Hey everyone. I always see these different websites with these so called free offers and of course most of them are scams they usually offer things like free game systems or ipods and theres always a ketch you have to pay or agree to a bunch of rediculouse offers, or they want your credit card number and its eventually reveled that its not free, and what I'd like to know is have any of you ever really won a free prize online, and I mean completely free no catch no points no fees no tricks.

I won a $150 check once. I joined a site and each month they draw some one who joined and give them a check. No strings attached, I cashed the check and had some fun.

Yes I agree that most of the sites that claim that you'll win free stuff are just scams and so far Iv never won anything online free thats why I'm curious to know if anyone else has ever won anything online. thanks for responding.

I have won lots of free prizes online at different websites. Once I won an ipod nano 2nd generation and I didn't want it so I sold it on ebay for over $100. I won a comment contest on gather last week and am waiting for my hat to come in the mail. I won a licence plate frame that says live beat dad on it at mycoolcontests a few days ago. I am also waiting for that to come in the mail. At other sites I have won money as well as other gifts that I cant remember now since its been so long! If you want to join any of the above things such as mycoolcontests or gather let me know by sending me a private message and I will send you the links to join so I can get credit for referring you! I am very new to mycoolcontests but a woman on gather wins there all the time!

I have never won any prizes from online sites. I used to try, now I don't even do that. I used to play online games for free prizes and money and never won anything from those either. If I play now it is just for fun not expecting to win anything.

Hi ya apples99 No I have never won anything online. I don't tend to try because I have been caught out before and paid the price, not a lot but enough for me to call myself an idiot and not to get caught up in anything like that ever again. I am daft sometimes but it didn't seem like an obvious scam!

HI there apple..:-0 Well I tried joining to some competitions that never ask for your credit card number but I guess I am not lucky to win those prizes.Yes it is true that there are lots of scammers online and if they are asking with you credit card then better say goodbye to them because for sure it is a scam..But if there are sites that is offering for free then better try it..:-0 God bless and have a nice day..:-0

Yes i have. I won a DVD back in August. I got an email saying that i had won a new release DVD because i had entered a competition online. I had actually forgotten all about it as i had entered it some months before hand. I was quite skeptical but as it was from a reputable company that had been around for many years i decided to go for it as they did not ask for any money. So i emailed my contact details back and about two weeks later i got the DVD through the post. It was a nice surprise.

Hi Apples: the only thing I have won,without playing games, is a $5.00 check for a writing contest and was published online. Other than that, I play games online for tickets or points, to get my prizes.
