I haven't been contesting as much lately so I'm really surprised to have received 3 wins this week :

1) Sportsnet 590 Vtech bottom of the Ninth memory challenge weekly prize winner. I must have received this one in an email and clicked through as I don't see it posted here. I think I played the game once. The contest is still going until Sept 20th ( https://memory.vtechtrivia.com/)
a VTech Wireless Monitoring System with Cordless Phone and Open/Closed and Door Sensors (VC7151-109), VTech Wireless HD Monitor with 5" Touch Screen and 1 Wi-Fi Pan, Tilt and Zoom Camera and a VTech Smartwatch DX2 (as determined in the sole discretion of the Contest Sponsors). Total approximate retail value of each Secondary Prize is $539.97 CDN.
2) A $50 gift card in the Flip the Lip Mac's contest. 2018-05-01-mac-cus-convenience-stores-i ... l-2116795/ Thanks Ishfish and all the code posters
3) Aukey Canada 3rd anniversary contest on Facebook. Again wasn't posted here just found it on my news feed. This is the prize list https://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... ign=buffer

Only win #2 has been confirmed with a reply so far

I may have to start investing more time in this again.

Won Canada 150 concert tickets but may be unable to claim them as you have to go in person to do so. I was hoping they would just mail me the tix as they wanted my mailing address. I had picked a concert in Toronto as I was going to give the tickets away to a relative. There were no concerts in Thunder Bay. There seldom ever is in nationwide contests. I hope this works out or else I'll have to forfeit...

The last time I won a couple years back, they allowed this. Waiting to hear back from them. Would be a shame if I have to forfeit...

Looks like they are going to arrange something so my sister can pick up the tickets. They were to be hers anyway as a thank you for the stuff she has done for me over the past few weeks with me being in the hospital and all. I owe her a lot...

So sorry to hear about your hospital stay and wishing you a speedy recovery. You are a very thoughtful brother and I hope your sister enjoys the concert!

Thanks for posting toguy! I also won a secondary prize in the Monster "Salted Caramel Giveaway". I'm pretty new to contesting so I'm pretty excited.

Mugs, tea, books by Vanessa Greene & pillow

I enter a lot of blogs that host book sweeps or amazon gift card sweeps (or the rare kindle) they are listed constantly in the newsletters (I think I personally have 20 BUT about 10 expired yesterday....its hard to keep track of these as you end up signing up for 35 authors newsltters at a time and I have one email addy dedicated JUST for the authors and it still takes me about an hour or more to slug thru reading all the emails (quite a few authors also will give away a gift card just for subscribing but you also have to read them and check for your name ..love google and its filters)

I stopped doing those author contests, very difficult to get off their newsletters, and a book + box of chocolates or something just isn't enough of a draw for me for the amount of time required.

I got another surprise win from the gate, but really, I only entered because the movie reminded me of a nursery rhyme. I really don't know what to do with the 2 promo t-shirts, cell phone cases and posters.

I tried to follow up directly where I located the number of the bell media number that called me right after 9am on Tuesday, but they said I didn't win anything. Emailed one more location, seems strange, but I recall someone else got a call, no message and never followed up on it and they never called back. Sucks, cuz the call woke me up, but I got a good 45 minutes in after before i got up lol.

But since Thursday, I've taken a break. Wish the weather was a little better. I found myself routinely doing the dailies, and I rarely win on those. Seems like I'm up in the morning and will do a run. Will try to get back into it Monday. Not that many wins for the initial time to put in, but contesting is like running, just a hobby, hoping you get some supplies to keep going, but at times you just want to sit down and that's that. Not too many wins, and not too many wins of stuff that will keep me going in the race. Time to get some fresh air.
