I haven’t used Blingo(referral link) in a while. Chalk it up to switching laptops, forgetting to add the search tool to my browser, yadda yadda yadda.
Well, I got back from a long Memorial Day weekend and had an e-mail notifying me that one of my “friends” had won a prize, which means that I won a prize as well. Now, I get e-mails all the time notifying me that I had won a movie ticket or an iTunes giftcard, and I have probably only claimed half of them. That is partly my fault. I forget to star the email and it gets pushed to page 2 or 3 of my Gmail account before I have a chance to act on it.
This e-mail was different though. I hadn’t just won another gift card. One of my referrals won a 42″ Plasma HDTV! I immediately accepted the prize and told my wife – who was less than enthusiastic, quipping “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
So I went through the necessary steps, faxed some paperwork to, and got a call from someone at Best Buy HQ in Minneapolis today to schedule delivery of my TV from the local Best Buy. Looks like it will be here at my office early next week.
