A couple of wins for me!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Recently, I've won prizes in a couple of contests.

About 2 weeks ago, I entered a giveaway that one of the members of the Chair Exercise team here on Spark was hosting. I won a Jodi Stolove Life's A Celebration Chair Dancing Fitness DVD; it came in the mail today. I will probably wait til the weekend to try it since I have chemo tomorrow. I have a couple of other Jodi Stolove DVDs and really like them, but I did not have this one yet.

I also joined Kellogg's Family Rewards a few weeks ago; you enter codes found on packages of their products and get points that you can get rewards with, such as kitchen gadgets or sporting goods.When you enter the codes online, you are also automatically entered to win a $200 gift card, and I found out this morning I had won one! The email said it's a bank issued card, so I am guessing it's a Visa gift card or something like that. It totally made my day to get that email! If you are interested, you find it by googling Kellogg's Family Rewards; I don't think Spark will allow me to put the actual link in my blog.

Today is a very dreary day weather wise; it rained all night, then turned colder, so there is ice everywhere. We are also under a wind advisory til 9pm and it's been snowing on and off. I didn't even go out for the mail today; just don't feel like trying to walk over the ice especially when it's so windy and cold. I got the DVD because the mailman brought that to my door since it would not fit in my box in the mail room. Because of the weather today, my pain issues are aggravated and I have a little bit of a sinus headache, another reason that I do not feel like going outside and dealing with the elements. But getting my DVD today, and finding out about the gift card sure put a smile on my face!

    Good for you. I never win anything, just not a lucky person I guess.
I belong to Kellogg's Family Rewards too. So far, haven't won anything.

Glad you stayed in today, no need to ask for trouble. The mail will still be there.
Again congrats on your wins. emoticon
