So I know it goes to 10/23, but I'm wondering if anyone else is not getting any response from the Fiesta one when they text in, and if anyone who hasn't been getting a response when they enter has actually won. Just wondering if it's worth my time. I have US Cellular and so does my dad and it isn't working on either. Maybe I'll have my sister try from AT&T and see if that gets a response. Thanks if anyone can shed some light.

Also, thanks for taking over the thread (making a new one). These contest are magic I tell you.

I enter daily (AT&T) and always get a fast response, same goes for T-Mobile.

Why is Wrigley's 5 React Gum (GMR Marketing) still up there? It ended on 9/26 from what is listed and you made your post on 9/28. Is it because prizes aren't awarded till 10/4?

Thanks for responding. I've never had a problem in the past with these contest but maybe for some reason this promotion and US Cellular aren't on the same page.

Just tried the new one, no response so far...

Suggestion for the OP. Since there has been a greater number of text contest lately where we can enter for a while and then at a later date there is a prize (i.e. The Event) maybe section it off at the bottom so that we keep those listed as a reference/easy way to keep track of when the contest actually will announce winners. Just an idea.

Some of the more recent contest have had entry periods that, like "The Event" contest which end at a specific date (in the case of the Event the last day to send a text and enter was 9/30). The actual day they announce winners is later, again for "The Event" I believe it is 10/11. What I'm suggesting is that when a contest of this type is no longer accepting entries, but the prizes have yet to be rewarded, it get moved down to a "separated" part of the OP so that a). we can keep track of when the prizes are supposed to be rewarded, and b). by moving it to the bottom people will hopefully realize that they can't enter any more.

Example:

Fiesta (Velti, Inc.)
- July 26, 2010 to October 23, 2010
- 400 MSP (x 900) (10 awarded daily)
- 1 entry per person per day
- Text 'FIESTA' to 80800
- Info: http://xbox-ford.v4en.com/?mid=44394
- Rules: http://msmassive.v4e...ssive/Rules.htm

SAW 3D
- October 1, 2010 to October 31, 2010
- There is a limit of 1 entry per gamertag
- One Grand Prize Package: Ultimate Saw 3D Home Entertainment Package
55-inch 3-D LED-LCD HDTV
Four battery-operated 3-D glasses
Xbox 360 250GB console
Two tickets to Saw 3D
$200 electronics retailer gift card

- Text your Xbox LIVE gamertag to 32774
- "After the close of the Entry Period, we will randomly select the winner from among all eligible entries received."
- Details: http://www.xbox.com/....ps/default.htm

________________________________________________________________

No longer accepting entries but prizes not yet awarded

The Event (GMR Marketing) [Possibly extended?]
- July 16, 2010 to September 30, 2010
- 1600 MSP (x 625) + other prizes (all awarded 10/11)
- 1 entry per person per day
- rules: http://msftpartner.c...o.php?k=3.24012
- Text "The Event", "TheEvent", "Chase" or "Xbox" to 70734
