About Reader's Digest Prizes: Official Sweepstakes
Does Reader's Digest really give away all that money? What happens if you win ... and how to avoid scams.
Absolutely! Our prize draws are fully compliant with Lottery and Gaming regulations in Australia and New Zealand. We are granted permit numbers for every state as required by law, and all major prize draws are conducted in the presence of an independent auditor at our Sydney headquarters. The draw dates are stipulated in the Official Rules and customers are always welcome to attend and share in the excitement.
Do not be fooled by dishonest imitators or shonky prize calls or text messages. Reader’s Digest NEVER asks winners for bank or credit card details to process prize payouts.
If it’s one of our major prizes – $10,000 or more – you will get a call from Janet, Prize Committee Director of Reader’s Digest, congratulating you on your win. You will also be sent our official documentation with details about your win. You can confirm the validity of your win by checking for your name on our website (www.readersdigest.co.nz/winners), or calling Reader’s Digest Customer Care 0800 400 060.
Will the winners' names be published?
All major prizewinners' names and postcodes will be printed in Reader's Digest magazine. Our major winners are featured on our website (www.readersdigest.co.nz/winners).
Our prize draws are a way to thank our loyal customers for supporting us as a company. Every entry has a fair and equal chance to win, so the more opportunities you respond to, the more chances you have of winning. We find that our customers love the opportunity to win and offering incredible prizes helps showcase our fabulous product range as well. Customers don’t have to buy anything to enter a draw, but because most people appreciate the chance to win, we throw in extra prize chances as a special bonus for shopping with us.
Our giveaways have been designed specifically to please you – our customer. By law, we are required to include the rules and operational dates of our draws on every promotional mailing. Only entries received before the closing date are eligible. All winners are randomly selected via our automated system which ensures complete impartiality and underlines the fact that all entries have a fair and equal chance of winning a big prize.
Every year, we come up with hundreds of THOUSANDS of dollars in new prizes for you to win. We draw winning entries every month, and our major prize draws take place in January each year. We also hold special giveaways throughout the year, with extra prizes ranging from computers to cars, from televisions to cash sums.

We guarantee that every single prize allocated is given away. As we said, to date we have handed out over $29,000,000 to thousands of lucky winners in our prize draws.
Most definitely! All Reader's Digest winners are officially notified in writing. Major prizewinners will receive a call from Janet, Prize Committee Director, Reader’s Digest.
We will issue a winners' list to you on request. For your copy, just send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to: Reader's Digest Winners' List GPO Box 5030 Sydney NSW 1010 Please be sure to include the name of the draw you are interested in (for example, the Magic Million Sweepstakes).
Both dates are correct, and each entry must be returned by the specified date in order to be eligible for a prize. Staggering return dates helps Reader's Digest manage the large number of entries received throughout the year. Each entry is an additional chance to win and each entry has an equal chance of winning.
Never! A prize draw always takes place on the day it has been specified. A brand new giveaway begins a few weeks before the old one closes, ensuring that nobody misses out on the chance to win. It is quite possible for people to receive entries into both the old and the new prize draws during this overlap period.
Your chances of winning are equally good whether you purchase a product or not. However, we do offer extra prizes for customers who say 'yes'. It's our way of rewarding those who purchase our products.
While you can enter the major prize draw – and have an equal chance of winning – by saying YES or NO, saying YES to our offer can bring you an extra chance to win in a special giveaway.
