Just curious as to whether any of you have won anything lately. I love entering contests and get such a kick out of winning sometimes.

I had entered a contest to win a cruise. It was the only trip contest I had entered recently. It was an all expenses paid, round trip from the airport nearest my home, to Florida where the cruise set sail from.
Couple weeks later I got a call from a lady, saying I won. We go through dates for flight and cruise departures. She says 'okay. Now I just need your credit card number. ' I ask why and she says I am responsible for $600 of the total cost before my tickets will be sent to me.

Needless to say, we didn't actually win anything but a scam. Which is odd because it was sponsored by an actual legit company, who had no idea why I got a call like that when I contacted them.

I won 4 Blog contests in the last couple of months ,I find you have better odds with blog contests because you get more entries

Apart from the products I've received to try out for free, I haven't won any contests in particular lately. In the past, I've been quite lucky and I'm hoping it'll start picking up again. I've entered a few blog contests this month, so I'm crossing my fingers.
@Krissi That's so shady that they would ask you to pay for something you won. Did the company you contacted direct you to the real prize in the end? I hope it gets regulated so that you can enjoy a free trip!

Sadly I had to give up comping for a little bit as I was so tired and ill. :(
Tracyr: Absolutely! I prioritise blog contests for that reason!
