What is Shopper Service and why do I want to participate?
First please realize that your registration gives you FREE entry to hundreds of wonderful prizes that will be given out during the convention. Additionally the convention holds optional entries for many, many additional prizes drawn and awarded at the banquet. These paid entries are collectively called the ‘Shopper Service’. Years ago attendees would bring cash, stamps, etc. to a convention and enter for same while waiting in long lines.  For Spf25Orlando by using PayPal and credit cards attendees may ‘shop’ for these entries from home, no lines in Orlando and budget their entries from month to month. There is a limit on the number of entries as explained in the Shopper Service email along with other details. You may also fully participate in these entries when you get to Orlando by bringing cash, stamps etc. You may also do a mixture of both Shopper Service ahead of time and enter at the convention if you choose. The convention keeps track so that no one enters more than the stated limits. Oh yes did we mention that one entry is for a CAR?! Someone will win a car at the convention! And dozens and dozens of lucky attendees will win CASH, Forever stamps, stamped post cards, post card stamps, major gift cards, Florida scratch off tickets and yes that car! How fun would that be?
