Prize disappointment!

April 25, 2012

Today I received an email from an unknown person informing me that one of my recent prize winners had sold their prize on eBay. They provided me with the link and low and behold there was the prize in question. Upon looking into their feedback and recent transactions I noted a few items in their recent sales that were probably other competition prizes.

I’m so disappointed!

I know I have no control over what someone does with a prize once they receive it but I’m just so appointed. If they did not want or were going to use the prize then why enter? I know it was only a small prize but it is the principle of it.

I, myself enter competitions, however I enter to win prizes for my children or my family. These prizes allow me to give extra treats or put away for birthdays/Christmas etc.

I am now wondering if my hard work in arranging giveaways is wasted…

Do all people enter competitions just to make a quick buck on eBay?

Am I wrong in thinking people enter competitions because they want the prize?
Would you care if a winner sold one of your prizes?

How do you feel? 

I’d love to hear your thoughts…

    Oh goodness. That is sad to hear. Personally i only enter competitions for prizes that interest me and my family.
    Not everyone is shallow like the winner of your prize sellin to make a quick buck. The majority of people are genuine and appreciate the hard work you go to to achieve the fab prizes you do.
    Keep up the great work
