    BigWin: Cash Instead of Prize?

    Just wondering if it's possible to get money from BigWin instead of the prize...i.e. a $3,000 check instead of the Vespa?

    Never in a million years. everyone who reads will get checks, But YOU will get a 50 dollar Razor Scooter with Vespa written on the side in crayon.

    What a goof, like 52 posts and 3 weeks of membership here gives your the right to hate on a n00b asking a legit question.

    You could try asking for a check, who knows, maybe you'll get lucky. If you did the vespa, you'll get a check.

    A check is under their sole descression (so I was told on the phone) My ibook is backordered so I asked about a check... they also said I could get a 1K check instead of my plasma worth 2K :eek:

    Yeah, I talked to them today. They said the check would be sent out if the Vespa was unavailable at the time.

    Don't encourage this behavior....NEVER do the gift if you seek a check, stick to the Visa GCs for that....

    I think if we ran a total on all the people that are calling each day asking about a check, it would scare you. I think every 5th post starts with "I called yfdirect ans asked....(insert constantly repeated question here) Please for the love of ......pete! Stop calling and pestering about stupid crap like that. One person claims to have gotten a check, it looks like everyone will, if the cycle is not in production. Trust the people that have gone before you and take their word for some of this, we have no reason to mislead you, espeically when it would only serve to piss off YFD.


    OK off the soapbox. next?
