This morning we selected the winners for the ‘My Top 5 Costco Items’ contest, the first AddictedToCostco.com contest ever. Again, I just want to say thanks to everyone that was willing to share their top 5 Costco items with the readers of my blog, and the contest sponsor.
If you’re curious, the process used to select the winners was to start a Python shell, import the random module, seed using the current time, then retrieve random integers between 0 and the highest numbered eligible comment plus 1. Each random number was matched to a comment number and if that contestant had followed all of the rules, they won a Costco Cash Card. Winners were picked from 3rd to 1st place order. Unfortunately, we had to draw a total of six numbers since three of the selected entrants did not have complete responses. In these cases, new winners were selected, resulting in the final contest winners.
Without further ado, the contest winners are:
- Winner of the $100.00 Costco Cash Card, was Erin with comment #5.
- Winner of the $50.00 Costco Cash Card, was Adam with comment #17.
- Winner of the $25.00 Costco Cash Card, was Saige with comment #31.
Congratulations to the three winners and thanks to everyone that added their top 5!
