I am like the 99% of people in the world who never win anything. But, this time I actually won a prize. I guess the saying "You can't win if you don't play" is true.
Back in February I received an email from Mazerati. It was an announcement of a campaign called "This is how I Maserati". It was easy to enter, just click a link. And the qualifications were pretty simple "Tell us your Maserati story". So, I did. The registration page said they would be drawing a name and giving away a prize each week.
A few weeks later I received another email. This time from Jim Ellis Maserati of Atlanta and it said I had won a prize. In fact I was the first prize winner in the contest. They gave me a link to the Maserati catalogue. OOooh La La were those items amazing. But...they also gave me a limit.
I searched that catalogue about 10 times trying to find something that I really loved that fit into the budget they gave me. I had no luck. That's because I had already seen the gift I wanted and nothing else would compare. So, I emailed them back and told them my dilemma. I offered to pay the extra money to cover the total price of the gift I really wanted. To my surprise they said, "No need, we will give you the gift you want. What is it?"
OK, I won't keep you in suspense. Click the link below to view my unveiling of the Maserati prize I won. Thanks Jim Ellis Maserati!
