Readers Digest - real people do win!

We just found out that my Aunt has won on the Readers Digest - a $125 000 Mercedes! She's going to take $100 000 cash for it instead.

I've been entering these off and on and thought they were a bit of a gimmick but I'm truly reinspired!

Its also a great win for a battler, she was in hospital when she found out and she said it made her feel 100% better than all the medicine they were giving her!

Wonderful news !!

I will keep entering now instead of throwing it away.

The trouble is they are so complicated to enter!!!!

Oh Frizzy I'm disappointed in you, as a dedicated comper you should know that your chances are that much better then!

Nice to hear that someone does win from Readers Digest:)

Congratulations to your Aunt and I hope she is feeling better soon Jessitibb:)

Although I have bought many books from them etc over the years, since 1988. It will just inspire me to keep sending in my "No reply" envelopes because lately, nothing has caught my eye in the catalogues ;)

how complicated?

I don't even look if I see RD. I always think once they've got your name they bombard you with junk mail

I think I just get a mental blank when I see Readers Digest and just start to panic and imagine it is a lot harder than it is .
I will have a good look at it next time.

Congratulations to your Aunt, Jesstibb. Fantastic prize!!:D I'll have to start taking a closer look when I see the readers digest competitions. I didn't think they were real and just normally throw them away. Thanks again for the inspiration.

CONGRATULATIONS:

Did she tick the YES box and buy a book and win,?

I tick "NO" so I wonder if my entry goes in the bin:mad:

I think she does buy things, I'm not sure if its every time though. I've been entering them online recently, so fingers crossed.

They are definively above board. I believe it works something
like this: Before the comp opens, the winning numbers are
selected and put into a safe. Then they make random selections till they get a winner. Even the No envelopes are
included in the draw and the draws are ridgy didge.
The odds are not good though.

Congratulations!!!

Congratulate your Aunt for me.... well done... that's fantastic news!!!

I'm a big kid, I like finding where the stickers belong!:P:P

Fred111, always wondered if its just a big scam! As for the odds...gotta be better than last weeks OzLottos and its free (bar postage).

Oops. BTW congrats to Justtibb's aunt. I love hearing about big wins going to the battler!
posted 5-7-2009 @ 04:13 AM www


So COULD you ask her Jesstibb please if she actually bought something or just says "NO". I just said "NO" to the health recipe book offer, I really don't want it.

frizzy it's ok - take a BEX have a good lie down, you CAN do it, if I can, you can!!! :P:P;);)

Just remember we WILL get bombarded with stuff for the next 45 years or more...so if that fails to panic you then you are made of the right comping stuff!!!;);)

Congratulations to your aunt, Jesstibb!!! I love news like that!!!
I keep entering with the No envelope, I always wonder about these comps. Good to hear that you do win.:):):):)
