HSN.com is having a birthday celebration where you can win gift cards. I would love a gift card, especially since Martha Stewart is coming to them soon, so I play every day.
Now, I purchase occasionally from HSN (mostly crafts), and I am an HSN cardholder (they had free shipping on craft items in March for cardholders). Mother, however is/does neither of those. Every day I log in first with my email, then with Mom's, and play the instant win game. In the past few weeks, I have won... maybe six or seven special offers, such as free shipping (pry will use when the afore mentioned MS comes) and "$20 off of $100" (pry won't use, never have purchased anything that expensive) and various percents off of purchases. Mom has won... NEVER.
What are the odds that this is truly a random game? Not too great in my opinion. The consumer who purchases and has a card- 7 wins out of two weeks. The non-consumer- ZERO. Yep, sounds like it is rigged to me!
They must not be trying to gain NEW customers, huh?
Still wish I could win a big gift card tho... sigh.
Have a great day,
