What happened?
I have been filling out entrys and had over 650 when the year ended and it us a bit depressing not winning a single thing. Oh well I will keep entering, but with no high hopes...actually NO hope...

Ihave seen where people are still reporting receiving wins from sweeps that ended in Oct and Nov. I think it is still too early to think you missed all the Dec sweeps. At least that is what I am telling myself.....

I had close to 2000 at the end of dec and no wins here either. I always get excited at the end of the month/year .

I was doing some serious lamenting as well just a couple of days ago. Within an hour of me posting "no wins from three consecutive Decembers" I received an email that I had won a small prize (seriously, I was so happy I almost cried) ... Maybe the same will happen for you?!!?

Best of luck!

For some reason I've hit the "I'm really depressed that i can't even win a blog after 8+ hours of sweeping a day" stage. Figured I'd take a couple days off and see how I feel.

I got an email for a really nice prize two days ago. It ended on December 1st. So there is still hope!

Heck.. you're not alone!! So many of us have had wins drop drastically..

I've only received a few "sorry you didn't win" emails from the end of 2011.. and none saying I actually won.

For 2012 I feel like I'm taking baby steps.. I started with a candy bar.. got a bottle of water.. then a baby bottle.. and last a t-shirt!

My ARV is going up... ever so slowly!

Time to win, win, win!!

You are not alone. I got absolutely nothing last yr. In fact, my last win was in 2009! SERIOUSLY! Now I am very chosy about what I enter but still, thats going thru them and entering ones every single day!!! I cant win a candy bar, a blanket-NOTHING!

But I still try! LOL

I got notified yesterday of a win of a contest that ended Dec 11th. I have been notified as much a six months after the close of a contest. Don't give up hope. I always (really) think that my instants are going to say "Congratulations" not "Try again tomorrow".

Most sweeps say 4 to 6 weeks or 6 to 8 weeks. Keep the faith. You will get a win.

I shouldnt get so specific!!! But when you religiously rack up entries daily it is a BUMMER.

Your not alone. So many sweeps and no wins yet. Hope 2012 is a better year for us all.
