A $100 giftcard for answering a few questions? I'll take it!

I often recieve email notices from a couple of places asking me to participate their survey panels.  I don't mind doing this, these are reputable businesses.  At the end of most of the surveys there is a box to check if I want to be entered into a drawing.  Duh--of course I want to be entered into a drawing.  I am a female.  We like free stuff. 

What I didn't expect was a UPS truck to pull up to our house this morning with a flat envelope addressed to me.  Inside was a letter announcing I was a winner of a $100 American Express gift card.  There are conditions listed so I read them expecting to see I was already eliminated.  Nope, I still have my gift card.  Then, there were a list of things I cannot do with the gift card.  It cannot be traded for money.  Oh, darn, I can't put it in savings.  I guess I will have to spend it.
I called my husband knowing there is some software that he would like to buy and offered the card to him.  Nope, I have to spend it on myself, he says.  Oh, darn.  I guess I am stuck with using the gift card.  Now, I really am pretty excited about this since, in the past, the only thing I can ever remember winning is a pair of bowling shoes. 
I am going shopping now, but first, just one more check of my email.  I never know what might be in my "in box".
