@Rosibal for the NBA All Star - did you submit an email entry or actually use your Air Miles? I keep writing in by email but never know if it's actually taken as a submission. Just wanted to know :) OF course congrats on your awesome wins and everyone for sharing - I have yet to win a trip! Hopefully for 2018!

Neither - it was thru a basketball online trivia hour but the contest had glitches and therefore decided to have a draw and I was the winner!

Any Quebec residents here? I won a contest that included 5 coupons for free bread but valid only in Quebec. I’d be happy to mail them to someone who could use them. Expire October

Happy New Year!!! I took a break from contesting almost the entire month of December. It just got too crazy busy and something had to give. Come to think of it, I did not enter contests all February, March and most of April either due to breaking finger joints in my left hand. Ironically I was on a trip I won from here when that happened. (wry grin).

Here's my 2017 wins:

March - won a trip for 2 (7 nights) to the Dominican Republic through Virgin Radio (taken May with 38 other winners) - valued $2,900
June - 150 Air Miles from Goodyear - value $20.25
June - $20 Chapters gift card from HGTV
June - 4,000 Shoppers Optimum points
July - $250 pre-paid Visa gift card from Anew Traveller (saving for trip next year)
July - 500 Disney rewards points (I use these to enter their trip contests)

Hopefully 2018 will keep on the tradition of winning a trip a year since I started contesting in 2012. I am hoping for a nice trip win somewhere for the entire family in 2018. The second-half of 2017 was a depressing dismal year for our family as my Mom passed away in June. We could not get motivated to do much, let alone even taken some day trips as a family during the summer months. In retrospect I realize we might have benefited from some counselling but it's not something you think of when you actually need it.

2012 - trip for 2 to Boston from CHFI
2013 - family trip to Blue Mountain Resort from Toronto4Kids
2014 - actually, none. But 3 free day trips to premiere of LEGO movie for 4 people, 4 Wild Water Kingdom passes and 4 ride-all-day/admission CNE passes
2015 - Fallsview Waterpark 1 night for 4 people (Toronto4Kids)
2015 - family 3-night trip to Darien Lake (hotel/park passes/food) (Toronto Star)
2016 - family trip to Moncton (Family's Big Ticket Summer Concert)
2016 - trip for 2 to LA for the 2017 NHL All-Star (Toronto Star) taken in Jan/Feb 2018. Where I broke my fingers.. lol
2017 - trip for 2 to Dominican Republic

HUGE thank you to everyone in this community! Wishing everyone best of luck and happiness in the new year!

I had a Karma Win - I won a bag of dog food for the Petsmart contest I posted ARV $25. Didn't contest much in 2017.

Yesterday I received an email from the GreatClips contest saying I've won a 7-day XBox One Game Pass. Woo Hoo....but no XBox to play on

Has anyone won a GC from the Loblaws Bahamas contest (not the Maui one)? I won two instant wins of $100 each and answered the STQ but they never followed up with me on email and now I had placed a follow up call to PC and have called again with no reply yet!
I did receive my $100 Bahamas' visa gift card a few weeks ago, I too only got the onscreen winner notification where I think I filled something out (maybe just the STQ) but not a separate email and I didn't have to send any id in I don't think.

Hope it works out for you.
