even if you don't want the Grand prize? I have entered 2 or 3 sweeps lately where I really don't want the grand prize but would love to win one of the lesser prizes.

So, do you enter these types too?

Just curious.

Absolutely! If there are several desirable prizes, I will enter the sweep.

I sometimes pass. Depends on my mood at the time I suppose.

Absolutely!!! There are tons of sweeps that have lots of 1st & 2nd place prizes which I would prefer to win instead of the GP. :cool2:

Yes, yes and again yes. Chances are better you will win one of the desired multiple smaller prizes, than the one chance for the Grand. GL! :)

YES! Your chances of winning the grand prize aren't that great anyway.

it depends.............if I know that I would be unable to accept the grand prize then I do not enter........but if I can accept the grand prize even though I would prefer to win the others....Absolutely!

If there's a total of 3 prizes and I only want one of them, I usually don't enter because the odds are good that if I do win, it won't be the prize I wanted.

If there's one grand prize that I don't want and a bunch of smaller prizes that I do want, I enter for the smaller prizes.

In two years I've won one grand prize I didn't want and I just ignored the email affy.

Definitely! My biggest win came while I was just hoping to win a $50 Big lots gift card! Much to my surprise I won the Grand Prize $10,000 cash, and to top it Off they sent me a $50 Big Lots gift card too!

If you win and you don't take the GP, don't tell anybody.:nono::nono:
Yes I have entered a sweep in which I preferred the smaller prize and I would bet that the majority of us have.

Yes I do most of the time if there alot of other prizes I would like to win. I actually did that with one contest and won the Grand Prize.. lol.. go figure. I was just trying to win a grocery card and ended up with a Trip to Maui Hawaii..... Yes I did accept it and will be going hopefully in June. :)

That happens more and more with me. I want the first prize but not the GP.

Oh yes, because a lot of the grand prizes are trips that I have no interest in but the lesser prizes are nice so I enter the sweep hoping to win a less prize.

Absolutely! If I win the grand prize, I will turn it down. Some people here think that's wrong, but NOT ME!

Sure! The odds of winning the grand prize are slim anyway and if I REALLY don't want it and win it, I can turn it down.
