Has anyone finished entering all of the contests ending on December 31st yet? I just finished the 31st page of sweeps! I hope to have them all done by Friday (except of course, the ones that will be newly added after then :wink4: ). GLTA!!!! Hope to see lots of OLSers posting wins in January!

I went through all the premiums and with another blizzard coming, I plan on having oodles of time to go through the freebies over the weekend.

I really hate going through them all, but I won around 7 or 8 of them last year, so I'll make myself do them again. :)

Still working on them. I'm on page 39. Somehow December 31 expirations had slipped my mind until last week. Good luck to all!

No but, I know I have entered a ton of them while sweeping anyways so not too overly worried about it.

Good luck all!

I finished just now, woohoo! It took me forever - I spent a big part of this morning going through them, then a couple of hours tonight. Now I get to go to bed. :rolleyes:

I hope all that work pays off! If not for me, then for a lot of lucky OLSers! :cheer7: :gvibes:

About 1/3 through on page 9. (I have 50 sweeps per page, so there's only 25 pages)

I finished them last night, took me over 3 hours. Slept all morning from being up entering them. Whew!!!

I know I've asked this before, but I still never got an answer. So, here goes again.

If you don't enter the sweeps until the end of the month, what about all the sweeps that expire on each day of the month? Don't you end up missing out on all of them? I had 42 sweeps expire on one of those days!! :gvibes:

im on page 36....maybe tonight i can finish up. Its been a while since i have won anything substantial. Hey and dont forget we have the dream house to look forward too.

I have pretty much finished. I don't enter every single one. I enter for the things I really would like to have. I don't need t-shirts, hats, download codes, or anything under $10. I go for trips, events, golf, and child related things.

Good luck to all!

Each day's sweeps are listed under Expiring Sweeps. The December 31st sweeps they are talking about are ONLY for December 31st, and there's a TON of them (Over 1,000, I believe).

I do daily expirations and also go out a few days to make sure I catch them all.

I have been doing them by category, single entry, daily, etc. and find I can scan them much faster this way...just about done!

Oh, I get it now; but isn't that nerve racking to do it that way? :goofy3:

I haven't started yet. I do the new sweeps and expiring sweeps every day, but every time I go through the large number of sweeps that end on the 30th or 31st of the month, I always pick up a few I missed the first time around, not sure how I missed them. It also gives me another shot at entering the dailies that I thought were worth one or two entries but not daily entries. I can zoom through them quickly since I am only looking for anything I missed. Good luck to all! :gvibes:

Yeah, but I think a bunch of us are running behind!

I would love to just have all the posted one-time-onlies entered, but life keeps getting in the way. :) From now on, I swear, I'm entering any sweep ending on the last day of the month, the day it's posted to the site!

Just started today and got to page 20 and got bored and came here to the forums instead, much more interesting but I cant win here unless I enter the MOC's which I do far and few between

Congrats to all who have finished and lets get going all you like me, it's just around the corner and time is running out - Good luck everybody :cool2:

Another question:

So, if you only enter sweeps when they're expiring, does that mean you only enter the daily's, weekly's, monthly's, etc., once?

Only 1/3 of the way through the premiums..If I finish that, I'll start on the freebies..hope everyone wins something!
