Known Telemarketers--like buck/bassmasters....anything timeshare company.

Agree trips to Mexico don't interest me.

Disagree on loan companies---recently won $2,000....have won $1,000 previously. It really depends on privacy policy, anyone who hounds me with phone calls pretty much loses any chance at my business.

I skip some too
like creative presentations, ones that require a ton of newsletters for a chance at just one or two prizes, blogs, and while I enter the gleam type, I'm really getting impatient with how long they take.

Last year, I went on a trip to Mexico that I won. My wife and I didn't have any issues at all...we went to Puerto Vallarta. The tourist areas are really safe...Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, etc. The vast, vast majority of crimes in Mexico are on the border areas. A lot of people are just paranoid of the entire country of Mexico it's all because of the bad press by the media.

Why Las Vegas? I won another trip to there once in 2009. I traveled alone on my trip win there and I didn't have any issues whatsoever.

I stay away from any timeshares, spammy looking ones, and creative presentations.
I will enter for any and all trips unless there is a specified date the trip has to be taken on and I have something planned I can't get out of. I've won 12 trips in the last 14 years, lots of getaways (within driving distance or I just have to do my own airfare) as well. I live 10 minutes from an international airport, have all my travel vaccines and an up to date passport. I'll win any trip to Mexico you give me. I've won two different resort stays in Mexico as well as a trip to Guadelajara for a futbol (soccer) game. Three amazing trips!

Do a Random Act of Kindness every day! Spread peace and joy!

Fear of the super tall hotels. Don't want to spend the night. I have been to Reno many times for business, shows and gambling. I liked the atmosphere there.

Any sweep that requires you to sign up for multiple newsletters.

I have never heard of anyone winning one of those.

Timeshares, I love them especially Marriott, I won $10,000 from that sweep.

No
Nothing that includes listening to a spiel about time shares or vacation homes. No tobacco sweeps. No trips other than within the US or to Canada or any of our island neighbors. I'm not going to Asia or South America or even Europe now. That long trip would send my anxiety through the roof. No Australia.

Won trip to Cancun in 2006. It was fine but I don't want to go back to Mexico, anywhere at all, now. Crime and crooked cops just looking for this gringo.
