Coming up!

Posted on Oct 25, 2014

The upcoming week is chock-full of goodness! I wonder if the radio stations know that their contests are my life-line – without them I wouldn’t have any goals (other than raising responsible and socially aware children, blah, blah, blah)…

Z95.3 has upped their game – not only are they giving away bucket-loads of cash with Gold Digger, they are also awarding $2000 for a music video (I already submitted mine and it is cheeeeeeeesyyyyyyyy!!!). Not only that, this week I noticed that they are even playing a wee gambling game on Facebook – guess if they dynamite will blow and you could win$250 for guessing correctly. Then there’s the 1K Weekend Artist game, where you could win $1000 every Monday. AND then head to their site HERE and enter the contest for Reverse Trick or Treating – they could show up at your house on Halloween with treats and $1000! Such fun!!!

Speaking of Zed’s awesomeness, I see that they are posting selfies of the people who win on Gold Digger – I LOVE IT!!! It’s nice to SEE who’s winning and how happy they are. Some day you might see MY picture… 😀

Next up: The Beat

Three things of note are happening on Beat this week:

1) caller 25 will receive a $250 e-transfer at 11:10, 1:10, 4:10, and 7:10.

2) One Direction tickets are up for grabs at 2:10, 5:10, 6:10, and 8:10.

3) At 8:10am, caller 94 will be heading to an all-inclusive in Mexico with the Gleesome Threesome in January! If you call in, make sure you are free to travel between January 3rd and 10th. You will also have a chance to enter online between November 21st and 23rd. Watch for the link (I’ll post it if I find it) and enter once per day. I can already feel the sand between my toes… *I wish*

It’s worth noting that I didn’t see anything in the rules about having won in the previous 30 days, so if you win the $250 e-transfer, you can probably still technically win the trip.

I think QMFM drained the bank and is taking a breather. You can win One Direction tickets at 9:05, 11:05, and 3:05. At 8:05 you can win $100 gift card for Cineplex (that’s about 2 dates with snacks!) if you can guess which scary movie they are acting out while on helium. LOL! That will be funny! I might listen in just for THAT!

The Peak is giving away that cool van at the Black Keys concert! You can still win a key this week if you listen for those back-to-back Black Keys songs at:

7:35 – 7:55am and 7:40 – 8pm on Monday
8:50 – 9:10am and 4:45 – 5:05pm on Tuesday
7:10 – 7:30am and 2:22 – 2:42pm on Wednesday

Jack does the draw for the Antigua trip on Monday at 8:10. If you’re in the draw, be listening! You only get 9 minutes to call them back, or they choose another winner. If you don’t win, you can start qualifying for the NEXT draw at 9:40. The Win at Work schedule continues, so I guess the super-secret contest will go on for at least another week. I’m sure the whole promotions crew is having a good laugh watching me trying to decipher the names they call out. LOL! I’ve noticed that 75% of the time I call someone at work to tell them I heard their name, the people are OFF that day. Coincidence? Hmmmmm…

LG104.3 is giving away Fleetwood Mac tickets to caller 4 when you hear back-to-back Mac songs. I will be listening for these – hubby missed out on FM last time so I’d love to take him. He turned 50 this year and he’s feeling his age – it’s time to have some fun!

JRFM is playing the Lotto again! I don’t really get this game, I wasn’t tuned in last time they played it. From what I gather, you call in at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7, and give them your list of 7 numbers between 1 and 93. Then on Monday at 8:10, they will call out 7 numbers. If YOUR numbers match the 7 numbers, you win $5000! Holy SHIT, I could really use $5000!!! What I don’t understand is where do they GET their 7 numbers? Are they using 7 numbers that were given to them by the listeners, ensuring that one of the people who called in the previous week wins $5000 for SURE? Or are they just drawing 7 numbers from a hat and MAYBE one of the callers will win? If it’s the latter, it’s pretty safe to say that NO one will win $5000. I can’t imagine that being the case, so I’m going to assume that the numbers they call out are going to be the exact numbers that one of their listeners gave them. So JRFM and Canadian Direct Insurance are giving away $15,000 over the next 3 weeks – nice!

I’m going to enter my 7 lucky numbers through my Online Insider account and cross my fingers. Of course, I will TRY to get through on the phone, but I won’t hold my breath.

Rock 101’s cash or car continues until Nov 21st. What percentage of people are taking the cash instead of the car? Would you say it’s about 50/50?

TSN1040 is giving away $1000 each day on the Bro Jake show! All you have to do is call and tell them all about the Ultimate Grey Cup party you would host if you had $1000 to do it. Would you set up an outdoor theatre and order pizzas for all your neighbours? Would you reserve a section at a pub and order bottomless beers and snacks? Would you hire some cheerleaders and have them dancing in your livingroom? Would you rent a hotel room downtown and order in so you could watch the game ALONE in your underwear??? (I would totally do THAT!!!) Whatever your pleasure, let Bro Jake know and you could win the $1000, plus be entered into a draw at the end of the week for ANOTHER $1000. Imagine the party you could have with THAT! You could fly to Vegas and watch the game somewhere cool!

Sonic’s Million Dollar Monday is on-going, and CFOX will probably announce a new contest this week.

I will update the schedule daily with the Jack Win at Work songs. If I miss stuff, please let me know!

Happy winning!!!
