Wow I Won Something!!  - surprise

April 25, 2008 3:50pm CST
I do not talk to much about online money making ventures other than Mylot, because to be honest with you there are just not that many great programs. I have mylot and a few survey sites that I enjoy taking surveys for. I get checks in the mail sporadicly, mostly for like 5.00 to 10.00 nothing to write home about or think about quitting my day job. Sometimes I get a product to review at home and those pay a bit better and are fun. The companies I take surveys for will not only pay cash rewards but enter you into the weeks sweepstakes or drawing... Today my husband went out to check the mail and well, Blow me down and kiss my feet... I had a 50.00 check from Global Test Marketing for the mid April drawing. I was ecstatic LMAO I have never won anything. Once I won 7.00 on the lottery, LMAO. So my Husband says what are you going to use it for? I told him He was going to use it and buy that new faucet I want for the bathroom sink... LMAO he left grumbling and mumbling, cause he now knows what awaits him this weekend.

LOL Great to get a nice surprise like that - well at least it is for you , not so sure that hubby feels the same way! lol Nice to know that he is well trained , knows he is boss and not to argue! I found out that my nephew is well trained too when I phoned to ask what he wanted for an engagement and house warming present. He told me I didn't need to get them anything , they weren't expecting it - when I told him to shut up and tell me what they would like he said he would talk to his fiancee and ask what they wanted! lol Glad to see she had him well trained already! xxx

LMAO Boy he got trained early and fast, as taken me 28 years LMAO. But you know what I could be totally selfish with it and buy something frivolous, but no I am thinking about our home, and actually it will save him work in the long run. That faucet is old and wore out and it seems every other month he is having to screw with it because of a leak :)) The thing is I have not let him replace it because he wants to buy a walmart special that is cheap and ugly. Now I can combine what he would have paid for one and my 50.00 and buy an attractive nice faucet with out it cutting into the budget :)) right?

Wow! I bet that was a very nice surprise. I'm a member at GlobalTestMarket as well but never win anything at any of the sites I'm with. I did, however, cash in my points at that site and was only supposed to be for round 20 bucks. Well, someone goofed up big time on their end and I ended up with a $50 check in the mail instead. That was a nice surprise for me. Now if I could only win points or anything, I would be happy.

This happened last summer. I think it was taking too long to process and send me the check so they added to it. Still, though, an extra 30 bucks? I was like WOW!

My checks from GlobalTestMarket have always been for $50. I think that is what they are supposed to be when you cash in 1000 points. I have been with them for a long time and have cashed out around $200 so far. I have never won one of their drawing though. Good luck in the future.

Congrats on the win! I've been doing surveys with similar (and the same) sites but the ones i get are always the entry to the sweepstakes which i never win but the surveys are always entertaining to do

Well bu-llow me down too, that's one lucky angel whispering something on herself because she's ecstatic and won money.. I'm not that lucky enough when it comes to money, but I do win some rewards and give-aways but not in monetary denominations. Oh my, another work for poor hubby. But seriously, I would treat him something so he gets motivated by doing his job..

Raijin, I am not at all lucky myself.. In fact I do believe that old Murphy sleeps in bed with us.... I have hubby's treat right here if he is a good boy and puts a pretty new faucet in the bathroom :))) *wink*

Wow, Angel, this is the second nice surprise I am reading about a friend here. Both of these two made me happy for you people and myself too! Lucky you! :-) Now, I do understand the reaction of your husband, poor guy! This is called husband's syndrome that many husbands experience over the course of entire married life but a smile cures the problem! :-)

Wow! You are the first person I have ever heard of actually winning one of those. I have seen the drawings at them and such but had yet to hear of anyone actually winning. It's kind of nice to know that people do win them and it's not just a fake name that these companies put up. I would love to go out to the mail and get a surprise like that. I know how $50 would be used here and we could use it that's for sure. I think that's great. Congratulations on it

Well Global was one of the ones I was going to give up on. It seems like I haven't been qualifying for their surveys lately. I'll give them a try awhile longer just for the heck of it. Congratulations by the way, it sure must have been fun opening that envelope.

Sure was Whittby, I do not qualify for many myself, but I think you need to have several survey sites that pay well, to make them work even occasionally.

Hello HCpoirot, no I am content with the ones I do have, I spend most of my online time in mylot and really do not have time for anything else. Actually from some of my responders responses here I am wondering if it was a drawing at all, and actually my payout. I thought I had gotten my payout from them about 2 months ago, but I do have another survey site called global opinions. This 50.00 may just be my payout from global test market... the letter it self is rather vague, it just says april awards so I am assuming it was one of their drawings... LMAO At this point who really cares 50.00 is 50.00!

I use to belong to global testmarketing but gave up on them.LOL Yes it was nice getting that $50.00 but it took forever to get to that amount.

Howdy Terry, someone else indicated that 50.00 was their payout altogether, so now I am thinking hmmmm.... But I swear I thought I received my payout from them 2 months ago, and it was a 10.oo check. I never write things like that down... Oh well like I said 50.00 is 50.00
@paid2write (5202)

I would like a surprise like that! I also take surveys and I get paid for some of them, while others are for cash prizes. I have reached payout at one of them, but I have never been lucky enough to win a cash prize - so far. I only do surveys for two sites now and both have a mixture of paid surveys and cash prizes.

I only belong to a few of them. Mylot takes up most of my time, so I do not have time for to much else on line... But the surveys are fun, and I like the product reviews.
