Well, It is a freebie, but I wonder what the "average" odds are of winning. NO one close tome has been so lucky.

You need to give people who have signed up for this app the email address that will be informing the winner that they have won so they can enter it into their contacts. It is really unfair that that some of your emails to the winners go into their junk folder and they have no way of knowing that they have won. You already have their home address and that should be enough to just send out the prize. I have been a member for almost 4 years. I did however get the email saying that I had forfeited my prize because I didn't respond within five days.

I won. I was given a tracking number that showed my package going to Illinois. I live in Ohio.

Hope it's just the wrong tracking # since the day before the winner was from IL.

If i win I'll be so surprised. I have entered too many sweepstakes and never win. Maybe I'm just not lucky at that stuff out most of the time the winners are fake. Most winners have no picture at all.

I have just created a GasBuddy account and entered the drawing for today, *fingers crossed*.

Anyway, it's a good motivational technique to insure that prices are updated on a timely basis, which is the primary function of GasBuddy.

Hi, I have been a Gas Buddy member for nearly 2 years and have not won yet. I have tried different methods like keeping my points until the end of the week or 2 weeks to even have a better chance but no success. I like Gas Buddy but it is frustrating to keep posting prices and no success at winning even after the changes at beginning of the year. How many entries do the winners enter in order to win? Please send me a message if there is something that will help. I also have not seen very many Wisconsin members winning either mostly big states win. I do have my correct email address and mailing address entered. Thanks

Please respond:

I see in the "Recent Winners" forum that *dianaymundo* won without entering. ??? She says that she didn't buy any tickets, yet must have won because she's been more active reporting prices recently. Is this possible?

"more chances to win"? roflmao. Everyone gets the same, so how does that increase anyone's chances? To simplify this; if 2 people each got 1 entry, they each have a 50/50 chance, so now give those same 2 people 10 entries each, which one has a better chance?

Am I missing something, but if you use the same number of points to have the chance at a lesser prize, are you really better off?

PD said nothing about the "1 Free Entry" going from once a week to once a day starting January 1st! So, there are even more chances to win even if you never read a news story, post a message, or post any gas prices. But that wouldn't be any fun, would it?

If you would have gone in and bought some tickets, you would have noted a new banner during most of the month of December 2013 announcing the change.
