I Can't Believe I Won!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Do you enter blog giveaways? There are about a zillion out there at any given time. Some get thousands of entries and some get just a few. Your odds of winning are much better than you might think, and it only takes a minute or two to enter. I used to enter a lot of giveaways then for a while I stopped entering at all.

That is until recently, when I entered a giveaway I saw in an email alert from MomFuse. It was for a couple of prizes from Atari (remember those?!), Target and General Mills. Boy am I glad I did! Not only did I win a prize, but I won the grand prize - an Atari Flashback 2, several retro boxes of General Mills cereal, a T-Shirt and a Target gift card! Woo hoo!! I couldn't believe it when the box showed up at my door. As you can see, the kids were pretty excited too!

So, the point of this post is not to gloat...no, no, but to encourage you to enter a giveaway now and then. People really do win! And, to let you know that there are still chances win a prize like mine. You can enter the Great Game Giveaway here for a chance at one of 200 Atari Flashback 2 game systems and 100 Atari prize packs!

Thanks MomFuse, Target and General Mills!
