    I just won an IPOD Touch.
    First win of 2010!

  3. I won IPOD touch on 1/22/2010. Thanks so much for posting.

  4. I just won a $50 visa card!!! Yay!! Best of luck to everyone!

  5. $50 gift card at 3:45AM central time zone.;)

  6. I won a $50 card on 1/4. Haven’t gotten it. Just wondering has anyone received their prize yet?

  7. I won on 1/27 and received my gift card on Saturday (2/27).

  8. I also never received my $50 gift card. I won on January 7th. I wonder if there is anyone to call?

    • This is located in the rules of the game…

      Instant Win Game Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Promotion.

  9. I just found an 800 number. I will call later. Here it is 800-325-6000.

  10. I called Western Union and the person I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about when I brought up the contest. I hope everyone that won gets their prizes.

  11. I just received my Visa Gift card in the mail today from this promotion. had to sign for it. You should be receiving it this week hopefully.

  12. I really hope I receive my IPod soon. I’m glad they are sending out the prizes.

  13. I got my card in the mail today, but it was for $25 not $50! πŸ™

  14. I too received my card in the mail today. I too had to sign for it. They are coming now.

  15. Anyone else only get $25? I tried to called but everyone I talked to was clueless about the sweepstakes.

      Yes, it appears that it is happening to others as well. Try writing to the person on the letter and explaining. If they get enough emails from people having the same problem they will be able to deal with everyone as once.

      • Part of the problem is that there was no name, phone number, or address included with my Visa Card. There is no prize administrator either that I could find. However, it looks like others have been able to make contact, so I’ll try the email they used.

        Thanks!

    • I also only recieved $25.00 gift card. I called the number in the official rules and got bounced around to 4 or 5 different people. One of the people I talked to said that they only offered a $25.00 prize in the contest. I said that I had a text message showing different and he explained that they do not accept and cannot accept that as proof of any win for the game. After I was on the phone for 55 minutes I gave up and hung up, they were going to transfer me again and I said screw that.

      This is kind of SHADY and I am not going to waste my time and energy as well as my day worrying about the other $25.00, they obviously are ok with the SHADY business approach, I say screw them…

    Hello Everybody:

    I e-mailed the customer service department and received the following message:

    “Thanks for the email. We have just discovered, as you are aware, that the gift cards that were provided to us were, in fact, loaded with $25 instead of the $50. We have informed Western Union about the problem and we are in the process of getting additional $25 cards. This additional card will be sent out to you within the next 7-14 days. Sorry for any inconvenience.”

    So turn those frown upside down!

  18. Turns out I didn’t win an IPod touch. I got a list of winners and there was a phone number at the bottom so I called and asked why my name wasn’t on the list of winners and was told it happened to a lot of people. I told the woman that I filled out all my info but she said there was nothing she could do about it. This really makes me mad as heck.
    I’m sorry for everyone who got $25.00 instead of $50.00. Makes me not want to enter any more contests.
    If anyone wants the list you can email me at chrismary@comcast.net.

    Hello again everybody,

    In addition to the e-mail response, I just received a confirmation text stating my second $25 Visa Gift Card will arrive shorty.

    Here’s the e-mail address I used: WinnersList@emipromo.com

    Hope this helps πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Luckymeyay! I emailed them and hope to hear back soon. (I gave up calling because after being transferred multiple times, no one had a clue what I was talking about.)

    • I got a response that they will be sending out the other $25 cards within 7 to 14 days! I am guessing they will send them to everyone, but I wanted to email personally just in case they are only sending them out to those who complain. πŸ™‚

      Thanks again for the info!

  20. Yesterday, Monday, March 8th I received a 25.00 gc from this sweep that I won through text on Jan. 7th. I called this number – 1-800-325-6000 and spoke to two different people and finally the third person I talked to recorded all of my info and told me she would get back to me in 24 hours. Her name is Ian, she is operator 903 and you can reach her by the above number. Today, I received an email from an Amy Rectenwal stating I would receive another 25.00gc within 7-15 days. She apoligized for the incovenience. This is her email address and phone humber. Hope it helps. Amy Rectenwal Exposure Marketing and Promotions, Inc. 1000 N. Opdyke Rd., Ste. J, Auburn Hills, MI 48326 office 248.276.1270 (ext. 10) efax 775.307.6099 cell 248.705.0436 amy@emipromo.com http://www.emipromo.com LindaH

  21. I got both of my $25 gift cards about a week apart. They’re on there way, just hang in there!
