Additionally, Amazon is not associated with the pop-up you see on your screen in any way, so do not waste your time trying to get the prize that does not even exist. Unfortunately, not all the users listen to our advice. Some of them still click the OK button out of curiosity. They get a chance to spin the wheel and get the prize, e.g. Amazon gift card. Do not bother doing this because you will not get anything.
