November’s MVO is mexicansuzita!

Congratulations to mexicansuzita, November’s Most Valuable Oodler. With Oodle in hand, she tells us her GSN story, and shares an entertaining story about a reaction her husband had after she won a $250 Sweepstakes!


Hi Everyone!

My name is Susan and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am November’s MVO!!  What a HUGE surprise and honor to be able to say that!!  Let me start first by saying that I am a huge fan of The GSN Channel.  Watching that channel sparked my curiosity about the website so I thought I’d try it out.  When I signed up for GSN years ago it was only a few days after my Paternal Grandfather’s passing.  He always instilled in me to be proud of my heritage and taught me a few Spanish words when I was younger.  So in his memory I chose the screen name “mexicansuzita” because yes I am Mexican and second, Susan in Spanish is Suzita.  I am 51 years old and I have been married for 28 years.  I have also been blessed with the gift of Motherhood.  I have 2 children who are the core of my heart, a 19 year old son Ryan, and a 14 year old daughter Carly.  I also have a Himalayan Munchkin Cat named Beau who we spoil rotten.   Recently, Beau was featured on The Players Pets section of The Players Corner so if my user name looks familiar you probably seen it there.

When I first received the invitation to become November’s MVO I couldn’t believe my eyes!  I was so shocked and happy I literally ran around the house saying “OMG, You guys won’t believe this!!” over and over again.  When my family found out they immediately said “That’s so cool!!” and I’ve been smiling from ear to ear ever since.  To me this is such an amazing honor and I am truly humbled by it.   My journey on GSN over the years has made me a believer that people CAN actually win something.   Believe me, I used to say to people “If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all! (lol)  I used to log into GSN and I would go straight to My To-Doodles and get those done and start playing the games.  Then one day I started to do a little exploring on the site.  That’s when I found The Players News,  The Players Corner, Winner Listings, Auction Winning Bids, etc, and I learned new things.  That’s also when I started gaining Oodles.  So now when I log into GSN I get my tokens, play ChaChingo, and immediately go to Player News.  The reason for that is because for one, they always post the secret word there for the daily question, and they explain in detail all promotions they are running.  A lot of the time they even give Promo Codes for free Oodles when “glitches” occur and I give The GSN Team a lot of credit for fixing glitches as swiftly as possible.

I always go to prizes after I’m done playing my games and enter 10 chances for the daily money give-aways.  One morning I opened up my email and read that I had won the $250 dollar drawing.  I couldn’t believe it!  My husband’s response?  “Yea right, I’ll believe it when I see it!”  Sure enough, soon after I received the check in the mail my husband told me I could play on GSN anytime I wanted!  I still laugh over that one! That was my very first win.   When I went to The Players Corner and seen that you could submit a story about your pet and if your pet story was chosen you could win 1000 Oodles, I thought I’d give it a try.  I was just tickled pink when I seen my beloved Beau’s picture and story posted.  I have always read the MVO stories and thought to myself “That would be so awesome to win that!”  I also thought you would probably need to have about a million Oodles or something to get that Golden Oodle and let me be the first to say “I stand corrected!”  Trust me, I don’t have one million Oodles but what I do have is one heck of a very grateful heart!   I like to save Oodles to buy prizes.  Sometimes it really pays off because a few times I’ve purchased “Oodelectibles” which I’m a huge fan of and I’ve won Oodles for guessing the right winner of certain contests they run.  I also used my Oodles to buy the Blue GSN Magnet in the prize section.  I was surprised at just how fast I saved up 15,000 Oodles!   When the magnet came I was very happy with the size of it and it looks beautiful on my refrigerator.  Eventually, I would like to get a magazine subscription and I like to donate to the Breast Cancer Foundation.  I hope that one day there will be a cure for that horrible disease because it’s taken so many lives, 3 of my own Aunts included.

I’ve also purchased the scratchy tickets and I have won a lot of Oodles on them.  I have always loved playing scratchy tickets at home and I thought it was really neat that GSN had them.  I know some of you may be skeptical about those but usually if I lose on one ticket I’ll try a different ticket and most of the time I win on those.  They really do have high winners too because twice I won 5000 Oodles!  As far as the Wonder Wheel goes, I have my good days and I have my bad days.  So what I’ve chosen to do is to save up my spins.  That way if I’m not doing so good  I’ll just stop and play it some other time.   When I’m sick I always tell my husband or son to just log me in so I get my daily bonus.  My tip for the Basket Case game is to move the baskets a little slow and it also helps to know what order the color of the baskets are in.  That way if you have to you can just move to the left or right and get the correct basket.  My favorite of the 3 Wonder Wheel Games is the Horse Race.  I usually earn the most Oodles on that game.

I would have to say my favorite games to play are Deal or No Deal, The Wheel of Fortune Slots, and I’m a Bingo Lover at heart so I absolutely love playing The Video Bingo Deluxe and Mondo Bingo.  I love how they always “theme” Video Bingo Deluxe so you can work your way up to one million tokens.  Even if I don’t get the million tokens it’s always so fun to play!   A few times I’ve done the booster purchase because it’s really helped me win tremendously.   I’ve also gone over to the cash part of GSN and I’ve played against other people for Oodles.  So not everything over there costs money.  With that being said I’d really encourage you to go to that section because I’ve had my fair share of fun there too.  The saying “You’ve got to play to win” really is true.  Even if you don’t want to give up too many of your Oodles for prizes one entry could make you a winner so think about it!  Last but not least, NEVER think you can’t win because YOU CAN!!  There are so many opportunities given out daily for all of us to win and I never thought in a million years I would win MVO but here I am!  So Good Luck to all of you and oodle on!!   Again, Many, Many Thanks to GSN and to Angel for the Golden Oodle!.  I truly feel like I’m a part of a huge family now and I will treasure my Golden Oodle always and display it with pride!!

  8. Congrats from a former MVP and bingo lover! Have you tried Bingo Bash yet? it’s more rewarding to play it thru FaceBook & doesn’t pay Oodles, tokens, or any cash prize but is as habit-forming as Mondo, which I also like. Anyway, have a happy month. I still smile when I walk past my Golden Oodle!

    • Thank You so much! This month has been so memorable for me and I will NEVER forget it!! My Golden Oodle makes me smile every time I walk past it also. I haven’t stopped smiling since being named November’s MVO!! I feel so blessed and so honored to have been chosen and I absolutely love Bingo just as you do. I do get on Facebook but I don’t usually have the time to play most of the games on there. I have too much fun here!! I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed meeting all of the people here this month. It has been such a rewarding experience and I will definitely chat with other fellow MVO’s as well as anyone else who feels like chatting! This entire experience has been such an incredible blessing to me and with Thanksgiving coming up I sure do have a lot to be thankful for!! God Bless and Best of Luck in oodling!!

    • Hello Rsejesn,

      I’m not sure I understand your request, but if you haven’t seen a doctor since you were hit by a tree, I’d recommend seeing one. GSN Scoop
