For those of you that don’t believe in entering contests and raffles… I won a free iPad mini from the post office raffle! Woo-hoo!! 😀 I picked it up from the post office today and admired the nice and shiny box. iPad mini, white & silver, Wi-Fi, 16 GB. This thing retails for CHF 379, and I got it for FREE. How awesome is that?
Unfortunately, I had just bought myself a Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 not too long ago, and next Tuesday when my phone contract comes up for renewal, I’m thinking of buying a Samsung GALAXY Note II… so I probably don’t need another device. But it’s still cool to win something. (爸爸, see… there IS such a thing as a free lunch.)
The last time I won something in Zürich was in May 2011, when I entered a contest for Orange and got a Blu-ray of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows… which is still wrapped in plastic. I’ll get around to watching it one day. Maybe.
So I guess all the email and text messaging spam have been worth it to actually win something of substance. What a pity I can’t use it though. I’m going to check if anyone in my family wants this, or else I guess I’ll put it up for sale.
