2019... took a long break in summer and fall to deal with a family member’s illness and then passing, but still managed just over $500 for wins. I’m hoping 2020 is a better year... all around. Good luck RFDers!

Here is my list of wins for 2019!

Realized that all my wins were from Social Media, PIN codes or Instant wins this year, that's a first for me, although it seems it's due to not having the time to do most entries on a daily basis, but sneak in social media type entries while i have a quick moment here and there.

There are so many giveaways on Instagram, and i find it easy to enter when i am waiting for appointments, or have a few minutes to take a peek without taking up too much time.
The key is to follow friends who enter contests too, because most entries involve tagging 1-3 friends.
I have found i enjoy sharing my photos too and it is a great place to review products that you have received to test, for example, chickadvisor, etc.

Sometimes I put a ballot in before sharing a contest, sometimes I don't. Congratulations to all the secondary prize winners in the Mars Wrigley contest. I still have to put a ballot in on this one.

No worries, lots happening in 2020 and prob lots of fun contests too. Hopefully we'll all see some grand prize winners here soon. Happy contesting!

I entered on Twitter a picture of my daughter's big day getting her Learners driving permit.
I was contacted that they wanted to share the photo on the billboard at Yonge/Dundas Square. I live in BC so was not able to see it go live, and it was only up for a short window of time. I reached out to a couple fellow contesters in Toronto asking if they might be able to snag a photo of the billboard for me. The Contest Queen, Carolyn Wilman, put word out on her social media pages asking for help too.
Mini Wheats got back in touch with me and said they managed to have a staff member take the picture to share with us.
It was such a cool moment for my daughter, she was floored to think that halfway across the country she was on a billboard and that people were willing to connect with us and go out of their way to get a picture for us. The contest community is fabulous, and it wouldn't have happened without social media.
