‘$150 Piggly Wiggly Gift Card’ Facebook Survey-Scam

$150 Piggly Wiggly Gift Card
A Facebook scam fraudulently claims that Piggly Wiggly is giving away free $150 coupons to celebrate 100 years of excellence.


A Facebook survey-scam claims that American supermarket chain Piggly Wiggly is giving away free $150 coupons to everyone to celebrate 100 years of excellence. The scam is promoted by people who share the post.

Piggly Wiggly Gift Card survey

The purpose of the scam is to direct Facebook users to a website that contains a survey. The initial survey asks three questions:

  • 1/3: Have you ever shopped at Piggly Wiggly?
  • 2/3: Have you ever shopped at Piggly Wiggly with a Friend or a Family member?
  • 3/3: Are you satisfied by the services of Piggly Wiggly?

Once the survey is completed the web page will say “Congratulations! You won FREE $150 Coupon at Piggly Wiggly!” and insists that Facebook users click a share button to share the page and click a like button.

If you click the like button you will then be directed to another website (such as retailproductzone.com) that contains additional surveys. The surveys essentially never end.

The surveys are designed to phish information that people submit into them. They ask for your full name, email address, home address, and more. This information can be used for a variety of unknown purposes.

If you submit your information you can expect calls from telemarketers and scammers, junk mail at home, and email spam.

You will not win a $150 Piggly Wiggly gift card if you complete any of these surveys.

Piggly Wiggly is not associated with any of the websites or Facebook posts. This is a scam designed to gather information about you through the surveys. No prize will be rewarded for completing any of the surveys.

The scam can easily be debunked citing that Piggly Wiggly was founded on September 6, 1916 and that was over 100 years ago.

Facebook survey-scams like this are very common and follow the same procedures.

  • They are promoted through sharing links to the site.
  • They ask three questions and then directed you to an identical site that claims you won something.
  • Then they directed you to another site that contains never-ending surveys.

If you come across a Facebook post that says “Piggly Wiggly is giving away free $150 Coupon to Everyone to Celebrate 100 year of Excellence” make sure to let the person who shared it know that it is a scam so they can delete it and take safety precautions. Do not visit the website and do not complete any of the surveys.
