I started entering contests in 2002 as a joke with my sister. It was the Cadbury Contest (2002) where you took a picture of yourself with a Cadbury Egg and if you seen your picture posted, you had aboiut 24 hours (or 72, I forget) to reply and you would win $1000. I won that and shared it with my sister. That hooked me on contesting! I don't enter that many contests, and when I do, I make sure they are reputable companies so I don't get spam emails. So far I have been lucky! It takes me approx 15-20 minutes per day, in total, to enter all my daily contests. Some days I don't enter anything. Hit and Miss. I like the instant win contests best! I have won LOTS of things. This is just a very small example of stuff I have won. I have also won CD's, DVD's, MP3 Players, CD Players, Movie Tickets, Games etc.......

*After I won a few contests, I started keeping a list for my own reference of things won, the value and the date.


Here are some of the highlights of what I have won.......

-$1000 cash from Cadbury

I haven't won a single thing from contests yet.

I was curious, how do you guys get contacted for wins? Is it by phone or by email, or snail mail?

Eh since people are posting their lifetime wins I guess I'll put mine down since I started around the first pepsi xbox 360 contest (1.5 years ago I guess that was). I was stoked when I won that one, since my brother had already won a 360 from muchmusic and I stopped entering the contest, but a week later I checked my email during class and it said I had won (a redraw for sure). That's when I seriously started getting into contesting.

Now let's see if I remember it all.

Scaletrix Race Car set - Shoptvcanada (2005)

Xbox 360 - Pepsi wineveryhour (2005)

Xbox 360 - Muchmusic (2005) - Helped my brother win that one, they called his cell and I told him what to say to win, I still have the recording on my computer from the episode.

King Kong for PS2 - Don't remember the sponsor (2005)

Case of Brisk Iced Tea - Brisk (2006)

4 NFL hats - Snickers Instant Win contest (2006)

Gameboy Micro - Humpty Dumpty (2006)

UTStarcom PPC-6700 Cellphone - Microsoft (2006)

Nokia Cellphone - Sponsor? (2006)

Xbox 360 - Wineveryhour (2006)

World Trade Center DVD - Tribute.ca (2007)

DVD Prize Pack - Alliance Atlantis (2007)

If I remember more I'll edit this post.

No major wins (nothing over 600ish dollars). But I love winning electronics, the UTStarcom win was funny because I was out looking for a new cellphone when I got the call that I had won a phone, lol great timing there.
