this is my first big win
(PRWEB) January 12, 2012
A member of Sweepstakes Advantage (http://www.sweepsadvantage.com), the fastest growing and most comprehensive sweepstakes and contests directory online, has won the grand prize of the Sears Wish List Sweepstakes, making her the potential receiver of a check worth $25,000. It was a huge and unforgettable surprise for Sweepstakes Advantage Bronze member, Laylabean (not real name), who had never won as much in her life. She was an ordinary SA member with an ordinary dream of taking home a big win someday.
This dream is so close to reality – at least for now – after she received an email saying she is the “potential winner” of the coveted Sears sweepstakes that first opened on October 12 and ended on December 18, 2011. In a post on the SA Forum on Friday, January 6, 2012, under the category Winners’ Circle, a bewildered SA member was quoted saying, “This is my first big win, I’ve never had to fill forms out or W9s before so I’m wondering if the email says you’re a possible grand prize winner. Does that mean as long as I get the forms in then I’m the winner? I’m so nervous about all this. I want to make sure I do everything right. So if anyone has info on this and what I should do, I’d love to hear from you. The last thing I want to do is screw this up.”
Support immediately poured in just minutes after the shocked SA member posted her query. Another Bronze member, Lotusdragonfly (not real name), was quoted saying, “Yep. Generally, it means that if you filled out the entry correctly, filled out the forms correctly and return them promptly, and you followed the rules of the giveaway, the prize is yours.”
Other members like 19debbie52, an SA Silver member, tried to calm down the uneasy lucky winner, and advised that Laylabean should not be worried as the sponsor is usually quite helpful when problems arises.
The Sears Wish List Sweepstakes was open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who were 18 years old and above. Aside from the grand prize, there were 68 daily random drawings. Each day, ten (10) potential daily winners received one (1) Zhu Zhu Pet worth $10. A total of $6,800 was given in daily sweepstakes. Kenneth Carlos, President and founder of Sweepstakes Advantage, congratulated the big winner. Laylabean is probably the biggest Sweepstakes Advantage member to-date; besting previous Sweepstakes Advantage members have won huge prizes such as a Ford Mustang, a Harley Davidson, and trips to Bahamas, London, Italy and Paris.
