I enter contests at sweeps advantage .com Over the last few years I've won: a Mediterranean cruise, a trip to new York (going this April), gift cards. a bike, gps, and just today a box of Godiva arrived via UPS. I enter almost every day - 10-15 mins at the most. Good luck everyone!

DH and I won our honeymoon to Antigua in a raffle at a bridal show where we held our reception. We were shocked to say the least. Then a year later we won an Apple Vacation from my former place of employment, we went to Mexico for 7-days. Then recently, on our SW flight to Vegas, DH won the seat raffle and ended up $64 richer before we even landed. Pretty sweet!!

That would be cozy. How many people can you fit in one of those suites? Could we book the room under "OMDD Winners of 2012"?

i'm going to go ahead and assume they haven't picked any winners since the Jan. 2nd winner. Because the alternative is that they have -- and I'm not one of the winners, and I don't like that alternative

That exact same thing happened to me and DH (well, he wasn't DH then) back in college at an Elton John concert!!! It was amazing!!!

Someone from the show came up to us and asked if we'd like to trade in our seats for front row. Told us we would just have to hand over our tickets bc they were going to give them away to people outside who didn't have any at all (sold out show).

I feel awful now bc I was not very nice to this guy. I thought he was trying to scam me for my tickets (yes, he had credentials, but I thought they were fake), and I made him walk with me to an usher, hand the front row tickets to the usher, and have her verify that I would actually be allowed to sit in the front with those and they weren't counterfeit. LOL. The guy thought I was NUTS I think. It was an amazing concert though!!

In hindsight, we probably should have done the same thing, haha. It was about halfway through running down the ramps of the stadium that we realized this might have been some huge set up and we could have been SOL. You have no idea the relief we had when they scanned our tickets to let us down onto the floor!

This thread makes me feel so much better about entering every day at work and secretly dreaming that I'll get a call.

I actually had a dream (night before last) that I got a call, I was in slow motion and couldn't get to the phone to answer before they hung up, and they didn't leave a message. I was yelling for someone to grab the phone, it's a 212 area code and caller id says Ventura! (how I could see that if I couldn't get TO the phone who knows lol) I was trying to call back as quickly as possible when they called again. That's when I woke up LOL. Sheesh.

Actually, quite a few of us who won OMDD last year were notified by FedEx that we had won instead of phone or email so you never know.
