Win $5,000 Watching Wheel of Fortune

By November 10, 2008

Follow me on:

Wheel of Fortune is celebrating its 5000th episode this season, and to celebrate they're going to give away $5,000 to viewers each and every day starting November 17th.

The giveaway is called 5K Every Day, and it begins on November 17th. The best part though is that it will last through June 6th, 2009, giving out $5,000 per episode, Monday through Friday plus Saturdays. They've also made it incredibly easy to win. All you have to do is register for a Spin ID number through the Wheel Watchers Club at WheelofFortune.com, and then watch the show. Each night one Spin ID number will be displayed during the show, and if matches yours, you win. To claim a prize, just head back to the Wheel of Fortune website and follow the instructions provided.

Now if only we could get these sweepstakes open to Canadian viewers ...

Question Carrie, I work nights and I can’t always watch Wheel of Fortune, are the winning Spin ID numbers posted anywhere so I can check to see if I’m a winner?

Will you perhaps post them?

Hi Phyllis — you’ll have to contact someone from Wheel I’m afraid. We’re not directly affiliated with the show. Good luck!

I can’t remember my wheel watcher number. Tonight (2-3-14), my initials came up so I need to find a place to check my number.

Please let me know where to do this since I only have 24 hours to find out.

(18) Carrie says:

Hi George — we’re not directly affiliated with the show or the sweepstakes. Head over to WheelOfFortune.com and see if you can find a contact number there. I’d advise calling rather than sending an e-mail since it’s much quicker. Good luck!

(21) joannelecznar says:

I believe I won the 5k wheel watchers game March 12, 2014, I lost my ID#, so I logged on to wheel of fortune, also forgot my password, a new password was entered So now my claim number is changed and I have a new ID# and I did not win with the new number, please let me know if I truly won with the old ID# I am totally confused.

(22) doyna says:

So my spin id was displayed at the end of the show, and when I went online to claim or check, it said “sorry you’re not a winner” Why did I not win?
