This has been the season of winning. Since December, I’ve been lucky enough to win 3 different contests.
The second contest I won was through “You Could Win a BlackBerry Torch” sweepstakes on December 22. They were giving two BlackBerry Torch 9800s away each day from Nov. 20 – Dec. 24, one via Twitter and the other via Facebook. I scored me a red Torch (approximate retail value of $499). Unfortunately, when I was entering the contest, I didn’t take into account that the Torch is only available for AT&T, which means I won’t be able to use it on Verizon. It arrived today. For now, it means it will sit in the closet.
My last contest that I won was another Twitter contest. This was by Jim Irsay, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts. The contest, an AFC Division Champion hat, all for spelling the word “cheese” correctly. Seriously, that was it!
It was a good few weeks, I have to admit. The only thing that would have made it better is if the Torch would be available on Verizon.
