phillyb Posted May 18, 2017 Share Posted May 18, 2017 Cross posting this from another forum I'm on: I "won" a trip to Vegas and Orlando while I was on vacation last week. I was driving my rental back to the airport and was listening to a radio station. They asked a trivia question (Name a country without the letter A) and I called to answer. They took down my info and called me back. I answered and then they go into a whole spiel. Maybe I should have listened to the radio promotion more cause I really had no idea what I'd "won." I didn't win shit, but I got an opportunity to get a really good deal on two vacations: 5 days and 4 nights in Vegas and 4 days and 3 nights in Orlando, hotel paid for. In order to "lock in the deal," I had to pay $299. In addition to the hotel (I have to pay air fare), I get two tickets to Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil in Vegas. And I get a $100 dollar cash voucher for the Orlando trip. So I called a travel agency and got a good promotional deal for two vacations because I happened to have some silly trivia in my head. All in all though, it seems worth it. It's "scammy" in the sense that you think you won something for free, when you really didn't, but at the end of the day, I got two vacations, 4 entertainment tickets, and $100 voucher for $299 up front. I have 24 months to take the trips and all I have to do is pay air fare. I think that's a pretty decent deal, despite getting "scammed" into being sold stuff. I really don't even mind a good salesperson and being sold shit. I like it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
