    Default Do you enter sweeps? How often

    Do you enter sweeps/contests often, daily, weekly??

    Do you have a system to organize them?



    I have been entering 50+ a day and so far I have been really happy with my wins. I have had 12 wins so far this year.
    I keep them in a spreadsheet and I also use RoboForm (helps enter info)
    I also use a free tool called HotKeyBind that you can use to make keyboard shortcuts.

    Where do you find out about the sweeps and how much time do you spend entering them. Tell us what have you won? You have peaked my interest.

    Hi Bridge:

    A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to enter sweeps. This was a time that was before computers were available to the "Little People." When "Walkman's" were the new next best thing. When you had to enter Sweepstates with rules on a "card" or use a "Postcard" with the address of the sweeps on one side and something else on the other. A time when you could only use the U.S.P.S to enter any sweeps. The two best prizes I won were: A standing hibatchi and a fold-up pair of scissors.

    Now, a good place to start would be a website called "Tiphero.com" They have lots of sweeps and freebies. I usually go there for lots of free samples of new products and to enter sweeps. However, some of the freebies and sweeps make you go to Facebook, and I am no longer a member of FB, so I just pass these over. However, Tiphero is an excellent website for tips of all kinds. If you happen to go there and want to check out my advice my Screen name there is: earringdesigner.

    Check it out, you ownt be dissappointed!

    I spend a few hours a day most days, some days more some I may not enter 10. But most days I enter 50 or more.

    I find them on blogs, twitter, facebook and once you get to doing them you get newsletters from blogs telling you new ones. I have added 38 new ones to my spreadsheet today. I been sharing some here, but not sure if anyone is interested (shrugs) my family and some friends think it is nuts and a waste of time.

    These are my wins this year:
    Beggin’ Party Popper fan kit
    Lalaloopsy Doll
    MOMNESIA by Lori Verni-Fogarsi: Paperback or Kindle
    SISTERS IN LOVE by Melissa Foster: Kindle book
    BURNING HEARTS by author Alice Bright
    NeaterFeeder
    2 Snickers bar
    Skinny Cow Candy
    $10 Paypal GC
    Steam Horse Men's Wool Sweater ($95)
    $50 iTunes card

    I am totally amazed at how many awesome prizes are out there to be won!!

    I usually have so many listed in my spreadsheet that I can't do them all daily, and I have a separate tab for one time entries.
    I usually steer away from big trips and things that might be a tax burden (unless it is something I love)!

    I do! My best wins have been:

    * an ipad
    * tickets to a college football game (for DH)
    * tickets and getting to go on field for pre-game warm up for the local NFL team (DH loved this one!)

    ~No I don't sign up for contests. I don't like the invasion of privacy. They put you on their junk mail, junk email and junk calls lists and if you win, you sign away rights to your name, location and image forever for their promotional benefit.
    I'm tempted to sign up for many of the big one(trips and remodels)but those terms and conditions pages scare me away. :/~
