Have you ever won a contest/prizes online?

3 1
We all know that does tons of giveaway around this time. So, have you ever won a prize online? For me I've actually won twice (I earned the 3rd one) out of a several hundred giveaways I have entered myself in. (1)- Free pair of shoes on (I had to buy a pair of shoes first then they told me I've won their contest/giveaway so they credit me back 2 weeks later). (2)- An Apple iPad (3)- T-shirt

No, but my son & girlfriend seem to be always winning something without trying! I wonder if some email that was from nobody I knew & had a subject that was unrecognizable to me really contained my pot of gold & I deleted it!

I have been a Dealsplus member since April 2008 and I have won:
A mans watch,Ipod touch,Wii,XBOX360 and a Kindle.That is when they had monthly contest. So yes you can win here!
Online two years ago, VH1 and Cheeseburger in Paradise had a national contest for VH1's SAVE THE MUSIC, that I entered and won the grand prize! An autographed Jimmy Buffet acoustic guitar. It was cool, a big presantation of the guitar was made to me by VH1 and Cheeseburger in Paradise, and not to mention Cheeseburger in Paradise raised alot of money for a great cause. So I have been lucky online! keep enetering, you never know!

On here I have won a bag of crap. On twitter I won an mp3 player. On facebook I won a $15 Best buy gift card.

I've won a few Twitter contests from smaller retailers and startups

I've "won" several Bags of Crap off Woot, if you consider that "winning," but you still end up paying $8, so I think of it more as "was lucky enough to purchase" as opposed to "won"

I've never won anything from a giveaway

I've also been sent a few reward prizes from other websites for contribution quality, but I don't really consider that a contest either

Last yr while I was in Iraq I came home for 2 weeks & I got a notice from Best Buy I was a Grand prize winner to go to the Grammy's in LA, I called up my unit here in the states, but they said it was up to the unit in Iraq, and the awards were another 2 weeks away. I ended up going back to Iraq and my wife & a friend went to the Grammy's. I also won a Fender Strasicaster guitar from Wendy's worth $1700 in March of last yr & still have it today for my son. I've won a few other things like having my picture taken with the 40 greatest players from the MN twins baseball team in 2001. I won $1000 from a lotto pick, those are the best things I won so far in my life.
