    Hey All,

    Don't know if you've seen, but HGTV is giving away a "Smart Home", a new Mercedes and $100,000 cash (presumably to pay the taxes on the home in case you win). You get two chances to win, when you sign up for the first entry, it gives you a link to the second. Also, after the first entry, there is a link to enter a Quicken Loans sweepstake.

    "Enter twice online per day for your chance to win the tech-savvy HGTV Smart Home 2015, a modern Austin farmhouse located in the historic Zilker Park neighborhood of Austin, TX, plus a 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and a $100,000 cash prize provided by national mortgage lender Quicken Loans. A grand prize valued at over $1 million."

    Quicken Loans is also giving away mortgage payments for a year.

    I guess I really shouldn't tell you about this, because the fewer people who enter, the greater my chances of winning. :D But I guess a few more entries won't matter since HGTV's been advertising this on TV!! :confused:

    Here's the link to enter:

    I saw the ad last night on TV. Guess it's worth a shot. Fantastic prizes and they do this every year I believe.

    Yes they do. I believe they actually give awayfour different homes each year. The big one is their Dream Home. Then they have this one, the Smart Home, a Green Home and another called Urban Oasis. I've been entering for a few years now, but have yet to win, so this just has to be my year!! ;)

    I always enter for the dream home, blog cabin, and green home. Somebody else always wins.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about the Blog Cabin. So that makes, what, 5 houses a year and I've entered every year for, let's say, 6 years. That's 30 chances to win. I was never good at math, but I mean come on, isn't it me my turn to win next?? :confused:

    I don't think I've even won anything more than a $50 gift certificate at the local Hallmark store, and that was 25 years ago. I'm just not one of those lucky people.

    How about you guys, anybody won something cool and awesome you'd like to brag about?

    I have never entered the drawings, I am not that lucky person that seems to win all kinds of things. I don't do the lottery because it would feel like I am giving my money away most of the time. Good luck to all that enter, some body has to win right!

    I always enter the lottery. As long as you have a ticket you can dream about what you'd do with all the many millions of dollars. Without a ticket you don't have the dream.

    I always enter their sweepstakes. DIY Network has some good ones as well, and sometimes the Travel Channel and I believe it's the Food Network also have sweepstakes with interesting prizes. I have been entering the $25 Grand in Your Hand sweepstakes on HGTV, too. You can't win if you don't enter!

    I have entered the dream home a few times. Usually its when the home catches my attention. However, I never win the drawing, which isn some ways could be a blessing in disguse. I have done research online about these homes and it turns out the majority of people who have won them along the way, aren't living in them any longer. Apparenlty the expense of keeping the place up was more then they could handle and they decided that selling it was more profitable for them in the end. I have never entered for the smart home or the green home.

    I'd be o.k. with selling it. The homes are really nice, but if I won, the house might not necessarily be my style, so I wouldn't mind selling it and using the proceeds to buy something smaller, pay off some debt, and bank a little money to help with future expenses.
