    Thank you, Craig. I don't mean to sound petty or come across as impatient. It's the best prize I've ever won and am so looking forward to upgrading my PC. It's long overdue (the upgrade that is).

    Totally understandable, usually I prod them, they go away and sort it, and if I don't hear back from you or them then I assume it's done and dusted.

    Can I just ask one other question? Is the prize being dispatched from the UK? Just so I can have a rough idea of when to expect it. Does the clock now set back to another 28 days? Thanks :)

    Another day gone by (almost). Another no show. It's just not gonna happen, is it? I feel really gutted about this. I bided my time. I've been patient. I waited the alotted 28 days and now I just feel like I'm being given the run around.

    I've won a few compeitions in the past and I've never had this issue before being awarded a prize.

    It's been suggested to me to contact the IPM (Institute of Promotional Marketing), but I really don't want it to have to come to this.

    Please, can I have some update again? And possibly a solid confirmation that this WILL be resolved?

    This may be a time to send Craig a message Via PM rather than relying on a forum post. :)

    HI Larelle,

    The card will be dispatched from Hong Kong but shipping usually only takes 3 days via DHL. In terms of dispatch I apologise for the delay however dispatch of the card is entirely in Palits hands. We have been actively chasing them and you will get your card... we have a long history of competition prizes being sent out from smaller items to full PCs and other than one occasion (when a manufacturer went into liquidation and we paid for prizes out of our own pocket) everyone has received the prizes they won.

    It will happen but as I say, Palit need to send it and we will continue to ask them to do so as quickly as possible.

    Thank you so very much for the clarification. It is much appreciated. The extra info has helped (ie: being made aware of where the item will be shipped from, etc). I'll allow extra time for arrival.

    I think it's on the way! I received a text from DHL today of a tracking number for a package from Taipei. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)))))

    good things come to people who wait. While it might take a little while, HH always holds true to its word.

    Yay! It arrived this morning. And I think I had been rather patient...it has been 54 days since the day of prize notification. But I am so, so happy. Thank you :)
