No Top Prize Winners in Pick 'n Save Game
MILWAUKEE---Many Pick 'n Save shoppers who dutifully collected and pasted little Monopoly pieces in hopes of winning one of several grand prizes were disappointed when they found out nobody won the top prizes.
"It was kind of disheartening," says customer, Carmen Pine. "I will never play that game again."
The grocery retailer, Roundy's Supermarkets, Inc. offered the game with the top prize of a $250,000 new home. A new car and $50,000 in cash hooked shoppers into playing the game as well. Turns out, nobody won those prizes.
"The most I got was mainly a 30 cents off coupon," says customer, Tara Franzen.
Some upset shoppers sounded off on MilwaukeeConsumer.com.
"They go through the effort of opening them, putting them on their board but there are very few actual winning game pieces," says Jon Olsen who runs the website.
Roundy's released a response saying in part:
"The game is a game of odds, giving customers a chance to win. We are legally bound to distribute all of the game's tickets but we have no control over what happens to those tickets once customers receive them."
Even though 2/3 of the prizes went unclaimed, some shoppers got a thrill out of playing.
"It's a lot of fun to see what pieces you can get or what pieces you can collect," says customer, Nicole Paradowski.
The company wants feedback from customers as it decides whether or not to do the game next year.
