  • I won a thousand dollars in a radio call-in contest once. I could hardly believe it. I was speechless for a second, which isn't so great when you're on the radio. Then I just started laughing with tears in my eyes. I used the money to fence in the yard where I was living so my dogs could be outside by themselves.

  • The Mexico trip was part of a transit anniversary, I was in a hurry did not want to bother but said OK and forgot about it . I get a call later saying I was the grand prize winner, thought it was a joke and heard some people stuff the boxes to win, I was so upset over the media fall out I hate the spotlight. The sandwich you build yourself I just guessed the weight and won the entire place started clapping, I wanted to hide

  • My job had a Memorial Day picnic and they had a "quiz show" tournament which was a bunch of random pop culture questions complete with a score board and buzzers. The prize of $250 went to the winner. I won the tournament...lol.

  • Basketball tickets through a work contest, gift cards from some random click to enter while you place your order things online. The gift cards actually surprised me - I assumed those were all scams to sell your info to telemarketers and spammers. I keep one email just for online ordering, so I don't care if it gets spammed to death. Over the years I've had cards from $10-100 for Kohl's, Kroger, Dollar General and Sephora.

  • Nothing big and unless it's millions in the lottery I'm okay with that. I work for a radio station handling the giveaways. While there are some awesome prizes and the winnings are legit, the IRS will tax the hell out of you at the end of the year lol. It's almost not worth it to win a big trip or a car. You end up paying thousands in taxes, out of pocket.
