From February 16 to end of day April 1, there is a radio sweepstakes that will pay your bills up to $10,000 and I suggest you enter with any of your credit card statements that you manufacture spend. This is a simple sweepstakes like the entries to the IHG Priceless Surprises
How To Play
Z100 is hosting the “Elvis Duran Pays Your Bills” and if you are not already a “ZVIP” member then you need to register. Once you register an account, you will enter the bill type and amount.
This sweepstakes will pay up to $10,000, and I suggest submitting your highest credit card statements as an eligible bill under $10,000. No, not because of structuring as some people encourage you to do, but because it says “up to $10,000.” The official rules does not make it clear if you submit a $12000 bill if they will pay the $10,000.
2. HOW TO PLAY AND WINNER SELECTION: Listen to the Station between Tuesday, February 16, 2016 and end on Friday, April 1, 2016 at 7:10am ET, 12:00pm ET, 3:00pm ET, 5:00pm ET & 7:00pm ET for the Elvis Duran Pays Your Bills name of the hour to be announced. If you hear your name, you have (15) fifteen minutes to call 1-800-424-0100 to claim your prize. If the entrant does not call 1-800-424-0100 within (15) fifteen minutes, the prize will be forfeited and will not be awarded. The Company will at random select one (1) eligible entry from all entries received and announce the name. If the entrant is unable to verify registration information and/or does not call in within the allotted amount of time the entrant will automatically be disqualified and their prize will be forfeited
If you’re already manufactured spending, you might as well just submit the bills and see what happens as it does not cost you anything and maybe there’ll be extra gravy. The sweepstake rules does not say anything about how far back your credit card statements can go, but I would play it safe and use some recent statements. I have heard over the radio that plenty of people use a mortgage or credit card bill that were paid.
If you do win, you’ll receive a 1099, but I wouldn’t mind paying the taxes if someone paid my bill.
