Just a question for all of you lucky hunters. Do any of you run Windows 7 Premium?

thanks for your suggestion to zoom in at 75%. It really helped and got one rug per account for all eight that I look after. It took a little over an hour. Webkinz insider members rule.
Kudos to all who share their suggestions that work so very well.

I am confused by your post, since this contest does not ask a math question at all. The only thing you have to do is put in your login and password info, which my 5 year old does on his own account, and then type in letters and numbers copied from a box. My 5 year old can do better than I can on that part. He enjoys the fact he can see them when I sometimes can't.

I'm not sure about the purpose of the math questions in past click and wins other than, I think you may have to be 18 or older to enter and that may be why they have them. Maybe they figure if someone younger tries to enter, they will need to get a parent's help (therefore there permission) to enter.

This is actually the easiest click and win I have seen. There was no math question and no need to worry if it would make it to your email. The prize goes straight to your dock.

I believe typing in the numbers and letters in the code has to do with stopping computers from auto filling out forms online. It is a common thing I see online to test that a person is filling out a form and not a computer.

Once your Webkinz news view is set up, right click on the "tab" top and select "duplicate tab". Repeat the "duplicate tab" step until you have about 12 tabs open. Next right click one of the tab tops again (doesn't matter which one), and select "refresh all". Finally, click through each of the 12 tabs, looking on the left side for movement. don't close any tabs! just refresh all again after you have finished quickly scanning each tab. generally I found a rug within 10 "refresh alls".

good luck! I love this type of contest.
I didn't know about this. I'll save your post to try in the future.

I believe it is. It has been in past ones where you typed in the username and password to win it. I'm sure it says in the user agreement or whatever they call it.

First, there is no math question on this contest.

Second, the math question is designed so that people cannot use automatic programs to fill out the forms. This is fairly standard practice on a wide variety of websites and is supposed to protect legitimate contest entries (i.e. those filled out by an actual person) from unscrupulous people who would cheat to get more entry forms and prizes. I am glad that Ganz protects us from cheaters.

Third, as another poster noted, some contests are required by law to be 18 and over and those are often the ones with the math questions. Most 18+ should be able to answer that question. If not, they can always come to WI and see that someone's posted the answer to the equation here.

I disagree that we, as WW users, have any "rights" to participate in contests. Ganz can make whatever restrictions they want on contests. They could even stipulate only people with 6 toes can win. It's their contest. Whether it's wise to make these restrictions is a separate issue. I'm just glad that US residents are able to participate, unlike the original Chipettes click-to-win contest awhile back.

Hope everyone gets a rug! Happy hunting!
