for Nov.6 2014? "

Strange? No. Out of the ordinary? No, because there've been so many under 10,000 point as well as first day winners. Random? Yes (the odds of someone taking part in these discussions having won show a degree of randomness). Legitimate? I have no doubt but maybe I'm not partial (and in no way believe any winner was given a prize to stop his/her posting about winners). I fully believe the drawing is entirely above board and legitimate,. Mystifying or odds-defying? That's different, and I'd say "certainly, in my opinioni".Maybe, as someone has suggested elsewhere, maybe there's an anomoly in the awarding of a free daily entry ticket that still occurs under certain conditions and that's what skewing the drawing results. But how that might happen is beyond anything that I can understand without drawing more information than the organization that conducts the drawing would or should provide; I'd take how the drawing is conducted, other than saying it's random, to be proprietary information. After all, it's not as if we're paying to enter the drawing it it might be subjet to more stringent "transparency" concerns.

Several members are writing on the winner's white boards to no avail. Send out a buddy request to some of them and see what happens.

Also, there is no requirement to spend the points as you earn them. He might have just gotten the APP and decided to enter.

Does anyone else find something strange about the winner of the $100 gas card for Nov.6 2014? The winner "wolfwalker68" has been a member since Oct. 19 2011 and has only 3,100 points. Now it struck me that a great part of his 3,100 points came from when he signed up for GasBuddy.(1,000 for signing up and 1,000 for reporting gas the next 2 days) I would think someone that has been a member for more than 3 years would have more than 3,100 points. If he got his points early on just how did he get points to enter the drawing on Nov.6 2014? I have seen anomalies like this with winners of the $100 gas card for a long time but this one really hit me as strange. Anyone have similar thoughts? I am starting to wonder if they really do give $100 a day away or they just do it once a month or so by giving it to people that don't exist anymore.

"I don't believe anyone here is suggesting that it is intentionally rigged."

Strange, I thought that this was the inference that some here have been making all along? Not that I agree at all, but the accusation of impropriety has been implied on numerous occasions without really coming out and just saying so.

This situation is probably understandable given the relatively high number of new member winners, some of whom apparently don't continue to participate after cashing in, but there are other factors at work here as well.

CC's explanation below describes in some detail how it is possible for new members to be among the highest percentage of winners; ostensibly because there are a higher percentage drawn from more densely populated regions. His repeated use of the term "random drawing" is textbook salesmanship (applause) and even though this explanation seems logical; the naysayers are not likely to be so easily convinced with the dart board analogy.

It is an inherent distrust of so-called random drawings, fueled by other issues including the hard fact that GB management has essentially ignored inaccurate price reporting problems for years now. The strange web site inconsistencies and, perhaps more importantly, how the GasBuddy web site is generally managed and maintained using a series of game carrots and incentives to promote member participation just fans the flames of discontent. This is where much of the skepticism is cultivated.

Nope, this discussion isn't over by a long shot. There will still be many members who don't think the newbie winners are even real people and that the 1969 moon landing was filmed in Hollywood.

The other thing was (maybe someone still has the name and a shot of her whiteboard) that one winner indicated on her WB in response to congrats and questions about how many entries said she never entered.

Again, I don't think anyone is claiming intentional "rigging" of the contest...but are commenting on things they have noticed.

CC - I don't believe anyone here is suggesting that it is intentionally rigged.

That said, it used to take a long time to post winners because you couldn't get a hold of some immediately, but now they are posted almost instantaneously...including Canadians that must pass a "skills" test. And, some have the brand card listed almost as soon, and others much later.

Hi folks,

I know some of this has already come up, but hoping this can help.

Click here for full contest details in Canada.
Click here for full contest details in USA.

The bottom line with the draw is that it is random. Entering the draw 1000 times doesn't guarantee that one of your entries will be drawn. It just gives you a better chance of having an entry drawn. Some win after years of trying. Some win on their first try. It's a random draw.

One thing that comes up a fair bit, in regards to the draw, is that there seem to be more winners in higher-populated areas than in lower-populated areas. This is probably true, to an extent.

Picture a rectangular dart board. Unlike a traditional dart board, this one starts with vertical lines of different colors. The lines represent areas with varying populations, so they vary greatly in thickness. For example, Texas and California have big, thick lines, while Wyoming and Newfoundland have tiny, thin lines. Now think of each line actually being comprised of a number of dots. Each dot represents a person in the area who entered the draw. It doesn't matter whether the person is new or not because once they've entered the draw, they've become part of the dart board.

Finally, imagine the dots breaking out of the lines they formed, and randomly changing spots on the dart board at a speed faster than the eye can clearly see. Now throw a dart that can only hit only one dot.

Is there a higher chance you're going to hit a dot from Texas than Newfoundland? Yes. Does that guarantee that you're going to hit a dot from Texas and will never hit Newfoundland? No. It's a random draw.

In contrast, "rigging" the draw would be something like making a conscious decision that a long-time member who has entered the draw many times should win because they've been trying for longer. If we were going to do this, we probably wouldn't have wasted time building a real draw. We would just hand-pick our favorites and not even offer a draw. Since this doesn't make any sense at all, we'll stick with the actual draw.

It's a random draw, folks. Entering the draw doesn't mean you'll definitely win, but NOT entering the draw means you will definitely NOT win.

Good luck!

Original post:
"There is a difference between "worrying" about it and commenting on a pattern that one sees."

Response:
"The reason some question the newbies winning because they are playing is the number winning on the day they join, or with 0 consecutive days and the fact that one winner with low points indicated she had not entered."

And commenting because there are seemingly so many winners that have, say, under 10,000 points after being a member from anywhere from tree months to three years or more. The random chance that one person would be selected in a drawing and overcoming the odds of winning (whatever they are) is one thing; it's another thing entirely when there are, say one third of a month's winners coming from that group. The drawing results simply defy the odds of what would seem to be common sense. Do you really think that a three year member with, say, 6,000 points, never entered the drawing previously, and just happened to "dump" his/her points into the daily drawing after three years and won? Yes, I know it can happen, and I know it could happen multiple times. But considering how many "multiple times" it's happened, it's something that might be commented on.

As TxJeans correctly noted, it's not worrying that's being posted here as much as it's commenting on a pattern that one sees. That seems reasonable to do. At least it does to me.

Also, they seem to often have 0 consecutive days...and worse, remain at 0-1 consecutive days. Many never even increase their points after winning.

Apparently nowdays you need to be NEW to Gas Buddy to win. Look at the recent winner's point totals (1000, 4000, 6000, 9000) all within the past 2 weeks. I would guess something is a little fishy will the drawing. What are the odds of that happening so many times in such a short time frame? Create a new user ID, login, report 1 day's worth of prices (1000) points and win gas money. Maybe I'll try that process every day.

Having also been a recent gas card winner, the process (and it's explained in several other threads by both blupupher and me) for me was the drawing was the held approximately midnight (Eastern time), Tuesday September 22, and approximately noon the following day (Wednesday, September 23) I received an e-mail from Gas Buddy informing me that I had been selected as a winner, and I was asked to confirm my home address (my address of record is a Post Office Box, which I've been using for years), and requesting that I send Gas Buddy a photo of me with the gas cards.

In my case, when I logged on to Gas Buddy's website, I noticed I had a large number of notifications including from several members that take part in these discussions, informing me I had won. I received their notifications before the e-mail was received but it seems the e-mail is sent (more or less) early in the morning after the drawing.

In my case, because I'm travelling, I informed Gas Buddy that I would send a photo after I returned from my travels. And, because the notification e-mail didn't ask what gas cards I preferred, I told Gas Buddy which cards I preferred.

I was told yesterday (the first day after the weekend) that FedEx had just delivered the gas cards (the package with the gas cards must be signed for).

Does that answer your questions?

"mwhals, I was taking it literally as "every day." Sorry."

Until they removed it, there actually was a way to get a ticket every day, in addition to the tickets you could get by redeeming points. I never took advantage of it, but I know there were those that did (and got upset when it was removed). That was around the time they upped the points awarded for each price to 200, so mwhals could have been entering literally every day for the 8+ years of membership, had he been taking advantage of that quirk.

CelticHeart,

975*7 + 100 (Sunday vote) = 6925

That is enough to enter six days a week for three weeks and seven days a week for the fourth week. When looking at almost 3000 consecutive days of posting, that is pretty close to every day for several years as it is 25 out of 28 days each four weeks.

I think you missed my point of not winning while entering as many times as possible over several years.

Tx, nope, was never asked what card I wanted. Just got 4 $25 Exxon cards via Fed Ex 2 days after I won. No idea how they pick what card you get. I post equally between Shell, Exxon and Valero.
Not going to complain either way. I would have picked Chevron if I had a choice (the Chevron closest to me is about $0.07/gallon cheaper than the Exxon by me) but free gas is free gas.

Did you have to respond to them or did they just send the cards.

I hope they don't send based on the station you post to most frequently, as that would be non-competitive for me...but I won't worry about that since I won't likely ever win.

I just won recently. You will get an e-mail from gasbuddy.com saying your a winner and as said below you will have a green banner pop up saying your a winner (both on the web page and on the phone app).
My name was posted before I even new I won, and I did not get to choose a brand for my gas card, they just sent me Exxon/Mobil, which luckily is a station near me with competitive prices.
I won on 9/16 and had my cards on 9/18.

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.
