How many times have you signed up for a contest, and forgotten about it?
That's pretty much was Carney resident Jo Ann Carolan did.
But in a twist, she also won. Carolan was one of ten people across the U.S. to win 1,000,000 customer rewards points from Walgreens. The prize totals about $1,000 in cash, according to a Walgreens spokeswoman.
Claiming her prize on Thursday afternoon at the store at 9616 Harford Road, Carolan said it was hard to believe that she'd won.
"I got an email saying I was a winner, and I just couldn't believe it," Carolan said. "I read it three or four times, I thought 'I wonder if this is a scam or if it's real' I've never won anything before."
The giveaway was part of a promotion for a new customer loyalty program at Walgreens called Balance Rewards.
