I'm on a lucky streak lately.   For the last few weeks, I've been getting postcards, letters and phone messages informing me that I've won several trips.  What's the catch with these free trips?

One trip was a cruise to the Caribbean.  Another one was for free airfare anywhere in the US.


As you can see from this particular postcard, I would get two round trip tickets, a three day getaway and if I called within 48 hours, a bonus $50 gift card.  Sounds great.

Did I call?  No.  I didn't call to claim any of my free trips because there has to be a catch.  You know the saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Have you gotten any offers like these?  Were they legit?

Until I win a trip that I actually signed up for, I won't be packing my bags anytime soon.
