I won 15,550 Bonus points, which I assume are MR points!! Who wants to repeat this promotion??
I won 5600. Sure, why not?!
Don't think I crested a grand. Normal bad luck for me.
Let's go another round!
I wonder if you'd be as eager to repeat this if you had collected the same number of points I did (around 2,000). I'm guessing not.
Sure, it's fun when you win a bunch of points. Not so much if you end up under 1,000 as many Insiders did. That's the problem with promos that includes odds of winning. Some folks end up with a lot more than others simply due to luck of the draw. Unlike nights/stays based promos, on this one we all did the same thing (depending on how often you played) and got very different results. Those who didn't win big won't see this as a very good promotion. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you ended up with a decent haul. I'd just point out that it's funny how winning 10,000 points once during this contest changes everything.
29 Ways to Spell Lame?
I'd give something like this another try despite only modest success. After all, whatever points we won didn't cost a thing (other than a few minutes invested each day to play the game).
Can’t disagree. The previous post was when it wasn’t working for anyone. Sarcasm rules,
Hey? Isn't there a Sweepstakes (prize drawing) that we entered each day we played 29 Ways to Stay? Anyone know date of drawing? C

Hooray . I ended with 10,800. Can’t wait to see who here on Insiders wins one of the BIG ones. Good Luck all
Yay! I won 50 points... a couple of times! Lucky if I broke 1,000 points, but not sure as I never got any emails. Looking forward to more generous Mega-Bonus in the future. It's all good though, as people said - a few clicks for 50 points isn't too much to ask.
6000 points 1@5000, 1@500, and 10@50 on 27 total entries.
