Internet used to be just a way for me to connect to people and play games but that all changed when time by time my wife receives random deliveries may it be from other bloggers or different companies. It got me curious and asked her what’s going on. That’s when i knew that she’s been joining some promos online. Just hearing the word raffle or promo was enough to make me cringe and would instantly utter the words ” I have no luck”. But that all changed when i mustered enough courage to try and join a promo. Read on for my Winning Story.
My #WinningStory started when i won a piece of soap from an online promo. Yes, a piece of soap. I was thankful nevertheless as it gave me a clean start in my way of thinking that online promos are fake. The excitement of joining and cravings for winning made me exert extra efforts. My free time used to browse online turned into free stuff. The prizes got bigger and the days got brighter. Who knew a single soap would be followed by tons of products, assorted gift packs, lovely gift certificates, adventure trips, cool gadgets and even cash! It’s not as lucky as what most people think. I had more loses than winnings. The heartbreaks from losing is worth it though once you see your name attached to the word “Congratulations”
The best part about all these is being able to share our blessings to everyone. My family loves the freebies; however, there was a time when unexpected prizes became a challenge in terms of where to place it, who to give it to or simply what to do with it. Baguio would be the answer if it was a question of where do broken hearts go as quoted from a movie. I thought I was running out of luck as winning became scarce. That’s when my wife introduced me to OLX which she knew way back from SULIT. It seems like lady luck was smiling down on us as if wanting to make us feel like winners again by means of selling some of our prizes through the said platform.
I met different kinds of people and reached places I’ve never set foot into. Some of the memorable transactions I had: After just 2 days of the ad being posted, A mountain bike was sold to a guy wanting to lose some weight by being a cyclist, A Morley Wah Pedal was also sold to an aspiring musician who’s been looking for it for weeks in different branches that didn’t have it in stock, There was also a friendly chef who bought my Timex Ironman watch which he will give as a present to his graduating younger brother and one of the most memorable negotiations i had was when a toy car collector bought my limited edition car figurine the same day I posted at OLX! Imagine how fast and easy people (including me) got exactly what they wanted. Truly with OLX we can all #WinTogether
OLX ever since has been our go to place when were in need of cash or simply have something that we believe could be more useful for other people. How about you? Have you ever sold anything through OLX? Leave a comment~
