Posted on Oct 27, 2019

I got through for Virgin’s trips a few times again last week. Caller 68 and caller 75. Alas, it was not meant to be.

Just as that ZFX win was not meant to be mine. Despite best efforts, I was unable to nab ANY ZFX jackpot. What a bummer of a ZFX season – only THREE sounds and the last one was confounding. After that devastating final ZFX game on Tuesday, I wrote a post and you can read all about my angst HERE.

That loss stung, especially after an entire summer of trying to milk the Zillionaire and having no luck there either. I always say even if I lose, I’m happy for whoever does win. But this loss was shattering and it’s taken me all week to recover. It wasn’t until yesterday that I even found out who won that jackpot and it turns out I know her! So now that I’ve licked my wounds, I can truly be happy for the winner – she’s super nice and if I couldn’t win it then I’m glad it was her. Massive congrats!!!

I’m still texting in for Leslie and Scooter’s group trip even though I know they will never call my name. I think I have some weird disorder which prevents me from giving up. I’m eternally hopeful. How odd…

JR has another problematic montage and the pot is over $1000 already.

CFOX has sent Mr. Fox to South America. Though he’s not at Machu Pichu, how cool would it be to see THAT?! Good luck to you if you are trying for that trip.

Newsletter subscribers:

The link and password for JR’s montage are in the newsletter. I didn’t have time to update the post last week but I’ll be trying to update it more often this week.

My guess for Mr. Fox’s location is also in the newsletter.

This Week:

QMFM is taking a bunch of listeners on vacation with them! They are taking caller 25 at 8:05 each weekday. Travel will be from January 18th to the 25th so only play if you can travel then. It’s a family friendly resort but winner’s travel guest must be 19 years old. That means if you bring the kids, they have to travel on a separate agenda – hopefully you can get them on the same flight as you. I think I would not be taking the kids this time – Mommy needs an adult vacay!

Not to be outdone, Kiss also has a trip! They actually have FOUR trips and will be giving them away on the next four Fridays. Listen daily at 7, 9, 12 and 4 for that day’s code word. Write it down but don’t text it in. Collect the words – one each day (Mon – Thurs). Then on Friday at about 9am they will give the cue to text. You have TWO minutes to text in the phrase (the four words you collected over the week) and some random texter will win an all-inclusive trip to Riu Vallarta. ONE text per person please. Winner and guest must both be 19 or older. Travel is valid until September 2020 with some blackout dates but Sunwing only flies directly YVR – PVR from November 1st to April 26th so if you travel outside those dates you will have to pay for your own connecting flights.

Also on Kiss, today is the last day you can log in HERE and enter to win tickets to see Last Christmas at Metrotown on Thursday November 14th. One of the 150 winners will win the grand prize – a $1000 shopping spree at Metrotown! The draw for the grand prize will take place before November 14th.

This week’s trip on Virgin is to an all-inclusive in Liberia Jose, Costa Rica. Travel anytime between January 6th and April 25th, 2020. That’s not a big window so be sure you can book time off if you want to win. Both travellers must be 19 years or older so no kiddos allowed. I’m totally into that!

Send Virgin your Halloween story HERE and you could win a $100 Visa gift card. Listen at 7:35 to hear if it’s your story read on air.

I think The Peak has run out of trips to give away but you can still win tickets to some great concerts. One of the things you can win is invites to see Current Swell in the Peak Lounge. Now’s your chance to get in to see one of these great, intimate concerts. And LOOK at these guys HERE – every one of them is smiling. SMILING! How unusual for a band to be showing such joy – I bet that’ll be a terrific concert! You should go. Log in HERE and enter for a pair of tickets which aren’t on the wheel…

Also not on the Peak Wheel, Big Sugar tickets. Enter for those HERE (looks like they are choosing a winner today but are still taking entries.) The contest for a 4 pack of tickets to Vancouver Giants also looks like it ends today so get your entry in HERE asap. Bedouin Soundclash tickets are HERE, contest ends at midnight tonight.

JR has tickets to Rascal Flatts and you can win them with Clay and Karen by playing a cute little game called What Hurts The Most. They will give a list of symptoms and you have to guess which ailment they are describing. Fun! LOL! They start with Row 5 tickets on Monday and go down to front row tickets on Friday.

Also on JR, you have two more days to enter for Tebey tickets so go enter HERE. Also enter for a weekend getaway to Silver Reef Casino HERE. The two Secret Word prizes are fantastic this week so remember to play for those too!

Over at The Breeze you can win tickets to see James Arthur. Log in and enter HERE (ends today.) Their contest for the Date Night Movie Night also ends today so go enter for that HERE. You still have a few days to enter for that trip to Punta Cana but only one entry per person. Enter HERE.

Zed also has those James Arthur tickets so log in and enter HERE before midnight tonight. Pick up a Zed sticker from Denny’s and follow the instructions on the back to enter HERE to win a trip to Disneyland.

Jack-o-lantern has tickets to Luzia, log in and enter for those HERE. Enter HERE for tickets to A Bowie Celebration and enter HERE for BC Lions tickets.

No need to log in over at CFOX to win beer HERE and also HERE you can enter for tickets to their Halloween party at the Commodore with Big Wreck.

Rock 101 also has tickets to that Big Wreck party on Halloween but to win your way in, you have to do more than just enter HERE; when they call you on Thursday you have to answer the phone, “Trick or treat!” or you don’t win. So all day long on Thursday, instead of saying, “hello” say “trick or treat” just in case…

London Drugs has a $1000 baby gift basket for Rock 101 listeners – go enter for that HERE.

This is the last week for 101’s Taste The World and the final winner will be announced next Monday. It’s been a real bummer to be locked out of this contest for the past month and I can’t wait for it to be over. I look forward to a new contest starting next month – something new to talk about!
