  1. Great contest! On May 17 I supposedly won one of the prizes and I am still fighting to try to get even the affidavit that was supposed to be mailed within the following 14 days. Seems nobody knows nothing and couldn’t care less.

  2. That’s such a bummer. I can try and send a message to the Windows Live Mail team on your behalf. Drop me a line if you want me to.

  8. Hi All

    I’ve sent two e-mails to two different members of the product team. Neither of them have replied. I’m real sorry about this, but I’m still trying to get you some information.

  9. Hi All

    I just received an e-mail from a program manager on the Windows Live Mail team. He’s forwarded all your concerns to the person in charge of the sweepstakes.

  10. Hello Again

    Looks like today is the lucky day for all Windows Live Mail Sweepstake winners. I just heard from a person by the name of Nicole who is a Global Loyalty Marketing Manager for Microsoft.

    Apparently, there was a delay in the prize delivery and unfortunately the prize winners weren’t notified on time. Everyone at Microsoft is feeling terrible about this especially since it left people feeling like they were used for some scam. However, anyone who won should have received a message on July 27th, and rest assured that they’re very sorry for this delay. In fact, as Nicole says in her e-mail to me, “In order to make sure this doesn’t happen again, for our next promotion, we’re going to include a specific turnaround time in the prize fulfillment contract since it’s caused so much pain for the customers”.

    You matter to Microsoft and they’re not going to mess up again.

  11. Hi All,
    I won 4 x $40 gift certificates to AMC. That was in early May. I did not get a penny. Last week I got e-mail. 27 July I received a mail stating
    “Your Instant Win Prize is: Four $10 AMC Movies Gift Certificates
    Approximate Retail Value: $40.00”
    I saved the first mail that says that I won “Four $40.00 AMC Movie Gift Certificates”. This first thing.
    Second thing is: If I won Four $10 AMC Movies Gift Certificates, why is the retail value “APPROXIMATE”???????
    I’ll leave it without comment.

  12. Hello All,

    Just wondering if anyone has recieved their prize from this sweepstakes. The email we recieved on July 27 stated “Your prize will be delivered within 45 days to the mailing address and/or email address provided at the time of entry.” Well the 45 days will expire on Sunday, Sept 10. I have emailed [email protected] on Tuesday Sept 5 and so far have not recieved a reply. Needless to say with the time extension and not recieving the prize I am concerned.

    Thanks,
