Have you all tried: SD Clear Channel radio rewards sites daily combined point earnings - STAR 94.1 FM, VIP 93.3 FM, KOGO 600 AM... on Fat Wallet that site started by Get MY Point has 94.1, 93.3, and 600 all in one place!

FWIW, I just had the program ending email drop into my inbox time stamped at 9:02am this morning. Its a shame that they are shutting down another program. I never win anything from just entering my email each day. I sure hope that Star and 933 don't follow.
Edit: They have also added a trivia question to the site that gives you 1000 points for answering correctly about when the program will end. They really want to make sure people know about this.
Are they shutting down the rewards program, or merely changing the methods for entry? The instructions don't make this clear. It says a new format will be used for "all contests currently available." Do they mean the three contests that appear when you click on the link, or the ongoing list of "raffles"? As a long-time contester, I see some pitfalls for KOGO. First of all, none of the stations should call their contests "raffles." A raffle is essentially the same as a lottery. Under California law, only the California State Lottery may operate a lottery. All other lotteries except bingo games operated by charitable organizations, are prohibited by California's Penal Code 16. Additionally all contests and promotional puzzles and games must clearly and conspicuously disclose each of the following: All the rules, regulations, terms and conditions of the contest, and the date(s) upon which the contest will terminate, and upon which all prizes will be awarded. If KOGO is indeed bailing out on currently running contests, they could be in violation of law. I have no animosity towards them; I understand that times are tough, and I've noticed that their contest site has been shrinking weekly. It's their prerogative to terminate the rewards program. I'm sure Clear Channel has an attorney on retainer. He or she should be consulted about the correct and legal way to do this, because there are people just looking for an excuse to file a lawsuit. (Not me.)

As a long time doer of contests you must know that CC shut down US957, KGB, Rock 105 and 1360 in the past. They sent out a similar email at the time but at least were nice enough to let use transfer some of the points we had earned to the other surviving programs. Too bad they don't seem to be doing that this time around.

Posting contests with a definite ending date constitutes a binding contract. IMO, the correct way to handle this is to "age-out" existing contests by expiration date and not add any new ones. Philo, I'm fairly new to radio contesting; I mostly enter national sweepstakes, which are very tightly regulated. However, the same rules apply here. Because, let's face it, this is a form of gambling.
