You know when you register for a contest and they always ask if you want to sign up fro the free newsletter or something similar.. do you think your odds lower if you say no?

They aren't supposed to, I'm pretty sure that would go against the Canadian contest laws. All participants must have equal chance at winning. For some contests you must sign up for the newsletter to be entered successfully, but in those cases its always explicitly indicated on the entry page. Otherwise it shouldn't influence the odds.

I checked my email and found an email saying I won a secondary prize of chocolate worth $100 from the Lindt contest! It was probably a redraw since the draw date was August 11. :)

Got a strange phone call today on my cell... 16 digit number and I didn't answer it. Does anyone have any experiences with contest people calling you multiple times, or do they fire off an email?

Some will attempt to call again, some will email you others will just move on to the next winner if it was a contest. It all depends on the rules and the sponsors preference.

I enter a lot of contests....lately probably 40-50 a day....dunno if that's the average for people in here or not. Some I enter for myself, some I enter friends and family into if I think they'd like the prize. If I hadn't just bought a computer I might have kept the iMac and tried it out, but couldn't hold off buying a new one on the chance that I'd win. :p I've kept most of the stuff I've won here....won a PS3 60Gb from Hershey, passes to the Dark Knight from Crush, gift card for Moxies, the iMac, and $1000 from Mars. Right now I'm entering more stuff for appliances and whatnot to put in a house when I buy one next year, or sell for the downpayment. :p


EDIT: On a side note, how many contests a day do you guys enter?
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.
