Chicago, IL - The queen of daytime TV has done it again!
It's not the first time audience members have left a taping of Oprah Winfrey's show with a little something special. But this is different.
Instead of getting a brand new car, or having their debts paid off, folks who saw today's show got one-thousand dollar debit cards. But they can't go out and be frivolous with them.
Instead, the money has to be used for charitable purposes. It can be split among charitable causes or given to one person - though relatives aren't eligible.
The more than 300 people in the audience also got DVD recorders to tape their stories, which will turn up on a future show.
