“Talk about getting money in the mail. Wow my Valpak envelope was extra generous this time. Among those great coupons was a check for $100.00. It didn't quite sink in at first but when it did WOW!

    • You’re very welcome! So glad it came in handy.

  2. I do not receive a Valpack envelope at my house, so how can I have any chance of receiving a $100 check?

    • Eould like to enter Value Pac. Instant 100.$ einner contest THANK YOU

  3. My grandmother was about to throw the ValPak away. Good thing I stopped her because inside was a check for $100 dollars. It for sure came at the perfect time. Thank you for making Christmas for my son possible.


    • Hi Shana – What a great story! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for all of the fantastic coupons!! Not only do I make good use of them, but I give some out to friends as well. What a great idea!! Thanks again!

  5. I live in Omaha, NE and got a $100 check in my envelope of coupons this week! I was shocked! I never even know Valpak did this promotion. It came at the perfect time, too, because I have a $3200 car repair bill this week. THANK YOU!

  6. It was awesome to receive a check for $100.00. I couldn’t believe it at first but when I realized it was for real it made my day!! Thank you!

  7. What an excellent promotion!! You made my day and you certainly nailed your target! Keep up the great work, I think very highly of your brand anytime I see it.

  8. How can I cash the check, my bank will not cash it?

    • We apologize for the inconvenience. You should be able to deposit or cash your check at your local bank branch. You may have them call us if they’d like confirmation. If you continue to have trouble please us at email us at

  9. someday I will get one of these checks

  10. I have never received a valpak thru the mail. How can I start?

    • Hi Marcia, your local Valpak office mails based on specific carrier routes. You may not be in a route they are currently mailing. You can request to have your address added to the mailing list. Please email with your complete mailing address and it will be submitted.

  11. I thought it was another bogus claim designed to get me to open the envelope and see what they were selling. I did and saw the “no-strings attached” on the inside and looked it over to be sure there wasn’t a catch. Holy Mackrel – it was a real $100 check. Just for opening the Valpak and looking.
    Thank you very much Valpak!

    • You are very welcome – have a great day!

  12. I Always enjoy when valpak coupons arrive! I can usually use several before they expire. I recieved my valpak envelope today. And the envelope was already opened. I assumed damage from transport or carrier. Until I saw the front of the envelope. LOOK INSIDE You could be a $100 INSTANT WINNER. Some one opened my valpak looking for a check! And if they got one, I will have no way of knowing! My neighborhood is usually very quiet, I have never had a problem with opened mail before. And I would hope that no postal worker would be trying to advance their pocketbook with theft. Or with a federal crime such as mail tampering. I hope no body else has had this problem in their neighborhoods. Best wishes to all this holiday season. ☃

  13. great surprise THANKS YOU

  14. can this check be deposited via mobil bank deposit? thanks

    • Absolutely! Treat it as any other normal check you would receive. Congrats!

  15. I won $100! check was in my Valpak envelope!! Such a blessing…Thank you Valpak!

  16. Thank you so much! I always look through by Valpak as it always has a least one coupon I can use.

  17. This is a scam. No bank in Omaha would cash and the bank kept my check to report fraud

    • Hi Tammi,
      We can assure that these checks are real and have had no prior issue with other Instant Winners being able to cash the check in Omaha. We’d like to make it right. Could you let us know the contact information for your bank? We can then try to contact them to resolve the matter.

      • This same issue happened when trying to deposit. My bank would not accept the check. Attempted mobile deposit, which appeared to work initially, but the deposit did not go through.

  18. Wells Fargo, 4707 S 96th St, Omaha, NE 68127

    • Thanks for sending us the information. We were able to contact the bank. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we have some great news for you! We’d like to reissue the check, but made out in your name. Please email and give us your full name and mailing address.

  19. I sometimes open your envelope and sometimes not. Last week I did. What a pleasant surprise. I sat on the check for a week or so thinking it was some promo that was not what it appeared to be. It appears not so, deposited it a few days ago no problem. Valpak is a well known company (I’m local to you). You can tell your advertisers I will NEVER, EVER, EVER not open your mailing again. Thanks

    • That makes us VERY, VERY, VERY happy to hear! Congratulations!!!

  20. I had to call my sister in fort Collins since we have only lived in Evans for about 3 months to see if this was real when she checked her Valpak she found just coupons and she assured me it was real and said congratulations Thank You so much its like a Happy Mothers Day gift.

  39. Scam! Attempted to mobile deposit the check, but my bank would not accept. Received a notification that the check was not valid/real! I frequently use Valpak coupons and look forward to them in the mail. Disappointing to say the least!

    • Hi Troy, I can assure you this is not a scam. The bank not cashing it is definitely a problem. Please contact us immediately
