Default I Won! but... Ooops!

Early in March I got a $25 American Express gift card in the mail. The
return address on the envelope said 'Weight Watchers'. I didn't bother to
read the letter; I figured this was a marketing gimmick and I'd have to use
it to sign up for Weight Watchers, so I shredded it.

Last week I got another letter in the mail stating the reference to Weight
Watchers was an error. The letter indicated I received the card because I
won first prize in the Hill's Science Diet Make a Difference Contest. Drat!
I shredded the card! I called the number on the letter. I was directed to
report the card as lost. I explained to the person I spoke with what
happened and he got a good laugh out of it. They're re-issuing the card.
Naturally I'll be using it to buy stuff for Persia Think of all the FF
$25 will buy! Whee!

LOL It wasn't just the person on the phone that got a good laugh out of
it. I hope Persia enjoys her treats.

Persia still only gets FF on Sunday so this will go a long way I can
wait until it goes on sale and get even more of it! I'm glad they took the
time to send me that second letter (and that I read it).

Congratulations! I'm glad they did a follow-up and will replace the card.
