Sweepstakes Frequently Asked Questions
How is the winner chosen?
A random winner is chosen automatically from among all the entries for a particular week by our website survey system.
How is the winner notified?
The winner is notified by email.
How does the winner claim the prize?
After the winner has provided their mailing address, the prize is shipped using the United States Postal Service via “signature required” delivery.
Why does it sometimes take weeks to post a winner?
Occasionally we do not receive a response from the selected winner – sometimes this is due to their computer filtering our notification email as “SPAM” or the winner does not check their email frequently. After a couple of weeks, if we have not heard from them, we select another winner randomly.
Why am I never chosen? I've been entering the sweepstakes for years.
Each week there are thousands of entries – often tens of thousands. As you can imagine, the odds of winning are somewhat small.
Why does your prize rarely change?
The Ryobi 18V Lithium Combo Kit that we feature in our sweepstakes most often, is one of the most popular prizes we have ever featured so we are happy to offer this great prize to our readers on a regular basis.
