I won a Canon Ixus 100IS from a Yahoo! raffle in my country. I'm thinking of selling it instead because I wanted to upgrade my phone. Is it okey to sell a raffle prize? Should I sell it expensive because it have a limited design doodle. It cost around 482 dollars without the doodles.

Yes I don't see anything wrong with selling it. Congradulations to you. Especially if your not going to use it I am sure some one would want to buy a nice camera like that. How do you win raffles from Yahoo?

Thank you! I think someone would love to have a limited edition camera and buy it. Yup, I live in the Philippines and our Yahoo! mainpage have a Purple Hunt activity that is so exciting. We answer questions and get a raffle ticket for a certain gadget.

If I were you, I wouldn't sell it. Its a rare chance to win some cool stuffs from a raffle promo like you. Digital cameras are quite better than cellphone cameras when it comes to quality and clarity. My cellphone has a camera but I don't use it, I still rely on my digital camera. Not unless I have too much for something, maybe I would sell it.

Yup. Actually I'm still torn if I'll keep my digital camera. Its too rare and exquisite. It have a limited edition purple design that is doodled by artists. When I already have it, maybe I'll just toss a coin and bet for head lol!

Wow! You are so lucky! I am not so lucky at raffles but I always say to myself that if I do win and I am not going to use the item that I won, I will probably just sell it. If it has a limited design doodle, I think it is okay to sell it in a higher price.

I just won twice. My first price is a spaghetti package from our school christmas promo. And then, a Canon Ixus 100IS from Yahoo! Philippines. Actually, Im fond of joining contest like this because of the cool prizes. Thanks for the idea.

Wow that is a nice point and shoot camera...12 megapixels. Well if you are not into photography or maybe you have a camera that you are happy with it, there is nothing wrong with selling it. You own it now and you can do anything you want with it. Go get a new phone then.

Thanks for sharing. I'm also planning to buy myself a Sony T700 if I will sell the camera in a good price. I always wanted Sony Cybershot models but Im still a student so I cant buy myself one at the time. But with this prize, maybe I can buy my dream cam soon :)

For me it's okey to sell it.
