There also must be patience in winner notification. Did you enter a contest that ended in the first of July but haven't heard that you've won? Don't assume you didn't. This week the mailman was very nice to us. On Wednesdsay I recieved a letter in the mail from the SmartSource Blast Off Sweepstakes announcing I was the first place winner. I won an Apollo Sterling Coin Collection (I was trying to win one of the two trips to the Kennedy Space Center, but I feel good I was one of only about 15 winners nationwide for ANY prizes). The contest had ended in mid-June. This afternoon we had a package in the mail from WB. My son has won four action figures and a comic book from the Batman 100-A-Day Giveaway. The contest ended May 7 and we had never gotten an e-mail or anything that the prize was coming. What a nice surprise.
The sweepstakes prizes I'm listing below would certainly be nice to have in my mailbox. All of them are Publix Supermarket Sweepstakes giving away mostly gift cards of $50 or more. Who couldn't use that? The sweepstakes is limited to the states of AL, GA, FL, TN and SC.
