Also, thanks for pointing out the snowblower contest @shoppingguy but we are in a condo so no use for a snowblower - I'd rather someone else win who could actually use it/wants it/needs it!
That is awesome, glad it turned out well!
Best of luck to all, happy contesting 😉

Some people got lucky during the holidays, some got lucky after the new years, some got lucky on the holidays and on new years. There are some who prob still need a win, but I hear ya, I'm in that boat and it's not fun lol. Especially now that I'm doing dailies, but nothing too fast, I remember when I first started doing dailies it took 2-3 months to win something from it. Usually it's a decent prize though, sometimes it's just ok. All good. We can't choose what we win, we can just participate and realize there are always bigger things going on so all in all, there's gotta be something. Hopefully I still get a surprise this month, but if not, I can skip the 4 week February and wait until March for something good, but I won't like it lol

- talking like I got used to not winning as much during this whole covid fiasco lol

Curious how things will go with mail in entries for contests since Canada Post is so backlogged because of the holidays/COVID...

I've mostly given up on NPE, without any sort of confirmation I feel like they never show up or just get discarded lol.

You seem to have a fairly large $ amount of wins, are NPE worth the effort?

Well the 15th has passed, and it seems I gotta get on the horse again and do a run. As long as I'm not winning more this year to last, at least let me win some things I can use or may need. lol. Hopefully it works out, glad to see lots of new winners in the new year. Hopefully my luck can reboot itself.

Wished NPE was like Becels contest where they had a dashboard confirming your entry. Although not a winner here Slightly Smiling Face

I usually try to mail it in beginning of contest so at least I know it' should get there in time.

Received my scratch card in the mail today for this contest but it ended on January 5th :(

Sucks that the NPE had to go all the way to NB when it was an Alberta only contest - better odds of winning the bigger prizes too.

I did instantly win a 6" sandwich though...

Those who won the Haul Hard Holiday contests on IG from No Frills (there were a few of us I believe) - I got my Mondelay chocolate and Ritz prizes today via Purolator. Hope yours arrived as well.
