Sweeps Success Story: Freebies 4 Mom Reader Wins Minivan from Albertsons

by Freebies4Mom on October 28, 2010 9:30 am

Do you remember the Albertsons Sweeps: 39 Daily $25 Winners I shared with you to help readers in limited participating states to win a $25 gift card? I didn’t even mention that the grand prize was a Minivan – but Kristen won that Minivan after learning about this sweeps from my blog!  And hes really needed that Minivan with baby #3 on the way so it was perfect timing!

Here is Kristen’s “Sweeps Success Story”:

“I have been reading your blog most days for the past several months and really appreciate all of the free stuff and coupons I have received in that time. I never expected to win anything big but have really enjoyed requesting free samples and playing some of the instant win games and sweeps you post.

I am writing to let you know that I won the Albertson’s Facebook Fall Into Good Things Sweepstakes that I found on your website. I was playing the game to try to win the $25 Albertsons gift card which never happened, but I got a message on my cell phone from a weird number about a month ago. I listened to the message and told my husband that I was pretty sure we just won a minivan. He wasn’t too sure at first and neither were our parents, but Albertsons has officially announced it now so we definitely aren’t worried about it being real any more. We’ll get the minivan in a few weeks at a party they are having for us at our local Albertsons. They even gave us a few options on the van and some nice upgrades that we really didn’t expect.

We have 2 kids (one is 3, one is 2) and another due in March. We can’t fit 3 car seats into our current vehicle and weren’t sure what we were going to do next March when our third child is due. Winning the Albertsons sweepstakes for a minivan was such a blessing. We are so excited! It is so fun to win something like this. Thanks for all you do. This has been a dream come true for us.” -Kristen

Just a head up as a previous car winner – the federal taxes are pretty high for winning a vehicle and since you’ll be accepting the vehicle this year (2010) – the taxes will be due this upcoming spring. The value of the car will all be treated as “income” and taxed at a higher rate (around 30-40%) – so depending on your situation plan on owing a lot more this year than previously. Thankfully, when we won a vehicle, we weren’t making a lot of money and only had to pay around $700 (previous years we had got a refund of around $2000). You definitely can’t get a nice car for the price you will be paying in taxes, so it’s still an awesome blessing – congrats!
