Looks like all the tobacco ones have one by one dropped out. Not positive as the deep reason but most listed "recent events" gahhh

Interesting! What companies were those that were sponsoring them?

Camel: Unfortunately, due to unexpected technical issues with our promotion supplier, we must immediately suspend operation of this promotion until further notice.

Newport: Suspended until further notice. ((was on day 1 of their next sweep)

Grizzly: "Due to issues with the promotion supplier this sweep must be immediately suspended"

Interesting! I hadn't noticed, since i don't smoke. I wonder if any other sweeps are cancelling too, or how they will handle a drawing and deliver prizes in this new environment?

Most that I have seen have stated that they will fulfill wins after the pandemic is deemed 'over' ( let's hope they don't lose the winners lists) :lol:
Some have opted to mail gift cards in lieu of physical prizes as well.
