www.RD.ca/JackPot / Terrible experience!

I received with this month's edition of RD, an insert stating 'You could win thousands on the net!' and giving www.rd.ca/jackpot. When I tried this, there seems to be no such sight, as this just pulled up complaints board, and nothing about a jackpot.

    Is this a scam.. and if so ,what a horrable thing to do to loyal subscribers! We have come to trust the Readers Digest name and this is how you treat us. From now on watch what you are sending out in my subsciption.

    I had the same experience. Is it a scam and if so why would RD be doing that. I mean Readers Digest has been around for ever and are (were) trusted as well!!! So what do they have to say for themselves?????

    Why put the insert in the Readers Digest if there's no site to enter the contest. I've always trusted RD and felt that anything with their name on it was legit. Not so?

    It's not the first time with the rd. I've been a subscriber for years but this is it. I'm not renewing my subscription . Shame on you readers digest. The bigger they get the less I trust them.

    I have tried to enter this so called "contest" as well, several times over the month with no results. I kept re-checking my spelling, as well, I e-mailed RD with no response. What up with the fake contest?!

    I expected better from Reader's Digest.

    I too just now have again tried to access the "Jackpot Contest" with no success. Since the contest 'closes February 29th, 2008 at midnight' this seems to be an exercise in futility! Surely RD should make a public apology for this mix up and whoever was in charge of enclosing the pamphlet with my magazine last month should be fired!

    Please be advised that when my current subscription expires I will no longer be renewing it. I am totally fed up with all the phony websites. Just got an insert with the last magazine that was for an ipodtouch. All that was necessary was to go to www.rd.ca/ipodtouch and enter the enclosed number. 65972. IT DOES NOT EXIST. So much for THAT.

    They also give better magazine rates to Us customers and get very rude when you question why.

    I received a notice of the contest "iPod touch. There is no such contest in the e mail address. Also, do we all have the same number? 65972.

    RD, what gives here?

    Just received my copy of Rd. Enclosed was a card to win an ipod. Of course you can not access the code 65972. What is it just a ploy to get your e=mail address or what. If you are going to run a contest at least let people enter. I know from now on the advertising material will go in the garbage unread.
