I tried to remember if I'd won anything else in 2010. Here's what I came up with [updated 12/27/10]:
- I won a $50 Target gift card from the Dr. Oz giveaway a few months ago.
- I won a case of PopChips (the small 100-calorie bags - yum!).
- I won four tickets to the children's museum via Facebook.
- I won a box of Tetley Tea via Facebook.
- I won a giant stack of Laughing Cow coupons via Twitter.
- I earned about $200 in Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks (and since I started have earned almost $500 in cash and Amazon gift cards).
- I earned at least $100 in Amazon gift cards from mypoints.com.
- I earned about $50-$75 from various online survey sites. I wasn't that strict about these - I just don't always have time to do a survey and I ignore 99% of the survey emails (I do MySurvey and Synovate when I see them, but other sites send me emails that I don't usually have time for).
Next year I'll try to be better about noting when I earn/win cash and prizes.
Do you like to enter contests? Where do you hear about them? I tend to learn about them from blogs like Money Saving Mom and iheartpublix.com, and a friend of mine just linked me to online-sweepstakes.com, although at the moment that's pretty overwhelming!
And who knows. Maybe in 2011 I will start being able to give things away in this blog! (That would be fantastic!)
