I just had to go to my apt building's office to pick up a package - I assumed it was a freebie (they can't fit most in my apartment mail box - I have to go to office to pick them up all the time!) and it was a small pinata that I apparently won from the Nestle Crunch Hit it to Win it! It's my first prize, so I'm proud!

In the last 3 weeks I have won a $900 bestbuy giftcard, a $300 prepaid mastercard and a $800 sears giftcard. I have received them all but the sears card so far.

Nope we are being totally selfish. With the Bestbuy gift card we put it towards a 47inch flatscreen TV. We spent the prepaid Mastercard on miscellaneous expenses and are planning on using the Sears for a Wii and a surround sound system for the new TV. I don't even want to think about Christmas right now.

Amber it sounds like you've got your own Christmas covered. Wii's are awesome and you will love it, especialy on the big TV. We do at our house. May I ask what contests you won those big gc's on? A friend of mine won a trip to London last week. I was so happy for her but I'm ready to win myself!

The Bestbuy was from a Miller beer one. The prepaid Mastercard from a DIY and the sears was from a Nascar sweepsakes.

I won $200.00 from a survey draw at the end of November. Today I won an I-Pod Shuffle in a scratch-off from one of my survey companies.

Yippee!!!!

My husband said he could get use to the service we recieved. This is my first blog but have been reading others for a long time. People tell me that they thought the sweeps were all frauds put on by companies, and I was the first person they knew that won this big. I can only say just keep applying....

It's been a while since I have won something but this is what I can remember. A $20 gift card to the GAP, a Publix gift card (don't remember how much), $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble, $1000 over a year ago online, and a large Gatorade cooler over the phone. All of these were won over a year ago.

I won two things in my life:
1. I filled out an application in a mall to win a car, and won an alarm system for my house.
2. I won a night stay at a Timeshare in Vegas.

On Friday I received a UPS package with a congratulations card from Marlboro and a Sansa 4GB MP3/Video player. I'm guessing it was from their last contest where you had to vote for the best unheard artist.

Woohoo!

I received e-mail word I had won two tickets to see Michael W. Smith and Stephen Curtis Chapman when they pass thru my territory in April on the United Tour from hearitfirst.com .

Thanks Marie in Chicago for the post. I have wanted to see these two for years.

Heads up for General Mills cereal special marked boxes that say 1-10 boxes has a card (Discover Gift Card) inside, we found ours this morning on the "inside" bottom of the box, not in the bag with the cereal. Won $5!
