I noticed that @KMart has suspended this game. Unfortunately it seems that some entrants were cheating and not playing fairly. I hope it no one on this site because I hope I have taught everyone to always read the rules and not be greedy about this hobby by trying to enter and win more than is allowed.

If you enter a sweepstakes or instant win game you should be using one email address for yourself. You should never try to enter for yourself using multiple email addresses. I saw that happen here once where a person entered my own personal giveaway using 78 email addresses. I quickly disqualifed them. It is not fair for anyone.

Sweepstakes are setup by companies to promote something like a product, a sale, an event, etc. and winning, for us, is a by-product of that sweepstakes. We should always be respectful of the company running the sweepstakes and follow their rules at all times.

Here is the KMart message on their site:

  1. Its sad that they ended the game, I didn’t win anything:(

  2. Lyra Schroeder says:

    So sad! πŸ™ I did win about two weeks ago, and just used my gift code today!

  3. elizabeth says:

    this is sad that people are so pathetic and low down that they cheat for $20. i never won and i guess i know why now. but congrats to the people that played legit. because of cheaters, that is why more contests have those annoying codes and words that we have to type in now.

  4. I am thinking in how i am going to pay my debdts.

  5. HowardStern says:

    KMART is an awful company! A few people ruin it for us all? Theyre Sorry?
    No…Im sorry. Sorry I will never shop at Kmart again. Theyre prices are insane now anyway. They should have set up a secure contest in the first place! F Kmart!!!

    • There is a difference in setting up a secure site and people cheating. What is someone enters using 78 email addresses and doesn’t follow the rules? What does a secure site have to do with that? A small amount of people always ruin things for the large community. This is why we have so many laws because people can’t govern themselves and do what is right!

      • HowardStern says:

        If I created contests for a big corporation like Kmart, I would expect cheaters, and secure the contest from them. Surely they can protect themselves. To make everyone suffer is horrible buisness! They should only blame themselves for being negligent when creating this contest.
        Whoever cheated must have really upset the big wigs at kmart, and got a huge payday. Dont be mad at that person like kmart wants you to. I commend them!

        • I totally understand but some of these cheaters are super smart and they create bots to bypass the Captcha codes. Just today I found one of these cheater sites where they talk about doing it. I don’t want to link to them but if you email me I will show you.

          • HowardStern says:

            I definitley believe you Sweetie. Im often tempted to enter a few sweeps more than 1x, but fear if I actually win, Ill never recieve my prize. Im sure a lot of big corporations have theyre contests protected hardcore. Youd think Kmart would be smarter? Theyre response to the players of this sweepstake was just uncalled for.
            Kmarts promotions manager should be fired!
            Btw Sweetie…your quite the hottie! Not what I expected, to say the least. I love your site and Ive won a lot of free crap so far.
            I recently had to hunt down my $100 office depot card because they never sent it. Took 3 calls to corporate..I wasnt giving up that easy. Got it today…sold it today!

          • You’re too funny πŸ™‚ I passed hottie a loooong time ago. I think KMart handled this promotion really badly. They aren’t even honoring the prizes that were legitimately won. Oh well, as they say, on to the next one. We could definitely fight it but what can you do.

  6. That is a shame. Never got the chance to play. Why would someone cheat in order to get $20 gift code from Kmart. Does not make any sense. Contrats to those who won without cheating.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    I won and received the email that they would send the eGift card within 48 hours, then the same day, they suspended the game. I never got the $20.00 gift card. It just sucks, I was so excited to have some extra school shopping money!

  8. mindbuilder says:

    The thing about greedy people is that, honestly, they don’t give a care who they affect! Unfortunately, we all have to deal with the after effects of their behavior! Personally, this is why I like the one-time only entries the best, because it evens the playing field.

  9. Rhonda Martin says:

    What a shame some had to cheat and ruin it for every one else. Like the saying goes it only takes one bad apple to ruin a whole bushel and obviously it happens in the fun world of sweeping too. What gets me is it was only for a $20 GC , did they really have to cheat!?! Congrats to those who won and won fairly πŸ™‚

  10. Oh wow. People are crazy. Don’t they know that cheaters never win. I know I played, I followed the rules, and I won. I am so grateful. It’s terrible because it only takes one person to ruin it for everyone else.

  11. HowardStern says:

    putting the blame on 3rd parties? Kmart, your a big boy, take responsibility for your lack of creating a secure contest and try not to blame your loyal customers. Your like a bad teacher who makes the rest of the class suffer due to the misbehavior of 1 kid.
