I don't post here a lot, but I thought I'd share this.  I've read a lot of people on here complaining about not receiving prizes when they win.  Well, after being a member here for almost 2 years, I finally won a prize.  Actually, two of them off of the same (14 game) streak (hat and hoodie).  After winning, and replying to the email that they sent me the next day, I received my prizes both in less than a week after winning them.  I'm glad that I found out first-hand that Covers is on the up and up.  Playing a FREE game with the chance to win $100,000 is cool as hell.  So to all of you who think that the site doesn't pay up, YOU"RE WRONG.  Thanks to Covers for providing the contests, and to the rest of the members here, keep playing, follow the rules, and you can win, and receive your prizes.

I agree, my 9 game win streak ended 6 weeks ago and I received my hat today, anyone who hasn't received their prize from covers must not have responded properly to the email sent to them.

Is there a way to get around NOT having a paypal account to receive cash if you win?

I am new to this site, and currently entered in all the free contests covers.com has to offer.  Does anyone have any advice on what requirements needed to receive prizes?  I don't want any question to whether I meet their qualifications in case I win prizes.

are you breathing and are you in the States  then you are eligible for all prizes,   I assume you are of legal age.

Seems as though you are new as well seeing as Tuppy posted in this thread. People have received their cash prizes ranging all the way up to $100 000 (maximum on Streak Survivor). Yesterday I officially won the NCAAF contest for the week and they said I'd have the money in my paypal account within 24 hours. I'll tell you tmrw if I get it

I just got my account confirmed through paypal and I should have my money in my bank account within 5-7 business days. So all in all will take just under 2 weeks from my confirmation email to actually receiving my money in my bank

Rizzo told us 3 months ago that you can participate at Streak Survivor even if you are not from States, but you can` t receive hats and hooodies, only cash. So you have to bring a paypal account for cash, but u can` t receive hats and hoodies. I am from Europe and I am allowed just for cash, that` s what he told me.

I have a premiere account, but what ` s the difference between the first two: personal and premiere? It`s the same garbage I believe.

So last tuesday I received the email saying i won $100 for NCAAF contest. Took 2 days to get that in my paypal account and paypal said id have it in my bank account within 5-7 Business days (OCT 12th). I received it in m account today. So both covers and paypal were pretty damn fast

I have won numerous contests here on covers and they have sent and paid me every time, no problems. I figure the ones who claim they never received their prizes must have not answered the emails properly, pretty straight forward, confirming your address, how hard is that to do in a timely fashion?
