What is your all time favorite sweepstakes/contest?
Hands down for me it has to be the Stephen Colbert Wonderful Pistachios contest ( I think a contest because you were actually competing with other people ) or was it a sweepstakes....

In all my years doing this I never had so much fun. I really enjoyed and is for me the most memorable.

There was a Coke IWG that gave $25 gift cards every 5 minutes or so. I won quite a few of those gift cards & was able to pay for a Disneyworld annual pass! The thrill of winning so often was amazing!

MSN search and win. Think we won 20-30 prizes worth about $2500, had a whole stack of gift cards.

Was getting ssi at the time, so the fact that there were no 1099s was kind of nice too.

Other than the one that gave us the $21,000 prize & I'll be forever grateful, I still think about the Disney one where you drove a ship around a game board. It was sort of like chutes & ladders? My son was at such a cute age, asking me to play the game with him every day. We'd cheer & groan as we got good or bad moves. It took a good chunk of time to play each day & I never won anything, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Fun question.

Years ago there was a Crayola summer sweep where they gave away hundreds of their products every week. I won enough to keep my now grown kids busy all summer.

"Idiocracy". It's a movie, not an instruction manual.

Same here. I have won several $100's and some $50's. Most recent was last month, the only Publix win that was not a Publix card. It was a $100 Exxon Mobile card which I gave to my neighbor who has a long commute and has changed her work days to drive me to my recent cataract surgeries.

The sweepstakes from Motorola and Honda where I won a new car! One of the most fun experiences I've ever had. Other than that, it was probably the David nuts sweepstakes where I received a five gallon bucket full of sunflower seeds in the mail without any notice. That was quite the surprise!
