  • Absolutely you got ripped off plain and simple. They promised GAG members that amount of cash in Amazon gift cards for placing those positions in the contest and you did not onky that but won. You not only did you work your ass off by constantly reentering while no one else even took the time to you also won by default so either way they owe you're being cheated.

    There's no way in hell that they can say it's only second place worthy when there's no competetion! You at least deserve first place and in my opinion not only do you deserve first I believe you deserve first, second, and third because they said you can submit 3 entries and that is exactly what you did you really deserve $175 and they cut you $125 short 😒

      I just thought that you should see what the public has to say and our opinions on this if you already haven't of course. It just makes the most the most sense to bring this to your attention I mean you were the qa after all.

      An opinion, comment/reply, or action would be much obliged. Thanks in advance.

  • I ran a poetry contest with first second and third prizes, and had one entrant with 3 poems, and I felt honer bound to give him all three prizes, so I paid out... I think that G@G should do the same.

  • That's so lame of them. Technically they saved money since nobody else entered but you, so they could have just as well given you the 100 bucks. Especially since you made 3 videos too. Not your fault nobody else entered lol. Gag is so stingy with their money.
    But yeah, at least you got 50 bucks. Better than nothing I guess.

      Lol he should be getting the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize money!

  • They should have given you the $100. It's not like it's any more money than they were originally willing to pay out to people because they were willing to give away $175, right, but just to three different people? Meh, it's not your fault no one else wanted to enter, you did the work, you deserve the reward.

      I know especially the last video it took a lot of work for me to make that cartoon.

  • Gag is a bit funny when it comes to contests at times.
    I remember for a contest they said they would choose a winner from each gender.
    They chose a woman to win , and made a guy with a mediore take win by default because he was the only participant.
    There were tons of women that participated , in that case they should have just cut the gender crap and announced two winners despite the sex.

    I think you should have gotten first because you made the effort , however it's a good thing they didn't throw this contest out due to not enough entries , then you would have gotten nothing.
    So , at least be happy you have something.

    • 2mo

      Wow I see I didn't know that about the other contest and yeah I guess your right.

  • I wish I had the time to finish the video I made for this. I began filming but unfortunately life got in the way.

    I guess I get why they didn't dish out the 100 dollar prize because you were the only entry and it seemed like they were testing the waters, and it isn't much of a contest if only one person enters so they likely didn't want to bite the bullet and take the loss.

      Even if it was 3 it probably would have been 25 for everybody or only 50 for one person XD lol. Like this site owner is Turkish and I am pretty sure he is a millionaire so he can def afford $100 not to mention I am pretty sure amazon website sponsors them and vice versa so they just hand out the gift cards.

  • I would say you got screwed. That $100 should have been yours!

    • 2mo

      Yeah, so I totally understand you wanting the $100 gift card because that is listed as first place. However... you were the only place. There was no competition to push you to do even better, though I know you did try hard on the videos you did submit already.

    • 2mo

      Yeah!

  • Yeah you definitely have the right to be, personally I think you should've gotten all three, I mean they were intending to spend that much anyway. Even if they didn't want to give you all the money, the very least they could've done was give you first place.

    I dunno, at least you got something, I could really use an Amazon card lol

If you can nag them until you get your money then do that but I wouldn't be too worried about it if I were you. At least you got money, if they were gonna be real dicks about it then they wouldn't give you anything

      Just keep busting their chops and see if they cough up the dough. They've had a lot of bad comments lately regarding their poor business practices.
