People tend to think I’m lucky. I don’t really think I’m that lucky, but I have won some great items in the past. There was one year in particular where I won some amazing prizes within a span of just few months. The funny thing is, I don’t enter many sweepstakes or contests, but for whatever reason, I got really lucky.
First up, I won a video game system. I was at work one day listening to the radio and at some point they announced that the 97th caller would win a Sega Dreamcast. So I called. I was totally expecting to hear a busy signal, but to my surprise, I actually got through. I was immediately placed on hold. I wasn’t sure what would happen next. Was I the 97th caller? I had no clue. Finally, someone picked up the phone, and started talking to me. The radio on my desk was still playing and I could hear the conversation through the radio. I was the winner! Yay! Unfortunately, the Sega Dreamcast video game system was a short lived game system that succumbed to competition by Sony’s PlayStation.
A few months later, I entered a contest to win a trip to Aruba. Of course I never in a million years thought I would win. But surprise, surprise, one day I got a call at work. I was told that I was one of the winners of the trip for two to Aruba. I took one of my co-workers along and we had a fabulous time!
Finally, about a month after that, I won a $500 gift certificate for eLuxury.com. eLuxury was a designer online shopping mall launched by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) so needless to say, they had a huge selection of Louis Vuitton merchandise. I purchased a really cute Louis Vuitton pochette purse which I love and still have to this day. Sadly eLuxury.com no longer exists. They closed back in 2009.
How about you? Have you ever had a lucky streak? What have you won?
