Do you enter online giveaways? For the past couple of years I have become addicted to entering giveaways online. I have won some fabulous products, too! I generally spend an hour or two a week entering giveaways, usually through blog posts of friends. I generally win at least one giveaway per week! I love when my free gifts arrive in my snailmail box! This past month, I won 4 books, a pair of DearFoam slippers, and a Kimbelina chenille bath robe! What have you won lately?

I often think about entering giveaways, but have never done it, at least not online. I don't usually have very good luck with things like that. It sounds like you're doing well, though!

You should try it for awhile, peavey, as you might be surprised with a win! Like you, I rarely won anything in my life, lol, but I sure do win a lot of giveaways!

Yes I enter online giveaways. I only do them with companys I know though. I also do surveys off of receipts I have won before doing them. I still do them you never know when you may win something.

Indeed you never know! I'm dedicating the next hour to hopping from blog to blog entering giveaways, LOL First, I enter for things I am interested in. Then, I enter for things for children. I've collected quite a few items and books for kids throughout the year and plan to donate them all to a pastor friend's church to add to their donations for needy children at Christmastime.

Alot of the things I enter for are for a chance to win cash or Giftcards to stores.

I enter lots of those, too. I love cash for shopping for what I need.

Wow! Sounds like you are pretty lucky. Sometimes I get in the mood to enter the giveaways and will enter 100 of them/ Other times it isn't a big priority. I have won a few things through these contests- a $50 Visa gift card, $50 cash and some other stuff. It is gret to hear that you have such good luck with it and I hope you keep enterting and keep winning! While you are at it rub some of that luck over here on me cause I need it!

I am sending winning thoughts your way, so just keep entering giveaways! I do keep entering and winning! In fact, this past week I won a "Love With Food" giveaway basket! It helps to be a blogger, which I am!

I wish I had more time to do it...but such limited time means I have to do other things. I do surveys and get points but after all the years I have done it I still haven't won a thing! LOL...you have some nice Christmas presents I think.....the slippers would be a very nice gift!

I do know what you mean about time, that's why I spend only about an hour a week signing up for the giveaways. And yes, these slippers will make a nice gift for my cold feet, hahaha! My slippers are ever so old and full of holes and I don't even own a bath robe, so these wins are welcome as well as needed. As for surveys, I rarely qualify, so I rarely do them anymore.

I do participate in online giveaways, but I only started entering the competitions a couple of months ago and haven't won anything yet. I know of one of my friends who has been doing the same thing for a couple of years now, and she has won a lot of things over the years. Within two weeks of her starting it, she won a car which was worth $20,000. She sold this, and then used the money to pay for her college fees. This was amazing for her, and it just shows what can be done when you have a bit of luck and put your mind to things.

A car? WoW! Now that would be an awesome thing to win online! And I could surely use a new one. Thanks for responding and nice to meet you, GemmaR!
