Contest Question



  • So I haven't had time to check my email at all, but I was going through my spam folder today and noticed an email from about 2 months ago. Apparently I won something awesome, but I didn't realize it until now :(

    I don't see an expiration date for claiming it anywhere, so…..Am I still able to claim the prize?
    Im guessing they are all out of the gift bags, but it would still be awesome if I could get the 12 months free.

  • I would definitely send a ticket in to www.funimation.com/support and let them know about this. Hopefully it hasn't expired. If it hasn't, then the tech team will do their best to make sure you get what they promised you.



  • …are we sure this is not a phishing scam email?...



  • I was thinking that at first too since it was in my spam folder, but it seems 100% real.



  • what is the @…...... email address? You don't need to post the first part of the email, but what is the second? List all emails on the email.

    For instance, post what the email accounts are, minus the "12345" part.
    12345@example.com

    If it is @funimation.com then it is likely real. I would suggest doing what Spaceman said and open up a ticket, in either case.



  • It was an "@funimation.com" email address, I opened up a "Other Issue" ticket on the support page. Thanks for the help SpacemanHardy and thegrandalliance!
