View Full Version : Instant Wins & Referrals

Is it worth it to refer family and friends on sweepstakes, including instant wins? There's several instant wins that I refer others so I can increase my chances of winning. Have you won an instant by referring other people. Actually, I have 4 other e-mail addresses & my mom that I send referral to

I have never personally found that it pays off to do referrals but if you have the time, go ahead, it can't hurt. I can barely make it thru the daily entries as it is.

hmm, my friends DON'T want me referring them. I have used my alternate accounts/ various versions of my name when I really wanted the extra entries but it never did me any good so I usually just enter my one account to simplify things and avoid the extra emails. i also check no to email/ mail/ phone contact.

I have won a few instants AFTER filling in the "tell-a-friend" page.
I would recommend checking out the sweepstake buddy listing we have here somewhere on OLS than using friends who don't want a bunch of sweeping emails. None of my family or friends want them.
You are welcome to use me as well - isavegas@yahoo.com. Good luck!

I have won several instant wins by referring friends. Mostly I used my husband's email addresses. I won the Canon EOS 6.3 megapixel camera from Circuit City by using the refer a friend feature. I won on the first spin after referring a friend. I also won a gift basket from Orbitz once after referring friends. So when it comes to instant wins, if it gives me extra spins or entries for referring, I always do it.

I am still waiting for the $50 T-mobile video sports game. I had some refer me on that to it and I won the first time I played via that referral.
