Hello!

I'm not always very good at checking posts when they get bumped but really glad I did with this one: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6310793/e-19-12-win-up-to-10-000-paypal-users-free-entry-route-available/p1

Quite a few MSE compers have won weekly prizes already, but Paypal aren't actually emailing people to let them know! So it's definitely worth checking either the 'Rewards' section of the Paypal app every week (not least because if you don't spend it by 31/12, you lose it!). EDIT: Paypal are now emailing winners, but the winning emails seem to arrive a few days after the reward appears in your account!

**If you don't have the app, I found it by logging into the Paypal website and clicking on the 'wallet' tab. Then scroll down the left-hand column until you see 'offers' at the bottom. I did this and found I had £25**

Anyway, I thought I'd post it here for anyone who's like me and hasn't looked at the post again since entering! Hope there are some more winners
xx

    Well I have the app and once I click rewards its like my phone goes into a weird spasm and I cannot see a thing.EDITED, Just checked the other thread and checked again but it looks like I wasnt lucky this time.
    So I tried on my laptop and cannot see how to check, I cannot click the wallet tab, under the pay and get paid tab are only the 3 choices under it which are money, bank account and cards and paypal business debit mastercard.......

    Do you have to have the app to check?

    Just looked using my PC and not sure where to look.

    Click on wallet at the top of the page. It will then have your funding sources (paypal balance, bank account etc) on the left hand side, and below that says 'offers' and if you won, it'll be there

    I don't have Offers below my funding sources - so I guess that means I haven't won...  :(

    Luckily, I think Paypal have started emailing people so hopefully all winners will get an email. x

    Can we check anywhere to see if our purchases are registering as entries each week?

    Yay, I got an email, in my name, saying I'd won £50.  No sign of it in my Paypal account tho :(

    I think it shows up the next time you buy something with PayPal. I bought a couple of things with it yesterday and couldn't for the life of me work out why it was giving me some discounts on my purchases, and then late last night I got an email saying I'd won £25, and it all started to make sense! So I don't think you can just get the money - it has to be used towards another purchase.
