Out of the blue in 2019, I got a call from Amazon. The person on the line informed me I had won $10,000 in Whole Foods gift cards, part of a sweepstakes I was entered into by using my Amazon credit card at the organic grocer. Obviously, I figured it was a scam. I called an Amazon PR rep, who was initially incredulous. Then later he texted me back and told me it was real. What are the chances? I didn’t accept the free grub, but I did write about it.
