NPE? As in no purchase entry? If so, it was not an NPE
Actually, it was both. Every AM earned at participating retailers gave you 1 entry into the contest. PLUS select credit card holders automatically received 5 entries. If you clicked on the "learn more" and entered your AM # you received another 5. Plus you could send them a 50-word essay on why you need a cruise and receive 10 entries - allowed up to 4 essays totalling 40 entries.

Ohh, or did you mean your win was not through NPE? Whoops - sorry. I thought you meant the contest had no NPE entries.

Just won my first significant contest today!!!

Thanks vilmark for posting!

Quick question for all the veteran contest people out there. The prize is basically for a trip for two in Canada, so I'll be travelling with my wife, but we also have a 2 year old child we would love to bring with us. We would of course be willing to cover the additional expense, but just wondering if anyone has had any experience playing around with these types of prizes and how I would go about doing this...

Just ask. The worst they would say is no. We won a trip for only 4 adults 18+ years ago but wanted to take our children instead and they were willing to make modifications so that the kids could go. We have also extended our trip out of our own pocket with no problems. You won't know till you ask. Congrats and have a great time!

Yes, that is the one. You don't have to pick the correct matching coins - it just popped up on my first coin flip.

My experience... sponsors have always been very accommodating. Adding days/people (at our cost) requests have never been turned down. As long as there's no minimum age mentioned in the rules, I'm sure they'll accommodate you. Congrats!

I'd just ask a neighbor if they could look after the kid while you're away.

Or if you have parents or in-laws that can babysit, that's an option too!

Actually, just take him with you. He will always wonder why you abandoned him on this trip.

I just started regularly entering contests again this month, and it's already been going really well.

I won a Kitchen Aid Mixer yesterday in the Food Network Eh or Nay Contest. Huge thanks to sherlockmandango for posting it HERE.

I got to pick up 10 packages of pillows from Leon's yesterday, worth $1000. I went crazy on the NPE of THIS CONTEST. A massive thanks to ladyb. I'm giving some to family and probably donating the rest to charity. I don't know if I even consider this a contest win, since every NPE was guaranteed to win, lol.

I just filled out the final paperwork for a digital camera that I won from a Fuji Twitter Party. I also won a beanie from Lastman's Bad Boy on Twitter, and I also got a Nature Valley prize pack from Twitter this month.

Last week, I was a daily prize winner on IG in the Drumstick #OwnTheCone photo contest, posted HERE. Thank you so much to MommaMac for posting it! I feel like there's not that many people entering, and with the daily prizes, if you enter a random pic every day you probably have really good chances of winning.

I'd win almost nothing without RFD. It's not just finding new contests, but being motivated by others, and reading so much advice over the last couple years that has really helped me a lot. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Yeah, I was surprised that they're actually nice. They're not completely memory foam, but made with memory foam pellets. I really like them.
