This momma just won herself a new pair of shoes.
Honestly I am not the type of person who enters online contests so, by default, that makes me a person who does not win online contests. That is, until about three weeks ago, when I did enter a contest and actually won. By the way, those cookies were darn good.
On Sunday I get an email from my neighbor with a link to a shoe promotion Dasani and New Balance are doing on these groovy sounding shoes that are made from recycled plastic bottles. She explains that she does not usually enter such contests but a friend of hers did, won shoes, and nothing bad came of it. Later that day I get a second email from my neighbor that is full of exclamation points, not my favorite mark in the punctuation family in case you were wondering, stating that she won. Fine. I decide to try to keep up with the Jones so I click on the site, enter the obligatory information, and click the big button to see if I am a winner. I am not.
Life continues as normal and I have completely forgot about my status as a loser. Monday morning madness of getting the boys dressed, fed, and out the door to school went well and I am home dinking around on the computer to avoid folding laundry and vacuuming the house. I see an email from New Balance that I received yesterday telling me I can try again the next day. Well, I think, today is another day. This time since they have all my personal information that they will do God knows what with, I only have to enter my email address and push the magic “Did You Win?” button. Yup – got myself a new pair of shoes.
Would you like to try? Click here. Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, no one is paying me to promote this site or these companies, blah, blah, blah.
Unless anyone has anymore contests for me to enter and win, I guess I will go fold that laundry now.
