Sweepstakes Clearinghouse - Sweepstakes Clearinghouse (Scam Or Not??)

review #171664

I am confused.I just received information about the sweepstakes clearinghouse by mail and i would like to order the RCA Stereo System, but now i am worried after reading the complaints.

I wanted to call ahead but cannot find a customer service number anywhere on the information if received. Please someone send me a number. I don't want to send money if there is no way of contacting them.

There are too many scams out there to be just sending money without the proper information given in the packetts that they send out.I HAVE to know what's going on BEFORE any money changes hands.

Just received a call saying we won 2.5 and a benz. Wanted us to send $480.00 by mail for registration and insurance on the new car. We were told to buy some pak at Walmart before they would give us the prizes

I got the same call but it was 2.5 mill and a brand new benz asking to send 250 dollars to this Oraine Blair. I know it was a scam because they had my name address and account # from my phone provider. Upon calling into my phone company they stated that they had not entered me into any contest or sweepstakes so b careful and dont send them anything

I have ordered from Sweepstakes Clearinghouse for years. They charge the price of the item plus a few dollars more. They give yopu the vouchers but the item only cost what you'd pay after deducting the voucher amount anyhow. I know this but the convenience of making payments suited my situation. Most everything I have received has been great products. I did just receive an E6400 Laptop (refurbished) from them. It came on and I set it up as much as I could,however the bundle Disc they snet with it couldn't load. Either the DVD-RW drive isn't reading it or the disc is ***. The battery was near dead when I turned it on ,went dead and now it doesn't seem to charge at all. The power Cord /Adapter could be damaged. Basicly I read online that those type Laptops are the worst ever made when new and this is refurbished supposedly. They told me It would be set up with Windows 7 but it gives me information message that it is not a legal version. So here I sit pissed off and wondering what to do next.probably buy a power Cord/Adapter and figure out what is wrong from there. Getting a hold of Sweepstakes Clearinghouse and getting things taken care of is not easy. I think they deliberately avoid customer complaints

IF YOU GET THOSE VOUCHERS YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST THROW YOUR MONEY IN THE GARBAGE....YOU'LL GET SECOND HAD ITEMS...LIKE LAP TOPS OR LARGED PRICE ITEMS...SURE POTS AND PANS MIGHT BE OKAY BUT YOU CAN'T USE A OLD BROKEN LAP TOP...NO WAY TO CONTACT THEM WONDER WHY :grin CUZ THEY ALREALY KNOW WHAT IS BEING SENT TO CUSTOMERS THAT TRUSTED THEM AND THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE THE BA*** TO TALK TO YOU

I have been dealing with these guys for years. I have gotten several products from them. and I have had no problem with them. Plus what other place lets you have layaway. You can't get that at Walmart anymore.

Sweepstakes clearinghouse S&H prices are out the roof.

DO NOT order from these people unless you like paying $250(give or take a few dollars) S&H for each item shipped.

Like another writer here, I've purchased several items from the company, and have never had a problem. I bought a laptop that was refurbished, but anyone who READ THE AD would have known this. It still works great 5 years later. I've priced several items from the brochures, and almost without exception the vouchers DO save you $200.
As far as contacting SC for product information, please remember it is a promotional company, NOT a retailer.
As for the $250 shipping, I've never heard of such a thing. I bought a memory foam mattress and the shipping is $35.

Please forgive. I did post a link to the Better Business Bureau in Dallas TX. I did not mean to break a rule.. only wanted to site my reference for the contact info I found on sweepstakes clearinghouse. The Pots and Pans are a decent value although maybe not worth $489.95 NRR except at Macy's and other HIGH dollar stores.

I would also like to add that the QVC shopping channel and HSN both have money back guarantees,and they send you a return label to return any merchandise,even if you just change your mind,or it's not the color you really want,etc. They have a 90 day guarantee,and you can return anything you purchase now,all the way till January. :)

8) If you want to get quality merchandise,it would be better to order from QVC Shopping channel,or HSN. I personally have ordered from HSN. I got a great deal on a Lexmark printer,and about $60 worth of software was included. The products are brand new,and at least you can see from the demonstrations on TV,exactly how a product works.They have a flex payment plan,and you get the item sent to you after you make the first payment. A lot of items have free shipping,and they also have a lot of mark downs & special sales.I also got this letter in the mail,and It may very well be a scam.If you pay by bank/credit card,Boom! Now they have access to your account! Later on they can come back and charge anything they want to.They must have gotten my address from the internet,as I don't usually get any mail here. I always have mail sent to my P.O.Box. They might be connected with Publishers Clearing House,as I just starting receiving mail here from them too. There was another scam going around,"Blue Hippo"and there was an article in the Seniors Weekly paper warning people not to fall for this scam.Shortly thereafter,Blue Hippo changed their name. They also wanted you to "Put money down" and what they don't tell you,is that you don't get your merchandise untill it is paid in full.Oh, yeah ... You Have to have an active checking account. Remember...these people are rich enough from all the scamming they do,and they can well... Show more
