Getting an email from Dunkin Donuts, stating you are a winner... only to find out "Our Sweetstakes is still underway. But we want you to feel like a winner today. Enjoy FREE samples of our NEW Bakery Series coffee cup flavor contenders, on us."

And although you are disappointed, a part of you is doing a happy dance cause you got "something!!!" LOL

"Winning" 20% off any purchase with this code. To me, that's kinda like a date bring you flowers and then saying "Oh, by the way, you owe me ten bucks."

I find that, in spite of how my memory is waning for most other things, I can instantly recall exactly which sweep someone is talking about with the slightest description.

Friend: "You know that one sweep with the blue background and the trip to Hawaii as a prize?"
Me: " I know exactly which one you're talking about."

Looking at the caller id number when your phone rings and trying to figure out if it might be a win and whether you should pick it up or not

Can we all relate to the end of the month frantically going through 40 pages on OLS just to make sure we entered all sweeps that expire at the end of that month?

On instants, one of those words would appear at the end of the page's URL. You could see that you lost before you played the game.

I think it was here someone had gotten the words or one of them on their vanity plates.
And I think pets have been named inky or janky.

Every one of your 165K tweets is a sweepstakes entry and you don't personally know any of your FB friends.

Knowing the sound of the UPS truck, when it pulls off the highway 2 blocks away.

And getting excited.

THE JOY of winning a vacation while you're on that a vacation you won & are bummed that it's ending & you have to go back to the real world.

Granted that hasn't happened to me nearly as often as I'd like, though
