Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Is it really true that foreigners cannot personally claim the prize in case they win?

Do we have to ask our Taiwanese friends to claim the prize for us?

I'm interested to find out the experience of other expats here. [img]images/smiles/icon_confused.gif[/img]

First, you'll never win the grand prize.
noone ever does.
Second, you usually won't win more than $200 and if you're lucky, $1000, which you can claim at most local banks. Bring your ARC or passport. There's tax on prizes over a certain amount. A friend won $10k once, but had to pay 20%.
I collected these for almost ten years, a mass of receipts in a drawer, then, arranging them carefully in order by last digit, then, just unfolding them and clipping them together. Now, I just leave them at the counter of 7-11, etc. Can't be bothered anymore...I'm just not lucky.

fools!
I won 2800 once. but you have to wait two weeks after the drawing, and then take it to the bank. that's right, you do need a passport or arc.

unless you win the 200 prize, which you can just use as a gift certificate at 7-11

How long can you keep the receipts for? ie is there an expiry date? I have about a years worth that I haven't bothered to check yet, plus they're all mixed together...:<Are most of these now useless 'cause I've had them too long?

Yes foreigners can submit receipts and get money. I have been keeping receipts for 5 years and I win quite often (The most was $1800). I have won $1000 a few times and loads of $200. They do expire you can clain the current two month period and the previous period but no further back. I don't now about the two week waiting period I have never encountered that.

Yep. The tax office is saying the 25th on its website -- but only in Chinese.
