I was surfing around the interwebs, and I saw an add that said : "M&M's take You + 2 Friends to NEW YORK!!"

I started to wonder, did anyone ever win one of these "contests"(?).

This includes TV stuff, where you call, give answer, get money.

Or some Coca-Cola advert that had you collect 100 caps for a chance for a trip.

I, myself never bothered long enough to collect X of an item, or call to participate.

I'm just wondering if anyone has ever won anything through these small contests.

Also, state fair contests count, share your stuffed prizes!
I like to pick my nose and eat whatever comes out. Whatever comes out..

No, why people do it amuses me.


Exactly, I just wanted to know if someone actually participated and actually won something.

I know a guy who got 100 Euros for answering some simple questions in TV..

There was some lady on the Today Show that made between $2-4,000 a week just on contests. She said she would enter at least 30 a week.

Dammit, so there are no fantastic stories of free trips, that end up being crappy.

Remember when they did the gray M&M deal back in the 90s? I found one in my bag, but the bag said I didn't have a gray M&M...lol thought I won a whole bunch of money for a second...

I did enter a contest on NME.com for an all expenses paid trip to New York to see The Libertines. I won the damn contest....but I was out of town for a month and couldn't claim my tickets...I was pissed.
