Fire up the old Facebook machine because you can enter for a chance to win a trip for 2 to Paris. I don’t like this trend to run contests on Facebook, but I may have to cave and participate soon. Too many juicy contests are passing me by. Good Luck!

    I’m boycotting. Gave in to one a while ago but then backed out when they requested a lot of inappropriate Facebook “permissions.” That’s way too far beyond what we already put up with in contesting (in terms of the free advertising and spam emails), especially when it’s then inflicted on our friends.

    (you could set up another facebk pg)…… shhhh, that suggestion did not come from me

    I’m with you guys. There’s lots of good contests, I don’t want to have them all junking up my facebook though. And the access, no thanks. But, I hate to pass them up too. GLTA.

    I think Dinah’s on the right track.

    Just wondered if any one of you got a bogus call from someone saying that you won a trip to Disney. I have entered many contests and I guess someone sold some our names to dishonest people. This person had all my information including my date of birth.

    Hi Josie,
    I got a call recently about a trip to Orlando. They went on and on about how it was worth $3,000, and it was to include a rental car for 7 days, 4 days/nights at Disney and they would include a 3 day cruise with it. Then at the end they said I would have to pay $187 per adult (2 kids were free) and buy my own airplane tickets to Orlando. Does that sound familiar ?

    Hi John & Josie: I got one of those “you’ve won a cruise” and all that other stuff John mentioned, and the price was around the $200 mark per person too. But, I told them I wouldn’t give out my credit card number over the phone. They practically cried. Oh well, not flexible on that. So, I just said thank you and hung up. They couldn’t seem to believe that I would turn down their “deal”. Oh well!

    Hi, John, Josie and Donna, etal; it is, at it’s simplest a credit card scam. Good on you for stopping them. As the calls don’t come from Canada the cops have a hard time doing anything about it. So as always, buyer beware.
    I am at the point where I will not enter a contest that demands my date of birth, that is just asking for identity theft…

    This Facebook crap is ticking me off, this contest you must LIKE the page BEFORE you can see thier privacy policy. Why use Facebook? It is so they can harvest ALL of your Friends information. Crooked IMHO

    I finally gave in and opened a Facebook account after seeing too many great contests just for Facebook. I have no friends not even my husband, because if you have friends then anyone can find you. I have it so no one can search for me and have it at the highest level of security. I use it just for contests and have no information other than my email and a picture which is of a character. So far I have won 1 contest through Facebook. No problems with spam. I only enter the ones from reputable companies. So far so good.
