Does Anybody Ever Win Monopoly Sweepstakes?
June 1, 2012 2 Comments
Everyone from McDonald’s to Albertsons seems to team up with the popular board game, Monopoly, these days to feature contests with all kinds of prizes from free food to big money. But does anyone ever actually win the loot in these sweepstakes?
When I moved to Texas earlier this year for my new job with Townsquare Media, I was really missing the Kroger stores I shopped at when I lived in Cincinnati. But Albertsons was the next best thing in Texarkana, and since they were giving away free Monopoly game pieces that could add up to big prizes, including money and free groceries, I decided to start making my purchases there.
I’ve always been one of those people who entered every Publishers Clearing House or American Family Sweepstakes because I figured somebody had to win. It may as well be me! Now while I haven’t won millions of dollars, a phone call I received in early May really took me by surprise.
I was out running errands when the manager of the local Albertsons store called me to inform me that I won $1,000 in gift cards and they wanted to arrange for me to come and get my prize. You can imagine my shock and delight! When I arrived, the manager gave me a free Monopoly game, two dozen roses and even a cake to celebrate my win.
So the next time you are second guessing whether or not you should play a contest on the radio, play the game at your local grocer or even submit an entry card via mail, remember that your friends have won big via one of these games and so can you!
