Sweeps Success Story: I Found a $600 Prize in my Spam Folder

by Freebies4Mom on June 2, 2011 9:30 am

RecycleBank sent me an email with the subject line  “You’re a Green Your Home Winner!” requiring my immediate response by faxing a signed and notarized affidavit in order to claim my prize worth $600. I found this email in my Spam Folder! Remember to check your Spam folder carefully and do not automatically delete everything that goes to it. You can usually tell if an email is spam or not by looking at both the Sender and the Subject.

Here’s what my Green Your Home prize includes: Nook Color, Honeywell Conventional 7-Day Programmable Thermostat, Bye Bye Standby Wireless Energy Saving Starter Kit, Voltaic OffGrid Solar Backpack. Thank YOU for this prize because your referrals helped me to earn it! It’s actually turned into a prize for my entire family because I gave the backpack to my husband, the wireless energy saving kit to my dad, and the Nook Color to my mom. It feels wonderful to give back to my family who supports me and my blog.

I won a free Trike from Radio Flyer last month based on something you posted months ago!  I at first thought it was SPAM and called the company to make sure and they assured me that it was all true and it was already in the mail.  My son loves it sooooo much and we can’t be happier!

Congrats!! You are very lucky to have caught that!!!


Sue June 2, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Congratulations! Last year I found a win from Redbook in my spam folder. It was a gift certificate for a boutique that makes custom handbags. I love mine and it was way more than I could afford to spend on one.

Congrats!  too bad, I don’t have much luck like you.  I been entering contests for years now and have yet to win even once 🙁

Super important to check that spam folder!  Last night I found a win in my spam folder too.  It was from Clorox Bleach & was a $175 set of Egyptian sheets & pillows!    I needed new sheets & pillows too but would have bought whatever was on sale at Target. 😀

Heather maybe you can give us more tips on how to tell the real email from the spam. Thenks Judy ,
