Free Stuff and a Contest

December 14th, 2006 at 02:14 pm

Recent haul of free goodies that came in the mail:

-Dove deoderant
-Luna breakfast bar (which tastes absolutely HORRIBLE- don't buy it!)
-Downy fabric softener
-some feminine products
-Pills for lactose intolerance
-Razors (what happened to them just having simple names? Why must it be like Mach XXXXL or Vibrance GTO? Razors are starting to sound like car models)

And....I won a contest! Sadly, I declined the prize. I somehow won $300 towards (get this) laser hair removal. This woman from a hair removal clinic called several times to try and schedule me to come into one of the clinics in the city, but I wanted to know prices first. So she asked what hair I wished to remove (tehe) and I picked the smallest area I could think of - eyebrows. Well, after asking her several times (she'd avoid direct answers) not only did I find out that EACH session was about $300, but I'd have to go in for multiple (4) treatments to get rid of my sparse facial fuzz. So in the end, that $300 doesn't go towards much. The woman was defiinitely trying to push me, so I nicely told her, Thanks but no thanks. Better for me to let the prize go to someone who wants it!

    umm...a prize? or a scam? Wow, very wise of you to persistently dig for the true cost of that you could step over the insistence and graciously decline their 'generous' gift. (aka...BS!))

    i spent lots of $$ on laser hair removal and it seems to have all grown back. Not worth it unless you have $$ to burn

    Edit: Well this a cute typo which was originally a corrrection of another typo. It is seasonal anyhow.
