Congratulations to everyone else but me.... I enter every single entry contest every month along with any dailies that I have the time for and haven't won a single thing in over a year except for silly stuff like beer openers...

I'm beginning to think I should just give up... sorry for the self pity party, but I was really hoping for some x-mas presents or something, but it's not looking good this year...
I enter a lot more then you, and have won a bottle of coke in last 6 weeks. This is a hobby and not a profession.

TIP:
How to identify a telemarketer quickly---background noise indicates a call center. An Echo in the background identifies a voice over IP call. A pause before connection to caller indicates a robo call system. A winning call will identify you by name and not dance around you being a winner.

heartPeace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures. And however undramatic the pursuit of peace, the pursuit must go on.

It does seem like others have been lucky lately but I assure you, you are not alone... It must be a build up to a really big win Wink. I, personally, haven't had luck with the single entries only the daily and instant wins.

Congrats to everyone who has won lately, I'm sure my turn will come.

LOL on the Christmas presents! I already told my sisters that they were getting something that I won or got for free for presents this year! Now to decide who gets the Twizzler beach towel, glow-in-the-dark condoms, horn-shaped shot glasses, steel wallet, "Thit" t-shirt, etc. (I am 100% serious!) I enter contests for fun and it gives me something to do while I watch TV. I love it when I win and I get excited when I see other people win!

Time for you to win dream home, take the cash...and get them something amazing. hug I think what drives all of us is how awesome would it be to win a lot of cash or a car. And some like myself even good tickets to a sporting event. I want an experience beyond my means.

I agree with the other posters about this being a hobby, and dry spells do happen, but a year and only 1 prize? I would say it's time to re-evaluate how, what, and how often you are entering. Without knowing your routine, it's hard to say but you mention entering everything every month. Is that mostly single-entry? If so, I would say that's a good part of the problem, as I find those to have about the lowest odds of all, ironically. They theoretically give everyone the same chance, but the problem is they also get a lot more people entering. I have only been seriously doing sweeps for about 5 months and think I average 4-6 wins/month since I started. That's with 2-3 hours/day of instants/daily/single entry. I find my best odds by far are with the instants; they typically have smaller prizes but any win is better than nothing. Have gotten a couple of nice wins with daily entries, even ones where I only get in the last day or two. Twitter also tends to have pretty good odds as a lot of people don't like to bother with it.

I don't find myself particularly lucky either, as most of my "sweeper" friends who enter daily have pretty regular wins as well. I recommend taking a serious look at what you have been doing and then try to figure out how to switch things up. Try getting some variety into your routine, entering at different times of day, etc. Of course there is no guarantee, but I have a hard time believing you're just that unlucky. I'm pretty sure that if I went even 6 months without a single win, given the time I spend, I would probably quit the hobby. Focus on finding the ones with better odds to keep you motivated.

I'm in a massive dry spell myself but like others have said you should re-evaluate how and what you're entering. I've had -0- luck in the past 3 months on instant wins and it's been over a month since I've gotten a winning email or surprise in the mail.

It happens, there's no guaranteeing that you'll win Christmas or that you won't. Put your name in the hat enough times and it's bound to be drawn someday. You just need to be consistent.

Thanks everyone for your support and good ideas. I certainly think of this as a hobby and try not to whine for not winning... I guess I was just feeling a lousy case of the negativity blues last night...

I'm all better now and you won't hear another peep out of me! I promise! Smilie

We all have days like these hug
The way I see it is it's something to have fun with and cheaper than going to the casino with about the same odds LOL. Smilie

Congrats to everyone for your wins! You've all inspired me to start entering sweepstakes, which I did about 4 weeks ago.

Last week I won (and today I received) 2 nfl tickets to the Jets@Rams from the HH Gregg sweepstakes. Very good seats and the total face value for both is $180.

I'm not expecting returns like this often, but it's a nice start. Thanks again, everyone!
