Have you ever won a giveaway or a contest?

I always liked to participate in contests and giveaways, some are really simple and we only need to create an original sentence with the required words, like their facebook page, draw something or upload a photo. I can say that I have some luck, just to name some things that I have already won: a samsung tablet, shoes, cosmetics, perfums, silver earrings and necklace, toys, vouchers, yogurts for the all year, detergent for the washing machine for the all year, sunscream ... Yesterday I received a message from Inneov saying that I am the winner of their giveaway, I won their hair supplement for 3 months, the one in the picture. How did I win? Well, they were asking in their facebook page to upload a picture of how we protect us during the summer and I uploaded the picture I have here in my profile. I have only won little things that make me really happy but I wish one day I win a big prize, like the euromillions I will keep dreaming Have you ever won a giveaway or a contest?

I did. I won two lamps. I was a perfume model, those ladies who spray people who do not want to be sprayed with perfume, in my college days at Neiman Marcus, and I was really bored. So, I just kept entering contests going on in the store. I also answered a question right on the radio and won $50. That is it.

I can't remember winning anything to be honest although when I was a teenager I got an article printed in a magazine about my dad shaving half his moustache off accidentally! I think I got some money for that although it wouldn't have been much.
@hillhjill I don't know where you have to look at in the US, here many magazines have giveaways in their websites, bloggers always have contests too, in the supermarkets some brands have contests to promote their products, brands facebook pages also have contests every now and then.

I've only won one, which was last year. It was a mothers day contest for concert tickets, and all I had to do was upload a photo of myself with my mom and say why I'd like to win the tickets for us to see the concert.. didn't think we'd enjoy the concert but we did! a lot!

I have won a few things, a two-night hotel getaway, small amounts of money, I did win Bingo at the casino for $500 and I have won a few gift cards. My husband hit the lottery for $2500.00 which was pretty lucky. That's about it but I don't enter many things.
I've won many things over the years in competitions organised by shops or firms. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy the biggest prizes. One was a week in a seaside hotel in Turkey for two people, flight inclusive. The date was during school term and I couldn't ask for leave from my headmaster to go on holiday for a week, of course! It was possible to give the prize to someone else. So my cousin and her husband went. The other big prize was a one-week cruise in the Mediterranean Sea. Also for two people. I live in the South of Germany. The cruise started and ended in Nice, France. Can you imagine what it would have cost us to get to Nice on our own? That was somewhat dishonest. I can't write down all the small prizes I've won. I remember a China tea pot and two cups, An espresso machine, an enormous packet with expensive food delicacies, books, a savings bank book with 50 Euro. I haven't participated in any comps for a long time. Funnily, I decided to start again today and put a postcard in a letter-box this afternoon. Fingers crossed!!
