Receipt Survey Sweepstakes

Do you answer the surveys at the bottoms of receipts? I have on occasion, but this year I’m making a concerted effort to answer them every time I get one. I want to see if I can win one of the sweepstakes attached to them. I’ve always enjoyed entering sweepstakes in my spare time, and I’m just betting that the odds of winning one of these is better than your typical sweepstakes. I can’t imagine many people enter them.

Dollar Tree gives away $1,000 daily, plus $1,500 in weekly instant win prizes. Kroger gives away 100 $100 gift cards and one $5,000 gift card each month (plus they give you 50 bonus fuel points when you complete the survey). That’s quite a bit of money, and I certainly wouldn’t mind adding it to my bank account.

I started my experiment at the beginning of the month, and I’ve already had one small success. I spotted a survey sticker on a package of strawberries that we bought, and jumped online to answer the survey. When they asked how they had tasted, I reported that they hadn’t been very sweet. Then, I proceeded with the rest of the survey, and earned my sweepstakes entry. Much to my surprise I received an email of apology from the company within the hour, along with an offer to refund me for the berries. I wrote back, thanked them for their response, and told them that I had paid $1.99 for the berries. Well, I just received a letter from the company yesterday, and when I opened it, I found a hand-written card, saying they hoped I’d give them another try and a crisp $5 bill! Talk about great customer service.

I’m going to keep plugging away at those receipt surveys to see if I can win something. It doesn’t take much time, and it sure is fun to dream about the possibilities. I’ll let you know if I have any wins.

Do you enter receipt surveys? Have you ever won one of the sweepstakes? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I’m up for the challenge Erin! I’m adding this to my February list of goals. I’ll keep you updated if I win anything. I’m typically a lucky person, so who knows, maybe I’ll add a little extra to my piggy bank this way 🙂

      • I can’t tell you how many times I have tried! That’s how I found your blog, by asking the internet if these awards are for real. I do like the church’s chicken survey, you get an immediate reward of 2pieces of chicken. Kathleen

  2. I’m in too! I did a Rite Aid receipt survey last night as I was filing January receipts. It gives 14 days to complete after transaction so I was glad I still had time.

    I did recently contact Kellogg’s Rewards because I bought a product and couldn’t find the points. I got back a nice response that said that at this time that product doesn’t offer points but she added 200 points to my account as a courtesy for contacting them. I use the points to order Spanish children’s books from Scholastic to take on my trips to Nicaragua to give to the school I work with there.

    • Awesome. It looks like this is shaping up to be a good challenge. Fingers crossed that one (or more) of us has a win to report soon 🙂

  3. when buying Dunkin Donut coffee I use the receipt to answer questions it asks on their site. It entitles me to 1.00 next time I visit . Just love those extra dollars. I’m going to try your suggestion at Dollar tree .Just won 100.00 on a 2.00 lottery ticket at the local drug store. love those extra pennies ……thanks

  4. I do enter these “receipt sweepstakes” too. I’m hoping to win a $250 gift card from the local market where a lot of my groceries are purchased, but I enter the drugstore sweepstakes too. Here’s hoping!

  5. I’m still entering the contests. No winners yet but I will keep trying and keep you up to date.

  6. Erin:
    Thanks for the challenge. I am going to give it a try also. I just entered the Dollar Tree and Fry’s (Kroger) receipt sweepstakes.
    Wishing everyone is a winner!

  7. Erin,
    From what I can see you are highly favored w the midas touch. I am eagerly wanting to know which store it was that had such outstanding customer service? Since you paid 2$ for strawberries it couldn’t have been dollar tree. You didn’t mention which store..but I would be utterly shocked to find it was Krogers. I have had many many contacts with them..done surveys, made comments on their FB page..believe me..i bought some cage free simple truth eggs and had a nasty slimy stinky green disgusting egg..i got a generic fb post ”sorry to hear that call us and use this id #” IVe also done the surveys and mentioned some very unpleasant exp at the store ..got no response at all. Feeling like eyeore, Ziggy and charley brown compared to you.

    • I bought the berries at Aldi, but it was the berry company that the survey — not Aldi. Definitely impressive customer service. I’ve had good luck with Kroger, too. They’ve always been quick to address any problem that I’ve had.

  8. I have initiated this endeavor as of this year, 2017. I have not found many success stories via the Internet. I have submitted 55 reciepts surveys thus far. Any update to this challenge?

  9. I complete the survey as often as I can. Dunkin Donuts gives a free donut- Score when I’m in a hurry. Mellow Mushroom Pizza gives an instant $5 off your order. It may not be a sweepstakes, but it is something….
