It doesn't matter how early you try to get one of your giveaways unfortunately because I am in mountain time everything is already gone so what are you going to do about giving everyone a chance or is this a scam I've spent a lot of money with your company and I'm waiting on an order now and I'm not happy about not being given a chance like the others

Honestly Wish does annoy me with their non tracking packages!! I will say this though, I won the 72 piece acrylic set on this giveaway!! Won the first day actually! So no not a scam.

I've tried the giveaway many times immediately after it starts and no matter what I click on, even if it says there are a certain number such as 58 remaining, it will always pop-up that no more are available even though it says 58

I have had the same problem that Berlinj talks about. I have hit the claim button and it says none available. It always shows there are a lot still available. I tried for the bracket that was on tonight. It showed 37/73 available even 2 seconds before it ended. I feel like it is a scam as well. I live in the central standard time so it has nothing to do with location.

@??!! I have won items but it started to do this. My cousin too. She won and now it does this to her. I have uninstalled and installed and it doesn't work. I have also emailed and I got a general reply.

Won twice now. Seen the banner 3 times. Day 1, 903 I didn't getting anything. Day 2, 908 won a magnetic phone holder for the car, day 3 913 won a trimmer. I simply clicked back and forth on the daily rewards gift box icons info and current. Just keep doing that and eventually it'll allow you to win
Go for items that have lots of qty. Does not have the option on ios to participate

I live in Arizona. I would have the same problem too I would have two available items and they would still be available at a certain amount and yet it would give me that it does not have any items available this is very frustrating. We need to complain directly to the head boss of Wish cause this is upsetting !

you just have to refresh the page quickly in order to get them. my question is how do u change the category of items in the giveaways. because its always the same things

I live in the mountain time area. I go on every night, and the daily giveaway always starts between the times they say it will (9pm-9:15pm). I've won a lot. To name a few, I've won a 5 piece purse set, a 6 piece purse set, a heart rate monitor watch, a princess castle tent, and many other things. I can prove I've won all of this by showing my order history/details. It's not a scam. I don't win every night. I think it's about luck and about how fast you try to claim an item.

I have been on wish every night and it dosnt show me that it starts till 9:13. So when I try to claim something it tells me that there are no more items left for any of products. If this keeps up then I won't bee using wish anymore and I will be telling my friends about it as well.

@Laura Mae Deeds it starts BETWEEN 9 an 9:15. i won the rose phone case on that exact giveaway, you just have to be fast. Seriously, its an app, the giveaway isnt the entire thing. Good for you for telling your friends about it, causing drama about not winning a giveaway. Its nobodies fault that you cant win. When it says no more are left but there are it means they are out of that particular size. Why am i the only one who knows this. Seriously, use your head.

@IdiotsEverywhereLol Uh.. since you think you're so smart, let me set you straight! Not everything is size, color, etc. Many things only have one option. So, smart-aleck, if you dont have a solution, shut ur ignorant mouth! Being rude for no reason and still WRONG! Use your head!
N  1st of Nov, 2017 by    -1 Votes
@IdiotsEverywhereLol I wondered why you can't claim anything until the app lets you and by then, everything is gone. What should I do? I tried today and it told me I could claim something but by then it was 9:11 pm and everything was gone!

Sorry for my rant but can't stand unnecessary rudeness from ignorant people. Especially when they don't have a clue what they're talking about or only have part of the information. Now, if the have a leg to stand on, maybe so...
But I digress! I have been trying to claim as well. Earlier tonight, i did click on one and it sent me to the item's sell page and it tried charging me $48. I went back, then it said giveaway just began. It was 5 after 9. I tapped same item and then it said it was claimed. With 17 left. No size or color options. It was a black bluetooth earpiece.
I don't know how it works. It is a shame b/c I order tons from Wish.
Guess we just keep trying...
Also, usually when In sign in to app it immediately tells me about the giveaway. This time I had to search for it! Something is odd
Regardless, Wish is the bomb. My stuff ships oretty quick. About 3 weeks from China, not bad!!

Id like to know why a wish customer care rep isn't commenting with answers. I'd like to have some answers too.

It's an app shared world wide. When the alert comes on to claim you must keep in mind your also at the mercy of your Internet service provider getting you that message before the rest of the world. If an item only has 17 available, it's usually the more interesting free item and will be claimed by more people. The reason it still shows items available while it's telling you there are none left is because it's an app. The processing/loading time isn't going to be spot on in an instant, especially when you have a server full of people looking at the same item.
Stop acting like entitled [censor]. Wish doesn't owe any of you anything.

I have had the same problem and it's really irritating. They need to find another way .I've tried 3 days in a row to win something on the give away.It started at 9 and at 9:01 they were saying everything was gone. How is that even possible?
N  22nd of Oct, 2017 by    +1 Votes
To those wondering why it says they have a certain amount, but then say unavailable. It's not because it's a scam I have won 3 different items( not my first choice in items, but I won none the less) and they are all shipped and on their way right now. Anyway back to the numbers issue. The likely cause is the servers failing to update do to the overload of people claiming items. This is still Wish's fault as they have been doing this for long enough they could bump their server load higher around 9 and then set it back to normal after. The influx of users suddenly "buying" and processing orders probably bogs the servers down to a point they don't properly update quick enough to show the correct number of available items. Also if you have won anything before, it gives you a whole hour countdown to checkout. There could be people who have claimed it, but have it still in their cart waiting to checkout, which might prompt the number to stay up just in case they don't checkout in time. In short, there's no telling exactly why the giveaway acts like this without contacting support and asking directly. Hope this helps anyone wondering why the giveaways act the way they do.

They switch my give away i use to see 125items now only 75
N  27th of Oct, 2017 by    0 Votes
@Christopher Parks Well, if you still have 75 items showing on your give away you still have about 60 more than anyone else and we'd like to know the trick you use...

I was just wondering if anyone is using an IPhone and is able to play the daily giveaway. I personally have the galaxy and play - and have won a lot of items on this app. The same goes for my daughter. But people I have told about the game and have an IPhone they don't even get the option for the giveaway. So long story short does anyone use an IPhone if so how can my friends that do have an IPhone get and play the giveaway?

@Conniep To my knowledge if you are using Iphone instead of android you cannot do/have access to the giveaway. I do not know why that is but i have found that to be true with the 100s of people that i know have Iphone and can't do it.

Ive won so many items on the giveaway. My kids have also won many items. Fidget spinners, flashlights, strip lights, purses, makeup, wireless headphones, earbuds, knives, sd cards and clothes. Sometimes I go for days not getting anything and then I will win something for a few days in a row. It depends on how well the app is loading for me. I just suggest to keep trying and you will eventually win. It was literally a month before I won anything when I first started.

I have been reading comments and so many people look confused. If anyone wants to know i would be glad to share with you exactly how the daily wish giveaway works. I have won many things. In fact i usually win things every day. Even the things where there is only 1-2 available. I have read many people have a problem with it showing them there is 46/70 available, and yet when they click claim it tells them there is no more available. I have read because they don't have the size you have chosen. That is incorrect. it is not because they don't have the size you picked. Again if anyone wants to know how exactly the giveaway works and what strategies to use to get stuff almost everyday. I would be happy to explain. Yes the daily giveaway is legit and real. It annoys me when people are crying and complaining about something they don't understand.
