Magnum Mike, I'm helping his relatives get the money out of Nigeria and shortly, I'll be VERY rich! I'll share some of the loot with ya!

I didn't get a darned thing for it, but a British trucking magazine once printed a picture I took of my truck next to the dinosoar sculptures at Cabazon, CA.

I remember a few years back winning A case of gum. Not sure if you would consider it a contest tho - It was from Juicy Fruit. I have won other small contests on other forums, do those count?

I have never won anything online.

Many years ago I worked part time delivering pizza. There were 7 stores in the franchise. One time they had a promo where a game piece was attached on the pizza box. The day before the promo started, the manager of my store opened 1 game piece to show us what they looked like. It was the grand prize winning game piece. About a week into the promo he gave it to a friend to claim the prize worth a thousand dollars.

I don't take part in many contests but I've tried and never won.
Anyway, since it's free and doesn't take time, why not try?

Back in 1999 I won Free Trades for life with Fidelity Investments. It's a great deal but I'm afraid to go near the stock market now.
