The bike was the first big win. I think I had filled out a ballot with my mom after buying a certain brand of jeans. I still remember the call that came saying I'd won. I couldn't believe it!! Of course I had to answer a skill testing question to claim my prize, and they set up a special time for that second call. My question? What's the 13th letter of the alphabet. I quietly sang my ABCs in my head while counting on my fingers. It's the letter M, in case you're wondering. I will now never forget that little bit of trivia! I was one excited little girl. And my beautiful, cherry red 10-speed? Awesome!
Sadly my winning ways kind of waned over the years. Although I still score the occasional Twitter party win, the lottery is apparently not happening any time soon! But, I continue to enter contests, and I remain hopeful. Someone has to win, right?
As a KinderMom, I'm pretty excited to announce a new promotion from Kinder Canada, kicking off 2014 and celebrating the launch of this year's new toy collections. If you're feeling lucky, be sure to check out the Kinder® Crack’n Win® contest! They have over $2.4 million in instant prizes to be won and entering couldn't be easier! Just watch for specially-marked Kinder® Surprise® Classic and Pink products in stores. Here’s what they will look like:
Inside each specially-marked egg, you'll find a PIN code embossed on the toy and/or toy leaflet within the yellow capsule. Take that code and submit it at the Kinder® Canada Facebook Page (along with some additional information as required) and click “Check Your PIN.” Prizes include over 27,000 family movie passes and over 200,000 free Kinder® treats. Plus, one lucky Kinder® fan could drive away in a Fiat 500 POP, and 2 lucky Kinder® fans could win a family trip to Orlando! All entries must be received on or before 11:59:59 PM (ET) on July 31, 2014. Full rules and regulations are available here.
And best of all? Even if you don't win, you still get to eat delicious, nut-free chocolate and play with a cute toy. You really can't lose.
