Sounds nice if you can afford to throw away $100. Great deal if you won it though. I guess it would pay off if you were the ones' hosting this contest.
Can you imagine the money that is being raked in on this one? It will more than pay for the house. That gives me ideas for when I go to sell my house. Everyone wants something for nothing....or next to nothing. I'm sure that there are a lot of suckers that would take me up on it. The big question is.....what are the odds of winning it? Probably about like the lottery.

Not like the lottery at all! If they are only allowing 3,00 people to enter the contest, then your odds of winning are 1 in 3,000. Not great odds, but nowhere NEAR lottery odds.=)
