JCP buttons

Postby TheSingularity » Fri Nov 23, 2012 9:07 pm

I understand the concept, but damn those codes are written in such tiny little letters it's almost impossible to read!

Typed in 2 codes, they said I'd hear back by email and I haven't yet. This was 6ish tonight.

I entered codes yesterday and didn't get an email back until today. I entered 2 codes yesterday and 2 codes today. I got 3 emails back saying to try again. Later I got a 4th email that said I was the winner of a $10 certificate.

I thought the idea was that every button was a winner.

I entered two codes this evening from the buttons we got. It took about fifteen minutes, but both of them came back as a $5 holiday certificate. From what I gather almost every one is a winner.

So you have to wait for an email? They can't just have a website that instantly tells you whether you win or not? Welcome to 1998 JCP.

I bet the idea is to get your email/facebook login so they can then send you advertisements. :wink:

Does anyone know, can you use more then one gift certificate on a purchase or is it 1 per purchase?

I finally got the email, both $10 off 10 certificates, went to figure out how to use them. Not only do you have to wait for the email to find out if you win, you have to wait to redeem a certificate... and in stores only. :? JCP is more behind the times than Boscov's perhaps. Nah, but almost.

Curious how your stores are giving them out One per request? A few at a time? Is anyone popping by just to ask for buttons (without shopping?) I rarely go to our JCP (it is going out of business in January so won't be there much longer anyway.)

On BF I got 2 and my daughter (shopping as well) got 2. We won $5 certificates on 2, $10 on 1, and try again on other.

When I went Friday they just had them laying out on the counter and said to pick us up some. We only took two since there were two of us.
