Must Haves I would buy if I won JBR’s Hi Lo Cash Grab!  Yeah, I can’t win, but it’s fun to dream!

That list is coming up, but first, I’d like to talk about what I love about our Hi Lo Cash Grab game…

It’s great to have Mix 99.5 WJBR’s Hi Lo Cash Grab back on the air!  I think I can speak for Deanna, Justin, Kyle and Mike that we all love to play this game with our listeners!

It was so much fun to play back in the spring, that we decided to bring it back in here in the fall of 2022.  I love that our listeners tune in for the game at 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. Many play while they are enjoying JBR’s mix from the 80’s to now while they are working!

And it seems to me that everyone is doing a great job of keeping track of all the guesses.  That’s really the only way to win.   Today on the first day we had guesses that were too hi and too low.

How long will it be before someone nails jackpot number 1?

Listen all day, that is your best chance to win!  Or set a reminder to listen at 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm weekdays for the cue to call.  If you are caller 9 at 732-764-9527 (save that in your phone), you’ll get to go on the air with us and take a crack at it!   Good luck!

Now, back to our Must Haves!  I love looking at these lists every week and I always find some items I would love to have!  

Must Haves I Would Buy If I Won JBR’s Hi Lo Cash Grab! 

  • Top Gun Flight Suit

    I think I found my Halloween Costume!
    You’ll find this listed in our Must Have’s of 13 80s and 90s Inspired Halloween Costumes That Are Always A Hit

  • The Hulkster Lunchbox

    Right now I bring my lunch to work in a boring black cloth lunch box.  But I think if I had the Hulkster lunch box with a cool 80’s vibe, my cool rating would trend up!

    You’ll find this Must Have under the headline, 9 Nostalgic Collectibles That Your Younger Self Will Thank You For Buying!

  • Foot Massager With Heat Function.

    You’ll find this Must Have under the headline 7 Tech Items For Your Girlfriend That Will Get You Out of Trouble.

    Well, I don’t have a “girlfriend”.  (If I did I don’t think this would get me out of trouble). However I do have a wife, and from time to time I find myself in the “dog house”.  Perhaps I should always have a gift ready to get me out of the “dog house”.  I think this may do the trick!

  • IWalk Portable Charger Bank

    If you are an iPhone user, that you get those messages (generally on Sunday mornings) about your usage on your iPhone.   This week I think it said my iPhone screen time was up something like 124% from last week.  No wonder my phone keeps running out of power.  Not really a problem though when you are at home or work.  But what if you are traveling, or enjoying extended time out doors?  Well it looks like we need a portable phone charger!  Find this and other cool travel items in our Must Haves section under the head line 9 Lifesaving Travel Items TikTok Convinced Me I Needed And I Really Did!

  • Urban Accents Popcorn Kernals And Seasoning Variety Pack

    Love Love Love Popcorn!  And my wife and I love to “Netflix and Chill”.  However she does not like it when my popcorn falls between the couch cushions or under the couch.  I need to promise to be a neater popcorn eater.  Maybe it will be my New Years resolution in a few months.  In the meantime (if I win the Hi Lo and have extra cash) I’m going to buy this gourmet popcorn set.  It’s in our Must Haves section under the headline 18 Items You Need For the Perfect Netflix and Chill Night In!

  • Ms. Pacman Logo T

    I love old school video games!  The best of all time (and I think many may agree) is Pacman and Ms. Pacman!  I’ve been known to actually get Pacman fever while playing.  One time my wife and kids left me along in an arcade while on vacation.  They went shopping and I stayed at the arcade and played Pacman.  When they got back I was drenched in sweats.  I really get intense playing Pacman.  Those demons really stress me out while I’m gobbling dots and snacks.  If you love vintage games, check out these 11 Vintage-Style Gamer Tees Must Haves!

  • Shower Beer Holder

    I first learned the term “shower beer” while on vacation at the Delaware Beaches and Jersey Shore.  Seems to be a regular thing with my group of friends.  What’s better than a shower beer on a Saturday afternoon?  I know!  A shower beer in one of those outdoor showers at the beach.  Check out the shower beer holder and all the 19 Beer Themed Items You Need As A Beer Lover !

  • Reflective Vest And Armbands

    Ok, so I balance out my beer drinking with bike rides and running.  And now that the days are getting shorter, running or riding in the dark can be dangerous.  This reflective vest would be awesome to have during those early morning runs now thru April with it being darker.  Not only darker, but colder too!  Find this and other workout items for the dark and chilly weather in our Must Haves section under the headline 9 Items of Workout Gear Perfect For Chilly Fall Mornings. 

  • Smokeless Fire Pit

    We love having people over!  And we love to have fires in the backyard on these call fall nights.  What we do like is smelling like smoke at the end of the night.  The Smokeless Fire Pit to the rescue.  I love the stainless steel look of these.  Love this Must Have list of 9 Items That Will Transform Your Backyard Into A Summer Oasis.  (but these items work well into the fall…I want the string lights too!
