Beat Me to Barbados!

Posted on Feb 9, 2015

If the Beat were a celebrity, she’d be Mariah Carey – a glitzy, high maintenance diva with big bucks! Lots of flash but a little phony. Probably difficult and bitchy in the morning. Even so, adored by millions and very good at what she does.

And Beat does contests very, very well.

I am astounded by the enormity of this contest.

Each prize is worth $6422 and there are 25 prizes. That’s over $160,000 in prizes! Ho. Ly. Crap.

Here are the things you need to know:

The trip is from Sat April 11th to Sat April 18th, or you can go Sun the 12th to Sun the 19th if it’s better for you. Those are your two options; don’t try to win if you can’t travel on those dates!

If you are able to travel those dates and would like to go, try to be caller 25 when you hear the cue to call at 8:10, 9:10, 10:10, 11:10, 12:10, 1:10, 2:10, 3:10, 4:10, 5:10, 6:10, and 7:10.

There will be 12 people in the next morning’s draw. You have a one in twelve chance of winning. That’s RIDICULOUSLY good odds!!! The draw will be done between 6:30 and 7am each morning, starting Tuesday the 10th.

Now, this part is important: if you are in the draw and your name is drawn, you MUST answer the phone when they call you! In the rules it says if you don’t answer when they call, they will draw another name and keep doing so until someone answers their phone. So whatever you do, do NOT be in the shower between 6:30 and 7:10 if you’re in the draw!

This is also important: you can’t have won ANYTHING from the Beat in the previous 30 days. They have changed their rules on the website (again) and even if you’ve only won movie passes or concert tickets, you are ineligible for this contest! Shiiiiiiiiit!!!

It didn’t state in the rules that you can’t qualify more than once, so if you qualify but don’t win, you can qualify again. And again. And again. Unless they tell us otherwise.

So for the next few weeks, my sole purpose in life will be to get into the draw for one of these trips. I don’t even have to win, I want to be in a draw just ONCE and dream about winning! I would LOVE to join some of you on this once-in-a-lifetime trip!!!
