Hello myLotters! I thought I would start a discussion about sweepstakes. I always enter in sweepstakes. They are so easy and I love to enter. I always think that I will win. I have won a lot of prizes. Nothing too big. One day I hope to win a car, that would rock! Do you enter in sweepstakes? What have you won? Here is a list of the items I have won: a) Bread maker b) RCA portable stereo (includes CD, radio, & mp3 storage/link to hook to stereo) c) iPod nano (2nd generation) d) movie tickets e) food f) money (small amounts such as $50, $100) One day I'm looking to win a big prize. If any of you could tell me a big prize you won. Have a wonderful day. Pablo

It really takes time and dedication on winning prizes because you can never get into enough sweepstakes. Moreover the odds of winning are usually slim so the more sweepstakes you enter the better you are at winning. It's just a numbers game. Have a nice day.

Wow! That's so cool! No I have never won anything that big before. Only a chocolate cake and I was six at the time. It was a school contest. I have won awards before and that was nice.

No I have not one any sweepstakes, but my father gets them in the mail all of the time. He sends them back but he has not won yet. Maybe one of the days he just might win something. It would surprise both of us if he does. But congratulations to you for the wins you have received. Maybe one of these days you will hit the jack pot. Have a good one.

Aw that's too bad that he hasn't won yet. Look in your supermarket and local stores they sometimes have sweepstakes that not many people enter. Like I said to the myLotters above it's really a numbers game so the more sweepstakes you enter the more chance you have to win the prizes. Have a wonderful day! Pablo

Yes, various places. I use about.com to enter a lot. They have a sweepstakes section on there. In your local community they have sweepstakes that's how I found about the RCA Stereo. My dad was the person who told me to enter. I really didn't even need a stereo, and I couldn't believe I won! Pablo

Wow...so how much do you enter? We just won two free 20 ounce soda (from drink1win1 contest), and a bag of free chips (from Subway)...whooohooo! I'm glad you have won all those items. You must enter in more contests/sweepstakes than me, hehehe. Have a wonderful day! Pablo

yeah I recently won subway chips too... I fill out between 500 and 700 daily entry sweepstakes a day... about 40 hourly, and then anywhere between 50 to 300 one time entries. So It's got to be around a thousand I enter a day. It's my job. I can't work outside the home and my husband is deployed for the military and so I have lots of time and want to help with the family as much as possible. It's great. Mostly I use the prizes and gifts if I don't need them and sell whatever I can't use.

I became a sweeper two and half weeks ago and so far have one four dvd's (three really - one is an extra for special movie extras) and an abc flashcard set on a key ring for my baby. I'm into it that's for sure Pablo!

I've only been doing it since the 2nd week of july and I read on fourms that it can take months to get the really great prizes. Not that I don't consider my wins really great!

Wow that's cool! I have been sweeping for years & I haven't won a big prize like a car or anyting. I usually don't enter a whole lot though. Plus with my slow connection...that doesn't help either! Pablo

That's so good that you've won so many prizes! Well, I do not enter any sweepstakes or buy lottery, hence I haven't win any prizes before. I always think I do not have this luck to win any prizes. Every time during the annual dinner, during any lucky draw session, I didn't win any prizes also.

Congratulations on your wins. I live in New Jersey and won a car and $5000.00, in Atlantic City. Boy, was I shocked. I actually was not going to stay for the drawing, so sure I wouldn't win. I was walking away from the theater, and heard my name called. I ran down those stairs like I was on the price is right. What a day that was.

I haven't won tickets from the radio. For example they where looking for the 10th caller before & I was the 9th caller so no tickets. Then they wanted the 1st caller and I was the 8th caller....then they wanted the 13th caller and I was the 1st caller! It's kind of crazy, but I haven't had any success but I am sure lots of people win things. My mom's friend won tickets before. Have a nice day.

I have won Crossword Puzzles many a times with small prizes like some good books, cricket bat, badminton racquet, jogging suit and T-Shirts. My biggest prize was a 21" Flat Color Television which I won in a technical contest on the website of a leading electronics manufacturer.

Oh yes I forgot to mention the contest/sweepstakes with Dr. Pepper we won two Dr. Pepper shirts, one Dr Pepper hat, on bottle of Dr Pepper BBQ sauce (yes the actually make it!), plus many bottles for their bottles (20 fl oz). My mom likes them a lot so that's why we won so much. I also won 7up Tshirt through their contest/sweepstakes. It's kind of nice, right? Cartoon network has a lot of contests for kids which is good.
