I've heard that Snail mail entries tend to get more winners because less people enter them. I've only recently started entering snail mail onlies so we shall see.

A long time ago, my mother use to enter all kinds of snail-mail contest. She used to signup for some sweeps newsletter that was sent out montly. She spent a ton of time and postage entering contest. The prizes she won were nice, but nothing that great.

In the two years or so that I've been doing this, I've won a lot more than she did. I'm sure you have good odds on a snail-mail only contest, but who has the time to do it. I know I don't.

Don't worry Hunnye.... the polls have always looked like that! ROFL!! There is a glitch in the software. Brent is aware of it but it is not on the top of the priority list these days.

You can assign a value to the letters if you want. Makes it more like a poll then, but you have to post the values in the thread rather than in the poll area itself.

I said n because that best describes what I feel. lol. Back in the day snail sweeps were all there was but now that everyone's online I'm wondering if snail only has better odds. I think I win more cuz I enter 100 sweeps a day. There's no way I could do that if I had to pay postage.

Ill just do both snail and online. We'll see! I am dedicated to online sweeps every day...but I just started and I am getting anxious to win. I know it might take a while for winnings to kick in but I sure do hope I get more than a t-shirt!
Thanks for your opinions on online vs snail mail!
Good luck to everyone. :grin5: ;)
