    Re: What Do You Think??

    Many times I've read posts where the winner took the time to contact the sponsor to determine if they *had* to do an affy when they won a lower tier prize - most of the time, the answer was yes.

    But, unless you ask, you don't know if they only had one type of form and only those who won prizes worth $600 or more really needed to get the form notarized.

    I guess the people doing the fulfillment just assume? :scratch:

    btw - by law, even those $1.00 wins are supposed to be reported on your taxes, so maybe the sponsor requires the affy as a paper trail to offset their taxes somehow? :scratch:

    I received the same letter for a $14 napkin holder. The bank will notarize it for free, so I may do it just so I can see what napkin holder is.

    See, I'd do a BLINGO and/or Swagbucks search to try to win something and discover what it could look like at the same time :crazytongue:

    That's really asking a lot for such a small prize. What's the name of that contest...so I won't enter?

    :wave: After years of doing the instant win sweeps for the travel channel trips, I won a set of 2 tumblers (glass) worth $6. I was suprised to get an affy for it. I didn't bother to claim it. Glad to hear other people feel the same way.
