Hi. I was just reading that some of you have gotten your approval, I still have not gotten mine. What email address did it come from? Was it from the fullfillment@eprize.com one? I am so afraid it is going to be mis-directed into my junk folder,and then I may overlook it.
Maybe I'll get it today (I hope). Has anyone else not gotten theirs? Just curious.
Have a great day everyone!

yes that is the address it came from. since they are only open on weekdays, you probably wont get it today, you could always call and leave a message though

Thank you for responding. I told my hubby that if I had not heard from them by noon tomorrow,I was going to email them again. lol
I have been in communication with them about a few things because I was afraid that they would try to say that I live at a PO Box address,which I do not.I have a Rural route mailing address and I always put RR+Box,and alot of times when I am filling out forms it will pop up a thing saying that they do not accept PO Boxes..grrrr...then I am sitting here grumbling at the computer saying,"I do not have a PO Box!" Anyhoo, when I wrote them about that, they told me that they had updated my address in their system. let's hope that they really did. Sorry for rambling.
Thanks again!

Damnit, I think all the coupons are expired. I tried about 75 of them and they all are a no-go...

Sucks, my b-day comes after the fucking coupons expire...

That blows, these things could have gotten me a free Dell :(

Even the ones issued on the last day of the contest are expired. I think they expired on the first. I'm going to call Dell up and ask them if they will honor it since it expired so quickly and I just got the cash.

I also heard if you sweet talk them and tell them that you are buying a high priced item next month and that you will ask for them when you do, they will often give you 10-20% off just so they can get the comission from the high priced item next time. So maybe I can do this to get them to honor a coupon code. :D

Have a great day everyone!

I never received the initial email from the Fulfillment folks, so I kept sending them an e-mail every 2-3 days asking them what I needed to do. After a MONTH they finally sent me the affidavit via email and it's on the way back to them as we speak.

I think I'm going to have a problem with them sending the XPS 1210 to me, though, because I'm in the military stationed overseas And most companies hate shipping ANYTHING to us. We'll see...

Well, I still have heard nothing back from them as of a few minutes ago,but I am trying to be patient...if you can call checking your email every 15 minutes patient! lol :)
They are slow responding back sometimes,I know that first hand. I can't believe it took them a month to write you back,though. Good luck,I hope you hear back from them soon and that they do not give you problems with you being stationed overseas. have a great day everyone!

Hey I just got my order number...


The Other,

Did they just send your order number to you via email? How long was it between your approval and receiving your order number? Also, do you have an estimated delivery timeframe?

Sorry for all the questions..... :)

not a prob..

They emailed me order number. Well the actual approval date I don't know, but I won on the 8/1 and and started getting all my approval email responses back which was 5 of them cuz they never wrote back, so i got all my approvals on one day and the next I got approval and then I got one more approval letter after that so hopefully they will send me 6 laptops...

Well the shipping timeframe first said the 10/2 and now it says the 10/9..

Geez, I know what you mean about going nuts waiting. I wrote them the other day, so 'hopefully' I will hear from them today. Would be cool,if it just showed up here today! Not holding my breath on that one though! When I played and won, I got the congratulations email immediately - but any other emails from them have taken
f-o-r-e-v-e-r, still trying to be patient here but man, when you hear about other people getting their approvals, it is tough to be patient! lol :eek:
Congrats to everyone that has heard back from them! And rest assured for those who haven't,you are not the only one! I'll let you guys know if I hear anything today.
Have a great day!

Great news bro, since you won pretty early on, I'm hoping my email will come sometime soon seeing as how I won on the 19th. Were you able to upgrade the video in the laptop? If so, then I'll keep mine but if not I'd rather sell it along with my Q-Pack and get a laptop with a video card. Anyhow, LMK. BTW, anyone that used multiple emails get any shipping confirmation?

:)Wow! Congrats! I am jealous! Still have not heard anything from them since the last of August,when they did let me know that they had gotten my avidavit. I won on August 6th - and I sent them an email towards the end of last week asking about my status,but haven't heard back anything yet.

Glad to hear that some have gotten theirs. Deeply sorry for those disqualified.I still have not heard a word, positive or non positive.
I am supposed to be getting a Dell notebook powered by Intel Centrino Duo: Dell XPS
1210. Did anyone else win this one,too?
Quick question for those who got yours already. Was it delievered via fedX or was it someone else? Just curious.
Also, when you emailed them did you use the fulfillment@eprize email address or another one?
Have a great day everyone.

Thanks for responding. I was hoping it would be UPS,because they deliver here all the time. :)
I just am being paranoid,I guess. I did not do anything that should have disqualified me...I just can't figure out why I have not heard a word yet. I guess I am just anxious after reading all of the posts. ;)

I'm still waiting for my approval, too. They've only had the affidavit for a week now. I'll give them a little more time.

You were already told you were approved and then they disqualified you? :confused: That doesn't seem right at all.You should try and talk to someone about it.
I still have heard nothing at all from them. I won on the 6th of August,mailed my affidavit the next day. Emailed them as to whether they had gotten it,they wrote back and said they had and that I would be hearing back from them in 'approximately' two weeks,which would have been around the middle of this month...Waited until around the 21st and wrote them again,and have not gotten a reponse back yet.
What phone number are you talking about? Maybe I should call them? Or should I just hang in there? What'e everyone's opinion on it?
Hope everyone has a great day!
