If you have a PayPal account you may have recently received an email from them saying you can win £40000 if you shop with PayPal. This is indeed a promotion they have recently launched to encourage people to shop with PayPal in a bid to win a UK year’s salary of £40,000. Find out more about the promotion and read the terms here.
In short, all you have to do is buy something with PayPal. By doing that you automatically enter into the weekly prize draw. The more you buy the higher chance you get to win. So…
Let’s say you won. What would you do with forty thousand pounds?
It may sound a bit mainstream, but I would probably invest this money into a property somewhere in a booming country and buy a proper car on what’s left. You know, basic stuff. Property because it’s nice to know the money is working for you when you sleep and the car because I don’t have one at the moment. Well, OK, if I could find a small island in an archipelago, maybe I would buy it instead. Simple things. If I was really in a god mood, instead of all these, I would build a school for poor kids somewhere in Africa. Looking forward to hear about the lucky winners to see what they would do with the money.
Some shops are official partners of the promotion, so there is a good reason to start with them. There is a goos choice of laptops including MacBook Air at Dabs.com, variety of monitors at Ebuyer, amazing gifts for any taste at Firebox, home computers and servers at HP, iPhone 4 and other gadgets at I Want One Of Those and sound systems, including my favorite – Creative – at Richer Sounds.
