Has anyone else had to fill out a W-9 before they gave you your points.

TODAY. Just got 'required' in email on win today. (never required before) Talked with SYWR and they say it is Sears. Talked to cust serv @ Sears.. Both say have to write sweeps@searshc.com! I filled out W-9 (with fear of having SS# on site), BUT STILL NO REWARDS POSTED! Gave up and emailed them. This is a mess!

so, does that mean it has to be done with every win? I didn't trust the site security the first time I gave them my information, I really wouldn't have to do it every time.

I never did. Also, I won a $190 food processor and it was never brought up.

Brenda I think they don't make you fill one out until you hit a certain amount or get close to that amount, I'm not sure, my mother in law who is a CPA thought that this was the same as winning discounts and the points wouldn't have to be turned in, but I've heard differently from others. This email said that if I didn't fill one out I wouldn't get these points.

I did it the first time I ever won a sweeps, but not again. I called up and asked if I had to do it every time and was told that I didn't have to, my information was on file.

Is that why there are so many closed sweepstakes marked "pending"?

I think so Ellen, only 2 of them are mine though I filled it out yesterday and my points haven't been added yet.

I am waiting for 2 different Rewards Points prizes. I reluctantly submitted my W9 info a few days ago, so I'm hoping the points will show up soon. Also, emailing sweeps@searshc.com yielded absolutely no response whatsoever, at least for me. I wonder why they choose to ignore customers emails and questions? That's bad business.

I got mine late yesterday. Never got a reply or call from SYWR people. Don't like putting my SS # anywhere. Did you do the W-9 too? Wondering if they are making everyone. Lady in Service Center said it was by state rules, but don't know. Do you?

No I don't I wish they would explain things better.
