On the wheel has anyone ever won a SP water bottle or T-shirt?????

Saturday, May 18, 2013

I copied this from SP:

As with any health and fitness program, your chance of success at SparkPeople go up with your use of the program. In addition to logging in we also wanted to add some fun to SparkPoints by adding the SparkPoints Fun wheel at the upper right of the page.

You’ll typically receive between 1 and 5 points, but on other days you may receive bonus points and on some days even win free prizes like t-shirts and water bottles. emoticon

Points: Random, based on results of spinning the wheel
Maximum: Random, based on the wheel
Points for Previous Dates? No – you can only spin the wheel for today’s date.

    I think the wheel numbers change depending on the time of the day in your time zone. I've noticed if I spin like 3-6 pm - the "busy times" when everyone else is busy logging in after school, after work, after dinner etc., the wheel number seem to be small options, as well as spinning in the busy times of the morning, like 5-8 am etc? I haven't just tracked it out but that's my gut feeling is that when I spin during a non-busy time (like middle of the night or before the crack of dawn, or mid-dy long before 2-3 pm), I tend to get 20 or 25, or I'll win SparkGoodie points - 50 or 100, I think I've won as much as 1,000 SparkGoodie points. On those, I just bank 'em and then send smaller SparkGoodies to people who comment on my Friend Feed and "share the wealth"..... non of the really big point items in the SparkGoody redemption center really seem like items I'd want in real life, or I'd feel guilty "buying" the goody for myself. I'm sure it's some retarded self-sabatoge feature in my brain, but oh well...I just share those points. And no, I've never won a tshirt or dvd in the spin wheel...

    I won an exercise DVD on the Spark Wheel once, and I have often hit 20 points on the wheel

    I get bummed when I see other people getting such high numbers on their spins when there is nothing bigger than a 7 on my wheel. I often wonder why my wheel only has low numbers on it.

    I've been on SPARK for 4 years, active most of that time. I've won goodie points, but never won anything tangible. Haven't heard anyone say they've won anything, either, until you posted this blog. Hadn't really thought about it before.

    I won a workout dvd (that I haven't been able to use - maybe one day I will) but I've gotten plenty of 10, 20, or 25 points and 100-1,000 sparkgoodie points.

From what I've seen, it seems like the more you use the program the better the chance of getting the higher points, but I'm not sure about the real prizes. I've seen people who aren't active say they usually get 1-5 points, whereas those who are far more active get the higher points. When I was using the website to track everything I got higher points more often than I do now that I only do some things.

It's possible that the wheel is set up that the more effort a person puts in on the website the better CHANCE of prizes (ie it shows up on the wheel) then it's just a matter of happening to land that one.

    I've never won anything on SP (well, extra Goodie points), but reading some of your replies, I guess people do sometimes win something. With all the millions of people who belong to SP, our chances are probably similar to winning the lottery.

    I've thought for a long time that somehow SP keeps track of how many points you earn over all, on a day in day out basis. It helps give you high point values on the wheel. (Learned that one day when a friend and I realized we didn't have the same numbers on the log in wheel).
I have earned a SP Coach Jen Exercise DVD on the log in wheel.

    I have never won any product from spinning the emoticon - nor have I ever "heard" of anyone winning such prizes.

For years I didn't even realize that there was a emoticon . emoticon I believe it was the way I came into SP that kept me in the dark about the emoticon .

Even after "life with the emoticon ", once I didn't realize that 500 points were for me to choose a Goodie for myself, so I deleted the message of the win! emoticon I am so gifted, don't you know? emoticon

I am happy with the additional daily points the emoticon affords me.

God bless!
