Ever see those ads in small publications that ask you to enter your name and contact info to win a prize? It’s just a scam right? They’re just wanting to build their subscribers’ lists.
Well, I am here to tell you it can be legit. I WON A TRIP TO LAS VEGAS!!!!
I never enter these drawings because I reason that the slim chances of me winning are not worth my time in money. But I did anyway. Hawaii Parent Magazine is a local small magazine the “free” types you find in doctors’ offices. All I did was enter my name and email address on their online site, and ba-da-bing! I won!!! Then it got me thinking, I wonder how many people actually entered into the drawing. Afterall, it was a local contest.
So if you are at all like me and are skeptical about entering local contests, I say do it! Your chances of winning are much higher than entering a contest at a national level, like the ones you see on Coca-Cola or on TV.
I’d end my post there, but I assume you may want to know how the trip went. It was sooo much fun. Not a gambler myself, my overworked husband and I just wanted to sleep and eat (all free food)
So go for it! And if you happen to win a trip to Hawaii, be sure to look me up.
