This is no complain t or adverse comment. Kindly let me know the sweepstakes date if any in October 2009.
 
I have also been participating in the so called 'sweepstakes' for the past two years. I have received a very important 'DmDocuRelease ' envelope which I am planning to send tomorrow.This envelope also holds a very expensive "CARROT" before the "MULE" (the carrot being a set of DVDs of the National Parks of the World, and the MULE, of course is --MYSELF). I wonder whether I should say 'YES' to this offer.
As usual, like all the 24 and odd months, a flyer for a ToyotaCorolla Altis car is also included.
Perhaps RD need not have indulged in such cheap gimmicks just for the marketing of their publications which are undoubtedly of a very high quality.

there i won any prizes or cars
 
i fully agree with the comments/complaints made by those people above.i am reciving the sweepstakes documents from last three year.in each letter it is assured that your name has been included in final stage of so called sweepstakes.Now i began to doubt that these sweepstake prizes even exits.If at all the prizes do exits why the names of the winner are not published in the leading newspaper.It is very shame full that a leading publisher like reader digest is resorting to such lower mentality tactis to sell their books and products.i have spent thousand of rupees in your books.you peopls are only selling your books by making false promises.in near future somebody may go to the court againest such fradulent business practices.
 
Dear Sir,

I am still waiting for my Rs.26, 00, 000.00 award eagerly.Please inform me immediately
