Marisa’s Frequently Asked Questions
As the spokesperson for Reader’s Digest Sweepstakes, you can imagine that I have been asked many questions over the years. So, I decided to share the most popular ones below. Have a look:
|WHY DOES READER’S DIGEST HAVE SWEEPSTAKES?
The fact is, when Reader’s Digest started the Sweepstakes, it was to set us apart from everyone else. It made us unique. We realized they were fun and people got excited about the possibility of winning prizes. And of course, it’s an ideal way to showcase our products and encourage consumers to get to know more about Reader’s Digest.
|CAN YOU ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES WITHOUT ORDERING A PRODUCT?
Of course. Your chances of winning are equal whether you purchase a product or not. All our promotions make it clear that our Sweepstakes are free to enter and you are always given identical options whether you answer YES (order and entry) or NO (entry only).
|CAN I ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES MORE THAN ONCE?
By all means! Each entry you receive guarantees you another chance to win. In fact, some entries include additional prize numbers…and more numbers means more opportunities to win.
|HOW CAN I TELL THE READER’S DIGEST SWEEPSTAKES IS FOR REAL?
To begin, unlike others, who try to deceive, we NEVER ask for money to enter our Sweepstakes or to win or receive any prize. Furthermore, our Sweepstakes is a wholly Canadian Sweepstakes. Contrary to fraudulent practices, you will never see our prizes drawn on a US bank, a foreign bank, involve a foreign institution, or a foreign department for that matter
|WILL YOU CALL ME SHOULD I WIN A PRIZE?
No, absolutely not. For security reasons, I would not call you. Sweepstakes which are fraudulent usually involve one or more telephone calls.It is important that you stay vigilant about the possibility of being scammed. No one from Reader’s Digest would ever ask that you send any amount of money to claim a prize. You should never have to send money to win money!The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is a government agency that monitors and identifies marketing fraud across Canada. Should anyone contact you that raises your suspicions, contact the CAFC at 1-888-495-8501 right away.
|WILL I REALLY RECEIVE MY PRIZE?
Yes, we make sure of it ! Whenever we launch a Sweepstakes or contest with a prize value over $5,000, a Toronto-Dominion Bank representative sends a Letter of Guarantee to the regulatory body which oversees our Sweepstakes and contest activities. This Letter ensures that funds will always be available to pay out all the prizes that are publicized and hence ensures that all winners will actually receive their prize monies.
|WHO REGULATES THE SWEEPSTAKES?
We register the rules with a government authority and ensure complete compliance with all Canadian regulatory requirements. We really do go by the book. All the information is readily available to you in our rules. Look for them on any package you receive from us or go online. All the links you need are below
|HOW WILL I KNOW IF I QUALIFIED TO WIN A SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE?
If you win the Grand Prize I’ll send you official notification by Priority Courier through Canada Post. Win any of the other prizes and your notification would arrive by First Class Mail. Then, when you correctly answer the enclosed skill-testing question, and complete and return your signed Claim Form by the deadline date, you’ll be a confirmed winner. You can expect to receive your prize soon after.
|DOES READER’S DIGEST REALLY GIVE AWAY ALL THEIR PRIZES?
Most definitely! If anyone fails to claim their prize within the specified time following notification, our standing policy is to donate it to a recognized Canadian charity
