So,

I always enter competitions with very little belief that they're genuine and stuff.

I'll be honest I've always been doubtful that real people win stuff (either that or just been a bit miffed it was never me)

However I also believe in karma and that life always brings about what you need at the right time.

I recently entered a competition with o2 on their facebook site where you had to write what you would say if you could ping yourself ten years ago...

my answer

"I can't say what happens but always remember: Dinosaurs are AWESOME!!! also clean your damn room!!"

To be truthful yeah it made me giggle but I truly didn't think it would win!!!

It did though and now I'm getting a brand new Blackberry Pearl :) Massive happy face!

Hi Keeley, thanks again for entering our Ping competition and congratulations on winning a new BlackBerry Pearl! Please can you send me your address and contact number so we can arrange delivery of the phone.

Thanks,
Sanjay

My winners letter!

So I guess my questions are:

a) do you enter competitions or not bother cos you don't believe you'll win

b) have you ever won anything?

:D

Make sure this isn't a scam first, they might just want to get your personal information.

To answer the OP, I've entered some competitions, but it's mostly involving fantasy sports. I try to win a car, or some other type of prizes. I've been close a few times, but never actually won anything.

Wow, good going, is it definitely legit!?!

I never enter those competitions, normally I can't be bothered but also most of them are scams etc.

Therefore I've never won a competition by default.

oh man I'd be way too skeptical if I actually won something like that. haha

The only thing I've ever "won" is a cell phone charm from a beverage company I like. I forget how exactly, but involved sending in some coupons or something I collected from the bottles.

No I was totally doubting it until it arrived!

I'm quite lucky I guess I win quite a lot of stuff!

I never enter these competitions for 2 reasons:

1- I don't believe in my abilities.
2- I don't believe in their truthfulness, thinking they are fake.

Until I see you added on BBM I don't believe you.

Also, I generally don't bother entering competitions because of the unlikeliness of ever winning anything. That said, when BP had their "Win a VW Eos" competition, I must have entered over a hundred entries.

I've won a TV at our Varsity Spring Day. It was a really small cheap ass TV. It was funny coz I didn't hear the announcement. I was drunk somewhere I think. So everyone I passed was saying congrats... I was like WTF?

Congrats Kibster. Now join the DA. You know you want to! ;)
