                    Yeah, that promo is weak. and cheap. about like Cabela's prize this past summer. a million dollars for a bass or trout caught with the right tag. the 1,000,000 was to be paid out over 50 years. Fifty years!

                            Seriously? Do you know what that works out to be!!!

                            $1,000,000.00 / 50 years = 200,000.00 per year

                            $200,000 per year / 12 months in a year = $1,666.67 per month

                            Normally you get paid twice per month, unless you work for the state or some other once a month company. So......

                            $1,666.67 per month / 2 times per month = $833.34 per check twice a month.

                            Two week pay period

                            $833.34 / 2 weeks = $416.67 per week

                            40 hour work week

                            $416.67 / 40 = $10.42 per hour.

                            The math don't lie!!!!

                              Ummm...Spydey...If I'm not mistaken...

                              I do believe that your calculations are OFF by a bit.

                              If you receive $200,000.00 for 5 years, you would have the 1 million (200 x 5). So, the winner would only get $20,000.00 per year (1,000,000 / 50).

                              But, you still came up with the correct figure for a monthly receipts anyway ($1,666.67). How did you do that???

                                  In my 34 years of steelhead fishing I have become a firm believer that steelhead prefer strawberry jello....I'm not kidding!!!

                                    Opps, my bad. I meant to type in 20,000.00 in both instances above, but typed in 200,000.00. Yet I calculated everything by 20,000.00 on my calcamapater. Just a little typo on my end.

                                    but still, that is crazy that they expect to have people chasing fish for a promo that really doesn't exist (the fish doesn't exist) or is near impossible to catch.

                                    the things some companies will do just to get a buck. What ever happened to good old elbow grease, a good name that was earned by good hardwork, honest customer relationship and service, as well as a sound product. Oh how priorities have changed in just the last 50 - 60 years. Sad, so sad. :(
