    It is a waste of your time! of course everyone wins! then they want to send a rep over to your house to get your opinion on their new “alkiline” water! You know it is only a twenty minute presentation that lasts ninety minutes resulting in super high pressure sales! You end up purchasing a case just to get the guy out of your house! Then you seem to have a problem canceling your monthly subscription and a case gets delivered every month until you go to your bank and have your visa cancelled! sounds like fun! not! The rep cannot take cash either!

    I don’t bother with these type of things. I always say nothing is for free so you know there is something behind it. Be aware and ignore these types of contests that claim you can win something when you never entered anything in the first place.

    The rules are all clearly stated on the back of the card as are the odds of what prize you can win. Everything is completely transparent when you call the number on the back. It’s advertising just like stated on the phone when you call. No one asks for your credit card info or even your last name so I don’t really understand how this is a scam? It’s marketing the company pays for the cards and the prizes and for the cards to be delivered.

    I also got 4 hockey sticks in a row on the bottom. This is 100% a scam. Their website has typos and fake information. They send the same card out to everyone. Do not fall for these dumb scams, be safe!

    When I called on purpose they mentioned it’s Toronto water and air filter company. I asked why they are doing this, they mentioned it’s their marketing and one of the sales person will come home to match my card to let me know what I won. I mentioned I am not interested as I already have water filterstion system. They do ask are you home owner.

    I just got one of these cards in the mail. Not surprisingly I'm a "winner".

    Back in the 70's I got a home presentation for a Filter Queen vacuum cleaner. At the end of the song and dance I was given a ridiculous price for it to which I said no. The woman got all upset. I told her she should have told me the price at the beginning instead of at the end of her presentation. I did get my "prize", a little cutting board - for cheese, I think.

    I did receive some card asking to scratch and if 4 symbol match they will send a representative for a sales pitch this time is life time water system They will waste 2 - 3 hrs of your time and ask you to purchase or you will lose some great benefits. you don't get anything nither gift nothing . Just lose you time. The product is $10,000 plus.

    Dont even waste your time. I decided to purposely follow them. They came and took almost 2 hrs pitching their very expensive products. After that, they told me to sign on there and then or else offer would lapse, besides they are very busy due to increased demand and they cant assure me that they will follow up. When I challenged them that if I cant access them during sales, then I dont think I will access them post sales, they said they will keep awake till midnight to ensure I dont miss promotion.

    On pricing, both me and my friend in another city won the same thing. A card that directs you to a website where anyone can go and get the discounts they are talking about. This is simply a sales tactic. You dont win anything

    I received one as well...when I looked up the phone number, both the local and toll free number belong to Atlantis Water And Air.

    I found this:

    "Manitouwadge and area residents are advised to be cautious regarding a recent promotion by a company believed to be from London Ontario which disguises itself as a lottery of sorts distributed through Canada Post recently.

    While the tickets claim there is “no purchase required” and that all Canadian and US residents (except Quebec residents and prior winners) are eligible to win, the go on to state that entrants must be employed or retired homeowners who request a presentation with the “view to possibly enter into an agreement” with them to supply a homecare product. When we called the person on the other end quickly became very irate when we asked some basic questions about the nature of their business eventually, before hanging up, shouting that “we sell $5000 pieces of equipment, of course you have to be a homeowner” which seems to imply that they expect callers to do more than ‘view a presentation’.

    This isn’t a new ploy by the company listed as 2164909 Ontario Limited on their “scratch ticket” promotional cards as a quick Google Search brings up years of complaints and warnings by OPP detachments from throughout the province which describe very similar misrepresentations of who they are and what they offer..."
