A better reason to sign up with Sandbox?

Mo Twister's Cash in the Box!

Ok, so who exactly is Mo? If you don't know him, there's still time to start listening to his radio show Good Times with Mo, Mojo and Grace Lee, 6 to 9am Monday to Thursdays at Magic 89.9. I've been following it, using it as my alarm clock even, for a few months now and I must say, it's fun! Not always classy, but always funny! Sure helps break the monotony of the morning grind. In fact one of the ways they liven things up is through some of the contest they play or the topic they ask listeners to contribute their thoughts on. Calling and joining might just land you a ticket to a hot concert (like the EHeads concert last March and the Davids last month) or even GC to places like Hotel Sofitel's Spiral.

So to go back to the game... This is something like that, except it's even better! Every day (at least everyday they're on, which is actually 4days/wk) they give away money. All you have to do is be lucky enough for your phone number to get called, and then to actually know how much they're supposed to be giving away that day. So how could you know? It's really quite simple really, all you have to do is read his blog at sandbox. You have to sign up first though.

Yesterday, they gave away P25,371.14 and P10,748.69 today. Not bad huh? Sure beats any concert ticket or even GC to Spiral. Oh, and one last thing, Mo is calling random numbers from a list he has from somewhere. Yesterday he said there's about 200 there, so fat chance that your's is in there, so even if somehow you managed to get somebody who's already on sandbox to tell you the price, you still have to actually sign up, comment on his blog and give your number so he can include it in his list.

The question that's begging to be asked now is: How do I know that it's not rigged to allow only predetermined people to actually win a prize?

I think this is the real deal. For one thing, they call people who don't seem to know the answer because they are simply unaware of the contest. That in itself is nothing because that part too can be stage-managed. Although I mention this because I read an entry in sandbox earlier about Mae, a blogger who's also on sandbox, lamenting her lost. She was actually the 2nd or 3rd one called today ( I can't remember except that one they called was guy with a really loud dog), and she just wasn't prepared. I'm pretty sure she's not lying about that. Still, that's not incontrovertible proof, even if it's pretty good. Another reason why I say this is they don't just call people who knows the show, yesterday, a woman they called begged off and hanged up on them. I'm sure that couldn't be good for their self-esteem, so I doubt they'd rig it that way.

And of course, what do you lose if you give it a try? 5 mins of your time, maybe? Or none if you end up enjoying sandbox. Oh, and I hear they're giving away P40K on Monday to celebrate their 4th Anniversary. Forty thousand pesos! For me, that's 40,000 reasons to sign up!

And of course I have a better reason to believe this game is the real deal, indisputable as far as I'm concerned. What is it? Let's just say I'm P10,748.69 richer after today.

Woah. Are you seriously telling me you won? Hahaha, that's awesome. :D

philos said...

I actually used the word amazing, but yeah hehe... that's a subject for another entry though, when I actually collect. :)

actually, nahihirapan ako sa sandbox.. hindi ko maintindihan kung papaano gamitin tsk tsk..

darkjedi said...

This isn't one of your tall tales now, or is it?

joyfulchicken said...

Blowout?

philos said...

@Fjordz: It does take some getting used to navigating... truth is, I've only used the My Groups portion of it to blog and stuff. That part is pretty fun though... that's where you set your profile, write blogs, and most of all, that's where you can find this particular contest hehe

@darkjedi: Hmm... now if this was one of them tall tales I tell, wouldn't I have put a more interesting spin to it?

@JC: Yeah, I think the Magic would definitely blowout the Lakers at some point... quite possibly game 2 if they lose game 1 :p

Baoru said...

What? I don't get it. How did they get your number?

keb said...

Well, great info. Keep posting! Gotta try sandbox. Hehe.

philos said...

@PM: You don't have to be a fan of the radio show to win though, you just need to be ready... so uhmm, sandbox? :p

@KM: I asked Mo (by commenting on his Sandbox blog) to include it in his list of numbers. What's confusing you anyhow?

@Keb: Thanks! Good times! :)

ALiNe said...

Di nga??? congrats! Libre ...heheh

philos said...

@Aline: Hehe.. Can't believe it myself. :)

Baoru said...

The gimmick. Anyway, were you able to collect already?

philos said...

@KM: Nope, they're supposed to call me within this week to inform me when the cheque is ready. Go join! You still have time! 40K tomorrow!!

Baoru said...

Hahaha...ok, unless you collect, it might be just a gimmick. :-P
