Awesome! Congratulations! What's your criteria for determining your 4th?

A bribe, money or otherwise?

Sutter, you were very kind to me once and i've never forgotton it, and i never will.

Believe me, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and this is almost certainly a scam.

Please be very careful.

I'm obviously a bit late on this one, but I'd still like to know what the catch is. The very idea of a free holiday for FOUR people instead of the more usual TWO would make me wonder what lies behind it. It might not be a scam in the normal sense of the word, but I bet the hotel or the 'wellness people' hope to get a bit of their money back somehow. There are so many opportunities for hidden extras, especially when one has three friends along to encourage having an extra massage, face-mask or whatever else is on offer. And the odd drink at the bar can make horrible holes in ones pocket money. For my part, I'm not taking part in any more competitions offering such prizes until we hear how this one turns out.

Enjoy the break but leave the housekeeing money and credit cards at home. Good Luck Sutter.

Re: I've never won anything before and now I just won this wow

I've heard in the past of 'free' holidays being a ruse to put pressure on winners to buy something else, eg timeshares.

It's a shame that some of us, including me have become so cynical, I really do hope that your prize is exactly what it says it is, and you and your friends have a great time.

I'd completely forgotten that one!

Edit: It might even be that there are a whole load of other 'winners' enjoying their 'prize' at the same place at the same time. Perish the thought.
