Err.. What shall I say..?
Everything happens for a reason.
As for my case, maybe it's just my luck ;)
I've got this two cute Apple MP3 players, iPod nano 2 GB and shuffle (both are silver), on mid February and late April respectively from two different on-line quizzes. Aha!
Later the new iPod shuffle has been sold to my bff Novi for IDR 350,000 (more than 50% off its original price), meanwhile the nano is used. I already have iPod photo 20 GB actually, that's why I'm not into another shuffle. Besides, I can allocate the money to cover my new peep-toe pump shoes. Bite me!
Another piece of mind. Frankly I'd prefer cash to products that sometimes useless for me, when it comes to a door prize or something like that. It's not that I'm not grateful for what I've been given, it's just simply my two cents. *Oh God, I beg your Prada*
Well, it's true, don't you agree with me? I mean, cash prizes are more advantageous than random regular products. Even if you can get something like TV, digital camera, washing machine, etc which is eligible to exchange with even bigger amount of cash, but still it's pretty hard to find the buyer with (of course) the expected price. Most of the time, you have to compromise with them due to financial difficulties. That's too bad.
On the other side, when you win things like exactly what you need/dream of, such as car, mobile phone, or even a book!, I'm sure you must be insanely excited.
Sometimes the company gives away prizes in order to introduce their new products into the market like most of cosmetics producer did all the time; by wrapping several miniatures of their various products into a nice package. However, some other thing I just don't get it until now, like what just happened to me. Well yes the first quiz was sponsored by Apple, but the other one had nothing to do with Apple; why did they choose Apple products as one of the prizes?
Do you have any idea? Or simply because they just want to give it away like that without any purpose? It's not particularly discussing about Apple products, hell no. You got my point.
I rest my case.
