Bay Harbor, FL (PRWEB) January 15, 2007
David Becker of Bay Harbor, Florida won $17,000 in the November American DreamCard™ credit card sweepstakes. Becker is an internet manager for Acura of South Florida and a cardholder for a couple of years. His wife Leslie encouraged him to apply after receiving an offer by mail as she liked the look of the card. David plans to spend his $17,000 cash win to help his two daughters with college costs; the oldest is attending nursing school. When asked how it felt to win, he replied, "It never crossed my mind that I could win anything. I always saw pictures of people holding big lottery checks and winning things and never thought that would happen to me. Until I spoke with the American DreamCard Sweepstakes Administrator, I was in disbelief."
