Due to the agonizing slowness of the internet here at the time of this writing, today will bring some good news. That's about it, after a long day of getting next-to-nothing done. I do believe this is satellite internet here, so it can be a bit temperamental. Some things didn't change. Still, I am happy to have access.
I do hope you've been enjoying the giveaways this week. I like to have a nice mix on the blog, as the odds always seem to be better with a variety. The blogger giveaways always have such unique and enticing prizes! It's hard to resist playing these, for sure.
I hope you are all in a winning mood!
Last week I was so surprised to see an email in my inbox, letting me know I am a grand prize winner in the Rockstar Energy Drink Sweeps, listed in the July 22 post, Win Prizes for a Day at the Beach! I had entered for the "Action" prize package, so was thrilled to know that my prize was a Rockstar beach cruiser bike, and a Rockstar longboard!
This was exciting news, as I have been wanting to win a bike for these past two biking seasons (counting the current, late-in-the-season one). Winning a Rockstar branded bike was twice the thrill! The longboard is something new for me to try. Since I am currently residing in more of a citified scenario, in my temporary camper home, I think it will be fun. My (adult) sons will surely get some use out of it, too.
I was somewhat surprised that they did send me an affidavit to sign and return. Generally, this isn't practiced for prizes under a $600 value, as it isn't required by law. Still, it was not an issue for me. I returned the affidavit, and am now anxiously awaiting delivery of my prize!
Thank you, Rockstar Energy Drink!
And in other stuff...
Though I have slowed down quite a bit in entering sweepstakes since I am in a temporary situation (after a tree fell on my house during a major storm), I still do love to play daily. Under normal circumstances, I play the sweeps I have listed here on SweepstakingDreams.com (scrolling back through previous posts, and getting daily entries in for sweeps that are still open), and several extra that I regularly post on Twitter. This may take a good two hours a day, at most, when the internet is cooperative. This generally results in weekly wins. The blogging part is the hardest part, and the part that takes the longest, but I do enjoy it immensely!
I hope to get back into a more permanent situation soon, and to get on a winning streak! Whether they be big or small, I love them all! Every win is a good win!
Sweepstakes are just such fun to play. I'd love to hear some of your winning stories in the comments!
