Question to anyone else who has ever won a trip...Will I be responsible for the $350 or so in airport taxes and fees or is that covered by iCoke? Also, do they usually put you up in decent hotels?
I won a trip to the people choice awards a couple years back from now dead excite.com and cbs. They flew us first class 75% of the time. Flew 4 flights and one was in the back because fc was sold out for that plane. And stayed at the Beverly Hilton and had to pay the taxes on the hotel and any extra costs like movies and phone calls and parking for our rental car ($25 a day).But you should know that . Taxes for our 5 night stay $325 us. But that is why they give you 500 or 1000 spending money. Only thing is because I won the trip from a American company they had a cheque for $500 at the hotel for us. And because I'm Canadian and was from out of state. I couldn't cash the cheque at a bank and had to wait until I got back to Canada. I even went to a money mart but they wouldn't cash it because the company wasn't in the phone book. It was a sub company of excite and didn't have entry in the phone book . Crazy, so I had to put everything on my credit card until I got back home. Then we got to the hotel on Sat and the awards where Sunday and CBS was suppose to fedex the tickets to the awards to the hotel and they didn't. And our contact number was a Monday to Friday number. So we didn't get to goto the awards. So on Monday at 9:00 am we phoned our contact person at excite. And with in a hour we got a phone call from CBS NYNY head office and they said they would fly us down again for the grammys. So two weeks in LA for the price of one win!!!

Contests usually fly you coach and it's usually your cost to get to an major gateway airport. But it all depends on the sponsor and rules. Just ask your contact person.

Congrads on your win. I also enter that contest but I think only once. Say hi to Jerry for me :)

Alright, I won a 50$ iTunes gift card from the TD 'tell your friends' contest. No notification call or email, just a release form arriving registered mail out of the blue.

Not a huge win, but it has reinvigorated my urge to contest! I was starting to flag, after not winning anything since October..

From the anythingbutzen.ca contest, I've apparently won what the text of this e-mail says:

Hi Steve,

Congrats on the prize. Here are the details for Prize Pack 4:
Digital Head Buds
Headphone Splitter
USB 256MB Jump Drive

Total: $102.98



You are still qualified to win the grand prize. Good luck!

Your prize will be sent shortly.


"Shortly" means 4-6 weeks, but I guess that's not bad. We'll see.

PS I just received all four of my caffeinenow/eprize prizes today, so although they take the full 10 weeks to deliver, they are legitimate. This should put to rest all of the debate on the multiple caffeinenow/eprize contests.
