Read the fine print ...

Here's why it's important to read the fine print in contests you are considering entering:

The fine print of a Dish Network/Southwest Airlines promo:
"By providing your telephone number and clicking submit you authorize DISH, Blockbuster, OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES to use this number to contact you regarding DISH and Blockbuster products and services through an automated or predictive dialing system or prerecorded message system; regardless of whether the number is on any do-not-call lists or is otherwise registered as a wireless telephone number."
This pretty much removes your number from the do not call list. 

This clause is illegal. 

By law, a contest must have an opt out.
