I received a notification letter from Sweepsteakes Clearinghouse in Dallas Texas informing me that I had been awarded a consolation prize in the $Ten Million Dollar Sweepstakes Clearinghouse Giveaway. I was surprised, for I had not entered the contest! I received a voucher for the sum of $300.00 to be applied toward the purchase of five different items, all susposedly valued well above the $300.00 prize money. There was an expiration date that was two weeks in the future. All on the up & up .... Right! I checked several sites on the internet for the value of the prizes and each could be purchase for less than the price quoted by the clearinghouse. This is a rip-off!

If I had won a prize of $300.00 I should have been able to depposit the check in my bank account and spend it the way I want to.

This is NOT a Rip Off!

AUTHOR: T - (U.S.A.)

I purchased a hope chest for my mother and am purchasing a home theater system for myself. The chest was beautiful and was a great value. Shortly after sending my payment, I received a statement with an account number and customer service numbers. I have received account statements from them every month regarding the home theater system that I have on layaway now. I think it's a great way for people who don't have the cash up front to buy nice things!

I agree and I am in the same boat

AUTHOR: Shamara - (U.S.A.)

I thought this was too good to be true to actually get such deals, so I did some research and found the only thing worth purchasing was the luggage set because it was something I needed and I didn't have the money right away. So I mailed a check for $20.95 to the Sweepstakes Clearinghouse within the two week time frame and it was cashed right away. However, I haven't received confirmation in the mail nor information on how to make additional payments to receive the luggage set. This was well over 2 months ago and I am pretty upset right now. I should have went with my first instinct and purchased a luggage set from WALMART instead. They have no hassle layaway and provide all the information I need to contact a representative if I have questions or need to cancel at anytime. I felt I was taken advantage of and I want my money back or the merchandise delivered right away!!!

A twinge of dissapointment

AUTHOR: Margaret - ()

I like them. They give value and good service.

At first I thought they were a sweepstakes company but then I read their advertizement and saw the drawing involved was to receive the discount for the item, if I chose to buy it.

I assumed there must be a finite number of like items and accepted that I had won the chance to take advantage of the deep discount not that I was to receive a sum of money.

A twinge of dissapointment there, but I'm a big girl.

I checked prices when I started with them and still check them, comparing both their claim for the retail price and the value of their discount. They have always been as stated and though I could find similar items for less, the value would also be equal to the cheaper price.

I hope this is resolved in a satisfactory way. I would miss them.

Past & Present Purchases I Have Made & Are Paying On !

AUTHOR: Lori - ()

I have made severaly puchases in the past, and for someone in my present financial state, this has made it possible for me to buy things on a layaway plan that really fits my budget.

I have bought 3 things that I was able to pay off with the layaway plan and 3 more I am paying on now. I only had 1 item I was not satisfied with. The rest are all quality items and new when they arive to me and I didn't have to put out all the money at 1 time.

The 3 items I am paying for now is an IBM Laptop computer, A Trumpet for my son & A Flute for myself. I was able to get a Brother laptop computer for my daughter, a stero, and a Sharp Camcorder. I really am pleased with the service and there products.

I would not have been able to go out and buy these things and pay for them outright. They have a very easy plan to pay for items that someone who can't afford all the money all at once. I agree it does cost a little for S&H, but what doesn't when you order through the mail. I am planning to continue with their service as long as they offer some of these items.
