Wendy's is running a contest to win a Wii and Wii related products and today I won a Wii through the free method to enter!
http://wendys.eprize.net/winawii/alt .

The contest ends 7/31 so I have to wait 6-8 weeks after the contest ends to get it.

I was surprised, I've been entering through the free entry method since the contest started. I can't stop grinning [Big Grin]

You're actually the first person I've ever encountered who's actually won something from the free entry method.

Congratulations!

Congrats Bibo [Big Grin]
Be careful though, Wii Sports is addictive.

Now I'm jealous. I shouldn't, as I don't enter contests and thus have no chance to win anything, but I went shopping yesterday hoping to find one, and couldn't. The Toys 'R Us clerk told me they had some in stock for some days the previous week, but they were now all out. So I'm still without a Wii. [Frown] (There were none at the FutureShop, and I don't shop at BestBuy - I just dislike them.)

But still, congrats to you! [thumbsup]

Worth an edit: I'm not jealous anymore. I just found one - and bought it! Now, I just have to hook it up and play!

I was going to fill out the online form like Bibo did, but there's a section there that requires you to input your cell phone number and agree to receive text messages (and their associated costs). I have text messaging turned off on my phone, but even if I didn't, how can you stop receiving those messages after they start?

Oh. I just looked at the form again. The asterisks - unlike 99.9% of other forms - mean that info is optional. Oy! Why did they have to be different and reverse the traditional system?

Hmmm, so people will fill it in without thinking, maybe?

Wow. I think that's the first time I've ever seen someone win one of those contests [Smile]

Congratulations!

I would be jealous but I just bought a Wii from a friend of mine, virtually new. However, I am jealous that you got yours for free. [Big Grin]
Now I wonder what I will do for the time I am not playing World of Warcraft? Sleep? Eat? Work? Play Wii SPorts? Watch what happens, I'll be spending all my time playing WoW and Wii. LOL [crazy] Sleep, eat, who needs to do that? [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

That is so bizarre, yet extraordinarily cool! I never thought they actually ever put prizes in the "Free to Enter" zone, but here is proof it actually happens.

Now I just have to patiently wait for it to arrive. I too have been trying to get my hands on a Wii. A few weeks ago a coworker found 2 of them at a superstore but I could not afford to get the other one. Glad I couldn't get it then. Time to go buy Zelda for the Wii!

Great news! I didn't get a Wii, but I was happy with my magnetic Mario toy! [Smile]

I once saw a black Hummer with the Mountain Dew slogan "Do the Dew" on the side that was being given away by Taco Bell as part of a Star Wars promotion.

To my excitement my Wii arrived this week, perfect timing for the long upcoming holiday weekend! Odd thing is the prize fulfillment center was only 5 miles away from my home. Gonna have to get the new Metroid that is being released on the 28th. I also now know how out of shape I'm in just from playing Wii Sports and Wii Play [blush]
