Big Money

You know those car dealership ads that you get in the mail and usually just throw away?  The ones that say "You could win a car or BIG money!"  Well, last week I was feeling kinda lucky and scratched off the code to see that I was a winner.  (oh yeah!)  I decided that is was about time I won $25,000, so I took me and my crazy self down to the car dealership to collect my earnings.  I'm being so serious...I really did this.  And took my dad with me because, hello(?!) I needed an escort to the bank with all the cash I was going to get.  

The man handed me a Wal Mart gift card.  Okay...I can work with this.  Free diapers for life!!!  Called to check out my balance.

$3.

Really?  Not even $5?  Thanks for putting my kid through college, Car Dealership.

are you serious?!?! Three dollars?!!? Oh, man. That's so ridiculous. Does that even get you a gallon of gas anymore? I don't know what gas prices in the US are.
At least you got a cute pic out of the deal!!

Wow! Really that is just bad press for that dealership. Do they really want people leaving thinking they are that cheap and that big of scam artists!?!

Sam Morgan said...

$3? Was that even worth their time of buying the Walmart gift card?

Laura Burtis said...
