Good morning! I have always wondered, when you get a winning notice via email, is it easy to spot? I'm always afraid I'm going to accidenally delete a winning email through all the spam because its not obvious. 


 


Those of you that have won some of those awesome prizes, what was the email like? Did it have an obvious subject line?


 


Thanks so much!! Looking forward to that first big win!! :)

Hi! Some of the winning emails I've received have said in the subject "Big News From.....". Other times it read Congratulations. Focus also on who it is from. I've received emails from specific names so that's a clue as well. Always check your spam. I've found winning emails there too. Hope this helps. Good luck to you in many future wins! Keep plugging away. Happy sweeping!

i won the grand prize from IGA family and friends and it came in my spam and i almost didnt open it..


it only showed IGA in subject line and no clue it was a winning email.


it was a check for $2000.

Thank you all! They should always make it in big bold letters **YOU WON THE PRIZE!!!**, but thats wishful thinking. :)


 


This helps a bunch, happy sweeping all! Good luck!!

My experiences have been similar from above.  I found a $250 win from Sav-A-Lot in my spam folder so make sure you scan in that folder too.

One of the bigger prizes I won - I think a PS3 plus all the movies from a particular movie company....Said something like thank you for entering and was in my spam. This is the subject of E-mails I get when I enter  - at some point after I've entered - right away or within hours - very often I get thanked. So I wasn't expecting an E-mail informing me of a win but looked anyway.
