Several times a week I receive offers for free dinners and wanted to know how many people on Mylot would go to the free dinner. The dinner is free for two people and food can vary depending on which location you select and this particular offer is good at Marie Calender's or Mimi's Cafe. You have to sit through a seminar and have 5 different date choice that are different at each restaurant and the seminars are in different cities, so can decide how far you want to drive. I am not going, as hate pushy people and they don't like to hear no. The food won't be free, if I have to sit for hours listening to somebody tell me why I need to spend money for whatever they are selling now. I wanted to know how many other people receive these letters every week?

I do get time sharing offers; however, they can't even tempt me with dinner, so they rarely try that offer. I did get an offer for four Disneyland Tickets and my husband was surprised when I turned it down. Tickets are almost $100 now, so yes it would have been a nice day to get away; however, the traffic was the reason I turned it down.

I did one of those a few years ago. Wasn't too bad. You listened to the sales pitch (it was a medical thing) then a decent meal. You have to sort of be vague and act like you were interested and pondering when they come around to you.

We mostly live on Social Security, so those free dinners are a great night out and we do one or two a month if we can. The last one was a pitch on some training to learn how to get rich flipping real estate, but the cheapskates only fed us a box lunch with a ham sandwich and a bag of popcorn. However, they did give us a bonus of $250 at Starbucks we can use for $20 a month if we jump through some hoops. I like the ones that try to get us to use them as financial advisers and feed us Salmon Filets or Prime Steaks. But even better are timeshare pitches that give us prepaid debit cards for $100 or more and yes we did buy from them.
