Just call me a liar...



  You know the contests you see on T.V. where, when you buy a specific product, you may have a chance at winning a fabulous prize.  The popular tag line is "MANY will enter, only ONE will win!"  I have always told my kids that they are nothing but schemes.  Wednesday I had to run to Target and just happened to see that there was a new sour yogo fruit snack on sale so I picked up a couple of boxes. (my family loves anything sour) Tate had been seeing the commercials for a contest they were running and quickly ripped the boxes open.  The first revealed the usual "Sorry, you are not a winner."  The second revealed a $5.oo Discover card!  Apparently there are 43,000 $5.oo cards and we managed to find one -which split between 3 kids is $1.67 each.    I am afraid this will only encourage contest purchases in the future!
