Sweeps SuccessSometimes you don’t know you won a prize until it shows up on your doorstep. Here’s an entertaining “Sweeps Success Story” from Gretchen about the prize she was surprised with:

“I’ve won quite a few items over the years,  but just one “big” ones,  a trip to LA to see a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. But my most interesting story is getting a FedEx delivery the day after Thanksgiving.

It was a large box that was sort of beaten up and had a messy handwritten label. I wondered what I was receiving, even wondering if it was some sort of joke or something. I opened it, with my visiting family members (it was Thanksgiving, after all) by my side. I even remarked, “Maybe I won something??”

As I opened it, I discovered a  large Vera Bradley bag stuffed with all sorts of items, including Vera Wang perfume, jewelry, bluetooth headphones, nice ipod speakers, and a coupon for a $200 pair of jeans at a boutique in NYC (I sent it to my friend who lives there – boy was she happy!).

I honestly had no idea what sweeps I had even entered to win. A couple of days later, I received an email from someone at Billboard magazine wanting to confirm I received my package. Turns out I won one of the swag bags that all the presenters got from the Women In Music Awards! A fun surprise and all of my visiting family members got to go home with some early Christmas gifts!”
