It’s not a contest win, but yesterday when I was checking in for my flight, the desk clerk asked me if I wanted a wheelchair. I said no I didn’t need one, puzzled. She said there’s a request for one on your ticket, did I want one at my arrival gate. I told her, no, it was some kind of mistake. I’m TSA precheck, but no disabilities. I don’t even know how I got pre, I’m not old enough and didn’t pay the fee but I’ve been TSA pre for several years. She said okay, but you have preboard status on your ticket, so go ahead and take advantage of that. I was flying Southwest, no assigned seating so it was quite a perk. I waited for all the legit preboard people to get on and seated, then just went first in line of the regular passengers. Got the very front seat on the aisle, no tray table but acres of leg room and bend forward room. I’d gotten that seat for the first time by luck on the flight out and really liked it, so I had it both flights.
Question:. Are those giveaways on Amazon legit? I must have entered 300- 500 of them and won zip. I’ve also entered in for some strange things that I’m sure noone else wants to win… I don’t want the prize I just want to win for once.
@OnionSoup Yes they are legit, but they changed the way they worked in the last few months. There used to be different kinds of giveaways. Such as random entry based on defined odds (1 in 400 chance of winning), certain entry wins(400th entrant wins), raffle style based on total entries etc… Now, I they might all be certain entry wins, or at least that how it seems. In other words, being the first one to enter is a disadvantage, so you have to be aware of how many entries are accepted and then estimate when you should enter. They also base the odds off of the product value now, you won’t find as many good items with favorable odds.
@OnionSoup for a while I was on there daily trying to win and after a week or so I won a $25 exfoliating body scrub stuff. Which I was excited about then received and it was too perfumey which I can’t handle. So that sucks. I need to get on there and try some more.
