Does ask really give you a free t-shirt if you get in the ask hall of fame?

So i got in the ask hall of fame for February. yay :D
and in the email i got it says i get a free ask.com t-shirt. I really don't want to give out my address.... and it says it can't be a PO box. why not? Why can't they send it to a PO box? My parents are concerned as well.
so is this some kind of scam?

Yep they sure do! (though delivery times can unfortunately vary) XD I am not sure why it can't be a PO box, but you can rest assured that there is one person who these addresses go to, we do not ever sell them or give them out they are kept strictly confidential

okay, so do i really have to give my address? why can't they send it to a PO box?
Report as

okay thx. :D:D:D
Report as
because they probably do not send it by way of regular mail. and ups / fed ex type delivery services will not deliver to a po box. If your parents work at an office have it sent to the office address.

overtaker, Congratulations on making the Hall of Fame!!
I rarely give out my address, for the same reasons your Parents and you have. Show them the answers to this question and let them know Deana is a Mod on the site.
If they need further convincing, ask who signed the Email. Only one person does that and it can be confirmed on top of Deana's confirmation. You won't regret it, the T Shirt is incredibly comfortable. Just remember to get a size up from your usual, as they tend to run small.
Congratulations, again!!!

What a fine idea, Lynnelynne!

Hi overtaker - I signed the email, and as the email said, we need a physical address because we ship via UPS - they (and other couriers) are not legally allowed to deliver to USPS boxes.
Report as
Ooops - I just realized I didn't mention this time (in the email) that we use UPS to ship. Sorry for the confusion!

Yessireebob, tis true. I received mine yesterday, from January HOF. Didn't really expect it; one woman said the other day she has been waiting since June, another a few months. Guess there are some unlucky ones out there.
Reason for no P.O. box is because shirt's delivered by courier. They don't deliver to mail boxes. No scam, rest assured. :)
P.S. Order on the large side.

What!!! I can't believe this is your first time in The Hall of Fame! Congratulations! IMHO, you deserved one months ago!
Report as
Aw, thank you so much. Yes, I still remember that huge compliment you gave me, some time back. I was very touched. I don't know that it was necessarily true, though. :)
Thanks for saying that. That's really nice. I'll tell you......I was shocked! I figured I would never make the HOF, with some of those funny, silly, humorously sarcastic answers I give! = )
Report as
But that is what makes you such a deserving recipient. I was so happy when I saw you had been honored ( of course I thought it was at least your 3rd win)!
Congratulations, again. You really do deserve it.
Report as
Aww, again, thanks for that, really. You are a sweetheart. Wow. : )
Report as
Craigsmom, you're welcome. I really mean it, I love reading your answers. You've taught me much and made me laugh even harder! ;-)
Report as
Oh wow. here you go again. Well, I am so glad!
You're amazing, Lynnelynne. Thank you, really. :) :) :) :) :) :)
Report as
I guess you won't be reading many of those answers any more, with the stricter guidelines. Let's just say, I'm getting more removals, of late. : [
Report as
It's so true. I can't tell you how many questions I've answered only to delete them before posting. Lol, I figure I might as well delete them myself before posting and then having them removed.
Keep on posting though, lots of times I get to read them before they go poof! That makes your answers even funnier!
Report as
Okay then. I don't plan to NOT post whatever pretty much comes to my mind. Maybe that's the prob. = )
I guess your timing must be great, because some of my answers don't seem to last long at all, with the new strictness.
Well, if you let your answers go through, maybe, just maybe, I will get to see some of yours, as well! :) Let a mod get 'em.
Thanks again for your lovely kindness, Lynnelynne. :)

What do you wonder about, specifically, dawnbright?
Report as
Every month, a panel of Ask employees, choose 100 people that have been a positive asset to Ask.Com.
I'm shocked you haven't been selected yet, but I'm sure it will happen soon.
Report as
@craigs mom - I thought it was like an inside joke - kinda like the 2 scoops of icecream i got from someone....a reward but not physical.

@Lynne - lol thank you for the kind words but I don't think I am even close to some of these people. Some are really good.
Report as
Oh, I see. lol
Report as
Congratulations, Dawn!!! I must have ESP, or something. I just saw the February Hall of Fame list, and if I'm not mistaken, there you were! Great job, enjoy the shirt. Make sure you order a size up, they tend to run small.

Yes but it took me about 6 months to get mine!
Sorry Ask but the shirt is very low quality! I just kept mine, didn't wear it because of the quality!
I still appreciate the shirt & will keep it always!
