I've been a longtime member here at Slickdeals. My brother introduced me a long time ago and have been hooked (addicted?) sense. They didn't have contest every day back then but was always a favorite of mine. Now, I enter every contest, not really expecting to win; mostly out of habit. Slickdeals has saved me tons of money over the reals. Never did I expect to win....
How could I not love Slickdeals? I was very surprised and lucky to be selected as the winner. How far I've come since the beginning. My Mom, sister and numerous friends visit regularly (mostly lurk). I never think I'm deserving of such a gift but look at it as good deeds returned.
I took the cash instead of the Smart Car and put it down on a new vehicle we were going to buy as I start my family. Timing could not have been better. My wife picked out a new 2013 Subaru Outback
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
btw, I told my boss it was snowing. He said "All this snow. I wonder if it's memory snow like in Dr. Who?". Somehow I think you would like him.
On a side note, could not get DH to watch Doctor Who, he said he couldn't get into it after only watching two episodes. That is until everyone on his team started talking about the various episodes recently. Now he's watching them so he won't be left out. Secretly though, I think he got hooked now that he has finally watched episodes 3 and 4, just like I said he would all that time ago.
2) I am very happy to see a long-time contributing member win (for once). Especially on such a great prize.
3) Wise choice on the $$ over the Smart Car.
4) I'm also very shocked that they sent you the full $10,000. I would have thought that they would be required to withhold some amount of federal taxes.
5) Since they didn't take anything out, and I'm sure you know this, but make sure you account for the fact that you're going to owe an extra $2-3k on this in a few months.
