Just typical of my luck

  1. I was fortunate enough to be drawn as a lucky winner of the TES Resources annual cinema pass promotion that was running in June.
    However, living in the *rse end of anywhere, the nearest cinema from this chain is 100 miles from my city.

    Could you maybe sell it on, Cass?
    I'd offer, but I'm 60 miles from the nearest cinema. [​IMG]

    The uselessness is in the prize.

    That is very annoying and also very thoughtless of them - you would think they would pick a prize that isnt only available to certain people. It may be worth you contacting them and telling them how chuffed you are to win but how peeved that you can't actually use the prize through no fault of your own. Anyway - congrats!

    You were not a lucky winner but an unlucky winner, as the prize is a dud one. Tell TES it's useless and see if they can't find something else for you.

    Yes, let them know, Cassandra.
  8. I do seem like an ungrateful so and so. I was thrilled to actually win something!
    However I have written to ask if there might the possibility of an alternative prize.
    I thought they'd beaten me to it as I noticed a message in my inbox. However, it was a warning about my avatar, which (after 4 years with no problems) apparently contravenes the T & C. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned my disappointment with the prize.
    So, goodbye Slash[​IMG]
