That's interesting and very funny about the case of artichokes.
I some times do the HGTV cabin blog and also their big house sweepstakes.
They also have other various cash sweepstakes. I don't enter them all the
time but some times. Never won anything there but I enjoy looking at the
house decor, etc.
I get about $10,000 per year free in products through a major USA store.
I've received sewing machine, embroidery machine, scanNcut machine,
tv stand, tv stand with electric fireplace, queen size mattress, bed frame,
office desk, coffee maker, digital pressure cooker, patio furniture set, smart
watch, dog crate, laptop computer, dinnerware set, smart speaker, and lots
of other stuff. It's fun and most of it I do utilize.
There are some other sites in which I am a member and earn discounts to
free on items that I may be interested in.
