“Use it or lose it!” Don’t worry, I’m not talking about your vacation time. No, I’m referring to all the amazing new features being included with your subscription, the purpose of which is to make winning as easy as possible. For starters, you may have noticed that we began including a special return envelope with every issue. This envelope is enclosed specifically for all your puzzle prize entries. Now, after you complete one (or all) of our puzzles and games, you can throw them into this handy envelope, drop it in the mail, and rest assured that your name is in the running to win one of our amazing prizes. See for yourself on page 50.
You may have also noticed that there’s a scannable bar code on each online sweepstakes featured in our publication. This nifty feature allows you to scan the code with your smart phone, and immediately you’re taken right to the sponsor’s website where you can enter to win in mere seconds. If you haven’t tried yet, you should give it whirl. Like the pre-printed postcards we have in the back of the magazine for the mail-in sweepstakes, these bar codes will save you time and reduce the risk of your entry being disqualified. All these features were added to make things easier for you, so please, use them at your leisure. With nearly $400,000 in prizes this month, I don’t want you to miss out on anything.
