Thread Details

Time for a new thread!

Please use this thread to brag & boast about the C&S you won.
Please do not bump an expired contest to tell others that you won.

slickdeals.net does not condone cheating to win more than one prize when it's only one prize per person or household. so if you won more than what you're allowed, against the sponsors' rule, please do not brag or boast about it.

I've seen people win cars...my biggest win was a vacation to New Zealand, with a value of $15,000...but later the arv was reduced lower based on actual cost. I've also won $10,000 before.

I've seen people on other boards win houses and $100,000 prizes...but I really can't prove those wins, and I wouldn't feel right meddling by looking into it. Those things give me a lot of hope. Would be great to win a mega prize.

Wow, lots of great wins lately - congrats to all the winners and soon-to-be winners Smilie
I completely agree with Implode about not altering your lifestyle to enter sweeps; do whatever is fun or convenient for you personally. I've only been at it since June but have had pretty good luck only spending couple hours per day on average. Lately, between a crazy month with deadlines at work and all the holiday shopping, have really slowed down on entries and even skipped entire days. But just today got email I won the daily prize of 2 t-shirts and a hat in the 47 Days of 47 Brands sweeps, worth $96. And earlier in the month, scored a Wii U from Burger King and an iPod Touch from a luggage company on FB. Last month, got a call from ePrize that I won the Kmart Big Layaway $500 gift card...twice! Already received $1,000 in gift cards from that, so it's been a really lucky few weeks. Recommend anyone just getting into it to try and be consistent and enter at least a few each day; never know when you'll be a winner.

My biggest win was $10,000 and at the time I wasn't a sweeper at all. I would enter here and there but once I won that I was hooked. I've won lots of things since then, can't remember all of them and I don't keep track like some do, not sure why. Probably because it would eat into my time entering more sweeps. laugh out loud I like the small wins too...it is awfully nice to open the mail and get a surprise $25 gift card when I am dead broke. Very nice.

One of my most memorable wins wasn't a huge prize but it was so cool for my kids at the time. A huge cooler filled with tons of candy and I won it by writing an essay. I really enjoyed that one because it was based on an essay and they picked mine over the others, just meant a lot to me. Smilie

So I've been sweeping for years and I always seem to win something exactly when we need it. I don't believe it is luck at all. Smilie

I started actually "sweeping" in January this year, and it's been a great first year. I'm certainly hooked! I've won over $21,000 in prizes this year, including 3 amazing trips worth about $5,000 each. I realize I probably shouldn't expect those results every year, but for me, the chance at another great vacation or a large cash prize is certainly worth the couple hours a day I spend on entering.

I have a friend who has been doing this hobby much longer than me, and spends more hours a day entering, but has won far less this year. I think one reason is they are more focused on entering every single thing they can find. For me, I try to create a strategy, and focus on things I really would enjoy winning. For example, I'm not going to add a sweepstakes to my daily entry list if it runs for two months and the prize is a $25 item I'll never use.

Anyway, to keep the thead on topic, it's been a very slow November for me. My wins for the month have included a couple local radio contests for tickets, a Ram Prize pack, and a $50 NFL shop gift card. I think this week is the first week all year that I haven't got a single win e-mail! Guess I should expect these dry spells.

Guess I'll chime in since it's almost my one year anniversary here. Smilie I'd just like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone on here. Because of you wonderful people taking the time to share these sweeps I've had an amazing year!

I stumbled across the Zyrtec dog park contest (anyone remember that one?) late last year and won a Samsung Galaxy tablet. I'd never won anything before and was super excited, so I started searching for more sweeps/contests and found this forum. Thanks to all of you, my haul for this year has been:

New Whirlpool Range valued at $1200
Almost $1000 in various gift cards
Somewhere around 20 free movie tickets
A huge assortment of small promotional items and free product coupons.

I normally only enter M-F and take weekends off. Sometimes If I don't have much going on I'll do the IWG's or enter for the high dollar stuff. I'm Having a bit of a dry spell but I'm here every day reading everyone's wins and it gives me the motivation to keep going. So, THANKS again and I wish everyone lots of luck and big wins in the near future!

I've been following this forum since this summer. I enter a handful of sweeps and iwgs b/c I only try for prizes I really want or need. I have no idea how much time I spend b/c I enter here and there throughout the day while I'm working on other stuff.

I recently won a $5 dominos gc from the shoprunner game. Thanks to all who help make this forum welcoming, fun, and helpful. Smilie
