One (1) single size SNICKERS® Bar (2.07 oz)

I've been playing this one daily for about a week or so and this is the first prize I've won. What's funny is that I didn't even know they were giving out small prizes like this. I was just playing for the trip.

Funtasia Ultimate Experience Competition

One set of Ultimate Armbands

The good news: This is a cool prize for my kids as it allows them to ride on anything at the park for free for up to 4 hours. The bad news: It's for a place in Ireland. Not sure how this happened. Either I didn't read the fine print or they didn't state the location in the contest. If you live in Drogheda, Ireland, let me know before Jan 8th and I will forward the winning email to you.

Blockbuster $25,000 Movie Magic Giveaway

One night movie rental

I don't use the Redbox or Blockbuster rental machines so I always give these codes away. I like the idea of renting movies at the machines but it's so much easier to download movies or use Netflix. If you need a code just ask me and I will email you one.

Ben Bridge $100,000 Wedding of the Century sweepstakes

Congratulations! You are one of the weekly winners for a $25 Ben Bridge Jeweler gift card

This is a great example of why you occasionally have to check your spam folder when entering sweepstakes. It was just sitting there waiting for me to find it. They are going to mail me a gift card. I believe this store is a little pricey so I may not be able to use it for anything but we will see.

Advance Auto Parts

Congratulations – you just scored $50 in Hotel Cash!

At first I thought this may not be a very good prize but it actually might be usable. Checking the available hotels in my area, it looks like the cheapest rooms are in the $79 range. So I'm basically getting a hotel room for only $29 plus tax. Might be good for a night out with the wife or an overnight trip to somewhere fun.

Bounty's Creative Crafts Contest

A coupon redeemable for a free 12-Pack of Bounty

This was a daily prize for entering into a craft contest. You were required to submit a picture of a craft project you had done. It's a great example that even though you would like to win the grand prize, sometimes the other prizes in a contest are a nice perk.

  • Panama Jack ladies beach cruiser
  • Panama Jack mens beach cruiser
  • Panama Jack shorepoint wheeled backpack
  • Panama Jack beach tote
  • Panama Jack visor (PJ13 and PJ63 - 2 of each)
  • Panama Jack sunglasses (2 mens, 2 womens)

I was emailed about this win and they requested my phone number in a reply. They called me the next day to go over the paperwork required and told me they would have it here before Christmas. I was totally impressed as most prizes take weeks to get to your home. 

UPDATE: Finally received the last of this prize pack today. Turns out that it included 2 sets of bikes and 2 sets of bags. This equals 1 item for each member of the family, pretty cool!

    Think Products

    5 Think Thin Bars. Another prize I was not notified about. It makes it really hard to tell where I won it from. They look like really good bars though and I would recommend them.

    My Blog Spark

    4 bottles of Seventh Generation dish soap, Stone baking dish, misc cleaning products.

    This was a total surprise. I had no notification that I had won but I later learned it was from a blog giveaway. The stone baking dish is very nice and heavy and the dish soap will last several months. Blogs are great for these types of prizes.

    Robitussin Instant Win & Sweepstakes

    Congrats, you won a free Robitussin® hat!

     This is my 3rd win from the Robitussin contest. I have already received the umbrella and blanket and they are very nice. The blanket is a sport version that comes with a cool strap to hold on to. They are both green in color so I have a feeling the hat will be green as well.

    1 free movie ticket up to $12

    The cool thing about this movie ticket is that it is good at almost any movie theater including Regal. It's also spendable like cash. You just present your printout to the cashier and they take up to $12 off the ticket price. I love prizes that we can actually use or save us money.

    JC Penny Wrapt Sweepstakes

    A WRAPT gift bag and a $500 jcpenney Gift Card!

    This is my best win so far since I starting sweeping full time. I don't know what will be in the gift bag but the gift card is awesome. I plan on taking my family on a shopping spree which is very rare for us. Even the kids are excited about this one.
