Tuesday the 20th

Posted on Jan 20, 2015

Well crap. Turns out Blue Monday was a real thing! Or maybe it’s all just in my head. Nonetheless, it was a crap day. On the bright side, I called Telus and they’re coming to hook up my landline. WOOT! But not until Sunday, so I’m going to miss out on a ton of stuff. Blah.

Z95.3 gave away $10,000 at 8am on Monday. Ten. Thousand. Dollars. We had 4 phones going (2 cell phones, the landline, and Fongo on my iPad) and didn’t get through a single time. Not once. Nada. I redialed for 45 minutes straight and my ass fell asleep. If I’d known it was going to take that long to get through 95 callers I would’ve given my daughter more than Cheerios for her lunch! I was too busy redialing to make a sandwich!!!

Also on Zed at 6:35am, call in to win a 4 pack of passes to the Vancouver Aquarium by guessing what song is playing underwater. Cruise said it was difficult but it was soooooo easy. Everyone who wins this week is in the draw for a trip to Hawaii. This would’ve been a great time to have a Telus landline… *sigh*…

JRFM – Red Solo Cup. Listen at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7. Be the lucky caller (random) and guess which cup the trip to Vegas is under. Before you call, check my Red Solo Cup Guesses post (HERE) to see which ones have been guessed. The Waking Crew got their first winner yesterday – they were almost as excited as Linda was! LOL!

Also on JRFM, they are giving away Eric Church tickets with the Song of the Day. At 8:10 (ish), call in to give them the EC song of the day. If they choose your song, you get tickets. Then when they play the song later during Barbara Beam’s show (9-2), the first person through will also win tickets.

Beat – if you’ve signed up for Beat Your Bills and want me to call you if I hear your name, send me your name and phone number to I will text or call you if your name is said.

The Beat also announced a new contest where you get to pay it forward to an “unsung hero” – nominate yourself or someone you know for an all-inclusive trip. They have 5 to give away and will be doing draws from all entries each day next week. Go to their site to enter.

CFOX – the Jeff O’Neil Show will have tickets to give away to their Big Ass Football Party at the Hard Rock Casino. They also have WWE and Hip tickets. They have Big Sugar tix during midday show, and tix to Whitehorse during the afternoon show. Evening show has Ministry tickets. They will also be giving away Easy Money throughout the day whenever you hear the Band of the Day.

Jack FM’s Text of the Morning gets WWE tickets. Kenny has Tragically Hip tickets during the midday show. You could win your way into their football party this week (not sure when), or you could win dinner on a boat with Big Ginger. Fun! You can qualify for that twice per day.

Breakfast Television will have some Reebok swag (shoes, top and pants). Enter to win at 6:10, 7:10, and 8:10.

Peak has lots of concert tickets throughout the day.

There’s a station in the Valley called Star 98.3 who is having a win-a-trip contest. You can only enter if you can hear their station on a regular radio – so probably Abbotsford and Chilliwack and Hope? Maybe the Island, I’m not sure. Anyway, if you GET that station on your radio, you are eligible to win. Go to their site to get the details. They are owned by the same people as Jack FM, Sonic, and News 1130, so they also have a club where you can get points and such. So if you have that station, good luck to you!
