When Edmonton’s Darren Fredericks found out that he had won $25,000 in Go Auto’s Winnertime contest, he was speechless to say the least.
“I thought someone was pulling my leg, to be honest,” he said. “But after a few minutes it became pretty clear that this was the real thing. I’m still trying to get my head around it.”
30 Seconds of Effort Led to $25,000
Fredericks now gets to warm his pockets with $25,000 in cold hard cash. With it, he plans to pay some bills and do some investing. “But right now I’ll take some time to think about it. I don’t really want to make any decisions right now. [25 grand] is a lot of money, so you want to make sure you make the most of it.”
Not a bad problem to have, considering he just randomly came across the enter-to-win contest in his Facebook feed. “You can’t win if you don’t enter, right? That’s pretty much all I thought about it. Didn’t think too much about it after I entered. Now here we are!”
It was actually Fredericks’ third time entering a Go Auto contest. He joins dozens of other Go Auto winners, who have combined to win over $400,000 since 2016.
Has he told anyone yet? Just the guys at work. Chances are, he says, he’ll try to keep quiet.
“I still can’t believe it. I usually don’t win anything. I’ve certainly never won anything of this size before. It’s just … amazing news.”
