Default WalMart Surveys- Does anyone really win?

I seem to have great timing in that I get a WM survey on my receipt about everytime lately. Mind you I live where there is no WM nearby. I have asked the cashiers, and NO one yet has heard of anyone winning $1000 from WalMart.

Hi BOOMM

Can imagine that with the laws in the USA, that someone must win this prize for them to offer it, https://survey.walmart.com/Surveys/W...ak/Winners.htm not posted any winners in 2009 tho.

Yep. I think by law they must award the money to a winner. It's probably as minimally awarded as possible.

From Halo's link, it looks like it's 5 winners a quarter. lol...you probably have more chance of winning the lottery.

Indeed Laura, minimum by law is what many competitions from large companies follow, half the time you have more chance of being hit by lightening.

But its a great way to get demographics for virtually no cost at all, if they where to employ a company to survey customers it would cost a fair but, but dangling the carrot and putting the onus on the customer to do this themselfs its like free customer feedback, with likely much more data.

I've never entered that survey, who know as much as I've gone to WalMart I could have been a contender.

oh by the way I saved $100.00 by switching to GEICO
