A lot of stores such as Walgreens now offer monthly draws for prizes of $1,000 to $3,000 dollars for filling out a customer satisfaction survey.   Do you spread out your purchases between multiple trips in order to increase the number of chances that you have in such draws?   Seems like playing a lottery for free and even the slimmest chance divided by zero cost is a good investment.

    Are you talking about the ones printed on receipts and such? Personally I don't trust them because it could just be a telemarketing scam. I would rather pay my dollar for a legit chance at a real prize.

      I tried it once and took a forty minute on line survey only to find 15 more companies wanting me to do a survey. at no point was i told your in the drawing for the walgreens 3000 . never even asked for the serial number on the receipt. i really regret giving purchasing info , and in case anyone is wondering i prefer colgate over crest anyday. be careful.

        sully, sully, sully, move to Tennessee and you won't need toothpaste. Your teeth fall out as soon as you get here and you can save money on all that hygiene stuff. You don't need teeth for beans and cornbread anyway. Then you can spend all that toothpaste money on Tennessee sippin' whiskey and lottery tickets. On top of that, you can learn how to juggle snakes and clog dance. Betcha Michigan ain't got that!

            These sweepstakes are for real but the problem with online sweepstakes is they do take advantage and try to get alot of information about you. If you read thru the official rules many times there is an alternate means of entry such as writing your name address phone number and sometimes age on a 3/5 paper or sometimes unlined index card and mailing it in an envelope.

            The ones to watch out for(whether online or something you receive in the mail) are the ones that say you won something but you need to send x-number of dollars for shipping. Also if you didn't enter how could you possibly have won something?  Believe me if you win something the delivery costs will be paid. If you win a car YOU ARE responsible for the tax, license and registration fees.
