I have. Nothing life changing but now and they I do get a prize that makes my day, or a week.. Last prize was a box (24) of beer since I dont drink beer my husband was happy. Other things I have won: a hamper of tools, tickets for Formula 1 (all expences paid), a coffee maker together with cups and coffe, BBQ, Few toys for my son and 2 books. I am sure there is few more but I cant recall them all. The most valuable was a trip to 3 Europian countries (this was when I lived in Europe) I was too small so my mother went in my place. How about you? CAre to share?

I play the lottery (scratch tickets) evry once in a while. I think at the most I've won $20. Years ago when I was a teenager (since I'm 48 that is alot of years ago) I won the "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" record album in a radio contest. The type you have to call in and be the right caller. The record was from the movie that Peter Frampton , the Bee Gees and other stars made using Beatles songs.

In my many years entering contests and playing games online I've won a lot of things. Cash in the amounts of $5 up to $50. Jeans, tools, radios, phones, cleanign supplies, and other things. So I've had my share of winning here online. The most value of a prize I've won was a $3,000 scratch off lottery ticket many years ago. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Well, I don't have much experience of buying the lottery or else, so I didn't win anything yet. Though I did have won a chance to have another bottle of Coca Cola when I bought one coca cola. Andy

I have 14 mtn dew or pepsi buy one get one free lids, wonder if they will let me buy a six pack get a six pack free? the guys at my dh's work do not keep their caps so..... we have a ton of coca cola rewards caps too but my computer connection is too slow to load the numbers in, and they only let you do 10 a day - bummer. my dd won a bike 2 years ago, our son was dieing at that time and my dh unemployed, it was a very difficult Christmas season for us - well when dd's name was called (giveaway is city wide to include all children, no restrictions) she just beamed and exclaimed our family is so fortunate. I loved that she was able to see that.

About 3 years ago I won several thousand with 3 others in a work lottery syndicate in NZ. After paying off my Visa account, I brought mobile phones, clothing, stereos, etc for my 3 daughters and wife. I did not really get anything, except a mid priced Seiko Protek watch on ebay, for about half the price in NZ. The money was spent within a month...

wow better something than nothing I always say. well you did get something for your self you payed off your visa so that is good. And I am sure that you use the stereo. And you made your family happy that is a win as well.

Yes true, it is better to win rather than nothing and I won a scholarship prize for Auckland University study fees (for maori students) many years ago but declined it. We passed the fees on to the 2nd place getter who's family was more needy, since my parents could afford to support and pay my fees...

No... I never win anything... But then again... I don't buy lottery tickets or gamble. But last week I discovered the lotto website on the Internet and decided to join. I had not played lotto for years... and when I saw that the first prize on Thursday was 10 million and the first prize on Saturday was 20 million... I thought it was an omen. I could see myself with 30 million in my pocket by Sunday. So I bought a ticket for each one. I was wrong... Did not win a cent. Lost $4.50. laugh.

I have only won once in a competition, that was years ago back in the UK. I won a mountain bike, and as I had no use for it, luckily there was a cash option, so I took that. Only won a few dollars on the lottery, nothing spectacular, but I will keep my hope's up. LOL.

It is nice that they gave you another option as today they hardly ever do that its the prize or nothing I remember about 10 years ago some people in sydney (my cousins ex-in-laws) won a house and a very nice one as well in a very rich area and they were not able to sell it for 10 years. it was very expencive to live in that house.

A couple weeks ago I won $13 in my bowling league for tying for first with the highest score after a game. I bowled a 214 game and had a 46 handicap so my total was 260 which tied someone else for that game. I have won some money in a college football pool as well but those were the only times I have won anything. Some of my friends win all the time. I am so jealous of them. Lol

dont be jealous you know what I bet wining something by pure luck and earning the win its not the same. When you win by playing sport its by your own doing.

I've never won anything really big before, although I have entered some contests. I've won a few small things, like a rose bush and I've gotten hockey tickets a couple of times. The hockey tickets were great because I love hockey. I would like to win some money or a car or something. That would be great.

Its great when you get something you like so you dont feel like money and time wasted (like I did on F1 man I am glad I only went for 1 day instead of all 4 it was soooooooo boring)

I went to a food fair in Philadelphia once and won a magnum of champagne. They put the stub of everybod's admission ticket in a fishbowl and chose a winner about half way through the afternoon. I actually wasn't the first ticket pulled but the first person had left and it was a condition that the winner had to be still at the fair. I gave the champagne to someone for a Christmas present. Winning was a pleasant little surprisethat made my day.

do you play the lottery. do you know the joke. A man always prayed to god: god let me win money on loto and week after week year after year. God was fed up and one day said to him : why dont you go play the lottery than come and pray to me.

I have won a couple of things. I won a doll at a supermarket drawing one time. I also have won a few dollars on scratch off lottery tickets. I also won a contest (with the help of others in the department) at work that paid $25.00 for our department selling more candy bars than others in the region. I would like to know of online contests that I could enter. I have heard people say that they win in sweepstakes,but I dont know a good site.

Man dont you wish you spend more that day. My friend had a funny story. In my country they had this promotion on this washing powder. They would go to a house and ask if they use it and if they had it at home they would win big prize like a washing machine or a huge pack of the powder. So her sister in law lived in the same building as the mother in law and the mother in law washed the clothes. So when they knocked on her door she tried to explain that her mother in law washes the clothes out of the goodnes of their heart they gave her 10 kg bag.
