Yeah, last night was the cut off with today being the draw date. The Captchas were terrible. Half the time the verification didn't work. I found if you could get it down to one image and then click on it but before it could load another image hit Verify and it would allow you to submit the entry. Going the other way and waiting for another image caused it to reload in more than 90% of cases. Yeesh!

Hey everyone, it's been a really long time but I'm slowly getting back into it. :)

I noticed a trend lately with IG contests where you get an entry per friend you tag, so feel free to tag me all you want @KevinSouthgate7, and I'll tag you back with any contests I find.

Hmm, have struck out sending two tweets to Cottage Life for the tiny print Tealeaves contest (rules were printed sideways in a page margin, the page after the Editor's page)in their Winter issue. The link 404s: https://cottagelife.com/lookingfortoques

Thing is, the contest began in November and ends in January. Since I have not gotten a reply in return to my tweets, I guess the contest is pulled or someone in the tech area is not aware of the contest in the print edition.
2019-roll out the gold carpet!

Hey, after years of not winning anything, I finally won something!!! But, get this.....it had nothing to do with an internet contest. Lol

I went to a grocery store last week and bought some gift certificates for some stocking stuffer Christmas presents and the cashier gave me some ballots to fill out for a draw, the prize being a shopping cart full of groceries. I forgot all about it and then I got the call this morning that I'd won. I couldn't believe it! I went and brought the stuff home. Of course there was a lot of it that really wasn't for me but there was some for me, some for a good friend and her grand-children and some for the food bank. What a nice Christmas surprise!

Stoneleigh wines contest looks good BUT as much as this would make a nice meal, I do not like how sponsors think that Ontario consists of Toronto (and environs) alone. Hopefully there would be an option for people outside TO. In this case, there isn't. I have written to some of them in the past about discrepancies such as this and either got the cold shoulder or else the sorry we mean TO for Ontario response. Bah!

If someone wins a trip for 2 people can you just give that trip away for example to your mom and sister or does the person that wins it has to go on the trip.

Generally the answer is no.

It is best to read the rules before entering, as it may vary between contests.

Unless I hear from a contest by today/tomorrow (not holding my breath), this is my 2018 win list:

2x Dr Oetker pizza coupons
$20 Great Clips gift card
Valvoline Retro Tin Sign
$25 EB Games gift card
2x $10 Dairy Queen e-gift cards
GoPro Hero 6 Camera
Budweiser/Ruffles vintage cooler
$25 grocery gift card + free product coupon (Christie)

If it wasn't for that GoPro instant win from the Brisk contest, my win total for 2018 would be my absolutely worst year yet I think.

Lets hope 2019 is better for everyone!
