Wheel of Fortune Giving Even More Cash Away to Viewers

By March 15, 2009

Follow me on:

Wheel of Fortune really likes to get home viewers involved in the game, and give us the chance to win some money too. They're already running the 5K Every Day promo through June 6th. Now there's another way for you to score $5,000 by watching the show.

Wheel has teamed up with Valpak (you know, that envelope of coupons that somehow ends up in the recycle pile?) for a new promotion. If you receive one of the nearly 45 million Valpak envelopes on or after March 23rd that has a picture of Pat and Vanna on the front, rescue it from the recycle bin and open it up. Inside you'll find instructions to register for the contest, through wheelofvalpak.com. Don't bother trying the link just yet - it redirects to the official show site.

Once you register (with what I assume will be a unique code found inside the Valpak envelope), you'll get a Bonus Round puzzle solution. If your puzzle solution airs on the show during the week of April 20th 2009, you could win $5,000. There will be 20 winners in all, for a total of $100,000 given away.

Good luck!

Wheel of Fortune is awesome, more game shows should be this generous to it’s viewers. I know that Deal or No Deal and 1 vs. 100 used to have that every episodes one viewer could enter to win 10,000 dollars (and the syndicated version of DoND gives away 10,000 a week) but why hasn’t Jeopardy jumped on the home viewer sweepstakes band wagon.

The thing of it is, Wheel’s promotion actually worked, I never watched Wheel before I knew that they were giving away 5K every episodes and now I watch because I like the show (and to win, lol)
