Monday March 14th
The personal bit:
We have a Finnish girl visiting until Thursday, so I may miss some stuff as we are out doing touristy things. We will for sure be spending Tuesday on Grouse Mountain, so I’ll need some ears to help me keep track of stuff!
New this week:
Beat Your Bills starts today on Virgin. If you haven’t entered the contest, go log in HERE and tell them which bill you’d like them to pay. It can be up to $1000 – they will just write you a cheque and you’ll have to pay it yourself, but they’ll give you the money for it! SWEET!! Again they’ve gotten their dates mixed up – it says it started at 7:10 on March 11th (last Friday) but it actually starts March 14th (Monday). So with that in mind, it may or may not end on April 8th (Friday). There will be 80 names called – I hope one is yours! If you might miss some of the times, let me know and I’ll call you if it’s your name. Send your info to email@example.com.
Also on Virgin, Remo will have tickets to the International Auto Show. People who win these tickets will be in for the grand prize – a 2 night getaway Predator Ridge in Vernon, including a round of golf, $100 to the restaurant, and car rental. Nice prize!!!
QMFM has a similar prize – the tickets to the Vancouver International Auto Show – but their grand prize is a 3 night trip to Big White including dinner for 2, car rental, and a hiking tour. Wow!
TSN also has the Auto Show tickets, and a Focal Car Audio System (as a grand prize? Not sure.)
Virgin is sending someone to the Juno’s in Calgary on April 3rd, including hotel and a meet & greet with Alessia Cara. Go HERE to enter for that. If that’s not your thing, enter HERE for an 8 day trip along our coast.
QMFM’s Beat the Bank is in its third week. Last week there was $34,250 in the vaults and winners took home $10,075. The 11am play is still tricky for me (especially with the Beat Your Bills name happening at 11:10!) so if you hear it, please let me know what happened so I can keep the list up to date!
Just a reminder – you can’t have won ANYTHING from ANY Bell station in the last 30 days if you want to play Beat The Bank. So if they Beat Your Bills, you can’t play Beat The Bank. And if you play Beat The Bank, they won’t Beat Your Bills.
Jack’s Name Those Tunes game continues. Will they start re-using playlists this week? Play along and find out! Play at 8, 12, and 4. They take the 96th texter to 969007.
Jack’s Win at Work will be going on until May. If I haven’t got you on my list of “people to call if I hear their name”, shoot me an email and I’ll add you: firstname.lastname@example.org. And go enter the contest HERE – maybe you’ll hear your name and win $100 or $250 or $500 or $5000! But remember – you have to call back within 30 minutes to win.
Interestingly, I was called on Friday by the firm running Win At Work. They were checking my info to make sure it was right, and told me to listen “starting Monday”. I said “but the contest started already!” and she said that only the people who they’ve called are in the draw. Huh. So if they haven’t called you to confirm your phone number and stuff, you weren’t in the draw for the past few weeks? HUH!!! So many times I’ve called the person only to find “they don’t work here anymore” – did these people get called before their names were put in the draw? I have a feeling this is a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing…
JRFM has the Artist of the Day. When you hear a song by the artist, text “WIN” followed by your name to 88000. DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME! It happens multiple times each day. I’m not even going to talk about You Can’t Win This. Smh. Rme (I totally made that up. It stands for Roll My Eyes. LOL!)
Kiss Radio gave away $10,000 on Friday at about 5:30. Very exciting. A new round of Back-To-Back Bieber starts today (but probably won’t play this week, I’m guessing).
ZFX: *sigh* I have asked everyone I know. Nobody knows. I’ll keep updating my guesses on the ZFX post…
Rock 101’s Cheque or Cherokees continues.
CFOX is giving away their 9th trip to Mexico this morning. There are 9 people in the draw.
Check back later for updates!
