Once I got an electric stove. The table top type which can accumulate two kettles maximum per cooking time. It was a raffle which the engineering company I worked for sponsored for the benefit of the employees. There was another one which the school I was in conducted. I won the consolation prize which was a plastic full of candies of about 100 pieces or it could have been only 50, I didn't count. My friends then, had a heyday eating those candies.

I have recently won some hampers from a competition in a magazine. I always buy 3 copies of this magazine to enter into the competitions. It turned out I won in all three of my magazines. The next night I was watching tv and on one of the shows it said the magazine was recalled because their was a mistake, they also said they would honour the prizes still. That is why I had won in all of my magazines. So I still got my hampers, I was very happy about that. I am glad that I buy 3 of these magazines every week now.

Thanks for your response. Congratulations on the win too, that was fantastic. I wouldve gone and bought 10 magazines to win 10 prizes and then I wouldve shared all the prizes with my friends. Once I won a holiday to Sea World for 2 adults and 2 children with $500 spending money included. I had just split from my husband at the time and had a difficult child so there was no way that I could go. I ended up selling it for $500.

Spelling bees, A cruise, At work we had prizes, friendly competition for who met their quota and for those who were the highest got 200 extra in their checks. I got it alsmost every month plus other prizes for the most money collected each day. Sometimes I would have an extra 1k in my check because of it. It was nice.
