Everything arrived well by mail today : Melody Gardot's live DVD, her live Blu-Ray and a postcard signed by Georges, the host of my favourite musical radio show.

I have again tonight! Yay! Same radio show, but this time for a CD and book relating Bob Dylan's early career.

No, I haven't.
I forgot to answer this poll, thanks for bumping it up again.

I haven't won anything even though I have a book that purports to say how to win such things!

I agree with Sierra's opinion about them just wanting something from you...just give them an Email you don't care about, give them minimal information, a phone number you never answer as if they are legitimate, they must notify you by a "US post green card, return receipt method" so they know you got the information---as usually there is a window by which you must respond to claim your prize and if you don't they can give it to the next winner chosen, etc etc.

So be aware, even with Email and phones, they have to have some way of confirming they notified you and they don't provide proof of that---not to say they won't also send you notification that way---but remember there is nothing lost in just waiting for the official letter saying you've won.

[I do modify that for the Publisher's Clearing House one, just that one---they have that flashy van with the giant check arrive suddenly at your home----that is notification legally as they contacted you and though its not happened to me, I'm certain you have to sign for something...]

So Sierra, take a chance! Enter a few more---just be careful what you tell them and enter only the ones you really want what they are offering----winning a year's supply of Sonic Milkshakes is not going to make your figure keep its current shapely form, so that is a win that is not a win!

I may think of some more to say......

I love entering sweepstakes, yeah they data mine your info, but a majority of services do so I'm ok with it. I understand that there are people who aren't and I can respect that.

Yes, I have!
I won a 4-day vacation at the Westin Kauai in Hawaii. It was a contest on a local radio station where you had to be a certain number caller, and then identify three sounds.

Yeah, it was great. My parents took me on a 10-day tour of the islands when I was 14, so this was the second time I'd been. Good thing too - I had promised my wife I'd take her to Hawaii someday lol

One scary thing though, about a week after we were there (my wife and I), hurricane Iniki hit Kauai really hard, and pretty much destroyed the hotel we had been staying in. Timing is everything, I guess.

Last time was my fifth overall, on November 24, I've been one of the 10 lucky people who won The Rolling Stones' DVD Havana Moon and Dominic Lamblin's book Satisfaction. Again, it happened in my favourite musical radio show. Everything arrived by mail 4 days later.

I wont $5 Amazon gift card from one of my apps. Also, I won Beats by Dre headphones last week at work. Nice as we listen to a lot of music, right? And on Saturday I won $10 from work. Whoop whoop!

PS - My coworkers say I'm very lucky, but I just think it's a numbers game. The more you enter or do it, the more you're bound to win.

Won $25 restaurant.com gift card. (Really not an award though if you know how those work).
Won $10 from work. And they've been giving me points to cash in for gift cards.
