    Winzy Search and Win

    I just won a 25$ gift certificate and i already received the code for it, i checked to see if it was valid and it was. This website is fuckin easy and if you win its good shit too.

    scam... this website has google ads, and its just a flash game... i would think adobe and yahoo could make something better than that

    it is not in the better business bureaus website... not all companies are, just a point.
    its hosted on godaddy.com
    if you know anything about these guys, you know that they are second in line for hosting the most scam sites (enom.com is #1)
    The site has been up for nearly 4 years.. so that gives it a plus... however, in 05-07-2006, the business was in business for only 6 months..
    another site owned by winzy is iwon.com which has been up since 1999.. big plus on that one
    No criminal action has been taken on either site
    It seems that this site has two different addresses
    (iwon.com)
    1 Bridge Street
    Irvington, NY 10533
    US
    and
    (winzy)
    2513 E Charleston Road
    Suite #101
    Mountain View, California 94043
    United States

    the mountain view address shows that it is located in a building that supplies voip (suite 102) as well as computer sales (suite 103)
    but of course mountain view is aka silicon valley..

    the iwon address shows that as of 2007 it is an abandoned boat yard

    founder of winzy


    Ive found promotional codes on many 'deal' forums for this site.
    Although i dont think the $25 gc is worth the everloving amount of spam you will ultimately receive, the site is legit.


    btw, its 2 am and i got nothing better to do..

    Yeah the site doesn't even load for me. Even when I just go to the main page Winzy.com... I'm a bit skeptical on that.

    ah yes, but is google so desperate for your click that it'd give out $25 gift certificates? didn't think so.

    it probably is... Yahoo is still the most visited site (or search engine) theyre google's biggest rivals, so you never know, some people go to extreme lengths...
