Hi - just received a call from a company saying that I "won" the door prize at the Bridal Show that I recently attended. I had to listen to her go over the list of gifts that I "won" and could choose options from. It was clear that it was not a straight door-prize win, but a marketing lead generation technique, which always sound kind of scam-my.
The three prizes I "won" were: 1) Bands from JVL Jewelry OR a 3-Day 2-Night vacation to Wyndam Resorts in either Jamaica, DR or Bahamas (or slightly closer to home locations such as Vegas, Carribbean, etc. 2) $1000 in Grocery Manufacturers Coupons 3) 20-40% Bridal Household products (apparently the company who runs this process.)
The "catch" is that my fiancee and I have to attend a Bridal Household products evaluation at a nearby hotel and agree to a "time slot" for this - immediately. She gave me the option of "tonight" or "tomorrow" in order to "release" the prizes to us, and we BOTH have to attend, in-person. She said that this was "in order to ensure it's the right person".
There is no way in heck we are going to attend or make time for this. However, I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through with the whole process, and in fact, ever did get bands, or a vacation or all those coupons.
Any similar experiences?
Good luck to all the couples out there, this whole bridal process can be overwhelming!
