Instant Wins - requesting info

Hello fellow AARPers!

 

I am asking a favor of those of you lucky enough to win an Instant Win. If you would, please, after you win, post as a reply to this what day, time and zone (EST, CTS, etc) you won. 

 

I have tried different times during the day to win with no luck - even between 2 and 4 AM EST.  Now I realize I may not be hitting the exact second which the system is supposingly generating the win time for but I am genuinely curious if the win time is the same time every day. Your input would help me understand what is going on with these illusive Instant Wins. Just call me Sherlock!

 

Thank you!!

I won today, Kohl gift card for $10.  I won it around 12:00 am. (Pacific time)  I try to play the instant win around the same time everyday.

Hello Friends!

I must have little luck for I’ve been trying regularly for 1 1/2 years without a win. I’m use to seeing The reply “Sorry.”

I use my own winnings, over thousands spent. I’m positive one day the word will change to “You Won!” I’ve not won a sweepstakes either but I’ll keep taking the quizzes and watching the videos;  I’ve enjoyed learning and staying up to date with everything😊😊

Positive thoughts for one day!

I love your positive attitude!

Anyone win using the free entry method?  My sister says she's been winning a lot using points but I enter using free entry and have not won in a long time.

OMG!!! I actually just won an Instant Win!! 10:34 EST on Wed September 1. This after going at least 6 months wallowing as a daily loser.

Congrats! I have been trying too, for the instant wins for at least 6 months wasting all my points and have been getting disgusted. I kept thinking I should just do the ones that give you like $5 or $10, but lately not having much luck on those either. Must be a lot of people on here doing it!

My latest was 9:23PM MST 8/29. Seems to be all random times. I've won early in the morning, afternoon and evenings. Doesn't seem like there is a pattern at all. I just change what time I enter them.

Thank you, Sean. I am glad you won one.  I have tried all different times of the day as well to the point where I was pretty sure nobody was winning. I am glad you proved me wrong.

 

Take care.

Are you using points or free entry to win?

Hmmm, what's free entry?  I must be missing something.  I only play instant win occasionally with points and have never won anything.

Thank you for asking this. I was sure I was the only one who didn't know what a free entry was.

Now let's hope someone gives us an answer!  😉

Free entry is in the small print of the rules. It's a pain because you have to enter all your info for every single instant win game which is 7 times. It's easier to just do one quiz for 450 pts and do the points method.
