I Won!


This came in by courier today. Totoo palang nanalo ako ng HP Mini for using HP original inks. ('Kala ko scam.) Thanks, HP Rewards!

Here's my take on how or why I won. It might work for you too!

When I replaced my empty cartridges with original HP inks, a prompt appeared that led me to HP Rewards, where there was a choice between getting discount vouchers at Store Specialists or joining a raffle.

Since I've never had any luck in raffles I never bothered about what's at stake there and chose to get the discount vouchers instead. HP Rewards emailed them to me promptly. 

I realized however that the discount vouchers were useless unless I spend (on things I probably don't need), so on the next prompt I chose to enter the raffle and expected nothing will come out of it.

So when I got the call from someone at HP Rewards saying I won I was 99% skeptical and 1% peeved that of the millions of people who can be chosen to test a scam on, I get picked. That feeling remain unchanged even when the notice of my win arrived by mail.

Yesterday I got a call again from HP advising me of today's delivery and asked that I prepare a copy of my ID. 

So did I? Nah. I had my ID photocopied only when the courier was already at the gate with my HP Mini today.

I figured maybe more people choose to get the discount vouchers (sure win, superficially) over joining the raffle. Maybe I was the only one who joined the raffle over a period so I won. :)

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
