So my husband and I received a contest flyer from a dealership about 30 minutes away from us. It was one of those that if you scratched off the numbers and they matched the contest number then you won one of those prizes!! The prizes were $25K cash, $5K cash, up to $50, and 70 inch flat-screen TV!
So we scratched off the the three scratch off spaces and the last combination of numbers matched the contest numbers.....we won! So Im searching everywhere i see fine print to make sure you dont have to buy anything in order to claim a prize! and then I find it..."No Purchase Necessary "! SWEET!
I called the number it said to call after being a winner, so they end up making me an appt to go claim my prize. LOL So now at this point, Im pumped thinking we are going to walk away with something! So we pack up the kids and take a ride down to this dealership, get there and i get introduced to some survey taker. LOL he sits me down and asks what kind of car i have, how many miles it has, is it big wnough for my family...basically trying to set me up with a salesman in the dealership to try and sell me a car! Once he realized I wasnt trying to buy a car because, I just purchased a new car 2 years ago, he got back to my contest flyer! LOL He circled my "pin number" which we would be matching to a board of pin number next to their prizes. $25K and $5K plus the 70 in ch flat screen, I was excited! We matched the pin numbers and I won! ....$5! 5 dollars! ROFL! I was a little disappointed, but hey I walked away with 5 bucks! Cool huh? =]
