View Full Version : If you were here last year...

December 29th, 2006, 6:08am
I was in awe of the number of sweeps expiring this month (2,516) until I looked at last December's expired sweeps...3,393!!! So I was wondering...for you veterans who were plugging away last year at this time, how many prizes did you end up winning from the "expires Dec. 31" sweeps? :smile9:

I don't recall winning any. And, after taking a look at my January and February 2006 wins, I don't think any of those were from contests that ended in December. :worry:

I'm hoping for better luck this year.

December 29th, 2006, 6:35am
Ive never won a dec 31st sweep.

December 29th, 2006, 6:45am

December 29th, 2006, 6:54am
nothing - but I never give up and I still get excited when a large amount of sweeps expire

December 29th, 2006, 7:33am
1 contest, I didn't get notified until Feb, but at least it was a win :) I have higher hopes this year, I would like to break the $1,000 mark :) :gvibes: :gvibes: :gvibes: :gvibes:

I keep up to date with my sweeps on a daily basis, so I don't do that frantic end-of-the-month thing. We receive prizes on a steady basis. I usually know who the prize is from, but I don't always remember from which sweepstakes it was from and when it ended; and I don't really have a desire to have to know which particular sweepstakes it was from. Knowing who it's from is good enough. Of course, there are those anonymous surprise prizes that just show up!! :gvibes:

I know I won one, and I was notified at the beginning of March. I don't think I won any suprise ones with no notice in the box from that day.

December 29th, 2006, 8:30am
I won 1 from an early Dec sweep but none from the 31st.

I agree! I posted this because I had read someone's post a couple of days ago in another thread that said she won 7 prizes from last Dec 's sweeps. Got me all excited, lol!

luv your lil dancin guy nobi, ha ha
Thank you, feta! :)

December 29th, 2006, 8:52am

good luck

i won a Dec 31st sweep and was notified in July :laugh:

December 29th, 2006, 9:29am
I believe the magic number was 4. I may have won some other smaller ones from that month, but I really didn't keep track. The biggest win was the humungous grill and $300 gift card from Miller Brewing Co. I also won 10 one night stay certificates from Hilton Garden Inns. The certificates are expiring in a few days and I still have 5 left. I received them late because the Co. accidently sent the wrong prize, so a week ago, I called the contact number and explained the situation. They already had all my info right there, so they knew I was telling the truth. I asked them if they they would be willing to extend the certificates a few months and they got back to me a few days later. They are sending new certificates that will expire in April! Great Co. to deal with! If anyone else had a similar problem, it'd be worth your time to contact them. Never hurts to ask.

0 :frown3:

December 29th, 2006, 9:39am
zero here also :frown3: maybe this year will be better :)

December 29th, 2006, 9:39am
none :frown3:

December 29th, 2006, 9:43am
1 little one....but I don't even remember what it was! :laugh:

December 29th, 2006, 9:52am
I don't think I won any.

December 29th, 2006, 9:55am
I didn't win any of them either. :frown3:

December 29th, 2006, 10:03am
I won an XBox 360 from Toys R Us last December. That sweeps actually ended on the 24th though.

December 29th, 2006, 11:13am
I won 7-8 small ones and I think I got the last one in August.

December 29th, 2006, 11:23am

December 29th, 2006, 11:31am
I guess I have no idea how many I won from those expiring Dec 31st last year. I don't check my wins and keep track of when they expired. But, I'm grateful 2006 was my best year ever!

I also enter the sweeps when they newly posted only, not about to expire.

December 29th, 2006, 11:35am
Goose egg. :frown3:

December 29th, 2006, 11:37am
I don't believe I've ever won one of those.
But there's always a first time! :smile9:

December 29th, 2006, 11:44am
My wins from last year's sweeps ending 12/31 was the same as my wins from the previous 3 years for 12/31--NADA, ZIP, ZILCH, ZERO!!! I am beginning to feel like I am wasting my time entering anything that ends on 12/31. I don't win as much as many of the people here, but I feel like I have my share of wins. How can I never win one of those? :worry:

December 29th, 2006, 11:47am
COME ON!!! LET'S BREAK THIS DROUGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:cheer7: :jump: :cheer7: :jump:

ultimate winner
December 29th, 2006, 11:53am

December 29th, 2006, 11:55am
i won a cookbook - it actually broke my, what i think was, 14 mo long losing streak! :gvibes:

Novemeber and Dec have been very kind to me, i look forward to what the new year brings!

December 29th, 2006, 11:57am
I won (received notification or received item)

7 things in December last year
12 things in January
7 wins in February

Don't remember which ones were from end of year, but it didn't 'feel' like I'd done all that well, until I look at the totals.
