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?????
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 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.
I agree with all the above complaints. I, too tried to log on for the ipod with acess code: 65972...it does not seem to exist. Whats up with that? RD always seemed trustworthy.I wonder whats happening. I'm disappointed in them.
not the first time for me also, , just received anothercontest in this months book, ipod giveaway, , no such site, , just complaints galore... french canada given the rest of the world the finger, , hummn just my humble opinion thanks in advance ...
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.
