Last week's winners revealed.
Welcome back to the Reason Weekly Contest! This week's question is:
A three-part series in The New York Times combed through the multi-paged "terms of agreement" in credit card and smartphone contracts. Please tell us one surprising sentence or clause lurking in the fine print.
How to enter: Submissions should be e-mailed to email@example.com. Please include your name, city, and state. This week, kindly type "FINE PRINT" in the subject line. Entries are due by 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, Nov. 9. Winners will appear Nov. 13, right here at Reason.com.
In the case of identical or similar entries, the first one received gets credit. First prize is a one-year digital subscription to Reason magazine, plus bragging rights.
