Camera Renter

I found a link on Facebook last week for this site/program called CameraRenter.  (  This allows you to "rent" 10 digital cameras, which can take up to 2000 pictures, much like you would with a disposable camera.  
So they were running a contest, and I received notice today that I was the runner up.  The prize allowed me to take $200 off of the "all inclusive package."  I spoke to my fiance, and my roommate- they both feel that it might be a ploy, and that everyone who enters are considered "runners up" making you feel like you had to spend the money.  I was curious if anyone else had this experience, or even heard about them.

    If it's not a scam, I still think it's a waste of money.  A lot of your guests will bring their own cameras, plus you'll have a photographer there right?  You'll get a ton of pictures from your guests even if you don't provide cameras for them.  I'd say save your money and spend on something more worthwhile.

    I always Google "(business name) reviews" when I'm considering buying from a place I've never heard of.  I've dodged some real bullets that way.

    We were considering renting through, but decided that it was an unnecessary expense.  Most people will bring their own cameras, and we'll just print up cards that direct them to a central website where they can post all of their pictures.  (The card will also tell them to post the pictures to Facebook and tag us, since that's where all of my pictures end up anyway.)
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
