There's a big thread about this over on the GS board. People seem to be winning quite a bit.

About 1 out of 3 of my buttons wins something. I have won anything from $5.00 to $25.00. They must have invested a lot in this promo but it keeps me going into the store!

I have won about $45.00 in total. And yes, it keeps me going in! Plus, the buttons are pretty cute.

ETA: This thread reminded me to enter in the two I have for today, and I won another $10.00 certificate.

A lady told me her son won $500. He didn't even want the button but his mother insisted he take it and he won.

I've won 2-$5 gift certificates and one $10. I did hear one of the workers at JcPenney's say that she had a lady come in that had won $1000. They are fun and my kids love them too. They let us take a big handful on Black Friday but seem to only give out 1 or 2 now.

We have won $30 ( 3 $10 certificates) so far. I have about 7 more buttons to check, but you can only do two per day. All my buttons came from one trip- they just gave me a big handful.

I am buying curtain panels for my living room at the moment, so those certificates will come in handy!

I've won $55 so far in $5 and $10 certificates.

It must be costing JCP a bundle because there's no minimum purchase to redeem the certificates. And it's one certificate per transaction NOT per day so you can do a heck of a lot of "free" shopping in one trip. I've gotten DS free or nearly free socks, underwear, pajamas, and me some sexy undies. And with each redemption, I asked for more buttons.

Thanks JCP!!!

I totally forgot about the buttons I got today and I just checked - $10 for me!! Woo hoo, and I have 2 more to enter tomorrow!

I wonder how many buttons they decide to give out with each purchase? I only spent $14 on clearance items today and she gave me 4 buttons.

I have won $70 so far, all in $5 and $10 certificates. I have spent some when I went in to get more buttons.

Does anyone know if you can use more than one certificate on a purchase? I read the certificate and thought you couldn't but saw a lady at my JCP use a couple of certificates, but wasn't close enough to tell if she was doing multiple transactions or not.

From my experience... It depends in the cashier...some will allow use of more than 1 certificate some wont.... I appreciate the ones that allow it but don't fuss with the ones that don't.... The certificate clearly states one per transaction

I redeemed my $10 certificate today on a $10 scarft and got two more buttons. I won a $25 certificate on one of those!

I love this promotion. Between this and the free kids haircuts on Sundays, I'm there a lot lately.

Out of 5 buttons, I had 3 winners, (2) $10 gift cards and (1) $5.00 gift card, however I only received one of the three in my email.

I need to contact them and see where my other two are.

My mom got one button and won a $50 gift card, not too bad!

I was wondering if this came up for anyone else. I had 6 winners and never received the certificates for 2. Unfortunately, I haven't been keeping track very well (they tossed a big handful of buttons in my bag and I haven't kept track of which were the winners) so I'm not sure how to follow up on it.

For those that haven't received the coupons, when you got the email that you had won, did you click on the link to enter you name and address. AND do another word capture(hate those things!) Then within 24 hours or so you get another email with the coupon in there. If you have done that have you checked your spam folder. I haven't had any problems receiving mine.

They told me I could use more than one in a transaction IF they were all the same amount. So I ended up doing two transactions and using all my $5.00 certificates on one and my $10.00 certificates on the other.

I was allowed to do it today. BUT one was a transaction for me with my money and the other was a transaction for my mother, a Christmas present for one of my kiddos. Using her money. I asked the cashier if I could do that or would I have to come back and she said no, it wouldn't be a problem. My cashiers and the store has been wonderful with this promotion. Rudolf was strolling around the store on Saturday with a bucket. On the way out, I walked up to him(her) and asked if I could have a button. She gave me about 10. I doubt all the codes will be redeemed. I have bought what I want from there. May give a couple of certs to my DD to go get a scarf or something. DS came home from college and didn't bring home tshirts. I told him he could take a couple and got get some shirts. It is getting us in Penneys when we normally wouldn't go.
