Have you ever actually heard of anyone winning all those silly contests they offer? I took my 2 year old to burger king for lunch and they had a spiderman contest advertised on the bag, where you could win 1 million paid over 30 years with no interest. Well they seem to have things like this all the time, but i've never heard of anyone actually winning all these prizes, have you?

McDonalds has the Monopoly game every year, but we don't win anything big. We usually get a lot of the instant win stuff, the free food and such, but nothing major like any of the bigger prizes. I am sure there's a way to look up winners, I just usually don't have the time to go searching, nor do I really care. I can get a few good meals out of it, but that's the most I've ever really won.

I have read about people winning those contests but I don't put too much faith in me being one of the winners ever. But I ahve never personally known anyone to win a big amount of money fro those types of contests. I have won $1000 once on a scratch lottery ticket when I lived in Illinois about 10 years ago. Wish i could win the million paid over 30 years, I wouldn't have a worry in the world, well at least money wise lol.

I dont know if we have BK in Philippines...but i know that Mcdonalds really give out the said prizes on their contests. any contest that has DTI permit means they really need to pay out/give out the said prizes for their contests.

No I have not ever heard of anyone actually winning any of those type contests. Just like Publisher's Clearing House, never had anyone in my state win that I know of. HGTV had a big dream house giveaway, but the night it actually happened the guy who won just so happened to be prepared to win. I thought it was a big put on. I just don't trust those gimmicky promotions, too many strings attatched.
