  1. Got this message: Your prize claim information has been Submitted.
    Please allow 6 – 8 weeks for delivery of your prize.
    I hope I won, could really use this!
    I could never get the form to go thru in Firefox, I just tried in Chrome and it worked and gave me that message ^^
    PRAYING that there is no glitch & we won!

  2. Stephanie Grant says:

    Thanks I hope this means I’m a winner, I didn’t play a game or text in just entered my phone number and it asked for my mailing information:

    Your prize claim information has been Submitted.
    Please allow 6 – 8 weeks for delivery of your prize.

  3. I’ve been texting but never got a winning message. I entered my phone number above and got the same message as everyone else. I tried it with my mom’s number and got “Sorry, the mobile number entered is not an instant winner. Please confirm mobile number is correct.” So maybe I did win with my number?

  4. Kimberly says:

    I’ve been playing this for weeks from my iPhone. I played it from the link just now and won????


  5. Susan D. says:

    I think what is going on is that the link posted here takes you to the claim page for text winners, not the sweeps entry page. If you are entering online you should have to enter your email address, not your cell phone number. To enter online the link is

    I think anyway. I’m assuming those that got only the “your prize claim information has been submitted” will not be getting a prize, because they actually had no prize to claim. Make sense?

  6. jennifer-Lynn says:

    Ditto here too. I took a screenshot and printed out the webpage Just In Case. If you all remember correctly a Rice Krispies one time entry was doing the same thing. I got the same type of message but never got the $50 gift card….. unless the contest isn’t over yet.

  7. I just won!

  8. Cathy F says:

    I WON!!!! YEAH!!! It’s been a while!!!!

  9. Has anyone recieved this? Mine went straight to the address form and then to the page saying I’ll be receiving it in 6-8 weeks, but no e-mail confirmation from them.

  10. karyn cannon mccoy says:

    i won on this game a week or 2 ago:)

  11. I received the same message most of you have and when I looked at the rules it states: “If you win an Instant-Win Prize, you will be notified instantly either via email, online, or via text message (see Rule #5 for details on winner notification). Non-winning participants will not be contacted.” I have not been contacted, so therefore: I do not believe I have actually won.

  12. Catherine Rice says:

    Is anyone having a problem entering this sweeps?
    Everytime I go to play for the last 2 wks, the captcha code never appears?
    I have tried it on Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. No captcha code shows up. Can’t enter if I don’t enter a captcha code.
    Really weird. all the sweeps run by Hersheys are doing this .
    The Herhey’s Smores Sweeps did it , this one and the Twizzlers IWS sweeps
    too. None of them will show the captcha code.
    Any suggestions?

    • Yeah I had the same problem too. I ended up having to play them by text or on my Kindle lol

      • I won the Twizzler won by text though so it was worth it 🙂

      • Catherine Rice says:

        thanks for the reply. Glad to know I am not the only one having
        problems with Herhey’s IWS sweeps sites.

        congrats on winning via the TEXT entry.

  13. Both me and my boyfriend have been entering this every day with no luck. Maybe these last two days… *fingers crossed*

    I love any instant win/sweeps that awards Visa cards. Those things are awesome to have around.

  14. Dawn Curtean says:

    Has anyone received their gas card? I won on July 22nd via text and claimed my prize the same day and have not recieved my card, I guess it hasn’t quite been 8 weeks yet but it seemed like there were some issues with this one and I’m just curious if anyone has actually gotten a prize.

  15. sept 22nd still no prize

  16. Nothing yet for me, either. I’m tempted to put a SASE in the mail for the winner’s list.

  17. No prize yet either, still waiting

  18. Christina H says:

    My husband got his $80 gift card in the mail today!

  19. Dawn Curtean says:

    I got my card today! It was a Visa gift card (I was expecting a gas card) so happy I can use it for everything not just gas!

  20. I received my gift card the other day in the mail. Arrived in a plain white envelope – make sure to check all mail before throwing away ;)!

  21. Received my card oct 1 or 2. Won July 16.

  22. I won this game a while back and never received my prize, how do I get in touch with these people? If anyone can help, tysm.

    • I contacted them by phone immediately after winning the prize to confirm and was told I’d receive my prize within 6-8 weeks. I have yet to receive my prize as well. You can email them or contact by phone. It’s under “Contact Us” on the bottom of the HERSHEY’S website

  23. Still no gift card here
