April 28 – May 2 Major Contests
There is ONE big thing starting up this week that I know of, and that is The Beat’s Beat Your Bills. You tell them which bill you need paid, and maybe they’ll pay it! Three times per weekday, at 7:10, 11:10, and 3:10, a name will be called. They have 15 minutes to call the station back. If they call back in time, The Beat will pay whichever bill was submitted. I asked for $1000 for my Visa. You should too!! 😀
Continued from last week:
QMFM – Nat and Drew are giving away $1000 to caller 25 at 7:05(ish) and 8:05(ish) each day this week. It’s fast and easy, though I’ve only gotten through once (caller 20). If the phone is still ringing when they start talking, don’t hang up! They answer that last call live!
Sonic – they are still taking qualifiers for the Escape until May 9th, so get in on that at 8:10, 12:10, 4:10, and 8:10. That’s one of the many things I like about Sonic – they spread the prizes out throughout the day, so no matter what shift you work, you can always win something! Love that.
Also on Sonic, Kid’s $1000 Tag Team Trivia. This is so great! The questions are relatively easy, and if you are caller #1 you can still pass on a question. But the danger is that the 2nd caller doesn’t have to share the money with you if they win! Oooooooh… you just never know…. On the very first game, caller 2 didn’t share and caller 1 got screwed even though they answered 4 out of the 5 questions! I would share…if I could ever get through!!!
Z95.3 – the dreaded sound effect. BLARGH!!! What IS that?!?! I think it’s an alarm clock being wound up, but it could be a lot of other things too. Take your guess at 8, 12, and 5 each day, the jackpot goes up by $200 every time it’s guessed wrong. The week starts off with $1400 to be won!
CFOX is sending listeners to LA to see two concerts – Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden. This is a great prize – flights, hotel, concert tickets, AND spending money! Qualify for the weekly draw at 7, 9, 12, 3, and 5.
Rock 101 is no slouch – they have the best contests in town! This time they are loading up a plane full of listeners and taking them all to Vegas for the Billy Joel concert. Seriously! How freaking awesome would THAT be?!?! Just listen for Billy Joel’s “Big Shot” and be the 10th caller when the song ENDS. And start packing!!!
JRFM – the You Say It We Pay It game is still going on. I’m trying to vote but most of the time I forget, and the one time I thought of it on Saturday, the site was down. What a drag… I would be royally annoyed if I was begging for votes and then the site went down when people finally found some time to vote! I still try to find the person whose name they call, but my heart isn’t in it anymore… Please let it be over soon!
Shore’s waters are calm at the moment… Perhaps still waters run deep?
The Peak is getting two new DJs in the coming weeks – Kevin and Sonia from Kelowna will be joining the morning crew. I’m not sure if they will have their own show or be sidekicks, but I hope they get a shot at being a Dynamic Duo. No disrespect meant to whoever is holding down the fort till they get there… And with new DJ’s comes new contests! The iPad-A-Day-in-May contest starts on May 1st. I will start a Peak post and list all the band names that I catch at the end of each day.
Jack FM is spinning the Wheel of Winning. My term of endearment is the Wheel of Binning. I love, love, LOVE Jack FM, but I don’t love, love, LOVE this contest. Most of the prizes aren’t worth driving in for, though one of our readers DID win $250, and someone else won $1000. So….are the prizes replenished every week or two?? I’d hate to think that all the good ones are gone already…
