My clients sponsor a ton of contests and sweepstakes and I usually write the rules for those bad boys with a lot of help & direction *cough* headaches and stress *cough* from legal.
Needless to say, I sign up for EVERYTHING. (I'm clearly not eligible for stuff my company sponsors, I'm talking about everything else.) I figure I have to be someone's prototype for something. I've never won any national sweepstakes or contests, but I've won a great deal of stuff locally.
Stuff I've won lately
- Tickets to the Bears/Packers game (from a raffle at work)
- Tickets to another random Bears game (from a spelling contest at McFadden's)
- An iPod (from a vendor at work)
- A $100 Best Buy Gift Card (Summer outing raffle at work)
- A jar of Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme (from Nerd Girl)
- The American Journey of Barack Obama (from BGG)
- Jeanette Jenkins workout videos (From BGG too)
Stuff I would like to win right now
- A trip to NYC, Vegas, the Bahamas, hell anywhere that's not Chicago
- Diamonds from A Diamond is Forever (I NEVER win their sweepstakes)
- And countless other Shape, Self and Essence magazine contest and sweepstakes that I've entered.
So, have you ever won anything? Are you in the running to win something right now?
