I didn't have to pay anything - I would contact the people at Sweet. They are BIG on customer satisfaction.

It's too bad they shipped via UPS...they are the WORST for brokerage and duty fees. Most other shipping companies probably would have been a couple bucks, if anything at all.

I have gotten to the point that I ask how it is being shipped and if it is ups I decline the prize unless it is big or something I really want because the ups fees are always so high

Was this a prize from the US? I hadn't noticed that Shweet had anything other than Canadian prizes.

That really sucks.

Another month come and gone with no wins. At least April started off on the right foot. Our office entered the 91.7 GiantFM free lunch friday draw and we won! We had the lunch yesterday. The food came from Country Corner Market in Port Colborne and it was pretty good.

Congrats to all the recent winners too!
