The Wheel of Fortune Wheel Watchers Club is a program that offers points for playing nightly bonus puzzles as well as a sweepstakes offering up to $10,000 per weeknight for viewers of the show.

How to Sign Up for the Wheel Watchers Club

It's easy to become a member of the Wheel Watchers Club. Simply register online at the official site (and you can even register with your Facebook account if you want to). The club is open to U.S. residents only, 13 years of age or older. You can only have one account per person, and per e-mail address.

Once you register you'll be assigned a unique "SPIN ID" number. SPIN stands for Special Prize Identification Number, and you'll use this number to claim any prizes that you win by watching the show.

Collecting Points

Every night on Wheel of Fortune there's a bonus puzzle played. After the show, log in to the Wheel Watchers Club main page and complete the bonus round solution. You'll get ten points every time you do that. Collect these points and redeem them for rewards, such as electronics and gift cards.

Winning Prizes

You can also win $5,000 or $10,000 every weeknight using your SPIN ID. During each show, one SPIN ID number is shown. If that number matches yours, head over to the Did My SPIN ID Win? page to verify the number. If they do indeed match you win $5,000.

Wheel Watcher Club members who also hold a Sony Card VISA will win $10,000 in this promotion, at least during the 2013-14 season.

For more info on this promotion, visit the 5K Every Day minisite.

Sometimes other promos are won, such as trip giveaways prize giveaways. These are normally tied to the SPIN IDs just like the cash prizes are, so keep watching the show for these opportunities.

Pay Attention to the Rules

Make sure you read all of the rules and restrictions on both the Wheel Watchers Club and the Sony Card before signing up. It would be horribly disappointing to have your SPIN ID aired only to find out that you're ineligible for the prize!

Good luck!
